It was the day before America’s birthday and the liberal media was still decrying President Trump’s “Salute to America” celebration on the National Mall. While they were suddenly concerned about federal government spending (after not caring about it during the Obama years), ABC and CBS suggested Trump was “muddying” the holiday by constructing a “Trump-focused campaign-style rally” for himself.
As if they rolled in to conquer Washington D.C., ABC correspondent Stephanie Ramos began her World News Tonight report by dramatically declaring: “Tonight, armored combat vehicles on the National Mall. President Trump promising, quote, ‘The show of a lifetime.’ The military hardware moved in overnight on flatbed trucks.”
“The President's opponents fear he's turning a traditionally nonpartisan event into a Trump-focused campaign-style rally,” she suggested, because “the White House has given VIP tickets to the Republican National Committee and top donors.” Yet, Obama treated his top donors and celebrity friends like VIPs with special invitations to White House events. Speaking of which, CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King was one such person.
California Senator Kamala Harris (D) appeared to the liberal media’s favorite for president after the first round of debates. So, it was no surprise that Ramos played a soundbite of the Senator chiding the President’s plans. “I don't think he understands this is America's birthday, not his birthday,” Harris said.
