Editor’s Note: While the media and other leftist elites ignore the millions of folks living in “flyover” states, they do so at their own peril; it was this silent majority that put President Trump in the White House. Each week, Liberty Nation gives voice to the hard-working heartlanders who are silent no more.
It’s obvious to those in flyover states why hailing from the back forty is preferable: wide open spaces and clean fresh air, where good manners and common sense are paramount virtues. The red robins are hop, hop, hopping along, a new crop of wildlife is out and about entertaining folks, and buds and blossoms are scenting the air with the most fragrant of nature’s perfume.
The only putrid scents seem to be those emanating from the traps of political non-essentials sheltering in place and lobbing stones at the president of the United States. Namely House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the basement-dwelling former vice president who came out, saw his shadow, didn’t recognize said shadow and retreated once again – for God knows how long. It didn’t take a hair’s breadth for heartlanders to pounce on the Democrats.
No Malarkey You Whippersnappers!
As Biden buffoonery goes, a trifecta was achieved in under ten minutes, during an interview this past Tuesday with Yahoo News – an appropriately named media outlet in this case. In some sort of order only Mr. Biden understands, he forgot the name of the virus ravaging the world, what century he was living in, and made a whopper of an error in understanding the 2009 stimulus package, of which he lays claim to being the man in charge when it came to doling out the payola.
“Thousands of meatpacker— workers got sick, got cona— uh, uh, got the virus and some died.”
“The idea that you go through the 20th Century without— with just 12 years of education, er, the 21st Century.”
“I had the job of getting out $84 billion in 18 months in the Recovery Act.”
Well, Joe, you missed the mark by a small margin of $720 billion – it was $800 billion, but who’s counting? He finished his stellar performance then headed to the winner’s circle for one last bit of genius and chastised President Trump for using the prescribed drug Hydroxychloroquine: “Taking Hydroxychloroquine is like injecting Clorox into your blood.”
Speaking of Hydroxychloroquine
The tightly-wound – pun intended – Nancy Pelosi publicly announced that she is worried that the leader of the free world, President Donald J. Trump, was taking Hydroxychloroquine as a “just in case” precaution against the bug. Pelosi went on CNN and delivered what she must have assumed was a real zinger to that young upstart Mr. Trump as she wisely claimed “morbidly obese” people should not take the drug.
Morbidly obese. Trump. He’s no Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, but morbidly obese is a bit of a stretch. Madam was certainly competing with her contemporary, the, er, sena … guy from Delaware when she came up with that line. It was Biden-worthy and had folks reeling. But then a new hero emerged and laid the Speaker flat. Tucker Carlson opened his Fox News program by chiding people who name call and then flatly stated, “People with glass faces should not throw stones.”
The applause was deafening. And Tucker’s ratings surely exploded.
“That’s funny and accurate! It made me laugh out loud,” Sandi Astley of Indianapolis said with a chuckle. “If the plastic surgeon makes her face any tighter, her eyebrows will touch her hairline! She is looking constantly shocked & awed.”
One guy in Nevada, Terry Osborn, thought she may have been on the television reality show Botched, but then decided “Dr’s said there’s nothing they could do with skin that tight. And can you imagine what she says behind Jerry Nadler’s back.” And our friend from Arizona, Markell Barrett, offered, “She is a taco short of a combination plate,” though he concluded she may well be pickled.
Flyover folks weren’t fooled by the left’s shenanigans. They instead demanded the Democrats take a look-see at who their leading man is and told Madam Speaker she’d best gaze into the looking glass before lobbing any off-the-cuff bon mots at the president. Or, as Ella Lindsey Purvis writes, “She needs to worry about her skin on her face – it is morbidly stretched to the brink.” Like the silent majority’s patience.
