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.

Chicago 911 Dispatcher says ‘All Hell Has Broken Loose’ Crime is ‘Nonstop’

The liberal run city of Chicago is in a downward spiral suffocated by crime. Few understand what is happening better than 911 dispatchers who have the impossible task of listening to people suffer through crimes, yet unable to help them due to liberal policies creating a violent crime epidemic and police shortage.

Keith Thornton posted a video to Facebook last week saying Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is “a disgrace.” Thornton took it upon himself to warn citizens about which Chicago police district is unavailable due to the staffing shortages.

In an interview with Fox & Friends Thornton said that “all hell has broken loose” in Chicago while local officials have failed to act. “It’s been shenanigans, and it’s just nonstop, day after day. It doesn’t matter if it’s morning time, evening time, whatever –at all hours of the day, there is a massive amount of crime taking place within the city of Chicago.”

“When I’m getting text messages from officers telling me that they’re scared and afraid for their safety because they’re working by themselves, and then the beat next to them would normally back them up, they’re not even there because the cars are down. That’s a problem. It’s a safety concern” Thornton said in an interview with Chicago’s WLS-TV.

Chicago Police Department data shows homicides, shootings, thefts and criminal sexual assaults are all up drastically compared to last year. Lightfoot has not only been a proponent of defunding the police, she also behaved viciously towards law enforcement.

After Chicago Police Officer Ella French was killed during a routine traffic stop, Lightfoot blamed “guns and the violence they bring” for her death. When Lightfoot visited French’s partner who was wounded and fighting for his life at the time at the hospital, dozens of officers at the hospital turned their back on the mayor.

It’s Raining Lawsuits on Jussie Smollett; City of Chicago and Nigerian Brothers Suing Actor

The City of Chicago has confirmed it will be suing disgraced actor Jussie Smollett. The lawsuit will seek the $130,106.15 “to cover an overtime tab racked up by dozens of officers tasked with investigating Smollett’s claims that he was the victim of an attack”, reports Daily Mail UK.

According to the legal filing, the Chicago Department came to the conclusion to pursue the lawsuit after over two dozen cops spent weeks investigating the fake attack and logged 1,836 hours of overtime as a result.

Daily Mail also noted the Osundairo brothers who were hired by Smollett to stage his attack, plan to continue with their own lawsuit against Smollett’s legal team. According to the Daily Mail, “they’re seeking undisclosed damages after claiming their careers and reputations were damaged in the high-profile hoax.”

After the initial set of charges were dropped against the brothers, Abel and Ola Osundairo, they sued Smollett’s attorneys in April 2019, claiming their careers and reputations were damaged. “They claimed in the defamation lawsuit against lawyers Mark Geragos and Tina Glandian that they were maliciously portrayed as liars in the public” reports Daily Mail.

The lawsuit specifically references how Smollett’s attorneys suggested the brothers ‘might have been wearing white face’ when they attacked him and inferred that Abel had a sexual relationship with Smollett. Abel’s home country of Nigeria prohibits homosexuality. ‘Same-sex sexual activity is illegal in Nigeria, which can result in 14 years of imprisonment…if the accused is married the punishment is death by stoning.’

Therefore, Ms. Glandian’s statements about the brother being a homosexual ‘endangers him and the lives of his Nigerian family’ the lawsuit stated. The brothers’ lawsuit was stayed by a federal judge until the criminal proceedings for Smollett are completed. The brothers’ legal team is expected to file an update to the court by February 2.

Smollett, 39, was just convicted on five counts of disorderly conduct for faking his own attack and now faces jail time. “His sentencing date has not yet been set but he faces a maximum of 20 years in prison.”
