Joe Biden must be convinced he and his corrupt Democrats are now ensconced forever in power.
How else do we explain this "mask is off" maneuver, with Joe transforming from Mr. Nice Guy to Mr. Spiteful Jerk?
President Biden said on Friday that he would bar his predecessor, former President Donald J. Trump, from receiving the intelligence briefings traditionally conducted for former presidents, saying he could not be trusted because of his "erratic behavior" even before the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.
The move marked the first time that a former president had been cut out of the briefings, which are provided partly as a courtesy and partly for the moments when a sitting president reached out for advice. Currently the briefings are offered on a regular basis to former Presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama.Mr. Biden, speaking to Norah O'Donnell of CBS News, said Mr. Trump's behavior worried him "unrelated to the insurrection" that gave rise to the second impeachment of Mr. Trump.
"I just think that there is no need for him to have the intelligence briefings,'' Mr. Biden said. "What value is giving him an intelligence briefing? What impact does he have at all, other than the fact he might slip and say something?"
Trump was kind to the Biden transition once it happened, which shows a lot of ingratitude. Trump also hasn't spilled any secrets as it happens, and is notably devoted to the American flag. Yet somehow, Biden's decided to get the narrative out that Trump "can't be trusted" and is "erratic" despite his going four years in the presidency with zero breaches, zero wars, and a far safer America. Not only does Biden want to spite Trump; he's trying to make political hay from it, with a phony narrative to be repeated over and over.
