Interesting Contrasts Dept.

     Does anyone else remember how the mainstream media treated President George W. Bush on September 11, 2001? When Dubya received notice of the attack on the World Trade Center, he was reading a story to a classroom full of kids. He continued to do so for a few minutes before attending to the horrifying news from Manhattan. Media flacks screamed and shrieked and poured oceans of vitriol on him for not instantly dropping everything and flying to New York.

     The media’s treatment of “Sleepless Joe” Biden for his two-weeks-late reactions to recent events in Maui has been a bit different:

     LAHAINA, Hawaii — President Biden and first lady Jill Biden arrived in this grief-stricken community Monday afternoon, touring damage from one of the deadliest wildfires in American history and attempting to channel one of the president’s signature traits: comforting those who have lost loved ones.

     Read the rest, if you have a strong stomach for fawning and hypocrisy. Oh, and don’t you dare, you shameless right-winger, claim that Biden fell asleep at the memorial service:

     Conservative pundits used low-quality video on social media platforms Tuesday to spread a false claim that President Joe Biden fell asleep during a memorial for Maui wildfire victims.
     Fox News host Sean Hannity was among those who shared low-resolution video on X, the social media app formerly known as Twitter. Hannity’s post was viewed more than 425,000 times within a few hours, and similar videos posted by others received thousands more views on YouTube, Instagram and TikTok.

     Biden’s eyes were closed and his chin was practically resting on his upper chest…but he wasn’t asleep. He was just resting his eyes. How could you defame the man by saying otherwise?

     “Trust the mainstream media!!” — the mainstream media.


  1. It wasn’t very long, he MAY have been praying, and, to be fair, he did cross a few time zones.
    I’m going to be charitable about it.

      Charitable? Nah. If he can’t handle it, resign. He has made too many gaffs during his stint in office and decades in government to warrant any charity.
