Happy Hour News Briefs
Eiron, the Goddess of Irony, laughed so hard she farted: Fact-free Todd Starnes, the guy who told us that rainbow colored Doritos is gonna make kids gay, is now complaining about fake news:
“President Trump is getting quite a bit of blow back for saying the fake news media is the enemy of the American people. And most of the blow back is coming from the fake news media.
“The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!” he tweeted.
“…The fact of the matter is the Mainstream Media truly is the enemy of We The People — they hold us in contempt — treating us like we’re a bunch of backwater bigots. I illustrate that point extensively in my new book, The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great Again.
I bet you do, Toddie.
Grifters Gotta Grift: notice how subtly Starnes works a plug for his lates book into his column? That’s art. That is a master at the peak of his mid-season form.
“…To be honest, though, I have a problem with the term “fake news.” I believe we ought to call it what it really is — lying.”
Sweet Jeebus, Run For It! Eiron is gonna blow!
