If you’re on the conservative side of the political landscape, you’ll be used to seeing skewed reports on events. The Left is full of hero protestors, the Right has rioters; social policies are kind when suggested by Democrats and evil when promoted by the GOP; children of famous liberals are awesome, while those of famous Republicans are on the take, or reek of privilege.
Nowhere is that last point more clearly demonstrated than this New Yorker story on the disgrace that is Hunter Biden.
The American mainstream media needs to be made to resister as in-kind contributors to Democrats. This is out of control. pic.twitter.com/i2Ip24QQ2j— David Reaboi (@davereaboi) September 28, 2020
This is the New Yorker on Ivanka Trump:
When Ivanka speaks, in her breathy Tweety Bird-at-boarding-school burble, the effect is complete: she’s like an American Girl doll with a trust fund and a Gucci attaché case.Libby Gelman-Waxner, The New Yorker,
The death of a Supreme Court Justice? Predictable.
The simplest demonstration of media bias. Our heroes are their compelling villains. Our impressive foes are their saints. https://t.co/MzlxRERrbn— Tim Carney (@TPCarney) September 21, 2020
And, of course, Melania Trump, a former catwalk model, hasn’t made the cover of Vogue magazine since she became First Lady, while Michelle Obama was featured three times.
And the Timberland boots issue? I’m too old and cynical about fashion but the mostly liberal fashion correspondents thought “Kamala Harris’ Timberlands-Pearls Combo Has Our Vote,” but when Melania wore them, “…I’m sorry I just cannot with Melania’s timbs.” More here if you’re remotely interested in this nonsense.
They’re not above blatantly lying either. Here the oft-recited trope that Trump imprisons children on the border reminds us that the “cages” used were constructed under Obama.
In 2019, former Trump administration acting Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement Thomas Homan confirmed the migrant holding facilities were built during the Obama administration during a panel hosted by The Center for Immigration Studies. The center is a “pro-immigrant, low-immigration” think tank, according to its website.
“The kids are being housed in the same facilities built under the Obama administration. If you want to call them cages, call them cages. But if the left wants to call them cages, and the Democrats want to call them cages, then they have to accept the fact that they were built and funded in FY ’15, and I was there,” Homan said, according to a transcript.
Oh, and that mantra that Joe’s a nice guy? How about this? Did you hear about it? No, I didn’t think so.
