CNN appeared to bury the leader by sounding the alarm oh “the large crowd” and “the small social distance” at the White House event commemorating the historic peace agreement between Israel, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain.
On Tuesday, President Trump was joined by Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu, UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed al-Nahyan and Bahrain Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalif to sign the Abrahamic Accords, something the president hailed as “tomorrow’s morning East.”
However, CNN’s coverage of the event was less focused on the groundbreaking peace deal and instead shamed the White House for holding such an event in the midst of a pandemic.

During the network at At 3 p.m., CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin accused the president of “denying the science”
Baldwin highlighted that these events took place after the released footage of Trump’s interviews with Bob Woodward, who in the early months of the pandemic talked about the dangers of the virus with the veteran journalist, while at the time striking a different tone in public.
She then turned it over to CNN’s White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins, who was accompanied by an aerial graphic that read, “TRUMP HOLDS WHITE HOUSE EVENT WITH LARGE PEOPLE, A LITTLE SOCIAL DISTANCE.”
Collins reported that there were “more masks at this event” than before, but credited “foreign delegations” who “wanted to adhere to stricter protocols.” She noted that many top officials who attended the event were not used to masks, including Attorney General William Barr, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and coronavirus task force member Dr. Scott Atlas.
She continued to compare Israel’s handling of the outbreak, which restarts a nationwide lockdown due to a resurgence of the virus, which requires Israelis to stay within 1,500 meters of their house, and stressed that the rules are “very different” for President Trump and his government. .
“It’s a striking difference, isn’t it?” Baldwin responded.

The CNN anchor then offered Dr. Rob Davidson, whom she billed as an “emergency physician,” without revealing that he was previously a Democratic congressional candidate in 2018, piles on the president, suggesting he “doesn’t care” about the potential health risks from the White House event.
CNN continued its overly negative, coronavirus-focused tone against the Abraham agreements that signed throughout its programming.
NewsBusters CEO Curtis Houck smashed the liberal network for “trivializing” what he described as a “monumental feat” from the Trump administration.
“Despite denying himself as full of hypocrites when it comes to enforcing the coronavirus pandemic guidelines, CNN does not care about ethics, so they will quarrel about who is and does not wear masks or is socially distanced. “And that’s what they did today to reject the signing of the Abrahamic agreements,” Houck told Fox News.

Radio host Buck Sexton blew up the anti-Trump network in response to its graphic graphics highlighting the lack of “social distancing” instead of the peace deal.
“Once again, CNN manages to be the worst news network, but the best comedy channel,” Sexton wrote.
Even the conservative satirical site The Babylon Bee had fun at the expense of CNN and ran the headline “CNN criticizes Israel, Arab leaders for shaking hands in the midst of a pandemic.”
CNN has had a history of downplaying Trump’s recent foreign policy achievements. Last week, the anti-Trump network completely avoided coverage of the announced peace deal between Israel and Bahrain during its primetime lineup.

Last month, “CNN Tonight” anchor Don Lemon used the Israel-UAE peace deal to mock Trump after National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien suggested the president be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.
“Wondering why he wants a Nobel Prize so hard? … Oh, you know who has one, right? President Barack Obama!” The CNN anchor boasted.
Lemon’s colleagues Anderson Cooper and Chris Cuomo avoided the topic altogether, as did their primetime competitors on MSNBC.
