The double standard coming from the media and leftists is being exposed right and left. After President Trump called the looters and rioters “thugs,” he was called a racist. They compared the looters and rioters burning Minneapolis to the ground to the peaceful armed protesters in Lansing, Michigan, fighting for their right to go back to work. President Trump called the Michigan protesters “good people,” but the violent looters “thugs”…Does anyone honestly see anything racist about President Trump’s comments?
One example has surfaced that destroys the left’s effort to make the president look like a racist for calling looters “thugs”:
Twitter is censoring President Trump’s tweets about the Minneapolis riot based on political bias-so here is footage of Obama calling rioters “THUGS…they are not protesting-they’re stealing & committing arson, and they need to be treated as criminals.”

BOOM! THERE IT IS! THE DOUBLE STANDARD! OBAMA CALLED THEM THUGS TOO.
Listen to the fake news below, trying to push a narrative against President Trump:
“When protesters with AK-47s… showed up in Michigan with confederate flags, [Pres. Trump] called those ‘very nice people.’ Yet he called people who are protesting after the death of a black man at the hands of white law enforcement officers, ‘thugs’” @antjuansea tells CBSN pic.twitter.com/foCJcMCy7L

CBS isn’t the only fake news channel. In the past hour, Fox News anchor Chris Wallace lied claiming Trump called the protesters thugs when he was referring to rioters and looters.
The left is also wrong in their claim that President Trump called for shooting protesters, but the media is running with this fake news too:
TMZ reported this: “Donald Trump Says Minneapolis ‘Thugs‘ Should Be Shot.”
President Trump had to clarify his statement that lootings lead to shootings and that it is not true that he called for shooting the looters:
….It was spoken as a fact, not as a statement. It’s very simple, nobody should have any problem with this other than the haters, and those looking to cause trouble on social media. Honor the memory of George Floyd!

The media and leftists are twisting themselves into pretzels to keep the false narrative going against the president.
