They’re fekking desperate, at this point.
Maybe Psaki should start winging nerf balls at the most egregious offenders. Get outa here! And don’t come back until you have a question worth asking!
(The yammering class would *love* it. There’d be a mad scramble for possession, and the trophy projectiles would be proudly enshrined in the happy possessors’ home offices.)

Asked if Biden should be doing more to set an example and limit personal travel, when CDC discourages it during pandemic, instead of making weekend trips to Delaware:
“It's his home,” @PressSec Jen Psaki says. “I think most Americans would also see that as a unique circumstance.” https://t.co/JSa7oBgRIZ

in the old days if dems would've tried to pass a bill with a $2 trillion price tag, fox would've done 24/7 coverage about america becoming communist russia or something. now it's just mr potato head, "silencing seuss," and running back some old hillary stuff. https://t.co/poWrPt7BpB

It’s so nice to have a competent actual leader in the WH, rather than the train wreck that all but destroyed the concept of the US, let alone the actual country. A lying, racist, asshole, and that’s being nice.
Skating RIGHT PAST what amazing number this comment might be, I instead focus on calling Thread Killah, once again.
And wish you all a good night! Asleep before midnight? Maybe things are getting better…
Can’t help but wonder what Ms Psaki might have in the works for April 1st.
@something fabulous: Works for me. Nighty-night!
That is an interesting idea.
The dumbass in the WH Press Corps that asked that stupid question is apparently one Nikki Schwab, of the UK paper The Daily Mail.
If you’re not familiar with that rag, here’s their online presence.
@joel hanes: If you’re referring to the first video asking if Biden is donating his salary, I’m going to say something very “look-ist”: she needs someone to speak to her about her hair, because that dye job is very unattractive. It looks almost greasy, the way it hangs, and the black roots suggest she needs a better shampoo.
“He will not be donating his salary to the government, nor will he spend every other weekend trekking to one of his golf courses, as he does not own any. He’s been a public servant for almost 50 years.”
This day in 1929, J.B. Lenoir:
A Virginia political story: Governor Ralph Northam endorses Delegate Jay Jones for the Democratic nomination for Attorney General. Jones, 31years old, is grandson to a Norfolk civel rights leader, and his father held the 89th District seat before him. Northam and Jones’ father are friends, it is said, and Northam may be paying forward the support he received in his 2017 primary versus Tom Perriello. In a preview of the 2020 South Carolina presidential primary result, Northam did well among African American Democratic voters, who did not warm to his Sanders endorsed opponent. Northam won by a surprisingly wide margin.
Dick Herring has been a good AG since 2014. I might fault him for not being more pro-active concerning the disastrous 2017 Charlottesville rally, but every public servant with responsibility was caught flatfooted on that one, including Governor Terry McAuliffe.
The formerly irrepressible Ragnarok Lobster has been silent since March 3. Hope nothing bad happened.
@Geminid: Mark Herring has been a great AG and deserves reelection.
Someone speculated at BlueVirginia.US that Northam is knifing him for saying that he should resign for the yearbook picture (as just about every elected Democrat in the state did). Given how long and how well they have worked together for Virginia, Northam looks petty in doing this now.
It’ll be interesting to see if Northam does similar endorsements for Lt Gov and Gov, but I don’t think it will hurt Herring much.
hells littlest angel
Biden will be lining his pockets with the salary he earns, rather than with money his predecessor chiseled, cheated and gouged out of the taxpayers.
@Another Scott: I must have gotten the AG confused with his brother. He has been a fine AG. As well as Blue Virginia, others speculate that this is Northam’s revenge for Herrings call for Northam’s resignation. Herring has been a fine AG, and I think this campaign will be fought more on issues of generational change than policy questions. The desire for a racially diverse ticket also may be a factor for some Democrats. I suspect it will be a close race, but not a divisive one.
@Geminid: A desire for a regionally balanced ticket may also influence some Virginia Democrats, since it looks like a Tidewater Governor will be replaced by a Northern Virginian. This factor used to have some weight back when powerbrokers had more influence over the ticket, but maybe not so much now. And cultural and social differences between Virginia’s regions seem to be smoothing out.
@Geminid: It’s Mark Herring, or are you being a jokster? Herring has been such a remarkable Attorney General. His work to combat the horrors of the former guy helped me get through the terror.
I am in awe of Ms. Psaki and her ability to be professional, calm, civil, and spot on when dealing with some of the idiots in the mudia (the u is intentional). She has a deft hand with the stiletto and does not suffer fools gladly. Thank the FSM.
@planetjanet: Not a jokester, at least not in this instance. That Other Scott cat also pointed out my error. I think the AG has a brother named Richard who is a Northern Virginia Congressman. But I’m probably wrong about that, too.
I like the AG also. Jones is an attractive candidate and he may give Herring a tough race. Jones might just want to get his name out there, though, to set up a State Senate race, or a run for Bobby Scott’s VA 3rd seat when Congressman Scott retires. Whoever is on the Democratic ticket this year, I think things will go well. The Virginia Republican party is floundering.
Re Biden’s trips home to Delaware, did the reporter ask Trump’s spokesliar the same question about his trips to Florida?

Looks “unclean” in every possible way. I try to clean up a little bit when I go to the stores every couple of weeks… she doesn’t clean up to go to the White House?
And I’m a retired dirty hippy software geek…
