Sean Hannity: Biden Stair Stumble Explanation Is Biggest Lie Any White House Ever Told
Sean Hannity on Wednesday said that the White House’s explanation for why President Joe Biden stumbled up the steps of Air Force One was the biggest lie ever told in the press room. In response, people on social media vigorously pointed out how wrong he was.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki attributed last week’s incident to the “tricky” stairs after Karine Jean-Pierre, the deputy press secretary, told reporters on the plane, “It’s very windy. I almost fell coming up the steps myself.”
On his radio show, Hannity asked guest Bill O’Reilly, “Do you believe the lie that ― and I think it’s a lie ― that Joe Biden was pushed to the ground by a gust of wind three times? Because I don’t think there’s ever been a bigger lie told from that podium.”
Twitter said, um what?

Suez Canal trouble, Passover, NCAA tournaments: 5 things to know this weekend
More attempts will be made to free vessel stuck in Suez Canal
Japanese firm Shoei Kisen KK, which owns the giant container ship stuck sideways across the Suez Canal in Egypt, said an attempt will be made to refloat the vessel later on Saturday by taking advantage of tidal movements. The Ever Given turned sideways in a blinding sandstorm and got wedged Tuesday in a single-lane stretch of the canal, about 3.5 miles north of the southern entrance. At a news conference Friday night, Yukito Higaki, the company’s president, said 10 tugboats were deployed and workers were dredging the banks and sea floor near the vessel’s bow to try to get it afloat again as the high tide starts to go out. “We apologize for blocking the traffic and causing the tremendous trouble and worry to many people, including the involved parties,” he added. A maritime traffic jam grew to around 280 vessels Saturday outside the Suez Canal, according to canal service provider Leth Agencies.

NFL offseason schedule – OTAs and minicamps – on agenda for next week’s virtual owners meetings
Who needs the offseason?
That’s been the vibe coming from the NFL Players Association after what happened during the 2020 campaign, when the league pulled off a complete season during a pandemic without as much as a single OTA session.
You remember OTAs? The “organized team workouts” that extend for two months or longer during the spring? Perhaps last season proved, as union president JC Tretter has expressed, that players don’t really need to engage with so much football during a conventional “offseason” in order to produce a quality product.
After all, for such a grueling physical occupation as football, bodies could sure use ample recovery time rather than the additional injury risks that show up as the intensity of workouts progress during OTAs.
