On a Morning Joe interview that aired on Tuesday morning, Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden responded to questions about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's handling of the ultra-liberal group of freshmen lawmakers known as "the squad." Biden said he believed that Pelosi was "masterful" in her work, but further heaped high praise on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, saying, "I think the freshmen, particularly AOC, is smart as hell."Biden's response on Tuesday comes the morning after Ocasio-Cortez, along with three other female freshman lawmakers condemned the weekend tweets by President Trump in which he said if the congresswomen were unhappy with the United States they should, "go back

He's right. When it comes to knowing how to manipulate the media, she's smart. Otherwise, she's a pluperfect dunce.

Possibly the Vice-President is les than fully aware such proclamations are subject to intense counter-factual review from alternative media. Once upon a time saying an untruth to counter what seemed obvious would be enough to cast doubt, but so many available facts counter the notion that Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez is— in a conventional, high-cerebral-functioning way— “smart as hell,” that possibly the Vice-President isn’t fully conscious of them. The Congresswoman might be favored by the media, and possessed of adequate animal cunning to exploit that, but that doesn’t require a great deal of mastery of fact or analysis. That mastery is conventionally, “smart.” If Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez were a Republican male representative making similarly fact-challenged claims about any liberal initiative, no conservative would come to their aid. Democrats like the Vice-President are so accustomed to such subterfuges they can’t help themselves.

Lord have mercy. Biden's blunt force stupidity is enough to make one marvel in horror. Managing to be wrong about just about everything over a lifelong political career, Plugs is likely to be be a literal imbecile. And yes, Taco Barbie's IQ of about 80 is enough to make SloJo's IQ of 48 inadequate by comparison. We're talking about brazen, industrial strength stupidity all through the Democrats. With them up is down and wrong is right. American politicians with two digit IQs are properly impressed by other dumb clucks. A simple mind is easily amused.

No leftist who espouses gender theory can provide a coherent answer to this question. Few will even attempt it. It is a classic double-edged sword.

His tweet will not live in infamy, but his cringe-worthy “go back” language rhymes with many of his earlier self-inflicted mistakes.

So it was Sunday, with Democrats engulfed in a vicious civil war and Trump’s poll numbers rising against the 2020 candidates as the public begins to realize how far left they are goin
