at Joe Biden’s presidential:

    President Joe Biden once claimed that he had been arrested at the age of 21 for trespassing in the Capitol, describing a crime that is similar to those for which some participants in the January 6 Capitol riot currently face federal charges. Fox News reported Sunday: In a 2007 appearance on David Letterman, then-Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., claimed he was arrested at the U.S. Capitol when he was 21 years old. … Recounting the details of the arrest – which apparently happened on a Saturday – Biden said had been visiting some friends at Georgetown University, and decided to visit Washington because he “was fascinated with the Senate.” “In those days, no guards stopping you everywhere. And they just got out of session. I walked in the back, all of the sudden I found myself in the chamber. I was stunned. I walked up, sat down in the presiding officer’s...

    President-elect Joe Biden mispronounced Democratic Senate hopeful John Ossoff's name during an election event Tuesday ahead of the crucial runoff races.  "Honk for your next United States Senator Jon Orsoff!"

    President Donald Trump wished Americans a 'Happy Thanksgiving' while making a veiled swipe at his former Defense Secretary James Mattis at the annual turkey pardoning ceremony on Tuesday.  'We send our love to every member of the armed forces and the law enforcement heroes risking their lives to keep America safe, to keep America great - and as I say America First, we shouldn't go away from that, America First,' Trump told a crowd of about 100 in the White House Rose Garden.  This time around, most of attendees were wearing masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19. First lady Melania Trump stood next to her husband, while Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner and their three children - Arabella, Joseph and Theodore - were in attendance.   Earlier in the morning, Trump had lashed out at Mattis for saying that the incoming Biden-Harris administration should do away with Trump's 'America First' policies. ...
    Joe Biden won the White House race against Donald Trump, US media reported on Saturday, a victory marking a historic turning point for America and the world, after four years of rupture under the Republican president. After four days of suspense, the Democratic candidate and former vice-president of Barack Obama was given the winner with at least 273 voters, thanks to a success in the key state of Pennsylvania, according to major American media including . and the New York Times. He will become the 46th President of the United States. For the first time in their history, the country will have a vice president, Kamala Harris, 56, who will also be the first black person to hold the office.

    Washington [US], November 3: Musician Lady Gaga on Monday night (local time) delivered a passionate speech at the Democratic party’s presidential candidate Joe Biden’s final campaign event at Pennsylvania. According to Variety, the 34-year-old musician complimented her speech along with a power-packed performance of her songs ‘Shallow,’ and ‘You and I.’ Pennsylvania is the home state of Biden.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden nearly stumbled at the end of his final rally of the 2020 campaign in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Monday evening, as his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, startled him by trying to steer him toward the podium. Biden finished his speech and wandered over to stage left, waving to the few supporters who were there at the drive-in event. His wife approached him from behind and put a hand on his back. That startled him and he appeared to lose his balance momentarily. Once back safely in the center of the stage, behind the podium, Biden greeted his grandchildren and waved to the crowd with his wife. He then tried to put his mask — his signature accessory — back on, but struggled to do so, leaving it dangling. Biden then leaned into the microphone at the podium and tried to speak again, but the music played...

