At the White House Correspondents Dinner, the classless shell-of-a-president Joe Biden dunks on Tucker Carlson losing his job at Fox News.
“The truth ius, we really have got a record to be proud of… ’vaccinated’ the nation… But the job isn't finished… I mean, it is finished for Tucker Carlson”

“The truth is, we really have got a record to be proud of,” he lied. “Vaccinated the nation, transformed the economy, earned historic victories in the midterm results…”
“But the job isn’t finished,” he rambled on. “I mean, it is finished for Tucker Carlson.”
The crowd groaned in demonstrable shock at the cheap shot.
“What are you wooing about?” Biden said. “Don’t you think that was reasonable? Give me a break.”
Carlson, one of the few critics of the Biden regime in primetime television, frequently highlighted the White House’s attacks on freedom of the press.
But tonight, the press corpse applauded obeisantly a president whose regime has attacked independent journalists, colluded with Big Tech to suppress accurate reporting on topics ranging from Hunter Biden to Covid to the U.S. proxy war in Europe, and whose campaign and presidency engaged in Election Interference.
Instead of booing the president’s joke about a journalist who truly spoke ‘truth to power,’ the press applauded like sycophantic sheep. Disgraceful.
The White House press also guffawed over their absurd double standards covering Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
Donald Trump got raided by the FBI over classified documents securely stored at Mar-a-Lago while Joe Biden gets to have a laugh with our “media” about his decades of carelessly mishandling them.

Unpresidential Biden aimed several sharp jab at several Republicans, such as Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.), Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) in his rambling and garbled speech.
Biden claims Marjorie Taylor Greene is the one that is “disoriented and confused.”
The guy who can't find his way off of stages and shakes hands with invisible men shouldn't be talking about people being “disoriented and confused.” pic.twitter.com/LZ7a3OYBOb

And to cap the evening off, the White House Correspondents Association gave an award to the Washington Post’s Matt Viser for writing a cheerleading glow-up of Joe Biden, one of the most disastrous presidents in recent U.S. history.
This is a 2024 campaign ad. Just this. Look at them all. https://t.co/BbaztdrdH5

Viser got the award for how he “captured the spirit of Joe Biden, particularly with stories about the President’s brother and how his Catholic faith influenced his strategic vision of the office.”
Nothing about Biden family corruption. Or his unconstitutional proxy war. Or his presidency being compromised by China. Or his botched Afghan War withdrawal. Or his Covid response policy failures, including the baseless mandates. Or his border crisis leading to human trafficking and the exacerbation of the fentanyl epidemic.
Instead, the WHCA gave an award to a “journalist” who lionized a decrepit, half-wit, bungling, compromised, failed president whose policies are fostering crises while weaponizing the U.S. government against his political enemies.
Imagine if the WHCA had given an award to a Trump acolyte during the former president’s time in office. You can’t. Because that would also present journalistic issues and call into question whether the press has been captured.
There is no need to question such an assumption that the White House press corps has been co-opted by the Democratic Party. Because that was on full display beyond a shadow of a doubt at the White House Correspondents Dinner last night.
