The big lie does have its comedic value at times. Note the appeals to an imaginary consensus of trust and belief in the government and media, the condemnation of truthers “antisemitism” and “insensitivity to family members”, the invention of multiple “credible” investigations out of whole cloth (there was only one official “investigation” and it was hardly credible), the denigration of scientific analysis and the extraordinary effort to delineate exactly what is and is not to be believed. Their failure as propagandists is manifest. Emily looks like she’s just snorted a line. I’m reminded of why I never watch CNN or read Slate. These people have absolutely no shame, especially when you consider that they are accomplices to mass murder.
