More headlines from the Los Angeles Times, Axios and the Daily Beast displayed related sentiments, predicting there can be “no honeymoon” for Biden with the mounting strain from the Left.

Politico wrote, “President Joe Biden’s honeymoon with progressives is over,” on June 23, arguing liberal lawmakers and grassroots progressive teams wished to see Biden be extra “aggressive” on points like voting laws, police reform, and eliminating the filibuster.
“Noticing a theme?” Maddow requested. “That was the Beltway line. Like the unanimous Beltway line when Joe Biden got elected. Sure progressives helped Biden beat Trump, but no honeymoon. And for the next four years progressives are going to be Biden’s worst nightmare. They’ll be the thorn in Biden’s side.”
