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.
To start a conversation with flyover folks on the day’s whacky events under the political big top, prepare in earnest for a plethora of practical advice, biting commentary, and a few “God Bless” here and there thrown in to keep the baby Jesus happy. This week in the heartland, social media was abuzz with the latest observations on former Vice President Joe Biden. Not that he was reassuring his supporters he wasn’t “going nuts.” And not because he was sniffing too close for comfort. Nope, creepy Uncle Joe made the news for being well, even more creepy than usual.
On Wednesday during CNN’s seven-hour butt-numbing townhall on climate change, Biden spoke eloquently about his unachievable goals on saving Mother Earth while one of his eyes filled with blood. A zombie apocalypse was predicted, as “one-eyed” Joe appeared to not notice the gruesome site unfolding. After the event, he tweeted, “We can’t turn a blind eye to the way in which environmental burdens are distributed unevenly along racial and socioeconomic lines.”
When James Sullivan from Eau Claire, WI, saw the former VP’s tweet, his marketing prowess overran his desire for being polite as he advocated for a new CNN townhall event called “Eyemate” change.
And the crowds went wild. Many queried if he did indeed meet president Trump behind the gym. Others claimed his real reptilian was breaking through the façade of human, and still many more – tongue in cheek – surmised that Satan was trying to get out before the man keeled over.
Even the tough guy from Sterling, AK, Jeff Webster, pondered, “He wasn’t creepy enough as he was?”
Nothing to See Here
The Biden team was quick to claim it was simply a burst blood vessel and folks chimed in claiming it was minor and not newsworthy. But the question of the man’s health – the guy who is leading the pack of Democrats vying for the number one job in the USA – brought out a new kind of life coach not seen in the coastal elite states.
Virginia Andre from Clarkrange, TN, appealed to Biden’s supportive wife, Jill, who not long ago advised voters to vote for her husband even if he wasn’t well-liked. Andre pleaded: “Mrs. Biden, you’re going to find yourself burying your husband soon if you don’t end this nonsense right now. I don’t particularly care for him , but he’s going to stroke out and die, he’s not mentally capable of continuing and I wouldn’t wish death on him…”
Steve Burns from Oaklawn, IL, agreed, “Dude is falling apart mentally and physically but he’s the ‘best they have’ on the Democrat side. Thank God I’m a Republican!”
Remember When the Dems Claimed Reagan Was Too Old?
Joe Biden is the eldest of all candidates running for president. At 76, if he wins the Democratic Party nod, and, big if, he wins in 2020, he will be older going into the presidency than Reagan was when he left after his second term. And Biden has had health issues before, suffering a brain aneurysm while serving in the Senate. His neurosurgeon, Dr. Neal Kassell, assures the electorate that the man is perfectly healthy, “Joe Biden of all of the politicians in Washington is the only one that I’m certain has a brain, because I have seen it.”
Heartlanders aren’t convinced. As Arizonan Kevin Lesser observed, “And this was at a padded, protected, biased CNN town hall. He’ll have a stroke and drop dead on the stage if he makes it to the debate with Trump.”
The #MeToo comments were also prevalent with many wondering if he groped a tad too many times while at CNN. Dana Freudeman from Dublin, OH, stated what most were already thinking, “He probably got poked in the eye by a chick who he snuck up on to get a whiff of her hair.”
Biden running for the highest office in the land is an almost inexhaustible news source if one is into the weird and wonderful world of Democrat hypocrisy. Their lead candidate is a handsy fellow who won’t apologize – instead, jokes with his male friends about his behavior. He is an old, privileged white man. He is a friend and ally to former segregationists who voted the wrong way on Civil Rights legislation. Apology? What apology? He hasn’t even garnered the support of the man who he served with in the West Wing for eight long years. Of course, it does appear he can’t remember former President Barack Obama’s name these days so there’s that. The optics are almost as bad as Sen. Bernie Sanders being punched by a speed bag, for crying out loud. Perhaps the time has come for Joe Biden to retire.
But we are a constitutional republic and as our friend Schmoe Juarez, in Kingston, TN, reminds us, we the people have the power, so “Let’s take a vote… All in favor of Creepy Joe dropping out, say ‘eye’”
