Biscuit of the Week!

Even I didn’t think it would take such a short time to get a two time winner, but last night’s crock of bullshit was too much to take. Congratulations Joe Biden, you are the first two-time winner of the Biscuit of the Week award!

We all know that President Dementia won’t do press conferences and sure as hell isn’t giving a State of the Union address because he can’t talk coherently without a teleprompter or note cards for more than a few minutes so last night you got his first address to the nation. Where at least, bless his heart, he was able to read off the prompter for about twenty minutes.

Of course all he managed to do was lie to the American people and multiple times at that. Even the liberal rag New York Times raised eyebrows at some of the statements. Let’s review:

Quote #1: “A year ago we were hit with a virus that was met with silence and spread unchecked, denials for days, weeks, then months.”

Joe might remember that it was actually one year ago today that the Trump administration had begun taking mitigation steps by enacting travel bans from high risk countries. Now President Biden at the time said this was “not the time for (Trump’s) xenophobic hysteria.” At almost this same time last year Nancy Pelosi was telling everyone to come on down to Chinatown and Andrew Cuomo was telling New Yorkers to get on the subway and enjoy the city. So who was it that was in denial of a problem then?

Quote #2: “As of now, total deaths in America, 527,726. That’s more deaths than in World War I, World War II, the Vietnam War and 9/11 combined.”

This of course is complete and utter bullshit. And that, of course, is if you believe that his Covid death count is accurate to begin with. Regardless, according to estimates from the Department of Veterans Affairs, a total of 392,393 died in combat in those three wars. Combined with the 2,977 people who died in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that’s a total of 395,370 people, which, last I checked, is less than 527,726. Not that I expect Democrats (and even less so Democrat speechwriters) to be able to do math.

Quote #3: “Two months ago this country didn’t have nearly enough vaccine supply to vaccinate all or anywhere near all of the American public. But soon we will.”

By the end of last year, the Trump administration had ordered at least 800 million vaccine doses that were expected for delivery by July 31, 2021, the Government Accountability Office reported. There are only 330 million people in the USA. Maybe he was referring to the millions of people he’s letting cross the border when he said “American public?”

Quote #4: “When I took office 50 days ago, only 8% of Americans after months, only 8% of those over the age of 65 had gotten their first vaccination.

While that may be correct, he has forgotten a few things – first, the vaccine had just been approved by the FDA in Mid December. Then it had to start being produced in mass quantity. Lastly, the CDC recommended that first it be given to people over 75, health care workers, nursing home residents and first responders. It doesn’t magically happen overnight, unlike waving a wand and adding 2 trillion to the deficit does. So it’s one of those great fake news moments where what he said was true but it’s completely misleading and tells us nothing.

Pretty much like his entire address last night.

  1. Watching Biden give his speech and laying in with his weird affectionate stare made my blood boil with disgust and nauseated at the same time.
