Well, Ol’ Barry Obama went out to the Rose Garden to speechify his new plan to kill all white children and let Mexican children have their homes, and then this guy, Neil Munro of Tucker Carlson’s treasured Daily Caller, interrupts him to start babbling something. Obama hates this person but responds anyway. Now people are all yelling at the Daily Caller for its classlessness, how this will hurt its “reputation,” etc. etc. Oh, please. This was a great PR thing that Tucker Carlson did for his little website and your ethical rebukes will only make him happier. Pure bad faith, baby, that’s how we roll in the Greatest Country In The History Of The World these days.
He’ll get a wider audience and Neil Munro will catapult to instant wingnut fame and be on all the teevee shows. It was a successful move for Tucker Carlson’s business — trolling the president with nonsense just to get attention — and criticizing him as a very poor journalist indeed! is a waste of one’s time. All political media is bullshit and campaign “journalism” doesn’t exist and everyone’s responsible for it, and so of course there’s a troll. He’s made it big now. Maybe he’ll land a reality show someday down the road. Mothers, raise your kids to be shits, because there’s money yet to wring out of this country.
UPDATE: Wow, this guy should be the official goddamn mascot of DC, the way he just throws out easily disprovable lies without hesitation. Every reporter sitting around him has said that there was absolutely no indication that Obama was wrapping up his speech when Munro began trolling him.
“I always go to the White House prepared with questions for our president. I timed the question believing the president was closing his remarks, because naturally I have no intention of interrupting the President of the United States. I know he rarely takes questions before walking away from the podium. When I asked the question as he finished his speech, he turned his back on the many reporters, and walked away while I and at least one other reporter asked questions.”
So, Tucker, your reporter is either (a) a blatant liar when he says he had no intention of interrupting the president and thought the speech had ended or (b) such a stupid, incompetent employee that he can’t tell when a presidential speech he’s covering is ending (especially since prepared remarks are usually distributed beforehand). What is your reporter, Tucker? Is he a liar, or is he stupid? If only you could have one of each.Related
