The elites get together and help to create new Republican campaign ads.
The threats against Elon Musk continue.
And Amazon employees show their true colors.
An Elite Get Together
On Saturday night, they held the White House Correspondence Dinner. If you don’t know what that is, it’s a celebration of the news media. It is usually run by a comedian and he roasts the President. It has not been really a thing anyone paid attention to over the last several years. It was not held last year because of the China virus and President Trump never went because he hates the media.
Per tradition, there are always some really distasteful jokes. Remember, this was the same dinner where a comedian made fun of Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ looks. Which, by the way, she took like a champ.
Here is Noah making fun of the economy under Biden:
Trevor Noah: Since you’ve come into office, things are really looking up. Gas is up, rent is up, food is up! Everything!

Now, this would be a good joke because it’s true. I didn’t think it was funny because I knew where he was going before he went there. What was distressing people on Twitter and I don’t blame them was the fact that Joe Biden was laughing hysterically. I can’t think of anything more elitist than a President that laughs at the mess he created.
And people are suffering. Josie spent $250 at the grocery store and that goes along with the $250 she had to pay for her car registration. This is killing her financially. It really is no laughing matter. But Old Joe doesn’t take the economy serious and doesn’t care. It doesn’t affect him.
Here is Trevor Noah pissing on Ron DeSantis. No, he wasn’t there. DeSantis is too busy making Florida awesome while the rest of the country falls apart:
I’m not surprised by this. Ron DeSantis is going to start taking hits from the Left now that it’s looking like he is going to be the next President. I think even Trump is going to go by the wayside and pull away from 2024.
But this is how the media treats Republicans and Conservatives. Not only was everything he said just wrong, but it was mean and not funny. This stuff used to be funny. But it’s not funny. It’s just mean.
Here is Old Joe, probably after a vitamin B shot, trying to be funny while mocking Republicans:
They couldn’t at least get his bow tie straight? This is so embarrassing for our country.

He should worry about the midterms and there is no way in hell he is going to get re-elected.
I also want to point out you know you’re not doing great when the only person laughing at your joke is you.
I do like his last joke about Brandon. It was funny. But I thought it was funny because Joe Biden is completely clueless that he has become a national joke. He’s become a joke in this country and around the world.
Here is Trevor Noah making, I think, a rather tasteless joke about our retreat from Afghanistan that also just got railed online:

