Now imagine if Republicans were all gathered in one indoor location to attend a ritzy event in which the entire evening was spent bashing their political opponent using inside jokes, glib observations, and a general haughtiness for all of America to see?
They would be considered monsters, conspiracy theorists, and even worse, murderers. We know this because it occurred on numerous occasions throughout the pandemic. Fortunately for liberals, the same rules don’t apply.
A significant number of journalists and staffers from major networks have tested positive for COVID-19 in the wake of Saturday’s annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
What’s worse is Secretary of State Antony Blinken also tested positive for the China Virus.
Employees of CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, and other outlets have all reported positive COVID-19 tests after the event, which saw host Trevor Noah joke about its potential as a “superspreader,” according to a report.

One ABC reporter, Jon Karl, who has since tested positive, was seen shaking hands with President Joe Biden at the event.
“We worked hard to publicize our protocols and encouraged those eligible to get booster shots in the weeks leading up to the dinner. Our event implemented protocols that went beyond any guidance or regulation issued by the CDC or the DC health department,” White House Correspondents’ Association President Steven Portnoy said.
The WHCD is a weekend full of interactions and functions, the report noted.
Along with the dinner, the weekend is full of parties organized by news outlets and various talent agencies.
“There are undoubtedly [hundreds] of crowded indoor gatherings across the United States every day. Not to mention millions of people dining at restaurants, going to work or school, etc.,” one journalist tweeted in response to the breakout of cases.
“It is kinda weird to focus on the WHCD as though it’s some sort of outlier; it is very much the norm!”
Yes, that’s true, it is the norm. However, when you spend years chastising and criticizing people of a different political bent for doing the exact same thing with the exact same results, people will begin to point out the hypocrisy.
Liberals are brilliant at acting as if what happened one year ago is somehow erased from the collective memory and we just suddenly forget that they spent two full years calling conservatives murderers for spending holidays with our families.
