#FAKENEWS: Trump Trance Strikes Again: Trump Says ‘Senate Rules,’ Left Hears ‘Constitution.’ “You know, I’m honestly starting to think that Trump has actually driven a lot of people to madness.” Well, to be fair, most of them were close enough to walk. (Emphasis is mine)
Never, ever trust a bureaucracy. This story is an excellent example of bureaucrats putting the lives of children at risk rather than putting their own budget at risk.
The issue is lead in the drinking water in New York city schools.
Reading the story it becomes clear, although never stated, that in advance of testing for lead in the water the authorities were apparently told how they could fudge the tests to ensure a passing grade outcome and they did! The people in charge of the education of children would prefer to run the risk of poisoning them rather than spend the money required to fix their plumbing. Unsurprisingly the authors of the article never bother to make the connection or even ask who is responsible for this. After all, it is the New York Times.
But, don't worry, "...the Education Department said there had never been a known case of lead poisoning traced to drinking water in schools."
Via Charlie Martin at PJ Media a real howler in Trump Derangement Syndrome:
"President Trump Declares Loyalty Day: Collapse of Democracy Imminent"
Of course the left went bonkers throwing around their favorite Trump is Hitler memes. I have mentioned before that the left seems not to have any knowledge of history, American or otherwise. Turns out, in Mr. Martin's telling, that Loyalty Day wasn't created by President Trump the fascist after all!
And then there is this, also courtesy of Mr. Martin:
