Mainstream Media’s Double Standard on Biden Golfing vs. Trump’s Golfing

The mainstream media loves to report on Presidents’ golf outings

Biden Golf

The mainstream media loves to report on Presidents’ golf outings. But how it’s covered varies drastically from President to President; shocking. One may not even know President Biden played a leisurely round of golf on Sunday because the mainstream media had zero desire to draw attention to the fact that the President was relaxing while the country and world falls apart around him.

What media did come from the President’s Sunday was a hilariously funny, and kind of sad, video of Biden unable to hit the ball over what appears to be a short stack of wood lined up and his ball bounces off and travels backward. But we digress; although definitely check out the video.

Daily Wire hits the nail on the head with the article titled, “When Trump Was President, Golfing During a Crisis Was Criminal. With Joe Biden, It’s A Fun Day Out.” The Daily Caller reports:

In isolation, the fact that Biden chose to waste a few hours playing golf in reverse is hardly a scandal. However, let’s note that the media’s coverage of Biden’s golf activity is muted at best, and even non-existent for some outlets, despite Biden’s leisure clashing with the ongoing crises under his watch.

Now, let’s remind ourselves how the legacy media covered Trump and his decision to play golf during similar — and arguably less significant — crises:

ABC – “Trump golfs in Florida as COVID relief hangs in the balance”
People Magazine – “Trump Golfs with Kid Rock in Florida Amid Impending Release of Mueller Report”
The New York Times – “Was Trump Golfing? White House Shrouds Time at His Clubs in Mystery”
Newsweek – “Trump Golfs, Tweets on Thanksgiving Eve, While Obama Fed Homeless Veterans”
ABC – “While Washington honors McCain, Trump golfs – and tweets”
And this, we should note, doesn’t even include CNN’s absolute obsession with Trump’s golfing schedule.
January 3, 2018 – “Donald Trump’s huge golf hypocrisy”
July 14, 2018 – “The Trumps are spending the weekend at the President’s Scottish golf resort as UK protests continue”
September 3, 2019 – “Why Donald Trump golfing during Hurricane Dorian is a problem”
May 25, 2020 – “Trump golfs at his Virginia club amid the coronavirus pandemic”
May 28, 2020 – “Trump golfs during pandemic despite many attacks on Obama for golfing during tragedies and disasters”
December 25, 2020 – “Trump feels no pressure to be President while Americans suffer at Christmas”

    President Trump.. Benefited the American People.. Worked without a salary.. Lied about every day all day and night. He played golf to relieve the stress brought by the Democrats and Media. Did not know Biden knew how to golf.

Report: Texas Cop Missed Chance To Shoot Gunman At Uvalde Elementary School

Published

Police

A Uvalde police officer armed with a rifle requested to shoot the gunman who committed the mass shooting outside Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, before the gunman entered the elementary school, a report revealed on Wednesday.

Some of the 21 victims killed in the shooting at Robb Elementary School, including 19 children, likely “could have been saved,” according to the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT).

The 26-page report reveals that “Prior to the suspect’s entry into the building at 11:33:00, according to statements, a Uvalde Police Officer on scene at the crash site observed the suspect carrying a rifle outside the west hall entry. The officer, armed with a rifle, asked his supervisor for permission to shoot the suspect. However, the supervisor either did not hear or responded too late. The officer turned to get confirmation from his supervisor and when he turned back to address the suspect, he had entered the west hallway unabated.”

The report additionally notes that the officer would have been justified in using deadly force to stop the gunman without the supervisor’s confirmation.

“The officer was justified in using deadly force to stop the attacker. Texas Penal Code § 9.32, DEADLY FORCE IN DEFENSE OF PERSON states, an individual is justified in using deadly force when the individual reasonably believes the deadly force is immediately necessary to prevent the commission of murder (amongst other crimes),” the report states. “In this instance, the UPD officer would have heard gunshots and/or reports of gunshots and observed an individual approaching the school building armed with a rifle. A reasonable officer would conclude in this case, based upon the totality of the circumstances, that use of deadly force was warranted.”

“Furthermore, the UPD officer was approximately 148 yards from the west hall exterior door,” it continues. “One-hundred and forty-eight yards is well within the effective range of an AR-15 platform. The officer did comment that he was concerned that if he missed his shot, the rounds could have penetrated the school and injured students. We also note that current State of Texas standards for patrol rifle qualifications do not require officers to fire their rifles from more than 100 yards away from the target. It is, therefore, possible that the officer had never fired his rifle at a target that was that far away.”

“Ultimately, the decision to use deadly force always lies with the officer who will use the force. If the officer was not confident that he could both hit his target and of his backdrop if he missed, he should not have fired,” the report notes.

Gunman In Highland Park Shooting Was ‘Dressed In Women’s Clothing’

Police

The suspected gunman who opened fire at a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, on Monday was wearing women’s clothing as a disguise, police announced Tuesday.

The attack killed six people and injured dozens more, according to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek. The suspect, 22-year-old Robert E. Crimo III, was apprehended by police later that day near Lake Forest, Illinois.

“During the attack, Crimo was dressed in women’s clothing,” said Sgt. Christopher Covelli, of the Lake County Major Crime Task Force, FOX 10 reported. “Investigators do believe he did this to conceal his facial tattoos and his identity and help him during the escape with the other people who were fleeing the chaos.”

“He brought a high-powered rifle to this parade,” Covelli said. “He accessed the roof of a business via a fire escape ladder and began opening fire on the innocent Independence Day celebration-goers.”

“After the shooting, Crimo blended in with the crowd and walked to his mother’s home in the area where he borrowed her vehicle, Covelli said. A member of the community spotted Crimo driving and called 911,” FOX 10 reported. “Crimo was pulled over and arrested during a traffic stop about five miles north of the shooting.”

Investigators have interrogated Crimo and reviewed his social media but have not been able to determine a motive for the attack, Covelli said.