I always give comedians a pass. Comedians are there to pick at things. I wasn’t that offended too much about this and, honestly, it was just a bad joke. But it was ill-timed. By the way, he isn’t the first comedian to do this. Gilbert Godfry (may he rest in peace) made a poorly timed joke about 9/11 during a roast of Hugh Hefner that left the crowd silent and one person yelling, “too soon”.
This was an ill-timed joke. Some soldiers of fortune are saying there are 10,000 American citizens and American allies stuck in Afghanistan and left to the tender mercies of the Taliban. Thirteen soldiers will killed in a terrorist attack. We left $83 billion dollars in military gear including helicopter, drones and weapons. Human sex trafficking is happening. The economy is dying. People are starving. Nothing has been resolved and the Afghanistan disaster isn’t over.
Yeah, the joke was, not only not funny, it was ill-timed.
You Knew This Was Coming
According to the Daily Wire:
Senate Democrats are contemplating bringing billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk before Congress for questioning over his future plans for Twitter.
Twitter announced on Monday that the social media giant and Musk, the world’s wealthiest man, had reached an agreement for Musk to purchase the company at $54.20 a share and take it private. Musk has criticized Twitter’s moderation policies and said that the platform should take an approach more in line with the First Amendment.
“We’re thinking about it,” Senate Commerce Chair Maria Cantwell (D-WA) told Bloomberg in response to a question on whether Democrats planned to question Musk.
The Senate Commerce Committee has held hearings with major social media platform heads in the past, such as former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who heads Facebook and Instagram. The committee has also had Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai to testify.
You knew this was coming. What do they want to find out? It’s going to be a private company. Musk doesn’t have to say a damn thing about what his strategies for his private company. Every company I worked for had company secrets that were never disclosed to the public. You could be fired for disclosing secrets.
Ed Markey, the communist; yes, communist, Senator from Massachusetts said:
“It’s a technology which is central to democracy and our economy and it is important for the representatives of the American people to hear what the new owners intend on using that technology to accomplish. We have to understand the censorship or lack thereof, content moderation or not, that is going to be the policy for the new owner.
“In terms of what the values are that this company is going to be creating for the new Elon Musk Twitter world, I think that’s actually a necessary role for Congress to play.”
He never condemned Twitter when they censored Republicans and Conservatives. He never questioned Google or YouTube or Facebook or Instagram or TikTok.
Again, it’s going to be a private company. Musk owes Congress nothing.
Listen, what Democrats are worried about is that Musk is going to do what he said he was going to do: allow for free speech, limit censorship and release data on the algorithms. Leftists don’t want any of that stuff.
Modern Book Burning by Amazon
There is a children’s book out there by a guy named Matt Walsh, a podcaster from the Daily Wire. The book is called Johnny the Walrus. The book is about a very imaginative boy that, one day, believes he’s a walrus. His mother, at first, thinks it’s cute but then is pressured by social media to realize that Johnny actually is a walrus and she must transition him to be a walrus.
Yes, the book is a troll railing against trans-ing kids. I will read the book to you in a video cast this week (I did buy the book).
The book, though a joke for the most part, became extremely popular. It was released in November and sold out in a day. Millions of copies were created and sold on Amazon. Matt Walsh went to number one on the Amazon charts and has been in the top three for LGBTQ literature.
Needless to say, this flipped out Amazon management. They needed to do something. So they had a meeting that was, again, leaked and his book was the topic.
- The book is a 27-page children’s board book.
- It is not troubling or traumatic.
- I also want to point out that all these people in this video sound like they are part of the LGBTQ community so I bet they are biased.
Here’s this gal bitching and moaning to Amazon about the book. It’s a little long but worth the listen.
- This broad is unhinged.
- There is nothing in the book about bullying. In fact, it is the mother that is being bullied by the trans community.
- There is nothing about sending someone to kill trans kids.
- There is nothing in the book about committing or forcing someone to commit suicide.
- And, of course, she’s part of the LGBTQ and the Amazon employee on the phone is part of the LGBTQ.
- This gal needs a job. She has way too much time on her hands.
Here’s the meeting lead talk about the book and how Walsh manipulated Amazon’s algorithms:
- It is a children’s book.
- There is no hate in the book. It disparages no one. It condemns no one.
- Walsh and the Daily Wire did not manipulate anything. They did add it as an LGBTQ book as a counter to all the other LGBTQ trans books out there. There’s nothing wrong with that.
- The book sold out. Did the Daily Wire, who published the book, manipulate everyone to buy the book? That’s why it ended up #1 in the LGBTQ section.
- Maybe they should be more concerned about the other books in the LGBTQ category sucking.
Here’s Chuck giving his thoughts:
- He sounds like he might be part of the LGBTQ community.
- Notice, they want to ban the book. Chuckie, that’s his name, doesn’t want Amazon to sell it at all.
- This is called an echo chamber.
- By the way, someone didn’t like what was being said. They leaked the video.
- There’s nothing disturbing here. Walsh, and most of the country, don’t believe in this transgender crap.
- Walsh isn’t “tricking” anybody. He’s very clear about what he thinks of trans-ing kids.
- The books, What Is a Woman, is his main argument with the trans community. He doesn’t believe in people transitioning to the opposite sex because it doesn’t happen.
- Whenever he debates, and he does a lot, the first thing he asks the pro-trans person is, “What is a woman?” and they have no answer.
- The title of his book is his main argument against the trans philosophy.
Finally, we get the emotional response to such a “hateful” white supremacist. Tears included:
Jeez, toughen up, buttercup. It’s a children’s board book.
Amazon ended up taking the book off of the LGBTQ list and forced the publisher to cease with their advertising campaign because it was “hateful”. The Daily Wire said “no” so Amazon took it off the site anyway. As of today, they haven’t banned the book yet. I’m pretty sure they won’t because it is making a ton of money and Amazon will get sued.
It is still number one in political commentary and opinion.
Walsh went on Tucker Carlson’s show because Tucker loves him. Here’s the introduction:
He then plays the video clips you just listened to.
Walsh then gives his argument in a cardigan sweater because he is, after all, a famous children’s book author and that’s what they wear:
- Is anything he is saying really that controversial?
- By the way, you can tell he is trolling.
Of course, here is the important question:
That is the question and they are already doing it. Amazon has banned books. Amazon has marked literature like Shakespeare and Twain as problematic.
Good news, people are pushing back. This book being a number one best seller proves it.
Amazon leadership held a session for employees dealing with the “trauma” of Matt Walsh’s book becoming a best seller and dealing with his trolling. They strategize on how to demote it on their site and claim he will get people killed. @MattWalshBlog broke them. pic.twitter.com/AKH8ihO0iV

More from the Amazon therapy session for trauma from Matt Walsh’s books: They accuse Matt of hate speech and the host literally breaks down in tears. Attendees are warned “brace yourself” before a clip of Matt reading his book is played. We are living in different realities. pic.twitter.com/naxlcG7RvD
