Original Article

Just days after his commanding primary victories in Florida, Arizona and Illinois, the coronavirus has turned former Vice President Joe Biden into a virtual prisoner of his Delaware home, where he’s reduced to sniping at President Trump from the family rec room.“He’s making himself irrelevant,” Saikat Chakrabarti, a former chief of staff to Queens Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, told The Post, saying the virtual broadcasts were not helping. “We need action immediately, and Biden can’t do anything real right now.”Biden has been forced to watch from the sidelines

Same thing happened to Johnnie McQueeg during the 2008 campaign - - because of the "financial crisis." Biden appears irrelevant because - - like McQueeg - - he is completely useless.

They are making a big deal out of nothing, of *course* he's irrelevant in this matter, he has zero power, he is just a candidate for the job! I listen to him as much as I would Hillary! or Zero...and with the same result.

Well then Chakrabarti, I have to point out that I have thus far heard less from your pal Dem Socialist Sanders. Is he or isn't he in favor of Socialist quarantine camps for Chinese and New Yorkers ? Anybody who has a fever gets locked down on Bourbon Street for 2 weeks.

When this virus pandemic first hit, the Demon-Rats thought their every prayer to Satan had been answered. Dead people + ruined economy -- it was going to destroy President Trump's chances are re-election. Hey, it was worth sacrificing a few thousand people as long as they got power. The ends always justify the means to Demon-Rats. Instead, President Trump is looking like a true leader!!! And Biden is looking like a total and complete doofus!!! I would love to see President Trump win 45 states in November!!!!!

The dems are actually quite lucky that the virus popped up. The more we see of Uncle Joe, the clearer it is that he is suffering from a severe mental deficit. They have tried to get him before the public in a very favorable venue and he even messed that up. Pushing him in front of the public in his condition is cruel.

"We [Dems, I guess] need action immediately," Chakrabarti (AOC's boy) says. What kind of action? Agitation? Criticism? More pork barrel legislation? I don't think they are in a position to generate much action, unless they completely go around the President. What a bunch of miscreants.

Joeker is going to be the political sacrifice to the God of Keeping America Safe. He is way out of his league when it comes to large scale management skills. He would be lost in deep space if he had to deal with the things Trump is dealing with. He would be a string puppet for Pelosi and Schumer and the other power players in the dem party. He is a poser and an emoji for the left. Goe with Joe y’all!!!

In the demonrats rush to get rid of Bernie, they settled for the dementia pervert criminal. They should live with it and stop complaining. What's their counter punch on Biden? Make him drop out so the Butcher or Cuomo (their latest favorite for never letting a crisis go to waste) can sweep in? Is it already happening? Did the DNC convince that worthless governor Cuomo to start his own personal briefings and so they could get their sycophants' in the drive-by propaganda media to hype it?

How can you tell whether or not the liberal media will pick up an incident of gun violence and turn it into a national story? It’s simple: If the shooting is successful, they will give it wall-to-wall coverage for a week. If it is stopped by an armed citizen, however, the liberal media will almost always pretend it never happened or glance over the story with only brief mention or coverage.This oversight is perhaps a bit more understandable at the moment, given the national coronavirus crisis consuming the country and dominating media coverage. But it’s still absolutely worth highlighting the heroic story of a Florida man who on Friday

Poll of the week: A new ABC News/Washington Post poll finds that President Donald Trump's approval rating among all adults in 48%, while his disapproval rating is 46%. Trump scores a very similar 49% approval rating and 47% disapproval rating with registered voters. What's the point: There's no doubt now that Trump is experiencing a bump in his popularity following his response to the coronavirus pandemic. The ABC News/Washington Post poll is quite similar to the Monmouth University poll that came out earlier this week, for instance. But what is interesting to me is that Trump's jump is coming disproportionality from non-voters. Normally Trump does considerably better among voters than among adults.

John wrote about the mayor’s response to criticism and pointed out that at the time Mardi Gras kicked off, most cancellations of big events across the country had not begun. We didn’t know what we didn’t know, and that includes elected officials in charge of cities across America. I’m not going to beat up on Mayor Cantrell.
