The Washington Post is being mocked for its latest puff piece on President Biden. The article titled, “Weightlifting, Gatorade, birthday calls: Inside Biden’s Day” offers a glowing look at the President’s day-to-day schedule. The article is just the latest blatantly biased coverage of Trump’s successor and readers could not help but call WaPo out for its blatant bias.
Fox News reports:
“Current and former advisers say Biden’s typical day reveals a creature of habit with well-worn routines and favorite treats, from orange Gatorade to chocolate chip cookies; a tactile politician eager to escape the Washington bubble who meets privately with people who write him letters; and the patriarch of a sprawling Irish-Catholic clan who abruptly interrupts high-level meetings to take calls from family members.”
While Parker didn’t appear to question Biden’s diet, she wasn’t so kind when she reported on former President Donald Trump’s diet back in 2016.
“Donald Trump’s Diet: He’ll Have Fries With That,” Parker wrote in the New York Times in 2016, describing him as, “a junk food aficionado” who “is hoping to become the nation’s fast food president.”
Other readers were confused by the Post’s claim that Biden loves to “escape” Washington politics when he can, considering Biden has spent more than a generation in the same “bubble.” Not only has Biden run for president three times, he’s spent almost five decades in D.C. as a senator and later as vice president.

He's been in this 'bubble' for 45 years. Give me a break. 🤦🏻 https://t.co/47bSjbNU34

Joe Biden has spent 48+ years in DC.
He’s not eager to escape it. https://t.co/2hZHFjBPnp

I must have missed when you covered Pence’s weekly lunches with Trump like this. 🤷🏻♀️ https://t.co/Z1KHUTp1Oq
