In this episode we’ll reflect on Joe Biden’s first month as president; he hasn’t sent out $2000 checks, he’s already backing down on the $15 minimum wage increase, his Secretary of State is seemingly sabotaging peace talks with Iran, he’s nominated corrupt cabinet officials and he’s now completely abandoned his promise to halt deportations for his first 100 days in office. He’s been a failure by every metric with the exception of his handling of COVID-19. We’ll also discuss Newsmax’s attack on Joe Biden’s dog (seriously), Fox News’ wall-to-wall coverage of The Muppets supposedly getting “canceled” by the woke mob, Ben Shapiro’s outrage over a cartoon, Meghan McCain’s entitlement, and much more. We’ll close the show by talking to 2022 congressional candidate Isiah James about his rematch against Yvette Clarke.
