It’s hard to ignore the obvious difference in treatment that Donald Trump and Joe Biden have received from the media, the public, and even other politicians. From the start of his presidency, Trump was met with harsh criticism and negative coverage from many major news outlets, with CNN and MSNBC often portraying him as a divisive, reckless, and incompetent leader who was unfit for office.
On the other hand, Joe Biden has generally been given a more favorable treatment by the media. While he has faced criticism on issues like his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and immigration policies, he has not been subjected to the same level of personal attacks and vitriol that Trump received.
Additionally, Trump faced significant opposition from Democrats in Congress, many of whom openly criticized and opposed his policies. He was also frequently attacked by prominent Republicans, including some who had previously supported him. In contrast, Biden has faced less opposition from both Democrats and Republicans, and there has not been the same level of hostility and vitriol that Trump faced during his presidency.
There are many other ways in which Trump and Biden have been treated differently as well. For example, Trump was frequently accused of being racist, sexist, and homophobic, while Biden has largely been seen as a champion of progressive values. Additionally, Trump’s use of Twitter and other social media platforms to communicate with the public was often criticized, while Biden has been praised for his measured and diplomatic approach.
While some of these differences can be attributed to individual personalities and leadership styles, others may be the result of broader societal trends and political dynamics. Regardless of the reasons, it’s important to recognize and reflect on these differences in order to better understand the ways in which our leaders are perceived and evaluated by the public.
In my opinion, it is unfair and biased to treat leaders differently based on personal preferences and political affiliations. The media, public, and politicians should aim to treat leaders objectively and fairly, regardless of their individual biases and preferences. The treatment of Trump and Biden highlights the need for unbiased and objective treatment of leaders to ensure fair and balanced coverage of their actions and decisions. Only by doing so can we ensure that we have an informed and engaged public capable of making sound decisions in the democratic process.
