Joe Biden hasn’t been president for very long, but it’s already abundantly clear that his relationship with the media is far cozier than Donald Trump’s was (with the occasional exception, of course).
They’ve got kind of mutual-appreciation-society kind of thing going on. So when the White House press corps licks Joe Biden’s hand, it’s only natural that he toss some treats their way.
So that’s what he did yesterday:
Biden tells the press they're the "smartest group of people in town."

Guess it’s easy to say something like that with a straight face when you’ve been lying for as many decades as Joe Biden has.

This is the kind of judgement we are dealing with, folks. It's going to be a four year ass kissing competition, and I can predict they will both win.
