Congress Fox News Joe Biden U.S. Senate WTF?!

Bartiromo Attacks GOP Senator For Failing To Stop Biden Infrastructure Deal: ‘Democrats Are Winning!’

Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo had an on-air meltdown Sunday during an interview with Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), whom she accused of not doing enough to block passage of President Joe Biden’s $1.1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill, which was approved by the Senate this week with an overwhelming 69-31 vote. 19 of those 69 votes came from GOP senators.

Blackburn said the administration is weak, telling Bartiromo:

“This administration is weak on every front. Whether it is the out-of-control spending or whether it is misplaced priorities, this is a weak president. It is an administration that is not focused. They are not prioritizing what the American people want to see.”

That’s when the Fox host lit into Blackburn:

“You’re right! The list does go on,” Bartiromo said. “But, Senator, with all due respect, if they’re so weak, why are they beating you? OK? The bottom line is the Democrats are winning. And we are about to see a major Green New Deal thanks to your colleagues. Mitch McConnell the other day praised President Biden for doing bipartisan work!

“What’s going on with the Republicans?. You’ve gotten nothing out of this, except to say, yeah, we worked with our colleagues on the left. But they don’t say that — we’ve worked with our colleagues on the right. They don’t care if you’re there or not!

“So if they are so weak, why are they beating you and your colleagues?”

The senator weakly responded:

“We’re pushing back on this. The good thing is the American people are beginning to push back with us.”

Actually, the American people, in poll after poll, overwhelmingly said they supported the infrastructure bill. And GOP senators supported it because it has something for every state in the country, with billions for constructing roads and bridges, and expanding broadband internet access. The legislation is a win-win no matter how you look at it.

Democrats are winning because their ideas and plans are popular with the voters.

Republicans, on the other hand, have nothing but whining, complaints, and obstruction to offer, and that’s why they’re winding up on the short end of the stick.

Don Jr. And Lauren Boebert Own Themselves By Spreading BS About Meat Rationing By Joe Biden

There’s an old saying attributed to Benjamin Franklin that goes, “Believe none of what you hear and believe half of what you see.”

Sadly, however, not everyone practices that helpful axiom, especially those who are intent on repeating lies and conspiracy theories such as the majority of right-wing political figures in the United States these days.

If you need proof that some people are too damn lazy to even do a simple Google search before they post something on social media, consider the case of Donald Trump Jr. (aka Traitor Tot) and Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), who is in the running with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

Junior and Ms. Boebert ran across a report from Fox News that claimed President Joe Biden’s plan to combat climate change would include encouraging Americans to reduce their meat consumption by 90% within the next 10 years.

Problem is, as fact-check websites pointed out, that’s simply not true:

“At no point in this speech did Biden announce any initiative to impose a limit on red meat consumption. At no point in his presidency has Biden suggested policies aimed at limiting red meat consumption.”

Yet despite that, Boebert and Don Jr. started tweeting and getting others to retweet the lie:

Lies. All of it. No one is cutting anything. As many people pointed out, stupidity is a terrible thing:

The next time you think you’ve encountered the dumbest person on the face of the planet, remember that Junior and Klanny Oakley are too stupid and lazy to spend 10 seconds doing some research on the internet.

White House Lays Epic Burn On Ted Cruz As President Biden Prepares To Visit Texas

On Friday, President Joe Biden will visit the state of Texas to see firsthand the damage wrought by Winter Storm Uri, which left millions of Texans without power and water for nearly a full week and killed 80 people.

It’s a tradition for a president to invite senators from the state he’s about to visit to fly on Air Force One with the POTUS, but the White House just made it clear that neither Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) or John Cornyn (R-TX) will be afforded that honor, the Daily Mail reports:

“White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that because Dr. Jill Biden is joining her husband on the trip and because of social distancing requirements of COVID, neither Cruz nor fellow Texas Senator John Cornyn would be on the trip.

“‘Dr. Biden is traveling, of course, with us to Texas,’ Psaki said at her press briefing Thursdsay. ‘There are some limitations on space available.'”

So not only did the administration manage to completely humiliate Cruz and Cornyn, they used COVID as a reason for why they wouldn’t be invited. That’s absolutely brilliant!

Of course, this is just the latest humiliation for Sen. Cruz, who tried to sneak off to Cancun with his family and then had to return to Texas when he was photographed hopping a jet out of the U.S. and abandoning his constituents at their time of need.

When he came back, Cruz hemmed and hawed, saying he was just escorting his two daughters to Mexico and never had any intention on staying with them, telling reporters:

“And all of us have made decisions – when you’ve got two girls who have been cold for two days, and haven’t had heat or power, and they are saying: ‘Look, we don’t have school, why don’t we go, let’s get out of here.'”

Whatever, Ted. But no Air Force One for you!
