Oh man … when even Matt Yglesias is calling your tweet bad, it’s time to re-evaluate your strategy.

As Twitchy told you, reporters fell all over themselves earlier today to bust Donald Trump for being wrong about the cost of Air Force One. It appears, though, that Trump was right. Whoops! But CNBC’s still determined to get a story out of it. So here’s what they came up with:

CNBC’s article includes the dubious $1.65 billion figure. What it does not include, however, is a point.

The tweet is garbage, basically.

Yes. Yes it is.

The thing is, CNBC’s Robert Frank briefly acknowledges that Trump’s private plane isn’t on the same plane, so to speak, as Air Force One:

Aviation experts say Trump’s plane is more luxurious, but Air Force One is a technology marvel, with an anti-missile system, scramblers, massive communications systems and back-up systems. So the two aircraft are not really comparable. But based on the Trump-gold standard for private jets, it’s no wonder he’s demanding a cost cut from Boeing.

So why is this a story? Of the wealth of material out there to lob at Trump, this is what CNBC’s going with?
