Yesterday, the #VeryFakeNews network whose face in the White House is Jim Acosta pretended to be triggered and just plain “shocked, shocked” when “house conservative” commentator Jeffrey Lord facetiously used a phrase popularized by the National SOCIALIST (oftened shorted as “Nazi”) Party in Germany in the late 1920s and 1930s.
Lord made an obviously sarcastic tweet saying “Sieg Heil!” (in conjunction with the commonly accepted term “grammar nazi”) during a Twitter back-and-forth with Media Matters president and left-wing activist Angelo Carusone in which Carusone corrected Lord’s spelling.
And here’s full thread. His hit piece on me spelled my name wrong, literally in the headline, I pointed it out and he screams “Sieg Heil!” pic.twitter.com/eHJdnzSYSp

Media Matters received a $1 million donation in the past from George Soros, who, despite being born into a Jewish family, was a collaborator with the National Socialists during the Holocaust.
“Grammar nazi” is a commonly-used term that only tends to offend those who go through life looking to be offended, much as the term “Soup Nazi” on Seinfeld was not considered particularly offensive.

Numerous reactions from right-of-center individuals popular on Twitter could be characterized as “outraged … but what the hell do you expect from #VeryFakeNews CNN?!”
Media smears Jeffrey Lord for making “Nazi gesture” when he was clearly satirizing the left. https://t.co/Du3w9a7m3l

CNN is truly a farce & a joke. I’ve known Jeff Lord for decades. He’s a thoroughly decent & thoughtful person…. https://t.co/IMPXFDGVii

Former CNN contributor Jeffrey Lord spoke to Steve Malzberg on Thursday about North Korea, among other things, and Lord thinks that Trump’s critics in Washington should take a look at history before casting judgement on his tough talk and rhetoric.
