Some people in the liberal media are simply incapable of recognizing anything positive about President Trump.
Even visiting the troops in Afghanistan on Thanksgiving, something which should be praised by all, has been criticized.
On MSNBC, Stephanie Ruhle referred to the visit as a photo-op.

MSNBC’s Ruhle Calls Trump’s Thanksgiving Visit to Afghanistan a ‘Photo-Op’
Surprise presidential visits to war zones to spend time with the troops during Thanksgiving or other holidays have become a bipartisan tradition that everyone can support.
While most view such visits as a way to honor the troops and express amazement at the amount of planning and secrecy that goes into such trips, MSNBC Live host Stephanie Ruhle took Friday to call Trump’s Thanksgiving visit to Afghanistan a “photo-op” and wonder that if he will plan more foreign visits as part of a strategy to counter impeachment.
Ruhle theorized that the trip was about the imagery of the presidency, “The imagery of the president standing there with troops behind him, the President literally, maybe he’s watching, tweeted a bunch of photos from the trip. That’s a big win for him.”
She then asked Washington Post White House correspondent Anne Gearan, “Given the impeachment battle is going on, the president is under attack in all sorts of ways, are we going to see more overseas trips that give him these kind of photo-op scenarios?”

Ruhle wasn’t alone in this sort of negativity.
CNN’s Jake Tapper tweeted this:
CNN: President Donald Trump made an unannounced visit to troops in Afghanistan, the first time he’s visited that nation, where the US has been at war for 18 years.

Tapper got some blow back for that:
Are you seriously complaining a sitting President didn’t visit an active war zone more often? Potentially even during the 15 years before his inauguration? Your Democratic Party editors might get worried about how often LBJ visited Saigon, or FDR on Omaha Beach.

You really are a petty little man. I notice you never said this about Obama.
But I forget, you suffer severe #tds

The way you tweeted this out is something else… If it world Obama visiting you would never have phrased it the same way…. But you can keep lying to yourself that you are an honest and objective journalist
