It is outrageous to see Democrats and their allies in the media once again try to spin the truth to fit their political agenda. President Biden’s recent decision to have the family of Tyre Nichols attend his State of the Union address on Feb 7th is just another example of his attempt to score political points and exploit a tragedy for his own benefit.
Fox News reported, Bill Maher, a prominent liberal commentator, had the audacity to call the President’s invitation to the Nichols family “tragedy porn” and “exploitative of a family in grief.” This is a clear attempt to discredit the President and undermine the memory of Tyre Nichols.
The State of the Union is a time-honored tradition that allows the President to address the nation and share his vision for the future. It is a time for the President to show leadership and bring the country together, not to divide it further.
The family of Tyre Nichols deserves to be honored and their grief acknowledged, and it is not up to Maher or any other left-wing commentator to decide otherwise.
Democrats should be ashamed of themselves for trying to compare President Biden’s invitation to the Nichols family to former President Trump’s invitation to Rush Limbaugh.
The difference between the two is clear: President Biden is using this opportunity to bring attention to a tragedy and show solidarity with the victims, while President Trump was honoring a conservative icon.
It is also disappointing to see that Maher and other Democrats are trying to dismiss the State of the Union as irrelevant and outdated. The State of the Union is a critical component of our democracy and a symbol of our unity as a nation.
It is not just another Hollywood awards show, as Maher and Stephens suggest. The State of the Union provides a platform for the President to share his vision and for the country to come together to address our common challenges.
In conclusion, President Biden’s invitation to the family of Tyre Nichols is a noble gesture that should be applauded by all Americans, regardless of political affiliation.
Democrats and their allies in the media should stop their partisan attacks and show respect for the victims and their families. The State of the Union is an important tradition that must be upheld and protected, not dismissed or ridiculed.
