Comedian Roy Wood Jr. slammed the media Saturday night during the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner for the difference in how it reported on the classified document scandals of former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden.
“I don’t know about you all but for me the easiest scandal to follow was the Trump documents scandal that was the one that was easy to follow,” Wood Jr. said. “It was simple, is some stuff that’s supposed to be in the White House that ain’t. In the media, you all did y’alls job. You all jumped on that story. As soon as the Trump document story broke, everybody was down at Mar-a-Lago. ‘We’re reporting live from the documents and we’re going to find them!'”
“And then we found out Joe Biden had documents too and it was like ‘oh, it’s not a big deal,'” he continued. “It’s not a big deal. Everybody got documents, everybody got documents, oh, look at Chinese spy balloon would you look at that. Well done media. Happy to be here. Very happy to be here.”
An actual anti-media liberal bias zing from @roywoodjr: “As soon as the Trump document story broke, everybody was down at Mar-a-Lago reporting live…And then we found out Joe Biden had documents, too, and it was like ‘it’s not a big deal.’” #WHCD pic.twitter.com/Wl0C2Vjx61

Wood went on to mock Biden again over his age and some of the other scandals that he has faced.
“We have an 80-year-old man begging us for four more years of work, begging, begging. Let me finish the job. That’s not a campaign slogan. That’s a plea,” Wood said.
“You’ve had quite a few scandals,” he continued. “You know, we know about the documents, we know about the laptops, but there’s been no scandal more damaging than the scandal of is Joe Biden awake?”
