Trump being held to a higher standard

I have been reading, watching and listening to the news for over 60 years. I have never encountered such one-sided reporting from the media as I have seen since the election of Donald Trump.

The media continues to bring up the $130,000 payment to some porn gal using outside funds. The media coverage given to presidents Kennedy, Johnson and Clinton on their affairs while in office doesn’t come close to coverage given to Trump.

Hey, media, how about printing stories about the $17 million Congress has paid over the years to settle sexual harassment claims? This is taxpayer money to help themselves out of trouble.

How can you have a code of ethics for others and not yourselves? How can you impeach our president for the unfounded use of money when you set up and use taxpayer money to settle out of court sexual harassment claims?

I believe Congress should get their rules of conduct in order before they start to act like they’re above the law.
