Time and again we see a gross double standard in mainstream media.
Even though they tried so hard to get Hillary Clinton elected in November, by refusing to cover her scandals, by attacking Donald Trump, by even releasing bogus polls, they lost big time. Yet now the refuse to return to honest journalism, rededicating themselves to slandering and undermining our Commander in Chief.
It’s gotten so bad that we have to refer to most outlets as “fake news,” as most of their stories are horribly distorted and dishonest. They are quick to celebrate people who fit their liberal mold, but someone who is actually working for the American people–like our new president–is insulted and torn down.
While most of us would do well to turn off the cable news, once and a while there is someone on that provides intelligent commentary.
Once and a while we see people who are willing to put their own necks on the line to say something good about President Trump. It’s rare (and shocking), but it doesn’t really happen.
Such is the case when Jeffrey Lord compared Trump to Martin Luther King.
From The Hill:
CNN political commentator and President Trump supporter Jeffrey Lord on Thursday called the president the “Martin Luther King of healthcare,” arguing that Trump has worked to rally support around healthcare reform like King rallied support around the Civil Rights Act.
“Think of President Trump as the Martin Luther King of healthcare,” Lord said during an appearance on CNN.
“When I was a kid, President Kennedy did not want to introduce the civil rights bill because he said it wasn’t popular, he didn’t have the votes for it, et cetera,” he added. “Dr. King kept putting people in the streets in harm’s way to put the pressure on so that the bill would be introduced. That’s what finally worked.”
Of course resident hater and race baiter Symone Sanders was quick to reject this reasonable comparison. How dare you say something like that to a black person! Didn’t Lord know that King is an icon among black Americans!? Forget the fact that modern civil rights leaders have nothing in common with him! They still pretend to care and respect MLK!
Sanders, as you would expect, quickly used tired old slander to insult the leader of the Free World, refuse to even understand or process the legitimate comparison. Civil Rights was an unpopular issue, politically, during that time. While many Americans wanted to see reform, the establishment in Washington was afraid to making change–as they always are. MLK brought the issue to light by uniting people across the country.
So it is with President Trump. His plans to make American great again requires a measure of change that Washington insiders don’t like. They like the comfortable situation they’re in; one that benefits themselves and not Americans. Real change to fix health care, immigration, and national security would be too much.
Yet Trump is going to get it done. He has the support of the American people–much like King did years ago.
CNN’s Sanders might not like it, but even a few in that den of depravity can see the truth.
Hey, even a broken clock is right twice a day.
