Donald Trump had another normal one on Friday night. He gave an NRA rally speech that was chock-full of lies, gaffes, bizarre asides, wild, unsupported exaggerations, and enough flop sweat to drown a Shetland pony. In other words, par for the course that he habitually cheats on.
Of course, whenever President Joe Biden stammers, flubs a word, or stumbles on his way up to Air Force One, the media descends on him like a flock of flying monkeys who’ve just finished ransacking a Boone’s Farm truck. Case in point: The histrionic reactions to the recent special counsel report/hit job in which Trump appointee Robert Hur tried his darndest to Jim Comey the 2024 election.
But Trump? Effervescently weird is his baseline, so he tends to get a pass. He could bite the head off a bat … or a batboy … or Nikki Haley, for that matter … and The Washington Post would slot the story somewhere between the Sudoku puzzle and “Marmaduke.” Assuming Marmaduke didn’t eat one of Hillary’s emails, that is—in which case they’d print the comic on the front page, above the fold.
