NBC News: Trump Not Shortest-Serving President

NBC News is a disgrace.

Look at this headline:

President Trump Officially Won’t Be the Shortest-Serving U.S. President

Did the Leftist news outlet note this "milestone" when Obama was in office?

Of course not.

From Chelsea Bailey, NBC News:
This Presidents Day, as thousands prepare to swarm the streets for anti-administration rallies, President Donald Trump has reached his 32nd day in office, and will soon surpass the record for the shortest term in the Oval Office.

That unfortunate honor rests with William Henry Harrison, the ninth president of the United States, who died from pneumonia just 32 days into his presidency, on April 4, 1841.

This isn't fake news but it certainly is offensive and biased news.

The suggestion is that NBC News was wishing for Trump's early demise. He has lasted longer than Harrison. Too bad.

Here's more presidential record information, from NBC:
At the time the 65-year-old Harrison was our country's oldest president. Trump, elected at 70, now holds that title.

Bailey also cites the assassination of James Garfield.

James Garfield, who was assassinated after only 7 months in office in 1881, is the second-shortest-serving president.

We didn't have this sort of monitoring and counting days with Obama, measuring his presidential tenure by death benchmarks of previous presidents.

As reported by Curtis Houck, this is tasteless.

The Leftist media need to get a grip.

They are treating Trump like an enemy. He's been in office for just over one month.

And they wonder why Trump calls them out?

It's official. Trump is not the shortest-serving president and NBC News is awful.
