“Schlapp, who spent five years as the chief of staff to a Kansas congressman, worked in the office of political affairs for former President George W. Bush,” the Examiner piece said. “But he has been a strong supporter of President Trump, maintaining close ties to the White House, both personally and through his wife, a Republican operative.”

Roberts has been a member of the U.S. Senate since 1997, and serves alongside Sen. Jerry Moran, also a Republican. He serves as the Chairman for the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry, and serves on the Senate Committee on Finance, the Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, the Select Committee on Ethics and the Committee on Rules & Administrations.

He has sponsored six bills that have become law, including two to rename post offices.

Who could he possibly be waving to?

Biden doesn’t have millions of energetic supporters who will arrive at the airport to greet him, unlike President Trump. The Democratic nominee was arriving in Tampa, Florida, for a few scripted campaign events in the swing state where new polling reveals he’s losing the Hispanic demographic to President Trump, an unprecedented demographic swing in the recent history of the state’s elections.

There appear to be a few airport employees in the distance, but they seem to be facing the other way.

Biden’s campaign team called a ‘lid’ on his day of active campaigning on Saturday… at the ripe hour of 8:35 in the morning.

This is quite concerning. A President should be cognitively sharp and acutely aware of his surroundings. Biden’s latest gaffe appears to do little more than raise even more questions about his mental acuity.
