See Howard Dean’s Outrageous Accusation Against Trump After 1st Debate
If a supporter of Trump had accused Clinton of being a Coke user, there would be outrage and 24/7 coverage on all the state-sponsored media stations. But former Democratic Presidential contender and Vermont Governor Howard Dean made that accusation against Donald Trump during the most recent debate.
According to The Blaze:
Notice Trump sniffing all the time. Coke user?
— Howard Dean (@GovHowardDean) September 27, 2016
MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” broached the topic early Wednesday, expressing disbelief and suggesting that the Clinton campaign should make Dean apologize for the allegation.
Host Joe Scarborough was stunned, “What in the world is going on there? A doctor diagnosing a coke problem because a guy was sniffing?” Scarborough said.
Mocking the tweet, Scarborough talked about drug testing his 8-year-old son because “he gets the flu once a month.”
Regular “Morning Joe” panelist Mark Halperin from Bloomberg Politics remarked, “I hope Dr. Dean is watching, and I hope he calls in today and explains,” Halperin said, adding, “If a Trump surrogate said something like that—” causing the panel to react in unison, with Scarborough saying, “A Trump surrogate would get killed.”
Former congressman Harold Ford Jr. (D-Tenn.) was on the panel and addressed the words of his “friend,” Gov. Dean: “If this was said about Secretary Clinton or something in the same realm, we would be lighting this person up and urging the campaign to denounce these words.”
It’s interesting that even the liberal pundits recognize the double-standard. If a Trump surrogate had made that accusation of Clinton, you wouldn’t hear the end of it. But somehow, Democrat Dean gets another pass from the media, with hardly a mention.
It makes one hope Trump comes out to the 2nd debate with guns blazing.
