The Washington Post defended an MSNBC host who suggested on air that President Donald J. Trump’s Press Secretary should have her neck wrung.
“Nobody advocated for Sanders being choked,” wrote Aaron Blake in a fact check piece of Sarah Huckabee Sander’s claims from this week. “MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace (whose show I have appeared on, full disclosure) didn’t call for choking Sanders, but instead asked a reporter if she ever wanted to ‘wring’ Sanders’s neck out of frustration.”
Just to make the facts are straight, according to the Post it is perfectly fine to suggest that Sanders’ neck be rung, just as long there is no directive issued to actually wring her neck.
“How do you resist the temptation to run up and wring her neck?” asked Nicolle Wallace, MSNBC’s token GOP establishment host and former communications staffer for Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), asked a panel.
In Washington Post world, this rhetoric is perfectly normal and befitting of a cable news anchor.
Blake also found the claim by Sanders that has-been Washington Post columnist and #NeverTrump lunatic Jennifer Rubin called for her “lifelong harassment” to be untrue.
“Rubin said nothing directly about people “harassing” Sanders, although she did say being ‘uncomfortable’ should be a ‘life sentence’ for Sanders, for ‘lying’ and ‘inciting’ people against the press,” Blake wrote.
According to Blake, harassment and discomfort are totally different. They are not alike in any way. To prove otherwise, Big League Politics used a dictionary:
Obfuscation and weasel-wording is the precise method used by the mainstream press on a daily basis to subtly push their leftist agenda and lies. Consequently, it is also the reason why Americans loathe the mainstream press.
Blake’s latest piece is a perfect example.
Media Lied: President Trump Did Not Claim Operation Desert Storm Occurred During the Vietnam War
The corporate media has been peddling an edited clip.
The mainstream media falsely reported that President Donald Trump confused the setting of ‘Operation Desert Storm,’ a military name for the 1990 Gulf War, during a July 4th speech on the White House lawn on Sunday. The media accused President Trump of falsely stating that Desert Storm was a military operation that took place during the Vietnam War.
Liberals associated with political organizations such as the Lincoln Project and media groups such as PoliticusUSA displayed edited video clips and made dishonest claims that the President had conflated Operation Desert Storm and the Vietnam war, hoping to score a partisan political point.
Trump just said we fought Operation Desert Storm in the jungles of Vietnam, but please tell us again which Presidential candidate lacks cognitive functions.

In contrast to the claims of partisan liberals, President Trump clearly drew a distinction between combat operations in Vietnam and in Kuwait in 1990, having referred to the events in successive fashion.

Other mainstream media pundits and journalists shared claims that Trump had made the mistake, going on to delete their false claims after the erroneous nature of the claim became apparent on social media. Twitter ultimately ended up labeling the claims that the President conflated the two as “manipulated media,” possibly hoping to score credibility with conservatives by executing the bare minimum of content moderation as the platform rampantly censors the free speech of President Trump, conservatives, and right-wingers.
A reporter from MSNBC is yet to delete her tweet falsely accusing the President of confusing Desert Storm and Vietnam, even after the clip she originally retweeted has been delete in acknowledgment of its dishonesty.
Operation Desert Storm…in the jungles of…Vietnam. https://t.co/QEr698vhJ4
