The Sad State of Presidential News Coverage

The media just hasn’t been very fair to President Donald Trump.

There may be a federal government shut down and none of it would be his fault. The Congress may fail to take advantage of his very superior capacity to make deals and his input to the process as a stable genius. If the media were more objective, they would favorably compare our President to other historical figures.

Our President is much taller than was President Madison. He is not as obese as was President Taft. He has more hair than did President Eisenhower. He is not as divisive as was Confederate President Jefferson Davis. He insults fewer people than did comedian Don Rickles. He has offended fewer woman than has movie producer Harvey Weinstein. He is more handsome than was President Lincoln. He has never owned slaves as did President Washington. He is just as honest as was Richard Nixon. He has smoked fewer cigarettes than President Franklin D. Roosevelt. He has had fewer wives than did King Henry VIII of England and has put none of them to death. He has been as just as faithful a husband as President Clinton. He is just a good a Christian as Jimmy Swaggart. His residence is less opulent than was that of King Louis XVI of France. Like President Jefferson, he has made a significant contribution to higher education in America. President Jefferson founded the still prestigious University of Virginia. President Trump founded Trump University.

The failure of the media to recognize these favorable comparisons obviously shows blatant bias. Sad.
