A President Who Reads Things

 


It is incredibly UNFAIR that President Joe Biden actually reads things and processes information like a normal human being. This is destroying any chance of Trump being elected in 2024, or so I am told:

He's [referring to Biden] shown more willingness to answer shouted questions than Obama was, weighing in on his predecessor's impeachment trial even as the White House insisted he was focused on other things.

The President's Daily Brief, a highly classified update on the country's top intelligence, is back to a daily occurrence after happening only sporadically under Trump. Joined in the Oval Office by Vice President Kamala Harris -- who has used an iPad to receive the briefing, like Obama -- Biden is run through the update by a range of intelligence professionals.

He has expressed a preference for a fire built in the Oval Office fireplace, and sometimes adds a log himself to keep it going. His dogs, two German Shepherds called Major and Champ, sometimes join him.

President Biden should stop and think about how this makes Trump look like an insane bag of screaming meat. And then he should go on doing whatever it is that a normal president does because that is certainly calming me down. I don't know about you, but I'll take more of this, please.

And, yes, you would not be wrong for imagining a scenario where President Obama or any other Democratic president would have been impeached and driven from office simply by ignoring the PDB. The standards applied to Democrats are easy to see--they have to be perfect, they have to have everything go right for them, and they have to govern responsibly and be on top of everything briefed to them.

A Republican president simply has to be white, have something of a pulse, and he can howl and scream and shit himself in public and it's your fault for thinking that's wrong.
