Joe Biden Claims ‘600,000 Dead’ from Coronavirus, Accuses Trump of Not Having ‘Intercourse’ with World

Joe Biden’s mental blunders during a Friday MSNBC appearance were overshadowed by his denial of Tara Reade’s sexual assault claims, but they continue to underscore his apparent cognitive decline. Biden twice told Morning Joe that 600,000 Americans have died from the coronavirus. “Over 600,000 dead, many of them who are those workers, those nurses, doctors, some of them,” he said. A hot mic picked up a gasp from one of the hosts, but he continued, “Because they have put themselves in the position to save other people’s lives, protect the rest of society.” “And we talk about that number like 600-plus thousand people,” he said, before host Joe Scarborough interjected, “Sixty.” “Sixty thousand,” Scarborough said. “Six— sixty thousand,” Biden responded. “I misp— 60,000.” According to reported statistics, the actual number as of Friday is 65,068 deaths. For a second time, he awkwardly used the word “intercourse,” when he seemingly wanted to say “discourse” or “interaction.” “The pandemic is that the president has no intercourse whatsoever with the rest of the count— uh, the world,” he said. Earlier this week, he said halted global travel will stifle “economic intercourse.” In the very same thought, he seemed to forget the name of the Ebola virus. “We led— Barack Obama led on the corona, I mean, excuse me, in the pandemic that occurred when we were in office. It was kept in Africa,” Biden said. Ebola was never classified as a “pandemic.” The World Health Organization referred to it as a “situation.”

Joe Biden talking extemporaneously really is the gift that keeps on giving.  There is ZERO doubt that he is going through “cognitive decline,” which is pc for becoming more senile.  Even his supporters in the dominantly liberal mainstream media , like Joe Scarborough here, are trying to bail him out by politely/subtly correcting him.  We hope Joe Biden continues to do more interviews and talk without teleprompters.       🙂

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough ripped for falsely claiming ‘no doctors’ were at White House presser, urges networks to cut away

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough was slammed on social media for falsely claiming that “no doctors” were present at Monday’s White House press briefing on the coronavirus outbreak. Scarborough was among many media personalities on Twitter who quickly noticed that Dr. Anthony Fauci, a prominent figure in the White House’s coronavirus task force, was missing from the briefing. The liberal TV personality quickly concluded that the briefing wasn’t necessary. “There is no public benefit to this briefing. The networks should all cut away,” Scarborough tweeted. “Bland pronouncements, the repeating of catch phrases daily, bad medical advice. No science, no doctors, no Fauci. Just Trump’s Roy Cohn.” While he suggested the presence of Attorney General William Barr by referring to him as “Trump’s Roy Cohn,” the “Morning Joe” co-host apparently overlooked Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House response coordinator who also spoke at the presser. Others fact-checked the MSNBC host on social media. “Dr Birx is right next to him,” National Republican Senatorial Committee senior adviser Matt Whitlock told Scarborough. “Are you dumb or just a liar?” The Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra reacted. “Dr. Deborah Birx spoke and the press conference is not over.” “Dr. Deborah Brix [sic] — the response coordinator for the White House Coronavirus Task Force — is standing directly behind him and has spoken multiple times. What even is this tweet?” Washington Examiner reporter Jerry Dunleavy asked. Scarborough never issued a correction, but latter slammed the presser, “There is nothing in this briefing that cannot be summed up in three minutes at the end of the press conference. Nothing.” Author Stephen King made a similar error earlier this month after claiming that Trump’s coronavirus team was “all male, all old, and all white.” However, in addition to Birx, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Administrator Seema Verma, Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson are also prominent members of Trump’s response team.

In response to The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra..  I’d say, “both.”  “Morning Joe” Scarborough is both dumb AND a liar.  Further, he doesn’t have the professionalism or humility to say, “my apologies.  I was wrong.”  President Trump’s Wuhan virus task-force has SEVERAL doctors and professionals, other than Dr. Fauci.  So, if/when he isn’t present, there are several others on the task-force, including Dr. Deborah Brix, a retired full Army Colonel with decades of experience (and, oh, btw..a female).  I watched the 2 hr press briefing yesterday and Dr. Brix spoke SEVERAL times and answered numerous questions from several reporters.  As for the silly, and entirely irrelevant racial/ethnic pot-shot by author Stephen King (who, btw is also an old white guy)..  Both the Surgeon General, Dr. Jerome Adams, and HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson (a nationally renowned neurosurgeon) are both black men.  And then there is Seema Verma who is not white; probably of Indian heritage.  But, we’re not 100% certain.  Either way, she’s a female and not white..not that it matters in the least.  It’s just that these liberals have nothing.  So, they go back to their old playbook which tells them that all Republicans are old white men, and therefore Trump must only have old white men on his team.  Of course it’s not true.  But, the facts don’t matter to these idiots.  We feel it’s important to note that it is entirely what the racial or gender makeup of any of these task-forces, or adviser are.  We want the President to be surrounded by the BEST people regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, religious affiliation..and so on.  If you had cancer or some other terminal disease, you’d want the BEST doctor you could get, right?  Of course.  Well, we should want our President to be surrounded by the BEST possible advisers giving him the BEST possible advice, regardless of those entirely irrelevant demographic considerations.  Again, the dominantly liberal mainstream media continues to make irrelevant, weak, pot shots at Trump because..well…he’s Trump.  And, honestly…they just don’t like the fact that he’s on tv and they can’t stop that.  He’s out there talking right to the American people unfiltered, and taking over an hour each day to answer questions from the media…and it’s driving Joe, and the liberal media nuts that they’re unable to censor or stop him from connecting with the American public.  Isn’t that great?     🙂

