Shorter Verbatim Donald J. Trump: “Katie, she tested very good for a long period of time, and then all of the sudden she tested positive … this is why the whole concept of tests aren’t necessarily great … today, I guess, for some reason, she tested positive.”
One would think that there would be no way of reporting this to make it sound like a coherent, reasonable thought rather than the utter gibberish of a semi-literate man in twenty miles over his head. Even the most dedicated both-sideser, the most experienced practitioner of false equivalence, the most venal access journalist, would be facing an impossible challenge here.
You would be wrong:
That is a stupendous achievement. World-class. Legendary. When they open up the Both-Sideserism Hall of Fame this will go in unanimously on the first ballot.
