WATCH: Spot The Difference Between How CNN Covers Bernie And Trump’s Mt Rushmore Trips

Written by Wes Walker on July 4, 2020

The day has finally come for President Trump’s big rally and speech at Mount Rushmore. CNN, outdid themselves, finding a way to be both Anti-Trump AND Anti-Patriot.

They decided the best way to cover Trump’s visit to this classic American landmark was to… crap all over both the landmark and the President’s event itself.

Here is CNN putting some serious negative spin on the event itself, in advance.

For President Trump, nothing could be more natural than to stand alongside such giants of American history. On Friday night, he will travel to Mount Rushmore for an early Independence Day party, reviving the environmentally worrisome tradition of July Fourth fireworks over their massive carved likenesses.
Such frivolity might seem in poor taste amid a fast-worsening pandemic — and unwise since social distancing won’t be required at the event. But the holiday that celebrates independence from Britain is being used to bolster Trump’s false narrative that the country is doing just fine. — CNN

But CNN also made a point of raising controversy about the site itself… tying the event and the locations significance to both slavery AND to the nation’s checkered past with Native Americans.

CNN’s reporter, Leyla Santiago was recorded as saying:

“President Trump will be at Mount Rushmore, where he’ll be standing in front of a monument of two slave owners and on land wrestled away from Native Americans,” she said. “I’m told that, uh, he’ll be focusing on the effort to ‘tear down our country’s history.'” — FoxNews

Funny how different their coverage of Bernie Sanders was at the same location, just a couple of years earlier:

Here’s the President’s Speech.
