Can Anyone Say “Double Standard?”
On May 19, 1962, at a fundraiser and early birthday celebration for President John F. Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe shimmied onto the Madison Square Garden stage, shrugged off her glamorous fur coat to reveal a skin-tight, rhinestone-encrusted gown, and stepped up to the microphone.

“Happy Birthday Mr. President”
“Happy Birthday, Mr. President,” she famously crooned in her signature sultry, yet strangely childlike voice. “Happy Birthday to you.”
According to Hannity.com:
CNN found itself in hot-water this week after bizarrely celebrating President John F. Kennedy’s “legendary love life” on social media; prompting a fierce backlash over the network’s hypocritical, non-stop coverage of President Trump’s alleged affair with an adult actress for nearly two weeks.
“While promoting ‘The Kennedys,’ CNN hailed the 35th president’s ‘legendary love life,’ before asking, ‘Did one of his affairs connect him with the mob?’ The tweet featured video detailing JFK’s relationship with actress Judy Campbell, who was allegedly intimate with the head of the Chicago mafia while also having an affair with the president,” writes Fox News.”

The network’s comments came under fire from both sides of the political aisle on social media Monday, with one user writing “hypocrisy at its finest.”
“CNN’s warped obsession with reporting about supposed adultery demonstrates a larger problem at the once-proud and groundbreaking channel,” said an op-ed in the Hill.”
