Size matters: Joe Biden scolds FNC reporter about crowds in Iowa

Westlake Legal Group 894be475-4a0d-496f-9b9e-8a6d5804c00a Size matters: Joe Biden scolds FNC reporter about crowds in Iowa The Blog Peter Doocy Joe Biden Iowa fnc crowds 2020 election 2020 Democrat primaries

Good old Joe Biden snapped at a Fox News Channel (FNC) reporter Tuesday in Iowa. He didn’t appreciate being corrected after he boasted of being the king of crowds when it comes to campaign events.

FNC’s Peter Doocy asked Biden, the Democrat front-runner if he was concerned that he isn’t drawing as big of crowds as are other candidates. It’s a fair question given that Biden was bragging that he draws the biggest of crowds.

“What I’m trying to do is go around from town to town and I’m drawing as big of crowds, or bigger than anybody,” Biden said in Iowa on Tuesday. “Have you seen anybody draw bigger crowds than me in this state?”

Well, yes, Doocy answered. He saw a bigger crowd in Des Moines for Senator Elizabeth Warren. Ouch. The exchange seemed innocent enough but political egos are large and a career politician possesses the largest of egos, generally speaking. Joe Biden isn’t an exception to that generalization. In politics, especially in the heat of a campaign, size matters. The optics of a large crowd listening to a candidate are essential. That’s why President Trump obsesses over crowd size. He knows the importance of crowd size. Biden was doing what he and other Democrats mock Trump for doing – claiming to garner the biggest crowds.

The fact that Doocy mentioned Elizabeth Warren as an example of a candidate drawing a larger crowd had to sting. She has risen to second place in both the polling average at Real Clear Politics and specifically in the Iowa polling. Biden is hanging in there for the time being but Warren has definitely captured the imagination of the media as a possible nominee if the Democrat primary voters are willing to go for a far-left candidate instead of settling on a comfortable choice, like Biden. The question is if voters think Warren could beat Trump in the general election because the top-selling point for Biden’s candidacy is that he is the only one that can beat Trump.

It is clear that Biden is growing concerned with the race. He’s trying desperately to put forth a macho-like presence – or as macho as a 76-year-old man can appear. As of right now, only Biden and Bernie Sanders can beat Trump according to the Politico/Morning Consult survey. The possibility that Sanders will be the nominee is slim to none. Warren has stepped over Bernie to rise to the second place in most polls. Primary voters are finding everyone’s angry older auntie more palatable than everyone’s angry grandpa.

About ten minutes after Doocy fact-checked Biden on the size of his crowds, Biden singled out the FNC reporter to specifically tell him that he’s “a big boy” and can handle Doocy. He went so far as to say that he knew that Doocy was “going to go after” him.

Biden told Doocy he was a “big boy” and could handle Doocy allegedly coming after him. “I mean, I know you, I know you’re going to go after me no matter what I’ve got. Yeah, you and it’s OK. Good. I’m a big boy. I can handle it,” he said.

Doocy has been covering all of the candidates in the comically large Democrat primary in Iowa for months. He delivers brief interviews on the ground with candidates that are normally not seen on FOX – not because they aren’t welcome on the cable news network but because they don’t sit for interviews with the network. They stick to CNN and MSNBC in hopes of interviews with softball questions. That is how the game goes. The telling thing with Biden is that he continues to single out the rising generation of reporters to aggressively make points with when he is challenged. Remember when he grabbed the arm of the young woman, a college student in Iowa, as she walked away from him in a crowd during the Iowa State Fair? He wanted to make his point to her on how pro-gay-marriage he is, though that wasn’t her question to him. Wait a minute, kid.

Some level of panic is setting in as the campaign goes on. Can we acknowledge how pathetic it was watching the clips of Jill Biden beg Democrats in New Hampshire to vote for her husband? She acknowledged that they probably didn’t particularly like him or his policies but they have to vote for him because he can beat Trump. Yikes! Dr. Jill admits it doesn’t matter what the candidate’s ideas are, the most important thing is beating Trump. If his own wife can’t give a glowing recommendation for Biden, who will?

Maybe it’s time for Biden to have one of those town halls on FOX with Bret Baier or Chris Wallace. He’s starting to look a bit entitled to the nomination. That didn’t work out so well for Hillary in the heartland.

Lightning strike in Poland, heavy thunderstorm blamed for several deaths, injuries in Tatra Mountains

Several people are dead and a dozen reported injured after lightning struck during a thunderstorm in Poland’s southern Tatra Mountains, officials said.

The TOPR rescue service said rescuers were dispatched to Giewont peak where the group of tourists, including children, had been struck by lightning.

The spokeswoman for Krakow’s provincial governor, Joanna Pazdzio, told The Associated Press at least three people, including a child, were killed in the lightning strike. Pazdzio told the AP she was told about the deaths by the leaders of the rescue operation that was taking place Thursday afternoon in the Tatras.

