Blog Commentary-(ENEWSPF)- Sadly, it appears it is too little too late. The national media is finally waking up to the disaster of the up-and-coming Trump Administration.
Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s son was hired to Donald Trump’s transition team. The young Flynn, Michael G., “has knowingly shared links on social media that promote bogus conspiracy theories involving Hillary Clinton,” according to our friends at Dead State.
And Michael G. Flynn was undergoing security clearance, but was finally dumped by the Trump team when news of his absurd conspiracy theories came to light.
Finally, on Tuesday, rather than just parroting Donald Trump’s latest tweets, one member of the media, Jake Tapper, began to wake from his long, long election season slumber:
Noting the younger Flynn’s penchant for fraudulent conspiracy theories, most notably the alleged so-called ‘pizzagate” Hillary-connected pedophilia ring being run out of a D.C. area pizzeria, Tapper asked Pence why such a person would be given the opportunity to be granted security clearance.
“You must be aware that the transition team put in for a security clearance for Michael G. Flynn, the son of Lieutenant General Flynn,” Tapper said.
Pence attempted to brush aside the question, saying the younger Flynn was only helping his father with scheduling, adding that it was time to “move on.”
“Sorry, you’re not answering the question,” Tapper interjected. “You’re aware that the transition team had put in for a security clearance. This is a young man who had a social media profile with all sorts of crazy conspiracy theories, all sorts of links and retweets with white supremacists. Were you aware that the transition team put in for a security clearance for him?”
I believe nothing Mike Pence says. And, after all of the nonsensical bashing of Hillary Clinton, it is too late for the true job of journalists.
But, at least it’s a start. It’s going to be a long, long four years.
