Another day, another group of protests against the “evil” President.
Since President Trump’s inauguration, it has become a regular occurrence to wake up and hear about the latest anti-Trump riot on the news, and now here we are again.
This past weekend in New Haven, Connecticut, a group of about 200 protestors blocked off a highway, delaying an ambulance carrying a “critically ill” patient. Of course, the media doesn’t like to include these details.
Police reported that “ambulance personnel were required to perform an emergency medical procedure in the ambulance instead of at the hospital.” So, liberals want everyone to have healthcare, they just don’t want you to make it to the hospital.
The leader of the protest, Norman Clement, was arrested and charged with inciting a riot, disorderly conduct, and interfering with an officer.
Has anyone asked “why”? Why are these protests still going on and is there any end in sight?
In short, the media… and no.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer made the claim that protests “get blown out of the water” by the media while other stories such as terrorist attacks do not “necessarily get the same coverage,” and it’s a hard point to argue.
To support President Trump’s claims of the media’s favoritism, the White House released a list of 78 terror attacks which they believe were incredibly underreported, including 4 attacks totaling 10 killed and 42 wounded since November.
However, this is not what you hear about on the news or social media. Instead, every morning you wake up to reports of protests, bringing more attention to their “cause”. Even when it seems to put these demonstrations in a bad light, as the old saying goes, any publicity is good publicity.
Sadly, with different media agendas, these protests won’t be going anywhere any time soon. So strap in and hope you aren’t in need of any ambulances.
