There is one great axiom with respect to Donald Trump, and that is this: No matter how low you think he has sunk, he can go down several rungs lower still. The man has no bottom. He is not only without scruples, he is without the basic awareness from whence discernment comes. He does not know the difference between gold and dross, gold being whatever suits his fancy and promotes his agenda at any given moment in time.

For a few days now, it has been his good pleasure to disparage New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, mainly because Cuomo is doing daily on-air briefings himself, and is a credibility figure and a comfort in this time of pandemic, which Trump emphatically is not. Nevertheless, Trump trashed his credibility yet again today when he read a long-debunked conspiracy theory article, from the right-wing website Gateway Pundit, which is the lowest of the low, stating how Andrew Cuomo “complains” about ventilators, but rather than buying them, establishes death panels — or something. To read Gateway Pundit on the air is a new low, even for Trump. I guess the National Enquirer will be next, as his source of expert opinion.

Media Bias ranks Gateway Pundit as “low credibility” and “questionable source” – which describes Trump himself.

The Gateway Pundit is an extreme right news and opinion website that is not afraid of conspiracy theories and the occasional publication of falsehoods (see analysis). The website was founded by Jim Hoft in 2004 to “speak the truth” and to “expose the wickedness of the left.”

According to their about page “The Gateway Pundit is one of the top political websites. It is consistently ranked as one of the top political blogs in the nation. TGP has been cited by Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, The Drudge ReportThe Blaze, Mark Levin, FOX Nation and by several international news organizations.”

In their dreams they’re “a top political website.” But they write copy that Trump can use to trash his enemies, so he has no problem quoting them on television. You might have noticed that even the Fox News host is laughing nervously.

 

Again, this is vintage Trump. When faced with unpleasant reality, make up wild stories, throw lies and innuendo at the wall and hope that something sticks. New Yorkers despise the man and they come by it honestly.

When did they meet face to face, I must have missed that?

Well, face to face with Typhoid Tubby is a proven bad idea right now. But Cuomo has been doing it in public enough to piss Trump off, which is good enough for me.

Sounds like a Stephen Miller thing. He has the ear of 45 every day. Every damned day. Who else would spew the RW CT shit?

Gateway Pundit is a top political website for its target audience, the same target audience as for its little family of endorsers. Meh.
