Title: Media Hysteria: WaPo Treats Kevin McCarthy Joke as Proof of Trump-Russia Link

The Washington Post released the latest salvo in the media’s effort to take down President Donald Trump on Wednesday: a joke made last year by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) suggesting that Russian President Vladimir Putin pays Trump.

The joke occurred during a private conversation involving the House Republican leadership. The conversation was recorded. The exchange — from the transcript alone, since the Post has not made the audio available — is as follows:

McCarthy: The Russians hacked the DNC and got the opp research that they had on Trump. McCarthy: laughs

[Crosstalk]

Ryan: The Russian’s hacked the DNC…

McHenry: …to get oppo…

Ryan: …on Trump and like delivered it to…to who?

[Unintelligible]

McCarthy: There’s…there’s two people, I think, Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump…[laughter]…swear to God.

Ryan: This is an off the record…[laughter]…NO LEAKS…[laughter]…alright?! [Laughter]

Ryan: This is how we know we’re a real family here.

The full context of the conversation is unclear, but the House leadership appeared to be discussing the crisis in the Ukraine, and Russian efforts to spread disinformation there. The apparent target of the joke is Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), whom the Post describes uncharitably as “a fervent defender of Putin and Russia.”

The Post‘s Adam Entous does not explain why he did not post the audio of the conversation, but two reasons seem possible: one, the laughter on the audio would underline the fact that McCarthy’s comments were intended to be humorous; two, the volume of different voices might reveal who had made, and leaked, the recording.

Though it is obvious from the transcript alone that the remark is a joke, the Post treats it as a serious scoop, claiming in the first paragraph that McCarthy “made a politically explosive assertion in a private conversation on Capitol Hill with his fellow GOP leaders.”

Later, the Post adds: “It is difficult to tell from the recording the extent to which the remarks were meant to be taken literally.”

No, it is not. (1 image)

All the major news outlets have jump the shark. They no longer understand what facts are or know what true is. They want to control the government and people with propaganda.

Are you still receiving electroshock therapy (EST) based on the Hawaiian government socialist model of containing its own citizenry in small white, strait jackets while being slapped on a stainless steel gurney? The Hawaiian government is wasting its taxpayer dollars on you, pal. There is no hope for you.

Its commentary was beyond the pale from a Hawaiian state government run psycho-babble ward. I was hoping for some common sense from it when in fact, its frenzied, paranoid-schizoid psyche is beyond repair.

To answer your question, Fred, I lead myself astray that there is hope for mankind.

#9. To: BorisY, buckeroo, Fred Mertz, National Tazer Boris Week (#8)

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed Public Law 87-726 designating May 15 as Peace Officers' Memorial Day, and the week in which May 15 falls as National Police Week. The law was amended by the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, Public Law 103-322, signed by President Bill Clinton, directing that the flag of the United States be displayed at half-staff on all government buildings on May 15 each year. While the actual dates change from year to year, National Police Week is always the calendar week, beginning on Sunday, which includes May 15.

You might benefit from a checkup and tazering from the local SWAT team, it's National Police Week. Officers are standing by to supply the tazer voltage you so desperately need.

President Trump approves this message..
