They just can’t cut a break. Since before Donald Trump was elected, the so-called “legacy” media have warned there would be hell to pay if this man became president. All the great work Barack Obama had done to restore the economy(?), they said, would be for naught. The editorial board of the Washington Post went so far as to predict that “a President Trump could destroy the world economy.”
So how those doomsday predictions aged? The nation has witnessed a dramatic growth in the number of jobs with a corresponding drop in unemployment. The May jobs report released Friday showed the addition of another 223,000 jobs, while unemployment fell to 3.8%.
But if the mainstream media can’t nail the president on substance, at least they can go after him on style, right? See for yourself. In the video that follows, commentators with MSNBC and CNN hammer Trump for having tweeted in the small hours of the morning yesterday that he was eagerly awaiting the released of the employment data.
CNN’s John King issues a dare to his fellow panelists and viewers:
Go back and [inaudible] Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama. Find a president of the United States talking about, tweeting about, communicating about the unemployment report before it came out. I dare you.
The next portion of the video, beginning at 0:32, shows one of Trump’s predecessors doing precisely that on multiple occasions.

I will let you know when King and his cronies admit to being wrong.
