The Laugh Of The Defeated

After the February jobs report was released, the right-wing media cheered and pretended that it was due to neo-fascist sociopath Donald "Rump" Trump's wonderful, non-existent economic policies after just 50 days in office. Economic policies put in place by President Obama over his 8 years in office resulted in 7 plus years of steady job growth, after inheriting a Rethuglican economy that was shedding 750,000 jobs the month before he took office. During the 2016 campaign, Rump criticized the good monthly Obama jobs numbers as phony and misleading, so when his paid liar Sean "Spicy" Spicer presented the good jobs numbers for Rump's first month, did he decry them as phony? Of course not, in fact he quoted his narcissistic boss:
“I talked to the president prior to this, and he said to quote him very clearly: 'They may have been phony in the past, but it’s very real now.'"
Sadly, the press' reaction to this bit of Orwellian logic was to laugh. Considering what a transparently buffoonish, lying clown Rump is, it's disturbing when the press finds being manipulated somehow funny. Some reactions to the press' bonhomie:

The "sound of defeat" indeed. Our broken, access-driven hive media in full display.

More proof if it was needed that these goombahs can't be counted on to defend what's left of our democratic institutions and norms.
