Morning Greatness: Biden Emerges From Basement in Scripted Presser

Good Tuesday morning.

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

  • The president arrives at property affected by recent riots in Kenosha, WI
  • President Trump surveys property affected by recent riots
  • The president tours the Emergency Operations Center
  • President Trump participates in a roundtable on Wisconsin Community Safety

Five minutes of hate:

Basement Biden finally addressed the violence, rioting and murder across America as his poll numbers are dropping. FUN FLASHBACK: Remember when Jerry Nadler said there was no such thing as Antifa? Biden warned the country: the violence won’t stop with another Trump presidential term. “Does anyone believe there will be less violence in America if Donald Trump is reelected?” Is that a threat Joe? Biden also said of Trump that he is “an incumbent president who makes things worse, not better. An incumbent president who sows chaos rather than providing order.” How so? What has Trump done that makes these barbarians set fires, loot and beat people? The left always removes the agency from its protected actors, as if each and every one of the hooligans destroying Americans communities has not made a choice to act. If Trump can make people riot, can he make people not riot?

President Trump is heading to Wisconsin today, despite lefty Governor Evers asking him not to visit. “I am concerned your presence will only hinder our healing,” Evers wrote. “I am concerned your presence will only delay our work to overcome division and move forward together.” The Democrats are worried a visit will “fan the flames.”  Here we see the same maneuver: Trump’s visit will cause the ensuing violence and mayhem rather than the deliberate actions of malefactors choosing to start trouble. There’s no reason thugs need to hit the street and bust up their community unless they chose to do so. It’s not on Trump.

The president will not meet with the family of Jacob Blake during his visit. Blake is the knife-wielding man who was shot after resisting arrest for violating a restraining order. Blake was restrained from visiting his victim because he had broke into her house and raped her with his fingers as her child slept next to her. (Enjoy your hero!) The Blake family wanted lawyers at a possible meeting with the president. Suspicious request.

Our cultural bullhorns have the vapors because President Trump will not denounce Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old who defended himself against violent thugs hunting him down while he tried to stop their arson and destruction. Trump said at a press conference Rittenhouse was “trying to get away from them, I guess, it looks like” and that protesters “violently attacked him.” The purpose of denouncing the 17-year-old is to dissuade people from defending their life and their property against roving bandits like Antifa and Black Lives Matter. The left doesn’t want anyone resisting the hostile takeover. I think the president knows that and didn’t take the bait. Has anyone asked Biden and every single Democrat politician if they will denounce Antifa and Black Lives matters thugs?
