The Sunday morning talk shows heated up this morning with Vice President Joe Biden firing back at former Vice President Dick Cheney’s criticisms.
Earlier, Cheney told ABC’s Jonathan Karl that Biden was “dead wrong” in his recent assertion that a 9/11-style attack wasn’t likely in the near future. Biden responded on NBC, saying Cheney is “outspoken in a way” that suggests he is trying to re-write the history of America’s fight against terrorism.
“Cheney is entitled to his own opinion,” Biden said, choosing his words carefully. “He is not entitled to re-write history. He is not entitled to his own facts.”
“What about the general proposition that the President… is essentially soft on terrorism,” NBC’s David Gregory asked Biden.
“I don’t think the former Vice President listens,” Biden responded. “The President of the United States said in the State of the Union that we’re at war with al-Qaeda… I don’t know where has Dick Cheney has been. Look, it’s one thing to criticize, it’s another to re-write history. What is he talking about?”
Gregory followed up with a question about Cheney’s motives, but Biden didn’t bite.
“All I know is he’s factually, substantively wrong on the major criticisms he is asserting,” Biden told NBC’s David Gregory. “He either is misinformed or he is misinforming, but the facts are that his assertions are not accurate.”

DonaldJTrump2024.com bought by comedians so they could mock him for the loser he is
Two comedians Jason Selvig and Davram Stiefler (aka “The Good Liars”) purchased DonaldJTrump2024.com and set it up to mock President Trump for refusing to concede the election, planning a 2024 re-run, and ripping off his followers.
The site, which looks almost identical to Trump’s actual website, DonaldJTrump.com, calls Trump a “loser” six times and has a fictional quote from Trump stating, “I lost the 2020 election.” It also has a banner that says “Click here to donate to a PAC that has nothing to do with my legal defense team.”
Trump is ‘suffocating’ the Republican Party after losing: ex-GOP lawmaker
On Saturday's edition of MSNBC's "AM Joy," former Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) warned that President Donald Trump is "suffocating" the GOP in the wake of his defeat in the 2020 election — beginning with the twin Senate runoff races in Georgia.
"For these two Georgia candidates ... usually you want the guy who won the state to come to town on your behalf. Donald Trump was the first Republican to lose Georgia in about 30 years," said Jolly. "So the question is why would you bring to town the Republican who became the first Republican in 30 years to lose the state of Georgia?"
"I think this will be an interesting test for today and going forward: can the Republican Party survive Donald Trump the man?" said Jolly. "It will survive Trumpism. It's stronger than ever. Republicans performed stronger than ever, just as Democrats have. Trumpism has not hurt the Republican Party by performance. Trump the man is suffocating the party. And I think that's going to be a little bit of a myopic, or a little bit of a small example of what we see in Georgia. Can the Republican Party survive Donald Trump the man? It's fine with Trumpism, but can it survive the man?"
Melania Trump considering penning memoir: ‘She’s not done or going as quietly as you might expect’
According to a report from Page Six, outgoing first lady Melania Trump is giving serious consideration to writing a memoir allowing her to make money on her own.
The wife of Donald Trump has been one of the most reticent of first ladies, infrequently making public statements -- often only brief comments in support of her president.
According to the report, she is now considering writing a book about her experiences, with a White House insider stating, "Melania is in meetings to write her White House memoir. And it would be her money — a chance for her to earn on her own.”
