RUSH: On Sunday as details poured in about the London terror attacks CNN pushed out a news notification. Perfect timing. Here’s what it said: “Presidents often turn to faith in times of crisis. That seems unlikely for Trump.”
The story it linked to, “God and the Don”, was just a typical CNN hit piece on President Trump. It claimed to take a deep look into Trump’s church habits, from childhood to the present. They concluded that Trump is not as religious as CNN thinks he should be. The fact that CNN is is what shocks me.
After claiming Trump does not have a hometown church — CNN doesn’t either — CNN says the congregants of his childhood church in Queens, New York might not welcome him back today because of his political views and because the congregation is now mostly minority. The article goes downhill from there.
Now, this is the takeaway. When questions came up about Obama’s faith, the Drive-By Media did two things: ignore or defend. When stories emerged about the openly racist, anti-American teachings at Obama’s church, led by the radical preacher Jeremiah Wright, they buried the story.
Then after Obama “misspoke” during an interview with George Stephanopoulos and cited his “Muslim faith” they circled the wagons. They accused anybody who dared question Obama’s faith of bigotry, racism, and troglodyte ignorance.
But now smearing Trump over his religion, why, that’s in order. How times change. And it still shocks me that anyone at CNN even knows what religion is.
