Did you notice the mainstream news media’s absolute glee over the anti-Trump undercurrent at John McCain’s week-long funeral extravaganza?
Oh, how they delighted in the not-so-subtle digs at our sitting President.
Ana Navarro was so excited she was quivering like a spastic colon.
And for a woman like Ana, that kind of quivering actually garners a reading on a Richter scale.
Damn! We’re only two eulogies into the #McCainfuneral, and I keep wondering how Jarvanka haven’t yet slinked out of their seats and crawled on their hands and knees out of that church.

It's remarkable how bad they are at pretending these McCain memorials are an authentic outpouring of bipartisan sorrow from DC rather than just the millionth astroturfed anti-Trump media circus this year. pic.twitter.com/mRRJnIKnWx

Bush, Obama eulogize McCain with criticism of current politics, subtle swipe at Trump https://t.co/ljYGNLZBmW

They loved it!
In fact, they were eagerly hoping for it.
Which was kinda the point of focusing all their attention on the passing of John McCain to begin with. It was all about attacking Donald Trump.
And all those not-so-subtle digs were celebrated with breathless enthusiasm.
Well, it didn’t take long for the media to realize that high-fiving each other over the anti-Trump rally disguised as a funeral was not well received by a large portion of the country.
And yesterday – less than 24 hours after cheering on the Trump hate-fest, the news media deployed Operation Walk Back.
I re-read all the speeches from McCain’s funeral. Nobody attacked Trump. They *praised* honor, decency, character, bipartisanship, and placing country over party. What does it say about Trump that so many people interpreted this as an assault on him personally?

If you thought the eulogies were taking petty digs at Donald Trump, it’s your fault, not theirs.
Sure they were applauding the petty digs on Saturday. But now they want you to believe that the petty digs were all in your head.
And what does it say about you that you thought – even for a moment – that they were attacking the sitting President?
They're trying to walk it back because it's dawning on them that they pulled another Wellstone. Remember, the politicized funeral that helped cost the Dems a midterm win against a first-term president they hated? https://t.co/sd3KCjwjmZ

Operation Walk Back is the result of what I have called Operation Backfire.
Everything these anti-Trump douche-nozzles do goes too far.
They get so wrapped up in their own presumed cleverness they end up pushing too hard.
And, inevitably, it backfires on them in a big, BIG way.
You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know they would have to walk back their celebrations.
If you think taking a 2×4 to the face is subtle, then sure, they were subtle swipes.
Just like the Wellstone Memorial, this is so gonna backfire on them. https://t.co/Dec0CGxL2z

Everything backfires on them.
When you live in a bubble, completely unaware of the world at large, you inevitably misread the mood of the rest of the country.
Spending a solid week deifying John McCain in order to attack President Trump was bound to backfire.
And turning his “memorial service” into “the biggest resistance meeting yet” only hastened the inevitable backlash.
So naturally they have to walk back their own sneering delight.
I sure called it.
Watch them backpedal today and deny the funeral had anything at all to do with Trump despite the fact they were delightedly shrieking about how it was all about dissing Trump yesterday.
They Wellstoned, and now they know it.
It's funny. https://t.co/ajA31LgLMd

Saturday’s display was petty, vindictive, passive/aggressive and meanspirited.
But it also served as a glaring reminder of why we rejected this so-called “political elite” in the first place.
And this close to the 2018 Midterms, such a reminder will only further embolden us to reject these condescending, insufferable prats once again.
But, as usual, the media didn’t realize their mistake until well after the horse escaped the barn.
Sadly for them this idiotic attempt to walk it all back isn’t going to work.
How quickly CNN went from RIGHT ON! STICK IT TO THE TRUMPTARDS to…
Think they are just now realizing how awful they looked applauding partisan shots at a funeral? pic.twitter.com/QkcRkGKITA