    Democratic nominee Joe Biden released a “closing message” one week ahead of Election Day in which he characterizes the presidential contest as an “opportunity to leave the dark angry politics of the past four years behind us.” In the video titled “Rising,” Biden restates a common campaign slogan that this election is a “battle for the soul of the nation.” "I believe that even more deeply today. Who we are what we stand for, maybe most importantly, who we are going to be. It's all at stake," Biden said. His address plays over clips of families and images taken on the campaign trail.“This is our opportunity to leave the dark angry politics of the past four years behind us,” the former vice president said. “To choose hope over fear, unity over division, science over fiction. I believe it's time to unite the country to come together as a nation but I can't do it...
    Editor's Note: This article is adapted from Tucker Carlson's opening commentary on the Oct. 23, 2020 edition of "Tucker Carlson Tonight." We learned a lot over the course of Thursday night's second and final presidential debate. We learned that self-control pays off. Donald Trump pulled back a little bit on stage and he was never better than he was Thursday night.  At the same time, we learned that if you really want to wreck Joe Biden, let him talk without a script for two minutes at his age. We also learned something that we already knew: Donald Trump drives a certain sort of person completely insane. He could recite the words from the "Happy Birthday" song and these people would hear machine gun fire. These are highly neurotic individuals; you get the sense many of them have severe allergies and digestive problems. For example, at one point during the debate, the president tried to explain why the human smuggling...
    The two presidential candidates gave contrasting messages about the coronavirus during the final presidential debate on Thursday, Trump 2020 campaign senior adviser Lara Trump highlighted. “At the onset of this, we saw that the predictions were that we could see upwards of 2 million deaths," Trump told “America’s Newsroom” on Friday. "Now, one death is too many. Our hearts go out to everyone who has had to deal with this. Now the president took on a novel coronavirus. Something we had never seen before anywhere in the world,” she added. “This was historic, what this president did. Not only with testing, with ventilators, partnering with the private sector, paycheck protection program, now we are on the precipice of a vaccine in record time, so, when that happens, I think we’re going to see a huge change across the country,” Trump said. Trump added, “And the president has said that that is probably weeks away."...
    President Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden clashed over alleged foreign financial entanglements in the final presidential debate on Thursday, with Trump telling Biden "you owe an explanation to the American people" about son Hunter Biden's past business dealings as the former vice president empathetically denied anything "unethical" took place. The debate exchange followed the recent news reports of past communications between Joe Biden's son, Hunter, and his business partners that have raised questions about what Joe Biden knew about these foreign business dealings. Biden's campaign has denied involvement or making money off these dealings, but the president pressed his rival over the reports during the debate.  "All of the emails ... the horrible emails of the kind of money that you were raking in, you and your family. And Joe, you were vice president when some of this was happening. And it should've never happened," Trump said. "I think you owe an...
    President Trump's mic appeared to be briefly cut off while he was explaining his healthcare plan. After Trump said "we're going to do even better" when finalizing his answer, his mic went quiet, and moderator Kristen Welker of NBC turned the question over to Democratic nominee Joe Biden. Biden's mic, an hour into the debate, had yet to be cut. The Commission on Presidential Debates announced on Monday, three days before the final debate in Nashville, Tennessee, that the event would have the microphone for one contender cut off during the other debater's opening two-minute response to each question. The rules change came after the first debate featured in a chaotic night of cross talk and constant interruptions by the candidates.

