President Joe Biden had his first press convention—and it’ll most likely be his final for fairly some time. If it wasn’t scripted, it will have been an unmitigated catastrophe. it was dangerous, however trainwreck territory was averted on condition that his employees orchestrated it to the max. He rambled concerning the border and immigration. He prevaricated on gun management opting as an alternative to speak about infrastructure. After which, there was the filibuster which took up the lion’s share of the presser. It was right here that Biden suffered essentially the most pronounced senior second to this point.

Reagan wrote concerning the filibuster shenanigans which was already a nightmare. The person is shedding it. The brand new line for Democrats is that the filibuster is a relic of the Jim Crow period which is a traditionally illiterate level. Obama made that time. So, why not do away with it? Biden had a protracted pause on that one, however not earlier than we discovered 2005 clips of Biden and Obama defending the filibuster, so retroactively they’re supporters of Jim Crow and racism. Hey, that’s their guidelines. You simply hate to see it.
CNN’s @kaitlancollins: “President Barack Obama stated he believed the filibuster was a relic of the Jim Crow period. Do you agree?
President Biden: “Sure.”
Collins: “If not, why not abolish it if it is a relic of the Jim Crow period?”

The filibuster is not a Jim Crow relic..it was created lengthy earlier than JC and was used far more up to now twenty years than it was within the 50s or 60s. Politicians lie and deform however why is media going together with it?

Are we simply going to let this slide? We received’t, however the Democrat-media advanced will although they need to know yesterday’s presser was tough. To their credit score, I’ll say a few questions have been good. One centered on whether or not his administration rescinded Trump’s border enforcement protocols too quickly. The opposite associated to transparency as Biden is stopping the media from visiting the facilities which can be full of unlawful alien youngsters. There’s a cause. It’s dangerous inside. it’s a humanitarian disaster. It’s one which the liberal media thought Trump was answerable for however wasn’t. It’s right here—and the Democrats are doing all they will to cover it since there’s one other narrative brewing proper now which is in a mere two months, this administration has suffered serial failures. We’ve got a border disaster, the financial system continues to be shaky, faculties are nonetheless closed, our international coverage workforce acquired rolled by China in a key Alaska assembly, and the president doesn’t know what’s happening. There’s extra to the memo to federal businesses that referred to as on them to discuss with the present White Home because the Biden-Harris administration. Apart from nurturing a woke narrative since Harris is the primary black girl to function VP, this might be a harbinger of issues to return. Is that this a co-presidency? With senile moments like what we noticed yesterday, keep watch over Joe. He nonetheless thinks he’s within the Senate in any case.
