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.

And you are the arbiter of the Constitution?

Nah.


As the US Constitution constrains government activity, every US Citizen is an arbiter of the Constitution .
