I'll keep it very simple

All throughout the dump administration we heard nonstop that his base would never leave him. Scandal after scandal we heard that. Bad news (anyone remember Covid)? after bad news, we heard that. His whole administration was framed that way. Sure, he was bad. Sure, he was inept.
Sure, he lied. Sure, people were dying because of his policies. But was it a problem for him or his followeres? Nope.

Now all it takes is one stupid RW meme and the world is falling apart for Biden and the Dems. They COME OUT AND SAY IT IN THOSE WORDS. Step one: Play, discuss the stupid meme. Step two: Look very concerned. Step three: Run a headline saying it's trouble for Biden. Rinse, repeat.

Even when they have to admit that there's not much to the story or the good outweighs the bad, IT IS STILL BAD NEWS FOR BIDEN.

So, basically, calamity after real calamity in the cheato administration was framed as showing how loyal his base was. RW manufactured B.S. in the Biden administration is always framed as BIG TROUBLE for the him and Dems.

It's a stark statement of the ridiculous comparison the media is trying to pull off, not just the physical diff but the mental diff between the two men. Trump looks like he's about to drool.
