Chris Cilliza's Really Bad No-Good Awful Week of Stinking Failure

This is the "non-partisan" politics watcher for the Washington Post.

So Meghan McCain had a beef with Cillizza -- she remembered Cillizza going after her dad's health in 2008, yet insisting that Hillary's was off-limits in 2016.

Cillizza's response to this was to note that McCain was a whole three years older than Hillary, so apparently that's like a totally different thing and stuff, man.

Now Hillary collapses in something that looks like a tonic-clonic seizure, and Cillizza has to backpedal a bit:

But that doesn't mean Cillizza is done embarrassing himself. Oh Nellie, no.

So he was embarrassed by her, and butthurt, and looking for Twitter vengeance.

He pounced on her tweet, mocking her use of the word "lifeless:"

Good burn, right? Right. Except that... Mollie Ziegler Hemingway bothered to do what Cillizza couldn't be assed with and checked the dictionary:

Yes, "lifeless" means "insensible, as someone who has fainted." And that's not a terribly uncommon usage, either.

So basically Chris Cillizza, a man paid for his acute powers of analysis and facility with the English language, declared Hillary to be in the glowing pink of health when she was about ready to have a convulsive seizure and then lost a Vocabulary Fight with Meghan McCain.

But remember -- they're The Elites. You should listen to them.

The Media Elite

We don't actually have anything resembling actual skills at anything, but we do have desks! And desks are pretty good too.

By the way: Get near a couch where you can collapse in a faint without injuring yourself, but the Hillary campaign is, get this, lying about having disclosed this bullshit about pneumonia "immediately" after her collapse.
