Once again I have to say, “I don’t understand this AT ALL.”
The photo didn’t come from the Babylon Bee, it came from the Carter Center, which was not hacked. The place really did send out this ridiculous photo that makes Joe Biden look like Andre the Giant, Rosalynn Carter look like Lily Tomlin playing “Edith Ann” on “Laugh-in,” Dr. Biden look like she’s remaking “Attack of the 50 Ft. Woman” and the former President look like Dorf.
1. What idiot at the Carter Center didn’t pick up on the fact that the photo made the Center’s scions look like dolls? How hard is that? Is this fool still employed? Does he or she secretly hate the Carters? “We’re pleased to share this wonderful photo from the @POTUS and @FLOTUS visit to see the Carters in Plains, Ga.!” the Center’s tweet said. “Wonderful”? It’s an incompetent photo.
2. What allged photographer took that monstrosity? Who approved and released it? Who are these incompetent employees?
3. No masks? No masks inside within inches of two high risk seniors in their Nineties?
4. This may be even weirder than the photo: Democrat hack journalist and pundit Jonathan Alter and Washington Post reporter Teo Armus actually tried to rationalize the fiasco as if there can be any excuse for the distortion other than rank ineptitude by multiple parties.
Armus begins, embarrassingly, “On first glance, the photograph seems typical enough.” What? WHAT??? At first glance, the photo looks like a shot from “Dr. Cyclops”! Then Teo turns it over to Alter, who wrote a fawning bio of Jimmy. Believe it or not, Alter tries to explain the photo by saying that the Carters “aren’t tiny people, but they are in the medium-to-smaller size among presidents and first ladies” and “when you’re very old, you shrink.”
Yeah, Jonathan, I’m sure that’s why Jimmy looks like Tattoo on “Fantasy Island.”
It gets worse:
Another factor in the optics of the photo, perhaps, is Carter’s slim build, Alter said. The former president regularly ran long distances while living in the White House, learned to ski in his 60s, and — even well into his 90s — traveled to exotic locales like Siberia for fly-fishing trips. He was also a skilled carpenter who crafted many pieces of wooden furniture, including the round coffee table on display in the image.
How hard is to just come out and say that a succession of boobs connected to President Biden and the Carter Center screwed up wildly and made both the Carters and Bidens look ludicrous?
Too hard, apparently…
