Looking back on year one of Biden era — it isn't pretty

One year into the Biden administration and grand plans of “building back better” have been reduced beyond recognition in scope and promises to “reunify” a bitterly divided country in the aftermath of the Trump era have remained unfulfilled. With even his most ardent cheerleaders appearing disappointed in his performance, what does President Biden have to say for himself, one year into his ill-fated presidency? News.Views.Hughes takes a look.

Astronomical inflation and kinks in the supply chain, coupled with mishandling of the COVID-19 crisis and continuing foreign-policy fallout from the abominably botched and long overdue pullout from Afghanistan have brought President Biden’s approval rating to abysmal new lows of 40 percent. RT America’s Natasha Sweatte breaks down the highlights of President Biden’s ill-fated first year in office before civil rights attorney Robert Patillo and former USTR official Steve Gill share their insights. Then “Eat the Press” host Steve Malzberg and Democratic strategist Robin Biro join to discuss the Biden administration’s changing relationship with the press. Then all four guests reconvene to offer Biden advice on how to improve.
