literally paid to lie to people, for a job

Let’s talk about a hero this morning! His name is Brian Karem, and he is a White House reporter who writes for DC area regional papers, and also for Playboy, and he is TIRED OF SARAH HUCKABEE SANDERS’S SHIT. So Tuesday, during one of the only televised press briefings we’ve had lately (guess Steve Bannon decided nobody was too fat that day to appear on camera), he decided to tell Ms. Shuckabee what he thinks of this White House’s constant smearing of real journalists as fake news, all while the Fake-Newser-In-Chief is still allowed to spread his orange butt cheeks all over the Oval Office. He was not having her crap about “unnamed sources,” or her complaints about how CNN did the right thing when the network fucked up a Trump-Russia story, by accepting resignations from the three journalists involved in the publication of the story. Here’s what Karem said:

 

KAREM: You’re inflaming everybody right here, right now, with those words. This administration has done that as well. Why in the name of heavens — any one of us … are replaceable, and any one of us, if we don’t get it right, the audience has the opportunity to turn the channel or not read us. YOU have been elected to serve four years at least, there’s no option other than that. We’re here to ask you questions, you’re here to provide the answers, and what you just did is inflammatory to people all over the country who look at it and say, “See once again, the president is right, and everybody else out here is fake media.” And everybody out here in this room is only trying to DO THEIR JOB.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded, but it doesn’t matter what she said because it was just more of the maundering bullshit we’re used to from the Trump White House. Oh no, are we FAKE NEWS-ING HER by failing to report on her splendid and true words? Oh well, long hair, don’t care.

But what’s stunning about this is that, in this very same briefing where she was complaining about fake news, she encouraged people to watch the new video from noted con artist “journalist” James O’Keefe about how CNN is fake news, you know the one where he secretly videotaped the guy who cuts the grass on CNN’s front lawn saying he thinks the Trump-Russia story is bullshit. Now, to be fair and balanced to the Shuckster, she said she doesn’t know if O’Keefe’s video is accurate or not, but everybody should watch it anyway. You got that? “Fake news” — you know, the kind done by real journalists who petulantly refuse to tongue-bathe Donald Trump’s grundle bumps — is bad, now please go watch some ACTUAL fake news:

I don’t know that it’s that the response isn’t good enough for the president. I think it’s the constant barrage of fake news that is directed at this president, probably, that has garnered a lot of his frustration. You point to that report; there are multiple other instances where that outlet that you referenced has been repeatedly wrong and had to point that out or had to correct it. There’s a video circulating now — whether it’s accurate or not, I don’t know — but I would encourage everyone in this room and, frankly, everybody across the country to take a look at it. I think if it is accurate, I think it’s a disgrace to all of media, to all of journalism.

Holy shit, that is horrifying.

Anyway, everyone, have a nice day, because this kind of behavior from the White House is totally normal and definitely how America is supposed to be.

        The Trump Hotels do have fake vanity awards from a company that sells them. Even listed on the official campaign website as a legit achievement. Company is run by a fellow with a very shady past who has a Trump Tower office. When asked, Mr. Trump has said he barely knows the guy. Which explains why he’s been invited to the Trump New Year’s Heave Party for the past twenty or so years.

      J. Kenneth Blackwell told everyone he played for the Dallas Cowboys when he was a walk-on tryout who never made it past the first cut. He was a member of a nonprofit group that supported the team, but all he had to do for that was pony up the membership fee.

      He had a Cowboys gimmee cap on the shelf in the back window so people following him could see it.

    You know what is a disgrace to journalism? The constant barrage of stories claiming Hillary Clinton had done something vaguely wrong with her perfectly legal email servers. The similar stories alleging their could have been improprieties with the Clinton Foundation even thought there actually weren’t any, and claiming that donors asking for favors then being turned down for them was somehow scandalous. The constant coverage of every single fucking speech The Racist gave while completely ignoring those of first his primary opponents, and then of Hillary Clinton. But you’ll never mention those because those are all examples of the real media bias in favor of the right-wing that is responsible for putting your unqualified idiot of a boss in a position to destroy the country.

