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.
There appears to be no end to comedic material from the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee and the ice cream-hoarding Speaker of the House of Representatives. This week, flyover folks were caught in head-scratching moments, wondering aloud with others – from a distance of six feet – why former Vice President Joe Biden’s struggling campaign made yet another error in technological judgment and why Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) gushed about gourmet treats during the rough American Economic Armageddon.
The Biden campaign unveiled a new, hip techno tool to boost their candidate’s presence on social media, hoping to lure supporters to showcase their approval of the former vice president, who is quarantined in his basement podcasting his plans to cure COVID-19. Apparently, his using words like “malarkey” has folks thinking he is past his expiration date of the 1930s, and making a surge to be relevant in 2020 is a bit of an uphill battle these days. Anyhoo, the public has accessed this unforeseen practical joke by using an internet graphic that was designed to allow Biden’s supporters to insert their own pictures and slogans to declare their allegiance to Team Joe.
The app swiftly went into the unintended-consequences ditch as clever contributors added a few not-so-flattering photos and phrases – including references to Burisma Holdings and the voter that Biden inexplicably addressed in Iowa as “Look, Fat” and then called “a damn liar.”
Michele Harrison, in Mobridge, SD, wondered, “What were they thinking by letting people do this?”
What in the blazes, indeed?

“The Bloomberg one cracked me up — and inspired me,” he said while enjoying a cocktail. Lord knows what Mobley will come up with once he gets his hands on the avatar Joe “tool.”
This tactic has grown tentacles in flyover country. Oh, but there is so much more on the minds of Middle Americans.
Madam Speaker managed to put her spectator pumps in her pie-hole this week while appearing on The Late, Late Show With James Corden, gushing about her obsession over ice cream. Make that $13-a-pint designer ice cream, as many in the nation struggle to put food on the table. To be sure, it was a slap in the face for those heavily impacted by a national closed-for-business pandemic. But what an opportunity for the Trump campaign. It released a powerful ad, with a collage of clips of COVID-19-ravaged citizens, begging for help, while Pelosi bragged about her fully stocked $24,000 refrigerator. It was so effective, The View’s Meghan McCain referred to it as “a kill shot.”
And for once, in a long while, Ms. McCain didn’t take fire.
Heartlander Bill Griffin was quick to point out the real issue: “The problem isn’t that she’s rich and has two giant refrigerators stocked with ice cream; it’s that she went on TV to flaunt them while millions of Americans are jobless and struggling.” The message echoed from the mountains to the prairies.
“So, the left hates elites, wants to help the working class, loves poor people, but also loves an incredibly privileged life-long politician. She is demanding more from taxpayers while having a 24k fridge full of gourmet ice cream. How does the left not just HATE this crap? Yes, the ad IS effective,” added Corey Merrill in Missoula, MT.
As Marie Antoinette once attempted to help those too poor to afford bread by suggesting they eat cake, has Pelosi revealed her own strategy? Let them eat ice cream.
