Would you like to see Fake News? I mean—not just Fake News. But pure unadulterated horseshit? Here you go. Fresh from this afternoon with the Daily Beast.
A photo made the rounds last night of a bunch of high school boys wearing Mitch McConnell t-shirts kissing, “choking,” and giving the thumbs-down to a cardboard cutout of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. It, of course, was stupid and idiotic. And of course AOC made an issue of it since she is the queen of Passive-Aggressive Victimhood.
Mitch McConnell’s re-election team responded, saying these were high schoolers, not members of their campaign staff. “Team Mitch in no way condones any aggressive, suggestive, or demeaning act toward life-sized cardboard cutouts of any gender.”
Enter the Daily Beast. Their headline said something that McConnell’s campaign not only did not say…but did not even IMPLY. (see below)
Of course, the sub-moronic AOC re-tweeted the article using the fabricated phrase, “Boys will be Boys.” And the reliably-shitty Newsweek followed up with a story on AOC’s re-tweet of a quote THAT WAS NEVER SAID!
Within hours “Boys will be Boys” will be trending on Twitter…it will be the go-to phrase for Feminist rage-harpies as they rail against Mitch McConnell…it will trigger PTSD in people who still think Brett Kavanaugh was a serial rapist.
And nothing will happen. Tomorrow, another suck-ass media outlet will follow the Dan Rather Principle and try to discern motivations, rather than merely reporting facts. They will falsely attribute words to a (conservative) source—and we’ll do the same effing thing on Thursday, Friday, etc. etc.
And liberals will be mystified as to why no one trusts the media.
