Newsmax has launched bizarre attacks on the Bidens before, so this newest rant is nothing new, really. In the past, the right-wing outlet has attacked the Bidens’ dog, Champ, calling him “dirty” and “unlike a presidential dog.” Newsmax host Grant Stinchfield has lashed out over vice-president Kamala Harris’s laugh and compared her to a wicked witch. I don’t ever recall former vice-president Mike Pence laughing, though. Stinchfield has also attacked President Biden over his Catholic faith, so no bar is too low for that outlet.
Stinchfield did it again, this time attacking President Joe Biden for pausing on Thursday to pick a dandelion for the first lady before they boarded Marine One on their way to Georgia. The Newsmax bizarrely claimed that the dandelion presented to the first lady “hasn’t even blossomed into a flower yet.”
The host then went on to falsely claim that dandelions seed heads “give everybody asthma,” and as a person with asthma, I have no idea what he’s talking about. And then, he launched some sort of conspiracy theory, I think, by saying the dandelion was “planted there.” Well, yeah, Mr. Man, dandelions grow from the ground. But it appears he thinks it was staged; it’s hard to say.
“He picks up the weed and gives it to Jill in what, I guess, is supposed to be some kind of sweet gesture,” Stinchfield said. “I say it was a planted dandelion there, who knows.”

Newsmax will probably have a shorter shelf life than the dandelion.

These people just can’t access the dude just wanted to give flower to his wife. Fucking automatons.

Newsmax doesn’t know what love looks like unless it’s slapping a hand away

Yes, he caught President Biden giving his wife a dandelion. What a scandal. If stupidity were painful, the hosts at Newsmax would be in the emergency ward.
