Ric Grenell Swoops in With a Sweet Dunk After Media Tries to Erase Him From the Trump Administration

If there’s one thing the mainstream media loves doing almost as much as they do shilling for Democrats and their pet causes it’s pointing out supposedly historic “firsts” in U.S. politics.

With every election cycle comes the breathless stories about how so and so could be the “first woman with 7 degrees and a 4-car garage” to be elected to serve as county commissioner, or how another person has become the “first bixsexual man with two dogs” to win a city council seat in Podunk City, USA.

So when failed 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg was confirmed Tuesday as Joe Biden’s Transportation Secretary, the media rushed to tweet on how the former South Bend, Indiana mayor was the “first openly gay cabinet member” of a presidential administration in history.

This was how CBS News covered the story:

Here’s White House comms guy Matt Hill passing along the fake news as well:

The problem, of course, is that Mayor Pete is not the first “openly gay” cabinet member in a presidential administration. That distinction goes to former acting DNI Richard Grenell, which NBC News noted in corrected tweet:

Not to be outdone, Grenell himself took to the Twitter machine to correct the record as only he could:

The problem here is not so much the fact that the media overlooked Grenell but the fact that they are quick to ignore firsts when those “firsts in history” come from Republicans. The media, like Democrats, treats female Republicans, gay Republicans, and other minority Republicans as if they are inauthentic representations of their respective particular group and thusly don’t count because they don’t toe the liberal line.

Good on Grenell for handling the media’s slight in a classy way, but the media really needs to take to heart the message from former First Lady Melania Trump on how to “be best. Because when it comes to reporting accurately on ground-breaking firsts, their willful ignorance of the accomplishments of Republicans leaves a helluva lot to be desired. Not only that, but it also opens media outlets up to more criticism that their supposed commitment to respecting a diversity of viewpoints is nothing but hot air.
