Major media outlets denounced Donald Trump’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention as “dark” and “ominous,” but when Hillary Clinton accepted her nomination, the same publications ran glowing articles, praising her as an “angelic” leader.
Trump delivered his acceptance speech on the last day of the RNC earlier in July. The Republican presidential nominee highlighted that although America was plagued by violence, his administration would put a stop to it if elected.
“It’s waiting to see if we will rise to the occasion, and if we will show the whole world that America is still free and independent and strong,” Trump said.
The mainstream media slammed him for his words, delivery and overall message.
The New York Times ran the headline, “His Dark Tone, Donald Trump Takes GOP Mantle.” The July 21 article described Trump as “ominous sounding” and said he used an “angry tone and dark imagery” to describe America.
The Huffington Post ran the headline, “Donald Trump’s Speech Was Not Very American.” The article went on to say that Trump’s phrase “I am your voice” would be remembered as “the most chilling ― and foreign” words said on a presidential stage.
A Washington Post article said Trump “painted a dire portrait of a lawless, terrorized nation.”
“Trump’s relentlessly gloomy tone was a jarring contrast to the sunny introduction by his daughter Ivanka Trump,” the article stated.
After Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton gave her speech at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night, media outlets reveled in her message.
“America is once again at a moment of reckoning. Powerful forces are threatening to pull us apart. Bonds of trust and respect are fraying,” Clinton said in her speech.
The New York Times had an article on how Clinton “radiated confidence, from her pungent delivery and easy laugh to the unusually expressive ways she shifted her tone and delighted in her own best lines.”
The Huffington Post ran the headline, “Hillary Clinton Looks Downright Angelic In A White Pantsuit At The DNC.”
A Washington Post article said Clinton portrayed herself as an “inclusive leader” and that the speech was the “highest-profile address of her decades-long political career.”
