I had never heard this term before — “whataboutism.”
As in: Sure, Trump is a pathological liar who’s destroying our government and our standing in the world, but what about the child porn ring Hillary ran out of a pizza parlor? What about the four Americans she killed at Benghazi? What about the uranium deal?! The attorney general needs to appoint a special prosecutor!
I have two things to say about that.
- If you haven’t already seen it, here’s Shepard Smith on Fox News explaining the uranium deal. Guess what: Hillary did absolutely nothing wrong.
- Here is John Oliver explaining whataboutism. Warning: it’s very funny and, yes, very irreverent. Trump supporters, just like Judge Roy Moore supporters, will find it deeply disrespectful, elitist, snide — all that. And they will stick with the alternative facts with which they are comfortable. But the rest of us? Until this nightmare ends — as soon as possible, because it’s truly an emergency — we can never be reminded too often how absurd and deeply dangerous Trump’s presidency is. Putin is winning, bigly.
Have a great day.
