Compassionate Biden: Migrant children moved from cages into humane high-security metal containment cubes

Biden has finally ended the cruel and long-standing Trump practice of keeping migrant kids in cages, and has elected to move them into much more compassionate "high-security metal containment cubes."

"We are proud of our cute little containment cubes," said Kamala Harris while loudly laughing for some inexplicable reason. "Look at them all neat and tidy , lined up in a row! Hahahahahaha!"

The new administration has assured the American people that the containment cubes are "completely different" than the evil cages Trump used to use, mainly because they are called "containment cubes" instead of cages.

Social workers on the border confirmed the children will be given up to three meals per day, will be allowed to attend anti-racism classes on Zoom, and provided with free air conditioning--at least when the power is working.

Children will be kept in these highly humane holding units until the cubes can be conveniently loaded onto a truck and shipped back to South America.

Hitler vindicated after historians discover his ideas came from Darwin

WORLD — Hitler has been vindicated of all his horrific wrongdoings after several historians discovered he simply borrowed most of his ideas from the celebrated scientist Charles Darwin.

"Wow-- we had no idea!" said Dr. Samuel Müller, a biology professor at Harvard. "As it turns out, Hitler was just following the scientific consensus around eugenics that was shared by every respected scientific institution at the time! He was just following the science! What a great guy!"

According to experts, the seeds of the eugenics movement were planted by Darwin himself in his book The Descent of Man. Darwin's own son Leonard Darwin, and his cousin Francis Galton went on to found the eugenics movement. The goal of the movement was "self-directed evolution," improving mankind by weeding out those deemed genetically "unfit." Experts say that Hitler latched on to this movement, which resulted in the murder of millions of innocent people.

How do you do, fellow kids? Biden White House leaves followers baffled after tweeting out-of-touch meme with Canadian PM

The Biden administration has taken a popular meme and mutilated it, leaving what appears to be praise for Canada's Justin Trudeau but which was hard to understand either way.

Biden's White House Twitter account posted two images in a row captioned "How it started. How it's going" on Wednesday. The first showed Biden and Trudeau walking side by side down a hallway lined with flags, apparently from Biden's term as Vice President under Barack Obama. The second featured a large screen on which Trudeau was projected, with Biden turned towards it, seemingly in mid-speech, clearly taken during the pandemic.


It's not clear what message Biden was trying to send with the meme, which - if interpreted in the typical way - suggests that Biden talking to the larger-than-life Trudeau represents a deterioration of relations. The meme began life as a way for people to sum up the arc of their romantic relationships, but shortly after its arrival became used almost exclusively in a sarcastic manner.

Dr. Fauci reminds everyone that we will only have to wear masks until humans evolve organic face coverings at birth

fauci
After causing an uproar for constantly extending how long masks will be required, Dr. Fauci has finally provided much some needed answers. In a recent interview, Dr. Fauci has once and for all explained that we will only need to wear cloth masks until humans evolve them.

"As soon as humans naturally evolve an organic nose and mouth covering at birth, then we can start dialing back on the mask mandates." clarified Dr. Fauci. "This isn't going to be some endless, arbitrary policy. We have clear, scientific measures informing us when masks are obsolete."

"Well that is a huge relief!" said Cathy Pittman. "We just have to trust the science and everything will be better in no time! I was starting to think the masks were going to become permanent parts of our lives!"

In a statement, Dr. Fauci gave his estimate for when he thinks that the evolved facemasks might become a reality. "We're working with a purely scientific, definitive timetable now. We just need exactly right at about 2-5 millionish years give or take to probably evolve facemasks for the most part."

When pressed further, Dr. Fauci continued by saying, "I know that time will be here before you know it, but I don't think life should start returning to normal until humans are born with at least 2 naturally occurring face masks. So just another quick 5 million years!"

Man who doesn't believe in settled science on gender, unborn babies or economics claims 'science on climate change is settled'

man glasses hipster woke
Local man Trevor J. Gavyn pleaded with his conservative coworker to "believe the science on climate change," though he himself does not believe the science on the number of genders there are, the fact that unborn babies are fully human, and that socialism has failed every time it has been tried.

"It's just like, the science is settled, man," he said in between puffs on his vape. "We just need to believe the scientists and listen to the experts here."

"Facts don't care about your feelings on the climate, bro," he added, though he ignores the fact that there are only two biological genders. He also hand-waves away the science that an unborn baby is 100% biologically human the moment it is conceived and believes economics is a "conservative hoax foisted on us by the Illuminati and Ronald Reagan."

"That whole thing is, like, a big conspiracy, man," he said.

The conservative coworker, for his part, said he will trust the science on gender, unborn babies, and economics while simply offering "thoughts and prayers" for the climate.

Not satire: Chinese prof argues ancient western civilizations were faked to demean China

A Chinese professor claims that the Egyptian pyramids, the Parthenon, and other remnants of ancient civilizations in the West, were all faked by Western scholars in order to fabricate an ancient history, and diminish the glory of China.

Hong Kong News outlet Hong Kong 01 is just one of many Chinese language media who reported on the farcical claims after Professor Huang Heqing broadcast one of his lectures live to the internet recently.

