Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden came out of the basement Thursday night to target President Donald Trump and his acceptance speech. Biden, along with his Democratic supporters, said the event held by Trump failed to abide by the COVID-19 recommendations to mitigate the spread of the virus.
What was fascinating is that these same Democratic liberals supported and approved the March On Washington Friday, which was expected to have roughly 50,000 people in attendance. Thousands of marchers gathered like sardines in a can around the Lincoln Memorial, streets were closed and for the most part people were everywhere and touching everything.
One DHS official, who I have known for some time and who is frustrated with the double-standard, told me on background, Biden and the Democrats see COVID-19 as a “woke virus that only attacks in churches, schools, and republican gatherings.”
“It probably has a tiny virus looking man bun if you analyze it with a powerful microscope,” the official added jokingly.
I tend to agree with the assessment, man bun and all.
Why? Because after locking us and our families down for months, the National Park Service told The Daily Caller Thursday that it wouldn’t be enforcing the wearing of masks or social distancing in the city during the protests.
I should know that was the case because I was there most of the day with my staff writer and producer Jennie Taer. In fact, the city is not requiring a quarantine mandate for protestors arriving from outside the city in areas that have seen a resurgence. D.C. officials had been enforcing this law mandate previously.
So when Biden described Trump’s the address as a “super spreader event” you have to question if they think we’re all idiots. I mean don’t these Democrats think for one second we’d be asking why one set of rules for some and not others?
“Mr. President, Americans are canceling weddings and holding funerals without family,” said Biden. “They’re sacrificing so more Americans don’t have to die. But instead of leading by example, you hosted a super spreader event on the South Lawn.”

Rep. Patrick McHenry Announces Retirement, Adding to Congressional Exodus
Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., has declared that he will not seek re-election, becoming the latest in a growing list of lawmakers departing from Congress. McHenry, a close ally of former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, stated that he believes “there is a season for everything,” signaling the end of his tenure in the House. Having served since 2005, McHenry is the 37th member of Congress to announce they won’t seek re-election in 2024.
In a statement, McHenry reflected on the significance of the House of Representatives in the American political landscape, calling it the “center of our American republic.” He acknowledged the concerns about the future of the institution due to multiple departures but expressed confidence that new leaders would emerge and guide the House through its next phase.
The departure of McHenry and others comes against the backdrop of political shifts and challenges within the Republican Party. The GOP has faced setbacks in recent elections, including fallout from the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Internal strife and disagreements, exemplified by the rebellion against McCarthy, have characterized the party’s dynamics. The GOP’s approval rating stands at 30%, with a disapproval rating of 66%, reflecting the challenges and divisions within the party.
As McHenry steps aside, questions loom over the fate of open seats in the upcoming election. The nonpartisan Cook Political Report identifies five open House seats as potential Democrat pickup opportunities, while none are listed for the GOP. The departures raise concerns about the party’s unity and ability to navigate the evolving political landscape.
With a total of 20 departing Democratic legislators and 10 Republicans, the changing composition of Congress adds complexity to the political dynamics leading up to the 2024 elections. As McHenry emphasizes a hopeful view of the House’s future, the evolving political landscape will determine the impact of these departures on the balance of power in Congress.
