By The Daily Wire. On Sunday, former-President Bill Clinton appeared with author James Patterson on “CBS Sunday Morning” to promote their new book, “The President is Missing,” which will hit shelves on Monday. During the segment, correspondent Mo Rocca asked Clinton if he believed that the press treated Obama with more reverence than Trump, and if so, why?
ROCCA: You hear from Trump supporters who say, “You know, the press slobbered all over President Obama. He could do no wrong. And now this guy can do no right. What gives?” That there’s a kind of whiplash.
CLINTON: Well, they did treat him differently than other Democrats and Republicans because they –
CLINTON: It was the political press. You know, I don’t know. They liked him, and they liked having the first African American president – and he was a good president, I think.

Bill Clinton Says Impeachment Hearings Would Have Begun Already If a Democrat Were President
By Fox News. Former President Bill Clinton argued Sunday that impeachment hearings would already be in full swing if a Democrat were in the Oval Office and if the special counsel’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election were as deep as it is now.
“I think if the roles were reversed — now, this is me just talking, but it’s based on my experience — if it were a Democratic president, and these facts were present, most people I know in Washington believe impeachment hearings would have begun already,” Clinton told “CBS Sunday Morning.”
Clinton, who appeared alongside James Patterson to promote the political thriller “The President is Missing” that the two penned together, noted that these are “serious issues” that the country is facing.
So far, the special counsel’s investigation, which is headed up by former FBI director Robert Mueller, has charged 19 people – including three former campaign aides of President Trump – along with three companies, and has received five guilty pleas. Perhaps the most high-profile of those guilty pleas came from Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
