Mad ge­nius of Trump drives school­marms of po­lit­i­cal press crazy

The Washington Times Weekly - - Commentary - BY CHARLES HURT

Oh, the mad ge­nius of Don­ald Trump! On the cusp of one of the big­gest vic­to­ries of his ad­min­is­tra­tion, crack­ing down on il­le­gal aliens who com­mit vi­cious crimes in­side our coun­try, Pres­i­dent Trump took to Twit­ter.

“I heard poorly rated @Morn­ing_Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch any­more). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psy­cho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and in­sisted on join­ing me. She was bleed­ing badly from a face-lift. I said no!”

The only thing miss­ing from this elec­tronic pres­i­den­tial ad­dress was the Marine Band play­ing “Hail to the Chief.”

She was bleed­ing badly. Face-lift. Low I.Q. Psy­cho Joe.

It is all so de­li­cious. Mer­ci­lessly in­ven­tive. Joy­ously vi­cious. Like an en­tire sea­son of pro wrestling drama, all sewn up into two lit­tle Twit­ter mes­sages.

The Trump pres­i­dency is a lit­tle like hav­ing a dog. Ev­ery day that passes, you love the dog more and more un­til it seems im­pos­si­ble to love her any more.

But — sadly — ev­ery day also brings that nag­ging dread that one day she will be gone, seven times sooner than she should. What will we do when it is all over? There will never be an­other dog like her (sad face).

Of course, the pu­ri­tan­i­cal school­marms of the po­lit­i­cal press went ab­so­lutely bonkers over Mr. Trump’s broad­side of their fel­low trav­el­ers. They scolded him that his Twit­ter mis­sives were be­neath the of­fice of the pres­i­dent.

Re­ally, you mean like mo­lest­ing an in­tern in the Oval Of­fice? “Pres­i­den­tial” like that?

MSNBC — the af­ter­thought ca­ble chan­nel that airs “Morn­ing Joe” — re­sponded on Twit­ter: “It’s a sad day for Amer­ica when the pres­i­dent spends his time bul­ly­ing, ly­ing and spew­ing petty per­sonal attacks in­stead of do­ing his job.”

But the funny thing about it is that no­body ac­tu­ally dis­proved any­thing that Mr. Trump al­leged. Just like Rus­sia and ob­struc­tion of jus­tice and ev­ery­thing else, there is not one sin­gle shred of ev­i­dence that Mr. Trump is not 100 per­cent in the right.

“The Ama­zon Post” — the pa­per-ofrecord for Never Trumpers — rushed to the de­fense of Mika Brzezin­ski and Joe Scar­bor­ough with a laugh­ably il­log­i­cal and twisted ex­pla­na­tion.

“The no­tion that Brzezin­ski and Scar­bor­ough were des­per­ate to hang out with Trump on New Year’s Eve but were re­buffed seems du­bi­ous, at best,” re­porter Cal­lum Borchers wrote on the pa­per’s web­site.

“For one thing, the New York Times spot­ted the co-hosts at Trump’s New Year’s Eve party at Mar-a-Lago.”

So, wait a minute? The proof that Mr. Trump is ly­ing about Ms. Brzezin­ski and Mr. Scar­bor­ough slum­ming around Mar-a-Lago around New Year’s Eve is that — well — Ms. Brzezin­ski and Mr. Scar­bor­ough were slum­ming around Mar-a-Lago around New Year’s Eve?

Oof. Mr. Borchers prob­a­bly learned this in jour­nal­ism school. He should have gone to logic school in­stead.

But the cor­re­spon­dent was still not fin­ished chang­ing di­a­pers for Ms. Brzezin­ski and Mr. Scar­bor­ough.

“For an­other,” Mr. Borchers writes, “Scar­bor­ough fol­lowed the re­port of their ap­pear­ance [of Brzezin­ski and Scar­bor­ough slum­ming around Mara-Lago around New Year’s Eve] by an­grily protest­ing any sug­ges­tion that he and Brzezin­ski were try­ing to cozy up to the pres­i­dent-elect.”

Let’s put this in terms the young re­porter might un­der­stand: O-M-G.

Then Mr. Borchers goes on to ac­cuse Mr. Trump of a “bla­tantly sex­ist at­tack” on Ms. Brzezin­ski be­cause the pres­i­dent called her “un­in­tel­li­gent.”

Whoa! You mean that ac­cus­ing some­one of be­ing “low I.Q.” is the equiv­a­lent of calling them fe­male?

You might want to get a lit­tle “woke” to mod­ern times.

Ms. Brzezin­ski (that would be she of “low I.Q.” and “crazy”), mean­while, proved her­self en­tirely wor­thy of Mr. Trump’s tirade by at­tack­ing the size of his manhood on Twit­ter.

I wish I were mak­ing that up, but that is what she did.

She posted a pic­ture of a Chee­rios box with a small child reach­ing a tiny fin­ger out for a lit­tle toasted Chee­rio. The box reads: “Made for Lit­tle Hands.” Get it? Such classy peo­ple. And they have been a re­spected part of the es­tab­lish­ment for years. Don­ald Trump just got here.

Oh, one last thing. What about the bloody face-lift? No one seems to be ad­dress­ing the is­sue of her traips­ing around Mar-a-Lago bleed­ing from a face-lift.

Ei­ther way, Mika, you should ask for your money back. Charles Hurt can be reached at churt@wash­ing­ton­times.com and on Twit­ter by @charleshurt.
