Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
An endless parade of nitwittery. – Fox News Sunday set a new low for its “panel of experts” yesterday, presenting viewers with a four-person panel that contained both Juan Williams and ex-Obama State Department spokesperson Marie Harf. Anyone who watched the panel through its two full segments was assured of losing at least 15 IQ points. But no worries – the IQ loss can be regained simply by reading anything written by Victor Davis Hanson. The succinct little piece linked here would make a great start.
CNN remains the fake news media king of Nitwittery. – After it was revealed that the Islamic terrorists who were training a small army of kidnapped children out in the wilds of New Mexico were planning on mounting an assault on an Atlanta hospital, all the fake journalists at all the fake news outlets went into a frenzied effort to find some way to spin the story sympathetically towards the…wait for it…TERRORISTS. Because, of course they did.
The fake news hacks at CNN were, as generally seems to be the case, the clear winners in this battle to come up with the worst take imaginable:
Yes, friends, the five mostly unrelated Islamic terrorists who were training the kidnapped children have now morphed into a “family” struggling with life without access to the 24-hour fakery of cable news. Can there be any real doubt that CNN’s fellow fake newsers will award an Emmy to whichever fake journalist came up with this highly-creative line of BS? No, no doubt at all.
Fake news media Nitwittery extends to Twitwittery. – Not to be outdone by her main competition at CNN, notorious New York Times Hillary Clinton lapdog Maggie Haberman issued this hilariously disingenuous tweet in response to one President Trump had sent out earlier in the day.

Mind you, Haberman is fake-mourning the very same John McCain who her current employer and most of the rest of the fake national news media slandered mercilessly throughout the 2008 presidential campaign, characterizing him at various times as a rapist, a spouse abuser, a misogynist, a racist and a madman. But now that his dead body can be used to take absurdly cheap shots at a President Haberman hates, she’s all about the “mourning” of the very same man.
These people are disgusting ghouls.
The fake media Nitwittery even went international. – But wait, there’s more! The London Daily Mail has now dictated the new fake media rule that because a politician who hated President Trump’s very existence has died, President Trump must stop playing golf! I swear I don’t make this stuff up:

Honestly, could the nitwittery and dishonesty get more absurd than this?
Oh, yes. Yes it can.
The fake Senator Flake tops them all. – McCain’s fellow Arizona RINO Senator, Jeff Flake, told an interviewer that the best way to honor McCain is as follows: “By seeing the good in our opponents, by being quick to forgive, by realizing that there’s something more important than ourselves, to put service, you know, over and above our self-interest.”
This would be the exact same Senator Jeff Flake who just got back from a three-week vacation in Africa, which he took in order to prevent the timely confirmation of a raft of President Trump’s judicial nominees. With McCain lingering on his death bed, Flake was able to deny the Senate Republicans the crucial 50th vote necessary to move these nominees and several pieces of legislation past the stonewalling Democrats. But that did not prevent him from, upon his belated return to the U.S., lecturing the rest of us to put “service, you know, over and above our self-interest.” Creepy, disgusting hypocrite.
No wonder the guy has a 15% approval rating among Arizona voters.
Just another day in the Nitwittery is not limited to our fake news media America.
That is all.
