Ed Montini needs to learn to code.

Good post. I would add a third logical fallacy to Montini's scorecard. That logical fallacy being the use of a "spin word."

Many words have positive and negative spin versions. Montini called Biggs a "politician" and politician is the negative spin version of elected official. By the way, the positive spin version of elected official is, you guessed it, public servant.

Propagandists such as Montini use these tactics all the time to trick and mislead people. I am glad you call him out. By the way, the greatest book about logical fallacies is "Logic and Contemporary Rhetoric: The Use of Reason in Everyday Life" by Kahane. It is in its 13th printing. If I had my way, I would require all high school students to read it before graduating.
