All Hysteria, All the Time

In a way, the Left’s ability to go bonkers in lockstep is impressive. You have to give them credit for message discipline, if nothing else. The idea that a 90-day stay on travel from Yemen, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia and Libya is of any particular significance–let alone the crisis of the age!–is crazy. But on the Left these days, craziness isn’t just permitted, it is required.

There are many ways to gauge the Left’s overreaction to Trump’s executive order. Here is one: the main page of Note that every single story is about Trump’s order, and nearly all of them attack it. “Travel ban blasted,” indeed! Click to enlarge:

If World War III broke out, CNN could not devote its home page any more fully to the war than it did to the president’s 90-day travel stay. At this point, I have no idea which side will be hurt worse–the Trump administration for its inept implementation of the travel hiatus, or the left-wing press, for its juvenile and dishonest hysteria. I am hoping, of course, for the latter.
