I love the irony of this front-page article in today’s New York Times – a newspaper which is on a hate-Trump mission that puts other Trump haters to shame.
The headline is “White House Plans to Have Trump Ally Review Intelligence Agencies”
And here are the first four paragraphs – with bold print very definitely mine:
President Trump plans to assign a New York billionaire to lead a broad review of American intelligence agencies, according to administration officials, an effort that members of the intelligence community fear could curtail their independence and reduce the flow of information that contradicts the president’s worldview.
The possible role for Stephen A. Feinberg, a co-founder of Cerberus Capital Management, has met fierce resistance among intelligence officials already on edge because of the criticism the intelligence community has received from Mr. Trump during the campaign and since he became president. On Wednesday, Mr. Trump blamed leaks from the intelligence community for the departure of Michael T. Flynn, his national security adviser, whose resignation he requested.
There has been no announcement of Mr. Feinberg’s job, which would be based in the White House, but he recently told his company’s shareholders that he is in discussions to join the Trump administration. He is a member of Mr. Trump’s economic advisory council.
Mr. Feinberg, who has close ties to Stephen K. Bannon, Mr. Trump’s chief strategist, and Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, declined to comment on his possible position. The White House, which is still working out the details of the intelligence review, also would not comment.
Uh….wait a minute.
Stephen Feinberg is Jewish – a little something that seems likely given his name, but is, for some reason, not mentioned by The Times? And he has close ties to Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner?
But..but…isn’t Steve Bannon that anti-Semitic guy? How the hell does he then have close ties to that Jewish guy Feinberg?
And how does Feinberg have close ties to that Jewish son-in-law of Mr. Trump – the one Trump, since he is an anti-Semite too, must hate the sight of.
(Trump would have told you about how much he hates Jews yesterday, but he was too busy having a press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who could not have been happier that he was now in the White House.)
I’ll end the sarcasm now. It’s not that I can’t keep going – believe me I can – but I assume you get the point.
