As Obama delivered his final UN General Assembly speech to a world on the precipice of collapse Tuesday morning, news broke that rocked the Internet and sent its users into simultaneous fits of knee-hugging weepery.

Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Hollywood super-hunk Brad Pitt.

Of course, the lamestream media, as it is wont to do, kicked into overdrive in an effort to distract the news-consuming public from the devastating divorce with a “hard hitting” piece in the Washington Post exposing Donald Trump’s apparent violation of self-dealing laws by using his own charity to settle personal lawsuits.

The piece, written by journalist David A. Fahrenthold, and conjured as if from nowhere like some on-demand misdirection tactic, details case after case of shady business dealings, purchases, and litigations taken from Trump Foundation’s tax filings, which are by law required to be public. According to this report, Trump appears to have spent over a quarter million dollars of other people’s money for his personal and business gain.

Meanwhile, the tug-of-war between substantive celebrity journalism and liberal misdirection reached a fever pitch, as journalists and politically minded individuals began to deceptively tweet Brangelina-angled headlines that—surprise!—purposefully pointed to the Washington Post story, proving how brazen they are in their attempts to hijack the news cycle.

Wow, talk about dishonest!