    • Resistance Fighter Astraea

      Someone had the actual numbers, but the only speech of Clinton’s the media covered with any enthusiasm was her speech about the alt-right.

      • JMP

        And of course there they focused on shaming her for accurately calling a bunch of white supremacists “deplorable”.

        • Angela Ruzzo

          What amused me at the time (briefly) was that after calling them “deplorables” they proceeded to act deplorably about it.

        • coozledad

          She should have called them “mobility scooter shartbritches” and reduced the ambiguity.

        • arensb

          I can understand the gay community reclaiming a term like “queer”, to say “damn right, we’re homosexual. Are you saying there’s something wrong with that?”
          But I don’t see how that works with racism and the term “deplorable”. Or are they largely unaware that the “basket of deplorables” referred to bigots?

          • They’re aware. They don’t see that there’s anything wrong with bigotry.

      • Doug Langley

        Don’t remember where I saw it, but someone took a look and found Hillary’s emails was the number one story of the campaign.

    • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

      I read somewhere that the media felt comfortable trashing Clinton so much for the same reason Obama decided to not rock the boat and release the info on Russia: they thought she would easily win. So they decided to burnish their bona fides as balanced journalists and hyper focused on the emails as a balance to [weekly Trump scandal here]. Turns out, they were wrong.

    Although I still have many questions about 9/11 I do wear the cone of shame for my tunnel visioned approach to any movie contradicting the offical theory without fact checking certain elements that I could have well did. Once you go down the rabbit hole you can get really stuck and if you don’t pull out the oxygen runs out.

    The problem is that even Karem’s defense accepts the narrative, that bad reporting, reaching for conclusions, or getting the facts wrong is equivalent to actual fake news.

    trump’s meeting with gop senators goes less than well with him not even knowing what’s in the bill he’s pushing.
    “trump seemed especially confused when a moderate Republican complained that opponents of the bill would cast it as a massive tax break for the wealthy.”
    Responding:
    “Yeah and what’s your point?”

    • Bub, Zombie of the Resistance

      Is “Trump seemed especially (rather, extremely, very, particularly, remarkably, notably, etc.) confused” really a story at this point? I mean, wake me up when he demonstrates that he actually understands and grasps the essentials of a complex issue. (Or a simple issue, come to that.)

    • snigsy

      I don’t think he was confused. Instead, his response meant he saw nothing wrong with a massive tax break for the filthy rich. In other words, it was one of those rare moments when he showed some honesty.

    This can end in two ways as far as I can see. Either we’ll look back on this time and think: “OMG, remember that? How did we ever get to that?” in the same way we now think of segregation or flared pants and wide lapels. Or we can look back on this and think: “Gee, we were so innocent back then. Remember when we didn’t have death squads patrolling the brown neighborhoods and neighbors turning you in to the Stasi for being suspected for having an abortion?” I really vacillate every day between which one is the most likely outcome.

But, not only did the other candidate with the popular vote, the idiot won the EC. It makes the EC utterly useless, and a liability to our democracy.

      • Ghenghis McCann

        The mean girls invited her to the table so they could laugh at her behind her back.

        Definitely both. She was the plain, awkward “friend” that they kept around to make themselves look better. The mean girls would be mean to her, but she got to be mean to the proles.

          Yup. Which is exactly what makes the “base” happy too. “At least we get to shit on brown people”.

      That’s what Trump wants.

    • Margling53

      I couldn’t agree more. If the White House wants to put on fake press conferences, the real press should boycott them. The MSM should also stop reporting on Trump’s lying tweets. The silence would kill Trump, who lusts after publicity almost as much as he craves the respect he will never get.

    Don’t get me wrong – she’s an awful person with execrable taste saying awful things. It’s just that there are areas of snark that say more about the snarker than about the snarkee.

  • Michael Smith

    Lol fake news. Right wing propaganda relies so much on stealing concepts that started out as liberal criticisms of conservatives.

