The media and Democrat Party have been apoplectic over the firing of 46 Obama-Era prosecutors by President Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions. But where was the outrage the day Bill Clinton had 93 of 94 US States Attorneys fired? There wasn’t any outrage, because the media treated it as though it was business as usual.

Even today, after the media was called out on ignoring Clinton’s firings, the New York Times tried to prove that Trump’s firings were somehow more mean-spirited:
Although it was not clear whether all were given the same instructions, that United States attorney was not the only one told to clear out by the close of business. The abrupt nature of the dismissals distinguished Mr. Trump’s mass firing from Mr. Clinton’s, because the prosecutors in 1993 were not summarily told to clear out their offices.
They even went as far as to suggest President Trump was simply taking marching orders from TV and radio talk show host Sean Hannity when he had them fired:
But the calls from the acting deputy attorney general arose a day after Sean Hannity, the Fox News commentator who is a strong supporter of President Trump, said on his evening show that Mr. Trump needed to “purge” Obama holdovers from the federal government. Mr. Hannity portrayed them as “saboteurs” from the “deep state” who were leaking secrets to hurt Mr. Trump.