    Thursday night’s final debate between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden is certain to be a historic event just 12 days before Election Day and the culmination of the unforgettable campaign of 2020. The debate might also go down in history as the last one organized by the existing Commission on Presidential Debates. This year the commission has exposed itself as unfair, biased, and inept. It’s time has passed. The three presidential debates and a single vice presidential debate normally scheduled are supposed to be the premiere primetime events in which the American people can see the candidates up close and personal. But this year it looks like the debate commission is working to give Joe Biden the advantage. HANNITY AGAIN URGES BIDEN TO COME OUT OF HIDING: 'JUST COME OUTSIDE. WE'D BE HAPPY TO HEAR FROM YOU' Whether it’s a canceled debate, muted microphones, or changed topics,...
    Anchor Bret Baier said Monday on Fox News Channel’s “The Daily Briefing” that presidential debate moderator NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker will not ask about Hunter Biden’s emails. Therefore, it will be up to President Donald Trump. Perino said, “There’s this other issue that Peter Doocy just mention that Joe Biden hasn’t responded to questions about the emails that were found on laptops purported to be Hunter Biden’s. Now it doesn’t seem like Joe Biden will be taking any questions before the debate this Thursday. So how do you think this will play out? Can they starve this story to death?” Baier said, “Listen, it requires other news organizations to cover it, and that really hasn’t been picked up outside of a few.” Perino said, “The CBS News reporter was the one that asked him and got that kind of blow-off from Joe Biden the other night.” Baier said, “Yeah, but I don’t know if CBS has done an in-depth look at the...
    Madison Summers October 19, 2020 0 Comments President Donald Trump may not interrupt Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden as much during the upcoming presidential debate as much as the president did during their first debate. Fox News’ Chris Wallace noted during Sunday’s interview on Fox News with Trump campaign senior adviser Jason Miller that Chris Christie — one of the president’s debate advisers — previously said Trump came in “too hot” to the debate. Trump and Biden repeatedly clashed during the first presidential debate, which has lead to speculation on how the next and last debate scheduled for Thursday will go. As Wallace noted that Trump interrupted Biden roughly 145 times in the 90 minutes of the debate, the Fox News anchor asked, “Does he plan to be as disruptive in the debate this week as he was then… will we see more of the same or is he...
    President Trump on Friday hit Joe Biden for getting off easy at his town hall the night before — when he wasn’t asked a single question about The Post’s bombshell exclusive on his son’s overseas business dealings. “Sleepy Joe Biden had a very bad showing last night, despite the fact that @GStephanopoulos didn’t ask him any questions on his being a ‘corrupt politician,’” Trump tweeted . “Big Tech & Lamestream Media are working hard to hide this corruption!!!” Biden made his first televised interview since The Post published a slew of emails from Hunter Biden’s alleged laptop — one of which indicating that the son arranged a meeting between his father and a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm. But The Post’s exposé didn’t come up once during the Democratic presidential candidate’s 90-minute ABC News town hall Thursday night. Major networks have also failed to mention the report,...
    Joe Biden was not asked a single question about The Post’s bombshell exposé on son Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings during his 90-minute ABC News town hall on Thursday evening. Moderator George Stephanopoulos and undecided voters asked the Democratic nominee about everything from mandating a COVID-19 vaccine to how he’d handle a defeat on Nov. 3, but no one pressed Biden on newly unearthed emails which showed Hunter Biden selling access to his then-vice president dad. It was Biden’s first televised interview since The Post made public a tranche of documents from a laptop which allegedly belonged to Biden’s oft-troubled son. Among the emails on the hard drive was one which indicated Hunter Biden introduced his father to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm who was at the time under investigation before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine to fire that prosecutor a year later. Instead,...
    Washington — Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris repeatedly dodged questions Wednesday on whether she and Joe Biden support adding more seats to the high court, a proposal that has gained traction among progressives in the wake of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death last month. During the sole vice presidential debate, Vice President Mike Pence pressed Harris numerous times to clarify whether she and her running mate would move to expand the number of Supreme Court seats from nine if they win the election in November and if Judge Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed to fill the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat. If Barrett, a federal appeals court judge, joins the Supreme Court, it would widen its conservative majority to 6-3. Some Democrats have advocated for the concept known as court packing to dilute the power of the conservative justices and restore balance to the high court. Get Breaking...
    Two “undecided” voters who appeared on an NBC News town hall with Joe Biden that has been described as an “infomercial” for the Democratic nominee had earlier voiced their support for the former vice president on MSNBC, according to a report. Peter Gonzalez and Ismael Llano posed questions to the Democratic presidential nominee at the town hall Monday in Miami as part of an “audience of undecided Florida voters.” Both Gonzalez and Llano appeared on MSNBC in August to show their support for Biden, the Washington Free Beacon reported on Tuesday. “If we get four more years of Trump, good luck, and good luck with the future attracting younger voters,” Gonzalez said on MSNBC. He and Llano were identified as “voting for Biden.” “Something that Joe Biden said during his speech that resonated with me was what defines America is a possibility,” Llano said in the same broadcast.

    Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) said on Tuesday’s broadcast of CBS’s “The Late Show” that President Donald Trump’s presidential debate performance “was embarrassing to our country.” Booker said, “It was painful. I think that if you’re not hurting or worried after what we just watched, maybe you tuned in to the wrong thing. I mean, Donald Trump came with this obesity of aggression and just like a pugnacious posturing that was just not who we want to represent us. It’s not representing the spirit of the heart of this country. And I respect a lot of what Joe Biden was trying to say and do during that election. He came far more presidential, frankly. But Donald Trump– to see a Fox News commentator have to try to constantly wrestle with the president of the United States just so Joe Biden would have time to speak. It was embarrassing to our country. And...
    After Tuesday's presidential debate, which will be remembered as a night of chaos, Democrats are seeking potential rule changes, while the media floated the possibility of Joe Biden skipping the next two debates. What are the details?Despite Biden's campaign pledging the former vice president would participate in each of the three scheduled debates, Democrats are blaming Trump for Tuesday's chaos — and are seeking potential rule changes to future debates, Politico reported. Simon Rosenberg, a former senior adviser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, told Politico the Commission on Presidential Debates needs to rein in the president prior to the next debates. "Of course, Biden and Harris should keep debating. But they should work to make sure Trump can't repeat his performance tonight," Rosenberg said. "Moderators should have the ability to cut off his mic and split screens should be limited. Let them talk to the American people without the...
    Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden broke with Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) coalition of progressives during the first presidential debate on Tuesday night. On multiple policy issues, Biden broke with the Sanders-wing of the Democrat Party. Despite calling the Green New Deal a “crucial framework” in his global warming plan, Biden announced that he no longer supports the Green New Deal at the debate. “No I don’t support the Green New Deal,” Biden said. Joe Biden does not support the Green New Deal. His words, not ours. #debates2020 pic.twitter.com/tmc9Y0xzjQ — ForAmerica (@ForAmerica) September 30, 2020 On healthcare, Biden seemingly took a veiled shot at Medicare for All, a fixture of progressive Democrats’ agenda during the Democrat presidential primary.

    CLAIM: Both moderator Chris Wallace and Democrat nominee Joe Biden claimed that President Trump said in response to riots in Charlottesville in 2017 that neo-Nazis were “very fine people.” VERDICT: FALSE. Biden has repeated this hoax since the beginning of his campaign. Wallace knows better. As Breitbart News has noted in fact check after fact check: President Trump repeatedly condemned the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville in August 2017 — “totally.” Moreover, the neo-Nazis were not the only violent group in Charlottesville. The “clash” was not with those “standing against” hate peacefully, but with violent, black-clad Antifa extremists. As to “very fine people,” Trump had been referring to peaceful protests both for and against the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. He completely condemned the extremists — as the timeline and transcript confirm: Aug. 12, 2017: Trump condemned “violence “on many sides” in Charlottesville, after neo-Nazi and Antifa clashes...
    Former Vice President Joe Biden said “Insh’Allah” during the first presidential debate — a popular Arabic expression meaning “God willing.” Biden interjected when President Donald Trump was talking about his taxes. He promised to release his 2016 tax return, once an ongoing audit by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) had ended. (A recent New York Times article about Trump’s taxes confirmed that he has, in fact, been under a years-long audit.) As Trump was pressed by moderator Chris Wallace to say when he would release his taxes, Biden interrupted: “When? Insh’Allah?” He chuckled at his own joke. “Insh’Allah” does not refer specifically to a time in the future. It is more of an expression of hope that something anticipated will happen. In an article for Arab News in 2015, Ibrahim Al-Ammar wrote that people should not “fear” the phrase: It’s part of every Muslim’s daily vocabulary, as we are taught by...
    Democrats may be worried about Joe Biden’s performance at the first presidential debate Tuesday night, but former Democratic National Committee deputy press secretary Jose Aristimuno told “Outnumbered” his frequent gaffes are not a concern. “The Republicans and Trump are obsessed with the mental health of Joe Biden,” he explained to host Harris Faulkner. “He's going to commit a gaffe, he's going to do something crazy… It’s disrespectful. He's not going to do that. He's going to look more presidential as ever.” If anyone should be worried, it’s President Trump, Aristimuno explained, given the fact that there were more than 200,000 coronavirus-related deaths under his presidency. FIRST PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE: WHAT TO WATCH FOR AT THE TRUMP VS.

