CNN’s Chris Cillizza tripped all over himself praising Joe Biden for his clumsy cluster with his own dog that fractured his foot. Leave it to the leftist news outlet to turn a fall into a triumph. According to Cillizza, Biden’s public tumble is the epitome of transparency.
When the outlet reported on the incident, they spun the story with a glowing headline for Biden. It was as if it were written by a low-budget PR firm doing damage control.
The headline read: “Why Joe Biden’s broken foot reveals how different his White House will be from Donald Trump’s”
Remember when President Trump contracted COVID-19 and the mainstream media questioned everything about his health and competence? In contrast, Biden, unstable on his feet, gets overpowered by his pup and injured himself to the extent of needing a medical specialist to fix it and it’s somehow a heroic act.
After noting that former Vice President Joe Biden had slipped and injured his foot while playing with his dog Major, Cillizza lauds the fact that “We were quickly told — via the traveling press pool — that Biden was going to see his orthopedist out of an abundance of caution.”
Cillizza continued, “Within two hours, there was a statement from Dr. Kevin O’Connor noting that Biden’s foot had been X‑rayed and it appeared as though he had a sprain. A CT scan was going to be conducted just to confirm the diagnosis, however.”
“Transparency in matters of health and, well, everything else, is fundamental to a functioning democracy,” Cillizza asserted. “And we have had the opposite of that for these last four years,” Cillizza concluded.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is what we call putting “lipstick on a pig.”
