No surprise, but kid gloves treatment by the local news media re: Biden.
This is the pablum we can expect from the Journal Sentinel and America’s entire MSM the next 4 years:
Things are going to be OK.
That’s the message second grader Layla Salas took away from Tuesday night’s town hall with President Joe Biden at the Pabst Theater, where she and her mom, Jessica, asked him about the coronavirus pandemic.
“I felt really, really, really happy when he said that I was going to be OK,” Layla, 8, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Wednesday.
During the exchange, Biden told Layla, “Don’t be scared, honey. Don’t be scared. You’re going to be fine, and we’re going to make sure mommy’s fine, too.”
One of the best parts was that Biden spoke directly to Layla, her mom said.
“It’s fantastic for her to get to be able to put her voice out there, you know, and feel like she’s being heard as a child,” said Jessica, who works as a graphic designer.
Layla and her brother Mateo, 7, have been nervous since in-person school shut down last March, Salas said. They suddenly saw their parents wearing masks and using hand sanitizer constantly. She and her brother couldn’t go anywhere and worried they would catch the virus.
They wondered if they would die from the virus and if family members would also die, Salas said.
During the town hall in Milwaukee, Biden assured Layla that she and other young children are “the safest group of people in the whole world.”
When Layla got home, she told her father that the president told her that it’s all going to be OK.
“She felt very reassured from him, which I couldn’t ask for more from a mother’s perspective,” Salas said.
