    The President recommends something idiotic; someone does the idiotic thing; and you want to absolve the President, because it's possible that the person did the idiotic thing on their own, independent of the President's endorsement of it, even though the surviving person closest to the situation directly implicates the President. That's splitting the hair pretty thin.

    I’m confused.

    Either The Blaze is a legitimate organization to reference therefore they are part of “the media” or they are not and shouldn’t be considered a trusted source.

    You can’t have it both ways.

    Uh, yeah? Which part are you questioning? That he was President, that he recommended it, or that it was idiotic?

    They are part of the media, but definitely not part of the mainstream media. I don't like Glen Beck nor do I frequent the Blaze, but only conservative outlets are reporting on this. The mainstream media provided a much different version of the story. Even Joe Rogan thought it was crap the media jumped on Trump for this.

    Out of context, I would assume that this is a joke. Trump's schtick is that he knows more than everyone about everything and that, if one follows him, there is no need to listen to any so-called "expert." When has Trump ever said, "Defer to someone else's judgment over mine"?

    • Overall, we rate Salon Left Biased based on story selection that strongly favors the left and endorsements of political positions that are affiliated with the Democratic Party. We also rate them High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing of information and adherence to the consensus of science.

    • Overall, we rate The Blaze strongly Right Biased based on story selection that almost always favors the right and Mixed for factual reporting due to a few failed a check and loaded emotional headlines.

    https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/washington-free-beacon/

    • Overall, we rate the Washington Free Beacon Right Biased based on story selection that favors the right and Mixed for factual reporting due to misleading and false claims.

    Feel free to judge for yourself.

    Stop attempting to mitigate it with these sideways stories.

    The simple fact that Trump touted a bad study from (likely) hearsay on national TV just to assuage his base that he actually has clothes on is puppy evil. I mean, people are saying that the French doctor behind this is a charlatan. Maybe that's why Trump touts him.

    ...

    Go hear it from the scientists themselves:

    And in case you missed Trump's take about it:

    Haha. Many people in the political realm use Joe Rogan as a barometer of what the average non-political man thinks about issues. He represents a key demographic and has a massive audience.

    He has also expressed concerns about Biden's cognitive abilities. It would be silly to dismiss everything that comes from his show just because he's not a political mind. It wasn't the political elite who elected Trump.

    You’re suggesting she purposefully killed her husband in order to undermine president trump. Based on a woman wanting divorce at some point, leaning dem, and believing in science. Congrats, you’ve just lost any shred of credibility.
