What Bias?  Headlines Cast FLOTUS As Head Lumberjack In Tree Removal [VIDEO]

The Jackson Magnolia, a tree planted in the early 1800’s by President Andrew Jackson and grew to become a beautiful part of the White House’s landscape, is being removed today. If you read the headlines from certain media outlets, you’d think First Lady Melania Trump is out there cutting the tree down herself with a hatchet and a flamethrower.

Multiple left-leaning news sites wrote some truly awful headlines about the Jackson Magnolia’s removal.

You have to love the picture Newsweek used. I wouldn’t be surprised if they accused her of running a Dalmatian puppy mill for fur coats in the next headline.

The truth is that the tree is being held together with cables and is barely hanging on.

And while it’s always sad to lose something connected with so much history, an offshoot of the same tree will be planted in its place.

However disappointing the removal of the Jackson Magnolia, the silver lining of its demise is that White House groundskeepers were prepared. For several months, at an undisclosed greenhouse-like location nearby, healthy offshoots of the tree have been growing, tended to with care and now somewhere around eight to 10 feet tall. CNN has learned the plan is that another Jackson Magnolia, born directly from the original, will soon be planted in its place, for history to live on.

But it’s just easier for lazy news outlets to blame FLOTUS for giving the order ala the Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland. “Off with its head!”

First Ladies are traditionally the ones who make final decisions about landscaping, which means that Melania did indeed have to sign off of the tree’s removal – but did so after a report from the United States National Arboretum stating that the tree was no longer salvageable. And Chelsea Clinton even thanked Melania for her efforts.

Some media outlets did write better headlines.

But they still have Melania Trump issues.

Get a hobby, media, and hire better editors to write your headlines.

    Yes, the Trumps need to get a Dalmatian puppy for the WH dog. The heads exploding would be grand!

    Funny, how the progs want to tear down the inanimate objects that will conceivably last forever, but want to preserve forever the living thing that is guaranteed to die sometime. These people really do have trouble with reality.

  • Wyldkat says:

    Thank you. I knew there had to be more than what I was hearing. This confirms what I suspect – the tree is no longer healthy.

    Crying shame when ever my local Fox station give us the “Melania Trump orders removal of historic tree” headlines. Any wonder I only tune in for the weather and market report/business news.

    Another Democrat Party legacy to remove. Jackson was a slave owner. Thus, his racist statures must be pulled down and his racist trees must be cut down.

    I can’t wait to see Melania in Hi-Heels and designer skirt, blouse, scarf and sun glasses, using the chainsaw attachment to her M-16 taking down The White Paternalistic Privilege Magnolia, and singing Burn, Barry, Burn as she uses the flamethrower attachment to light it up.

    200 yrs is a grand old age for a tree, I’d guess 120 to 150 is typical lifespan. Once you start having cables and such holding a tree together, it’s not lasting much longer. The experts at the National Arboretum know what they’re talking about.
    “…Several months, 8 to 10 ft tall…” probably a little more than several months to reach that height so everyone knew the day was coming.

  • Christopher B says:

    mer – that does sound improbable but admitting this plan has been in the works since the Prior Occupant resided in the WH would harsh the narrative.

  • Bandit says:

    This is the reaction from people who are consumed with hatred. I feel bad for them on an individual but not collective level.

  • thesepeoplesmh says:

    Surely in the shriveled little fungi that pass for their hearts they must know that nobody even believes them at all any more. When I saw that headline I had complete conviction that it was some type of lie. I can’t be the only one.

  • GTB says:

    Well, she really didn’t want to be First Lady. You know what she really wanted to be? A LUMBERJACK.! That right!

    Leaping from tree to tree! As they float down the mighty rivers of British Columbia! With my best girl by my side! The Larch! The Pine! The Giant Redwood tree! The Sequoia! The Little Whopping Rule Tree! We’d sing! Sing! Sing! Oh, I’m a lumberjack, and I’m okay, I sleep all night and I work all day.,..
