Morning Greatness: Biden Says Christmas Supply Chain Shortages Like Beanie Babies, Cabbage Patch Kids

Good Thursday morning.

Here is what’s on 46 agenda today:

  • 10am: The President receives the President’s Daily Brief
  • 1:15pm: The President visits the National Institutes of Health
  • 1:40pm: The President delivers remarks on his Administration’s plan to continue the fight against COVID-19 as we enter the winter months and face the Omicron variant
  • 5:30pm: The First Family and The Second Family attend the National Christmas Tree Lighting; The President and the Secretary of the Interior deliver remarks

Two minutes of hate:

On Wednesday, President Biden told the American people that the empty shelves in the grocery and department stores and out stock online items are just like in the 80s and 90s when parents couldn’t find Cabbage Patch Kids and Beanie Babies for their children. “Some of you moms and dads may remember Cabbage Patch Kids back in the ’80s or Beanie Babies in the ’90s or other toys that have run out at Christmastime in past years when there w​ere no supply chain problems,” said Biden.

Not exactly, Joe. It’s not just potential Christmas presents that are unavailable it’s computer chips, home improvement items, appliances, certain foods, cars, and much more.

“Supply chain problems of this magnitude have not happened in recent memory,” said Craig Johnson, president of the Customer Growth Partners consulting and research firm.

When stores don’t have items to sell, especially seasonal items like heaters or winter coats, they lose that profit. Consumers don’t need winter coats or heaters in the spring or whenever the multitude of ships can offload their cargo in California. The lost profit leads to lost jobs and closed businesses. It’s not about dolls and stuffed animals.

Moving on, the Biden Administration will announce on Thursday an extension of the mask mandate on airplanes, trains and buses and at airports and train stations through mid-March. The Transportation Security Agency (TSA) had extended the mask mandate back in August to January 18. The new extension comes following the discovery of the omicron virus variant. We don’t know much about the variant yet, we don’t know if it’s more dangerous or more contagious but the media has been freaking out and the government is always willing to demonstrate more control and take more power when provided with an opportunity.

I don’t know what is going on in the viper’s nest of VP Kamala’s office but another high ranking flak is jumping ship. Harris’ chief spokesperson, Symone Sanders is leaving at the end of the year, which is only a few weeks away. Just two weeks ago, Harris Communications Director Ashley Etienne resigned.

“Symone has served honorably for 3 years,” a White House official told Fox News. “First as a valuable member of the President‘s 2020 presidential campaign, then as a member of his transition team and now deputy assistant to the President and senior advisor/chief spokesperson to the Vice President.”

Many people believe Biden will not run for reelection in 2024 and many people think he won’t even make through his first term. If so Kamala is next in line for the job so why would people be leaving her office and give up a chance to ascend up the swampy DC ladder in the oval? It makes no sense. Something strange is afoot.

Finally, flaming leftist and notorious anti-gun dummy Alec Baldwin told Clinton spokesperson George Stephanopoulos that he did not pull the trigger on the gun that killed Halyna Hutchins and injured director Joel Souza on the set of his latest movie “Rust.” Alec, that’s not how guns work, the gun only goes bang-bang when someone pulls the trigger. How did the bullets come out of the gun?

“I would never point a gun at anyone and pull a trigger at them. Never,” he tells the ABC anchor and acknowledges he has “no idea” how a live bullet got on the set.

“Someone put a live bullet in a gun, a bullet that wasn’t even supposed to be on the property,” he adds.

One reason, other than stupidity, for this insane remark could be that Baldwin is facing multiple lawsuits over the incident. One suit alleges Baldwin fired a gun when it wasn’t even called for in the script.

Why there was a real gun on the set of this movie or any movie? Not only are Hollywood types gun morons who know nothing about guns or safety, it would be just as easy to make a prop replica. They hate guns.
