Who could have imagined that Tucker Carlson and Don Lemon would indirectly assist President Joe Biden on Monday, working together?
Biden always confronted an uphill battle when it came to announcing his re-election campaign, given his historical unpopularity and concerns regarding his advanced age.

“[A]fter more than two years of her steady leadership of the Domestic Policy Council – it’s clear: there is no one more capable, and more determined to get important things done for the American people than Susan Rice,” stated the statement.
The remainder of Biden’s statement consisted of a list of Rice’s accomplishments, including the highly divisive “Affordable Care Act.”
“Thanks to her tireless efforts, we expanded and strengthened the Affordable Care Act, released a comprehensive national mental health strategy, and finally enabled Medicare to negotiate lower prescription drug prices for seniors and cap the cost of insulin at $35,” the statement continued.
