Joe Biden and Bill Nye, the Science Guy
A few days ago I see Joe Biden and Bill Nye (the science guy?) promoting Joe’s Build Back Better Bill on TV. The contrast of Joe Biden, The Clueless, standing next to Bill Nye, The Science Guy, caught my attention. So, I hit the rewind button on the remote and watched the whole thing. Yuck.
Yes, it’s cheesy. Yes, it’s strange to the point of being oddly silly. Yes, it deserves all the slams and critical humor our dysfunctional mainstream media can muster. But then, I had a BDBE (Bus Driver Brain Eruption).
As an adult, when I think of science guys, names like Einstein, Tesla, Hawking, Asimov, and Greene come to mind. I do not think Bill Nye. If I were a boy of say five or six, yeah—Bill Nye, The Science Guy might be front and center “cuz he’s the coolest,” like Joe’s BBBB.
I concede that it’s hard to watch but … check it out anyway. Why? I’ll tell you after you watch the video. It’s actually somewhat deviant and devious all at the same time.
Is Joe really there or is he PhotoShopped?
Who are they selling this cool Build Back Better Bill to? Most adults don’t think of Bill Nye as a real Science Guy. I doubt that most scientists and college professors do either. I think by the time you get to middle school, Bill Nye is only a science guy to your little brother or sister.
Is the Biden Administration so desperate for a sympathetic ear that it has to target five-year-olds? Isn’t brainwashing the kind of thing child molesters do (the deviant part)? By doing it in front of the whole world using social media (the devious part), doesn’t that border on the absurd?
If Joe had any real self-awareness …. Well, he should be embarrassed. Sadly for us, he’s probably proud.
