No. Such a powerful word isn’t it? “No” can put so many questions to rest. ‘No” is what President Biden said when asked if he would leave the Presidential race. “No.” That’s our fighter. That’s our Joe.

“No.” No is a Mack truck that can come at one with almost otherworldly power. “No” was the word Donald Trump used. It was a straightforward word with ever-lasting ramifications. The question was: Are you ever wrong about anything? Have you ever been wrong about anything?

No. THAT ANSWER ALONE SHOULD HAVE BEEN DISQUALIFYING. That one word—that fire-engine red firecracker of a word in all its arrogance, no—sums up Trump’s whole character.

Again and again and bloody again, Trump has disqualified himself. But nobody should have EVER counted President Biden out. He is a scrappy fighter, and he always will be. And he would never answer that question with the word: “No.”

Biden is humble. He admits he’s wrong. He is at his best when he has to fight. Still, my blood churns with anger at what some of these people are doing to him. Did you watch the interview on ABC?

I did. I watched and listened. I listened, and I wondered—what ways will the mainstream media try to pick on him next?

President Biden is correct about the polls. Think about it.

“Red wave, red wave, red wave.”

According to the pollsters, everything was coming up red – in the midterms.

Red sand on an angry beach—except that isn’t what happened now, is it? The pollsters were wrong.

That does not mean President Biden is ahead by 10 points. I want us to look not at the black and white, but at the delicate shades of gray.

That is the root cause of the problem. At least, it is for the media.

Perfect or ruined. . Miles ahead or miles behind.

Virtually everything they write or say is black and white, not even a hint of subtlety, of shades of gray. That is why the media and the pollsters are continuously wrong. They go to extremes for clicks and ratings.

It KEEPS happening, and yet, just like Trump, with his yawning psychosis, just like Trump, the media and the pundits, when challenged, when called out, still keep saying “no.” No, we’re not wrong. So they go on and on, never taking responsibility, doomed to wallow in their fake arrogance, doomed to always, like Donald Trump, to keep on saying “no.”Donate to Palmer Report
