Donald Trump might have a fondness for baseless claims — he has for decades, and he always will — but his response to a recent ridiculous claim that the “mainstream” media is harder on Joe Biden than it was on him could not be more spot on. I mean, you don’t even have to be Donald Trump to figure that one out.
We’ll get to Donald’s comments in a minute.
His comments were in response to a moronic Washington Post opinion piece by columnist Dana Milbank last week, titled: The media treats Biden as badly as — or worse than — Trump. Here’s proof. Needless to say, the op-ed is nonsensical from the outset, beginning with the ROTFL headline.
Even better, Biden organ-grinder monkey (chief of staff) Ron Klein tweeted a link to Milbank’s goofy op-ed, along with “For your consideration.”

Milbank’s op-ed was hilarious in its purposeful delusion.
We need a skeptical, independent press. But how about being partisans for democracy? The country is in an existential struggle between self-governance and an authoritarian alternative.
“Skeptical”? Please. And, “democracy”? What, you want even more Democrat control? And the silly “existential” thing? You lefties have beat that to death, have you not? (See: “Climate change, the existential threat of our time,” et al.) Please sit down.
Here’s a bit more silliness from Milbank before we move on to reality:
After a honeymoon of slightly positive coverage in the first three months of the year, Biden’s press for the past four months has been as bad as — and for a time worse than — the coverage Trump received for the same four months of 2020.
Think about that. In 2020, Trump presided over a worst-in-world pandemic response that caused hundreds of thousands of unnecessary deaths; held a superspreader event at the White House and got covid-19 himself …
[He] praised QAnon adherents; embraced violent white supremacists; waged a racist campaign against Black Lives Matter demonstrators; attempted to discredit mail-in voting; and refused to accept his defeat in a free and fair election, leading eventually to the violence of Jan. 6 …
And yet Trump got press coverage as favorable as, or better than, Biden is getting today.
Sure, Biden has had his troubles, with the delta variant, Afghanistan and inflation. But the economy is rebounding impressively, he has signed major legislation, and he has restored some measure of decency, calm and respect for democratic institutions.
Can’t make it up, don’t have to. Except Dana Milbank did — but he doesn’t matter.
In an exclusive, new interview with Breitbart, Trump responded, calling Milbank’s op-ed “laughable.”
Excerpts, as transcribed by Breitbart:
We’ve done things that nobody has ever done. Peace in the Middle East — we would have had that also, but we had four countries sign. We would have had peace—the Abraham Accords, it’s called.
So many different things. I will say, in the end, people are starting to see we did a massive amount of work, whether it was military or taxes or all the different things we did.
We had a great economy with no inflation. I did it twice because I had to rebuild it after COVID hit the world. The world was hit actually relatively harder than us.
I think it’s not even a contest. I think they’re treating him with kid gloves. You know why? There’s so much damage that has been done to our country, and this new bill, this Build Back Worse bill, is just a disaster — a disaster for the country.
Listen, as anyone who has followed me for a while knows, I have had my share of issues with Donald Trump. I still do. I always will. I’m sure he’d have his issues with me, but I digress. But Trump is right as rain here and Milbank and leftist loons like him couldn’t be more TDS-riddled wrong. It really is that simple.
Trump continued, blistering one of his favorite targets, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. Excerpts:
I got him elected because when I endorsed him and helped him with his commercials and other stuff, I got him elected. I regret I didn’t run somebody in the primary against him because he’s been terrible.
He’s now giving it away with the debt ceiling. He could have used the debt ceiling to get rid of ‘Build Back Worse.’ He could have used it, and he would have won. It’s a powerful thing. He gave it away today for nothing. He got nothing from it.
Also, breaking up the bill was a disaster because it made it much easier to get this catastrophe that’s getting ready to come—they’re not going to be able to be stopping it. If you kept it together, it was tougher to get the votes. Then, of course, he gave them a two-month extension. What was that all about? That gave them time to get their act together, and they did.
With the ‘Unfrastructure’ bill — that’s the infrastructure bill, but because there’s very little infrastructure, I call it the ‘Unfrastructure’ bill. There’s only 11 percent infrastructure — but they could have said just for the asking, ‘We’re not going to give you those 19 votes.’
They gave them 19 votes. What a shame, including McConnell. He should have said, ‘You got to finish the wall or we’re not going to do it, and they would have done it.’
The entire interview (below) will be available this weekend, said Breitbart.

As to issues with Trump, lemme just say the following — fully aware of the “slings and arrows from the predictable,” to follow. No problem. I voted for Donald, twice. Fire away.
The Republican Party is as much at a crossroads right now as are the Democrats. Denying or ignoring that is denying or ignoring reality. The time for relitigated 2020 has passed. Regardless of whether one believes the “massive voter fraud” narrative, or not, it’s time to look out the windshield, not through the rearview mirror.
America stands at a scarier juncture than it has in my lifetime, and it’s going to get even scarier.
Regardless of Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, or any other Democrat, the left’s hellbent goal of destroying America as we know it will not change. If anything, the rabid left will only become more hellbent in 2024 — after likely getting its ass handed to it in the 2022 midterms.
If the Republicans are distracted by a past that no longer matters or are torn by unnecessary internal strife in 2024 that cannot work to a conservative advantage, regardless of how one tries to spin it.
“Unified” is a bit of a utopian dream in politics, but the GOP must be closer to it than will be the Democrats, who historically have an uncanny ability to unite behind even the worst of candidates.
Want proof? See: “Joe Biden.”
