Stop giving a twice-impeached, failure of a former President media coverage. MSM can't contain

themselves, can they? Too much revenue. It is disgusting that this sociopath, pathological liar, tax cheat and mob boss has not been run into exile. MSM and mis/dis-information (thanks Facebook and the dark web) are largely why we're here. And of course Vlad's buddies.

Trump was given a pass on everything because he's "new at this". When he so much as did the presidential equivalent of successfully pooping in the big boy toilet or tying his own shoelaces - i.e. the bare minimum of competency - the media fawned over him and showered him with praise. " He's so presidential!", they'd say.

As for Biden the bar has been raised to an impossibly high level, and his bringing back Bs instead of A+s has resulted in stern lectures and mournful lamentations that his presidency is already an abysmal failure about eight months in.

"He is going to "pivot." Anyone could see who he was and would be, by looking at his past, his "associates" and his tax returns. Oh, wait, we still haven't seen those. And you never will either.

It's a good idea in an OP to at least name the channel or newspaper you're complaining about.
