Hysterical Media Headlines (Funny or Absurd) for August 15th:
Bottom Line: These are your daily headlines brought to you by your friends in the Godless, soulless and slanderous news media...For my full commentary on these headlines click the audio below.
Why Won't Trump Call Out Radical White Terrorism? Jeffrey Goldberg, The Atlantic
Charlottesville and the Bigotocracy Michael Eric Dyson, New York Times
Excerpt: Our fatal forgetfulness flares when white bigots come out of their closets, emboldened by the tacit cover they’re given by our president. We cannot pretend that the ugly bigotry unleashed in the streets of Charlottesville, Va., this weekend has nothing to do with the election of Donald Trump.
North Korea, Trump and the Ticking Doomsday Clock Lawrence Krauss, LA Times
Excerpt: On Jan. 26, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, whose board of sponsors I chair, reset its Doomsday Clock to 2 minutes, 30 seconds to midnight, the closest it has been to midnight in more than 60 years. At the time, two of the factors we mentioned in making our decision were the ominous developments in North Korea, and the frivolous and dangerous language the new American president had employed before his inauguration regarding nuclear weapons and nuclear war.
Republicans, Kick the Bigots Out Bill Scher, RealClearPolitics
News flash, the KKK was founded by Democrats and maintained by Democrats...and the white socialist movement? That could not be more politically opposite from right leaning politics. Illustrating the point quite clearly was the election cycle last year. The white socialist running for President, Bernie Sanders, ran as a Democrat.
Trump's Business of Corruption Adam Davidson, The New Yorker
Excerpt: What secrets will Mueller find when he investigates the President’s foreign deals?
When the President Is Un-American Paul Krugman, New York Times
The material here is amazing and wonderful in it's absurdity simultaneously. Once again, if you look at these through the prism of Donald Trump being President, and more elected Republicans serving in the United States since the 1920's...it's pretty hilarious! The air of desperation, advocacy and instructions for their "resistance" is comical. These people really do take themselves completely seriously!
