The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition


The only thing this puffed-up clown deserves is a big pile of poo thrown at him. Why do you people take him seriously?

If you need to be convinced of the fundamental unseriousness of the American media, look no farther than the recent CNN interview with LaVar Ball, a self-promoting buffoon who has nothing to say of any importance, but is more than willing to tout his sneakers and criticize the President.

LaVar Ball responds to Trump, wishes him a 'great Thanksgiving'

That was a 23-minute interview! To be fair to CNN, Don Lemon, their crack journalist was unavailable, so they dug Chris Cuomo out of the play room and threw him into the mix. You have to give credit to their makeup department too...there isn't a speck of paste on Cuomo's face, and the contents of his diaper are nowhere to be found on his suit.


And here we have Newsweek with some really important breaking news....
'Fake' Apollo Moon Landing Photo Claims to Show Proof the Mission Was a Hoax
At least the Weekly World News didn't pretend to be a serious news organization.

I hate to pick on Newsweek (that's a lie), but here is another moronic article that is also politically charged and offensive.
Don't Want to Feel Thankful? How to Have a Woke Thanksgiving and Wallow in Darkness This Year

Thanksgiving dinner conversations are notoriously difficult, and President Donald Trump’s first year in office hasn’t made it any easier: 58 percent of Americans “dread the thought of having to talk about politics at Thanksgiving dinner,” a new Marist poll shows, compared to 53 percent last year.

Media outlets have taken notice and are offering quick guidelines on how to best avoid stirring the pot on Turkey Day. But Thanksgiving offers a unique opportunity to civically engage with those closest to us. It’s the dirty work all democracies depend on. So, in an effort to promote thoughtful discussion, here’s Newsweek’s guide to having a conscious, or “woke”, Thanksgiving.

What the hell does that mean? "Civically engage?" Do they mean doing your civic duty, or is it bad writing and editing and do they really mean "civilly?"

This exposes one of the most unpleasant aspects of the progressive hive...they seem to internalize and take personally every political stance, and take it as a deeply emotional and personal affront if they are disagreed with.

What a bunch of party-poopers. They are pinch-faced scolds, and can't have the decency to shut the hell up even during festive family celebrations.

What's next? "How to convince your wife of the rightness of single-payer health-care while making love?"
