@andylevy finally someone in the press has the courage to be cynical about politicians. This will change everything

You really won’t believe this absurdity from the politics editor for National Journal, Josh Kraushaar. As Twitchy reported, news broke that the White House had done a “full court press cover-up on” the Secret Service prostitution scandal prior to the election. Shocked? The sane aren’t, but apparently that doesn’t include Kraushaar.
Here’s what Kraushaar had to say:
First instinct is to trust what the WH is saying, but they've squandered a lot of that trust lately.

What in the actual hell?
Twitter users quickly schooled the fool.
Are you kidding me? First instinct is to *trust* the WH? Wow @HotlineJosh

Wait, stop…on what possible basis could you say this? RT @HotlineJosh: First instinct is to trust what the WH is saying…

Heh. Patterns upon patterns.
@HotlineJosh Why, exactly, is that your first instinct?

@HotlineJosh The hell has the White House done since forever for you to say trust them? They obfuscate everything!

“Real journalist,” guys!
How old are you, twelve? What adult would EVER assume politicians told the truth by default? @HotlineJosh

You’re a fucking reporter. Your first instinct should be the OPPOSITE. This isn’t hard. @HotlineJosh

Yep. Of course, the Fourth Estate is dead so he does fit right in as a bootlicker.
