Morning Greatness: China Virus Assistance Held Hostage by Democrats’ Progressive, Bloated Wishlist

Good Tuesday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president participates in a Fox News Virtual Town Hall from the White House

Democrats shoehorn progressive garbage into bailout bill

After working together on another phase of a bailout for American businesses forcibly shuttered, the Democrats decided to trash their previous bi-partisan work and offer an obscene alternative littered with unrelated, liberal fantasy legislation. The new House bill considered by the Senate would:

eliminate debt held by the U.S. Postal Service, require same-day voter registration, pay off $10,000 in student debt per person, mandate that airlines reduce their overall carbon emissions by 50 percent by 2050, and force federal agencies to explain to Congress how they are increasing their usage of “minority banks.”

And, the legislation would provide for the automatic extension of nonimmigrant visas and restrict colleges from providing information about citizenship status. It would also allocate $35 million to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

LOLGF. Seriously. It’s ridiculous. Now the Senate is “working on” some sort of agreement but let me state right here and right now, there best not be any of this trash in whatever gets passed. The Senate and Trump should hold tight and Trump should come out and say he’s not signing anything that includes issues unrelated to the China Flu that the Democrats’ are shoving into it.

The Democrats are trying to shift the blame and are claiming they object to the GOP shortcomings but everything was fine and agreed upon until Rand got the WuFlu and had to quarantine and Senators Lee and Romney also went into quarantine which took way the GOPs vote majority in the Senate.

The Senate fight over the bill got nasty yesterday on the Senate floor which is unusual as the Senate isn’t as partisan as the House. Supposedly, the Senate will continue working on a deal but they must not be allowed to “restructure things to fit” the Democrats’ vision.

Also important:

Corporate media cuts away from CHINA VIRUS briefing: CNN and MSNBC cut away from the task force briefing because…well you figure it out. Trump and Pence were there but so were were experts and task force members. Don’t they want to hear from those folks, after all, we keep hearing how important the experts are. I bet the task force briefings are boosting Trump’s approval numbers.

Never forget who the opposition is: Nancy Pelosi’s daughter tweeted out yesterday “Rand Paul’s neighbor was right,” referring to Paul’s deranged lefty neighbor who assaulted him and broke some of his ribs resulting in permanent damage.

Sleepy Joe Biden makes an appearance: He should lay low, what a disaster! Biden did a live stream that lasted a mere 15 minutes even though he is supposed to be doing some kind of shadow briefing to Trump’s daily taskforce presser. There was some kind of teleprompter malfunction during the Biden performance.

“And, in addition to that, in addition to that we have to make sure that we, we are in a position that we are, well met me go the second thing, I’ve spoken enough on that,” Biden said before going on to speak about the aggressive action he would like Trump to take under the Defense Production Act.

Confidence inspiring!