    President Trump “needs to smoke Joe Biden out” on a host of policy positions at the first presidential debate, said Fox News contributor Ari Fleischer on Tuesday. Fleischer told “America’s Newsroom” the president needs to "make [Biden] state his liberal policies" on six issues. The former White House press secretary said, "One, President Trump should say, 'I will veto any legislation to pack the Supreme Court, will you do that, Joe?' 'I oppose efforts to cut police funding. New York cut a billion dollars, I oppose it. Joe, where are you?'"

    (CBS4) – Political pundits are calling it the “Super Bowl of politics.” President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden go head-to-head Tuesday night in their first debate. With millions of voters watching the 90 minute live televised event, CBS4 analysts agree it’s pivotal, but they disagree on who is under the greatest pressure. (credit: CBS) “I think that Trump has more pressure on him because he’s behind,” said Republican analyst Dick Wadhams. Democratic analyst Mike Dino disagrees. “I do think people are anxious to see how Joe Biden performs,” Dino said. Dino said Biden needs to prove he’s not “Sleepy Joe” as the President has branded him. “He probably has to find a way to engage. He can’t just let the President throw stuff at him that’s not factual, which we know will happen, that tried to demean the vice president, which tried to undercut his mental acuity,”...
    Vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris will join Democratic candidate Joe Biden Friday to pay their respects to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she becomes the first woman and first Jewish person to lie in state at the US Capitol, the campaign said. Both members of the presidential ticket will be present at an invitation-only ceremony in Statuary Hall, where one of the late justice’s favorite opera singers, Denyce Graves, will perform. Biden’s wife, Dr. Jill Biden, is also expected to attend. The day will certainly be a busier one for the former vice president than Thursday, when he called a lid at 9 a.m., meaning he had finished holding public events for the day, and would spend the day hunkered down in the Wilmington, Delaware, home where he has been for much of the coronavirus pandemic.

    President Trump will not only be battling Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden during the presidential debates but also the liberal media, former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Thursday. Sanders, a Fox News contributor, told “America’s Newsroom” that Trump “isn't just up against Joe Biden, unfortunately he is up against the liberal media who want Joe Biden to do well in these debates.” She went on to say that if Biden “doesn't completely blow it” she thinks the liberal media “will declare him the winner no matter how good Donald Trump does on that stage.” “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace was selected to moderate the first presidential debate scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 29, at Case Western University and the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio.

    President Trump is expecting Democratic nominee Joe Biden “to do great” when they square off in the first presidential debate next Tuesday. Speaking to “Fox & Friends” Monday morning, the commander-in-chief made the pronouncement after being asked what his thoughts were going into next week, when the two will meet face-to-face for the first time since the 45th president’s inauguration in January 2017. “I think he’s a professional. I don’t know if he’s all there, but I think he’s a professional,” Trump remarked, adding, “I have to assume that he’s a professional and that he can debate.” “I don’t understand what’s going on. He doesn’t seem to be answering questions and he can’t answer questions and much worse, a little while ago when he was on the stage with the Democrats, he couldn’t do well,” he continued.

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Tuesday called President Trump "foolish" for his comments on the candidate's mental acuity and unfounded claims suggesting that Biden is taking performance-enhancing drugs, as some pundits are warning that Trump might be lowering expectations for his opponent in the first debate happening later this month. "I'm looking forward to the debate and he's a fool," Biden said in an interview with WFLA 8. "The comments are just foolish. Get ready, Mr. President, here I come." Biden laughed when the WFLA 8 reporter first started asking the question, referencing allegations Trump has made that Biden is "mentally shot" which he re-upped in an interview with "Fox & Friends" earlier on Tuesday.

