Another sickening event happened recently on the Mainstream Media.
A correspondent for ABC News was recorded joking about President Trump’s funeral.
Can you even imagine the outrage that would have been plastered 24/7 on every news channel out there if this was said by someone on Fox News about Obama?
But it wasn’t.
And so I’m guessing this might be the first time you’ve even heard of it.
Am I right? If so, please share this article.
Here it is right here:
Here’s the transcript of the exchange between Moran, two unidentified reporters and Devin Dwyer:
DWYER: And perhaps a recognition in terms of his involvement in the proceedings, by President Trump, that he someday will be getting a similar treatment, when he passes, then as a former President of the United States–
UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER#1: Probably a different tone.
UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER #2: Perhaps!
MORAN: First, he’s going to choreograph it. So, there may be more trumpets and fanfare. …
DWYER: Maybe he’s taking it cues. Yes he will do it bigger, one would imagine.
MORAN: It will be the best presidential funeral ever. No one will ever have seen anything like that funeral.
The USA Today confirmed the story:
Two ABC News panelists joked about President Donald Trump planning his own funeral during coverage of Former President George H.W. Bush's funeral on Wednesday.
"It will be the best presidential funeral ever. No one will ever have seen anything like that funeral," joked ABC News correspondent Terry Moran, according to a video of the exchange published by entertainment and media news outlet The Wrap.
Moran made the comment alongside ABC News' Devin Dwyer after calling Trump's presidency a "repudiation" of what Bush and his son, Former President George W. Bush, "stood for," but one that the voters wanted.
"And perhaps a recognition, in terms of his involvement in the proceedings by President Trump, that he some day will be getting a similar treatment when he passes, as a former president of the United States," Dwyer responded.
"Probably a different tone in that funeral," Moran quickly jumped in. "First he’s going to choreograph it. So, there might be more trumpets and fanfare."
Dwyer replied: "Yes, he would do it bigger, one would imagine."
The panelists' exchange came as an ABC News livestream showed Bush's funeral procession on the tarmac of Joint Base Andrews.
Dan Gainor, vice president on the conservative Media Research Center, condemned the the journalists' remarks as "despicable garbage" in comments made to Fox News.
"I would say ABC News should apologize, but it wouldn’t be sincere if it did. This is about the billionth example of unprofessional journalism in their attacks on Trump. It’s only more outrageous because of the solemn occasion,” Gainor told the network.
Gainor's group's "sole mission is to expose and neutralize the propaganda arm of the Left: the national news media," according to its website.
ABC News declined to comment.
As did Fortune:
ABC faced criticism for its correspondents joking about how President Donald Trump would stage his own funeral while they spoke during digital livestream coverage of George H.W. Bush’s funeral procession from the Washington National Cathedral to Joint Base Andrews. The late president will be buried in Texas.
While many pundits and network commentators spoke of sharp contrasts in the tone, conviviality, and respect for the media between the 41st and 45th presidents, some conservative figures took issue with ABC’s chief foreign correspondent Terry Moran imagining Trump calling his own service “the best presidential funeral ever.”
ABC’s Devin Dwyer also suggested that Trump’s funeral would be “bigger,” and Moran suggested Trump would have “more trumpets and fanfare” and a different tone. Presidents are, in fact, asked to plan memorial services after taking office.
Dan Gainor of the conservative Media Research Center told Fox News that the comments were “despicable garbage,” and “only more outrageous because of the solemn occasion.” A political comedian, Tim Young, who appeals to Republican audiences, also spoke to Fox News, saying, “It’s in bad taste to joke about any of our current leader’s future passing,” and calling it a double standard.
