On CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 Wednesday, panelist Van Jones claimed that Trump didn’t deserve Obama’s “silence” after he leaves office, because Trump was going to undo every good thing Obama did as President. “Obama came in to fix things that W. broke. Trump is coming in to break things that Obama fixed,” Jones asserted.
Wednesday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, HBO liberal talkshow host Bill Maher came on the show to bash conservatives and call on the media to hold Trump accountable. Without any sense of irony, Maher lectured Kimmel on the need for hosts like him to hold Trump’s “feet to the fire” as if the media gives Trump the adoring Obama treatment. Maher then told Kimmel that the media can’t treat the right the same as the left after this election because one side had gone to “crazytown.”
On Wednesday’s The View, co-host Joy Behar had a meltdown about America’s “democracy” being under threat because there was no longer any “checks and balances” for Donald Trump as President since Republicans were in the majority in both houses of Congress. Behar called the situation “sad and upsetting,” apparently not realizing this type of scenario has happened dozens of times before.
CNN’s Jake Tapper was Seth Meyers’ guest on Monday night’s Late Night, where he talked about Trump’s relationship with the press. More specifically, last week’s press conference, where Trump refused to call on CNN reporter Jim Acosta, calling his outlet “fake news.” Meyers tried to get Tapper to hype up the incident as unique to Trump’s (near) presidency, but Tapper explained that Obama has done the exact same thing.
On Monday’s Good Morning America, ABC used the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday to lecture Trump on his need to improve his “long and fractured” relationship with the black community. It began when Democratic Congressman John Lewis called Trump’s election win “illegitimate” last week and said he would not be attending the inauguration. When Trump fired back on Twitter, the media blew a fuse at Trump for daring to criticize the “civil rights icon.”
Friday’s special guest on ABC’s The View was Vice President Joe Biden. Like ABC does with every Democrat guest, instead of asking critical questions, the panel split half their commentary into praising Biden and the other half into baiting him to slam Republicans. Host Joy Behar was the most frequent instigator though fellow host Whoopi Goldberg tried three times to get Biden to agree that Trump and Pence were not ready to “empathize” with the American people.
Wednesday’s Good Morning America had anchor George Stephanopoulos struggling to regain control of the interview after Trump’s senior advisor Kellyanne Conway called the media out for for their pro-Clinton bias. After repeated attempts to get Conway to answer whether or not Trump accepted that Russia hacked the election, Conway hit back, accusing the media of being the ones who tried to sway the results of the election for Hillary.
If you weren’t paying attention in the past month, you might actually believe that Russian spies infiltrated our voting booths to help Donald Trump win the presidential election. Well, at least that’s the perception the big three news networks are trying to create by repeatedly insisting that Russia “hacked the election.”
After Meryl Streep’s scathing speech condemning President-elect Donald Trump Sunday night, liberals came out in full force to defend the actress and left-wing activist’s “brave” move preaching to the choir. On ABC’s The View Monday morning, actress and host Whoopi Goldberg unsurprisingly came to Streep’s defense as well. While doing so, Goldberg made some absurd claims about which type of politics run Hollywood.
Thursday afternoon on CNN, reporters from several networks surrounded Republican Senator John McCain and attempted to get him to call Donald Trump’s election illegitimate. McCain spoke to the reporters in the hallway immediately following a Senate hearing where Intelligence officials testified about the Russian hacking of the DNC this past Summer. Ever since Clinton lost the election, the media has been desperately trying to pin her loss on Russian influence. While the only thing that has been made evident is that Russia was able to access private DNC e-mails after DNC officials clicked on a phishing e-mail, somehow that means that Russia hacked the U.S. election, at least according to the media.
After a horrific Facebook Live video yesterday showed four black youths torturing a young white disabled man while shouting anti-white and anti-Trump epithets, the media have been slow to report on the story at all. ABC and NBC ignored the story on Wednesday’s evening news broadcasts while CBS simply gave a pithy few lines to it. CNN Tonight did report on the story Wednesday night, but repeatedly cast doubt on the idea that this was a politically and racially motivated hate crime.
Monday, musician Bruce Springsteen expressed his paranoia over the future of an America under Donald Trump on liberal comedian Marc Maron’s podcast. The longtime liberal told Maron that he feared America would become “unrecognizable” because of a rise in hate crimes and other “un-American” activities.
