Mike Pompeo is totally incapable of controlling what he puts in his mouth, as anyone who looks at him can see.
Is it any surprise that he is also incapable of controlling his emotions?
You must understand: fat people will do anything.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo launched into a profanity-laced rant against an NPR reporter after an interview, the news organization says, apparently frustrated by questions he had been asked about Ukraine and former ambassador Marie Yovanovitch.
During an interview with NPR’s Mary Louise Kelly that aired Friday, Pompeo refused to say whether he owed an apology to Yovanovitch, whose firing has featured prominently in President Trump’s impeachment inquiry. An aide ended the interview after Kelly pressed Pompeo for a response.
Kelly recounted what happened next in a report that accompanied her interview. She said a staffer brought her to Pompeo’s private sitting room, where he was waiting for her. Even though she was not allowed to bring her recording equipment into the room, she said there was no request that she keep the exchange off the record, and she would not have agreed to a conversation if it was off the record.
“He shouted at me for about the same amount of time as the interview itself had lasted,” Kelly reported.
“He asked me, ‘Do you think Americans care about Ukraine?’ ” she continued. “He used the ‘F word’ in that sentence and many others. He asked if I could find Ukraine on a map. I said yes; he called out for his aides to bring him a map of the world with no writing, no countries marked. I pointed to Ukraine; he put the map away. He said, ‘People will hear about this.’ “
That’s crazy that he has a map ready to use against journalists. That’s like some slapstick comedy behavior.
He’s also saying that Americans don’t care about the Ukraine, which is funny, because the entire policy he pushes with regards to the Ukraine is that Americans are extremely concerned about them having a good democracy with many different human rights.
Kelly said Pompeo was not “not happy to have been questioned about Ukraine,” though during the recorded interview, she told Pompeo she cleared the topics of Ukraine and Iran with his aides beforehand.
In a statement released early Saturday, Pompeo confirmed that a conversation had taken place after the interview. But he accused Kelly of having “lied to me, twice,” first in setting up the terms of the interview and then again in agreeing to keeping the “post-interview conversation” off the record.
“It is shameful that this reporter chose to violate the basic rules of journalism and decency,” the secretary said. “This is another example of how unhinged the media has become in its quest to hurt President Trump and this Administration. It is no wonder that the American people distrust many in the media when they so consistently demonstrate their agenda and their absence of integrity.”
The statement ended with a vague, unexplained assertion – “It is worth noting that Bangladesh is NOT Ukraine” – that seemed to imply that Kelly, who holds a master’s degree in European studies from Cambridge University, got her geography wrong.
Yeah, I bet she did.
Or maybe they think it’s an underwater base?
Like the Hall of Doom?
Journalists are some of the lowest IQ people in the country – these people literally want to be novelists – so I would expect that the average journalist knows less about the world than the average random person.
And women in general are dumber than a sack of bricks. They literally think about nothing other than having sex with black men and where they can take their next public poop.
So, I don’t have a dog in a cat fight between Fat Mike the Neocon and some dumb bitch, but you would certainly hope that members of the president’s cabinet know better than to sink to the level of a filthy journalist slut and engage her in a cat fight.
It is a shame on the face of America to have high level officials going down that low.
I wish we could do a Stormer game and see how many people can identify the Ukraine and Iran on maps. I think you guys would score well. But if we do an online test, it defeats the purpose, as people can cheat.