Chris Matthews absent from MSNBC’s primary coverage after sexism allegations, on-air slip-ups

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was noticebaly absent from the network’s South Carolina primary coverage Saturday evening, one day after being accused of “sexist” behavior by a former network contributor — and then later misidentifying a politician while on the air. Earlier in the week, Matthews had issued an on-air apology after drawing backlash for comparing the Nevada caucus victory of Sen. Bernie Sanders to the 1940 invasion of France by the Nazis. In an op-ed for GQ on Friday, journalist Laura Bassett claimed Matthews had used sexist language when she would visit the MSNBC studio to appear on his show as a guest. She recalled Matthews looking at her in an adjacent makeup chair before an appearance in 2016 and asking: ‘Why haven’t I fallen in love with you yet?'” Bassett said she laughed nervously but Matthews kept making comments to the makeup artist. “Keep putting makeup on her, I’ll fall in love with her,” Matthews allegedly said. She said he made another comment about her makeup during a separate appearance. “Make sure you wipe this off her face after the show,” she wrote he said to the makeup artist. “We don’t make her up so some guy at a bar can look at her like this.” Bassett said she decided to write the op-ed because of a “sexist” interview Matthews did with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., after the last debate in which he pressed her about her accusation that former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg has once told a woman at his company to “kill” her unborn baby. Bloomberg denies he said it. A feminist group has called for Matthews’ firing over the interview. Bassett said she wrote a similar op-ed in 2017 without naming Matthews because she was afraid to publicly accuse him at the time, but wrote many women reached out to her saying they knew who she was talking about. She said while she didn’t think Matthews’ behavior rose to the level of criminal sexual harassment, it undermined her ability to do her job. In 2017, it was reported that NBC paid $40,000 to a producer on Matthews’ show who claimed he sexually harassed her. MSNBC has not confirmed the amount paid to the woman, nor has the network said whether the payment was made to settle a harassment claim. An MSNBC spokesperson said at the time that executives were told that Matthews made inappropriate jokes and comments about the woman in front of others, that the matter was reviewed and it was determined the comments were inappropriate and made in poor taste but were never meant as propositions. Then during his “Hardball” broadcast Friday, Matthews mistook Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., for Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Jaime Harrison, chalking it up as a case of “mistaken identity.” Harrison was appearing on “Hardball” to discuss his campaign to unseat Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., but the interview went off the rails when Matthews ran a clip of Scott standing beside Graham at that evening’s Trump rally in North Charleston and assumed it was Harrison. Both Scott and Harrison are African-American. “Jaime, I see you standing next to the guy you’re going to beat right there, maybe,” he said. “Maybe? Maybe, maybe? Lindsey Graham?” Soon Matthews realized his error and apologized to Harrison. “What am I saying? Big mistake. Mistaken identity, sir. Sorry,” Matthews said. Harrison appeared to roll his eyes and looked shocked, but kept a smile on his face and answered Matthews’ question. Matthews also took fire for a comment he made about Sanders’ decisive victory in Nevada last weekend, comparing the candidate to the Nazis’ defeat of France during World War II. “I’m reading last night about the fall of France in the summer of 1940,” Matthews said during the network’s Nevada coverage. “And the general calls up Churchill and says, ‘It’s over,’ and Churchill says, ‘How can it be? You got the greatest army in Europe. How can it be over?’ He said, ‘It’s over.’” But many viewers were outraged by the comments — and Matthews apologized Monday. “Senator Sanders, I’m sorry for comparing anything from that tragic era in which so many suffered, especially the Jewish people, to an electorate result in which you were the well-deserved winner,” Matthews said. “This is going to be a hard-fought, heated campaign of ideas. In the days and weeks and months ahead, I will strive to do a better job myself of elevating the political discussion. Congratulations, by the way, to you, Senator Sanders, and to your supporters on a tremendous win down in Nevada.”

