Hugh Hewitt Tried Defending Trump By Saying ‘It’s Ordinary’ For Presidents To Gloat On Memorial Day

MSNBC contributor Hugh Hewitt tried defending Donald Trump on Monday after the president took to Twitter to gloat about his “accomplishments” on Memorial Day.

According to the conservative, it’s “ordinary and a routine” for the president to tweet their accomplishments on Memorial Day.

Trump tweeted on Monday:

“Happy Memorial Day! Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today. Best economy in decades, lowest unemployment numbers for Blacks and Hispanics EVER (& women in 18years), rebuilding our Military and so much more. Nice!”

Trump received a lot of criticism for gloating about himself on Memorial Day, but Hewitt claimed it was perfectly normal for Trump to do so.

“The president tweets all the time,” Hewitt opined. “I spent three hours with injured Marines in the Semper Fi Fund this morning. But I’m also tweeting about Cavaliers basketball… I think it is ordinary and routine for almost everyone to tweet about Memorial Day and how we honor the fallen, but also to tweet about other things.”

“I’m not going to escalate into anti-Trump rhetoric over this,” he added. “It is kind of common for him.”

Hewitt went on to claim that the media makes up stories about Trump in order to make him look bad.

“As opposed to, for example, finding something to compliment him about,” the conservative radio host said. “And I don’t think this tweet makes a lick of difference in anyone’s opinion of Donald Trump today. Nor will anything because it’s all baked in. He has successfully defined us in the media as his enemy and every time his base hears an anti-Trump story, they say, ‘Well, there they go again.’”
