Greta Van Susteren didn’t really think Donald Trump belonged in the Democratic debate last night, she was just knocking Bernie Sanders at the same time that she was promoting Trump’s debate tweets. Now I get it!
Apparently, Van Susteren took exception to my post. On her Fox News blog, she wrote about my post, “So humorless… I was kidding.”
OK, mea culpa. I didn’t get it; I stand corrected. But I’m sorry, even as a joke, it’s a nasty swipe at Democrats that, in my opinion is not apropos. If I understand correctly, the “humor” is that Sanders’ presence is so ridiculous, that the Democrats might as well have had Trump there, too. But Sanders is a sitting U.S. senator who caucuses with the Democrats and he is running for the Democratic nomination. Trump, on the other hand, has never held public office. He should have disqualified himself as any kind of serious pundit, not to mention candidate, on Fox with his birther baloney and his never-gonna-happen “plan” to deport 11 million immigrants and do away with citizenship rights.

Meanwhile, comedian Greta’s joking or serious commentary – take your pick – about The Donald dominating the Democratic debate news is actually coming true. Well, on GOP TV™ at least. “Fox & Friends First” pimped the right-wing notion. Just as “Fox & Friends” did yesterday. Another GOP talking point is born on GOP TV™! Fair and balanced!
On the flip side, let your – fill in the blank – ‘mainstream media’ anchor make a joke ribbing The Donald and wait for the GOP TV™ hair on fire detonation. ;^)
