An asshole nitpicks Joe Biden's speech

In an article titled "Fact-checking Bidenís address to the nation" today's Washington Post gave a petty prick some front-page space to crap on a REAL president.

He quibbled with the number of deaths in the pandemic compared to the number of deaths in past wars.

Then, he was unhinged enough to imply that Trump gave Biden a running start on vaccinations???

I like the Washington Post, but why they allowed a cretin to spout shit on their pages is beyond me. For the last four years, they should have had Trump's crime-of-the-day in huge bold letters on the front page every single day. They didn't. Now they let some piss ant knock Joe Biden over petty crap? Fuck them.

1. It's revolting.

I glimpsed Twitter this morning and saw "Dementia Joe" was trending.

It's like criticizing the allied soldiers liberating the concentration camps in WW2 by saying, "Their uniforms were wrinkled."

13. They're just mean, and now it's on full display.

They donít care who they hurt, who dies, who they influence to do truly stupid, harmful things. They just like feeling clever and getting whatever cheap attaboys they get.

Otoh, that Dementia Joe hashtag got grabbed and run with by the liberal crowd and theyíre whipping some ass with it. 🤣

2. I don't get it, either

The Washington Post and The NY Times continually hold Democrats to higher standards than Republicans. I really don't understand this kind of editorial slanting by supposedly "liberal" news outlets.

By the way, it's "pissant," one word meaning an insignificant or contemptible person or thing. It's considered "vulgar slang" by most dictionaries. (Sorry to be a vocabulary cop!)

3. Somebody is coordinating NYT and WaPo attempts to paint Former Guy as a COVID hero.

Roger Stone? MAGAT Haberman?

4. The comments are pushing back on Kessler's assessment.

"Who fact checks Kessler?
And when did he apply any such standards to Trump?
If this is all he could come up with , WHY did WAPO even bother us with his petty nitpicking?"

6. Well, he did write the book

"Donald Trump and His Assault on Truth: The President's Falsehoods, Misleading Claims and Flat-Out Lies".

5. Kessler's job is to fact check and he fact checks both sides.

Do you want him to only report on gop falsehoods?

Beside, he didn't rate Biden's speech on the pinocchio scale, and called the two instances as "stretching the truth", which it was.

10. Trumps running start was an impairment. Walking into the chaos mess and unorganized distribution

the Biden group had to clean out the mess before restratigizing to deliver.

15. True that. But what Trump created ended up costing Biden time because such a mess Biden had to

figure it out and clean it up before he could implement.

12. Yes, let's give Trump full marks

Trump promised 20 million vaccinations by the end of December when he opened the national reserve of vaccinations. Actual number delivered? Considerably fewer than 20 million, and there was no national reserve of vaccines.

Biden promised 100 million vaccinations in his first 100 days, a number dismissed as reckless or wildly optimistic. Actual number of days it took to reach 100 million vaccinations? 50 days.

Gauge your fact-stretching accordingly.
