Quotes Of The Day -- Trump, Russians And The Media
Last night's Real Time With Bill Maher contained some insightful zingers on neo- fascist Giant Toddler* Donald "Rump" Trump and his relationships with Russia and the media. Here are a few of our favorites:
"[Trumpers] met with the Russians more than the Olympic doping committee." -- Bill Maher.
"I can't believe Putin paid full price for this guy." -- Maher on Rump's typically ignorant comment that "Nobody knew that health care could be so complicated" (same link as above).
"Daddy didn’t come home drunk and beat us last night so he’s the best father ever!” -- conservative commentator Charlie Sykes on the media's "battered pundit syndrome" displayed in praise for Rump's big boy speech to Congress Tuesday.
"There's a desperate thirst for normal." -- MSNBC's Joy Reid on the media's willingness to constantly lower the bar for Rump and grant him "reset" moments over and over again (same link as above).
BONUS: Steve Benen and Jeet Heer have good takes on media fawning over Rump's big boy speech.