    I remember when Fake News first started being A Thing, and it was really more about all those ridiculous right-wing propaganda tabloids on Facebook that were responsible for things like Jade Helm and Pizzagate.

    Facebook caused a stir after Pizzagate by saying they were going to start cracking down on “fake news,” since it was apparently starting to inspire violence among morons. Then, if you’ll recall, conservatives threw a shit fit, saying that Facebook was going to start banning conservative viewpoints (perhaps implicitly admitting that lying and fear mongering is essential to conservative power). So Facebook backed down a bit.

    Then the conservative propaganda machine turned the tables and started referring to any non-conservative news outlet as Fake News, which of course conservatives ate up. Then Trump adopted the tactic, and he and his team still use it with gusto today. Basically any time some catchy phrase emerges that reduces some conservative crap to a soundbite, they appropriate it and try to turn it against liberals. That’s why they are always trying to use the term “alt-left” (though that one hasn’t been as successful).

  • Vagenda of Rebel Scum

    There are no words, as they say. Legitimate news sources print retractions when they are found to be incorrect, and according to Trump, that proves that they are fake news. Garbage like Alex Jones or Rat Face O’Keefe are never, ever wrong, and in fact they double down unless they are faced with a lawsuit where they might actually lose some money.
    This administration just makes my head hurt.

Which makes as much sense as someone laughing at warning residents of Porterville CA the Hells Angels are headed for town. You know there will be trouble. You just don’t know how much.

    Barack Obama had an entire cable news operation, with the most viewers in the country, flat out fabricating shit about him for four years on end. If he or his press secretaries ever once whined about that, it escaped my notice. Instead, he sat twice–twice–for interviews with that obnoxious pus-head Bill O’Reilly.

    Now we get this guy who was elected because he was a tough business negotiator. And does nothing but whine about how everyone in the world except Fox News and James O’Keefe are mean to him. Give me a fucking break.

      I am perpetually amazed that this fool in chief does nothing but WHINE. he won the Electoral College vote. he’s president. And yet he’s still whining. You’d think he’d be happy. But he isn’t. I’d read somewhere that he’s said his strategy is “I whine till I win.” I don’t know if that’s fake news or not, but it ain’t workin’ for him. he’s whining, but he sure isn’t winning.

      • Cat Cafe for the Prosecution

        It’s because that isn’t what he wants. He wants us to like him. And his Shakespearean-level tragedy is all he’d have to do is be a decent human being, just a little, but he simply won’t do it. He could! He could literally say “SINGLE PAYER FOR ALL” and could actually make it happen in the current political climate. Or “No, Muslims are actually people and we’re just going to stop with this hate.” Or “we NEED our immigrants.” But he is drawn to the purest cruelty and racism and brutality and destructive meanness. It’s pathological and I’d almost feel sorry for him except he’s choosing to be an utter piece of shit human being.

        • HarpyLibtart

          Is he though? I don’t think he can choose to be a good person any more than a shark can choose to leave the ocean and move to Arizona…his entire life has been one long celebration of his assholery. Even if he did have the capacity to realize that people hate him because he’s an irredeemable sack of rancid garbage person, he’s too old and stupid to change at this point (not that he or anyone around him would recognize or comprehend basic human decency if it threw itself at them vulva-first, which is the crux of his problem).
          His ego won’t let him back down on the stupid policies whispered into his ears by Bannon Harkonnen and his confederacy of dunces because then he’d have to admit that the Black guy who made fun of him that one time might have been right and that would be unpossable. :P

      The look on her face when she turned away from Trump and toward the rest of the press pool is ALL OF US.

  • “tongue-bathe Donald Trump’s grundle bumps” *hurlp* and UP comes breakfast.

    • phoenix00

      breakfast, yesterday’s midnight snack, yesterdays’ dinner, yesterday’s afternoon tea with auntie Maddie……

  • Angry Red Bird DGAF

    So basically they decided to do a live press briefing because they had some news they could take advantage of.

    Also, is OQuefe still a thing?

