Who needs Pravda when you have the New York Times?

The elite newspapers and networks are showing a complete disregard for the truth in their bid to get Hillary elected

I have a question for you, dear readers: is it me, or is there no newspaper or network in America that tells it like it is any more? Take, for example, the Anthony Weiner case. He is the pervert who keeps sending pictures of his penis to women over the internet, more often than not while in the company of his four-year-old son. If a man like that were married to Donald Trump’s closest assistant, The Donald would have been forced out of the race by now — no ifs or buts about it. But over on the other side, Hillary confirmed her trust in Huma Abedin, a Saudi-raised Muslim and her closest adviser, who finally separated from the pervert and asked for her privacy to be respected. The compliant, ass-licking media followed orders. Hillary’s polls remained the same.

Now what kind of deal is that? If this is not a conspiracy by the media to elect Hillary, then what is it? The utter disregard for the truth on the part of the elite networks and newspapers embodies the loathing they have for The Donald. A New York Times columnist, Frank Bruni, champion of gay, transgender, bisexual and whatever-else-there-is rights, a one-time food critic-turned-political pundit, called Weiner Trump’s twin. How a clown like Bruni connects the pervert who was a Hillary insider before exposure — pun intended — to Trump is a mystery. It could only happen in the NYT. It’s like calling Hitler Churchill’s twin, or Mother Teresa the clone of Madame Claude. Poor Pravda; the NYT has put you to shame. Der Stürmer, too.

And it gets better. Another propagandist on the Times, one Nicholas Kristof, grandiloquently announces that a China expert, Cheng Li, told him that the Chinese leadership wants a Trump victory. How this ‘expert’ arrived at his conclusion is a mystery. I asked my own China expert, the man who does my laundry, also called Li, and he expertly told me that the opposite is true. The Chinese leadership wants Hillary and wants her badly. Kristof is so desperate that he even brings in Isis jihadists and has them mouthing pro-Trump statements. No wonder Trump has called the Times totally dishonest.

Then we have the lachrymose and totally bald crybaby Roger Cohen, a man who hates Nigel — he bleats that Farage and his ilk will drive his daughter to Poland — and loathes our very own Boris. I’ve got news for him. If he wrote the truth once in a while, no one would bother with him or his family. But given his position as columnist for America’s leading grievance-monger, it’s not surprising that he has grievances, however made up they are.

Cohen and Kristof twin their stories about Syria by barely mentioning Isis, just Assad. They make it sound simple. Despite the head-chopping of thousands of innocents and the mass rape and enslavement of women and children, Assad is the world’s worst man and the good guys are not winning because the bad Russkies are helping him. The twins keep it simple. Now back to Hillary, The Donald and the press.

Here’s another question for you, from a dummy like me. How come the media forgive the fact that the Clinton Foundation, worth billions, regularly lobbied Hillary’s closest adviser, the aforementioned Huma Abedin, when she was deputy chief of staff at the state department, on behalf of donors like the Saudis and the Bahrainis, and the rock jerk Bono, the latter almost as desperate for publicity as a Kardashian? (I love the story about when Bono began to clap his hands during a concert and told the dummies who had paid to hear his screeching that every time he claps his hands a child dies in Africa. ‘Well, stop fucking clapping then,’ came a wise voice from below.)

Let’s face it. It’s the whorehouse principle. Donors to the Clinton Foundation receive special access to the most corrupt couple since Bonnie and Clyde. And Huma Abedin, Hill’s closest adviser, earned a private income on the side by facilitating these shenanigans. The Clintons have raised more than two billion smackers, and as Trump said, while Hillary was the equivalent of Boris in America, it was hard to tell where the foundation ended and the state department began. Hillary sold out to Salman of Saudi and Khalifa of Bahrain and is laughing all the way to the bank. Poor old Uncle Sam, he really does deserve better.

Not that Trump is perfect — far from it. His closest associate is his son-in-law, whose father, a developer shark, pleaded guilty to 18 counts of tax evasion, witness-tampering and making illegal campaign donations, crimes of greed, power and excess, as Governor Christie put it. His name is Charlie Kushner and he did do hard time in a federal penitentiary, but not too much has been made of it. I wonder why? I’d guess because the Kushners know what it takes to get on the right side of the hacks, but then who am I, a poor little Greek boy, to say such things? All I know is that I’m looking forward to debating for Trump against the ghastly Hillary come18 October. If one is intelligent one cannot be for Hillary. Ditto if one is honest. You know what that leaves.
