|'struth! Suck it, bitchez.
Thanks to frequent commenter Nemo for this news which, compared to the dismal tone from other sources lately, absolutely made my day:
"Aesop,And here it is at Breitbart:
Your (I think it's yours, as this is the only place I've seen it other than me repeating the moniker on other sites) Kung Flu moniker finally made the big time. Just saw a head line on Breitbart.com (where else!) that included the term purported to have been asked by a PBS/NBC (of all people) newsperson. Right now it's the second headline down from the top."
PBS reporter Yamiche Alcindor also challenged the president’s rhetoric, noting reports that someone called the coronavirus the “kung flu” in front of an Asian-American White House reporter.
“I wonder who said that, do you know who said that?” Trump asked. “Say the term again.”
Alcindor repeated the term “Kung Flu” twice and asked again about his use of the term “Chinese virus.”
UPDATE: And it's on the FoxNews site too.
And the FakeNews mediots just can't shut up about it, @ the 13:42 mark:
Who said it? I plead guilty on all counts.
Dear Mr. President,
*I* said it. Keep up the good work. Glad to hear *you* don't have Kung Flu. And please express my thanks to your staff for reading my blog.
February 7th, my blog. March 18th, national news from the White House.
And a YUUUUUGE shout-out to poster elysianfields, from whom I originally stole it, and then posted here.
Congrats, buddy. Either we're getting signed photos in the Oval Office and MAGA hats, or federal persecution for "hate crimes".
Personally, I'm pleading the First Amendment.
If the media-tards want to take me to Instapundit levels of readership overnight, by all means, come call me out over this. You might want to peruse some of the site before you go that route. One of the tags for this post would be a major cluebat there, before you give me a platform to pull the curtain out from around your Wizard-Of-Oz antics. Just saying.
And if anyone thought I was insufferable before this over-the-moon happy news, well...brace yourselves.
Meanwhile, take it away, Carl:
Oh, and to the unnamed Asian WH reporter or reporterette from this alleged apocryphal story:
Please accept my sincere and heartfelt deepest wishes that you find a suitable hand tool and
untwist your panties!
There's an ointment for that:
