Joe Biden is on the defense as his regime goes up in flames.
He’s desperate to cover up his mistakes.
And Joe Biden is panicking after Tom Cotton caught him making this one disgusting move.
The $2 trillion American Rescue Plan is the only signature bill Joe Biden got passed during his first year in office.
Democrats passed the bill without a single Republican vote.
But even though it was supposed to be for COVID relief, it turned out to be nothing more than a special interest giveaway, including a $1,400 stimulus payment to adults and dependents.
And like all of the Left’s spending monstrosities, this bill was also filled with waste, fraud, and abuse.
During Senate debate on the bill, Tom Cotton spotted one horrifying provision.
There was nothing in the bill to try and stop violent criminals or illegal aliens from getting a government check.
“How will sending stimulus checks to murderers and rapists in prison help solve the pandemic?” Cotton asked.
Cotton predicted that Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev would receive $1,400 in Biden bucks.
Cotton, along with Republican Senators Bill Cassidy and Ted Cruz, offered an amendment to the bill to bar inmates from getting a stimulus check.
Every single Democrat Senator voted against this common-sense amendment.
The fake news fact checkers at The Washington Post jumped in to defend Biden, saying Cotton’s claim was “hyped up” and “scaremongering.”
Washington Post “fact checker” Glenn Kessler even slapped a Two-Pinocchio label on the story.
But Tom Cotton was vindicated after news broke that convicted terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one of the Boston Bombers, did in fact receive a $1,400 stimulus check.
The news came out after a local Boston station was covering an effort by a federal prosecutor trying to recover money from Tsarnaev to pay restitution to his victims.
Fortunately, the money won’t fall into Tsarnaev’s grubby mitts.
Instead, it will be used to help pay the victims of his terror.
Cotton destroyed The Washington Post’s fact checkers with a blunt statement, “Fact check: True.”
The Post then rushed into damage control by putting out an absurd correction.
They admitted, “Cotton’s predictive powers should be acknowledged. He said the Boston bomber would get a stimulus check — and Tsarnaev did.”
Sadly, since they claimed Cotton lacked “context,” they wouldn’t admit to their error by moving their “fact check” down to a single Pinocchio.
Predictably, in an effort to cover for Biden, the rest of the corporate-controlled media didn’t pick up the story.
This is the latest vindication against The Washington Post’s fact-checkers for Cotton.
Earlier, they attacked Cotton for saying COVID originated in a lab in Wuhan, calling his claim a “debunked” “conspiracy theory.”
These stimulus payments will turn into a political headache for Biden and the Democrats, as they’ll be forced to defend the indefensible going forward.
