Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
That time when Bill Clinton accidentally stumbled into the truth. – Lifetime woman abuser (that has nothing to do with this story, but it should be repeated every time his name is mentioned) Bill Clinton told an interviewer over the weekend that – gasp! – the news media gave favorable treatment to Barack Hussein Obama. Go figure. Who knew?
“They liked him. And they liked having the first African American president and he was a good president I think,” Clinton said about the media. Uh-ooooohhhhhhh. He went ‘there’, the place no one is ever supposed to go in telling the actual truth about the media’s treatment of Obama, and it naturally caused the extremely predictable outrage among social justice warriors on social media. So tiresome.
Clinton also told the same interviewer that “I couldn’t be elected anything now ’cause I just don’t like embarrassing people,” after being asked what would happen if he ran in 2020. Funny, he never had any problem at all embarrassing Paula Jones or Monica Lewinsky or Kathleen Willey or Juanita Broaddrick or Sandra James or Christy Zercher or…ok, enough.
Go away, Bill. Just. go. away.
Hey, the FBI is just one grand dumpster fire at this point, huh? – An off-duty FBI agent was twerking on a Denver dance floor Saturday night. What could possibly go wrong, you ask?
Well, let me tell you. The guy – who has yet to be publicly identified so we call all shame him out of his job – took time away from twerking long enough to do an awkward back flip, during the course of which his service handgun very predictably fell from its holster onto the floor. Not that big a deal, you say, right? Could happen to anybody who feels the need to carry their favorite pistol with them when they go out for a night of shaking their booty.
But wait, this story gets worse. Much, much worse.
This studly, twerking FBI agent with a bad case of Saturday Night Fever naturally panics (because apparently that’s what they train FBI agents to do these days) and scrambles to grab his gun. In the process of doing that, he pulls the damn trigger and because he hadn’t bothered to set the damn safety, it goes off, hitting a bystander in the leg.
So, you’re a well-trained FBI agent who has just accidentally shot a bystander in the leg with your service gun while out for a night of imitating Mylie Cyrus – what do you do? Well, this guy, no doubt implementing the exact training he personally learned from ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey, calmly re-holstered his pistol and just walked away, leaving others to call for an ambulance and get the victim to the hospital. After all, he’s probably too busy fixing some election there in Colorado.
This is your FBI in action, folks. I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Who could?
Chances for a Korea de-nuke deal just got better. Much, much better. – Don’t expect the fake news media to put much emphasis on this very key story since it’s great news for America and thus terrible news for Democrats, but Reuters reports that, according to senior U.S. officials, the three top generals in the North Korean armed forces were replaced over the weekend.
So, why is this important? Read this from the Japanese Yonhap News Agency, from a report released later on Sunday:
“The North appears to have brought in new figures amid the changes in inter-Korean relations and the situation on the Korean Peninsula as the previous officials lacked flexibility in thinking.”
The phrase “lacked flexibility in thinking” means the three guys who were replaced were opposed to the Crazy Little Fat Guy doing any deal with the U.S. and South Korea to de-nuclearize the Korean Peninsula. These three firings come a few weeks after Army Gen. Kim Su-gil’s replacement of Kim Jong-gak as director of the General Political Bureau of the Korean People’s Army. Taken all together, they most likely give Kim Jong Un the flexibility he needs to move forward on a deal because he no longer has to worry about a military coup taking place while he’s out of the country. Funny how that works.
Democrats and their fake news agents will do their best to ignore this crucial development or spin it into something negative. Of course, that’s been their strategy with the booming economy and employment numbers too, and we see how well that’s all working out for them. It’s just a joy to watch them stumble and bumble around on this stuff.
Your fake news media in action! – Ask leading question, get answer you wanted to the leading question, spin into negative story about Trump. Wash, rinse and repeat. Whenever there’s a semi-slow news day, or a day in which the news for Trump just shows too much WINNING to report, this is the formula the fake news media uses to generate some new controversy.
So it went with Rudy Giuliani Sunday on ABC’s This Week With George Stephanopoulous, the former Clinton toady who pretends to be a news guy now. When Georgie the Toady asked Giuliani if the President has the power to pardon himself, Rudy gave the correct answer: Yes. See, Rudy’s actually read the Constitution, which very clearly gives any sitting president the power to pardon anyone he wants.
Giuliani went on to say that President Trump has never and would never even consider doing any such thing, but the fake news media had its fake controversy for the day, a controversy that enabled all the fake reporters, fake editors and fake talking heads to change the subject from the booming economy and very encouraging developments on the North Korea front.
Thus, we ended up with an entire afternoon of endless speculation in the fake news media about whether a President who has committed no crimes and has not even been accused of committing any crimes and who his lawyer says has never even entertained the idea is actually planning to pardon himself.
You want to know why the formerly semi-noble profession of journalism is almost dead in this country? This is just one of about 10,000 reasons, but it’s one of the biggest.
Just another day in Fake News Media America.
