Political pundits and Democrats alike are already heralding the Biden era as “delightfully boring,” and a return to “dutiful competence” after years of railing against Donald Trump’s constant stream of Twitter communications.
However, Fox’s Greg Gutfeld warned that what the mainstream media has branded as “decency” and “stability” just means that the Biden administration will “operate in the shadows,” hastening the end of governmental transparency.
“You just lost your access,” Gutfeld warned viewers during an appearance on The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino. President Trump communicated directly with the American people in a way that no other president ever has — and Democrats couldn’t stand it.
Trump’s direct communication with his constituents via Twitter, rallies, and other means, made it much more difficult for the media to twist his words and misrepresent his actions. Biden won’t be facing a hostile media as Trump did, and thus will be allowed to conduct his business quietly and without question from either normal Americans or the media — just as the swamp was designed.
Donald Trump made it a point to dialogue with Americans about his decisions and current events, but Biden is building a cabinet of career politicians that will work quickly to return the US to its pre-Trump state.
The media would “much rather prefer a really boring leader with body bags as opposed to a leader that might be obnoxious and tweet a lot who hasn’t started any wars and who has great foreign policy achievements without killing anybody except for terrorists,” Gutfeld explained.
“All these people operate in the shadows. They are not out and they are not transparent. They are not like Trump,” he continued. “The reason why the media likes these guys and these gals is because they have created a wall between the access.”
“So the media can get the access to these people. But the American public can’t,” the Fox star continued. “The transparency is gone. They already have the access, they like the power of being the insider. They like being cozy, they like to do the GQ profiles or Vanity Fair profiles, but if you are an American citizen you just lost your access because it was Twitter and it was the rallies that essentially were the fast pass to what was going on. That was the backdoor to politics for so many people in America.”
