Date Challenged

Not trying to bag on anybody but this one is worth reading; Republicans keep forgetting who was President in 2020

...and while I don’t imagine anyone was especially surprised to see that the right-wing Georgian hadn't done her homework, it was part of a curious recent pattern in GOP politics: Republicans keep forgetting who was president in 2020.

Rep. Ronny Jackson of Texas, for example, recently blamed Biden for “paying people to stay home” in 2020, referring to a law that Donald Trump signed the year before Biden took office.

The same week, Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado blamed the Democratic president for Covid-related school closures in 2020 — which, again, was a year that Biden spent on the campaign trail, not in the Oval Office.

It also wasn’t too long ago when former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany also pointed to crime data from 2020 to blame Biden for the U.S. murder rate, apparently unaware that it was her former boss who was president at the time.

I have noticed an awful lot of this sort of sloppy misinformation going on. Is it really that hard for them to read a calendar? Or are they just slinging it?

Uh, present President Biden was never on the 'campaign trail'...the closest he came
was shuffling to the loo, if he could remember where it was.
