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.
