Sarah Sanders refused to oblige CNN’s Jim Acosta’s demand to remove the “enemy of the people” moniker President Trump has bestowed upon the DC press corps.
I guess the Secret Service protection Sanders now requires amid the calls from that same press corps’ fellow travelers to subject her to a lifetime of public harassment has Sanders not particularly interested in what Acosta thinks he deserves.
Is the DC press corps a protector of the people? Is it a professional Fourth Estate acting as a check on the ruling class? Those descriptions don’t seem to fit either, do they?
Not all the members of the DC press corps are enemies to all of the people.
But the great majority are devotees of every big government gambit launched since the New Deal.
They cheer the economically illiterate agitprop of a millennial bartender and the communist virtue-signaling of a backup quarterback.
They want to force men into your daughter’s locker room, Howard Zinn into her classroom, and religion out of her life.
They call for our discourse to be elevated while welcoming a racist simp to the New York Times editorial board.
They champion policies and policymakers who oppose free minds and interfere in free markets.
Maybe the word to describe such people is not “enemy” but I know it’s not “friend” either.
