Biden plays Mario Kart with granddaughter at Camp David

Nevermind the impeachment trial — President Biden spent time playing video games with his granddaughter during a weekend at Camp David, the presidential retreat in the Maryland mountains. 

Naomi Biden, the daughter of Hunter Biden, posted in an Instagram story Saturday that her grandfather beat her “barely” in a game of “Mario Kart.”

“Secret service made an exception and allowed him to drive himself,” she posted, linking to a short video of them playing the video games. “A little rusty, but he still won (barely).”

The White House said that Biden and his family are spending the weekend at Camp David for the first time since he entered the White House in January.

Other than meeting with his national security team, the president has nothing else on his schedule.

He arrived there on Friday afternoon by motorcade after Air Force One landed in Hagerstown, Md.

Despite the impeachment trial of his predecessor, President Donald Trump, continuing on Saturday, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Biden would watch a “bit” of the trial, but said he would leave it up to the Senate to decide on an outcome.

Trump was acquitted in a 57-43 vote.

Biden’s administration was also embroiled in a scandal Saturday as another spokesman, TJ Ducklo, resigned for reportedly threatening a reporter who planned to write about his relationship with another journalist.

The heavily guarded resort in the mountains has allowed presidents dating back to Dwight Eisenhower to escape the glare of the spotlights. 

Guests make their way around the rustic lodges using golf carts and can take advantage of the tennis courts, horseshoe pits, swimming pool, golf driving range, as well as sledding, ice skating and snowmobiling, the government says on its Camp David website.

10 rockets strike Iraqi base hosting US troops

Ten rockets struck an Iraqi base hosting US troops on Wednesday morning, security sources said.

No fatalities were immediately reported in the attack on Ain al-Asad air base, which also houses Iraqi forces, the sources said.

A Baghdad Operations Command official told Reuters that 13 rockets were fired at the base from about 5 miles away.

Monday’s attack is the second time in less than a month US forces were targeted on Iraqi soil.

A Feb. 15 rocket attack against a US military base in Northern Iraq killed a US-led coalition contractor and left others wounded, including an American service member.

That strike led to a retaliatory bombing by the US last week on a complex inside Syria used by an Iran-supported militia.

The Biden administration said the airstrikes were intended to deter future attacks on US troops in Iraq.

Investigators retrieve 'black box' data from Tiger Woods' SUV

Investigators working to determine the cause of Tiger Woods’ rollover crash have obtained data stored in the “black box” of the luxury SUV he was driving, a report said.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department executed a search warrant to gather the information, which could show the vehicle’s speed before the collision and whether its brakes were applied, authorities told USA Today.

“We’re trying to determine if a crime was committed,” Sheriff’s Deputy John Schloegl told the news outlet.

“If somebody is involved in a traffic collision, we’ve got to reconstruct the traffic collision. If there was any reckless driving, if somebody was on their cell phone or something like that. If there was no crime, we close out the case, and it was a regular traffic collision.”

Woods was driving a 2021 Genesis GV80 alone when he veered across the median on Hawthorne Boulevard in Rancho Palos Verdes, went off the road and struck a tree.

The legendary golfer broke several bones in his lower right leg and is still recovering in the hospital.

A forensic car expert had told USA Today that it appeared Woods was not paying attention in the moments before the devastating crash.

“To me, this is like a classic case of falling asleep behind the wheel, because the road curves and his vehicle goes straight,” Jonathan Cherney, a consultant who serves as an expert witness in court cases, told the news outlet.

Felix Lee, an accident reconstruction expert, told the outlet: “My feeling is that speed wasn’t that much of an issue. It was just some kind of inattention that caused the curb strike.”
