Pompeo condescends to NPR's Kelly: 'I hope she finds peace'

The Mike Pompeo/Mary Louise Kelly/NPR saga continues:


“Look, go back and take a look. There’s a lot of history with NPR and Mike Pompeo and Iran. It goes back to 2015. 2015, where NPR lied. They took money from Ploughshares, and were part of the Ben Rhodes echo chamber and they ultimately had to go on air and say, ‘Yup, it’s true, we took money from Ploughshares and didn’t disclose it’ after enormous pressure from Congressman Pompeo. So there’s a lot of history there. So I took a leap of faith with Mary Louise, invited her to the State Department back in December, we had a great conversation, she asked me if I’d do her the favor of granting her an interview. I said sure, there’s a lot of history to fix. Let’s talk about Iran. She agreed that we would talk about Iran and we set up an interview. I hope she finds peace.”

Gee, I hope we all find peace. But it’s become increasingly difficult with these bumbling bumpkins running our foreign policy and bringing us to the brink of war with Iran over and over again.

Condescend much, Mike Pompeo?

And, of course, anyone who talks about himself in the third person automatically gets the benefit of the doubt. Aldous J. Pennyfarthing has deemed it so.

Pennyfarthing are the comic therapy you need. Reviewers have called these books “hysterically funny,” “cathartic,” and “laugh-out-loud” comic relief.
