Trump Bashed, Abedin Gets a Pass

The mainstream media’s selective application of guilt by association never ceases to amaze me.

Anyone a GOP politician comes into contact with has the ability to damage his campaign. It’s like those scary use-a-condom public service ads that warn without protection you are having an intimate experience with every past partner of your current partner.

Someone with outstanding library fines hosts a fundraising dinner and the media wants to know when the candidate is going to return the money and pay the fine?

Consider for a moment all the guilt–by–association headlines for the Trump campaign. On second thought, a moment won’t be long enough. Take an hour or so.

Corey Lewandowski, the scourge of female reporters, is used to reinforce Trump’s alleged misogyny. Paul Manafort’s ties to Ukrainian strong people (trying to avoid charges of misogyny myself) are a drag on the campaign. Newer campaign guru Stephen Bannon is supposed to have gone hands–on with his wife 20 years ago.

Trump’s father isn’t even safe resting in his grave. His alleged business dealings are supposed to be a bad omen for Trump now. And some redneck that puts his sheets on his head, instead of the bed, is supposed to cause a Trump apology tour when he endorsed The Donald.

It’s enough to make Trump want to hire only robots.

But if Republicans are the tar baby, Democrats are the Teflon baby. The lead in a recent New York Post story blared, “Hillary Clinton’s top campaign aide, and the woman who might be the future White House chief of staff to the first female U.S. president, for a decade edited a radical Muslim publication that opposed women’s rights and blamed the U.S. for 9/11.”

Lewandowski may or may not have left fingerprints on a woman’s arm, but Huma Abedin’s fingerprints are all over a Shariah–compliant, anti-U.S. publication and no one in the MSM can be bothered! Abedin was assistant editor of the "Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs" from 1995 until 2008. Abedin was even on the magazine’s masthead during Hillary Clinton’s time in the Senate.

Yet no one is calling for Abedin’s resignation from the Clinton campaign. No one is asking Hillary to disavow the anti–women, anti-U.S., anti-homosexual content that appeared in the journal during the time Abedin was intimately involved.

This is partly because Hillary refuses to answer questions from conservative media outlets and the leftists have no intention of asking.

If it weren’t for the double standard the mainstream media wouldn’t have any standards at all this election.
