Edit: Sorry, I've just had a bit of time to think, and I'm not so sure that Pompeo is aware of What Is Happening. Pretty sure you'd need more self-awareness than can be afforded someone who, just this morning, used a written statement issued by "The State Department" to slander one of NPR's most accomplished journalists! The weight of that is slowly sinking in, among the uppercuts to truth dealt by Trump's impeachment "defense team".
Do you see what you did there? Lemme pull it out for you:
is aware of What Is Happening.
"What Is Happening" is Twitter register. Because of imperfect terminology it's difficult to chase down exactly where this comes from but as one pedant on that page mentions, patient zero is probably AA Milne.
A new series of Winnie the Pooh theatrical feature-length films launched in the 2000s, with The Tigger Movie (2000), Piglet's Big Movie (2003), Pooh's Heffalump Movie (2005), and Winnie the Pooh (2011).
Disney has also produced television series based on the franchise, including Welcome to Pooh Corner (Disney Channel, 1983–1986), The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (ABC, 1988–1991), The Book of Pooh (Playhouse Disney, 2001–2003), and My Friends Tigger & Pooh (Playhouse Disney, 2007–2010).
For the record: Winnie the Pooh was not a thing when GenX was a kid. Yeah, Disney put their shit out in theaters but that's back when Disney didn't let you see shit unless it was in theaters and if it was on Disney Channel? Fuckin' nightmare fuel.
It also wasn't a thing when the 'boomers were kids. the 'boomers grew up with Mickey Mouse Club - that's back when The Mouse was super-protective of their own IP. So it's fair to say that If You Are Talking Like This you are signaling to people with shared cultural mores - you know Kung Fu Panda, not Hong Kong Fuey.
What about Trumpland?
People bitch all the time about how Trump can't figure out how to use quotes. They are stupid. Trump uses quotes the way his base uses quotes.
Broad generalization: If you know what scare quotes are, you believe in the Oxford comma. If you don't know what scare quotes are, you believe in death panels.
Your mistake is that you think Pompeo should be talking to you. But why would he do that? He never had you. No one in the administration has ever been given the benefit of the doubt by you - I mean, you weren't willing to give Rex Tillerson the benefit of the doubt and he was ten times the Secy of state Pompeo is.
Pompeo knows that if you stomp your feet and act like Karen when her coupon got rejected, the only people your boss cares about get energized.
Which is more logical: that the Secretary of State thought the media and intelligentisia and nomenklatura would believe an NPR reporter couldn't find Bangladesh on a map... or that the Secretary of State knew the voters who will do anything to own the libs just needed a vaguely plausible insult in order to be comfortable in their dudgeon?
If you look at the Republican Party as an organization that will do anything to feed the monster it all makes sense. You are not the monster so the only reason they give a shit about you is if fucking with your life makes the monster happy.
And the monster has the courts, and the monster has an electoral advantage, and the monster is better at raising money, and the monster asks fewer questions.
