Joe Biden just got slammed for schmoozing with celebrities from an unlikely source

Lately it seems that the Biden White House is the gang that can’t shoot straight.

One blunder after another has caused Joe Biden’s approval ratings to drop into the basement.

And Joe Biden just got slammed for schmoozing with celebrities from an unlikely source.

Joe Biden managed to eke out a victory in 2020 in large part because of the corporate-controlled media’s insistence that he best personified a working class ethos.

That storyline never stood up to scrutiny since he’s rubbed elbows with political elites for longer than most Americans have been alive.

But it wouldn’t take Joe Biden very long to reach the polling doldrums.

Politically tone-deaf maneuverings have seriously tarnished the working class credibility of Joe Biden.

The optics of Biden’s latest fundraiser are a prime example of this tone-deaf behavior.

Last week, Donald Trump attended the wake of slain New York City Police Officer Jonathan Diller, who was shot and killed during a traffic stop in Queens.

Biden had different priorities, instead choosing to go to a fundraiser with celebrities.

The difference couldn’t have been more stark.

The $25 million fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee included former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.

It was attended by multiple celebrities, including the singer Lizzo.

It wasn’t a good look for a President who is already perceived to be the candidate of the elites.

Far-Left MSNBC host Al Sharpton recognized this and called out Biden.

Sharpton:  “You have to address the people and let them know you feel their situation”

“You have to address the people and let them know you feel their situation and avoiding that is to open them up toward people like Trump that can exploit that,” Sharpton said to Morning Joe co-host Jonathan Lemire. “I think that Trump going to where he knew and his people guided him to, it wasn’t like he had to stand in line, the Democrats were not going [to] talk to those people, and I think you gotta go, just going there gives you some points and then saying something to them that makes them understand that you understand them means a lot and it’s happening across the board, even in black and brown communities.”

Sharpton: Doing the “ritzy thing to raise your money” isn’t enough

He added that “I told somebody in the White House, I said, ‘you know, I’m not in the campaigns at all. If I was going to do anything in the city, a big beautiful ritzy night with the two ex-presidents, I would have had Biden that morning have breakfast in Harlem or Brooklyn or something to connect to people because the average person in New York that’s dealing with being afraid of the subway or dealing with a policeman being killed didn’t relate to a ritzy thing. Balance it out. You got to do the ritzy thing to raise your money, but let me feel like I’m part of the concern.’”

Sharpton is correct.

Recent polling has shown Trump ahead of Biden, even among those making less than $50,000 per year.

This is something that would have been unimaginable a decade ago, but both parties’ coalitions are undergoing changes.

The rich and powerful may be trending toward the Democrats, but they still only get one vote each and there are far fewer of them than there are working class voters who are trending Republican.

By continuing to neglect this large voting bloc, Biden is putting himself in more political peril at a time he can’t afford it.
