Appearing on Friday’s CBS This Morning to analyze President Trump’s July 4th address, Face the Nation moderator Margaret Brennan thought it was “unusual” that the event was actually “unifying.” She also complained that Trump “overemphasized America’s military might” throughout the speech.

“And, Margaret, the Fourth of July speech that President Trump gave at that rally, is it more like a Trump rally?,” asked puzzled fill-in co-host Jericka Duncan. She noted: “I mean, he had a lot of ties in there with unity, equality, special tributes obviously to the military.” Brennan agreed that it was “kind of unusual” to hear Trump say things like, “America is one people chasing one dream. We’re all made by the same almighty god,” and use other “unifying phrases.”

She concluded: “It sounded very, very different from the typical Trump rallies that are often broadcast on cable news.”

Brennan then fretted that Trump’s speech “overemphasized America’s military might and it underplayed the American values that have been used to justify the use of force...” She confidently predicted “that is something that the President will be criticized on.”

Co–host Tony Dokoupil wrapped up the segment by declaring: “Yeah, Margaret, they say the speech didn’t have politics in it, but when you have the president speaking on the Fourth of July, it is inherently political.”

It doesn’t matter how non-controversial Trump’s speech was, the media have decided that it was offensive to their liberal sensibilities.
