Bill Clinton Admits Obama Got Media Favors

This is of course a dog-bites-man headline.

We all knew Obama was getting the leftist media’s kid-gloves treatment.

He was never questioned despite serial prevarication, flip-flopping and general lack of leadership on things like the ‘red-line’ and alleged ‘most ethical administration’ promises. But that’s par for the course.

What’s most interesting is that Bill Clinton, who also got the kid-gloves treatment, admitted in a recent interview the reason why (aside from being a fellow Democrat) is that “they liked having the first African-American president.”

So here’s a former liberal president who played the race card quite often admitting that the race card is the primary reason Obama wasn’t held to the standard which the media are holding out for President Trump.

Hypocrisy at its finest.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

Bill Clinton admitted in an interview on “CBS This Morning” that former President Barack Obama received positive media coverage because of his race.

Washington Times:

“They did treat him [Obama] differently than other Democrats and Republicans,”  Mr. Clinton said in an interview on “CBS This Morning.” “It was the political press.”

Why? “I don’t know. They liked him. And they liked having the first African-American president, and he was a good president I think,” Mr. Clinton said. “I don’t agree with President Trump’s assessment of his service.”

Perhaps even more damning of the political press than their preferential treatment of Obama because of his race was his acknowledgment that “they liked him.” How can that possibly be relevant to our national “gatekeepers” and “watchdogs,” who are not supposed to show favoritism to any politician regardless of his race or their personal feelings about him?
