Media Fail! Does The Lyin’ King’s Approval Rating Matter?


by Marilyn Assenheim

The Lyin’ King has abandoned any pretense of concern for Americans. If his “1-800-f**k yo” Obamacare-sign-up telephone exchange wasn’t enough of a tip-off about his contempt, this week the Dictator-in-Chief upped the ante in his childish slaps at the constituency. He decided to take additional hostages … then, irrationally, blamed Republicans. A good idea? Not.

Never hampered by facts NPR considers that kind of drivel “brave.”
