WaPo Viciously Mocked For ‘Bizarre’ Tank Abrams Profile Comparing Her To ‘A Runway Supermodel’


The Washington Post of "Democracy Dies in the Newsroom" fame was soundly mocked on the tweeter after publishing a dramatic profile of the shadow Governor of Georgia and VP in waiting, Tank Abrams. The profile called “The Power of Stacey Abrams” includes a long description comparing Abrams, to “a runway supermodel.” complete with a picture of her wearing a freakin' cape.
DC - Pandemonium ensues as she walks to the far left of the stage, like a runway supermodel, stops on a dime, poses, tilts her head slightly and smiles. Camera flashes explode. She next pivots and walks slowly to the center of the stage, freezes there and repeats the pose. Again, the flashes explode. Abrams is summoning her inner actress, and she is both enjoying the moment and getting through it to get to the conversation. 
She then pivots and walks to the far right of the stage, same. You wonder whether she has done this before, because it is not necessarily what one would expect from a 46-year-old politician who was nearly elected the first black female governor in U.S. history. 
Abrams’s feature in WaPo sparked many to mock the publication’s “bizarre” piece on the vice presidential hopeful. “Have any Wash Post reporters resigned in embarrassment this morning?” Stephen L. Miller, host of the “Versus Media Podcast” on Patreon, tweeted Sunday morning. “No? Cool, so we’re all on board with supermodel Stacey Abrams then. How does something like this even make it past editors who care about their reputations?” Miller wrote in another tweet, highlighting the paragraph where Abrams is compared to a supermodel. 
New York Post reporter Jon Levine wrote that it was “disturbing that so many of my colleagues at other news orgs don’t realize how bad this kind of hagiography makes us look.” The comments included assurances that the piece is, in fact, real. The profile was written by left-wing activist Kevin Powell, who has made numerous unsuccessful runs for Congress....."
I do like the way she parts her teeth, but Supermodel?  Please, get me a barf bucket.....
