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.”
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.
“To mock him during the coverage of the president’s funeral is just despicable garbage. I would say ABC News should apologize, but it wouldn’t be sincere if it did. This is about the billionth example of unprofessional journalism in their attacks on Trump. It’s only more outrageous because of the solemn occasion,” Gainor said. – READ MORE
