#1 – Joe Biden’s Daughter Steps in to Save Him After He Loses It on a Reporter — by Bonchie

Apparently, Biden’s daughter and granddaughter realized that because they eventually stepped in to rescue the beleaguered president, telling the reporters that they couldn’t ask any more questions.

It’s crazy to see his daughter step behind him, waving her hands, saying “no more” while Biden is still talking. They treat him as if he’s totally out of it and unaware of his surroundings, probably because he is totally out of it and unaware of his surroundings. Ivanka Trump could do that to Donald Trump. Or Barack Obama’s daughters telling him when he can speak while he addressed reporters? It’s awkward and it’s not normal. This is not how Presidents, who are still able to use their mind fully, should be treated.

#2 – Disney Arrives at a Crossroads After ‘Lightyear’ and Its Lesbian Kiss Flop — by Bonchie 

This is because these flicks are meant to be enjoyed by children. They also form part of well-established blockbuster franchises. They are the safest bets in Hollywood, and that “Lightyear” hasn’t done well is genuinely surprising. It still managed to earn good numbers, despite the cultural controversy.

That’s not happening, though, and there’s every reason to believe the in-your-face actions of Disney culturally have everything to do with it. The parents have the right to choose what their children are exposed to. The parents have the right of instilling their values including religious ones, which many choose to do.

#3 – Disney Stock Has Tumbled Nearly 50 Percent as Audiences Turn Away — by Brandon Morse 

Disney might be surprised but fans aren’t. Fans have shrugged off their mismanagement of Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar brands. YouTube has produced countless videos that examine the failings of various brands. While each channel may have different conclusions, the consensus is that story writing has been greatly affected.

It has, but those paying attention will know that the reason the stories have suffered is that leftist politics has infected everyone from Disney’s brass to their writing staff.

#4 – Tucker Carlson Exposes Ashley Biden’s Diary and the President’s Politicization of the FBI — Bonchie 

Carlson begins by noting that one of the most scandalous charges is that the president had once sex with his daughter. This caused her to develop sexual compulsion problems later on in life. And to be clear, the diary is real. The New York Times confirmed that in a report late last year, which means the only defense here is that Biden’s daughter is lying.

However, the fact that she isn’t seems to be covered by media coverage makes it seem rather irrelevant. It is possible that Ivanka Trump has written a diary entry in which Donald Trump was accused of something very close to molestation. Don’t you think reporters might be asking questions about that? Don’t you think there’d be further investigations into the matter to see if the claims are true and how far the inappropriate behavior went? However, Fox News and the other hard news media have completely covered up the story pretending that it never happened.

#5 – Biden Fell off His Bike but WH Deputy Press Sec Just Made It All Worse — by Nick Arama

Biden — in his nasty way — generally won’t even call President Donald Trump by his name when he refers to Trump. You may have picked up on this, he refers to him as “the former guy” or some other similar term. The “former guy” is the leftist term for disparaging Trump. That’s where we’re at now with Biden — it’s juvenile. He’s also reportedly been throwing tantrums that his approval numbers are lower than Trump’s at the same point– and that they’re ‘worse than Carter numbers’ now.

Biden is now passing that grace on to his staff, which includes Andrew Bates, his Deputy Press Secretary. Bates appeared to believe that Trump’s boss is falling down and the right time to attack him. He is actually doing this, and not updating us on Biden’s progress. This is childish.
