“You people in the lame-stream media go out of you way to write mean and nasty things about me,” the president whined at his press conference. “Why don’t you ever write about all of the wonderful things I’ve done for this country and all of my great accomplishments in my first term in office.”
A journalist from one of the nation’s most highly respected newspaper stood up and responded to the president. “Sir,” he said, “you stand before us and tell lie after lie. You take no responsibility for the catastrophes brought about by your ineptness and incompetence, and you attempt to blame everyone but yourself for the terrible state our country is in. Sir, it will be a cold day in hell before I knowingly lie to my readers as you knowingly lie to the American people.”
The other journalists all stood and applauded their colleague.
