Last night, NBC’s Ben Collins who reports on the Internet and “dystopia” breathlessly announced that he had an “enormous scoop.”

Given a busy day of impeachment news, many thought it might somehow be related. Perhaps it was the “smoking gun” for the 2,000,500th time.

But obviously something deserving of the vapors, for sure. Apocalypse level.

Are you ready? Grab a seat and hold on. Here it comes.

President Donald Trump had dinner with Mark Zuckerberg and Peter Thiel.

The dinner was when Zuckerberg was in Washington, D.C. to testify about Facebook’s new cryptocurrency Libra and a week after he spoke at Georgetown about being committed to free speech, NBC said.

“As is normal for a CEO of a major U.S. company, Mark accepted an invitation to have dinner with the President and First Lady at the White House,” a Facebook spokesperson said

That’s it. This is “enormous?”

But apparently this “secret” meeting that Facebook didn’t hide when asked was cause for those in liberal media to meltdown. Because obviously the fact that Zuckerberg and Thiel dared to eat with Trump, like many other people, is a sign of the end times and some evil plot.

Collins retweeted all of these extreme reactions:

MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle

Huffington Post senior reporter Emily Peck

Vox co-founder Matty Iglesias

Corruption? Is there any requirement to be attached to reality anymore?

These folks are seriously disturbed. Apparently, Trump, Thiel and Zuckerberg are going to have a “secret meeting” in the White House to plot the downfall of ‘democracy.’ Not sure how one achieves that through a dinner at the White House. Never mind that if they wanted to have a “secret meeting” they likely wouldn’t do it in front of the multitudes in the White House. Nor would they readily admit it when asked.

How horrible that Thiel might care about “freedom” and that government not restrict freedom of speech. Obviously a threat to “democracy.”

Zuckerberg of course, like a businessman, met with Barack Obama as well.

What’s the crime here? Apparently having the temerity to not announce they were going to have dinner. Maybe they just didn’t want to deal with media conspiracy theorists – people that make up nonsense about the First Lady after she rests for a couple of weeks after surgery. Or people who spread nonsense about Russia collusion.
