When liberals do it, it is okay. When conservatives do it, the world is about to end. That is the overwhelming theme this election season.
I remember hearing Chris Matthews, not realizing his microphone was on, discuss Melania entering the room with Donald Trump… and his comments were not exactly flattering.
Just watch the video below and listen carefully because in the background, you can hear slimy Matthews saying, “Did you see her walk? Runway walk. My God that is good! I could watch that runway show!”

The tone and nature of his comments made it quite clear he was NOT dreaming of a fashion show and rather making lude comments about Donald Trump’s wife Melania.
I remember waking up the next day and expecting to see this all over the headlines.
In all honesty, I expected an apology by Matthews to be demanded, at the very least, as well as something from the network. I half expected him to be fired… but none of that happened.
As a matter of fact, other than a few right wing alternative websites, ours included in that, this was barely a blip on the radar! Amazingly, there was NO outrage at all over his comments.
Even after Trump’s campaign issues this statement, “Melania Trump is an accomplished businesswoman and entrepreneur in her own right. [It is] unfortunate to see the continuous inaccuracies and misrepresentations made by the media of Mrs. Trump as anything less than the independently successful woman that she is,” nothing was said or done to Matthews.
Fast forward to Friday when a 2005 tape was revealed of Trump and Billy Bash talking like a couple of teenagers in a locker room, and we have national outrage. The tape had no sooner hit the airwaves when liberals and establishment GOPers were calling for Trump to step down!
Now, I am not foolish enough to not realize Trump is running for President and Matthews is a has been reporter, but there still should have been some reaction to this! Or, how about the revelation Barack Obama used the P word in public in front of women at a book reading? Yet again, nothing.
And then we have our buddy Bill Clinton… a man who has done some of the most despicable things possible to women… and the outrage is louder against something Trump said over what Bill Clinton actually did!
I just watched a video of Juanita Broaddrick’s interview with Breitbart and the woman was reduced to tears 38 years AFTER the encounter with Bill Clinton! He ruined this woman’s life and everyone just seems to be okay with that!
If you want to criticize Trump for his comments, fine, all I ask is for equal airtime for the atrocities Bill Clinton has committed and make Hillary answer for them!
Do you remember when Matthews made these comments? Do you believe there is a double standard by the media for conservatives and liberals? Please share this story on Facebook and tell us because we want to hear YOUR voice!
