I’m really not sure what kind of bizarre-o version of American politics we’re living in during 2018, but I do know that it’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen before in modern history.
The mainstream media has exemplified my concerns time and time again, turning into a churning cesspool of inaccuracy and frustratingly biased fodder for the masses. They’re brainwashing Americans, plain and simple, and it’s all because our “news” organizations have been corrupted by corporate America’s need for constant consumer interaction. This state of constant change is very much progressivism at it’s most basic, and the advertisers responsible for pushing this agenda on us are not shy about it.
This has also led us down a path of absolute anarchy in the world of journalist integrity, or what’s left of it, with reporters openly admitting to some of the strangest and most irreverent fantasies we’ve ever heard.
First Lady Melania Trump’s Communications Director Stephanie Grisham condemned a “disgusting” Monday tweet from Atlantic Senior Editor David Frum containing a hypothetical situation with President Donald Trump hitting his wife.
Frum went after President Trump, his personal attorney Jay Sekulow, and now former Trump attorney John Dowd in a tweet that asked whether Trump would be obstructing justice if he punched the First Lady and ordered the Secret Service to cover up the assault.
“Suppose President Trump punched the First Lady in the White House (federal property = federal jurisdiction), then ordered the Secret Service to conceal the assault. POTUS has Article II authority over Secret Service,” suggested Frum. “Is that obstruction? Under Sekulow/Dowd, apparently NO.”
That is just plain despicable. One could even consider it deplorable.
Grisham told Breitbart News, “I think that tweet is disgusting on many different levels.”
Media and Internet commentators have developed conspiracy theories and criticisms of the First Lady since she was hospitalized at Walter Reed military medical facility for a routine kidney procedure on May 14. She spent the duration of the week there recovering from the successful treatment. She returned home to the White House that weekend and at that point had received thousands of emailed and phoned in well-wishes, according to the White House.
The medical routine that has the First Lady sidelined has spawned a number of wild conspiracy theories over the last few weeks, but, then again, what doesn’t these days?
