(Editor’s note: The curious Eds. did a Google search for “Obama bombs 2016” and found numerous stories on the large number of bombings and drone strikes President Obama ordered in the Middle East.

Last week, President Trump deployed the largest non-nuclear bomb ever used in combat. The Eds. certainly think it was a newsworthy event, as were Obama’s bombings in the Middle East -- covered routinely by the “liberal press.”)
