Words came out of neo- fascist demagogue Donald "Rump" Trump's mouth today, and some, like the putrid Mark Halperin, were impressed. History won't remember the speech*, but history will remember Rump's enablers:
On his 2nd lifetime use of a TelePrompTer in public, @realDonaldTrump is already better than most politicians. Lot of research in here too— Mark Halperin (@MarkHalperin) April 27, 2016
Yes, it was almost... Presidential!
The responses to Halperin's "analysis" are wonderful. Here are just a few of many examples:
.@MarkHalperin yes, it must've taken him hours to dig through all of those Internet comment sections.— Jon Favreau (@jonfavs) April 27, 2016
@MarkHalperin @realDonaldTrump ...please take your hand out of your pants when "reporting" on Trump's skills.— JD Cornbluth (@BluthX) April 27, 2016
Count on a lot more of this from Halperin and others in the amoral media. We'll keep track.
BONUS: Rump's sworn enemy, Sen. Lindsey "Huckleberry" Graham had a few burning tweets about Rump's speech:
Question #1 for Trump: Are we sure the guy running the teleprompter has the pages in the right order? #notmakinganysense— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) April 27, 2016
Question #2 -- Did teleprompter guy actually write the speech? #notmakinganysense— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) April 27, 2016
*BONUS II: Charlie Pierce takes apart Rump's big foreign policy debut. And then there's this:
