Something to Know - 27 October

Things are getting very weirdly crazy in this world.  We have a situation where someone goes into a Saudi consulate in Istanbul, and 18 people are involved in the disappearance of one individual.   It takes weeks to go by and the Saudis fess up that someone (the one guy) is dead.   The president of Turkey, says "okay,,,so where is the body?"   Meanwhile our president has his ass backed into a corner and plumb out of excuses in excusing the crown prince of madness.  And here is the latest work of WEIRD from Andy Borowitz.   This is so weird that you are unable to determine is the really satire or the real thing.   Our world is upended in not knowing what passes  for normal behavior.   Our senses of values are being challenged.   You tell me - is this really satire or real?:

Trump Blasts Media for Reporting Things He Says

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—The Republican Presidential nominee, Donald Trump, tore into the media on Thursday for what he called its "extremely unfair practice" of reporting the things he says.

"I'll say something at a rally and I look out and see all these TV cameras taking every word down," Trump told Fox News's Sean Hannity. "No one in politics has ever been subjected to this kind of treatment."

"It's unbelievable and, frankly, very unethical," he added.

At a rally in Florida, the candidate lashed out at a TV cameraman whom he caught in the act of recording his words for broadcasting purposes.

"Look at him over there, picking up everything I'm saying, folks," Trump shouted. "Get him out of here."

In his interview with Fox, Trump hinted that he might drop out of this fall's televised Presidential debates if the media continues its practice of reporting the things he says.

"I've always said that I would be willing to debate if I'm treated fairly," Trump told Hannity. "But if the media keeps recording everything I say, word for word, and then playing it back so that everyone in the country hears exactly what I said, I would consider that very, very unfair."
