President Trump and Joe Biden both took to the electoral trail this week and it’s worth noting that there is a stark contrast in the media treatment between the two, Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway said Thursday evening.
“It’s beyond propaganda,” Hemingway said during an appearance on Fox News’s “The Ingraham Angle”.
In a town hall on CNN earlier in the evening, Biden was reportedly confronted by friendly supporters who asked “softball” questions. Meanwhile, Trump’s town hall with ABC News on Tuesday was no such thing and the president instead faced criticism in his interactions.
“The media were said to be acting as a PR arm of the Democratic Party,” Hemingway said. “I think it’s a lot easier to understand them just as essentially running the Biden campaign, especially with the problems Biden has in typical campaign conditions. ”

Hemingway stressed that while the president behaves well when surrounded by “hostile” media, Republicans should be in a hurry to consider whether they will tolerate being treated as “second class citizens.”
Even though the media continues to portray Trump as an “evil monster,” Hemingway argued that Trump’s progress since 2016 speaks for itself.
“It doesn’t matter what the media say because I think they are so extreme that people find it hard to believe everything they have to say,” she said.

Hemingway added that recent Trump and Biden campaign events have shown what each candidate is good at – Trump speaking in front of a rowdy large audience and Biden in his “safe place” with the “friendly” media.
