Calling the paper a tabloid is an ad hominem attack. Instead you should point out the lie.
That's a decent counter argument! Thank you.
New York Post is a tabloid. That's a fact.
An ad hominem attack would have been to discredit the Press Secretaries argument by my statement. I don't think we can argue that "Must be 2020" is
anything other than an acknowledgement of the relative rarity of a Press Secretary holding up a tabloid as evidence of anything.
I make a statement, which is factual, and then I made a tangential observation, which is an opinion.
I'm serious when I say this, good on you for thinking logically and forensically. We need more of that.
