Liberal Media Goes All-In on ‘White House Chaos’

Words such as ‘chaos’ and ‘besieged’ are often used in liberal media headlines to describe the administration of President Donald Trump and the mood in the White House. Why?

The media wants to portray the administration as chaotic and unhinged, which may be a recurring theme from the media for the rest of his first term as president. Let’s look at the headlines to see how they portray Trump’s administration:

New York Times: “At a Besieged White House, Tempers Flare and Confusion Swirls” [1]

CNN: “Ivanka Trump hosts anti-human trafficking event amid White House chaos” [2]

Foreign Policy: “With the White House in Chaos, What can Trump’s Israel visit accomplish?” [3]

Washington Post: “Erdogan’s big meeting with Trump gets obscured by White House chaos” [4]

The Daily Beast: “White House Staff ‘Hiding’ as Russia Chaos Engulfs West Wing” [5]
