If it’s Monday and there’s a White House press briefing, you can count on Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy trying to twist President Joe Biden’s words and getting slapped down by press secretary Jen Psaki.
Today’s dustup took place when Doocy asked about a report that seven school districts in Virginia are suing Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R) for his ban on mask madates:
But that response wasn’t enough for Doocy, who then asked:
Clearly trying to criticize Biden’s policies on education and health, Doocy added:
Donald Trump Jr. is facing legal jeopardy in several jurisdictions, and reports are that his father is ready to offer him another family members up as the scapegoats for any crimes that may have taken place at the Trump Organization, so it’s safe to say that Junior is under more than a little stress these days.
That being said, you have to wonder: Why would someone who needs to lay low and consult his attorneys be posting videos online that appear to show him high as a kite and virtually unable to speak?
Whatever the motivation, take a look at this 29-second train wreck:
Is he high on drugs? Sure seems that way, though only he knows for sure. At times, it’s almost impossible to decipher what the ex-president’s son is even saying, though there is this line:
Yeah, things were so much better when we had a president who was beholden to Vladimir Putin and deferred to the Russian autocrat no matter the issue.
Junior’s bizarre video set off a wave of online mockery:
Appearing on the Fox News program “Sunday Morning Futures” former GOP Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich suggested that members of the January 6 House Select Committee could face the “risk of jail” if Republicans retake control of the House of Representatives in the midterm elections.
Gingrich told host Maria Bartiromo:
The serial adulterer from Georgia then added:
The laws they’re breaking? What about the crimes of insurrection and interfering with Congress that were committed by failed, one-term former President Donald Trump and his toadies in Congress? They’re still facing serious federal criminal charges that could send them to prison for decades.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), one of only two Republicans who have agreed to serve on the Jan. 6 panel, clapped back at Gingrich’s blatant threats, tweeting out this response:
She was soon joined by her fellow Republican on the committee, Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois:
No one is afraid of you or your GOP goons, Newt. And keep in mind you haven’t won the House or Senate yet. As the committee continues to uncover new evidence and crimes, don’t be surprised if voters reject you and your fellow insurrectionists.
The House Select Committee investigating the January 6 Capitol insurrection has had “conversations” with former Attorney General William Barr, who was failed, one-term former President Donald Trump’s handpicked choice to run the Justice Department.
Barr resigned in December of 2020 as Trump continued to push his “Big Lie” about the presidential election being stolen from him. The ex-president and his supporters have yet to provide any credible evidence that there were irregularities in how the vote was conducted or counted.
Earlier this week, we learned that an executive order had been drafted for Trump which would have ordered the Secretary of Defense to have the National Guard seize voting machines across the United States:
The order, which was never signed by Trump, would also have appointed a special counsel “to institute all criminal and civil proceedings as appropriate based on the evidence collected,” and calls on the defense secretary to release an assessment 60 days after the action started, which would have been well after Trump was set to leave office on Jan. 20, 2021.
Thompson confirmed that report, telling CBS News host Margaret Brennan on Sunday:
Even though he’s no longer in Congress, former California Republican congressman Devin Nunes is still slinging conspiracy theories for the braindead morons who watch and believe Fox News as right-wing gospel.
Nunes, who is now CEO of the Trump Media and Tech Group (whatever the hell that is), was a guest on Maria Bartiromo’s “Sunday Morning Futures” show, and went on an extended (and fact-free) rant about Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, telling the host that Russia’s possible invasion of Ukraine is linked to the Biden family:
Nunes added that Russian President Vladimir Putin thinks the United States is weak with Biden as president, even though we were never weaker in regard to Russian than when failed, one-term former President Donald Trump was Putin’s personal lap dog and puppet:
That led Bartiromo to wonder out loud if Biden has “conflicts of interest” that are tying his hands on the matter of Ukraine. To that, Nunes replied:
“This is major evidence that sat on that laptop. The FBI had it for over a year and nothing was done with it. So in a normal world, unlike the one that we live in now with this dystopian media that we have and social media, you would have hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of media folks, reporters, investigative reporters doing work on this.
“Sadly, you’ve only had a few. The American people deserve the right to know, what is it that the Russians, the Chinese or the Ukrainians have on politicians in this country. That information is known to the FBI, but yet, the American people still don’t have a clue.”
What does Russia have on Trump and Nunes? Can we get to the bottom of that, too, Devin? You voted against impeaching Donald for his blatant attempt to extort the Ukrainians to dig up nonexistent dirt on the Bidens, but now you want a full investigation?
Sit your sorry ass down and shut the hell up, traitor. Let’s take a look at your finances and see who owns you.
