From Russia Russia Russia and Orange Man Bad to pet psychics, cat “exclusives,” and sock choices.
The media has been protecting Democrat presidential nominee and former vice president Joe Biden and treating him with kid gloves. Among other stories, they colluded to smother the New York Post bombshell report on Biden family influence peddling, and they acted like it was perfectly acceptable to ask a presidential candidate what flavor milkshake he ordered on the rare occasions he left his basement to campaign.
While I doubt we’ll be seeing any magazine covers with Biden sporting a halo as we did of Barack ‘Teh Won’ Obama, it seems that the media intends to drop the anti-Trump conspiracy theories, falsehoods, daily doses of outraged outrage, and general alarmism that have, for four years, undermined their already shaky credibility with the American people.
Instead of fake news, it appears we will be treated to countless fluff pieces from “journalists” who would be right at home donning a goofy hat and doing yoga on morning television. Let the media slobberfest over Biden begin.
Biden, the Boston Globe gushes, is a “devout Catholic” who “always carries a rosary in his pocket and laces speeches with scripture.”
What they fail to mention, however, is that Biden apparently particularly likes the Book of Palms written, he imagines, by the Palmists.
Oh. My. Heavens.
This is Joe Biden’s Thanksgiving Day message.
He has no idea what the Psalms are.
He calls them the “Palmists” and then looks confused.

He apparently thinks King David was a “palmist.” https://t.co/NrpDAUP0xi

On Saturday, we were treated to a fascinating interview with a pet psychic who got the skinny on what a “great president” Biden will be . . . from his dogs.
Pet psychic Beth Lee-Crowther says Joe Biden’s dogs, Major and Champ, told her they are excited to live in the White House. They also say their master will be “a great president.”https://t.co/8avRWAjZRU

And the hard-hitting reporting doesn’t stop there! Sit down for this one. Should Biden be installed in the White House, he’ll be taking a cat along with his two dogs.
JOURNALISM IS BACK, BABY! https://t.co/vwiyEP6VWR

This latter, mind you, is a CBS “exclusive.”
Meanwhile, top “journalists” are doing the hard work of reporting the color of the socks Biden wears on his whittle footsies.
George H.W. Bush was known for his socks, maybe Biden will be too? Today he wore dark blue socks adorned with lighter blue dogs. (Yes, there are plenty of more substantive things to tweet about but we can have some fun sometimes too.) pic.twitter.com/8xxTusXafQ

All that’s missing is the
segment article in which journalists share Biden’s favorite recipe for chicken pot pie, a “Biden family favorite,” we are breathlessly told by the Washington Post.
