The liberal media quickly changed their reporting system about presidential power grabs during the coronavirus pandemic based on who exactly was in the White House at the time the statement was made.

President Biden sparked a political firestorm on Thursday when he announced that the Labor Department would impose a vaccine mandate on companies with 100 or more employees, a move that has been met with opposition from Republican governors across the country.

While the legality of Biden’s mandate can not be ascertained because the policy will likely be challenged in court, liberal news organizations are buying the idea, which is a significant shift from when President Trump threatened to override governors who ordered houses of worship to close.

Drew Holden, a political commentator who has become famous on Twitter for his viral threads criticizing liberal media hypocrisy, slammed CNN’s coverage of both presidents, comparing yesterday’s headline, “Biden announces new vaccine mandates that could cover 100 million Americans,” to last year’s headline, “Trump claims without evidence that he can ‘override’ governors in many different ways if they don’t…”

Drew Holden also slammed The Associated Press for its skewed framing of both presidents, with one headline reading “Trump continues to claim broad powers he doesn’t have” and the other “BIDEN: GOP governors ‘cavalier’ in opposing vaccine rules.”

ABC News insisted that Trump’s claimed authority over the governors was “unclear,” while accepting Biden’s “have at it” remark about governors at face value.

Last year, liberal media, the Washington Post used the “GOP pounces” trope with the headline, “Trump seizes on new rallying cry to reopen the country, but Democrats see caution as an advantage,” as opposed to its pro-Biden headline, “Federal mandate takes vaccine decision out of employers’ hands.”

Mrs. Brassenstein, a parody Twitter account, also weighed in on the leberal media comparisons, criticizing PBS NewsHour correspondent Yamiche Alcindor for her inconsistent responses to presidential power grabs.

“Pres Trump says he will ‘override the governors’ if they don’t follow new CDC guidance and open places of worship this weekend,” Alcindor wrote. “Context: The 10th Amendment of the Constitution says powers not delegated to federal government are reserved to the states.”

However, Alcindor did not provide any “context” for Biden, tweeting “Biden goes after GOP govs without saying names saying: Talk about bullying schools…If these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic, I will use my powers as president to get them out of the way. He added federal govt will restore 100% of pay for anyone targeted over mandates.”

The user also called out the leftwing news site Raw Story for its 2020 headline, “‘The authority is total’: Trump says he can force governors to reopen the country” and its 2021 headline, “GOP governors throw tantrums after Biden takes action to mandate vaccinations.”
