Hysterical Headlines (Funny or Absurd) for July 17th – WTF & Stuff!!!
Bottom Line: Your daily doses of nonsense in the media and my takes on them...
Trump questions US intel, not Putin, on Russia 2016 meddling - Miami Herald
Hot Take: I'm waiting for the first honest "journalist" who finally comes out with the truth and admits that they simply hate the guy. First of all, this headline is absolutely false – Putin stated that President Trump once again pressed him on interference and he denied it. Does it bother you even a little to advance something so false or does this fall into the blinded by hate category? Now where this stems from is the presser where he said that he has faith in American intelligence agencies but that Putin strongly denied interference. What's ironic is that President Trump did a better job of pragmatically reporting the facts of what happened at the summit than the journalists tasked with covering it.
And now it's time to freak out!
What We Know About Trump and Putin Is Damning Ezra Klein, Vox
Trump, Treasonous Traitor Charles Blow, New York Times
Trump and Putin vs. America Thomas Friedman, New York Times
And there it is...But Rush put it best yesterday...
Except that I might question the becoming characterization. That's perhaps generous at this point.