  • Hazel Blumberg

    How much do they pay the Shuckster to lie like that? She dumps on “fake news” and then tells everyone in the room–and everyone in the US–to watch a video by a fake journalist who’s been caught again and again faking news by splicing tapes. Twice she says that she doesn’t know if the guy’s video is “accurate or not.” Geeeeez. Does she even know what she’s saying? Does she realize how she’s doing nothing but spreading fake news? This is Orwell’s 1984 writ large.

    • Twice she says that she doesn’t know if the guy’s video is “accurate or not.”

      Did they put WINK WINK in the official transcript? 😉

      • Hamilton Ω, AKA Formerly DN

        Well, she obviously has a ways to go before she can articulate her face enough to do the WINK WINK effectively. It does look like she’s trying–with a degree of futility, I may add.

        • Southrons can only scrunch up their faces in disgust when a liberal is talking.

          It’s their go-to emotion on a limited pallet [sic] 😉

          • Walt Kowalski

            are you still crying, boy?

    • Cat Cafe for the Prosecution

      1984 was already kind of writ large, just sayin’

    • Hamilton Ω, AKA Formerly DN

      They can’t be paying her much. She has to get all her clothes from walmart, it looks like. Can’t afford to get a professional re-imaging, either. Looks like somebody you would run into at a trailer park in the middle of Bumbfuck, Arkansas during Beer Time.

      • Gregory Brown

        I think she’s wearing one of Mother Huckabee’s mumus.

    • Heyzeus Ahchay

      When did they start selling Liars cigarettes? “A pack of Liars and a fifth of Old Crow, please.”

  • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

    I mentioned last night, I was at the gym yesterday evening at Tucker did at least 10 or 15 minutes on CNN and fake news and blah blah.

    1) You would think they would support the producer (who apparently doesn’t work on any Trump stories), as he supports the rightie view that there’s no scandal in regards to Russia.

    2) CNN apparently issued a statement saying that like diversity of opinion. Tucker put up a graphic (the sound on the tv was off) saying diversity was bad cause it silences dissenters. Which – is just all kinds of wrong, I don’t know where to start. I know, I know, it’s tucker – but I’ve never actually WATCHED that crap show before.

    3) Trump twits today:

    • JAKvirginia

      Fake News comment from a Fake President. The irony is crushing.

    • Hamilton Ω, AKA Formerly DN

      3:49 AM – 3:58 AM — 9 minutes to compose second tweet.
      3:58 AM – 6:06 AM — 8 minutes to compose third tweet.

      Given the vapidity of Trump’s tweet output, it sure seems like it takes a long time for Donnie to compose his twits. You would think that he was spending that time braining out his brilliant extrusions. Maybe he is pinching-off loaves also too between tweets. (Sorry, I forgot to instruct you to turn your mind’s eye brightness down to zero before I typed that.)

      Anyway, something something to speculate something.

    • Heyzeus Ahchay

      So says the fake president with the albino ferret on his head.

      • SprinklemagicResistancebuns

        Obligatory FERRET LIBELZ!

        Also, that’s a champagne ferret (yes really!), which makes sense, since he thinks anything called champagne must be classy. Although the ferret does have more class than him in a tiny, adorable toenail.

    • phoenix00

      Complaining about Amazon not paying non-existent taxes when he refuses to release his actual taxes…………………………….

  • BreakingDeadMen

    That headline is wrong. There is nothing glorious about that woman’s ass.

  • I cheered so much for that guy. More of that, please, political journalists.

    • Rex Thorne

      So did I, but no other reporter joined him. Most of them aren’t pushing back against the mad administration.

      • SeeTrain65

        And the answer where she suggested everyone watch O’Queef’s bullshit “report” was an answer to a question from some schmuck from Breitbart.

        They’re stacking the room with these morons. When Mike Fucking Cernovich can get a spot on the White House press room, we’ve flushed away whatever sanity we had left.

        • Ducksworthy

          Where is Jeff Gannon? He’d be an improvement.

  • Lyly Sirivong

    I hope it will encourage others to fight back in press briefings.

