Rick Santorum Says Media Politicizing McCain’s Death. Here’s How CNN Panel Responded.

The media is always on the prowl for some new way to take a figurative sledgehammer to President Trump and bash him three ways from Sunday, so it should be no surprise that since the passing of Sen. John McCain over the weekend, news outlets have been doing their best to find some way to use this tragedy as a means to attack the president.

Former presidential candidate Rick Santorum made an appearance on Chris Cuomo’s show on CNN where he called the media out for this kind of shenanigans. You can pretty much guess how the panel responded. It wasn’t pretty.

“I just don’t think it does anything to the memory of John McCain to use him as a cudgel to beat up the president,” Santorum told Cuomo. “The media seems to have this fascination to try to use the death of John McCain to further belittle and beat up Donald Trump.”

Cuomo shot back, saying, “You think we need to do that to find reasons to criticize the president? This is a moment that matters.”

Bakari Sellers then accused the GOP of becoming a party of “cowardice” under President Trump, with members trying to “contort themselves into pretzels” as they defend Trump’s behavior.

“The fact is, you have John McCain who is a war hero. Even my Democrats, even the people on the left who want to chastise him for whatever his policy may have been, we’re saying that now is not the time,” he said. “You have a president this week who did not stand up and show the best of what we can be, and that’s a problem. John McCain deserves all the glory today.”

Sellers added: “You don’t have to kowtow like Rick’s doing right now on TV and make excuses for a president who does not deserve excuses.”

With that, Santorum referenced Cuomo’s brother, Andrew, castigating America as being “never that great” in a speech last Wednesday. It was then that the panel erupted into a schoolyard slap-fest.

“You’re so petty,” Sellers said, shaking his head.

Cuomo interjected: “Come on, don’t play cheap. You talk about my brother … you can’t do better than that? I’ll give you a hundred things about my brother that are true that are much worse than that.”​

Santorum is absolutely spot on here. The mainstream media will do anything within their power to find something to justify some sort of attack on President Trump and his administration. Even when he does good things, they still find a way to flip it and make it negative.

Right now, Trump bashing sells. They play it all off as if it is some sort of crusade to rid the world of corruption and evil, but at the end of the day, it’s about two things: money and the progressive agenda.

The left-wing media is nothing more than propaganda producers for the Democratic Party. They are likely rewarded in many ways for their service and are thus willing to sell out the American people to get ahead. Tragic, really.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
