Oh Douchey Douchey Douchey- Fox News turnip tries to "gotcha" Pres. Biden with predictable results.


As Biden left the podium in the East Room of the White House, Doocy reminded the president that he had said, “if you are fully vaccinated, you no longer need to wear a mask.”

“No I didn’t say that,” Biden responded. “I said if you’re fully vaccinated in an area where you do not have – well, let me clarify that –“

Doocy interrupted to clarify his question: “In May, you made it sound like a vaccine was the ticket to losing the masks forever.”

“That was true at the time!” a visibly agitated president shot back. “Because I thought there were people who were going to understand that getting vaccinated made a gigantic difference. What happened was, a new variant came along, they didn’t get vaccinated, it was spread more rapidly, and more people were getting sick. That’s the difference.”

Reporting from South Carolina.....🏖☀️🌊

On vacation here in North Myrtle Beach. North Myrtle has traditionally been almost all white. It’s just one of those things that’s “understood” I guess.

There don’t appear to be any people of color here. The local TV ads we see for restaurants, home maintenance, auto dealerships, and even personal injury are completely devoid of people of color. I commented on this a few days ago and I’ve seen no change.

No masks. Anywhere. Restaurants, ice cream parlors, grocery stores - none nowhere. My daughter and I went to pick up ice cream the other night and this family was staring at us like we were space aliens.

I’ve taken it upon myself to aerosol spray in the elevators and wipe down the buttons. We are the only ones wearing masks in the elevators. I just pass if someone else is near when I’m about to ride up to our floor.

Hey! We got the place for free!!

The Six Million Dollar Man - 148 seconds of TV greatness

Back when there were 3 networks and only the cream rose to the top. By “cream” I obviously mean - slow motion to extend the script, losing focus on the hero right at the critical moment, and exploding concrete.

Team USA's face masks are getting a gold medal in freaking people out


People on Twitter couldn’t help but notice that the masks the athletes are sporting look eerily similar to the facial apparatus sported by Batman’s enemy Bane.

“Team USA masks for the podium look like the medalists are about to close off Gotham’s bridges and become allies with darkness,” someone wrote, while alluding to “Batman.”


Nike has provided the masks for Team USA athletes, who are required to wear them at all Olympic venues — indoors and outdoors — in Tokyo, including medal ceremonies, the International Olympic Committee said Sunday, according to Reuters. However, they can take them off in order to take pictures.
