On “CBS This Morning” on Monday, the hosts criticized President Trump for attacking former President Barack Obama.
In their eyes, Obama is immune to criticism and Trump is classless for criticizing a former president. Of course, they seem to forget that Obama often criticized former President George W. Bush.
Obama, who failed miserably in both Afghanistan and Iraq, also struggled to reboot the economy in 2008.
Host Anthony Mason started the attack on Trump, saying that Obama “broke an uneasy truce” between the two, with Chip Reid saying that Trump had “taken the gloves off.”
The liberal media seems to have forgotten the times during the 2016 election when Obama went out of his way to mock, then presidential candidate, Trump.
Not surprisingly, CBS seems to have forgotten the time in mid-October when Obama delivered an anti-Trump speech.
And to this day, Obama has stayed in Washington, D.C., something that is very unusual for a former president to do.
Obama and Trump are not friends and nothing has suggested that they are, but it is hypocritical of the media to claim that Obama is immune to all criticism when he has started certain fights in the past.
