Christmas came early for the liberal Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) on Thursday when former President George W. Bush spoke out against the Donald Trump administration. In a disgusting display of sudden respect for a long time political foe, the network’s championed Bush’s hammering of the current president. And the icing on their anti-Trump cake was former President Obama doing the exact same thing too.
“Today, the 43rd President made no mention of the 45th, but his focus was clear,” touted White House Correspondent Margaret Brennan during CBS Evening News. “He suggested that an America first mindset is distorting our democracy.” She highlighted Bush’s call for “journalists to uphold their integrity for the sake of the republic.”
With an air of righteousness, Brennan reported how Obama “appearing at a Democratic rally in New Jersey, he urged young voters to fight back.” “President Bush said he believes the American spirit will ultimately prevail,” she added before quipping about how the former presidents went against political norms, but ‘oh, well.’ “It is a standard rule for presidents not to criticize their successors. But, perhaps, this is another example where the standard rules no longer apply.”
On ABC’s World News Tonight, Chief White House Correspondent Jon Karl began his report by fawning over Bush’s comments. “George W. Bush has avoided politics since leaving office, but today, the former president seemed to throw down the gauntlet, warning of the rise of, quote, “bullying and prejudice” in America,” he hyped.
“The former President never mentioned the current president, but much of the speech seemed directly aimed at the words and policies of Donald Trump,” Karl praised. “And while Trump has been criticized for being slow to condemn racists, Bush drew a bright line.” ABC too flaunted Obama’s criticism of Trump.
Whereas ABC and CBS started by touting Bush’s comment’s, NBC still couldn’t put him before Obama. “Barack Obama, back on the campaign trail for the first time since leaving office,” announced Anchor Lester Holt during the lead into the segment. “And George W. Bush who has largely stayed on the sidelines in a rare appearance delivering a powerful message.”
“Tonight a pair of past presidents raising concerns about the direction of the country they once led,” NBC White House Correspondent Kristen Welker began her report. But she quickly turned to giving Bush most the credit for the criticism. “But the former Republican President spoke with a sharper edge today … Delivering clear condemnation of the current president without mentioning him by name.”
After the liberal media previously mocked the idea of a “compassionate conservative,” Welker held up the term to promote Bush’s words. “In 2000, Bush won the White House on a promise of compassionate conservatism. Tonight taking a not so subtle swipe at the current climate.”
The liberal media treated President Bush as an enemy for 16-years (his term and Obama’s) but now that they had a new enemy in Trump, they suddenly found something worth elevating him for.
