Former Trump administration official Richard Grenell said Director of the United States Domestic Policy Council Susan Rice is pulling the strings behind the scenes when it comes to foreign policy while President Joe Biden has been absent.
“President Susan Rice is doing a great job,” Grenell told “The Count” on Newsmax TV Saturday. “She’s literally behind the scenes just pulling all the strings and nobody’s paying attention. It’s a joke that we think that she’s not running foreign policy, we know she is.”
Grenell, the former acting Director of National Intelligence, added that Rice could not be confirmed by the Senate or gather enough votes to be Secretary of State so she is now running foreign policy for Biden in the White House.
“They wanted her to be Secretary of State, but she didn’t have the votes last time or this time,” Grenell said. “She almost became vice president.”
Grenell has previously described Rice as Biden’s “shadow president.”
“She will be the shadow president,” Grenell said in Jan. “We have a president-elect in Joe Biden who clearly is not the Joe Biden of 10 years ago. He’s not even the Joe Biden of five years ago when it comes to policy issues.
Grenell also perviously said that Rice is “extremely excited that vice president Harris is preoccupied in the Senate,” permitting Rice to further gain power and influence in the Biden administration.
“If we don’t get more kind of media attention and scrutiny on what Susan Rice is doing, I think we’re really doing a disservice to the American people,” Grenell said Saturday. “You can see that Joe Biden doesn’t have a command of the foreign policy issues, doesn’t have a command of even calling world leaders.”

Uvalde, TX Mayor Calls Beto O’Rourke a ‘Sick Son of a B****’ After he Heckled Gov. Abbott’s Presser
The vile act of politicizing horrific tragedies such as the Uvalde, Texas elementary school massacre, has been in full force. Democrat Beto O’Rourke “was escorted out of Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s press conference Wednesday after he showed up and heckled the governor in the middle of an update on the elementary school massacre in Uvalde” reports The Blaze.
Beto is a former congressman from El Paso, Texas as well as a Democratic presidential nominee briefly for the 2020 elections. During his time, he campaigned hard on his support for a mandatory gun buyback scheme.
The Blaze reported on Beto’s behavior at Abbott’s press conference:
As Abbott was finishing his remarks to reporters, O’Rourke, the Democratic candidate for governor, stood up and began speaking about the need for gun control legislation.
“Excuse me,” Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said as O’Rourke ignored him and went on about how “the time has come to put a stop” to gun violence. O’Rourke did not have a microphone, and most of his comments were inaudible.
“Sit down!” shouted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as the Democrat kept speaking.
“You’re out of line and an embarrassment!” Patrick told O’Rourke, while others began raising their voices.
“You are doing nothing!” O’Rourke yelled at Abbott as police officers began to march him out of the room.
“You need to get his a** out of here, this isn’t the place to talk this over,” said Uvalde Mayor Don Mclaughlin, calling O’Rourke a “sick son of a b****.”
