Okay, I know I went overboard on this post's alliterative title. But I couldn't think of another story that qualified as an End-of-Year-What-the-Fuck, than Our Grand Nagus' surprise visit to our troops overseas.
The basic timeline was this--
--The lamestream media criticized Trump on Christmas Eve and Christmas for not visiting the troops in
--Then on the day after Christmas, when Our Gran Nagus showed up unexpectedly in Iraq, they lambasted him for visiting the troops.
Actually, the Ministry of Truth (a.k.a. left-wing media) went full Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Here are some examples of the symptoms--
--The cabal at CNN called Trump The Grinch Who Stole Christmas (I'm surprised they didn't say "The Holidays").
--There was the claim that Trump the Usurper violated ethics and campaign laws.
--And anytime Our Super-Model-in-Chief goes on such outings with her hubby, she comes under fire from misogynist, hypocritical commentators (personally, I think they're jealous she so stunning, classy and accomplished).
Conservative reaction to this latest outbreak of Trump Derangement Syndrome was swift--
--Tomi Lahren pointed out that the Left hates that our troops love Trump.
--White House spokesgal Sarah Huckabee condemned CNN for going after the troops.
--Jason Chaffetz, subbing-in for Sean Hannity, reminded viewers about the media silence when Obama signed personal items for the troops.
--Author and veteran Sean Parnell slammed the media for slamming Trump's visit.
--I like how Mark Steyn compared the FOBs (Forward Operating Bases) as dreary Crusader Forts.
--David Cullen could see this latest round of Trump Derangement Syndrome all the way from his home/studio in Ireland.
To finish this post in a flourish, one of my friends posted Curt Schilling's scathing retort to a triggered Ken Fitzgerald:
Happy New Year and best wishes to all of you in 2019!
