Bad News Day


After Donald Trump's acquittal by the US Senate tonight, I saw a tweet saying "Cue: wailing and gnashing of teeth at the BBC". 

We critics of the BBC often predict such BBC behaviour, but Newsnight's off-the-leash twitterers are making such predictions come true. In spades.

Emily Maitlis's Twitter feed in particular is wall-to-wall wailing and teeth-gnashing at the moment. She's seriously not happy with Senator Mitch McConnell. (If ever he agrees to be interviewed by her he should seriously consider wearing body armour from now on). 

And her Newsnight colleague Lewis Goodall is spitting the dummy too. He's positively aghast. All his monocles have plopped into his champagne glass in one go today.

You'd have to have a heart of stone not to laugh.
