This bullshit never stops: We don't know who composes the headlines at The Daily Beast.
Two days ago, the headline writer was earning his or her keep.
Here's another way to say it—this bullshit never stops! Even as we slide toward the sea, the children continue to pleasure themselves by shoveling headlines like these:
Revealed: Bill Clinton’s Intimate Secret Dinner With Ghislaine Maxwell
The former president invited Ghislaine Maxwell to a cozy dinner in L.A. in 2014, years after she had been accused by a victim of procuring girls for Epstein’s sex ring.
Those are the headlines which sit above an exciting "report" by The Beast's exciting Kate Briquelet.
Briquelet is bad enough; the headline writer is worse. For the record, there is no indication in the report that it was Clinton who invited Maxwell to the intimate, secret, extremely crowded dinner in question.
That claim seems to have emerged from the headline writer's thrill-seeking, sex-obsessed brain.
That said, how about it? Did Bill Clinton actually enjoy an "intimate secret dinner" with Maxwell? Was it a "cozy" affair?
Maybe it all depends on what the meaning of "secret" is! Not to mention "intimate" and "cozy!"
Was it really a secret affair? If you read Briquelet's pitiful effort, you learn that the "secret" dinner was held at a crowded "Melrose Avenue hotspot" (that's in L.A.) with roughly half the west coast present.
("That night, the restaurant was bustling," Briquelet reveals.)
You also learn that the dinner in question took place in February 2014. That was more than six years ago!
The dinner was so "intimate" that "the man now rumored to be Maxwell's husband" was also part of the large dinner party inside the crowded hotspot. According to Briquelet, this was taken as a sign that Maxwell had dumped her previous long-standing boyfriend, Gateway's billionaire co-founder.
Just so amazingly cool!
Returning to our major inquiry, how cozy was the intimate dinner to which Clinton doesn't seem to have invited Maxwell? It was so cozy that Sean Penn was part of the large party with whom Clinton was dining, possibly acting as chaperone at the "swanky soiree."
"Hours earlier," Briquelet reveals, "the men rubbed elbows at the Unite4:Humanity gala at a Sony Pictures Studios lot, where singer Demi Lovato and other celebrities took selfies with the former president. Clinton, who received a 'unity recognition award,' was the keynote speaker."
Did we mention the fact that this cozy, intimate, secret dinner took place more than six years ago? Inside a crowded but also bustling hotspot with half the universe present?
Alas! This bullshit is a very significant part of the way our failing nation reached its current state. Our dull-witted tribe has never quite been able to figure this basic fact out. (More on that tomorrow.)
Meanwhile, believe it! As the nation slides toward the sea, this bullshit never stops.
Until the nation slides into the sea, the Briquelets will always be with us. They're constantly looking for thrilling new ways to get their juices flowing.
Our advice to these underfed creatures? Enjoy the few moments left!
It was an intimate, secret affair. Half of West Melrose was there!
