Diseased prostitutes, sewer urchins, and rotten banana vendors.
Three things that have higher standards than CNN. And speaking of CNN, after the whole ‘labradoodle breeder’ smear had been thoroughly discredited, it decided to publish, “A Labradoodle breeder, an internet thug and a college senior walk into the White House.”
“Brian Harrison, who serves as the chief of staff to Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, was tasked with handling the department’s virus response in January. Before joining the Trump administration in January 2018, however, he spent six years as top dog at Dallas Labradoodles, according to personal financial disclosure forms cited by Reuters. The company sells the crossbreed dogs at $2,700 a pop,” the CNN piece claims.
CNN decided to run this even after the Dallas Morning News, hardly a beacon of right-wing politics, took this nonsense apart.
No, the Trump administration did not put a professional dog breeder from Dallas in charge of COVID-19 response.
Yes, the chief of staff at the Department of Health and Human Services briefly owned a family business raising Labradoodles. But he’s also served three administrations in high level posts at HHS, the White House and the Pentagon.
But facts haven’t stopped everyone from Chris Hayes at MSNBC to Vanity Fair to CNN from recycling this idiotic smear.
Meanwhile CNN is run by the guy who came up with the idea of the Today Show window.
