Wasn’t that so nice? President Joe Biden’s administration sure has higher production values and standards than Trump’s Presidential Apprentice. Much more likable cast, too. This show looks to have legs.

David WaldmanGreg Dworkin and Armando are here today, so you know we have a lot of information to go through. Sit down and pay attention. In two hours you can get back to your Bernie memes.

Is it only one day after “Day One”? Because, Joe Biden seems to already be weeks ahead on getting things done. He hasn’t golfed once, or even worn a tan suit. The President, has however said, “You’re fired!” to three of Donald Trump’s worst appointees. Joe makes this look so easy. After all, he has been practicing a while, and the fact is, Mr. Biden is also well suited for the position. Oh, and he won the election with a clear mandate.

All of this is hitting the Q-losers really hard. Without hate or fear, there isn’t much to rally behind. It’s killing right wing pundits, as fear and hate are what they use to pay their mortgages. Chasing after satire, Fox is now alarmed about COVID-19 deaths. Karl Rove pops out of some hole, shocked that the President pointed right at him and called him a racist. Republicans want Joe to understand that there can never be unity if there’s accountability.

Speaking of COVID-19 deaths, there sure are a lot of them, and the Trump administration somehow managed to have less than no plan to fix that. Joe Biden’s team’s “square one” therefore ends up being a mile behind the starting line. Former Mr. Olympia, Arnold Schwarzenegger, suggests everyone shut up and listen to the experts.

Democrats need a power sharing agreement with the Republicans… or is it the Patriot Party? Nuking the filibuster would seem to be the response, if no agreement on what extraordinary circumstances" to use it is achieved.

Michael Flynn is a spy, but is his brother General Charles Flynn also an enemy agent? Someone stood the National Guard down on January 6, and Charles Flynn’s all-cap denials of being involved are turning out to be false.
