I’m glad partisans have the insurrection to focus on because without this emotional touchstone they might have to deal with awkward realities, like how Joe Biden hasn’t had a formal press conference in over 45 days.
The lack of access for legacy media has gotten so maddening, the Washington Post wrote an op-ed about it, stating stuff like this:
Mr. Biden has been in office for 46 days. It was only after journalists’ complaints became increasingly loud — and following a wave of bad press — that Ms. Psaki announced Friday that the president would appear for an extended, unaccompanied question-and-answer session with reporters.
Over the last few days, Biden’s appearances have been cut short, seemingly just as he’s getting ready to answer questions. What are his handlers so afraid of?
To deflect from the optics of a cognitively impaired old man who seems to struggle with things like knowing where he is and what he’s doing, partisans like Don Pogreba are getting all the mileage they possible can from January 6th, including this deceitful depiction, which starts with the title, Two Months After an Armed Insurrection is a Bad Time to Print Matt Rosendale’s Conspiracist Lies about Elections. From the link:
How long does it take to forgive a politician for stoking the flames of insurrection to such a fever pitch that an armed mob literally stormed through the most important halls of our democracy and killed police officers defending it? For Montana newspapers, when it comes to Republicans, about two months, give or take.
This paragraph features NO links to the sources Pogreba is using to back up his claims that multiple police officers were killed as a result of the crowd breaching security at the Capitol building. Gee, why do you think that is?
The fear-spell of the insurrection won’t last forever. Eventually partisans will need a new fear-spell event to distract their base from the senile old man they forced into viability for the presidency. I’m sure these clever manipulators will provide some new tasty morsel for the agitated populace to chew on.
