Pompeo: Public Shaming Will Continue Until Morale Improves

Our thin-skinned top diplomat and Rapture enthusiast Mike Pompeo continues to show us the stuff he is made of:

“Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s quarrel with NPR escalated on Monday after one of the radio network’s reporters was barred from flying on the secretary’s plane during an upcoming trip to Ukraine.

Pompeo ordered Michele Kelemen’s diplomatic press credential to be revoked, which is totally what the dude trying to represent American Values to the rest of the world would do, you know, because freedom of the press. But I interrupted. Do continue.

“Michele Kelemen, a veteran reporter for the network, was removed from the list of reporters allowed to fly with Pompeo on a trip to Eastern Europe, only days after the secretary reportedly exploded at another NPR reporter for asking questions about Ukraine.

“I Am NOT Spartacus,” the press didn’t howl back at him as they pack their bags to get on the plane. Shocking, I know.

The State Department Correspondents’ Association swiftly condemned the move in a statement on Monday.

“‘Michele is a consummate professional who has covered the State Department for nearly two decades,’ the statement said. ‘We respectfully ask the State Department to reconsider and allow Michele to travel on the plane for this trip.’ … The State Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.”

And, you know, backing him up is Prznint Stupid who seeks the media like a bear seeks honey:

I feel like we need to set up a betting pool for how long before Pompeo chucks it all and runs for the Senate from Kansastan.

  1. Mark Levin seems to not understand that Radio Station != Radio Program. And how I long for the Internet Dick Punch service, so I could arrange one every time some drooling GP moron refers to it as “The Democrat Party”. We might be able to break them of this nonsense if such a thing existed.

      Although I would gladly pay a hefty subscription price for an internet crotch punt service (yes women can be assholes too). It’s probably more effective to just co-opt it and own it. After all, it’s only worth saying if it pisses Democrats off.

        Getting vocally pissed off just feeds the trolls. It’s the same idea as that “sticks and stones” vs. “words” saying, how did it go, now?

    TG – I think Mike officially dropped out of the race for “Distinguished Senator From the Great State of Cans-ass”, and it’s now too late to re-apply for ballot space. I have a few friends who live in that great state, and ALL breathed a YUGE sigh of relief when he did so; they knew full well what a bullet they had dodged.

    Why does this Mark Levin still exist? Why do we need a Mark Levin?

    It was a necessary move.

    It is bad enough how Michele Kelemen questions the administration on it;s machinations in the Ukraine. No doubt if they took Michele along on a fact-finding trip to the Ukraine, her Ukraine-based questions would become egregious..

    MDavis – I think it went, “Sticks & stones may break my bones, but whips & chains excite me.”
    That’s what a friend told me, anyway.

    I’ll have to start telling trolls “You should meet Dennis, he’s a lot more fun to troll than I am.”
