Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Are members of the mainstream media conservative? Some, not all. Are they liberal? Nay, that’s also too much of a blanket statement. They can all be a little too comfortable, though, as any group of successful people can be.

SS Calm Water, meet boat-rocker Michelle Wolf. Wolf’s epic rant at the White House Correspondence Dinner offended Democrat and Republican-leaning journalists, but maybe for the wrong reasons.

Jimmy Dore is showing how off-base the attacks on Michelle Wolf’s take-down of Trumpville are. Maggie Haberman, normally a fine reporter for the New York Times, complimented Sarah Huckabee Sanders on how she “sat and absorbed” Wolf’s ridicule of her looks. Except it isn’t true. If anything, Wolf complimented the press secretary’s looks.

Dore can be heavy-handed. But watching Haberman duck, jab and weave when confronted on Twitter is demonstrative. For whatever reason, even some newspaper icons are afraid of hitting Team Trump where it hurts.

Play this rockin’ clip.

Donald Trump Jr.

You've probably heard about Donald Trump's claim that his Democratic rival got "a big fat se onhot in the ass" before delivering a nearly perfect performance on a recently televised town hall. Or his more recent demand that Joe Biden get a "drug test" before their debate on Tuesday night. Having spent months lowering expectations for Biden, the Trumps are now busily defaming him as a junkie.

But that particular slur backfired spectacularly over the weekend when the Trump campaign posted a bizarre video of Don Jr. -- seemingly in a condition that called for rehab services. As his father might put it, "many people are saying" that the presidential spud looked and sounded like someone abusing a controlled substance. (His slurred message was disturbed too, something about an "army of able-bodied men and women" to intimidate voters).

It's both funny and sad to watch Don Jr. decompensate on Twitter. (More funny, though.)

Click and judge his condition for yourself.
