Newsmax host scolds Biden for giving Jill Dandelion while spreading inaccurate scientific info

Call it Danelion-gate.

Apparently at a loss for many real scandals within the Biden administration, right wing Newsmax host Grant Stinchfield aired footage of President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden walking to Marine One when the president stopped, bent over and picked a dandelion and give it to his wife.

Of course, the incident heavily divided social media — some saying it was cute and romantic, some just scratching their heads and moving on with their lives and some, like Stinchfield, making a federal case out it (since the dandelion was located on federal property, we’ll assume it would be under federal jurisdiction).

“Biden bizarrely gives Jill a dandelion” read the banner on screen when the host ranted bout the incident, saying: “Joe Biden … stops to picks up … I think it’s a dandelion? But it’s a dandelion that hasn’t even blossomed into a flower yet, like it gives everybody asthma. So you blow it, it goes everywhere, and then everybody starts sneezing.”

He continued: “Well, he picks up the weed and gives it to Jill as what I guess is supposed to be some kind of a sweet gesture.”

Not only is Stinchfield overlooking the multiple times that cameras caught Melania Trump swatting away Donald Trump’s attempts at holder her hand or other contact, but he also apparently missed elementary school science about the life cycle of flowers.

The flower in question was actually in the white “seed” stage of being a flower — which is the last part of its life cycle. The familiar yellow “blossom” is the step before that — when it’s in the flowering stage.

Flowers are generally brightly colored to help attracted insects that, in turn, pollenate a plant to allow it to reproduce asexually.

The white “helicopters” in this stage are known as pappus and help carry the seeds via air currents to other parts of the area where the plan is growing. Each flower releases about 170 seeds at a time and can repeat its cycle throughout the season with as many as 2,000 seeds produced.
