Conservative radio host Mark Levin slammed the liberal media’s double standard in its treatment of President Donald Trump and Democratic 2020 candidate Joe Biden.

Levin fired a shot at media outlets that have been in an uproar over the president’s comment during a press briefing this week about disinfectant killing the coronavirus. The same “crazy ass media” however, dismiss fumbles by the former vice president and have all but ignored a sexual assault claim against him.

“The crazy ass media insist that the president recommended that we drink disinfectant,” Levin tweeted Friday, referring to the deliberate misrepresentation of Trump’s comments as if he were suggesting injecting a disinfectant like Lysol into the body.

“I just don’t know why these morons aren’t fired by the corporate executives who own these newsrooms. The insanity is beyond belief,” Levin wrote.

The president’s comment came after Department of Homeland Security official William Bryan spoke of “the powerful effect that solar light appears to have on killing the virus, both surfaces and in the air” during a coronavirus task force briefing Thursday.

“I see the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute, one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning?” the president said after asking Bryan about testing the use of light in the body to kill the virus. “As you see, it gets in the lungs, it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it would be interesting to check that.”

Trump’s words were used by the media to ignite a firestorm and even lawmakers began to spread the misinformation, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared that the president “is asking people to inject Lysol into their lungs.”

“I can’t believe I have to say this, but please don’t drink bleach,” Biden tweeted Friday.

But, as Levin pointed out in a second tweet Friday, the same media continues to give Biden a pass, ignoring his “obvious dementia.”

“Meanwhile, Biden mumbles and blunders due to obvious dementia issues and they dare not voice any concern that he could, God forbid, become president,” the “Life, Liberty & Levin” host wrote.

Trump himself accused the media of giving his likely 2020 rival a “free pass” during Thursday’s news conference at the White House.

“We have a sleepy guy in the basement of a house, that the press is giving a free pass to, who doesn’t want to do debates because of COVID, and lots of things are happening,” Trump said. “And I watched a couple of interviews and I say, ‘Oh. I look forward to this.’ But they are keeping him sheltered because of coronavirus, and he’s not moving around. He’s not moving too much.”

And as the press continues to bash the president and spread misrepresented comments, they are keeping relatively quiet on the sexual allegations by Tara Reade, a former staffer for Biden in 1993. It took until April 12 for The New York Times to address the allegation which had been covered by other outlets as breaking news nearly two weeks prior.

Biden’s team has denied the allegation and media outlets have failed to ask him about it.
