I BELIEVE IT started with Barry Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign. At least that’s when I first noticed it. Stunning campaign crassness.
Of course, it’s a reflection of today’s culture, this endless crudity.
The annual White House Correspondents Dinner, a love fest of the leftist media, took place the other night and, yet again, President Trump declined to attend. But, astoundingly, some members of his administration did show up.
One was Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Some gal named Michelle Wolfe, a potty-mouthed comedienne, was the headliner. She unleashed unrestrained profanity against the president and others in the White House. The leftist media, one assumes, chuckled away.
Wolfe made fun of Sanders’ appearance while Sanders was sitting there right in front of her. What kind of person does that? No one with an iota of class.
Not her politics or job performance, but her appearance!
No one would have acted this way at a Republican dinner or any dinner where participants possess good breeding, that their mamas raised them right.
I couldn’t help thinking back to the months leading up to Barry Obama’s re-election campaign in 2012. At least two online videos, professionally produced and starring showbiz stars Samuel L. Jackson and Sarah Silverman, hyped Barry’s re-election with a stunning, over-the-top, spewing of profanities.
These videos, one imagines, were not made by Barry’s campaign. I hope not. That would have been exponentially worse. But it reflects the character of leftists.
Every day provides new reasons to rejoice that Hillary went down in flames. And that Barry and Michelle are out of the White House.
And that I’m out of the newspaper business.
