Here we go again…
Get the fainting couches ready because President Donald Trump made another phone call, this time to congratulate Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi after his reelection with about 97% of the vote:

Hack Andrea Mitchell added this snark, because she’s totally an impartial journalist and all:
Do we see a pattern here? https://t.co/1GdQUT6QRy

Yes, we see the pattern. The pattern is President Trump keeps doing the exact same things that President Obama did, yet the the MSM only seems to freak the eff out when it’s Trump. From Reuters:
And actually, what Obama did was worse as he called Sisi after he took power in a coup:
Sisi was sworn in on Sunday, almost a year after toppling elected President Mohamed Mursi, an ouster that Obama resisted calling a coup because it would have prompted Washington to cut off assistance to Egypt.
Maybe Mitchell can address this?
