Republicans are so desperate to attack President Joe Biden that Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas) is now complaining because Biden isn’t posting chaotic unhinged tweets like disgraced former President Donald Trump did.
Since taking office in January, Biden has been low-key on Twitter. He uses it to inform the public, advocate for policy, and make statements after tragedies. What he does NOT do is bully people, perpetuate hate, whine, lie, spread conspiracy theories, or incite violence as Trump did over the last four years.
It’s refreshing to have a president who acts presidential on Twitter instead of a raging lunatic. But Cornyn apparently misses the chaos of a constantly tweeting tantrum-throwing president. So he complained about it.
The president is not doing cable news interviews. Tweets from his account are limited and, when they come, unimaginably conventional. The public comments are largely scripted. Biden has opted for fewer sit down interviews with mainstream outlets and reporters.

Biden is busy working to get the country past the coronavirus pandemic and other messes Trump left upon leaving office. He doesn’t have time to appear on cable news or go golfing. He doesn’t have an “executive time” for watching television and tweeting as Trump did. He’s doing the job Americans elected him to do, and they appreciate having a president who is informative and respectful on Twitter. They know they can wake up every morning and not wonder what bullsh*t the president has tweeted out overnight.
Twitter users mocked Cornyn in response.
And this is bad…. Why!!! After the dumpster fire your party supported I’m happy for the sense of calm we have right now. Glad to not be stressed by the president.

He’s busy fixing the problems created by the last guy who spent all his time tweeting and doing cable news shows

Exactly what I want from a President. Do the job and a quarterly press conference should be enough.

I dated someone like this.
Trying to start drama when there is none to be had.

Isn’t it terrible to have a decent, competent, normal man in the White House after four years of the former guy? Just terrible. 😂😂😂😂

And… He’s doing his job. Do yours.

And the public likes him so much better. That’s what the real problem is, right, Senator? His policies have incredible support. Your constituents are being served by someone who actually wants to do their job. It’s a new experience for them, Senator.

Sanity and decency are not a scandal. Republicans are pathetic for trying to make it one. After all the abuse and hate Trump hurled on Twitter for years culminating in an insurrection at the Capitol that could have gotten Cornyn and other lawmakers killed on January 6th— an attack that finally resulted in Trump being permanently banned on Twitter— Republicans should be commending Biden’s responsible use of social media. Instead, they are pining for hate-fueled meltdowns and personal attacks. Make no mistake, the GOP is still Trump’s party.
