Media Slam Trump Admin For Not 'Social Distancing' While Ignoring Unmasked Mobs of Protesters

(Update 8/30/20: Upon request POLITICO's Dan Diamond desired to have it noted that on occasion he has tweeted about the public health risks of protests, which he indeed has, but the examples he sent were not retweeted by CNN's Brian Stelter. The final paragraph of this story adds this information.)

In true double-standard fashion, the leftists media are now accusing the Trump administration of posing a public health threat during last night’s Republican National Convention by gathering in the Rose Garden, all while blatantly ignoring – and even justifying, in many cases – violent protester’s who’ve gathered by the thousands in the streets and accosted innocent citizens while not wearing masks or practicing social distancing.

In a tweet shared by CNN’s Brian Stelter, POLITICO’s Dan Diamond accused the administration of “modeling bad public health behavior.”

Radio host Tom Nichols blasted the administration for “zero social distancing,” comparing Trump to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

Vox’s Aaron Rupar shared a deceptive photo of the crowd in which the chairs – and the people in them – appeared far closer together than they actually were.

Author and GQ correspondent Julia Ioffe sarcastically mocked the gathering.

At the same time, viral video showing left-wing protesters - some of them unmasked, and all of them clustered shoulder-to-shoulder - screaming mindlessly at restaurant patrons has gone unnoticed or disregarded by the liberal media, who only appear to notice a public health crisis when it plays into their anti-Trump narrative.


Even POLITICO's Dan Diamond has noticed the health risks of protesting, but his tweets on that subject don't seem to be shared by CNN's Stelter for some reason.
