Washington Post Writer Tells Sarah Sanders to Quit Complaining. [VIDEO]

Fresh off the smackdown Sarah Sanders gave the media on the “Jim Acosta Show” — aka, a press conference — the Washington Post fired back. So a WaPo columnist decided to counter her accusations in an opinion article.

Here’s a shorter version: Quit Yer Bitchin’.

Why, her complaints are bogus, and (ahem) ‘Trumped-up,’ writes the Washington Post’s Aaron Blake.  “Let’s break it down, piece by piece,” he writes.

Yes, let’s.

Blake writes:

Nobody said Sanders should be harassed as a life sentence.

Whereupon he actually quotes the Washington Post’s opinion writer Jennifer Rubin, who said this on MSNBC:

Did you catch that?

“Sarah Huckabee has no right to live a life of no fuss, no muss, after lying to the press, after inciting against the press. These people should be made uncomfortable, and I think that is a life sentence.”

But Blake insists that being “made uncomfortable” is not the same as “being harassed.” Do explain, then, just how being “made uncomfortable” looks.

You mean like this:

Rubin was absolutely referring to the harassment that Waters is endorsing here. Yet Blake says that Rubin didn’t call for “harassment” of Sanders.

In other fake news, bears don’t shit in the woods, either.

So let’s see some other Aaron Blake attempts at whitewashing. Oh, here’s another — it refers to the disgusting treatment Sarah Sanders got from “comedienne” Michelle Wolf. Now you remember this from the White House Correspondent’s Dinner, I’m sure:

But, but, says Aaron Blake.. . .

Nobody asked a comedian to say these things — and in fact many of the reporters Sanders tags with this incident denounced that same comedian.

Really? Nobody asked a comedian to say these things? So just how did Michelle Wolf get the dais then — did she apply at the door for the gig? And if you think the White House Correspondents’ Association didn’t know what they were getting with Wolf, then I have this bridge for sale.

Moreover, if Wolf’s comments were appropriate, and if Sanders should just suck it up, then why did the Correspondents’ Association later apologize?

Finally, there’s this one. And it’s a real beaut, too:

Nobody advocated for Sanders being choked.

Here’s what Nicolle Wallace said, on the air:

And here’s how Blake explains it all away:

Nicolle Wallace didn’t call for choking Sanders, but instead asked a reporter if she ever wanted to “wring” Sanders’s neck out of frustration.

Actually, Blake is kinda, sorta right here, but only in a semantic sense. That’s because “choke” and “wring” are not synonymous. When you choke someone, you’re cutting off their airflow. When you wring the neck of, say, a chicken, you’re breaking its spinal column in order to kill it. However, both words refer to seizing someone’s neck to either injure or kill them.

But even in a more contemporary, less rural sense, “wring her neck” still can refer to violent action against someone. Now I’m pretty sure that Wallace wasn’t asking that someone do Sarah Sanders in, but she still apologized:

“When I asked about whether the tension in the briefing room ever makes reporters want to wring the neck of the spokesman, I used poorly chosen words, & for that I’m sorry.”

Now imagine if some Fox News correspondent made such a statement about one of Obama’s press secretaries. There’d be hell to pay, amirite?

So if these comments were oh-so-innocent, then why did the Correspondents’ Association and Nicolle Wallace apologize, hmm? As far as Maxine Waters or Jennifer Rubin go — well, forget about it. They wouldn’t apologize to save their souls.

Aaron Blake is trying to explain away the indefensible here, by taking words out of context. That’s ridiculous — the only ones who’ll believe that load of bullshit are progressives and fellow travelers in the media. So maybe he should stop pissing on our shoes and telling us it’s raining.

    His infantile antics are making the whole news media complex look like idiots (even more so than usual). Let them keep circling the wagons, the rest of us out here in the real world are just laughing at them.
