In The News

                                                              In the News

*Reporters/writers for the U.K.’s Guardian newspaper have been told not to use the term “Climate change.” They have been instructed to use the phrases “climate emergency,” “climate crisis,” and “climate breakdown” instead. Love that objective, unbiased media. There actually is a “journalistic emergency,” a “reportorial crisis,” and an “integrity breakdown” among the mainstream media.

*CNN anchor and “Cuomo Prime Time” host Chris Cuomo gave a pep talk to 2020 Democratic presidential candidates recently, telling them that, when they get to the convention, they should “all organize themselves into a slate, a truly united front.” He averred that voters shouldn’t just be voting for the president and vice-president, but should also be “picking an attorney general, secretary of defense, treasury secretary, whatever they can fill out in a responsible way,” adding that “at least you would have people being vetted in a real way” by the media. Love that objective, unbiased media.

*MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace apparently has a crush on Beto O’Rourke. And his Democratic comrades. During an “interview” with O’Rourke, Wallace asked him, “What can we do better for those of us covering your candidates far away from where the first votes will be cast in Iowa and New Hampshire?” I guess if you are a Democrat, you are allowed to say, “Ask not what we can do for the media, ask what the media can do for us.” Even more incredibly, Wallace told O’Rourke: “I’ll leave you with some free advice. Grab Garrett, who is NBC’s correspondent on your campaign, and tell him what’s on your mind.” She continued fawning, stating: “If you don’t like the coverage, you can change it. You’re the candidate.” before effusively thanking O’Rourke for appearing with her, at which point Beto cheerfully—literally-- waved goodbye. Call me a skeptic, but I’m guessing she wouldn’t have asked President Trump how she and her fellow media members could better serve him. Love that objective, unbiased mainstream media.

*Beto O’Rourke also recently released a video of himself getting a haircut in an attempt to reboot his run for the presidential nomination in 2020. This comes after he posted a video of himself at the dentist. In this newest video, he specifically pointed out that he was having his “nasty” ear hair trimmed. If this somehow gives him a bump in the polls, expect New York Mayor Bill de Blasio to post a video of his recent manicure. Not to be outdone, Joe Biden would then soon be forced to post a pic of himself cutting his toenails. Kamala Harris might then be maneuvered into posting a video of her Brazilian. At which point Peter Buttigieg would have no alternative but to post a video of himself “manscaping” his groin region. Yikes!

*South Bend Mayor Peter (Paul Montgomery) Buttigieg says things named after Thomas Jefferson should be renamed due to his holding slaves. But, who are we to judge? He also says his last name should be pronounced “Boot-edge-edge” or “Buddha-judge.” Perhaps Mayor Buttigieg should consider renaming……himself. But, who are we to Buddha-judge?
