On a Friday that's seen some actual newsworthy events, the US Corporate Media has been engaging in collective arm-flapping over some allegedly inflammatory remarks the President made during a Senate Conference. With the Fire and Fury expose going the way of the Golden Shower Hoax, the denizens of the Deep State are prowling about like a pack of hyenas looking for some other non-issue to distract public attention from the Administration's achievements.
So going outside the US Media, we note the headlines in the Chinese outlet, The Global Times and read the following: "Trump Denies S------e Countries Remark." That really should be about all we need to hear unless credible sources say otherwise. The Global Times goes to tell us about their sources (emphasis ours):
"Trump made the remarks, people briefed on the meeting told the Washington Post."
"The New York Times later reported the same story, citing sources with direct knowledge of the meeting."
Like Michael Wolff's interviewees, the women whom Trump allegedly groped, the unnamed sources privy to Trump's dealings with Russia; etc.: these are the products of somebody's imagination whispered in some yellow-journalist's ear and palmed off on the public as truth.
The only actual named source to any of this is Senator Richard Durbin, who's no stranger to making bigoted remarks himself and is a notorious liar. Nothing this man ever says should be accepted at face value.
In fact, Durbin's quotes sound suspiciously like they were copied from another Catholic-hating xenophobic bigot like Michael Savage, who references Third World countries in the same language regularly. It wouldn't be surprising in the least if Durbin were secretly a regular listener to the Savage Nation. Savage has the same dislike for immigrants from Catholic countries as Durbin has. He's accused Latin American and Caribbean countries of sending immigrants "to fill Church pews" and "give the Priests more alter-boys to molest." When Melania and Ivanka attended Mass at the Vatican, Savage called the Ceremony "mumbo-jumbo and incense." Durbin---like most 'tolerant' Liberals---feels about the same way. His constituency in Illinois is made up of old-school George Wallace-type Democrats: the types who, during the Civil War, supported the Confederacy because they were keeping Blacks from migrating North.
The bottom line here is: Trump is innocent until proven guilty of said remarks. And he probably never will be proven guilty because he never said them. And as for the Corporate Media: the world's biggest public latrines are their own newsrooms---where the excrement seems to flow and where they wallow on a daily basis.