    The first presidential debate, “will be people’s first real look at who Joe Biden at the age of 77 is,” former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer told “Outnumbered Overtime” on Tuesday. Fleischer made the comment reacting to a Wall Street Journal column written by Gerald Seib titled, “The Campaign’s Key Half-Hour? The Start of the First Debate.” Seib wrote on Monday that the Democratic presidential nominee “will get his best chance to show he is up to the job in the first 30 minutes of the Sept. 29 debate.” “That is the crucial period when Joe Biden will have his best chance to show he’s up to the job, and give wavering voters who don’t really like President Trump a feeling that it’s safe to move away from him and toward the Democrats,” he continued. The debate is slated to take place in Cleveland, Ohio, and will be...

    Getty 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden. During his speech in Kenosha, Wisconsin on September 3, former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden said that what drew him from his job as a professor back into politics was the sight of torch-holding, anti-Semites marching in Charlottesville. “I had not planned on running for anything again after my son had died. And I was a professor in college and running another program at the college until I saw those people coming out of Charlottesville,” Biden said. His statement – that he was a professor in college – left many wondering when — or even if — Biden was ever a professor.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday said Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden should not debate President Trump before Election Day. “I don’t think that there should be any debates,” Pelosi volunteered at the end of a press briefing. Pelosi (D-Calif.) said she wanted debates scrapped to not “legitimize a conversation with [Trump]” because he lacks “any association with truth.” She also said Biden should deny the president an opportunity to “act in a way that is beneath the dignity of the presidency.” “I thought what he did in 2016 was disgraceful, stalking Hillary Clinton like that. I was disappointed that the press didn’t say, ‘Go back to your station’,” Pelosi said. The leading Democrat’s call for Biden to to sit out the debates comes after the former vice president’s campaign refused Trump’s request for more than three debates. Trump senses an opportunity against Biden after using debating forums to crush...

In the joint appearance with presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden the day after he announced that Harris was his running mate, the California senator compared the Obama-Biden administration's response to the Ebola virus outbreak to Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic. "Barack Obama and Joe Biden did their job. Only two people in the United States died. Two," she said. "Compare that to the moment we find ourselves now. When other countries are following the science, Trump pushed miracle cures he saw on Fox News." The comment was an apparent reference to hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malarial drug that Trump and some Fox News hosts touted as a promising treatment to the COVID-19 virus. However, the Food and Drug Administration cautions against using it as a COVID-19 treatment outside...

    Liberals and other critics of President Donald Trump lashed out at the presumptive Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, and his campaign after a report claimed that a member of his vice presidential search committee issued a complaint against Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.). Former Sen. Chris Dodd complained that Harris was too dismissive when she was questioned about the attacks she made on Biden during the Democratic presidential debates, according to a Politico report. "She laughed and said, 'that's politics.' She had no remorse," Dodd reportedly said to a Biden donor who spoke to Politico. "Dodd felt it was a gimmick, that it was cheap," the donor added. A derailed campaign for VP Harris, 55, has been widely considered a favorite among the pool of Democrat politicians who are being vetted as a potential vice presidential choice.

John Kasich is expected to speak on behalf of presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden this August at the Democratic National Convention, according to the Associated Press. Kasich is one of many high level Republicans expected to support Biden, an anonymous source “with direct knowledge of the plans” told the AP. Kasich ran for the Republican nomination back in 2016 against President Donald Trump, and has since been a vocal critic of the White House, even going as far as to call for Trump’s impeachment last year. The only primary state he won was Ohio, where he served as governor from 2011 to 2019 and was a Congressional representative from 1983–2001.
