Videos posted to Joe Biden’s White House YouTube account are getting flooded with ‘dislike’ interactions from the American public – some even dwarfing the number of likes on a video by over six times. Below the numbers from January 23, 2021
The data is the latest evidence at odds with President Biden receiving the most votes in any presidential election in U.S. History.
At the time of publishing, of the seven videos uploaded to the account – which now has comments turned off – all have more dislikes than likes. In most cases, the like to dislike disparity is striking.
The video “President Biden Reviews the Readiness of Military Troops in a Pass In Review” has 18,000 dislikes – nearly six times the mere 3,200 likes the video garnered.
The White House account, which has over 1.8 million subscribers, saw its video of Biden’s inauguration earn just 11,000 likes and 52,000 dislikes.
In contrast, President Trump’s latest address – live-streamed on the Right Side Broadcasting Network account – has over 145,000 likes and just 4,500 dislikes. Those were the numbers before they started removing dislikes as you can see on the screenshot below. Must have been a very boring job to remove 14,000 likes and 1,000 dislikes.
For Team Biden the situation is so dire that YouTube has even begun removing dislikes from the account.
Biden’s “The Work Begins” video has 4,400 likes and 21,000 dislikes;
The “President Biden and Vice President Harris Participate in a Wreath Laying Ceremony” video has 3,100 likes and 20,000 dislikes;
The “President Biden Signs Executive Orders and Other Presidential Actions” video has 6,200 likes and 32,000 dislikes;
The video “President Biden Swears In Day One Presidential Appointees in a Virtual Ceremony” has 6,100 likes and 26,000 dislikes.
What’s more, the first press briefing has over four times as many likes as dislikes.
The divide is especially startling given it is occurring on YouTube – a video platform which is hardly the home of right-wingers given its routine banning and censoring of conservative content.
