This Crude Politician Elicits Zero Media Outrage

Written by Joe Scudder

While they talk up impeaching Donald Trump for being a crude politician, they don’t even notice others doing the same thing.

The media apparently thinks being a crude politician is an impeachable offence. That seems to be the case, judging by the reaction to Donald Trump’s evaluation of Mika Brzezinski’s intelligence and his allegation about her facelift.

Remember, during the primary, how gentle Ben Carson was compared to how rude Donald Trump was?

So you would think that Leftists would (1) treat Carson differently than Trump and (2) not be crude themselves. After all, if Donald Trump retweeting a wrestling meme is so violent so that Democrats must condemn him for it, that means they must care about avoiding violent imagery and language.

But that ignores the fact that Democrats are hypocrites.

The Hill reports, “Maxine Waters: Ben Carson ‘doesn’t care about people in public housing’

“[Carson] knows nothing about the mission of HUD,” Waters said in a speech at the Essence Festival in New Orleans.

Frankly, based on Carson’s sheer intelligence, I would not be surprised if he already knows more than Waters does.

At the very end of the article as if it is an afterthought, The Hill reports,

Waters also warned Carson that she would tough on him when he testifies before the House Committee on Financial Services, on which she is the ranking member.

“[If he] thinks that I am going to give him a pass, I am going to take his ass apart,” Waters said.

Imagine the media reaction if Donald Trump said of Waters, “I am going to take her ass apart.”

They are total hypocrites.
