Post Abandons Freedom Walk, Commences Face-Saving Crawl

The Washington Post announced today that it was withdrawing sponsorship of the America Supports You Freedom Walk, the Pentagon's subdued fourth-anniversary commemoration of the 9/11 terror attacks, culminating in a National Mall concert by Clint ("I Raq and Roll") Black. Antiwar activists, the Post's Newspaper Guild local, and some Post reporters all questioned the seemliness of the paper's sponsorship of an event that seemed to be plumping for the long-discredited connection between the war on terror and the Iraq War. Post flak Eric Grant announced:


As it appears that this event could become politicized, The Post has decided to honor the Washington area victims of 9/11 by making a contribution directly to the Pentagon Memorial Fund. . . . It is The Post's practice to avoid activities that might lead readers to question the objectivity of The Post's news coverage.

A propos of that last point, we anxiously await word on the cancellation of Bob Novak's column.

Is there ANY good news for the bumblefucking Trump re-election campaign these days? Their polling numbers are in the shitter, therefore Trump is firing the pollsters. Trump's Hitler rally kickoff event in Florida last night was ... whatever it was. Oh, and did we mention that they ain't got no money? Like, of course, not counting whatever Russian money they're not telling us about.

Don Jr. recently called a prominent donor and warned that Trump's money haul is falling behind where Barack Obama was early in his reelection, while Jared Kushner has privately complained to RNC chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel that Trump's war chest is not as big as it should be at this point in the cycle.

Whiiiiiiiiiine. Guess they're gonna have to see if they can launder some rubles somewhere, ALLEGEDLY.

Gabe Sherman has some more bad news about Trump's shithole campaign, and it is that Robert and Rebekah Mercer, the father-daughter billionaire duo who bankrolled much of Trump's "victory" in 2016 -- including funding Breitbart, and also the part of the "victory" that comprised Cambridge Analytica, the data company they owned that may have done some real hinky stuff, possibly with Russia, in order to get Trump "elected" -- have zipped up their checkbooks and decided Trump can go eat dicks for all they care.
