It is so nice to hear a normal press briefing.

Jen Psaki answers questions normally and is good at her job.

It looks like one of Trump's last minute intelligence appointments did not get finished in time...

So his last name isn't cauthom?

I'm not going to dunk on that because he's in a wheelchair and may have some neurological condition that I don't know about.


he still goes hunting despite being in a wheelchair. maybe this isn't a fair assumption, but i feel like if he has the dexterity to aim a gun and pull the trigger, then he has the dexterity to sign his name in a manner so that it doesn't look like a fourth grader practicing their signature on the inside of a trapper keeper.

also he dropped out of something called patrick henry college while carrying a D-average, so i'm assuming that he's a horsefeathering moron.

That it is even noticed is an indication of how low the bar has been set after the last four years.

Yeah, making fun of a disabled person for their ability to perform a physical task is gross, even if the target is a literal nazi congressman who the world would be better off if he caught on fire and died this exact moment.

I’m really looking forward to the pace of posts in this thread dropping to near-zero, though I’ve certainly enjoyed the last few months with you all.

Said the same thing to my wife, press briefing with the topics primarily centered around policy? WTF?

Guess, to no one's surprise, previous administration failed to leave any strategy or plans for vaccine distribution, Biden' starting from scratch. Given this, he'll, of course, be criticized for not getting distribution up and running in a swift manner.
