In 2012, then president, Barrack Obama called Vladimir Putin to congratulate him on his
shocking rigged election win.Guess what happened? There was literally one, single, article published about it in Foreign Policy magazine (a publication that is largely only read by foreign policy academics and reporters).
Now, in all fairness, there was a scandal that also hit shortly after Obama congratulated Putin that the media covered, but not in the way you might guess…. they attacked Republicans.
Obama, who forgot to turn his microphone off, placed his hand on President Medvedev’s arm and in a clear statement of Russian-catering said: “This is my last election, after my election I have more flexibility.”
Medvedev then declared, in what certainly paints then-President Obama as Putins-puppet-to-be, “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”
When Russian conspiracy site CNN ran the story ran the story they ignored Obama’s ineffectualness and obvious desire to win an election, over American interests, and choose to focus on Republicans once again. “Republicans seized on Obama’s request as an opportunity to frame the president as a politician primarily focused on re-election.”
Can you imagine for a second if President Trump was caught on a hot mic promising leniency with Russia? The media would go haywire!
But, because the MSM was in Obama’s pocket and they show an open distain for President Trump the tables have turned. Nearly the entirety of the mainstream media, and the predictably moronic John McCain, has lashed out at President Trump for a relatively standard diplomatic move. Was Trump supposed to call Putin and say, “F*** you and your rigged elections” – would that have made the MSM happy?
You don’t need to look any further than these side-by-side news searches to spot how disgusting and biased the “American” MSM is against the Trump Administration:
