President Trump and his supporters are absolutely right that there’s a glaring contrast between the way media treat this president and way the press handled his predecessor, Barack Obama.

Mark Davis: After Comey

Comey

Reactions to President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey are falling along predictable lines. There’s a strain of conservative comments that this was overdue, even though his late October re-opening of the Hillary Clinton e-mail case may have contributed to Trump’s win in November. That’s the recently expressed belief...

Looking back on President Trump’s opening months in office, not even the most determined detractors of the president can rightly blame him for dividing the country, since the nation was already deeply divided before he came to office. Barack Obama lost control of Congress to the opposition party, barely winning...

The mainstream media has been determined to find fault with President Trump’s performance during his first 100 days in office.
