Trump declares emergency to build border wall
WASHINGTON (February 15, 2019) — President Donald Trump announced Friday that he will declare a national emergency to fulfill his pledge to construct a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The mainstream media, for the most part, has been presenting glowing tributes to President George H.W. Bush since his passing last week – but it wasn't always that way.
Bush, America's 41st president, took office in January 1989 after serving for eight years as Ronald Reagan's vice president. He and Reagan had first campaigned for office a little more than ten years after Watergate – but the media still had the knives out for Republicans during the 1988 campaign.
That treatment by the media then was fair game and quite civil by today's standards, but Kyle Drennen of Media Research Center says it's almost comical how they fawn over the late president at his death.
"The media went after George H.W. Bush during his presidency in a lot of very vicious kinds of ways," he recalls. "So now it's years later and suddenly it's Oh, he was so wonderful and he was such a great man."
But more than that, Drennen says liberals are actually playing politics with the solemn occasion. "The immediate instinct was, Well, let's take the passing of this great man and let's try and use it to tear down the current president who we don't agree with politically."
One need look no further than ABC's The View, where co-host Joy Behar couldn't help herself, much to the dismay of Megan McCain, who just recently lost her father, Republican Senator John McCain. The two engaged in a fiery exchange when Behar used a discussion about "Bush 41" to launch into an attack on President Donald Trump's environmental policy.
Discussing that exchange, MRC's Curtis Houck told Fox News:
"Joy Behar's insistence that the Bush tribute center around Trump was a microcosm of the media's permanent obsession with the current president, showing an embarrassing inability to cover stories or pay tribute to people like George H.W. Bush or John McCain without their cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome breaking through."
