The usual suspects pretty upset President Biden declared war on ALL WHITE PEOPLE yesterday.
Looks like somebody heard President Joe Biden talking about him during his inaugural address.
Sen. Rand Paul on Fox News: "If you read his speech and listen to it carefully, much of it is thinly-veiled innuend… https://t.co/oevaRPjrV1— Ryan Struyk (@Ryan Struyk)1611193950.0
Oh goodness! Did Joe Biden call Rand Paul a white supremacist or a racist or a liar or an every name in the book? How rude, if true!
What's that old expression? "A hit dog will holler"? Or "If your white hood fits, Rand"?
Yes, the senator who just had some problems with banning LYNCHING thinks he heard Joe Biden call him a white supremacist, racist liar in his inaugural speech.
So did the wingnuts on Newsmax:
TOM BASILE (HOST): [I]t was very dark.
It was no "American carnage," but go off.
BASILE: It was actually, you know, not unifying. It was actually quite divisive. It's very difficult to drive a unifying message when you're going to simultaneously talk about an overblown sense of white supremacy and systemic racism. And you lead a party that is driving cancel culture in America. You know, oftentimes when he was talking about unity I kept on thinking to myself, so does this apply to conservatives as well? Does this apply to pro-life people? Does this apply to people who've been cancelled at their jobs, at their universities, in the media, in their own lives because they believe in traditional American values, in more conservative values?
Joe Biden did intolerant disunifying cancel culture to white supremacists and racists! Can't we just compromise and say SOME white supremacism and racism are OK?
It wasn't just Newsmax and Rand, of course. Fox News was full of it.
So many bad policies!
President Joe Biden (bear with us, we'll eventually stop typing that so excitedly) made pretty good use of his first half-day on the job yesterday, taking a whole bunch of garbage policies from the previous administration out to the curb. Biden signed a whole bunch of executive orders to either undo actions taken by the president before him, or to take action against the pandemic that the prior administration hadn't bothered with. So let's take a look at the 15 EOs (and two directives to agencies) that Biden signed yesterday. No, he did not sign one to give you a pony. That's next week, be patient.
Almost all the items on his to-do list for the first day addressed one or more of the four crises Biden said would be the focus of his presidency: The pandemic and the related economic fallout, climate change, and racial justice, including the previous administration's war on immigration, all of which got worse under Donald Trump (we had to name him eventually).

As we type this at you, Donald Trump, that motherfucker, has just lifted off on Marine One from the White House, for the very last time ever in world history. He was supposed to leave much earlier, but we imagine he was busy taking a shit. He's now on his way to Joint Base Andrews, where a crowd of military that's required to be there, plus whoever else Trump managed to bribe or coerce into showing up to wave him "bye bye!" will greet him, so that he may get on Air Force One for the very last time and fly the fuck away.
And then we can breathe one of the many deep sighs of relief we will breathe today. Because it's here. For real. It's January 20, 2021, and as of noon, Donald Trump is not the fucking president. Exhale.
This will be your inauguration day liveblog, and we'll be here updating it all day. Wonkette will have other posts, of course, like for instance on Trump's last-minute pardons of Steve Bannon — who was literally being prosecuted for fucking Trump's own supporters out of their WALL money — and a bunch of other people. We'll do our best to share you those posts in here when they go up.
Here's live coverage of the day, from NBC News:
As if Joe Biden is ever going to need 'advice' from Trump LOL OK.
You remember who Sue Gordon is? It was 805,000 Trump scandals ago, but she was supposed to become the acting director of national intelligence (DNI) after Donald Trump fired former DNI Dan Coats for refusing to bury the evidence that Russia sought to interfere in the 2020 election to help steal it for Trump. It was riiiiight before the Ukraine crimes that formed the basis for Trump's first impeachment started to come to light.
Gordon was, by law, supposed to become acting DNI because she was Coats's deputy. Trump did not want that, obviously because she was an extremely well-liked CIA official, which meant she wasn't the type of ghoulish bootlicker Trump wanted in that position. They pushed her out of the way, and she stepped aside with a chef's kiss fuck you of a resignation letter to Trump. "Mr. President – I offer this letter as an act of respect & patriotism, not preference. You should have your team. Godspeed, Sue." Whew.
(The guy who got the job, Admiral Joseph Maguire, ended up getting fired by Trump because, even though he tried to hide Trump's Ukraine crimes from Congress, his chief briefer Shelby Pierson told Congress Russia was trying to interfere in the 2020 election to help steal it for Trump. Haha, it's almost like we typed those exact words about a different person one paragraph ago because this was a pattern in the Trump presidency.)
Point is, that's who Sue Gordon is, since you forgot. And this weekend she showed up in the Washington Post with a stark warning: Don't give intel briefings to Donald Trump like some kind of common "ex-president."
