Thin Skinned


For John, BLUFWe are looking at a temper trantrum.  Nothing to see here; just move along.




From a web site identifying itself as American Greatness and the keyboard of Mr Roger Kimball, 5 July 2017.

One of the points Mr Kimball makes is that when it comes to thin skinned, while President Trump is accused of it, in fact it is CNN, and other media, who are the thin skinned ones.

With the wrestling GIF the CNN folks could have said "The President came up with a good one over the weekend.  And it is kind of funny, but we think in a real match we would do much better" and left it at that.  That would have been a win for CNN.

Here is a pertinent quote:

But when it comes to the art of provocation, Trump is a Supreme Galactic Master and the media are weenie pikers.
And here is additional commentary, from Vox, Vox Lectures CNN on Journalistic Ethics.

UPDATE:  Local guy makes good Rob Eno has commented, here.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
