While the media was embarrassing themselves with their hatred at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, President Trump was holding a rally for his supporters in Michigan this past weekend.
“You may have heard I was invited to another event tonight, the White House Correspondents’ Dinner,” the President told an adoring crowd. “But I’d much rather be at Washington, Michigan, than in Washington, D.C., right now — that I can tell you.”
And as the media were getting skewered for inviting a mean-spirited comedienne who dove head first into vulgar anti-Trump rants and proceeded to launch personal attacks against White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, something happened at the rally in Michigan which will no doubt go unreported.
Great evening last night in Washington, Michigan. The enthusiasm, knowledge and love in that room was unreal. To the many thousands of people who couldn’t get in, I cherish you….and will be back!

At one point during Trump’s speech about immigration agents enforcing laws and dealing with gangs, an audience member suffered an unknown medical issue.
The President, showing genuine concern, stopped his speech and called for a doctor.
“A doctor please? Doctor. A doctor please,” he said in the hopes of finding someone to aid the ill person.
He later praised medical personnel saying, “Those are the people we love, those are great people.”

What’s notable about his reaction is this – Trump stopped to point out somebody needed help, then watched and waited until they were tended to. He put the spotlight on the person, not himself.

Compare and contrast that to Barack Obama, who would usually keep talking when something of this nature occurred at his rallies.
At one event, as firefighters rushed to help a woman who had passed out, Obama told the crowd, “Well, I’m not the only one stopping to help her.”
Here’s a clip in which Obama dismisses the severity of the individual’s plight by saying ‘they’ll be fine,’ jokes about drinking water, leads the crowd in an exercise routine, then shouts ‘I love you too’ to a starstruck fan.
Why won’t the media cover something like Trump coming to the aid of an audience member? Because they don’t want to show the man having empathy for somebody else.
Why does it matter? During the Obama years, the fawning media constantly covered audience members fainting at his rallies as if the former President were some sort of messiah.
A CNN report from 2009 describes one such scenario, noting the audience member was “overwhelmed.”
The New York Times covered a rash of fainting spells at Obama rallies in 2012.
But that was Obama, beloved by the American media. The same thing happens at a Trump rally and nobody is going to cover it.
