Coming prepared to a meeting is a good thing. Notes are not unusual. Just over sixty days in office and he doesn't know all the press corps names is just shameful Smile

Trump used to say "who are you?". "Who are you with?" Oh, you're fake news!!!

Just for fun, one of the Trumpster's notes!


How rare. A President who brings notes to answer questions he doesn't know the answer to instead of pulling some "alternative fact" out of his ass & pretending it is the truth, then adding the phrase "nobody knew" in front of his answer leading to the red flag that the "nobody" was Trump and the answer was wrong.

And I have to ask. Since right wing media is based on opinion & not facts do the right wing media hacks actually qualify as reporters?

It's hard to escape the claims of the right wing on Fox and here are largely based on Biden's speech. To be sure, Biden has had to overcome stuttering--something that is very difficult--and speaks very carefully as part of his approach. Those righties on the forum who have taken that as evidence of his cognitive decline also frequently make fun of other disabilities, or make comments about boys pretending to be LGBTQ to use girl's bathrooms or compete with girls in sports. Not exactly a persuasive set of arguments. Nor one that shows much in the way of kindness.

Boggsy, What would you have done if a mob of baton wielding thugs had stopped your vehicle by throwing paint on it, further damaged the vehicle, surrounded you with weapons and threatening behavior, and sprayed you with pepper spray?

Not sure. I probably would avoided the scene all together, not really my thing to get in harms way.

It that I agree with either side. But, driving into a mob scene with a loaded firearm seems like a silly idea.

My daughter lives just outside of Portland. The Portland area is a hot bed of white supremacist activity. Trying, as they have made clear on their web sites, to precipitate a race war. But you won't hear buggy whip ever take exception to the violent activities of the far right.

The hard core anarchists on the left are nearly as bad. Eager for a dust up. A pox on both of their houses. But there is one significant difference. The GOP has turned their party over to the far right--and pretends that their violence is not really so bad.

i guess Virginia DDT fan boy is proud of this:

Quote:
By Kimberly Kindy
MARCH 29, 2021

ROCKY MOUNT, Va. — A photograph of two local police officers popped up on Bridgette Craighead’s cellphone after a long day at her beauty shop. The two men peering out at her from the selfie image had befriended her while on duty at a Black Lives Matter protest she led months before. They stood beside her and held her homemade signs that read “Silence is Violence” and “No Justice. No Peace.”

Now, there they were, proudly posing inside the nation’s Capitol during the Jan. 6 insurrection — amid a mob of people, many bearing symbols of white supremacy as they sought to overturn the presidential election to keep Donald Trump in power.


What happened next is inflaming a culture war in this southwest Virginia town of 5,000 people, a microcosm of the schisms across America as explosive disagreements over the election, race and the role of police are fracturing relationships between relatives, friends and neighbors.

People are quarreling over who was treated with kid gloves — Black Lives Matter protesters or the largely White throng that stormed the U.S. Capitol. They are arguing over the fairness of the presidential election and whether the former president should still be in office. And there’s a simmering standoff between activists such as Craighead who see this as the moment to redress injustices, and those who believe the activists are fomenting racial tensions by pushing too hard and too fast. Some see no need for change, no problem to be solved.

Minutes after receiving the photo of the officers in a private Facebook message three days after the riot, Craighead, who is Black and the mother of a young son, made it public on her own page.

“I can’t believe someone I trusted was a part of that animalistic behavior at the CAPITOL!!” wrote Craighead, who is 30.

Jeff Bailey, who is White and has an auto-detailing shop kitty-corner from Craighead’s beauty shop, reposted the photo the next day with his own message, directed at the two officers.

Boggs--how long do you think it takes before you get a sneering response from Virginia?
