CBS "News:" Biden's "grandfatherly appeal and warmth" will heal the world at the NATO summit.

Diplomats and international relations experts praised President Joe Biden, the oldest president in American history at 80-years-old, for his "grandfatherly appeal" to world leaders in a CBS News article on Tuesday.

"President Biden is the old, great trans-Atlanticist," European fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, Liana Fix, said.

Fix also lauded Biden for his support of Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. "You really saw that Biden was putting his arm around Zelenskyy, encouraging him to continue to lead as if suggesting, 'I got your back,'" Fix said. "It's a grandfatherly appeal, and the warmth and wisdom from his age seems to transfer."


CBS News argued that Biden has foreign policy experience that has been "[h]oned over decades in the Senate and eight years as vice president." Those years give Biden a "personal appeal" that CBS claimed has become "one of his strongest assets on the world stage, allowing him to smooth ruffled feathers and lead a coalition of allies that has managed to remain remarkably united in its response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine."

Joe Scarborough: You know, Joe Biden is responsible for the NATO alliance.

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Eugene Robinson on Tuesday's Morning Joe procured an excessively sycophantic rant about President Joe Biden's foreign policy amid Russia's war on Ukraine and an upcoming NATO summit he was in Europe to attend. They credited Biden for the introduction of Sweden and Finland into NATO, as well as for the existence of most of America's military alliances across the globe.

Scarborough gave Biden credit for the strength of NATO and its partners- which have existed for decades before Biden got into the White House, but also absurdly suggested Biden's leadership was the reason the US had allies such as South Korea, the Philippines, Australia, and even Guam, which was not an independent country but instead a US territory.

Scarborough's attempt to discredit decades of American foreign policy initiatives and steal credit for them on behalf of the Biden administration could be equated to a foreign policy version of plagiarism.


There was one massive problem with Scarborough's assertions. Joe Biden didn't initiate those alliances. NATO was founded shortly after World War II, and expanded since then. Sweden and Finland entering the alliance was a direct result of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, not some kind of amazing leadership by the Biden administration. Putin's carnage did more to strengthen NATO than Biden did.

And as for Asia, you'd think Scarborough would be smart enough to know Guam wasn't a country we had an alliance with. It was a US-owned island since 1898. The Quad alliance was formed in 2007 by Shinzo Abe and came back to prominence under President Donald Trump in 2017. Countries like the Philippines and Australia and South Korea have been US allies since the Cold War. India became closer to the US with the Indo-US nuclear agreement under Bush and Trump's BECA deal.

Robinson called it "really an extraordinary piece of statecraft and diplomacy that President Biden and Secretary Blinken and Secretary Austin and his team have put together that make this happen."

If you're thinking, "Well, it can't get more sycophantic than that," then: Gentlemen, I give you the Joy F'n Behar.

California blocked a law that would have potentially sent child traffickers to jail for life.

They're totally against child trafficking you guys. Wink.

The California Assembly committee on public safety blocked a bill that would increase the charges for human trafficking.

The Golden State lower house committee considered Senate Bill 14, which would make the human trafficking of children a "serious felony." Serious felony charges under California law currently include murder, rape, and any other crime which may incur the death penalty or life sentence in state prison.

However, instead of upping the ante on child traffickers, the California Assembly Public Safety Committee nuked the measure on Tuesday.

"Horrible!" someone yelled as victims sobbed at the dais.

This just in: Megan Rapinoe is as ugly inside as she is outside.

Bitch looks like Walter Kovacs with pink hair.

When Megan Rapinoe, a former co-captain of America's national women's soccer team, was asked whether she would welcome a "transgender woman" on the U.S. women's soccer team -- "even if that woman took the place of someone assigned female at birth" -- Rapinoe was unflinching: "Absolutely."

"'You're taking a real woman's place,' that's the part of the argument that's still extremely transphobic. I see trans women as real women," the outspoken athlete and progressive activist told Time in an interview published on Monday. "What you're saying automatically in the argument -- you're sort of telling on yourself already -- is you don't believe these people are women. Therefore, they're taking the other spot. I don't feel that way."

Weird that she's gotten so passionate on this issue... as she retires, says Riley Gaines.

"Had Megan Rapinoe been asked [about biological men playing on the USWNT] ... while trying to advance to the height of her career, she would not have the same opinions," Gaines said.

"Because a man could easily take her place. Easily."


Gaines went on to invite Rapinoe on her new OutKick podcast, "Gaines for Girls."

"Consider this an official invite," Gaines challenged. "Megan Rapinoe, I would love it if you joined the new 'Gaines for Girls' podcast where we could have an open dialogue about the issue of men competing in women's sports."

By the way, Megan Rapinoe just "told on herself" as a racist who hates black men.

"I don't want to mince words about it," Rapinoe said. "Dave Chappelle making jokes about trans people directly leads to violence, whether it's verbal or otherwise, against trans people. When Martina or Sage or whoever are talking about this, people aren't hearing it just in the context of elite sports. They're saying, 'The rest of my life, this is how I'm going to treat trans people.'"

Ugly leftwing women and progressive femcels such as Megan Rapinoe should not be consulted about anything having to do with culture, society, or politics. They are too filled with resentment and hatred to think clearly. It's not our fault that no one ever asked you to dance, uggo.

A Georgia Democrat has switched parties over the Democrats' determination to prioritize the teachers unions over children's welfare:

A Peach State lawmaker who angered her Democratic colleagues in the Georgia state House of Representatives over her support for a recent school choice bill has announced she is officially switching parties.

Mesha Mainor -- a Democrat who has represented District 56 in the Georgia state House since January 2021 -- announced the decision shortly before noon Tuesday that she will switch her party registration to Republican.

"When I decided to stand up on behalf of disadvantaged children in support of school choice, my Democrat colleagues didn't stand by me," Mainor explained of her decision in a statement to Fox News Digital. "They crucified me. When I decided to stand up in support of safe communities and refused to support efforts to defund the police, they didn't back me. They abandoned me."

And I am telling you, that motherf***er ain't real!
