Conservatives tend to like to preserve the best of past ages and accumulated wisdom whereas progressives aren’t interested in anything that existed prior to last Thursday. An objective person must admit that journalists, at least, just aren’t what they used to be. Sorry, progs.
To wit: one august member of the Fourth Estate, Ryan Lizza, chief Washington correspondent for Politico, recently put the following comment and question to White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany. "I think a lot of people are trying to understand what his view of memorializing the Confederacy is and the proper place of the Confederate flag. Does President Trump believe that it was a good thing that the South lost the Civil War?" McEnany replied, "Well, your first question is absolutely absurd. He's proud of the United States of America," before quickly moving on to address somewhat less insane questions and inferences.
I don’t care what one thinks of President Trump. Love him, hate him, or still don’t know what to make of him, the holder of his office deserves at least a modicum of respect. But the very same “journalists” (I just threw up a little in my mouth) that “felt thrills going up their legs” as they slobbered all over President Barack Hussein Obama have spent more than three years vilely smearing Trump at every single opportunity. And then some.
No member of the media ever asked Obama if he thought “it was a good thing that the Holocaust ended when it did.”
Why hasn’t a reporter asked Bernie Sanders if he thought “it was a good thing the United States won the Cold War?”
And someone should ask Rep. Alexandria
Occasional-Cortex Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) if she knows who won the
Civil War. Or who George Washington was? Or who is buried in Grant’s Tomb. Or
what two plus three equals.
And Ryan Lizza certainly needs to be asked why he thinks he is a journalist.
