Media pearl-clutching over Trump’s re-tweet of a Hillary joke

When you start with the premise that Donald Trump is a monster and an outrage against public decency, practically any excuse will do to put on a serious face and intone gravely about the Future of the Republic under such a leader. And that is exactly what happened our friend Oleg Atbashian of The People’s Cube, who put together what he describes as a “silly animated GIF,” splicing together video of Donald Trump hitting a golf ball in a drive, and then film of Hillary stumbling over as she boarded a campaign plane, with a golf ball hitting her in the back.

    Because of course there was a big plane in the middle of the fairway 250 yards from where Trump was teeing off. And of course Hillary was actually boarding that very same plane at the time. And so there’s nothing remotely humorous about splicing together two seemingly disconnected events and photoshopping a golf ball careening off the back of the sorest loser on the planet. But was is SERIOUSLY not funny is that Trump quite clearly did NOT yell fore. Someone could have died. /sarc off

    1:43 into the CNN coverage before one of them finally says “He probably just thought this was funny”. This could and should have been the first and only sentence they said about it, if they even bothered to talk about it at all.
