Not All Presidential Offspring Equal: Newscasts Which Ignored Bush Pregnancy
Newsbusters.org ^ | April 17, 2014 | Brent Baker

On Wednesday morning, December 12, 2012, Jenna Bush Hager, the daughter of former President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush, announced on NBC’s Today show that she was expecting. That evening, the NBC Nightly News allocated 33 seconds to the revelation while neither ABC’s World News nor the CBS Evening News bothered to mention it.

Today (Thursday, April 17), Chelsea Clinton, daughter of a President and First Lady belonging to the media’s preferred party, announced at a Clinton Global Initiative event in New York City that she is pregnant – and the networks broke out the baby showers in joy.

I care not for either dynasty. And when one of the Obama girls is “punished” with a baby, I won’t care then, either.

She is never referred to as Chelsea Mezvinsky. Why?

I do think the Clinton pregnancy is much bigger news.

After all, there is no doubt the Bush baby will survive until birth. That cannot be said of the Clinton baby.

One grandpa is an impeached President ant the other grandpa is a convicted felon. How often do we see that? The kid is obviously destined for greatness.

Perhaps it’s news because she was so not attractive, it’s a miracle she found someone who would marry her. I watched her grow up and her facial structure does not lend itself to attractive and her hair was a mess. If the hair had been contained to frame her face to help soften the angles of her face, that would have helped. Her mother was a failure in helping that kid look better. Of course, her mother’s hair was usually stringy with oil, needing to be washed. That whole family needs to be behind a wall so we can’t see them.

Interesting - a STRATEGICALLY TIMED kid...just before her mother has to deal with the Primaries.

Nothing is beyond the DEMOCRATS.

The Party that hasn’t run into a form or method of abortion that it didn’t love goes gaga over a pregnancy.

If Web Hubbell was around he would take offense at your criticism of his girlfriend and daughter.

Of course Jenna’s mother was not expected by some to be running for president next time around, while Chelsea’s is - and as Bob Beckel said this afternoon on Fox - “The baby’s due sometime this fall, and we’re going to ride it for all it’s worth” - or as someone else said -”it’ll be a good prop”......

It will be held as a breakthrough that makes her qualified for high office - as if she were the first human in history to make a baby

Exactly - of course, Romney had how many grandkids, including one adopted who was black I believe, and it didn’t help him any - but then he’s a Republican, so it doesn’t count.....

And here I was thinking that many might feel "Granny Clinton" is too old for President.

We just have to spin this the right way and learn how to get down and dirty.

There may not even be a baby in there. This may be yet another rallying device. If the majority of Dems and Rinos get voted out in November, let’s just say the fate of certain imaginery babies could be severely effected.

“There may not even be a baby in there. This may be yet another rallying device. If the majority of Dems and Rinos get voted out in November, let’s just say the fate of certain imaginery babies could be severely effected.”

Agreed, this child will be used as a political tool for at least 20-30 years. This child will be brought out for everything gun control, healthcare, or climate change. Everything. When adolescence rolls around there will be praise for child whether it is somewhat “normal”, a drugge, lgbt, etc. This child will live a life of leftist privilege and indroctrination.

This is going to be a severely warped individual.

Jenna’s pregancy was everywhere. I am not sure what people are talking about. In fact, they had specials on Jenna on all the networks. Heck, NBC hired her.
