Come on now news media! How ridiculous is it that this is in the news cycle??? It is absurd, foolish, and ludicrous that this even made the news. Just plain dumb!
Once upon a time not so long ago when America had real journalists and we could depend on the news being newsworthy, this “fly-killing” would have be edited out so as not to embarrass the President of the United States whether he was a Democrat or a Republican. It is preposterous that the news division of CNBC edited this into their broadcast to create news. This is NOT news. CNBC should be embarrassed that they no longer have a reputable news team and are depending on insects to create their lead story. I am dumb founded!
It is even more ridiculous that PETA is protesting the “Killing of the Fly”. They have just lost any creditability they had with me. Flies are dirty, germ and disease carrying pests and they all need to be whacked!
Flies are NASTY by nature and collect pathogens on their legs and mouths when females lay eggs on decomposing organic matter such as feces, garbage and animal corpses. Houseflies carry diseases on their legs and the small hairs that cover their bodies. It takes only a matter of seconds for them to transfer these pathogens to food or touched surfaces. Diseases carried by houseflies include typhoid, cholera and dysentery.
I am happy to have a President who is a Ninja fly killer! As a matter of fact, let he or she who has never swatted a fly cast the first rock — um — whack!
