CNN: President Trump Has Spent His Whole Life Bullshitting
Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge, Mar 18 2017
With the “Russians are to blame” narrative fading due to lack of any evidence, it appears CNN has turned back to ad hominem attack ‘reporting’ on the Trump administration. CNN Tonight network host Farid Zakaria proclaimed magnanimously that Pres Trump has succeeded only by bullshitting. He said:
I think the president is somewhat indifferent to things that are true or false. He has spent his whole life bullshitting. He has succeeded by bullshitting. He has gotten the presidency by bullshitting. It’s very hard to tell somebody at that point that bullshit doesn’t work because look at results. Right? But that’s what he does. He sees something, he doesn’t particularly care if it’s true or not, just puts it out there and then he puts something else out. Notice again at the press conference, when pushed on it, doesn’t take responsibility. “I wasn’t saying that, just quoting somebody else.” When you have the White House press secretary quote somebody to prove a point, you’re endorsing that view.
It appears Zakaria has not been paying attention to the constant stream of lies, hypocrisy, and narrative-confirming half-truths that his network and most of Pindostan’s politicians have been spewing for what seems like years now. It’s different this time, though.
