What’s the old saying? “Laughter is the best medicine.” But for our mirthless news media, laughter, amusement, fun, pleasure, even joie de vivre, is quite beyond them.
These guys really need to be injected with a dose of fun.
Yesterday President Trump tweeted out this Daily Wire Photoshop:
And our mirthless news media pretended not to get the joke. At least I hope they were pretending. Something tells me, however, that they really are this humorless and obtuse.
Huffington Post’s White House Correspondent S.V. Dáte tweeted the image saying, “Fine, just the president of the United States disseminating a doctored image created by a right-wing propaganda site.”
“Disseminating.” As if President Trump is trying to pass this off as an actual photo.
Good grief, either these guys are idiots or they think we are.
Twitter “moments” included this gem:
It’s “altered?!” Say it ain’t so!!
I’m sorry. But who outside of our Trump-hating media needed this confirmed by the New York Times?
That so-called “highly respected” Paper of Record felt the need to write an entire article (written by not one, but two reporters) about what is obviously a ‘Shop image.
As did the Washington Post.
Democracy dies in mirthless darkness.
“How dare the President tweet out what is clearly a doctored image!!! This is unconscionable! IMPEACH!!!!”
Okay, that’s the best, most hilarious response ever.
I cannot imagine going through life as humorless as our mirthless news media.
Clearly Trump Derangement Syndrome eats away the part of the brain that allows one to find the fun in life.
Last night on Twitter, Ben Shapiro shared a screen capture of the email the Washington Post’s mirthless reporter Alex Horton sent Shapiro’s business partner Jeremy Boreing requesting comment on the photo:
He also shared Boreing’s succinct response:
And how did Alex Horton write up Boreing’s response in the mirthless Washington Post’s piece?
Jeremy Boreing, the chief operating officer at the Daily Wire, dismissed emailed questions about whether the altered photo originated from his publication.
Actually, Alex. He didn’t dismiss the question. But I do think he was dismissing you.
The New York Times went so far as to determine which Medal of Honor winner was the victim of this devious Photoshop image in order to get a comment from him.
But unlike our mirthless news media, MoH winner Jason McCloughlan found the fun in it.
Do these idiots think going all-hands-on-deck over this lighthearted tweet makes Trump look bad?
Because it doesn’t it doesn’t make Trump look bad.
It does, however, make our mirthless news media look like the biggest, most humorless prats on the planet.
