Mike Pompeo Launches Into His Own Enemy Of The People Rant, Calling NPR Reporter A Liar

270

Here we go, more polarization in government, but this story isn’t about the diametric opposition of the Republicans and Democrats, it’s about the ongoing War on Truth waged by the current administration against the press. Here with a gasoline can is Mike Pompeo, to make his contribution to the fray. If you missed the back story, Pompeo was interviewed by NPR reporter Mary Louise Kelly, wherein he said to her, “Do you think anybody cares about Ukraine?” and used the F-word. Plus, he insulted her intelligence, saying she couldn’t even find Ukraine on a map. Now, Pompeo is livid that she didn’t keep his abuse off the record, but instead told it to Ari Melber. The Hill:

“NPR reporter Mary Louise Kelly lied to me, twice. First, last month, in setting up our interview and, then again yesterday, in agreeing to have our post-interview conversation off the record,” Pompeo said in a statement released by the State Department.

“It is shameful that this reporter chose to violate the basic rules of journalism and decency,” he continued, calling the incident “another example of how unhinged the media has become in its quest to hurt President Trump and this Administration.”

“It is no wonder that the American people distrust many in the media when they so consistently demonstrate their agenda and their absence of integrity,” he added.

Somebody’s unhinged, that much is certain, and I doubt it’s this NPR reporter, who was keeping things on and off the record long before Donald Trump and coterie ever came on the scene. It’s the knee jerk reaction of everybody in Trumpworld these days to excuse their actions by invoking a smoke screen of deep state paranoia, like it was a genie called on to protect them. None of them are doing anything wrong, ever, it’s just that there’s a conspiracy to make everybody associated with Trump look bad, oh no. So much for the party of personal responsibility,

Typical tRumpster adhominem attack and smear without even a smidge of denial of wrongdoing, malicious intent, or immoral behavior. The parallel reality universe of tRumpworld and Bizzaroworld.

“The Press” is a function, not a caste, a freedom, not an elite. The constitutional tenet gives “reporters” no greater freedoms than the rest of us enjoy. Indeed, it doesn’t even differentiate between “reporters” and “the rest of us.” Reporters have no less, and no more, constitutional protections than the rest of us. And most certainly no exemptions from laws that apply to all citizens. You can’t break into a house at night and claim “freedom of the press” in court because you were wearing a press pass. You can’t arrest another citizen on the street and coerce them into… Read more »
