A New York Times Conversation Between Gail Collins and Bret Stephens Headlined “It’s Not Easy Being President”

From a New York Times conversation between Gail Collins and Bret Stephens headlined “It’s Not Easy Being President”:

Bret Stephens: Hi, Gail. Joe Biden’s presidency is in deep political trouble. His approval ratings are plumbing sub-Trumpian depths. If inflation keeps rising and the economy tanks, it’s going to get worse.

The president needs to hear some tough love. Your thoughts.

Gail Collins: Gee, Bret, wouldn’t you rather begin with the Jan. 6 hearings? Or the N.B.A. finals? Or even the weather.
