“Trump Names Richard Grenell as Acting Head of Intelligence,” said the New York Times.
The once-great newspaper had nothing good to say about Grenell in its fiercely biased piece.
President Trump on Wednesday named Richard Grenell, the ambassador to Germany who quickly antagonized the establishment after arriving in Berlin in 2018, to be the acting director of national intelligence overseeing the nation’s 17 spy agencies.
By choosing Mr. Grenell, who has little experience in intelligence or in running a large bureaucracy, the president signaled that he wants a trusted, aggressive leader atop an intelligence community that he has long viewed with suspicion and at times gone to war against.
Way down in the ninth paragraph, The Times wrote this: “Mr. Grenell, who has pushed to advance gay rights in his current post, is also thought to be the first openly gay cabinet member.”
“Thought to be”? Doesn’t the New York Times have any reporters anymore?
Grenell is the first openly gay Cabinet member, period. Fact. And not even a hard fact to confirm.
The Washington Post also buried the historic news, and then didn’t even get it right. “Grenell would be the first openly gay member of the Trump Cabinet.” Uh, that would make him the first openly gay member of ANY Cabinet.
But Log Cabin Republicans, the nation’s largest Republican organization dedicated to representing LGBT conservatives and allies, was pleased with the appointment, noting its significance.
“We’re excited that @realDonaldTrump has appointed the first openly gay presidential cabinet member. @RichardGrenell is totally qualified and we’re exciting that he’ll be making history,” the group wrote on Twitter.

Just imagine the MSM’s swoon if The Chosen One, Barack Obama, had appointed the first openly gay Cabinet member.
But he didn’t. Trump did.
