It’s obvious that Joe Biden’s press availability Friday was scripted. It was so scripted that Chris Stirewalt noticed it. After Biden criticized President Trump for the comments he didn’t make in France 2 years ago, Biden launched into another attack on what Biden calls a “K-shaped recovery.” According to Biden, the Trump economy makes the rich richer while making the poor poorer.

That’s been disproven multiple times by Larry Kudlow alone but Democrats don’t care about facts. Facts aren’t stubborn things to Democrats. They’re irrelevant to today’s Democrats. The first question was posed by The Atlantic’s Edward-Isaac Dovere about The Atlantic’s article that accused President Trump of calling dead WW I soldiers suckers and losers. Dovere asked “When you hear these remarks — ‘suckers,’ ‘losers,’ recoiling from amputees, what does it tell you about President Trump’s soul and the life he leads?”

The next set-up question was asked by CNN’s MJ Lee, who asked this leading question:

I wonder if you worry that this kind of language that comes from the president of the United States can deter some Americans who are tuning into him to not wear masks.

Next was Ed O’Keefe’s two-fer:

CBS News correspondent Ed O’Keefe squeezed in two questions for Biden, the first of which asked what the former vice president thought of Trump’s supposed suggestion to voters that they should vote both by mail and in-person. The second question asked why Biden wasn’t “angrier” at Trump’s reported comments about the fallen soldiers.

Then there’s this:

ABC News correspondent Mary Bruce also questioned Biden about Trump’s attempts to discourage mail-in voting but invoked Russia’s efforts to “sow doubt” in the electoral process and whether Biden was “concerned” that such messaging may be working to disenfranchise his own supporters.

After that, Stirewalt entered the discussion:

So seldom do reporters get to ask Joe Biden questions, so seldom do reporters — this is the second time really in quite a while … and that was shamefully embarrassing,” Stirewalt told “Outnumbered Overtime”. “I mean, there were two questions in there that maybe could have been considered adversarial but that was as bad as when Trump calls on some niche pro-Trump publication to ask him how magnificent his magnificence is.”

Stirewalt singled out O’Keefe for the question about why Biden wasn’t “angrier” about Trump’s reported comments, sarcastically calling it his “favorite.” “I’m just sitting here listening thinking, ‘Don’t you want to know about his plans? Don’t you want to know about the controversy surrounding his plans? Don’t you want to know anything?'” Stirewalt exclaimed. “The closest we got to adversarial questioning was when they were asking him about whether he got his coronavirus test up his nose or whatever.”

Friday morning, the BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics) issued the August Jobs Report. According to the report, the economy created 1,400,000 jobs in August, an astonishing report. As noteworthy as that is, the headline was that the unemployment rate dropped from 10.2% to 8.4%, the second-biggest percentage drop in history. Not a single question was asked about the jobs report or about Biden’s plan to raise taxes. That didn’t fit the media’s agenda, though, so they asked about President Trump’s soul instead.

I won’t call these gas-bags reporters or journalists. They’re Democrat propagandists. Period.
