(FiveNation.com)- A billboard cropped up along the side of the road somewhere in Wisconsin showing President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris with “Dumb and Dumber” printed below them. Unsurprisingly, it went viral on social media.
One Twitter user posted a picture of the billboard that was retweeted over 3,800 times and received 14.7 thousand “likes.”
Not everybody was pleased. The replies included the huffy, well-I-neverers that always turn up when you mock a Democrat.
The Leftist Twitter account “PatriotTakes” took time out from screeching about Congresswoman Lauren Boebert to post the picture, tweeting “Dumbest spent money on this sign.”
At this point, with both Kamala and Joe’s approval numbers deep underwater, it’s surprising that more billboards like this one aren’t popping up across the country.
Things have gotten so bad in Bidenland, White House officials have been holding briefings with major newsrooms begging them for favorable news coverage. The White House must miss the good old days when all the news media reported on was Joe’s trips to the ice cream parlor.
Monday, CNN’s Brian Stelter and Oliver Darcy reported that the White House is urging establishment media outlets to put a happy spin on the horrifying economic news. The White House, mistaking the supposed “free press” for its communications office, wants outlets like CNN to help “reshape” the economic news to make it more favorable for old Joe.
In these “briefings,” the White House is arguing that the economy is much better today than it was a year ago, and it wants the media to report that. But the economy isn’t better than it was a year ago by any measure. Consumer prices are higher, inflation is through the roof, the supply chain bottlenecks continue, and the labor force participation rate is abysmal.
In other words, The White House wants the media to lie.
According to Stelter and Darcy, the “conversations” between the White House and news people “have been productive.”
Speaking of Dumb and Dumber, this is a dumb idea.
Trust in the American corporate news media is at an all-time low as it is. Learning that the White House is begging these guys to lie to pull Joe’s butt out of the fire isn’t going to improve matters.
And it won’t improve things for Joe Biden either.
