I've noticed as I've flipped around between news networks, that there are double-standards in play in their coverage. Nothing unusual of course, as that's how they roll. Democrats and the mainstream media immediately gave President Obama dramatic praise for taking out Bin Laden, but this time, it's not the President's success, it's the military's. I do believe that most of the credit should go to all those involved in the operation from planning to execution but it's the fact that Obama got credit and Trump isn't, that bothers me. Double-standards are a major pet peeve for me.
Instead of focusing on the huge win for the U.S. in taking out someone who has brutally murdered many of our citizens (including beheadings), their coverage was about Trump's press conference and that he didn't tell leaders in the Democratic Party what they were going to do. How could he? The leaks have been terrible and the last thing the Democrats would want is for there to be a successful mission. It is the potential leaks that allows a President to decide who is in the loop during special military operations. He did nothing un-Constitutional although Democrats and the media are attempting to paint this picture.
Leaks are a greater concern now than ever before. It's no longer country first, it's politics first. What's truly best for our country is now on the backburner in a constant power grab by both parties. Democrats and the mainstream media want Trump taken down and they want big wins in 2020; it's a very clear objective.
The media said little about the great victory but spent their time attacking Trump for what he said and how he said it during the press conference. The thing about being fake news is that it's not only what you cover and how you cover it, but also what you don't cover. They didn't want President Trump to have a moment so they did everything in their power to take it away from the actual story of what was accomplished and focused instead on his personal characteristics. They have no integrity.
