The liberal media clutch their pearls when President Trump levels criticisms, nicknames, and insults against his political opponents, but when it’s the other way around, they celebrate it. A couple of hours before the evening newscasts aired on ABC, CBS, and NBC, presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden took part in a softball interview on CNN. What piqued the interest of the broadcast networks was Biden lashing out at the President for criticizing his Memorial Day mask, calling Trump “an absolute fool.”
Hyping their “war of words” on World News Tonight, ABC anchor David Muir recalled how the President and took “aim at Biden for wearing a mask,” before touting how Biden was “now responding tonight in a new interview saying of the President, he’s ‘an absolute fool to talk that way.’”
ABC congressional correspondent Mary Bruce wanted to show “The two candidates in stark contrast,” and chided the President. “President Trump in a factory without a mask, surrounded by people who are all wearing them. And his rival Joe Biden, out for the first time publicly since March. His own face, covered,” she said.
Touting how Biden was “firing right back,” Bruce played a soundbite of Biden calling Trump “a fool” and blaming him for the coronavirus death toll.
