For years, Fox News and others on the right have suggested that liberals and progressives are antagonistic to anything religious or sacred, even going so far as to declare that there’s a “War on Christmas.”
Now, however, it seems Fox has decided that the Biden White House is “too pro-Christmas” and is overlooking Thanksgiving, according to Alex Henderson of AlterNet.
At 6 PM on Monday, November 21, Fox News announced its “all-American Christmas tree lighting.” But only four later, on far-right host Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show, “The Ingraham Angle,” the following words appeared on the screen: “Biden White House Jumps the Gun on Christmas.”
Twitter quickly reminded Fox of their enormous hypocrisy.
President Joe Biden was in rare form Monday during the annual White House ceremony to pardon two turkeys who would have otherwise been part of a Thanksgiving meal.
Mediaite reports that this year’s turkeys were named Chocolate and Chip.
After welcoming guests for the turkey pardon, Biden even managed to slip in a dig at Republicans who had been predicting a “red wave” in the midterm elections. Instead, the GOP narrowly won a majority in the House and is on the verge of being on the wrong end of a 51-seat Democratic Senate majority. That will be determined in a December 6 runoff between Sen. Raphael Warnock (D) and Herschel Walker (R).
“Before I gobble up too much time, the votes are in, they’ve been counted and verified, there’s no ballot stuffing, there’s no fowl play. The only red wave this season is gonna be if our German Shepherd, Commander, knocks over the cranberry sauce.”
After that was the formal pardoning of the two birds:
The two lucky turkeys will spend their lives at a bird sanctuary.
Geraldo Rivera just had the second worst idea of his life (the first being his failed 1986 opening of Al Capone’s vault, which contained nothing but some worthless debris), and once again he decided to share his idiocy with the world, only to be humiliated for the entire internet to see and mock.
Rivera wants President Joe Biden to give a presidential pardon to disgraced, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump for the “good of the nation.”
Ford pardoned Nixon for the good of the nation? Really? There have long been suggestions that Ford actually pardoned Nixon as part of a larger plan: Nixon agreed to hand the presidency to Ford in return for getting a pass on all of his many crimes while in office.
It should also be noted that when Ford ran for reelection in 1976, the nation decided he needed to be booted from the White House and elected Jimmy Carter.
Pardon Trump? To hell with that idea! The man has repeatedly avoided paying the price for a lifetime of criminal behavior and belongs behind bars until the day he passes from this world.
Sorry, Geraldo, but Twitter thinks you should go back to Capone’s vault, only this time be sure and stay there.
President Joe Biden laid one hell of a nasty burn on Pennsylvania Republican Senate candidate Mehmet Oz when he found out that the doctor had attended high school in the president’s home state of Delaware.
Speaking to a crowd at a campaign even for Oz’s Democratic opponent, John Fetterman in Philadelphia, Biden remarked:
That wasn’t all the president said about a U.S. Senate controlled by Republicans, Politico reports:
“If, in fact, we lose the Senate, say goodbye to lower medical costs. Gone,” Biden said shortly after saying Fetterman has “got to win.”
Additionally, Biden noted that Republicans want to cut all aid to Ukraine and let Russia continue its war against the Ukrainian people.
Recent polls from the Keystone State show Fetterman with a small lead over Oz, and many political observers believe the race will come down to turnout, which is always crucial for Democrats. The massive turnout in the 2020 election is one of the reasons Biden won the election and Democrats gained seats in the Senate.
Thinking he could trip up President Joe Biden with a loaded question, Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy tried on Wednesday to make Biden choose which item he felt was the “top domestic issue” as the midterm elections approach: Abortion or inflation.
But Biden, in full Dark Brandon mode, swatted down Doocy and gave him a lesson in governing, telling him:
For those who aren’t familiar with the “Dark Brandon” phenomenon, HuffPost explains:
“Dark Brandon” is the meme-worthy nickname that’s turned what was once an insult into shorthand for a feisty president willing to fight back.
This isn’t the first time Biden has put Doocy in his place. The two have sparred before, CNBC notes:
President Joe Biden called Fox News White House reporter Peter Doocy “a stupid son of a bitch” Monday on a live microphone, after Doocy asked Biden whether inflation was a political liability for him.
The verbal slip took place during a White House event on Biden administration efforts to combat inflation. After the president complained that all the press questions were about the military buildup around Ukraine, Doocy shouted: “Will you take questions about inflation? Do you think inflation is a political liability ahead of the midterms?”
Thinking his microphone was turned off, Biden responded sarcastically: “No, that’s a great asset. More inflation.”
He added, “What a stupid son of a bitch.”
It should be noted that the president later apologized for what he called Doocy.
Twitter users were delighted to see Dark Brandon make a comeback and remind Fox and its viewers that Democrats can indeed do two things at the same time, which is what governing is all about.
