After President Trump visited the riot-torn city of Kenosha, Wisconsin on Tuesday, the liberal media were outraged because state and local leaders (who they failed to label as Democrats) had asked him not to come. And before Trump’s arrival, the networks treated him like a hurricane, saying the residents were “bracing” for landfall. That’s in stark contrast to how they praised the Thursday visit from their presidential nominee, Joe Biden, despite the fact the Democratic governor asked him not to come also.
The opposition to Trump’s visit was almost consistently the first thing the evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC brought up in their Tuesday reports.
“Despite local officials telling him to postpone his trip, President Trump in Kenosha, Wisconsin, today, touring a building destroyed in protests after the police shooting of Jacob Blake. Met by supporters and protesters, he pushed his law and order message,” whined correspondent Alex Perez on ABC’s World News Tonight.
On CBS Evening News, White House correspondent Paula Reid barely finished exchanging pleasantries with anchor Norah O’Donnell before whining about the visit. “Good evening, Norah. President Trump visited here today, over objections from local leaders, in an effort to draw attention to destruction from recent protests,” she announced, completely missing the point that protests don’t destroy stuff; riots do.
