Welcome to the RedState Weekly Briefing  — where we take a quick look at the week’s most viewed stories in case you missed any of them. Grab a cup of coffee (or a frosty cold beer — it's officially summer, after all), and sit down with this 21st Century Weekend Edition of your favorite (online) publication! 


#1 - Ted Cruz Drops Big Prediction About Replacing Biden and Who It Will Be — by Nick Arama

Now, Michelle Obama as a candidate might get more votes than Biden. 

But as Cruz notes, she's likely more left than her husband. Plus, her experience is being a politician's wife for years. She'd be a horrible choice, and I don't think she would be as popular as Democrats may think. In the wake of how much Democrats have messed up under Biden, I don't think Americans necessarily want to sign aboard for what would be the third term of Barack Obama (or the fourth, if you believe he's running Biden's administration now).

#2 - WATCH: Trump Comes Up With a New Name for Biden During Rally in Virginia—It's Right on Target — by Nick Arama

In the wake of the first debate, Joe Biden and his team have been doing all they can to try to spin away the disaster.

But it isn't doing much good. He is getting savaged in all the media over how badly he did. Plus, on Friday, Biden continued to be incoherent and screaming in North Carolina, and went into pandering overdrive in New York City for the Stonewall monument visit. 

Meanwhile, former President Donald Trump went to a rally in Virginia on Friday. Virginia, which should have been safe blue for Biden, is now in play because of the strength of Trump and the weakness of Biden.

#3 - Gotta Love It: Trump Takes Unusual Approach to Dem Implosion Over Biden, and It's Driving the MSM Nuts — by Sister Toldjah


So with Biden's disastrous Thursday debate performance taking center stage along with the Democrat implosions, the donor freakouts, and all the media recriminations, one would think Trump would be taking a victory lap, saying along the way "Toldjah so!" right?

He's not doing it, y'all.

Outside of a smattering of posts and reposts about Biden's awful performance and what it signifies, the bulk of his Truth Social account has been focused on the SCOTUS immunity ruling and other matters related to the left's lawfare campaigns against him.

#4 - Jill Biden's Ex-Husband Goes There: 'She's the One Who Wants to Be President Now' — by Bob Hoge

But if there’s anybody who should know about the mind of Mrs. Biden, it’s someone who was married to her for five years. Granted, it was a long time ago, but Bill Stevenson was espoused to the Doctor of Education from 1970 to 1975, and he no longer recognizes the woman he once loved:

"The Dr. Jill Biden who I’ve seen on TV in the last five years is not the same person I married or that I recognize in any way," Stevenson lamented. "She’s matriculated into a completely different woman."

On Thursday, the first lady gushed about her husband's debate performance despite immediate calls for Biden to drop out of the race.

"Joe, you did such a great job," she told him at a debate after-party. "You answered every question. You knew all the facts." [Note: This is not parody. That is actually what she said.]


#5 - BOMBSHELL: Report Reveals Extent of Biden's Mental Collapse, Including Terrifying Quotes From Friends — by Bonchie

I keep waiting for the news surrounding Joe Biden's mental collapse to peak, but there doesn't appear to be an end on the horizon. You can't go more than an hour without a new detail being added to the ever-growing scandal, and perhaps the biggest story so far dropped while Americans were celebrating the Fourth of July. 

In an absolute bombshell report, which began taking shape over half a year ago, Biden's condition is laid bare, as is the ongoing cover-up that led to so many denying it for so long. According to New York Magazine, friends of the president recalled encounters with him where he couldn't even remember their names. The quotes and descriptions of events within the article are absolutely wild.
