Newsmax guest attacks Biden's dogs for being dirty and "unlike a presidential dog"


For a bunch of people who call liberals "snowflakes", they sure get their feelings hurt over the silliest things.

There are soooo many possibilities in Trump world.

They were making fun of Champ, who is like 12-13 yrs old which is ancient for a German Shepard, poor old good boy. But their inner racist sneaks thru when they refer to him as "brown" and "dirty".

OK, so what is this? From the little that is here, I'm guessing Trump said something on a podcast about Wie's VPLs? What exactly happened here and what did Trump or whomever say and what is the timeframe we're talkin?

Apparently it was Rudy the shirt tucker. "Giuliani recounted his highly inappropriate story while appearing on Steve Bannon's podcast. In it, Giuliani talked about golfing with Rush Limbaugh"

Yahoo News

Edit, DMR beat me to it. Apparently a charity event where you pay to golf with a pro. Rudy, Rush and other old pervs golfing with Wie and getting excited about seeing her underwear as she putted.

I saw it now. Instead of letting that story go unmentioned, he didn't even say it matter-of-factlike. He had to creepily say, "......pantiezzz..." He always takes it to next level.

Joe Biden is visiting Bob Dole right now, per the White House pool. Dole was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer last week.


Biden is a genuinely nice man.

Trump’s Grand Return to the Spotlight Makes a… Ripple

Quote:
Donald Trump ascended to the presidency thanks, in no small part, to his ability to relentlessly dominate headlines and consume news cycles. His opinions on matters of foreign policy, the birthplace of presidents, and the cosmetic surgeries of cable news hosts were deemed urgently newsworthy by the national press for half a decade.

You may not have noticed it, but that return to the spotlight came on Wednesday. And then it went.

All told, he was on air for more than an hour. And the man who could not be escaped on A1 for the last five years didn’t draw a single headline from the front page of the The New York Times, The Washington Post, The New York Post, The New York Daily News or The Wall Street Journal.

His interview with Hannity, on prime time Fox News, drew decent ratings, but not exceptional ones.


Let's hope it stays this way.

The social media bans and not being president have diminished his widespread media appeal.

It couldn't have happened to a more deserving troglodyte.

Of course, his crowd will be the largest you've ever seen. They'll be unmasked, adding to the 500,000 deaths attributed to COVID-19.

This is a great example (among many) when one of your conservative friends tries to tell you about corrupt bureaucrats and how the efficiencies of the market solve everything.

AOC!!

That’s the post. Mad respect to this young lady. Shown more leadership and human care than 99% of politicians. At a young age, she has more class and respect for people than establishment cats. Raising $4M, going down to a state that has been super hostile, and helping is more more than Texas’ own elected officials. Shout out to the Castro twins too!

Do you know why we can fly a helicopter on Mars but can't turn on a light in Texas?

Because scientists are in charge of Mars.

and Republicans are in charge of #Texas.

Looked like Biden teared up at the candle lighting ceremony. His speech was very powerful. I teared up when he talked about the grieving process (paraphrased)

"The day will come when the memory of a loved one will bring a smile to your lips before a tear to your eye. it will come I promise you. My prayer for you though is that will come sooner rather than later and that's when you know you're gonna be okay, you're gonna be okay."

With Biden at the helm, America will return to normal sooner than later. I have high hopes.
