Earlier in the week the media mocked President Donald Trump over what they saw as a pointless lie (which should’ve led them to question whether or not it was a lie at all). The comment in question was when Trump said of German Chancellor Angela Merkel; “I have great respect for Angela and great respect for the country. My father was German and born in a very wonderful place in Germany, so I have a great feeling for Germany.”
The explanation for the comment is pretty simple; Trump misspoke. We all know that Fred Trump was born in New York, and that his father was born in Germany, so why does the media automatically assume there is some sinister desire to deceive?
You can see the media’s bias in how selective the comments they choose to react to are. Trump misspeaking gets him charged with lying, while Nancy Pelosi can make up quotes from the Bible and virtually no one in the mainstream media will accuse her of dishonesty – or even notice.
As reported by Bongino.com:
During a speech last week at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi quoted her favorite Bible verse.
Only, there’s one problem: the quote is not actually in the Good Book.
In her opening statement, Pelosi said, “To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.”
Amusingly, Pelosi says she can’t locate the specific verse, but seems to have convinced herself that it’s in the bible.
She admitted, though, that she was unable to find the verse in the Bible. “I quote it all the time. And I keep reading and reading the Bible. I know it’s there someplace. It’s supposed to be in Isaiah,” she said.
Think we’ll ever see her quoting the bible when it comes to issues like abortion?
