This is your tax dollars at work, America.
NPR has long been a cheerleader for the left but its latest effort to undermine President Donald Trump was quite a stretch.
In a piece about the debate physicians are having on whether the longevity of presidents demands tests of their mental health, NPR promoted the story with a tweet focused on Trump’s family history.
Trump is the oldest American president to ever take office, and his family has a history of dementia. https://t.co/PvPhCafFx5

This is the disgustingly biased tweet from NPR to engage readers in a discussion on dementia. https://t.co/KSkie3epdz

“At 70, Trump is the oldest American president to ever take office. Couple his age with a family history of dementia — his father Fred developed Alzheimer’s disease in his 80s — and one could argue that the question of baseline cognitive testing for the U.S. head of state has taken on new relevance,” Bret Stetka wrote in the NPR story.
@NPR Even though I am a long time member of my 3 local stations, I completely support pulling all gov’t funding because of bias like this.

Twitter users did not take the bias lying down, and plenty wanted to know why Hillary didn’t get the same treatment.

@NPR Garbage Outlet. Hillary is the same age and obviously in a terrible state. Would you have ran this hit piece on her?

@NPR wow, inference and manipulation of your audience under the guise of public service serves as ‘real’ journalism? Very sad.