Chris Matthews is a disgusting, sexist, pandering, extreme liberal, blowhard who has no filter and doesn’t know when to just shut the hell up.  Put aside the fact that the man is SO wrong on oh so many things with respect to politics and policies.  He’s an obnoxious tool whose voice just grates on one’s nerves.  Listening to him talk is like nails on a chalkboard.  It’s frankly surprising he’s had a run on MSNBC as long as he has.  The left could do SO much better…and that’s not even mentioning how his show’s ratings have been tanking steadily.  But, after all of this, it’s time for even failing MSNBC to show him the door, and find someone else who isn’t…well..as offensively obnoxious as Chris.

Gutfeld on the media and Democratic response to Iran

As the post-game analysis of “Operation Desert Burp” continues, we realize that for President Trump’s critics, peace means defeat. If you listen to the media right now, it’s like we killed Lady Diana or Elvis. “When Princess Diana died, for example, there was a huge emotional outpouring,” Chris Matthews said on MSNBC. “Elvis Presley, in our culture, he added. “It turns out this general he killed was a beloved hero of the Iranian people to the point — look at the people … look at the crowds coming out. There’s no American emotion in this case, but there’s a hell of a lot of emotion on the other side.” I’m almost impressed by his stupidity. Chris, you’ve been around. Iran can form a crowd over a sneeze. And they’ll shout “Death to America” over anything, including when HBO canceled “Sex and the City.” And that idea that killing bad guys makes them martyrs? We better not kill any more bad guys. By that logic, we should’ve stayed out of World War II, and left Usama bin Laden and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi alone. But, in the media’s world, Trump is Hitler, and a terrorist is Martin Luther King Jr. “What you’re describing feels like the kind of unified national outpouring that is reserved for a small handful of figures in any country, I mean, a beloved president, a civil rights leader like Martin Luther King in the United States,” New York Times podcast host Michael Barbaro said. What an ass. But Trump once again has driven critics to defend the indefensible. Remember when they bashed Trump for being mean to MS-13? Now he’s got the “The View” applauding white racists! The show’s audience applauded news that a white supremacist tweeted his opposition to Trump. As the idiots squawk, Trump rolls on, handing out great ideas like gift baskets. We don’t deserve him. Meanwhile, former Mayor Pete Buttigieg tweets that maybe we should share the blame for that downed plane — even though Iran did the shooting. And he’s running for president. So Trump once again foils his critics, not just by being right, but by letting them be so wrong. “They made a serious mistake … by taking this terrorist action against Commander Soleimani,” Masoumeh Ebtekar told CNN. Does she sound familiar to you? Maybe that’s because, when ABC News asked her many years ago whether she could envision killing Iran’s American hostages, she responded, “Yes. When I’ve seen an American gun being lifted up and killing my brothers and sisters in the streets, of course.” I’m thinking, CNN: maybe don’t get an opinion on America from someone who threatened to kill American hostages. But I guess the network has to find one person outside their own newsroom who’s mad Gen. Qassem Soleimani is dead. That’s hard, because that one person — Soleimani — is dead.

No kidding!!  Thanks to Greg Gutfeld for calling it as he sees it.  That was adapted from Greg’s monologue on “The Five” on Jan. 9, 2020.  If you wanna see the video of Greg’s monologue, and see Chris Matthews (over at MSNBC) saying those breathtakingly stupid comments, click on the text above.

Fox News beats CNN, MSNBC combined in ratings, tops all of cable

Fox News Channel attracted more prime-time viewers than CNN and MSNBC combined last week, adding to its streak as the most-watched basic cable network. Fox News averaged 2.3 million viewers during the hours of 8-11 p.m. ET from June 10-16, while MSNBC finished second with an average of 1.5 million. HGTV, A&E and USA joined them among the top five, while CNN averaged just 744,000 to finish 14th. Discovery, TNT, Food Network, TLC, Investigation Discovery, TBS, Hallmark and the History Channel also finished with more prime-time viewers than the struggling CNN. FNC also took the crown among total day viewers, averaging 1.2 million, while no other basic cable networks cracked the million-viewer mark. MSNBC came in second, averaging 850,000; CNN attracted 519,000 total day viewers. Fox News has now finished first in the total day category for 23 straight weeks. Fox News averaged 315,000 prime-time viewers among the key demographic of adults ages 25-54, compared to 192,000 for MSNBC and 173,000 for CNN. While MSNBC topped liberal rival CNN, the home of Rachel Maddow still finished with its lowest-rated week of 2019 in both total day and prime-time viewership in the key demo. In addition, “Fox & Friends” beat liberal morning shows “Morning Joe” and “New Day” combined in the demo. “Hannity” had the most-watched telecast in all of cable on June 10 with an average of 3.2 million viewers. “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” “The Ingraham Angle,” “The Five” and “Special Report with Bret Baier” were among the 19 Fox News programs that finished among the Top 25 telecasts for the week. Fox News’ town hall event with 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Julian Castro averaged 1.1 million viewers at 6:30 p.m. ET, while CNN’s Castro town hall averaged just 654,000 viewers when it aired in prime time back on April 11.

