Don't we care because as leaders they should be able to communicate with those who they want to lead? Trump couldn't explain much of anything and Biden is managed so closely that one has to wonder who is pulling the strings. Of course one might assume that much of this is on purpose. Clear messaging drives better accountability. Accountability used to stand for something but today a shoulder shrug seems to suffice. 

get off it.  That is such a bs conservative talking point it's not even funny.  This guy has spent decades in government, speaking, debating, building relationships (within both parties).  He is quite obviously the man in charge and to suggest otherwise just makes you look like a conservative sycophant

Do tell us that accountability that used to stand for something.  One party has a significant percentage of their members, including their leader, who still won't admit that their guy lost in November 2020.  Oh, but Biden is a problem.  OK bud.

 

 

EDIT:  Hell, their guy wouldn't even admit that he lost the popular vote in 2016.  He even played the fraud card when he lost Iowa to Cruz in the primaries.  So much for that accountability that used to stand for something from 4 - 5 years ago.

That’s all well and good but my point here is that the same people who call Trump the greatest POTUS ever say Biden is unfit for office because of his public speaking abilities. Do we not see the hypocrisy here?

Well that was kind of my point. Why do we suddenly care about a president’s public speaking abilities? Biden is a relatively poor public speaker. Trump was terrible. Why do we suddenly care about this?

Because a certain homophobic Youtube enthusiast (and Trump fan) insists on posting edited and misleading videos, in an attempt to portray Biden as mentally deficient.

 

Then others (quite accurately) point out that "deficient" would be Trump's middle name if he could spell it....

And you know this how?

 

Because Tucker and Hannity told you...? :rolleyes:

Nice to see that the DOJ has managed to recover much of the ransom money paid out in the Colonial Pipeline hack:

 

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/07/us/politics/justice-department-colonial-pipeline-ransom.html

 

Quote

The Justice Department said on Monday that it had recovered much of the ransom paid to hackers last month who shut down the computer systems of Colonial Pipeline, a critical pipeline operator.

Colonial had paid a ransom worth roughly $4.4 million in Bitcoin to the Russian hacking group DarkSide after it used ransomware, a form of malicious software, to hold up the company’s business networks in May. That payment cleared the way for Colonial to resume pumping fuel through its pipeline, which stretches from Texas to New Jersey and accounts for nearly half of all transport fuels that flow up the East Coast.

The seizure on Monday marked a first-of-its-kind effort by a new Justice Department task force to hijack a cybercriminal group’s profits through a hack of its Bitcoin wallet. The Justice Department said that it had seized 63.7 Bitcoins, currently valued at about $2.3 million. (The value of a Bitcoin has dropped over the past month.)

“Earlier today, the Department of Justice has found and recaptured the majority of the ransom Colonial paid to the DarkSide network,” the deputy attorney general, Lisa O. Monaco, said at a news conference Monday.

This is the kind of thing that can be accomplished when you put qualified professionals in high level cabinet positions, rather than family and friends.....

Stormy can provide lot of good forensic evidence, she is an expert on bodily fluids.

Not to worry Matt....I hear KCT is hiring..... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korean_Central_Television

But with Trump, he dominated twitter but it was Mitch McConnell creating all of the actual legislation. Trump likely never read a word of any bill he signed. So as far as pulling the strings goes, not sure how it could be much worse than that.

it's the one thing that Trump supporters can't seem to grasp....

 

Trump loves the trappings of the presidency....giving speeches....meeting world leaders....issuing pardons.....presenting medals....being on the news 24/7....

 

The actual work of being president, he'd just rather hand off to an underling like Moscow Mitch or Jared.

Bipartisan Senate report finds sweeping failures surrounding January 6 attack on Capitol

In other news, grass is green and bears do indeed sh*t in the woods....

 

SMH at how the Dems had to omit the word "insurrection" and any reference to Trump at all, in order to have the GQP involved in the report.

Not only that, but it's the dumbest metaphor around...

Anyone who creates an account just to “expose” Hunter Biden should be last person talking about anyone living rent free in anyone’s head…

The irony is incredible. The key detail you’re missing in your post is that this isn’t a single account created. This is the same guy creating accounts over and over to say the same crap about “Trump rent free”.

His Dad who is president claimed it was a Russian set up and Facebook and Twitter blocked the story. So ya he's a piece of trash no doubt and his father lied for him and social media blocked the story. I repeat you guys are still focused on Trump lol.

Haha burn!

Well judging by this thread you post multiple times a day on the former president of the United States so what does he charge you? I'm guessing a couple of you guy's are American?

You sure? Would you bet on that?

I love Richie Valons bro!

Then at least spell his &^@#ing name right.
