The media’s race to the bottom in order to elect Hillary Clinton

media-bias85As we discussed yesterday, the best defense for the Hillary Clinton-defending Media Establishment is to go on the offense–to spew the ugliest of epithets against anyone, for example, who may inquire about Clinton’s obsession with telling the public as little as possible about her medical condition, even when she collapses feet away from a waiting van.

Just a couple of examples. As you recall, two days before Clinton’s “episode” last Sunday at the 9/11 Memorial, she delivered a speech in which she said

“You could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. . . The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it. . . some of those folks, they are irredeemable.”

Among those Trump supporters who are the subject of Clinton’s character assassination are pro-lifers such as you and me and NRL PAC which is supporting Trump against Clinton.

Yesterday, the Washington Post took two approaches to tamping down the damage this smear of tens of millions of Americans and the fallout from the Clinton campaign’s decision not to tell the public that she had been diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday and told to take it easy for a few days.

Philip Rucker and Anne Gearan tell us

Had Clinton heeded her doctor’s advice, she would not have gone to a glitzy fundraiser Friday night where she let her guard down and inartfully talked about Trump’s supporters, nor would she have been spotted collapsing Sunday morning as she was rushed out of a 9/11 memorial ceremony.

And that

Clinton jokingly said that “half” of Trump’s supporters were in a “basket of deplorables — racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it.”

“Let her guard down,” as in letting her true feelings come through? “Jokingly”? “Inartfully”? The only thing Clinton didn’t call “half” of Trump’s supporters was being anti-Semitic.

That race to the bottom of the bottom was left to the Post’s Dana Milbank but not before he began by decreeing that “If anything, when it comes to Trump’s racist support, she might have low-balled the number.”

Milbank ended his wretched, hate-filled column by telling us that after vigorously denied the Clinton sleaze attack on his supporters, Trump

repeated the campaign slogan he borrowed from an anti-Semitic organization that opposed involvement in World War II.

“America First – remember that,” he said. “America First.”

Is there anything they won’t say? Any guilt-by-the-vaguest-of-associations smears they will concede go too far?

Milbank decided, I’m guessing, to avoid hammering Trump for what Bill Clinton recently charged was racially insensitive– Trump saying he would “Make America Great Again.”

That became untenable when various and sundry clips of Bill Clinton saying exactly the same thing cropped up, including in an old ad bolstering his wife’s first run for the presidency.

The Clinton campaign and its legion of media-enablers will stop at nothing to elect her President.
