President Trump has proven he is the embodiment of a true leader after contracting the coronavirus while performing the duties of Commander in Chief, instead of keeping himself isolated in a bubble in the White House.
Vice President Joe Biden, on the other hand, has locked himself in his basement for months, leaving for mostly brief media appearances where he rarely takes questions from the press.
In a now-viral video clip, Biden credited people’s ability to stay sequestered in their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic because “some black woman was able to stack the grocery shelf.”
Why would Twitter delete a video that was nothing more than quoting a presidential candidate, @jack?

Fox News reported the full version of Biden’s comments:
“And they say, ‘Well, why in the hell would you say that Biden? You just talked about all these difficulties.’ Well, I’ll tell you why. Because the American public, the blinders have been taken off,” Biden told the roundtable attendees. “They’ve all of a sudden seen a hell of a lot clearer. They’re saying, ‘Jeeze, the reason I was able to stay sequestered in my home is because some Black woman was able to stack the grocery shelf. Or a young Hispanic is out there, these dreamers are out there, 60,000 of them acting as first responders and nurses and docs.’ Or all of a sudden people are realizing, ‘My Lord, these people have done so much. Not just Black, White, across the board, have done so much for me. We can do this. We can get things done.’ And I think they’re ready.”
Biden was quickly roasted on Twitter for his comments, with former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee pointing out the hypocrisy of the media for ignoring his comments. “He didn’t really say that, did he?” he wrote. “Yes, he did. If @realDonaldTrump said that he’d be called racist. But @POTUS didn’t say it. Joe did & the media won’t say a word about it.”

CBS WH Correspondent Says he Felt Safer Reporting in North Korea than at White House
Unsurprisingly, Tracy is getting hammered on Twitter for his comments
After White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany tested positive for coronavirus today, CBS correspondent Ben Tracy made a rather dramatic proclamation: He felt safer while reporting in the totalitarian dictatorship of North Korea than he does currently reporting at the White House.
After posting multiple hysterical tweets about McEnany’s diagnosis and how she didn’t wear a mask while briefing reporters yesterday, Tracy wrote, “I felt safer reporting in North Korea than I currently do reporting at The White House. This is just crazy.”

McEnany announced earlier today that she had been diagnosed with coronavirus after testing negative every day since Thursday for the disease. She currently has no symptoms.
Fortunately for Tracy, McEnany also noted in her statement that no members of the press, reporters or producers were listed as close contacts by the White House Medical Unit.
“As an essential worker, I have worked diligently to provide needed information to the American people at this time,” she said. “With my recent positive test, I will begin the quarantine process and will continue working on behalf of the American people remotely.”

According to the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), North Korea is listed as the second most censored country. The list is based on research into the country’s tactics, “tactics ranging from imprisonment and repressive laws to surveillance of journalists and restrictions on internet and social media access.”
In September 2017, two South Korean journalists and their publishers were sentenced to death in absentia in North Korea for “insulting the dignity of the country.”
“North Korea continues to be one of the most repressive countries in the world for journalists,” writes the CPJ.
Unsurprisingly, Tracy is getting hammered on Twitter for his comments. View some of the hilarious responses HERE.
Affluent Chicagoans Fleeing Due to Leadership Inability to Calm BLM Violence
Many people, including President Trump himself, noted during their Republican National Convention speeches that Democratic-run cities are experiencing violence and looting, as the leaders whose policies are to blame are safely hidden in privileged areas. However, areas like Chicago have become so bad, affluent neighborhoods are no longer safe and citizens are getting out of dodge.
“Incidents of widespread looting and soaring homicide figures in Chicago have made national news during an already tumultuous year,” writes the Chicago Tribune. “As a result, some say residents in affluent neighborhoods downtown, and on the North Side, no longer feel safe in the city’s epicenter and are looking to move away.”
Liberal leadership has been unsuccessful at subduing violence from the Black Lives Matter’s highjacked movement. With no end of destruction in sight and spontaneous eruptions of violence, while residents say “they understand why protesters and rioters have poured onto the streets of downtown, and some acknowledge that crime is worse in other parts of Chicago” they still want out reports the Chicago Tribune.
Some people “agree with protesters that something systemic needs to be changed” but they “don’t want to wait it out here in the city, fearful of stepping outside at night and hoping for things to maybe get better.” A 30-year-old nurse who lives in the River North area said, “not to make it all about us; the whole world is suffering…but I do think that I’ve never had to think about my own safety in this way before.”
Hopefully, this will be a lesson to Chicagoans and similar cities, that they need to vote out their Democratic leadership who refuse to stand up to the violent protesters and also refuse to accept help and assistance offered directly from President Trump. 60-year-old Neil Spun has lived in Chicago for over half his life and is deeply conflicted about moving. A state worker, Spun said “there have been rights before, and looting. It just seems to me now that the city isn’t doing anything about it. I don’t see this getting any better, and so I’d like to leave.” Residents would be far better off voting in new leadership instead of succumbing to liberal policies that change their communities beyond recognition.
