Anyone who doubts that Barack Obama has a sense of humor should take a look at his endorsement of Joe Biden for president of the United States. Really, it’s a skilled performance, and delivered, mirabile dictu, with a straight face. Give it a try. Seriously, go grab a mirror and put on your best sincere expression and say out loud, “Joe Biden would bring ‘leadership guided by knowledge and experience, honesty and humility, empathy and grace’ to the Capital.”

Did you bust out laughing? Of course you did. How could you not? After all Obama did say “knowledge and experience, honesty and humility, empathy and grace.”

I don’t blame President Obama for saying that he put his ‘good friend’ Joe in charge of the ‘recovery act’ that was supposed to rescue the country after the assault of the 2008 recession. I’d want to pass off responsibility for that too – it was the most lackluster recovery in American history. ‘Joe gets stuff done,’ said Obama. But when it really comes down to it, what has he ever gotten done — apart from enriching himself and his family, of course?

Obama packed a lot of disingenuous comments into his endorsement, but none more than his claim that good ole Joe ‘helped prevent the Ebola epidemic from becoming the type of pandemic we’re seeing now.’ WHAT?!?!? There were 11 cases of Ebola in the US in 2014, it wasn’t an epidemic but a minor health scare. The coronavirus, by contrast, is more like the seasonal flu. The number of cases would have been far higher had Trump not had the good sense to cancel all flights from China. An action that Biden slammed as ‘fear-mongering’ and xenophobic.

That’s okay because even President Trump found the endorsement amusing. In return he ended up tweeting a meme showing former President Barack Obama squirming uncomfortably as he and a group of guys watch Joe Biden talking about kids jumping in his lap. I love it, I couldn’t make this stuff up!

When he married his wife, a true god-send, he was gifted with two more daughters and another grandchild. In his youth, Nick was a liberal activist but like many, he eventually became disillusioned with what had become of the once justified movement. The insanity of the world inspired Nick to shine a light on the global media bias. Through his videos he wants to call attention to the inconsistencies in the scientific community and how society has grown blind to common sense and logic. Nick's mission is to inform, enlighten and inspire people to think for themselves, not simply regurgitate memes and bumper stickers. He admits it often feels like he’s trying to teach Geometry to Goldfish. He vows not to give up, regardless. He wants to inspire future generations, especially his children and grandchildren to, “Always investigate before you voice your opinion or you are merely repeating someone else’s opinion. Never blindly believe anything that anyone says; not even ME, until you do your own research and reach your own conclusions. " He hopes you are informed, inspired or at the very least entertained by his contributions and efforts to arouse a logical interpretation of today’s societal events.
