Somethin' 'bout a truck

Ace looks at the twitter sensation of the day - Do you know anybody who owns a truck?
Sean Davis rounds up the hysterical overreactions by people in the media -- and liberals who apparently consider themselves to be reporters by proxy (I guess on the theory that anyone on Twitter is a "reporter") -- and it's a sumptuous feast of stupid.
There were basically three types of hysterical response to a simple question about truck owners: 1) shut up, 2) you're stupid and/or sexist and/or racist, and 3) whatever, liar, trucks aren't popular (far and away my favorite delusional response to a simple question from a group of people who want you to believe they're extremely concerned about "fake news"). It turns out that people who are paid large sums of money to opine on what Americans outside the Acela province think get very upset if you demonstrate that they don't actually know any of the people about whom they pretend to be experts.

Maybe they need to catch this video.
