We are not making this up.
The telegenic Dana Bash of CNN, who is usually, along with her news network, not a fan of Donald Trump, had this to say about him on Tuesday, “If you look at the big picture, this was remarkable by the president of the United States. This is a nonpartisan, this is an important thing to note and to applaud, from an American standpoint, from a human standpoint. He is being the kind of leader that people need, at least in tone, today and yesterday, in tone, that people need and want and yearn for in times of crisis and uncertainty.”
Yes, you read that right.
We feel for her, as her newfound bout of insight is probably going to get her a lot of hate mail from the usual viewers of CNN. She may even get a talking to by management. But by being honest and gutsy enough to say what she thought, Bash not only enhances her own credibility but gives people hope that all is not lost in this time of crisis.
Objective reporting for the educated American.
It also brings up another question: How long can the major media and Hollywood continue to bash Trump with any gusto when he is obviously doing such a good job?
Like Dana Bash, will there be others who have the courage to say, even with a qualification, that they agree with his actions on the virus? It’s known that there are a lot of covert conservatives in major media and Hollywood. Will some stand up and be counted? Will honest liberals grant the president credit on this one matter?
Some will, some won’t. But one thing we won’t see is hardened leftists like AOC say one good thing about the president, ever, for anything. That gives us an idea of their profound lack of integrity and maturity. Even when the nation needs them to act, for once, like decent adults.
