President Trump drew a packed house of more than 8,000 to his rally Thursday in Colorado Springs.
It must have been a spectacularly successful event, judging by the snarky and dismissive tone from mainstream media reporters, who focused on negative angles outside of the actual event they were covering to tarnish the president and other Colorado Republicans in attendance.
Skimming through their cynicism and scorn — the Denver Post is miffed Trump mocked their favorite political party and has nicknames for Democrats — we did manage to find some great quotes worth repeating.
Like this from U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner:
“Vote Democrat if you want Bernie Sanders, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, AOC and the rest of the far left implementing their socialist agenda,” Gardner said over the loud crowd.
“We have to go on the offensive,” he added. “It’s our job to explain why their radical policies will hurt Colorado, why they will hurt this country. Because while they want to bribe you with ‘free,’ I will stand with you for freedom. Together we must stand.”
The Post neglected to mention any of those explanations offered by Trump or other Colorado Republicans in attendance — U.S. Reps. Scott Tipton, Doug Lamborn, and Ken Buck, as well as Interior Secretary Dave Bernhardt.
Instead, the Post reporter tracked down Democrat U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette for an interview to discuss land-use policies.
Does the media reach out to Republican officeholders to comment on relevant or random policies when Democrats running for president hold rallies in Colorado?
No, they do not.
That bias is reserved for Trump.
