Mainstream media seemed to have a meltdown over President Donald Trump tweeting a meme about Conan the hero Special Forces dog.

Trump tweeted a photo of a Medal of Honor recipient — who was edited out and replaced by a dog https://t.co/O3VWxMTt9E

They even sent people out to investigate the meme of the president giving the dog a paw medal. They even contacted the White House and checking with the Medal of Honor winner who said he thought the dog deserved it and wasn’t offended in the slightest.
But as Twitchy found, some couldn’t help but notice the difference in the way that media was dealing with Trump’s tweet as opposed to a comparable tweet of his 2016 Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

Clinton was celebrated as a “master troll” who was “living her best life.”

Why when Trump satirically and obviously doctors an image to make a point, he is faulted, but when Hillary does something similar she is celebrated? Don’t tell me it’s because he is POTUS and she is not. I wish those who do this could see the damage they’re doing to journalism. https://t.co/wzehzR16PE

Had Trump tweeted what she did, you know we would have been treated to a MSM coronary over how he was being disrespectful to JFK and using bad language.
