Biden’s Approval Soars as Jane Fonda Discovered Stranded in Afghanistan

 

President Joe Biden’s sagging approval rating has made an unprecedented recovery as news emerges that actress, activist, and communist Jane Fonda is among those who’ve been left behind in the aftermath of the botched U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Fonda, who had transitioned seamlessly from Viet Cong propaganda puppet in the 1970s to cash in on the American aerobics craze of the 1980s, was in the process of reinventing herself yet again by assisting Afghan women in procuring burkhas in those regions of the country where austere religious attire had become rare owing to the occupying infidel forces.

Biden’s approval rating, which had been hovering in the low 40s before news emerged of Fonda’s plight, subsequently skyrocketed to the mid-80s according to the latest polls from Reuters. The president’s approval increased dramatically among people of all political stripes including Republicans and Democrats, independents, men and women, all ethnic groups, those for and against U.S. involvement in Afghanistan as well as every living former U.S. President with the exception of George W. Bush, who expressed concern for Fonda and lauded her contributions to world peace.

    Do they have a picture of Hanoi Jane with an AA gun shooting at American airplanes?

    Once again the usually mute former President only finds his voice to say stupid things.

     Jane Fonda’s age has skyrocketed to the mid 80s, too.

    (It somehow doesn’t seem as old as it used to.)

    Joke circa November 1979:

    Bad news and good news. The bad news is Jane Fonda is going to Iran to negotiate the release of our diplomats being held hostage. The good news is Teddy Kennedy is driving her.

    We have some Vietnam vets on Mr. C’s side of the family. I think it’s safe to say the only person they hate more than Joe Biden right now is Jane Fonda. 

    Thanks for the laugh.

    Ten years ago I was at Nellis Air Force Base for work. Had to visit the restroom in the club and there were Jane Fonda stickers in the urinals. It will be a while before that memory fades, if ever.
