Opinions & Analysis
I saw “controversy” in a lot of headlines today, as it relates to Japetto’s July 4th celebration. Here, ABC News leads with the term, and then never actually talks about any real controversies surrounding the event. In fact, they were forced to cover what was obviously a happy and funny time for at least 750,000 people, in spite of on and off rains.
This NBC coverage on Joe Biden admitting he wasn’t prepared for how Kamala Harris might attack him at the Dem debate last week, makes me laugh: Seriously Joe? Really?!! You’re so deluded now that you don’t even remember your own professional history (Which, by the way, is a matter of public record)?
Beto was a favorite of Politico for a few weeks not that long ago, but based on this coverage it looks like their mood towards the Wannabe Latino has soured considerably. O’Rourke will be among the first thinning of the Democrat herd (literally) vying for their party’s nomination?
By now, everyone has seen a post or meme about Trump seeming to refer to airports existing around the time of the U.S. Revolutionary War. Fox News is out there trying to save face for him, by reporting it was a teleprompter malfunction…Which, could be true as it was raining but, come on: he also said he knew the speech “well”. Japetto was so bad with these stupid defenses of mistakes he’s made, but over the last few months, his age has been showing.
