A NY Daily News writer criticized the media for hyping the fake news story about a flubbed low-five attempt between President Donald Trump and the first lady Melania Trump at Ben Gurion airport in Israel on Monday.
Many biased observers concluded that Mrs. Trump rebuked the President because she no longer wants to be married to him.
But NY Daily News writer S.E. Cupp points out that, even CNN -- which is extremely biased -- acknowledged that the Trumps held hands minutes later on the tarmac.
Apologizing for giving the non-story more ink, Cupp wrote that, "The oxygen and print space" that media outlets have given Melania's hand flick "is astounding."
via NY Daily News -- Maybe the President and his wife had just had an argument. Maybe she thought protocol required no hand-holding. Maybe it was hot and his hand was sweaty. Who knows, but more importantly, who cares?
One can perhaps forgive entertainment outlets like People, but when serious media outlets ask you to believe their reporting that, say, Trump may have obstructed justice, or that Russia interfered with our elections, and then they give inordinate attention to a ridiculous and inconsequential moment meant solely to embarrass the President and his family, they shouldn't be surprised when an already distrusting public says no.
