I know I haven’t been posting a lot on here, but I’ve been traveling all over the country these past few weeks. This morning, for instance we’re getting ready to visit, well…

Schneider did not meet with President Joe Biden, the White House confirmed.
Schneider, a man who is living as a woman, took the crown for the highest earning female Jeopardy! contestant in December before losing his 40-game streak in January 2022.
Standing in the briefing room, Schneider specifically condemned recent legislation passed in Republican state legislatures to protect female sports in schools and prevent teachers from pushing transgender agenda in the classroom.
