Yes, he did.

Ben Jacobs of Newsweek and The Daily Beast took to Twitter to expose his douchebaggery. As Twitchy reported, Honor Flight World War II veterans knocked down the government shutdown barricades on the National Mall in order to visit the memorial to veterans. The vets have reportedly been threatened with arrest now.

To “real journalist” Ben Jacobs, this was an opportunity to mock both veterans and those who are rightly outraged by the ludicrous government barricades.

Jacobs wasn’t alone. The foul Jonathan Chait was the first to jump aboard the douche-train. He then mocked “faux outrage.”

Poor persecuted Chait!

Fellow New York Mag-er Stefan Becket upped the jackassery both in reply to Chait and Jacobs.

Pathetic.

Twitter users rightly gave them the business.

Ha! Well, he does “work” for The Daily Beast, so he’ll probably get a promotion. Plus, he may be too busy for such polishing.

Zing!

And Iowahawk brings it all home with some snark perspective:

Bingo.
