Grasping for metaphor, indeed:

And as any event involving the combination of garbage, fire, and a large crowd—coupled with its convenient location right outside the office of a major news organization—does, the small blaze caught the attention of seemingly every reporter within sprinting distance.

  10. “Oh listen it was a vigorous race. He competed hard. I competed hard,” Cruz told WFAA in an interview at his fourth floor office on Capitol Hill. “He won. The people decided. He’s the president now and I’m energized.”

    In a surprise appearance at Texas’ Black Tie and Boots Presidential Inaugural Ball last night, Donald Trump, Jr. made a similar declaration telling the crowd that his family’s relationship with Cruz “didn’t start great but it is now.”

    “He’s a great friend,” Trump, Jr. added.

  18. Popehat, very funny!

    Why don’t the media just call Central Casting and order up a fire and demonstration and have it in their parking lot? Instant news! Would save money and free up the city to continue with activity uninterrupted by staged events like this.
