Nothing Burger

Nothing Burger1

So a fun political buzzword we keep hearing lately is “Nothing Burger.”  I mean, It’s a term that’s been around for like 70 years, but in the age of “fake news” and non-stop information flooding every aspect of our existence, parsing the things that have real significance from the things that don’t is tangible problem. Take the infamous memo released this weekend.  While Trump claims it completely vindicates him, eagle eyed viewers would recognize that it’s mostly just an accusatory document attacking the quality of evidence used to secure a surveillance warrant.  In political terms, it can, and probably should be argued that it is the dictionary definition of a Nothing Burger.  While I don’t think the Republicans are the only people in government utilizing the concept, they are certainly turning it into an art.