While ultranationalist conspiracy theories are not rare in China (or indeed, in any other country), what makes this story even more bizarre is that Huang teaches in the School of Arts and Archeology at Zhejiang University - one of the oldest, most selective, and prestigious universities in China.
huang heqing
Huang Heqing stated in his lecture that from the 19th to 20th centuries, the West was rampantly forging historical and cultural relics, and spending huge sums of money everywhere from the Mediterranean to India, fabricating fake ancient relics.

The Pyramids of Khufu, and the Great Sphinx of Giza, were made of concrete, and constructed in the 19th century, Huang claims.

"A well-known French chemist and material scientist conducted physical and chemical analysis on the Khufu pyramid in the 1980s, and confirmed that other than a small amount of natural stone, it mostly consisted of concrete," says Huang, referring to the controversial theories of Joseph Davidovits, who posits that the Egyptians built the pyramid using a limestone-based cement invented thousands of years before the Romans invented concrete.

Journalists cheer as Jen Psaki announces the gulags will be run by a woman of color

jen psaki
Journalists around the nation erupted in boisterous cheers when White House Press Secretary, Jen Psaki, announced that the gulags will be run by a woman of color.

The announcement came as a result of an unscripted moment when a reporter relayed to Psaki a question from a concerned citizen back home, "What is President Biden doing for my small business?"

Psaki didn't miss a beat showing how clearly prepared she was for such a hard-hitting question.

Biden defends Hitler's concentration camps: 'Nazi Germany just had different norms'

joe biden
In a recent presidential town hall on CNN, Biden appeared to excuse the treatment of Jews in Hitler's concentration camps due to "differences in cultural norms."

"Listen, folks-- I was just on the phone with Adolf and I was like, 'Hey, man! You know that whole thing with the camps? You and I may not see eye to eye on those things. That's OK, Jack! Different norms!'"

"The thing that struck me about President Biden's town hall -- aside from a few completely innocent and harmless missteps -- is just how empathetic and compassionate our new president is," said CNN Anchor Don Lemon. "Frankly, I would rather have a president who defends concentration camps with compassion than one who attacks them with a mean and nasty tone. That's really what matters here."

Side hustle: Babylon Bee awards staff writing position to Joe Biden - 'it's more efficient'

Joe Biden

The Bee's newest staffer
The Bible tells us to work smarter, not harder. Or, better yet, don't work at all if you can help it. You can look it up. It's in the Proverbs somewhere.

That's why we're announcing today that we will simply be republishing everything Joe Biden says word for word rather than spending a lot of time and effort writing satire.

We at The Babylon Bee realized we were spending all this time trying to satirize Joe Biden when, frankly, he just can't be satirized. He's doing all the hard work for us with statements like "You ain't black!" and, of gun violence, that "150 million people have been killed since 2007."

Every day is a real grind when we arrive at the sprawling Babylon Bee headquarters, settle in on our throne of Chick-fil-A sandwiches, and boot up the ol' PC to check what Biden said over the past 24 hours. We're tired of trying to out-parody things like "I got hairy legs that turn blonde in the sun and the kids used to reach in the pool and rub my leg down and watch the hair come back up again" and "Corn Pop was a bad dude."

Like, what do you do with that? Seriously. Go ahead. Try to satirize it. Anything you do just doesn't have that perfect mix of absurdity and reality that makes satire work so effective at communicating truth. So we're throwing in the towel.

We'd also like to take this opportunity to thank Joe Biden for being such a great satirical performance artist. You're the real hero, Joe. The people really need comedy in a time like this, and you're doing a great job. Keep it up!

Finally, laugh at these hilarious Babylon Bee headlines from our new best satirist, Joe Biden:
  • Biden: 'Poor Kids Are Just As Bright As White Kids'
  • Joe Biden Says All Men And Women Are Created By You Know The Thing
  • Presidential Candidate Nibbles On His Wife's Fingers
  • Joe Biden: 'I'm Going To Beat Joe Biden'
  • 'Go To Joe 30330' Says Joe
  • Biden Tells Campaign Rally 'We Choose Truth Over Facts'
  • Joe Biden Calls Iowa Man 'Fat' And A '[FLOWERBED] Liar'
You can look forward to lots more content coming from your new favorite Babylon Bee writer any moment now.

Secret Service puts finishing touches on Biden's presidential scooter, 'Chair Force One'

Chair Force One
As part of the transition to a new administration, the Secret Service is working hard to make the White House safe and secure for the incoming 78-year-old president. One of the most important pieces of hardware in the White House will be Biden's presidential scooter, affectionately dubbed "Chair Force One."

"This will be one of the most advanced pieces of geriatric technology the world has ever seen," said Secret Service Director James Murray. "With the ability to go from 0 to 3 miles per hour in 12 seconds, it will completely encase Mr. Biden in a shell of bulletproof glass as he sits in the back seat and a trained agent drives him around. It's also equipped with Life Alert technology and a handy basket for his daily meds."

Sources say the technological marvel of handicap design will also have built-in teleprompters to help Biden know what words he's supposed to say next during everyday conversation.

"So, you go ahead and stack spaghetti sauce at a store and a supermarket," said Biden, visibly excited about the new scooter. "You control the guy or the woman who runs the ... or brings out the carts on a forklift. What happened?"

He then growled at the Secret Service agent driving him around and growled "GET OFF MY CHAIR!" before kicking the poor agent out of his seat and to the ground.
