President Trump flew to Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas on Wednesday to visit with wounded and pay his respects to the people who were killed in a pair of mass shootings over the weekend. Instead of that kicking off their political overage for the night, CBS Evening News chose to champion former Vice President and Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden for tearing into the President while campaigning in Iowa.
“It was truly an extraordinary day today with Americans on edge and the former Vice President delivering a searing indictment of President Trump's moral leadership. Joe Biden accused Mr. Trump of, quote, "fueling a literal carnage in America” with his incendiary rhetoric,” gushed anchor Norah O’Donnell.
After reporting that Biden was “in Iowa today accused President Trump of inspiring mass shootings in Texas and Pennsylvania”, political correspondent Ed O’Keefe played an uninterrupted soundbite of Biden’s anti-Trump rant that lasted 46 seconds.
