I’ve never been a big fan of Donald Trump. Yet, even as a critic of The Donald, I must admit he hasn’t been getting a fair shake from the national media, as the following story demonstrates.

It seems Donald Trump invited the Pope aboard his private yacht.

As the Pope boarded the boat, a gust of wind blew the pontiff’s hat into the sea.

As a large crowd of television and newspaper reporters watched helplessly, Trump calmly jumped off his boat and walked confidently across the water to retrieve the Pope’s hat.

The next day’s headlines in newspapers and on television proclaimed:


If you’re like me, you can’t help but chuckle at this joke which has been circulating in recent weeks, but sadly there is a good bit of truth to it.

No matter what the President says, the liberal media and his critics find something wrong with the decision. This is not only unfair, it seems vindictive.

I’m particularly fed up with CNN’s morning show hosted by Chris Cuomo. This network, once one of my favorite sources of news, still hasn’t come to grips that Trump won the election despite its best efforts to undermine his candidacy. Now, almost every news segment on CNN tries to find ways to persecute the new President.

There are other liberal news organizations on a similar mission.

Bombastic by nature, Trump frequently harms himself himself with his own rhetoric. Yet, I can’t help but believe the man deserves a chance to prove himself without being pummeled at every turn.
