As Trump visits the UK, we get another nasty display by a media that’s lost track of simple journalism.
First, some hack told the president about an anti-Trump rant by Duchess Meghan. Trump, clearly and obviously referring to the comments, said he didn’t know she was nasty – to him. The press portrayed it as Trump calling her nasty. Sorry: not the same.
Then the media erupts after Trump calls the London mayor a loser. But – that was after the mayor called him a bigot.
Trump also said the mayor was as dumb as NYC Mayor di Blasio, but half as tall. That’s funny.
In fact, this whole thing’s funny – when hysteria meets the hysterical.
Because times are good when front page news isn’t war, but a silly feud.
Me? I’d rather have a volatile president presiding over good times, than a boring president presiding over bad.
The rise of the Brexit party – made possible by the media’s blanket smear of the average Brit – has now made that their Trump.
Meanwhile Sky News touts … A balloon.
When your analysis is reduced to a blow-up toy, maybe London’s adults have finally left the building.
But that’s our media and its European clones – always wrong on the big things.
It comes down to the media’s three favorite words: “We know best.” And the three words that they will never say that could save them: “We were wrong.”
So they protest Trump as populism sweeps their country. It’s something everyone sees, but them. The rise of the Brexit party – made possible by the media’s blanket smear of the average Brit – has now made that their Trump.
So the island feels smaller. A place where not just Trump isn’t welcome – but John Cleese, Morrissey, Johnny Rotten … hell, half the country.
And when Trump is gone and they bathe in nostalgia for their own days of hate, all they’ll have is their stupid balloon.
