FLOTUS Friday: Nabob Edition

"In the United States today, we have more than our share of nattering nabobs of negativism. They have formed their own 4-H club -- the hopeless, hysterical hypochondriacs of history." – Vice-President Spiro Agnew

I’ve had it with the nattering nabobs of negativism, and no amount of covfefe will help.

Honestly, wishing a pandemic on the country in order to kill our own economy in order to take down a President they don’t like? Who does that? Deranged ideologues, that’s who.

While then Vice-President Spiro Agnew gave a series of speeches in 1969 criticizing the media for their negative coverage, the phrase was actually directed  at politicians critical of the Nixon administration policies during the 1970 mid-term congressional campaign; not a word was uttered about the “press” as media was known at the time. Within a year’s time however the media, desirous even then of being the story rather than simply covering it, began the fiction that that delicious turn of phrase had been directed at them. Fifty years later everyone believes that to be true: such is the power of owning the franchise known as “the press.” Thank God for the internet where the truth still leaks out in certain venues.

I must say I find it curious that just two weeks ago the modern day Democratic Party/Media complex was criticizing the President for shutting down flights to and from China as an “overreaction” is now complaining that he’s not doing enough to address the dreaded Coronavirus crisis. Only a cabal can have it both ways. I wonder if they consider the North Korean response “adequate.”

In what appears to be a rather drastic measure to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID 19), North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un allegedly sanctioned for the execution of the first North Korean patient tested positive for the deadly strain of the virus.

But as I said, enough. Rest your eyes instead on our most elegant FLOTUS.

When the media can’t find anything kind to say about such a lovely representative of our country you know they are the enemy.
