With the election two months in the past and the liberal media feeling increasingly confident that they’re done with President Donald Trump, it seems that a few brave reporter-types are ready to finally be honest with the American people. For instance, there’s CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, one of a countless number of mainstream media leftists who assured us for years that there was something fishy going on between Trump and Vladimir Putin. They probably stole the 2016 election together. They’ve probably had a corrupt relationship going back years. They’re probably going to pull another heist in 2020.
What’s the proof? Well, just look at how Trump treats Russia! Only this traitor would subjugate the United States for the purposes of appeasing his master in Moscow. Shameful! Treasonous! Orange Man Bad!!
Well just look how the turn tides.
Asked by a panelist how he predicted incoming President Joe Biden would deal with Russia, Zakaria said this:
“I think in general, there isn’t going to be as much difference as people imagine. The Biden folks are pretty tough on Russia, Iran, North Korea. You know, the dirty little secret about the Trump administration was that while Donald Trump had clearly had a kind of soft spot for Putin, the Trump Administration was pretty tough on the Russians. They armed Ukraine, they armed the Poles. They extended NATO operations and exercises in ways that even the Obama Administration had not done. They maintained the sanctions. So I don’t think it will be that different.”
Wow. We particularly enjoy how Zakaria phrased this as a “dirty little secret.” Gee, how did it come to be such a secret, dirty or otherwise? Perhaps it’s because you and the people who run your network did everything possible to convince the public that it wasn’t true – that Trump was selling our country one policy at a time to the Russians and that we could never be secure so long as the president and Putin were in cahoots.
This is even worse than the New York Times, which spent months denying the existence of a crisis on the border in late 2018 only to turn around and admit there was a crisis the moment the midterm elections were over.
When and if Trump finally leaves office, we can only imagine the number of things the media will finally give him credit for. We especially can’t wait for 2024, when they start trashing the Republican nominee using phrases like, “Even TRUMP wouldn’t have done THAT.”
Assuming, of course, that anyone’s still watching them by that time…
