mentality says... "There is plenty of scum to go around on both sides." Ahh the classic false equivalency that Trump supporters often resort to. First of all, every child should be taught at a young age that just because other children may act like little shits, that doesn't mean they can. The amount of functional adult Trump supporters who use "the Democrats are bad too!" as an excuse for Trump's behavior is just astounding. It's really just a pathetic diversionary tactic used to avoid discussing the issues at hand. Second, your claim that Democrats are just as cruel is simply not true. Blaming Democrats for the very thing Trump is guilty of is a common smear tactic employed by extremist right wing propaganda. Take Trump's zero tolerance policy which separated minors from their families for example. Right wing propaganda outlets like OAN love showing pictures of children housed alone in Obama era detention facilities and cry foul at the liberal media at the lack of coverage. The reality is that Obama faced a huge surge of thousand of unaccompanied minors from south america in 2014 who were detained. So yes, thousands of children were detained, but they were NOT separated from the families in the first place. And while some families were separated during Obama's tenure, Obama's policies tried to limit this as much as possible. It is a far cry from what Trump's zero tolerance policy accomplished. The "liberal" media did not report this under Obama OR Bush simply because it was not an issue. If you believed that there was unfair media coverage for Trump on this issue, then you were lied to and manipulated. Its part of what we discussed earlier how Trump uses lies to discredit the media and further erode our democracy. The point is that right wing propaganda and Trump himself routinely uses lies and deception to paint himself as the target of a "liberal media bias" that they themselves manufactured. And his gullible supporters like yourself love believing in his victim complex. If you don't believe me, then just refer to non partisan international sources like the BBC and you'll soon discover that Trump is just as shitty from an impartial view as the "biased liberal media" portrays him. Both sides are not the same, no matter what lies Trump and Fox News et al. tries to tell you. And there are plenty of respectable media sources which are not CNN which also exposes Trump for the lying scum that he is. Briguy1960 said: It has nothing to do with what I personally like. This is the issue here. You despise Trump and so does the liberal dominated media so they gloss over shit the Left do and come down harder on Trump etc. There is no excuse for the garbage reporting going on. None. I suppose you think Kavanaugh was treated fairly too. The Fusion thing is all just a pack of lies concocted by Alex Jones etc too right? Blatant showboating about how cruel Trump is when it has been proven time and time again the Democrats held the same views and would never let caravans in... Funny how things are viewed when you are a religious fanatic as the left is becoming in their rage against all things Trump and GOP. Keep looking at things through rose colored glasses my friend. There is plenty of scum to go around on both sides.
