[Ed. – Imagine how much more tolerable daily life would be if the media were fair.]
Earlier this week, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany lamented that the media won’t “take [President Trump] at his word.” The guffaws inside the Beltway reached decibel levels that would make Metallica band members cover their ears.
This same week, former Obama administration national security adviser Susan Rice, a Democrat notorious for her lack of credibility, was back in the news. Unsurprisingly, the media are all too happy to take Rice at her word regarding new information about her role in the controversial prosecution of former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn. It was all a reminder, as if any was needed, that you can tell all the tall tales you want and make the most implausible assertions, and the media won’t care so long as they are at Donald Trump’s expense.
