If you’ll remember from 2016, CNN’s Brian Stelter defended Hillary Clinton from rumors by Trump camp and decried them for being unfair and mean and uncivil and he clutched every pearl on God’s green Earth.
But it’s 2019 now, and we got a Republican president so now it’s totally OK to question his mental health.
Now look at his tweets from 2016:
Rubbish made to LOOK like news. Stretcher at a Clinton rally (totally normal; rallygoers sometimes faint) becomes proof of a health coverup https://t.co/VrMdyY1wuK— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) October 4, 2016
Clinton addresses health smears on @JimmyKimmel tonight: "I do feel sometimes like this campaign has entered into an alternative universe…"— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) August 23, 2016
He’s pretty insistent on debunking “conspiracies” about Clinton’s health – and even some about Trump’s health!
Please no conspiracy theories about Trump's health https://t.co/1YS3HK9gEY— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) September 27, 2016
And yet now, he’s giving airtime and credence to theories about Trump’s mental health. That’s what we call “hypocritical” in our line of business.
