An assassination attempt is not “germ warfare going on in” the streets.
Some will call Miliband's line “hyperbole,” but it’s beyond that. Besides, I thought diplomats were supposed to express themselves diplomatically, rather than like Fleet Street yellow journalists.
Speaking of Fleet Street yellow journalists, Matthews said it was “ironic” that President Trump spoke of German chancellor Angela Merkel as Putin’s puppet.
Very few people use the word “ironic” correctly. They usually mean “hypocritical,” but think that “ironic” sounds classier.
Matthews is insinuating that Trump is the captive of Putin. But that is just a DPUSA propaganda point. DPUSA gang members have repeated that lie thousands of times, in order to try and make their audience subliminally accept it, as part of their seditious campaign to undo the 2016 election, render Trump politically impotent, and with Robert Mueller’s help, steal the presidency from the millions of Americans who voted for Trump.
The only problem is that the seditionists have never come up with an iota of evidence that Trump is Putin’s puppet.
Matthews also referred to “John Foster Dulles, our foreign minister” (under Ike), before correcting himself and saying, “secretary of state.”
Talk about sucking up! I lived abroad for five years, and yet I would never refer to an American secretary of state as a “foreign minister,” unless I was speaking in a foreign language which has no phrase “secretary of state.”
Chris Matthews was speaking in English. I doubt that he knows any foreign languages, unless one counts anti-Americanism, in which he's fluent.
