A little girl was leaning into a lion’s cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the collar
of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, all under the eyes of her screaming parents.


A biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.
Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl
and the biker brings the girl to her terrified parents,  who thank him endlessly. 

A reporter has watched the whole event.
The reporter addressing the Harley rider says, "Sir, this was the most gallant
and bravest thing I’ve seen a man do in my whole life."
The Harley rider replies, "Why, it was nothing, really. The lion was behind bars.
I just saw this little kid in danger, and acted as I felt right."

The reporter says, "Well, I’ll make sure this won’t go unnoticed. I’m a journalist, 
and tomorrow’s paper will have this story on the front page.
So, what do you do for a living, and what political affiliation do you have?"
The biker replies "I’m a U.S. Marine, a Republican and I voted for Trump".
The journalist leaves.

The following morning the biker buys the paper to see if it indeed brings 
news of his actions, and reads, on the front page:

U.S. MARINE ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT & STEALS HIS LUNCH *

And THAT pretty much sums up the media’s approach to the news these days.