“Several people were hit by lightning [in] nearby Giewont summit. The situation is critical,” Jan Krzysztof, the chief of the Tatra Volunteer Search and Rescue, told Poland’s TVN24 news.

Rescuers said that some 20 people could have been affected when lighting struck the Giewont, a popular trekking destination, and other Tatra locations.

“Several people died on various locations,” Krzysztof told TVN24.

The spokeswoman for Krakow’s provincial governor, Joanna Pazdzio, told The Associated Press at least three people, including a child, were killed in the lightning strike.

Lightning typically strikes tall objects such as trees and skyscrapers because their tops are closer to the base of the storm cloud, according to The National Severe Storms Laboratory.

“However, this does not always mean tall objects will be struck. It all depends on where the charges accumulate,” according to the agency. “Lightning can strike the ground in an open field even if the tree line is close by.

Lightning, known as a “bolt from the blue,” can also strike from as far away as 25 miles from a thunderstorm cloud, even when there appear to be clear skies, according to the NSSL.

“They can be especially dangerous because they appear to come from clear blue sky,” the agency states.

Iran unveils new long-range missile system in latest show of military force

Iran unveiled a new long-range surface-to-air missile system Thursday in its latest demonstration of military power, just two months after its forces shot a U.S. Navy drone out of the sky over the Strait of Hormuz.

The Bavar-373, which Iran claims was built domestically, “can detect… targets or planes at more than 190 miles, lock in at about 155 miles, and destroy it at 124 miles,” Reuters quoted defense minister Amir Hatami as saying.

President Hassan Rouhani described the system as an improvement to the Russian S-300 system, which Moscow delivered to Iran in 2016.

“Now that our enemies do not accept logic, we cannot respond with logic,” Rouhani said in a televised speech Thursday.

“When the enemy launches a missile against us, we cannot give a speech and say: ‘Mr. Rocket, please do not hit our country and our innocent people,” he added. “Rocket-launching sir, if you can please hit a button and self-destroy the missile in the air.'”

On Wednesday, Iran’s state TV reported that the Bavar-373 is able to recognize up to 100 targets at the same time and confront them with six different weapons.

The unveiling of the system comes two months after a U.S. Navy drone was shot out of the sky over the Strait of Hormuz by Iran in what Pentagon officials described as an “unprovoked attack.”

Since 1992, Iran has developed a homegrown defense industry that has produced light and heavy weapons ranging from mortars and torpedoes to tanks and submarines.

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino still has a few weeks to serve on his tax evasion sentence, and it looks like his newlywed wife’s Instagram followers think she’s showing “The Situation” he has something to look forward to when he gets out of the big house.

Lauren Sorrentino posted a sexy snap on her Instagram page Wednesday wearing a tight white top and Daisy Dukes on a terrace at the Royalton Park Avenue in New York City.

“When you know you’re going for [pizza] after the [photo] shoot,” she captioned the pic.

Many of her more than 700,000 followers were quick to comment on the couple’s upcoming reconnection following their forced separation.

“Mike is going to have a Situation when he gets out. A really good one.”

“When is ur hubby coming home !! They need to make a honeymoon special for u guys !!”

“Can not wait to see Mike home, he wants at least 9 kids. Are you ready ????????”

“Beauty!!! Only a few more weeks hang in girl.”

Mike and Lauren Sorrentino wed in November 2018, shortly before he reported to the Otisville Correctional Facility in New York in January to do his time.

He is due to be released September 12.

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi gave an update on the reality star in April, telling E! News that her co-star is “having the time of his life” in prison.

“It’s like he’s in a senior home, he’s playing bingo, he’s helping people recover in jail,” Polizzi told the entertainment site. “We all talk to him through an email, so I talk to him like once a week. He’s in the gym a lot, so he’s probably gonna come out ripped.”

“You know, he’s not gonna be BDS anymore — Big Daddy Sitch — he’s gonna have his, probably, six-pack again. But he’s doing … he’s doing good in there,” she added.

“I want to put this behind me and move forward,” Sorrentino said in an Instagram live before heading to prison. “The comeback is always greater than the setback.”

Bethenny Frankel wrote her fans a personal note on Instagram following the news of her departure from the “Real Housewives of New York.”

“I am so grateful to you for sticking with me through everything,” she shared in a lengthy post on Wednesday night. “You started this journey with me in my tiny apartment in my late 30s, wondering what would happen to me. I was broke, single, had no family and no idea what the future held.”

BETHENNY FRANKEL HONORS LATE BOYFRIEND DENNIS SHIELDS A YEAR AFTER HIS DEATH

Fans have seen Frankel, 48, who started on the Bravo show when it premiered back in 2008, grow her Skinnygirl margarita business into an empire, endure ups and downs in her personal life, including welcoming her daughter, Brynn, and most recently losing her on-again-off-again boyfriend, Dennis Shields.

