Several pundits and liberal media figures have claimed for over two years that President Donald Trump is a threat to the media and is putting reporters “lives at risk.”
But when one top Democratic presidential candidate was involved in a physical altercation — the media was nowhere to be found.
Last Saturday, several Democratic 2020 hopefuls attended the Iowa State Fair to speak with voters and act as if Americans should vote for them because they’re “normal” people.
Meanwhile, members of his Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-V.T., campaign were caught on camera manhandling people to make room for their dear leader.[Sponsored] Man Complaining of Headaches Had Shocking Object Inside His Head
According to The Washington Examiner, a female photojournalist was pushed and shoved out of the way when she was part of the press pool trying to speak with Sanders.
How dare people try to ask a presidential candidate a question!
The confrontation exploded after members of Sanders’ campaign physically pushed local journalists away to make room for comrade Bernie to walk unimpeded at the event.
“Do not put your hands on me. You keep pushing me,” the female photographer can be heard yelling at Sanders’ staffers.
Take a look for yourself.
A horde of supporters and reporters followed the 2020 candidates around the entire day.

Following all of the scuffles, Sanders got some photo-ops eating pork chops on a stick and corn dogs without having to worry about any of the “unwashed masses” getting too close to him.
The mainstream media and their liberal talking heads apparently only care about “violence towards the press” when it involves Republicans.
When Trump merely calls the media “fake news” and calls them out endlessly running hit pieces against him, he’s accused of trying to get reporters killed.

But when Biden and Sanders take part in and allow reporters to be physically assaulted, they could not care any less.
