Stimulus Deal

The White House and the Senate finished their deal early Wednesday morning over a $2-trillion package to place band-aids on an economy about to hit a major depression. The deal ends days of negotiations that produced one of the most expensive and far-reaching measures in the history of Congress.

"Ladies and gentleman, we are done," White House legislative affairs director Eric Ueland said right before 1 a.m. after leaving Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's office. The battle over riders and pork has been going around the clock since last Friday. "We have a deal."

McConnell came to the floor to tell everyone, "At last, we have a deal. After days of intense discussions, the Senate has reached a bipartisan agreement on a historic relief package for this pandemic."

Scarecrow Joe

Former Vice President Joe Biden fought with an autoworker about the 2nd amendment today. Today is also a primary day for Michigan.

“You are actively trying to diminish our second amendment right and take away our guns,” the autoworker yelled at Biden while appearing to be looking at his phone.

“You’re full of shit,” Biden fired back, adding, “I support the second amendment.”

“From the very beginning, I have a shotgun, I have a 20 gauge, a 12 gauge, my son’s hunt,” Biden said, adding, “I’m not taking your gun away at all.”

“If you need 100 rounds,” Biden said, before being interrupted while trying to find common ground with the union member.

Biden then dismissed viral videos the autoworker was citing as not accurate and mentioned “AR-14’s.”

“Look, here’s the deal, here’s the deal,” Biden said. “Are you able to own a machine gun? Under the law?”

Biden’s campaign has said previously that if elected, he would ban assault weapons.

“Machine guns are illegal,” the autoworker responded.

“That’s right,” Biden responded, adding, “So are AR-15’s illegal…”

There are more deaths in America from handguns then what you call assault rifles,” the autoworker said, “why are you advocating for assault rifles…”

The autoworker then continued to argue with the former Vice President before being pulled away by a union leader.
