“Sycophant” or “Sicko Fan”?
I’ll be honest, I was not familiar with the term “sycophant” until probably 2012 and I feel I have a fairly decent vocabulary. Let’s have a “look-see” and learn a new word, shall we?
Sycophant: a person who praises powerful people in order to get their approval, or a servile self-seeking flatterer
I read the term “sycophant” associated with figures in the media, in particular “Mr. Tingles”, Chris Matthews. The clip below shows Chris Matthews practically wetting himself gushing over a speech by then candidate Obama. Sadly, Obama’s “skill” as an orator is sort of facilitated by a teleprompter, and it’s not what we say, it’s what we DO, our character that defines us as a person; words are cheap.
The clip below “Mr. Tingles” shows the speech in which Obama said he could “halt the rise of the oceans and heal the planet”. Seriously? Who believes this tripe? He can’t even pass a budget…and…if he can “heal the planet”, go ahead and pass the Keystone project already and quit wasting money on “climate change”.
