They have to find something to mock Trump for even if whatever they’re reporting on has nothing to do with Trump.
Via Fox News:
ABC News correspondents imagined President Trump’s vision for his own state funeral on Wednesday, joking about what the current president would expect compared to the services for George H. W. Bush.
“Probably a different tone in that funeral… first he’s going to choreograph it, so there might be more trumpets and fanfare,” ABC chief foreign correspondent Terry Moran said on the network’s livestream of the Bush funeral.
ABC correspondent Devin Dwyer chimed in, “Yes, he would do it bigger, one would imagine.”
Moran then parroted what he imagined Trump would say, declaring his service would be “the best presidential funeral ever.”
“No one will ever have seen anything like that funeral,” Moran continued.
TheWrap, which quickly noticed the exchange, wrote that ABC’s coverage took an “uncomfortable turn” when the discussion shifted to President Trump’s eventual funeral.
Media Research Center vice president Dan Gainor told Fox News that Bush’s death “has to be seen through the eyes of journalists who use every single event to attack Trump,” but found the ABC News segment particularly appalling.
