So funny in fact that one of his jokes, in particular, brought tears of laughter to my eyes: “The press,” he said — and here comes the punchline — “educates and informs people.” [Insert ROFL emoji.] Therefore, he observed, “people don’t need to be aware of every single thing that’s going on.” [Insert second ROFL emoji.]
Letterman’s comments came during an interview with IndieWire, in which he spoke at length about President Trump. He believes the low point of Trump’s presidency came shortly after his inauguration in January 2017.
“Well, I’ll tell you when it really began was when he declared that the press was the enemy of the people,” referring to comments from Trump that originated in early 2017 on Twitter, soon after his inauguration and as just one of his many rampages upon ‘fake news.'”
Trump has continued the “enemy of the people” mantra for four years, often chiding “mainstream” media cameramen during his rallies — which I love — and accusing the liberal media of promulgating “fake news” on a regular basis. To suggest that Donald J. Trump has lived rent-free, 24×7, in the heads of the liberal media lapdogs of CNN and MSNBC, for example, would be the understatement of understatements.
Uh-huh, Dave. You mean just like the press has “educated” and “informed” us about the Democrat presidential nominee’s son Hunter Biden’s email controversy? And emails directly linking Biden to the scandal?
Or maybe you meant the way the press kept us “educated” and “informed” about Tara Reade’s charges of sexual assault charges against Biden, and how he remained silent about those charges?