    • Sarah E. Grove

      Ya know, I do think that’s starting to happen. I sure as hell wouldn’t want the press as enemies. Even though they were pushing PLENTY of “fake news” last year re: Hillary Clinton. I’d venture to say THAT fake news played a large hand in her defeat.

      The very LEAST the press can do now is take this orange asshole to the woodshed. Keep digging, boys & girls. They’ll have to defumigate our White House after he’s gone .. . .. that is, if he doesn’t burn it down to the ground first.

      Asshole McCarthy actually does look like one of his modern-day counterparts —-> Ted Cruz. And of course, sitting there with McCarthy is that slimy little toad, Roy Cohn — who was Donald Trumps mentor!

      You just can’t make this shit up!

      • Gregory Brown

        The lives of Tail Gunner Joe and Ted Cruz do no overlap, meaning that Teddy Bear could indeed be the reincarnation of Joe McCarthy.

    • Mehmeisterjr

      Hey, show a little pity for Team Huckabee’s fashion coordinator. Re-purposing a fuschia shower curtain isn’t as easy as you might think.

  • Akat

    Thank you for this. I had to stop reading WaPo (and just the headlines at that) because I was getting too depressed. This cheered me. He schooled her ass and wouldn’t let her interrupt with her bullshit, and I love that she did not know what to do. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – journalists should be the most revered and highest paid people in a democracy. And I’m not just saying that because my husband had to run screaming from the profession.

  • Ducksworthy

    Dear Mr. Hurst,

    I feel I must report that I am growing tired of the hyperbolic headlines for stories regarding the occasional honest actions of media persons as heroic. Hercules himself could not lift Sarah Huckabee’s ass much less hand it to her.

    Respectfully,
    The Hon.R.R. Ducksworthy

    • phoenix00

      But then again, it took a reporter for Playboy to hand it to her. Playboy.

      (Waaaaaaiiiiit a min, did you and I just lump Playboy and ass in the same thread?)

  • BIJ0U

    Yes, IF it is accurate, it would be horrifying. What’s horrifying is her weasel-wording.

    Alex does this same clause insertion shit so he can pollute the minds of commoners and not bet popped for straight out lying.

    I just love her Picasso face (Picasso chicken), that permanantly bewildered look that says – I’m committed to whatever egregiousnesses Trump sharts but I’m beginning to suspect that I will despise myself in my cheap, flaking, gold leafed years. But this is now and now I must march stoically onward with courage, with quickened pace to the hell that I have suckelled to mine own breast. Anyhoo, Shakespeare didn’t write that but maybe he should have, proclaiming: Fuck it! That’s good enough for Sarah Huckabee. Now that that’s done, off to ye old Boars’ Decadent Balls for long meads and a touch of syphilis.

  • TundraGrifter

    When did she lose her job as a Kentucky county clerk, refusing marriage licenses for gay couples?

        You lasted that long? I was sick of it before the inauguration.

      November 6, 2018, all seats in the House are up for re-election, 494 days. Boot the GoP out of the House as a good start. A House hostile to the graft and corruption of Trump-Bannon would be an much more interesting watch.

  • Celtic_Gnome

    So, let’s see, he pissed off the intelligence community by basically saying they’re all liars, and he’s pissed off the reporters by basically saying they’re all liars, and then he’s going to go on Fox News and complain that everyone’s being unfair to him.

    • phoenix00

      As one does, apparently…….

  • Heyzeus Ahchay

    Re: your hedline:
    Must have taken 4 sets of hands and a front-end (back-end?) loader to hand it to her.

    From the looks of her, Sarah’s ass can’t be that glorious. I am betting it resembles Mike Huckabee’s face a lot.

    Seriously…I’m just hoping that this is evidence that the trump people (people? question for another day…) know the gig is up, and they are just burning it down now.

  • Maybe

    Good thing they didn’t try to hand her ass to Trump. His hands are too tiny for it.

      The person who hands her ass to her will have to make two trips.

  • It’s me, Dick.

    This woman always has the “I just shit my pants” look on her face. More clown crap from an administration full of fools and clowns.
