On Monday morning, District Attorney George Brauchler, a US Army Reserves JAG officer (lawyer), predicted that we would likely learn that the military justice system did not properly enter information about the Texas killer's Bad Conduct Discharge for domestic assault into the federal NCIC database which is used for federal firearms background checks (among other things.) Later on Monday, we learned that that's exactly what happened.
I know that one can always find an absolutely justifiable way to criticize CNN on any given day. Monday's example was one of the most petty and ridiculous and blatant examples of anti-Trump FAKE NEWS -- actually FAKE something but not even news -- that even this leftist crew has ever produced.
In particular, think about the utter pointlessness of this CNN headline -- on a day when we're talking about 26 dead Americans: "Trump feeds fish, winds up pouring entire box of food into koi pond".
What's so crazy about it is that not only is the story one of the most worthless things I've ever seen, it's also an obvious attempt to criticize the president for...feeding fish wrong? being culturally insensitive?...I don't know what, really. And in fact, you can see the way the Guardian (a leftist British newspaper) chose its "still" for the 30-second video below, showing Trump pouring out his small box of fish food into the koi pond. It turns out that Japan's Prime Minister Abe had dumped his remaining fish food into the pond four seconds earlier. (I timed it.)
Here's the certain-to-win-Pulitzer reporter's final sentence on the drama: "The move got Trump some laughs, and a smile from Abe, who actually appeared to dump out his box of food ahead of Trump."
You can't make this stuff up. And now I sorta feel bad that I even took this much of your time talking about it.
What not to do when you work for a government contractor:
- Flip off the president's motorcade as he's driving by
- Set your Facebook profile page to be a picture of you doing #1
In case the Donna Brazile story didn't end Hillary's role in American public life for good, now we have this:
