Here’s a theory --
In most contests, the team having more fun, wins.
And the team that loses its sense of humor, loses - period.
Take Friday, when President Trump posted a meme predicting he'll be president for ever. And ever.
Normal people, i.e. people not in the media, and therefore not under the spell of irrational obsessions, saw this as light-hearted trolling, mocking the Triggered Trump Critics like this fella:
Bill Maher: “If he loses, Trump, he won’t go. I’ve been saying that since before he got elected.”
And he was a comedian - once.
It’s so obvious it hurts. But still the media reports Trump’s jokes as dire warnings.
Here’s a Mediaite headline, screaming: "Trump posts insane Twitter video threatening to be president for eternity.”
What moron writes this stuff? It’s hard to say: they got a staff of them.
I'm anxiously awaiting their expose on why the chicken really crossed the road. Or does time really fly if you throw a clock through the air? I bet that gets three Pinocchios.
How did these people get so – to use the medical term – stupid?
Well, the media, once operating under the guise of journalism, are now just hall monitors and pundit-finks. Their job reduced to screaming "look what someone said on TV! It’s a joke – but not to us!"
They barely get out of bed anymore. Their workplace attire: sweatpants and an open bathrobe.
But that's today’s media: reporting on you, as you make them the butt of the joke. Like Chuck!
Chuck Todd: You’ve joked about a third term, you’ve joked about these things.
Trump: I only joke. I joke and say ‘watch, I will drive Chuck Todd crazy.’
Chuck Todd: You will accept the result. And you will accept – whatever happens in 2020.
Chuck Todd: You lose, you’re gonna be – you’re not gonna like it, but you’ll walk out.
Trump: Sure. In fact, I said in a speech recently, I said ‘watch, we’ll drive the media crazy – let’s go for a third term, and then a fourth,’ and some of the media said ‘he’s going to do it!’
What a treat – the trolls reporting on how they got trolled. It’s too easy, and almost unfair.
To think we're gonna have at least two, three, or four terms of this.
