Home Democrats CNN’s Double Standard Over Biden’s Syrian Airstrike

CNN’s Double Standard Over Biden’s Syrian Airstrike

CNN Is Fake News Kamala Harris, Joe Biden Syrian Airstrike

In a CNN article published on Friday evening, analyst Nick Patton Walsh described Joe Biden’s airstrike on Syria as “minimally lethal” and “a small signal that the Biden administration is not gun-shy.”

Of course, because Joe Biden is angelic, and Donald Trump is evil personified, Walsh added:

Unlike President Donald Trump’s “sledgehammer” diplomacy, the “scalpel”-like strike was a reasonable move in Biden’s efforts to bring Iran back into the 2015 nuclear deal, which Trump pulled out of in 2018.

The article went on to praise Biden’s cabinet of Iran “experts” and criticize the “damage the last four years of Trump has done to faith in careful American diplomacy.”

CNN’s Syrian Airstrike Double Standard

Not surprisingly, CNN can’t even keep their Trump-hate messaging straight.

While they’ll deny it, CNN loves war. In fact, it’s the news network’s original claim to fame, because death and destruction make for good ratings.

So when Trump launched his own strikes on the same militia in Syria in 2019, he received some rare praise from CNN.

But now that Biden is President, CNN quickly did a little revisionist history.

Twitter takes notice of CNN’s Double Standard

CNN Wasn’t Alone In Their Double Standard Over Syrian Airstrikes, Joe Biden, and Kamala Harris Also Did It.

The double standard between Trump and Biden on Syria isn’t exclusive to CNN. Nor for that matter at any other mainstream news network.

It’s even taking place in Joe Biden’s own administration.

Vice President Kamala Harris and Press Secretary Jen Psaki both called out Trump’s 2017 and 2018 missile strike on Syria.

Harris went so far as to lecture Trump that he should have consulted Congress before hiis reckless attack on Syria.

Of course, Kamala Harris said nothing despite Joe Biden not consulting Congress before launching his airstrike on Syria.

When the Trump administration targeted the Kataib Hezbollah militia and other Shia Popular Mobilization Units (PMU).

Which culminated in a drone taking out General Qassem Soleimani, commander of the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) of Iran, in January 2020.

Biden himself led the chorus of Democrats who denounced President Donald Trump’s move at the time, saying he tossed a stick of dynamite into a tinderbox.

But Since Joe Biden is now striking the match on this Tinderbox… All’s Good!