“I would read your letters and messages and grow from your struggles. You would give me your honest opinion about my products and projects and helpful advice about divorce, relationships, motherhood, miscarriages, health, and surviving the death of a loved one and almost my own,” she wrote. “You have shared your ideas with me and I have been inspired by and learned from you.”

BETHENNY FRANKEL SAYS SHE IS HAVING TROUBLE ‘MENTALLY RECOVERING’ FROM NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE

The reality star took a break from “RHONY” from 2010 to 2015 but has since used her platform to grow her brand, which has ventured into fashion and philanthropy as time has gone on.

“I am fortunate to have created a business and career that some people only dream of. I had a beautiful baby girl who is now 9 years old, and she has changed me as a human being,” she said. “I was able to give back and help people all over the world who have been hit with the worst of unforeseen circumstances, which we will all continue together.”

She concluded her post by encouraging her fans to pursue their dreams and “make the impossible happen, because it can happen and it WILL happen.”

Frankel assured her fans that amazing things are still to come from her in her next chapter off camera and that New York City is still her playground, giving a cheeky nod to her original “Housewives” tagline.

“I love you all and am so lucky to have you in my life!” she said.

French zoo visitors carve their names on rhino’s back

French zoo blasted the “stupidity” of its visitors on Wednesday after some scratched their names on a rhino’s back.

Shocking photographs shared on social media showing the back of the 35-year-old female rhinoceros inscribed with the names “Camille” and “Julien” immediately sparked an uproar.

La Palmyre zoo in Royan in southwestern France released a statement saying it was “outraged by the stupidity and disrespect” of the visitors, though no legal action will be taken, reported the Agence France-Presse, an international news agency.

The zoo typically allows the visitors to touch the animals over a fence of their enclosure, claiming this creates a “moving” experience that allows the animal lovers to see “the diversity and beauty of nature.”

Miley Cyrus ‘disappointed’ Liam Hemsworth filed for divorce: report

Miley Cyrus was blindsided by estranged husband Liam Hemsworth’s decision to officially end their marriage, according to a new report.

The Australian actor filed to divorce Cyrus, 26, on Wednesday, and while the news didn’t come as a shock to many outside the relationship, People magazine reported Cyrus wasn’t expecting the split so soon.

“She didn’t expect it and is a bit disappointed, but she is still doing well and has obviously moved on as well,” a Cyrus insider told the outlet after the divorce filing.

LIAM HEMSWORTH, MILEY CYRUS MAY NEVER GET BACK TOGETHER, SOURCE SAYS HE’S SICK OF ‘BEING HUMILIATED’

“What she and Liam had for a long time was very special,” the source added. “It’s just hard for her to think that she will never have this again with Liam. There are really so many things that she loves about him.”

People reported that Hemsworth, 29, cited “irreconcilable differences” in the couple’s eight-month marriage, and a rep for Cyrus confirmed in a statement to People on Aug. 10 that the A-list couple had called it quits – while a source alleged to the magazine that the pair had split months prior to the separation.

“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time,” the statement read. “Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers.

In a report published Wednesday, a source told People that despite Cyrus’ over-the-top antics – including “basically having sex” in public with Kaitlynn Carter and releasing a song hinting that Hemsworth’s alleged penchant for “whiskey and pills” were to blame for their breakup – she “didn’t want to hurt” the “Hunger Games” star.

Cyrus and Hemsworth tied the knot in December 2018 after losing their Malibu home in a wildfire. Their marriage was the latest twist in more than a decade of on-again-off-again romance.

Sources told TMZ that Cyrus and Hemsworth had a prenuptial agreement, so the division of property is likely to move forward without a hitch.

MLB warns players about sex pills blamed for positive PED tests

Major League Baseball has warned players of the “very real risk” of over-the-counter sexual enhancement pills which contain banned substances, according to media reports.

In a memo sent to major league and minor league players this week, MLB warned that “[s]exual or male enhancement products present a very real risk for drug-tested players and the high likelihood for contamination or unidentified ingredients in these products underscores the importance of consuming only those products that are NSF Certified for Sport.”

ESPN, which obtained the memo, reported that use of the pills, which are often sold at gas stations, is so prevalent among players that MLB felt compelled to issue the warning.

The league reminded players that they are subject to discipline should they test positive for banned substances. At least two players have blamed the pills after testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. The names of the two players were not released.

“We know from experience that a number of these sexual or male enhancement products – which are sold online, at retail stores, and on the black market, both in the United States and internationally – contain anabolic steroids and other prohibited substances,” the memo said.

“For this reason,” the memo continued, “we strongly urge players against taking any sexual or male enhancement product, from any source.”

The memo suggested that players who “suffer from erectile dysfunction or other legitimate issues related to sexual performance … speak to a licensed physician about the various prescription medications available to treat those conditions.”
