Fake news? It’s real. I mean, there really is such a thing as fake news.
So why not some fake commentary? And your Squire just the man for the job!
Acceding to the wishes of the indentured servants here at The Stately Manor, we fired up the old Philco Monday and endured an orgy of cable TV talking heads, panelists, and bloviators. Hey, if The Capital Times can claim that it is their opinion that various and sundry Koch Brothers have been silencing free speech on our college campuses than the proprietor of the Policy Werkes (express drive-thru windows are open) can conjure his.
The fake news of the day is that Donald Trump gave Alaska back to the Russians.
No? What? Oh, sorry. The fake news was that the President gave Natasha and Boris the Colonel’s secret recipe, along with a cereal box decoder ring.
Apparently something to do with how ISIS brought down a Russian plane over Chaldea. Not how we got the info or from whom but newsy bits that might help Russia beat back ISIS, which might also help the U.S. and the people of Chaldea.
That such information is and remains classified does not mean it cannot be shared, only that it cannot be shared indiscriminately. That Russia and the U.S. might have common interests was broached during the late election campaign. Donald Trump won. He is the President, despite your Squire’s efforts for Evan (Who?) McMullen.
He is the decider.
But CNN (once dubbed the Clinton News Network) is rousting every Obama operative for some high-level hyperventilation. Take a look at this line-up on the CNN website and know that the prolific use of the word “some” is here largely a synonym for Democrats when it’s not actually naming Democrats in the headline.
- Disclosure of classified info has some wondering whether Trump is in over his head
- Some disagree on whether Trump went over the line
- Cillizza: Only 2 explanations for this. Neither is good.
- Defiant Trump tweets defense of disclosure
- Panetta: Trump needs grown-ups around him
- Pelosi reacts to impeachment talk
- Opinion: The little boy president
- State Dept. left in the dark about Tillerson’s statement
- Ghitis: Trump’s dangerous incompetence
- WATCH LIVE Rep. Nancy Pelosi appears at liberal think-tank’s conference
You know CNN has the long knives sharpened when it makes a news story out of a foul-mouthed late-night TV comedian’s pronouncement: “Colbert to Trump: Please resign.” Steven Col-BERTTT is not Walter Cronkite.
Did FDR share military intel with Stalin? Yes he did!