And honestly..  Who still watches CNN?  lol   All data is courtesy of Nielsen Media Research

Opinion/Analysis: Rachel Maddow’s 17 Most Audacious and Paranoid Russia Hoax Lies

This list of Rachel Maddow’s most audacious, reckless, and dangerous lies surrounding the Russia Collusion Hoax was compiled by the Nation’s Aaron Maté. This is his work, his effort, and well worth your time if you want to understand just how recklessly Maddow deliberately misled her audience for two years and why her ratings have now collapsed by double digits. Because MSNBC is an openly left-wing news out, basically leftist talk radio with pictures, I don’t spend much energy critiquing it. If you are open about your biases and personal beliefs, go with God, let’s have a debate. The toxic poison in our media ecosystem comes from outlets like CNN, the Washington Post, NBC News, and the New York Times… Outlets that pose as objective when they are actually to the left of MSNBC. This Maddow thing, though, is something altogether different. Bias is fine — lying, deceiving, misleading, fear-mongering with fake news, and abusing your perch on a major cable news network is not okay. I’m a big fan of openly partisan news outlets, but who in their right mind would continue to watch or listen to someone who lied with such shameless abandon? Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity are not the top guys on radio (and in Hannity’s case, the top guy on cable news) because they tell us what we want to hear. We trust them. They do not lie to us. And if they get something wrong (which is not very often), it is always a mistake made in good faith and it is always corrected. But as you will see below, Maddow did not just spend the last two years spreading serial lies and paranoia, she is now lying about her lying. For instance, even though we have the video to prove otherwise, a couple of weeks ago Maddow tried to gaslight her audience into believing she “refused to let myself think about” the compromising video tapes (that don’t exist) we were told Putin had of President Trump. Maté backs up each item on his list with devastating video … and I do mean devastating. Rachel Maddow makes Sen. Joe McCarthy and Father Coughlin sound like Plato. Click here to continue…

Wow..  If you watch MSNBC, and especially Rachel Maddow, you really need to click on the above and watch these videos..  Rachel is total garbage.  No wonder her ratings are dropping by double digits.  People, even the most rabid anti-Trump liberals suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome, are slowly realizing their trust in her reporting has been misplaced.

Opinion: Gutfeld on MSNBC saying Trump is guilty of workplace violence

According to the hair-on-fire media out there chasing ambulances down Pennsylvania Avenue, there’s been a report of workplace violence in a large white residence. Commenting on President Trump firing officials at the Homeland Security Department, a guest on MSNBC said: “What we talked about was a possible analogy between what we’re seeing in the president and studies of violence and acting out, particularly workplace violence…. The question we have to ask ourselves, from a behavioral sense, is are we watching a president essentially on his way to what we call a flash point, and are we beginning to see him act out in the form of purging and mass firing and completely not listening to any logic? “Are we essentially watching a workplace violence incident play out at the highest level of our government, and is he acting out now, and where does this go if I’m right about that?” That might be the most insane thing ever said on MSNBC – and they employ Chris Matthews. You wonder why America thinks the media is less trustworthy than lawn darts? It’s because the media seriously entertain ideas like that. Firing someone is now workplace violence. Maybe it feels like that for nonskilled people in the media, who know they can’t be employed anywhere else, except maybe a carnival dunk tank. They never get fired, they only fail up the primetime lineup. Until they get jobs running CNN. Yet these are the same clowns who lied that President Trump called immigrants “animals,” when he was talking about the MS-13 criminal gang. How predictable: these goofs were more offended over calling killer thugs “animals” than by the acts by the gangs themselves. But that’s the media’s way of operating. Everything is a crisis, except the actual crisis. We’ve all had a friend who – when the booze ran out at a party – would drink from abandoned cups and polish off the Listerine. That’s the media. With the collusion keg empty, they’re now desperately looking for anything to numb the pain. So we’re back to President Trump’s personality. He’s mean! Unstable! When he doesn’t like a situation, he changes it! Did you hear? He fires people! I once worked for somebody like that. In fact, she fired me. But that’s what bosses do in the real world. The real world. The media should check it out sometime. It’s really the only show in town and they can’t stand it, because they wouldn’t last a minute.

Agreed..  You really can’t make this stuff up, folks.  I saw the video clips of these morons on MSNBC actually saying this.  Unreal..  The above was adapted from Greg Gutfeld’s monologue on “The Five” on April 9, 2019.
