Trump Savages Biden As Soon As He Finishes Golf Swing: 'You Think Biden Can Hit a Ball Like That?'

Western Journal

Much to the chagrin of his vehement critics, former President Donald Trump has no intention of going anywhere — and what’s more, he’s still got all the energy and zest for life that put his 2020 rival to shame.

While Trump’s 2020 rival, of course, is the one residing in the White House and leading our country (if one can call it that), the comparisons between the two men are hardly favorable to now-President Joe Biden, at least when youthfulness, energy and general coherence are the factors being considered.

This was obviously on the former president’s mind in the midst of what appears to have been a particularly good golf game he played this week as captured in a clip shared on social media on Wednesday.

In the video, Trump hit what the enthusiastic comments of onlookers indicated was a very nice drive and celebrating by asking his companions, “You think Biden can hit a ball like that?”

They did not.

“He couldn’t get it past the first tee!” Trump added, as someone could be heard suggesting that Biden would “forget where he hit it!”



The comment, of course, is classic Trump. He made a similar quip ahead of an exhibition boxing match earlier this month between Vitor Belfort and Evander Holyfield when he was asked who he’d like to take on in the ring.

Wisely opting to skip the professional boxers, the former president suggested he could easily take on Biden, who he predicted would “go down very, very quickly.”

The thing is, while Trump has always loved throwing these kinds of jabs, whether in the White House or not, none of them is remotely necessary — Biden’s job performance and general appearance and behavior in public alone scream the unfavorable comparison between our former and current presidents.

Earlier this year, Biden did indeed go down very easily — not while boxing his former rival, but while merely boarding Air Force One, which presented itself as too arduous a task for the oldest sitting president in U.S. history at 78.

It’s easy enough to target Biden’s age, but the thing is, Trump is only three years younger. And yet he never fell asleep in public, lost his train of thought countless times, stumbled while going up stairs or was kept sheltered from the press.

Quite the opposite.

Trump loved talking to anyone who would listen, and one has to admit — regardless of whether you approve or disapprove of his combative, unorthodox manner of speech — he was always quick on his feet while doing so.

He was ready with quick, biting retorts to reporters and debate opponents (and moderators, for that matter), and even had sneaky little quips while meeting with his foreign counterparts.

And how many times did he stop and talk to the press pool while leaving the White House, shouting over the whirring propellers of Marine One, taking all their questions while taking every opportunity to trash their coverage of his presidency?

Biden, on the other hand, after being kept in his basement for almost the entirety of his presidential campaign, was carefully sheltered from the media for months before he gave his first solo news conference as president. And when he finally did, he seemed to have brought with him notes and cards to help him identify reporters and answer their questions.

Meanwhile, he’s been seen being herded away from the media by his handlers, even when he appears, however feebly, willing to answer their questions.

This is understandable when you consider that this is what often happens when he does make comments in public:

And he’s made it painfully apparent that someone doesn’t want him talking to the media too much:


According to the book “Peril” from Washington Post journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, Trump staffers described this exerted effort to keep Biden away from the press as “the wall.”

Very serious and frequent concerns have been raised about Biden’s cognitive health, which, when you consider the panicked behavior of his aides and an admission from his own press secretary that he probably shouldn’t be talking to reporters on his own, leads one to wonder: If our own president is so incapable of carrying out some of the basic tasks that go along with being commander-in-chief, who is really running the show?

So no, to answer Trump’s question, I don’t think Biden could hit a ball like that. There are a whole lot of things that he simply can’t do as well as Trump could, or as well as any normal, healthy, energetic person.

The scary thing is, Biden’s the one leading our country — supposedly.

Vicious Tweet By Alec Mocking Cop for ‘Wrongful’ Shooting Resurfaces After Baldwin Kills Woman on Set

Western Journal

Published

on

Those who live by the sword die by the sword.

Alec Baldwin certainly lived out this biblical proverb on Thursday.

The Hollywood veteran accidentally shot and killed a cinematographer while filming a movie in Sante Fe, New Mexico. During filming, Baldwin was required to fire a gun loaded with blanks. As it turns out, the gun discharged either shrapnel or a bullet, killing 42-year-old Halyna Hutchins and injuring the film’s director, Joel Souza.

So where does the Christian proverb come into play?

Back in 2017, Baldwin excoriated a police officer for shooting a violent suspect.

