I guess everyone was too busy writing about the election, the impeachment of our candy colored clown, and our impending deaths from coronavirus to write about this fucking asshole:
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Saturday accused an NPR reporter of lying about whether a conversation he initiated with her had been deemed off the record, a charge that NPR denied.
Pompeo’s statement, however, did not address NPR’s explosive account of the conversation — that he shouted at reporter Mary Louise Kelly, used expletives, indicated that she had questioned him about Ukraine under false pretenses in a just-completed interview, and asked her, “Do you think Americans care about Ukraine?”
The exchange came as Pompeo, President Trump’s longest-serving and closest senior adviser on national security, has been criticized for his conduct related to both Ukraine and Iran and his disregard for congressional and media questions about it.
In a statement, Pompeo called the NPR episode “another example of how unhinged the media has become in its quest to hurt President Trump and this Administration.”
Trump is bad, but this guy is a little bit smarter and more informed version, with thinner skin and an even more punchable face. I hope NPR finally learns that there’s no bargaining with terrorists and gets out of their toxic, abusive relationship with the view from nowhere, but it’s probably more likely that they’ll start cranking out beat sweeteners featuring Pompeo’s dog and kids.
