On Sunday, model Emily Ratajkowski was at a party and something happened that sent her to twitter:

I’m not a particular fan of Ratajkowski… though I will admit her appearance in Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” music video exhibited an extraordinary level of artistry, in fact, I’d go so far as to say it represents the utter pinnacle of the classic “prance and jiggle” genre… and in general I am in disagreement with her position on the irrelevance of personal choices by a public person. We Catholics call this “scandal,” that is, a person in the position to influence others conducts themselves in such a way to let others think improper behavior is okay. What is concerning is that you have a New York Times reporter being called out as the person calling Melania Trump a hooker. Equally concerning is the fact this reporter’s employer, The New York Times, just doesn’t care:

Editors at the New York Times have reprimanded a reporter for referring to first lady Melania Trump as a “hooker” at an event Sunday night, calling the remarks “completely inappropriate.”

The reporter in question, who has not been identified by the paper, came under fire Monday morning after supermodel Emily Ratajkowski made the reporter’s remarks public in a series of tweets…

This is unbelievable. Not that long ago, we were all told we had to be in awe of the intelligence, charm, and femininity of Michelle Obama. Remember when any mockery of her was racism? Remember when people got fired for saying unflattering things about her on Facebook? Well, those day are gone. The first lady is now fair game for taunts and insults, not by rather anonymous individuals but by reporters at major publications. And reporters at major newspapers are now held to a lower standard of behavior that a teacher’s aide somewhere in Georgia. All of this just goes to show that Steve Bannon was 100% correct that the media is now the opposition party to the Trump administration.
