In light of the 4th of July weekend, President Biden (D) stated that "I want to talk about happy things, man," when faced with a question about Afghanistan and the war we have been fighting for nearly 20 years.  However, the optimism which has been heavily criticized by the Right only deepens the contrast between Biden and President Trump (R).

This morning, Fox and Friends hosted veteran and Congressman Brian Mast (R-FL) who chose to respond to Biden's comments by noticing the rivalrous difference between the two.  Mast said in response to Biden's comment that it was a "very stark difference from President Trump, willing to give us his opinion on anything."

Biden preferred to discuss his successful jobs report and the 4th of July celebration, but "anything unscripted he's unwilling to react to unlike President Trump," said Mast.  The "back-handed brush off, of talking about the last 20 years, it's personal for me and so many others."

In fact, the holiday weekend seemed to be all about the two presidents with "Trump's America," trending on Twitter.  After President Trump once hosted a fireworks display over Mount Rushmore during his time in office, rising star Conservative, Gov. Kristi Noem (R-SD) has sued the Biden Admin for canceling the 4th of July fireworks display at the monument.

The Administration claimed they would "circle back," to it according to the New York Post, but no answer was given.  Earlier this month, the National Park Service denied a request by the Mount Rushmore State to reprise last year’s fireworks show, which followed a speech by then-President Donald Trump and marked the first pyrotechnics there since 2009.
