President Trump hating media’s dumbest trick yet?

When it comes to President Donald Trump, the people over at “The Hill” won’t pass up a chance to make the President look bad. You could call it Fake News or False News but it is actually biased reporting. They spun his staff meetings at a golf course to all be golf outings. I guess they got used to Obama’s schedule? See how they revised it when called out on it.

As Written By Thomas Lifson for American Thinker:

Efforts to propagandize against President Trump are reaching absurd levels. The latest ridiculous meme attempts to portray the president as somehow idling away time from work – just as President Obama was criticized for doing – by sneaking away from the White House to the golf course.

No, I am not kidding.  The Hill is actually trying to imply this, without actually saying it.  As anyone faintly familiar with the Trump presidency so far knows, the man never stops working.  He seems to almost completely blend his personal life into his work. Aside from family moments together, he has no leisure that I can see. Every round of golf, every party, everything he does is work-related. And he sleeps maybe 4 hours a night (just like William Jefferson Clinton – a man able to separate personal pleasure from work goals, if not workplace).  President Obama displayed no such devotion to work to the exclusion of leisure, and conservatives raked him over the coals. In fact, as Ed Lasky documented a number of times, there is a fair amount of evidence that Obama was lazy, spent a lot of time having fun, and let Valerie Jarrett and others carry out the plans.

But here is what The Hill headlined:

“Trump makes ninth golf course visit in seven weeks in office”

President Trump paid a visit to one of his golf courses again Saturday, marking apparently his ninth visit to a golf course in the seven weeks since he took office.

 The headline and lede are the most important things about an item. Search engines pick them up. These words are what people see at a glance on their Bing or Google searches.  Many more people will see the title and tease than see the entire article.

So the implied message – in the context of the Obama golfing meme – is: See, Obama was not…….
