Biden Team Doubles Down on His ‘Junkie’ Comment
In an appearance with the National Association of Black Journalists, Errol Barnett mentioned widespread concerns about Biden’s mental acuity and asked if Biden had undergone a mental exam. “recently said he was tested constantly
An anonymous campaign official later defended Biden: “It was a preposterous question deserving of a response that showed the absurdity of it all.” Actually, it showed that the ill-tempered Biden’s mental instability and deeply-ingrained racism are too serious to ignore.
O’Rourke Whines That TX Gov. is Opening Schools
Thursday on MSNBC’s The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell, former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke slammed Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for opening schools despite the state’s coronavirus positivity rate of 17%.
“My fellow Texans have lost their lives to this pandemic and who didn’t have to if the governor had shut down this state earlier and kept it shut down until we had a contract tracing and a testing regimen that we could aggressively follow to contain the spread of this virus until our positivity rate came down,” O’Rourke whined.
“[H]e’s going to open up the schools in Texas and in fact will not allow local school districts… to delay their reopening even when they have uncontrolled spread and deaths so bad that they’re piling up the bodies in refrigerated trucks…” O’Rourke added. “And there is still no plan whatsoever to get this under control and to save the lives of fellow Texans.”
Keeping children locked down and out of school will do more harm than good. It’s time for the Democrat agenda of media-driven COVID hysteria to end.
Reid: ‘There’s Something Wrong’ With Trump’s Mental State
Trump had said of Biden, “He’s going to do things that nobody ever, would ever think even possible because he is following the racial left agenda, take away your guns, destroy your Second Amendment, no religion, no anything. Hurt the Bible, hurt God. He’s against God. He’s against guns.” Fact check: true.
“There’s something wrong with that man,” Reid complained. “I keep hoping that he will become more attuned with reality, but he’s getting worse.” He went on to claim that Biden has been “a devout member of the Catholic faith” his whole life, and “it is wrong for anyone to attack Joe Biden with his life history because of his religion or lack thereof. Joe Biden is a man of integrity, and I’m sorry to say our president is just the opposite.”
Biden is a devout Catholic like Nancy Pelosi is a devout Catholic, which is to say, not devout at all.
Ethics Committee Orders Tlaib to Refund Campaign $10,800
The House Ethics Committee released a report Thursday directing Rep. Rashida Tlaib to reimburse her campaign $10,800 after determining she improperly received salary payments in 2018 while no longer a candidate.
“Based on its review, the committee determined that Rep. Tlaib did not comply with the letter of the relevant laws and regulations governing her receipt of salary payments from her Campaign. The committee did not find evidence, however, that Representative Tlaib intended to unjustly enrich herself, and recognizes that she made efforts to ensure her compliance with the applicable requirements,” the Ethics Committee wrote.
“In light of this, the Committee determined that no sanction was merited, provided Rep. Tlaib returns the funds that she improperly received to her Campaign in full within a year of the date of this Report.”
The FEC allows non-incumbent candidates to pay themselves a salary from their campaign. The salary is meant to help first-time candidates who aren’t independently wealthy afford running for office.
Clyburn: Trump is Helping Kanye West Take Biden Votes
Friday on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, House Majority Whip James Clyburn accused President Trump’s campaign of helping rap mogul Kanye West get on state ballots for the November election to siphon votes from presumed Democrat nominee Joe Biden.
Asked if getting the outspoken Trump fan West on the ballot in Colorado, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin is a Trump campaign effort to try to steal votes from Biden in battleground states, Clyburn replied, “I don’t think there’s any question about that. I think we all saw what was going on there in Wisconsin, where he was getting help getting on the ballot. But, you know, African-Americans, most especially, know what this campaign is all about. They’ve seen these kinds of tactics before…
“We ain’t going to be shamed in this election,” Clyburn concluded.
Yes, you are. Democrats are terrified of Kanye West because he would be a black independent running against the hapless Biden, who loses more black voters with every interview he flubs.
Dem Rep.: De Blasio ‘Worst Mayor’ in American History
“I think it’s important that we take a step back here and set the table,” Rose began. “This mayor is not only the worst mayor in the history of New York City, he’s the worst mayor in the history of this great country. They have not put out a plan for opening the schools. They’ve put out a prayer, an outline at best.”
He went on to lay out a plan for getting kids back to school, including regular coronavirus testing of teachers. “But nothing can replace leadership, and I don’t blame anyone, to include teachers, parents, families, for not having faith in this mayor right now,” Rose continued.
When your own party’s local leadership goes on Fox News to bash you as the worst mayor in American history, that’s not exactly a ringing endorsement. De Blasio has earned it. His handling of the coronavirus pandemic has been lethally incompetent.
