By now, you’ve probably heard about GOP Sen. Rand Paul being surrounded by an angry mob last night.
Just got attacked by an angry mob of over 100, one block away from the White House. Thank you to @DCPoliceDept for literally saving our lives from a crazed mob.

What you may not have heard, though, is that Rand Paul was just being whiny. Good thing the AP was all over that angle:
I can't believe he complained. Clearly he's the villain. pic.twitter.com/pd491noxij

This is a real headline from the Associated Press. https://t.co/25uWpsAU04

It’s no “bed-wetting snowflake,” but it’s pretty close.
The air quotes make it.

I hope this doesn't escalate into pouncing.

This is how you say “Republicans pounce” when Republicans are literally being pounced upon.

Imagine for just a second what this @AP headline would like like if a Democratic Senator and his wife left a Joe Biden speech and were attacked by a mob.

It seems as if, impossibly almost, the media have decided to lean into the villain role over the course of the last 3 months. They always have been the villains, but it feels as if they've fully embraced their roles now. This is who they are.
