CNN Gives Negative Coverage To Trump Mount Rushmore Visit…But Guess How They Treated Obama’s Visit

(Tea Party 247) – Ahead of President Donald Trump’s Friday visit to Mount Rushmore, CNN breathlessly detailed the monument as a “monument of two slave owners” on “land wrestled [sic] away from Native Americans,” joining a chorus of triggered leftists slamming the Fourth of July event.

However, as Breitbart noted on Friday, in 2008, the same network celebrated the landmark when visited by then-Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) as he visited along the campaign trail of his historic election.

Then, CNN anchor Ron Marciano said: “Barack Obama is campaigning in South Dakota. That state’s primary is Tuesday. Obama arrived there late last night and got a good look around Mt. Rushmore — it’s quite a sight if you haven’t seen it.”

To which his fellow anchor Betty Nguyen added: “Barack Obama is in South Dakota today. He arrived there last night. Take a look at this. He got a good glimpse of the majestic Mount Rushmore. Well, South Dakota and Montana have closed out the primary season on Tuesday.”

12 years later, however, they’re singing a very different tune about the larger-than-life tribute to four of our greatest presidents.

Senior Washington correspondent Joe Johns said:

[A]t a time of racial unease, when protesters are tearing down statues of slaveholders and calling for the names of Confederate generals to be removed from army bases, the Rushmore event is a reminder that Trump is fighting to preserve these relics of heritage and history that some see as symbols of oppression. And to indigenous people, Mt. Rushmore, with four white presidents, two of whom were slave owners, is one of those symbols.

Stu Whitney, a Sioux Falls Argus Leader columnist, told the network:

I think that is a source of concern for people that see this certainly within a state with a Native American population nearly 10 percent and much higher in Rapid City, concerned about a place that has a lot of spiritual significance, And historical significance when you look at what they and most historians consider to be broken promises and broken treaties.

While correspondent Leyla Santiago told Jake Tapper on The Lead: “President Trump will be at Mt. Rushmore where he’ll be standing in front of a monument of two slave owners and on land wrestled away from Native Americans told that be focusing on the effort to, quote, tear down our country’s history.”

  11. If Biden were at Mt Rushmore those media hacks would have been extolling the site as a great place for the former VP to celebrate. But from the basement that gets a bit difficult.

  12. yes it was very funny to switch back and forth to CNN and Fox CNN says nasty things and FOX has trump giving his speech. i heard nothing diversive about the speech except that obama giving the same praise years ago. but CNN says he’s standing in front of “bad” people. just as obama did

  13. Well thank God that our president is a Republican, which is the party that freed that slaves from the Democrats that kept them.

  14. What do you expect from those lien dem. parts bot anything good allthe care about is lining there pockets and raising taxes and trying with all there lies to try and defeat the president with there lien bullshit .

  15. CNN are hypocrites. Such a shame they lost the ability to report and only know how to give ugly misleading opinions. I can’t watch CNN anymore. It used to be one of the most truthful informative stations but now…………

  16. Obama is not free of slaves his family owned slaves so any monument of Obama should be destroyed. His family should be considered racist and STOP calling out white people as racist. We are a hard working average family and our relatives NEVER owned slaves. We were brought up that all people are equal and God made everyone.

  17. I basically make about $12,000-$18,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it . This is what I’ve been doing old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 10-13 hours a week from home

  19. Oh, yeah, the Clinton/Communist News Network (CNN) has really outdone themselves (AGAIN!) in the hypocrisy department! It apparently hasn’t sunk in yet just how much the Silent Majority are onto them, so they keep pumping out the same old Marxist bilge commonly associated with fake news propaganda outlets! I guess they’ll never learn the reason why their viewership ratings are in the tank! Hell, even MSDNC has higher ratings, and they’re the proverbial joke without a punch line!

  20. Who cares what CNN says, they have less credibility than the Russian propaganda newspaper Pravda.
    If CNN was in print I would use it as toilet paper.

  21. CNN, you forgot to mention that the Indians stole that same land from earlier more ancient tribes. By the way, why have you not complained about Planned Parenthood being created by a white supremacist, Margaret Sanger? And what about Yale University? It is named after a slave owner AND slave merchant. Are we gonna’ burn it to the ground? Last, but not least, is the slave party of Democrats. The union fought Democrats to free slaves. The Democrats then created the KKK, wrote Jim Crow laws and enforced them and voted against the 1964 Civil Rights act.

    • The democrats also made all non-whites take a test to register as a democrat. This happened almost all through to the early 60’s.

  22. Not surprised that the Clinton news network would broadcast that. They hate this wonderful country & hate The POTUS even more.
