Hardly news, but we couldn’t help but laugh when we saw the failing dumpster fire that is the New York Times characterize Mexico’s rush to agree to terms the moment tariffs were about to hit their avocado exports this way (no link because fuck ’em, that’s why):
Having threatened Mexico with an escalating series of tariffs — starting at 5 percent and growing to 25 percent — the president faced enormous criticism from global leaders, business executives, Republican and Democratic lawmakers, and members of his own staff that he risked disrupting a critical marketplace.
After nine days of uncertainty, Mr. Trump backed down and accepted Mexico’s promises.
We have to hand it to them: The old Pravda, Izvestia and Völkischer Beobachter have nothing on the New York Times.
None of those three would have ever dared be that brazen in their lies.
