THE BIZARRO WORLD VERSION OF WAG THE DOG: Latest Chicago and Minneapolis riots broke out over police killings that never happened.

Motss: What do you think about lining the President up for the Peace Prize?
Brean: Our job’s over come election day.
Motss: Yeah, but c’mon…
Brean: What, just for the symmetry of the thing? [Motss nods] Well, if Kissinger can win the Peace Prize, I wouldn’t be surprised if I woke up and found I’d won the Preakness.
Motss: Yeah, but our guy did bring peace.
Brean: There was never a war.
Motss: All the greater accomplishment.

Of course, this is far from the first time a violent and destructive riot was built on a lie, as even the Washington Post (sometimes) knows: “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” Did Not Happen In Ferguson.
