Biden Again Admits That He’s ‘Not Supposed To’ Interact with Reporters

This is some way of governing the public…

What a strange new world the American political machine exists in these days. It was only six months ago that we had a President who, for lack of a nicer way to put it, wouldn’t stop yapping.  Donald Trump was an extraordinary communicator, using Twitter almost reflexively throughout his time in the White House, and sparring with reporters any chance he got.  You could tell that he lived for this, and it was a refreshing and brutally honest way of governing. Now we have “Sleepy Joe” Biden, who very literally believes that he’s not supposed to talk to the public off-script. President Joe Biden expressed concerns after he answered questions from reporters Wednesday, as he and his administration struggle to address multiple crises around the world. Biden answered questions about the gas shortage and a question about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict in the Middle East, before moving to exit the room. When reporters shouted additional questions, Biden paused and replied, “You guys are bad. I’m not supposed to be answering all these questions. I’m supposed to leave. But I can’t resist your questions.” The president then took an additional question about his meeting with Congressional leaders on infrastructure. And this is far from the first time that this has happened… Biden has repeatedly told reporters he would be “in trouble” for taking questions from reporters at White House events — even though he has only held one press conference since becoming president. “Look, I’m sorry. I’m going to — this is the last question I’ll take,” Biden said in April after taking questions from reporters. “I’m really going to be in trouble.” Biden also repeatedly said he would “get in trouble” during a CNN town hall in February. “I’m going to get in trouble,” he lamented to CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “I was supposed to…

Florida Governor Offers Pardons to Anyone Convicted of COVID Infractions

That’s one way to take a stand.

Every day, it becomes more obvious that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has dreams of running for President in 2024, and this week was no exception. The Sunshine State politician has aligned himself heavily with in-state political heavy-hitter Donald Trump on just about any issue out there, even taking some of these ideologies further than the former President himself. It seems as though DeSantis has a rather large grudge with COVID-19 precautions as well, consistently pushing for Florida to move quickly and sternly toward unfettered freedom on the matter.  He was one of the first state lawmakers to rescind coronavirus restrictions, and has made a very public show of it all, which has belied his belief in a higher political calling. On Wednesday, DeSantis took another very public shot at those who continue to see coronavirus as a public health threat in need of government intervention. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis will pardon anyone in the Sunshine State charged for not wearing masks or socially distancing — breaking the news live on air to a gym-owning couple who were facing jail time for defying coronavirus safety recommendations. The Republican governor made the unexpected announcement on Fox News Wednesday as he decried county officials penalizing people. “It’s a total overreach,” he told Laura Ingraham. “These things with health should be advisory, they should not be punitive.” The governor did not mince his words. He broke the news of his pardon directly to Mike and Jillian Carnevale, who faced up to 120 days in jail for repeatedly allowing people to forgo masks at their gym in Plantation in Broward County. “I’m glad you have Mike and Jillian on, and I’m also glad to be on to be able to say that effective tomorrow morning, I’m going to sign a reprieve under my constitutional authority,”…
