You know, we could maybe muster up a shred of respect for the media if they were at least willing to pretend to put in some effort … but this take by ABC News political director Rick Klein on the #AbolishICE hashtag suggests that they’re just not anymore:

He actually said “pounce,” you guys. And not just in the headline. In the article, too!
You wouldn't believe the glutes I've built with all this pouncing I keep doing

Did they also seize? I enjoy seizing and pouncing together.

No, sorry. No seizing. Just pouncing.
Hey Rick, shouldn’t the story be about the “movement”, not Republicans reaction to it?
— Brandon Bohning (@BrandonBohning) July 2, 2018
Pffft! That’s just crazy talk!
May I send you a thesaurus?

Don’t bother. It seems they’re quite content with “pounce.” Which apparently means they’re also content with not being taken seriously.
My god…pounce… How predictable.

Media doesn’t even try to come up with a less predictable headline anymore. https://t.co/OGNyCkj0WK

You guys really need to find another trope. This one is worn out.

Literally a “Republicans Pounce” article.
Find a new angle, libs. This one isn’t working.
