Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, August 08, 2022

President Joe Biden has been the subject of a variety of meme personas over his political career. Dark Brandon, a new persona for Biden, is now rising, seemingly with endorsement from the White House itself. "Dark Brandon" is a kind of antihero with glowing eyes that doesn't take any shit.

The "Dark Brandon" meme - which combines the aesthetic of Dark MAGA (the idea that Trump will return to power with a vengeance and vanquish the Washington establishment), and "Brandon" (from the coded phrase "Let's Go Brandon" that mostly means "---- Joe Biden") - has recently been promoted by leftist Twitter, and as Slate's Luke Winkie wrote last week, is "being used to give Joe Biden's enfeebled brand some long-diminished vigor."

But the meme's reach has since expanded. White House director of digital strategy Rob Flaherty and deputy press secretary Andrew Bates embraced the "Dark Brandon" meme amid headlines touting the Democrats' latest legislative accomplishment.

Clearly, Democrats are excited to have something to be excited about, which might explain the lightheartedness - a departure from the meticulously managed media strategy that the administration has adhered to, often to the frustration of reporters, for the past year and a half. Plus, the "Dark Brandon" portrayal casts the president as a force to be reckoned with, a direct repudiation of all the chatter about Biden's political feebleness.

I absolutely LOVE THIS! Can't wait for the meme of Dark Brandon and Chuck Schumer driving Mitch McConnell into his shell long enough to pass the IRA while he was snoozing in obliviousness. As usual, when you think you're clever you end up finding out just how dumb you actually are.

Comparisons of Biden's accomplishments in 18 months dwarf MAGA Trump's over 4 years, and though myriad problems still exist, based on the last few weeks of unprecedented action (even while suffering with covid) everyone should now understand with certainty that Biden is doing all he can to improve things for all Americans.

Brandon's got MAGA malarkey to fight, don't get in his way.

If they would not have been chanting "Let's go Brandon" over and over, I might not have had to get so much done!

- Dark Brandon.

Dotard had his agenda. Other than tax cuts for the billionaires they didn't match up with McChinless' agenda so they did not get done.

Dark Brandon, quarantining with COVID got more accomplished in a week than dotard did in four years.

Sad. Low energy.

Dark Brandon is still a very old man who should not run for reelection imho. But kudos to him for the accomplishments of the past week.

I saw my first Dark Brandon meme on FB yesterday and was excited that the Dems were shoving Hawley's fist where the sun don't shine on traitorous ------ like Visitor_.

"Chocolate Carter" was only a thing for racists like Visitor_ and his GQP buddies, as President Obama had a highly consequential presidency, digging the country out of the Republican/Bush recession and passing the ACA in spite of record obstruction from McTurtle. President Obama added more jobs than the last three GQP POTUSes combined. Just like President Clinton, President Obama handed a humming, steadily growing economy to his "successor" Dotard, who then did what all GQP occupants of the WH have done during my lifetime, he passed massive tax cuts for the rich, screwed us working stiffs, especially those in blue states, and with his fat greasy little fingers, he crashed the economy. My only real complaint I have about the Obama administration is that they should had been more proactive about the GQP's strategy of obstruction and wielded his 60 vote majority between July '09 to January '10 with more vigor. They should have had their entire wishlist lined up and had a five-month votorama to get it all done, including filling every single empty judicial post. Harry Reid should have cancelled all vacations and kept the Senate in session for the entire time.

That's the point, --------. Nobody believed Trump was jacked with 8-pack abs either but that didn't stop his pathetic supporters from making memes about it. The lack of connection to reality is what makes it funny. And the more it gets repeated and shared the more effective it is at blurring the line between fiction and reality.

Your fat tub goo Gawd King can't walk down hills because of lifts in his shoes, can't drink water from a bottle with one hand, is addicted to Adderall, looked directly at a solar eclipse, and can't remember the name of his own failing social media company, calling it "Troth Sensal" at one of his Klan meetings. Dotard couldn't walk a block at the G20 a few years ago, needing the SS to find him a golf cart, and was too afraid of rain on his cotton candy hair to pay tribute to American war dead in France. In comparison, President Biden works out every morning and rides a bike regularly. You put a photo of President Biden next to a picture of Dotard, both wearing polo shirts so Donnie Dollhands can't wear his girdle, and POTUS looks fit as a fiddle with muscle tone, while Dotard resembles a mentally deficient Jaba The Hut. In a year and a half, President Biden has far more accomplishments than Putin's Punch Board had in four. In fact, Dotard lost jobs during his Presidency, while President Biden has record job creation. Brandon is kicking ---.

His numbers may currently be in the basement yet that's exactly where Dark Braden easily beat TheDonald ... From his basement. Totally destroyed Trumpy so badly Trumpy and his deplorables are still not believing it all while hardly ever leaving his basement ... apparently.

Then why are you so afraid of him?

It's not fear, it's anger. It's only directed a him because the Dark Money, Dark State has too many faces to name.

Visitor is just angry because his preferred dark state is apparently a wee bit dumber than the other guys' dark state.

Anyway, anyone supposedly against the "dark state" or "deep state" and who also supports Trump is a complete hypocrite, no-nothing, simian-brained loser.

The very much pro-gun, pro-military doofuses that are against the deep state don't realize that the system they support and feed their $$$$ into (the military industrial complex) is one of the primary reasons there is a such a formidable deep state in the first place.

#30 | Posted by NerfHerder at 2022-08-10 09:35 AM | Reply

For every one gun they buy the deep state acquires two- and for every two guns they buy, the deep state acquires 4. And every time they get on their preferred little social media outlet and call for "Civil War" the deep state is empowered further- it's a lovely thing to have any potential future adversaries publicly state their intentions and their locations and the make-up of their own little arsenals.

Or no face at all, making naming equally impossible.

Your enemies live underground, in caves. You'll never find them.

They steal your children at night, while you're sleeping. When you were a child, they stole you.

You won't be able to solve this problem until you kill someone you love, and eat them.
