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.

Employees Completely Helpless as Shoplifters Walk Out With Thousands Worth of Goods at Oregon Lowes

Published

shoplifter

Social media Twitter account @libsoftiktok which states in the bio it posts “all things insane & hypocritical” posted a one-minute video showing “2 people walk out of an Oregon Lowe’s with carts of stolen merchandise. Employees look on and are unable to do anything.”

As the video plays, words highlighted red appear that read, “INCREDIBLE STATE OF OREGON, USA” and “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.” The video takes place at a Lowes store and epitomizes the sad times we are in.

Within the first eight seconds of the video, the two robbers, with filled carts, simply stroll out of the store as if they were paying customers. The Lowes employee asks the men “can you show me the receipts?” The young man appears to flash something while saying “right here.”

The female employee then says “no, I don’t think so” knowing the men did not pay for the items. The two thieves continue to walk the carts out of the store and a second, elderly Lowes employee attempts to stop the men, shouting “hey” as he follows them.

The female employee stops the elderly male employee from pursuing the robbers saying, “it’s not worth it.” As the robbers have successfully exited the store, into the parking lot, the male recording the video then asks the employees, “doesn’t it suck you guys can’t do anything? I mean I think it’s just amazing.”

The video then shows the men in the parking lot throwing the stolen items into a red Subaru where it appears others were waiting to help. A voice can be heard explaining that the guys are packing the car with stolen goods, and another man explains it happens “every day.”

“Dude that’s thousands of dollars – I’m an electrician, bro” the videographer explains of the sheer amount of goods being stolen. The thieves close the back door and the videographer zooms in to the back of the car to show the “license tag” before the car speeds away. The red highlighted words “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY” remained on the video the whole time.
