It was all kinds of entertaining yesterday watching the news media fall all over themselves with slobbering glee over the now-discredited Buzzfeed story that Trump told Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about something that isn’t illegal.
On its face the story seemed, well, a tad far-fetched.
But the media – in their never-ending quest to “get Trump” – couldn’t be bothered to stop and verify the allegation. And, boy, did they make fools of themselves.
I don’t expect any different from them. I said before Trump was even inaugurated that the media was hell-bent on delegitimizing his election no matter what. Even if that meant rushing to “report” on allegations based on “unnamed sources” that include zero confirmation.
But it was the reaction of Democrat members of Congress that really made me shake my head in disbelief.
In short, they made idiots of themselves. Because just like the news media, elected members of Congress are willing to suspend disbelief if it confirms their hatred for Donald Trump.
Newly minted Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff was quick to put out a statement. Because “intelligence” and Buzzfeed are practically synonymous.
And then there was Congressman Ted Lieu (Idiot, CA) who, after once again reminding us that he is a “former prosecutor” leapt all over the Buzzfeed story like a starved dog on a carcass.
Oddly enough, neither Schiff nor Lieu have tweeted any sort of retraction now that the Special Counsel’s office has debunked the garbage Buzzfeed story.
In fact, the last tweet Adam Schiff sent out was the one above.
Funny how that happens.
They were super quick to jump on the Buzzfeed story.
But now that it’s shown to be trash, suddenly they have more important things to do than walk back their over-eager, salivating tweets.
I wonder if they learned that from their Twitter tutorial with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
And then there’s Democrat Joaquin Castro (also of the Intelligence Committee). He gobbled up the Buzzfeed story with such wild abandon, I’m surprised he didn’t need someone to perform the Heimlich Maneuver on him.
And if “Ifs” and “buts” were candy and nuts we’d all have a Merry Christmas.
Is it a prerequisite for Democrats who serve on the Intelligence Committee to be completely lacking in intelligence?
But it wasn’t just Democrats in the House who tripped all over their pud.
Democrat Senators also fell into the Buzzfeed buzz saw.
Like Da Nang Dick.
And just like his Democrat colleagues Lieu, Schiff and Castro, Da Nang Dick has not yet tweeted a correction.
Honestly, were these guy born without the Embarrassment Gene?
They’ve been burned by so many false reports in the garbage media, you’d think by now they’d tread with caution.
But no. They just keep setting their hair on fire and making idiots of themselves.
We haven’t seen this level of breathless hysteria over a fake story since Orson Welles’ infamous “War of the Worlds” radio broadcast in 1938.
For people who love to mock Trump-supporting Americans for being gullible and stupid, they sure are gullible and stupid.
Wait for facts?
Not a chance, Bryan.
These Guardians of “Democracy” don’t give a crap about facts, evidence or the truth.
All they care about is destroying the President of the United States – even if that means peddling fake news, innuendo and rumor.
I doubt Ted Lieu feels like an idiot because he is congenitally incapable of serious thought or self-reflection.
Is it Trump Derangement Syndrome that has turned these people into mindless cranks?
Or, is it just their factory default?
Hard to say.
But one thing’s certain.
Their mission to delegitimize our President has done far more to damage our democratic process and the health of our Republic than anything Vladimir Putin would ever attempt to do.
They really are garbage.
