Tough call. It will depend on what your definition of ‘pathetic’ is.
Here’s the contender from the animal kingdom:
And now the media’s contender:

If the public ever wanted to get a taste of just how hopelessly partisan and unreliable the mainstream press has become, all they need to do is pay attention to how they act around politicians.
When reporters are covering a Republican, they are always in a bad mood. The questions are hostile and argumentative. Reporters never let a Republican politician stick to talking points. They interrupt. They scoff. They exchange eye rolls. They always ask tough follow-up questions.
But when it’s a Democrat, the atmosphere is always calm and friendly. Reporters always laugh at a Democrat’s jokes, particularly if the jokes are at the expense of a Republican. They act apologetic if they are posing a “difficult” question. They rarely press an issue that the Democratic politician doesn’t want to talk about. They let Democrats filibuster and set the agenda.
After Hillary had been refusing press conferences for the better part of a year and having the revelation this weekend that her emails were destroyed AFTER being subpoenaed, you’d expect reporters would be eager to ask some tough questions. Right?
The best one media “bloodhound” could muster was to meekly say to Clinton: “Now’s a good time for questions, right?”
To which, Clinton responded: “I want you to offer it (the tray of chocolates) to all the press here. So wonderful, so cooperative.”
There wasn’t a peep of protest from any reporter present at this blatant affront to their objectivity and professionalism. Hillary just moved on.
“So wonderful, so cooperative.”
Hillary couldn’t have said it any better.
