The mainstream media was once again found have have egg on their face, while chomping away at the foot in their mouth.
All week we heard that Donald Trump was about to ruin the Fourth of July. The infotainment industry was absolutely sure that the President was going to turn his “Salute to America” celebration into little more than a campaign rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, and they spent the days leading up to to the event lambasting him in every way imaginable.
Some networks even shied away from airing the Commander in Chief’s speech – an undeniable partisan protest coming from allegedly neutral “news” organizations.
But then Trump took the stage and shattered their preconceived notions.
President Trump struck a patriotic, nonpartisan and unifying note during his address at Fourth of July celebrations in Washington, D.C., as the massive crowd of attendees avoided clashes despite provocations from protesters.
The event defied the critics who said the celebration on Thursday would be a partisan political spectacle that would not even attract a significant crowd. CBS, ABC, NBC and MSNBC snubbed the celebration and didn’t air it live, save for their online streaming platforms.
Yet a massive crowd gathered on the Lincoln Memorial despite the rain, with Trump later tweeting an aerial photo showing an audience that filled both sides of the memorial’s Reflecting Pool and stretched to the Washington Monument.
The speech itself remained focused on the grand achievements of Americans far and wide, and throughout our nation’s history.
For many spectators, the highlight of the evening were the plentiful flyovers by some of the country’s most advanced war machines, including a B-2 Stealth Bomber that drew a massive round of applause from the capacity crowd.
