When a potential GOP presidential candidate has a brilliant track record, what else have they got besides phony charges of racism?https://t.co/p2fOGSnl9X
Most of these outlets are supposedly serious news institutions. Their claims are so at odds with reality, so over the top, so crazed in a beyond-the-usual-Trump-derangement way that one wonders if they are imploding. Do they really see DeSantis as worse than Trump to the extent that they are willing to trash their own credibility to convince others? Maybe this says something good about DeSantis, or perhaps more likely, that they are on a long, sloping slide downward, starting from the days of their rage against Reagan, intensifying with their Bush Derangement Syndrome. getting way worse with their Trump Derangement Syndrome, and now skidding into lunacy with their Musk and DeSantis screechings?
Something over the top is going on. These meltdown-level ragings are bound to drive public trust in the press even lower than it already is.
