The New York Times buried a Hogg trap inside a recent article on Ambassador Nikki Haley. The headline reads, “Nikki Haley’s View of New York Is Priceless. Her Curtains? $52,701.” A Rootin-Tootin Media Hogg named David saw that and whipped out his virtue-signaling sicks-shooters to unload on the U.S. Ambassador to the UN.
There are starving children in America everyday and you have the audacity to misappropriate thousands of tax dollars for your own lavish lifestyle. Resign immediately.
Six paragraphs into the Times piece we find out that Haley, Trump, and The State Department “inherited the extravagant window coverings” from the previous administration.
A spokesman for Ms. Haley said plans to buy the curtains were made in 2016, during the Obama administration. Ms. Haley had no say in the purchase, he said.
I guess it’s ‘curtains’ for Mr. Hogg’s outrage unless he’d like to reload and take a shot at the actual perpetrators. The Obama administration and its state department spent $52,701.00 on some window-dressing while the economy was slugging along at a growth rate of 1.6%.
Probably not but Hogg wasn’t the only one incensed. The Daily Wire reports that the NYT eventually relented and issued a correction.
No word yet on whether David Hogg plans to target the money paid for his armed security at anti-gun events (to feed starving children) to make up for the Obama-Era faux pas.
