The last word on McCain

No really, I mean it this time. Although this one is more about Trump than McStain, actually.

MSNBC anchor Katy Tur is angry at you.

“Last week was a tidal wave of bad news for this presidency and this president, and his approval rating stayed the same. So I wonder — I mean, if that’s not going to move the needle, is this John McCain thing going to move the needle?” Tur said during an on-air breakdown worthy of Martha Raddatz.

“And forgive me for being skeptical because I was under the impression, as was most people, that when Donald Trump came out and said he wasn’t a war hero — he likes the guys that don’t get caught — back in 2015, that people would care. And when I went out and I talked to Republican voters, they didn’t care at all.”

Gee, how dare people not react the way she predicted. How dare we reject the media’s attempts to frame President Trump.

“Eighty-eight percent of Republicans still support him — 88 percent. I’m sorry, I just — I start to wonder when we have these conversations and we say, ‘Well, this is going to be the breaking point,’ I wonder if there is a breaking point. I wonder if enough people in this country find the actions and the behavior repulsive enough to want to change what’s going on,” Tur said.

There is no breaking point. None. The media cannot break the bond between the man and his supporters.

Bingo, nailed it in one.

In the old days, they could. Republicans have a long history of sacrificing candidates at the altar of appeasement over one of these media-driven fake scandals.

Then came Obama. His political mentor was an unrepentant terrorist. His religious mentor — the man he dedicated his book “The Audacity of Hope” to — said America deserved 9/11.

Most of the media didn’t care.

Why should we care if President Trump said something the media doesn’t like?

The media has fouled itself out; it is the boy who cried wolf.

While the media pitched Fake News about Russia, the economy caught fire, North Korea gave up its nukes, and the War on Terrorism seems over.

The media abused its power — and lost that power.

And they still just don’t get it, and can’t get over it.

  1. Assuming we even listen we don’t care because we know LSM lies to us daily and has for quite some time. Their goof was to cover for Zero’s great economy. You can like to people about many things especially those they can’t verify. However, when one has to choose believing what the talking heads are saying and what their wallet is saying you can bet they’ll listen to their lying wallet. Then one starts to think if they lie to me about what I can see for myself what else are they lying about.. and the spell is broken. Oh, we also don’t care because the double standard has become far too obvious. Besides that, who is really watching them anyway? We only watch LSM ‘news’ to get the local weather.

  2. Any media piece on McCain, and any Dem soundbite on McCain should be preceded by whatever the author/speaker said about McCain during the 2008 election. If memory serves, they weren’t tongue-bathing him nearly as much back then.

  3. John McCain was a nasty, petty, loathsome son of a bitch. He was reviled, during his life on Earth, by many of the people who eulogized him – GWB being one fine example. Sarah Palin never said an unkind word about him, even as McCain attempted to blame her for his half-assed 2008 Presidential campaign that cursed us with Obama. Someday I hope to locate his grave. And piss on it.

  4. “Then came Obama.”

    Of course, if you say that to a Democrat, you just get accused of whataboutism these days.