“I wonder how it must feel to wrongfully kill someone,” Baldwin tweeted along with the Los Angeles Times’ coverage of the shooting.

However, the officer was exonerated of any wrongdoing.

According to the Times, a Huntington Beach police officer was seen struggling with a man outside a convenience store.

Amid the struggle, the man pulled an object from the officer’s utility belt, which prompted the officer to step back and begin firing.

A bystander who captured the incident on video confirmed to the Times that the suspect started the fight after the officer approached his vehicle.

The officer was identified as Eric Esparza by The Orange County Register. Both the city of Huntington Beach and a federal judge determined the shooting was justified.

The suspect, 27-year-old Dillan Tabares, was believed to have beaten an 80-year-old man to death only three days prior.

Nevertheless, at a time when Esparza was likely at his lowest, having just been forced to kill a man, Baldwin tweeted his condemnation.

WARNING: The following contains graphic language that some readers will find offensive.

“Defend himself? By shooting the guy? What kind of a f**king idiot are you?” Baldwin wrote in a subsequent tweet.

Now, Baldwin is in nearly the same position Esparza was in four years ago. He is likely devastated at having been involved in such a tragic accident.

Hopefully, in the future, Baldwin won’t assume that every police officer involved in a shooting is either bloodthirsty or incompetent.

He now understands the pain many officers carry with them every single day.

Buttigieg Tells Americans to Get Used to ‘Disruptions,’ ‘Shocks to the System’

Western Journal

Published

on

Having less is just the way life goes in President Joe Biden’s America, according to Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

Buttigieg, who was on paternity leave for months as the supply chain crisis intensified, made the interview rounds this week and put a happy face on the crisis.

In comments Wednesday, he indicated Americans will need to get used to delays and potentially seeing empty shelves for the foreseeable future.

“There are going to be disruptions and shocks to the system as long as the pandemic continues,” he said, according to Reuters.

Rating firm Moody’s said Wednesday that the supply chain issues plaguing America will likely not subside any time soon, and shortages, higher transportation costs and higher prices will ripple through the economy.

But Buttigieg found a sunny side in all that when he popped in for a chat on “The View.”

Is the Biden administration totally incompetent?

“Americans have more money in their pockets compared to a year ago,” Buttigieg said, according to ABC News.

“Where they used to maybe spend it on going to shows or travel, they’ve been more likely to spend it on things, which is why actually we have a record number of goods coming through our ports.”

“Retail sales are through the roof, that’s part of why we have this challenge.”

Buttigieg also put in a brief plug for the infrastructure bill House Democrats have been holding hostage for weeks.

“There’s no easy fix. There’s no magic wand, but there are a lot of things we can do,” Buttigieg said. “We’re relying on infrastructure that was built decades ago, sometimes a century ago.”

His comments on “The View” echoed those made during his Sunday interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“Certainly a lot of the challenges that we’ve been experiencing this year will continue into next year. But there are both short-term and long-term steps that we can take to do something about it,” Buttigieg told host Jake Tapper.

“Look, part of what’s happening isn’t just the supply side, it’s the demand side. Demand is off the charts. This is one more example of why we need to pass the infrastructure bill,” he continued.

“There are $17 billion in the President’s infrastructure plan for ports alone and we need to deal with these long-term issues that have made us vulnerable to these kinds of bottlenecks when there are demand fluctuations, shocks and disruptions like the ones that have been caused by the pandemic.”

Tucker Carlson Tonight” host Tucker Carlson said Tuesday that instead of leaders telling Americans they can fix the problems of the nation, the Biden administration is telling Americans to live with them.

Here’s how Carlson summed up the trend: “As your quality of life declines, you are instructed not to notice.”

Slamming an Op-Ed published by The Washington Post that scolded Americans for “[ranting] about short-staffed stores and supply chain woes,” Carlson made that into a symbol of what’s wrong with the nation.

“So if you don’t like the fact the shelves are bare in your local store, don’t throw a fit. Don’t be an entitled little tool. Lower your expectations. What did you expect in America? Come on. Bread lines, we’ve always had bread lines. It’s sort of charmingly retro, these bread lines. Don’t complain as your life becomes worse and as your country degrades,” he said.

“That’s the message, and not surprisingly, that message is coming directly from the people who are making your life worse and destroying the country. That would, of course, would be the White House.”
