White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany shredded media hypocrites who are criticizing President Trump for starting up his campaign rallies, days after they praised protesters for taking to the streets and ignoring social distancing protocols.
In an appearance with Fox News personality, Sean Hannity, McEnany said the media’s “Trump Derangement Syndrome” has been on full display when comparing coverage of the two events.
She particularly noted NBC News’ coverage, which saw side-by-side tweets showing a positive headline involving a march for “black trans lives,” and one covering Trump rallies they quoted as “extraordinarily dangerous.”

A visual of the contrasting coverage as seen above makes it very clear, but McEnany expanded on the obvious bias permeating the mainstream media in America.
“This is how much they have Trump Derangement Syndrome,” fumed the Press Secretary. “They see a million people registering for [tickets to] a rally, so they are so contradictory, praising the crowd of protesters [while] criticizing the million people who signed up for a Trump rally.”
Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale announced on Monday that there have been more than 1 million ticket requests for the President’s first rally since the start of the coronavirus lockdowns.
The rally is slated to be held in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Saturday.

Aside from the blatant hypocrisy from NBC News, there is the old standby, intellectually-challenged individuals at CNN who have shown extraordinary bias in their coverage of protesters versus everyday Americans.
Anchor Don Lemon praised rioters as akin to Boston Tea Party revolutionaries when just a week earlier he was blasting Americans as potentially risking people’s lives.
“Massive crowd of people crammed together, as if it were just an ordinary holiday weekend despite the risks of a virus that has killed more than 98,000 people,” he whined.
Lemon’s colleague, Chris Cuomo, said people trying to get their jobs back and go to work to support their families were “out protesting like fools.”
But when the riots started taking place, he couldn’t help but cheer them on.
“America’s major cities are filled with people demanding this country be more fair, more just,” a gleeful Cuomo reported. “And please, show me where it says that protests are supposed to be polite and peaceful.”
Being dumber than a stump, Cuomo famously had his question answered by some random dude chomping on uncooked Ramen and saw his entire argument wiped out in about 10 seconds.

McEnany points out that the media’s corrupt coverage was no different when the administration was seeking to allow people to attend church services.
“We saw this with the churches, when the president … opened the churches, socially distanced, they criticized that but in the same breath laud the protests a week later,” she stated.
“It is so wrong, the people see directly through this, and it is all because President Trump is succeeding.”
The media, in its current state, is truly the enemy of the people.
