CBS appeared to be short on negative stuff to complain about with President Donald Trump’s address to Congress, so during Wednesday’s CBS Evening News they whined that he didn’t talk about US foreign policy. “As poignant as his salute the Ryan Owens was, Mr. Trump did not mention other Americans fighting overseas, nor very much about foreign policy at all,” announced anchor Scott Pelley before handing it over to reporter Margaret Brennan.

Early Wednesday morning, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon descended into the gutter by suggesting that President Donald Trump had no role in writing his speech to Congress because it sounded as though it was “written by a college student for someone else trying to use big words” Trump wasn’t smart enough to understand. Of course, as some might remember, this is the same CNN program that the President called out during his marathon February 16 press conference as being devoutly anti-Trump.

Just as they didn’t seem to mind Dakota Access Pipeline protesters’ arson, rioting and violence, the network news media failed to condemn the hypocrisy of self-proclaimed “water protectors” leaving behind mountains of trash now threatening to pollute the Missouri River.
The last people protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline were evicted after North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum ordered everyone to leave over safety and environmental concerns due to all that debris.

While most Catholic folks will have a dull gray mark smudged on their foreheads today, some will proudly sport a bit of purple sparkle. Today is Ash Wednesday—the beginning of Lent and a day when Catholics and some Protestant denominations practice penitence. But thanks to the progressive organization Parity, some church leaders are choosing to work with “glitter ash” in support of the LGBT community.

More than 300 scientists, engineers and meteorologists, led by MIT Meteorology professor Dr. Richard Lindzen, signed a petition asking President Trump to “withdraw from the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)” on Feb. 23, 2017. But ABC, CBS and NBC morning and evening news shows never once mentioned the letter between Feb. 23 and March 1.

On Wednesday’s Morning Joe, Vice President Mike Pence appeared and was forced to answer if Donald Trump has a heart. Author and journalist Mark Halperin wondered, “There’s a lot of skepticism in parts of America that he has a heart at all, let alone let alone a big one.”

Wednesday on ABC’s The View the panel blasted Trump for honoring the widow of a fallen Navy SEAL at last night’s address before Congress. Host Sunny Hostin had the harshest take, calling the move “exploitative,” even blaming Trump for the veteran’s death.

In a contentious interview with Republican Congressman Michael McCaul on her MSNBC show on Wednesday, anchor Andrea Mitchell accused President Trump of “fearmongering” during his address to Congress Tuesday night. His supposed offense? Proposing the creation of a government office to aide the victims of criminal illegal aliens.

The far-left celebrity circus came out in full force on a special post-speech edition of Hardball, Tuesday. As if Bill Maher mocking a war widow as a “prop” wasn’t enough, liberal comic Kathy Griffin and director Rob Reiner both hyped impeachment conspiracy theories. Griffin speculated, “I feel like this whole crowd, they are truly going to go down.”

The Anti-Trump resistance has gotten a magic makeover. Last weekend, a group of witches assembled their tarot cards, Trump photos and orange candle stubs and cast a “binding spell” over the president. After a long incantation, many concluded with “so mote it be,” while others simply said “you’re fired!”

Bill Nye the Science Guy loves to go around promoting climate change but seemingly can’t answer basic questions about the theory. When hard-pressed, the result is highly entertaining. Appearing on Fox News’s Tucker Carlson Tonight on Feb. 27, former stand-up comedian Bill Nye repeatedly failed to answer a specific climate change question from host Tucker Carlson. Carlson conceded that “most people are open to the idea that the climate is changing” but asked Nye “to what degree is human activity causing it?” Nye chose to ignore the question and smugly stated that “it’s a settled question. Human activity is causing climate change.”

The New York Times’ inevitable “fact check” of President Trump’s first address to Congress at least dropped the phony three-color precision of the presidential debates, but still was lame and pedantic, with rushes to provide “context” and a plethora of “True, but...” formulations. A few examples follow of Trump's claims last nights, plus the paper's slanted verdict, both parts in italics. The paper is so in favor of illegal immigrants that it even went after the Democratic response from the left, and in emotional terms unusual for a fact-check: "Unless the current immigration laws are changed, enforcing them fully would tear those families apart."

It’s OK when the feminist media say it, but not when Kellyanne Conway says it: today’s feminism stands for abortion. On Friday, MSNBC correspondent Ari Melber, filling in for Lawrence O’Donnell on The Last Word, invited panelists to discuss (or, rather, attack) Conway for her recent comments on feminism. All three – CBS News Sunday Morning contributor Nancy Giles, Fordham University associate professor Christina Greer and Daily Beast senior editor Erin Gloria Ryan – criticized Conway for linking feminism with abortion.

On Wednesday’s NBC Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie began an interview with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer by suggesting that President Trump’s performance during Tuesday night’s address to Congress was all an act: “Before we get to the substance of the speech, and we will, let's talk about this decisive change in the President's tone. To borrow another political phrase, is this a kinder, gentler Donald Trump and do you buy it?”

On Wednesday's New Day on CNN, host Chris Cuomo wrongly suggested that illegal immigrants commit crime at a rate lower than American citizens as he repeated the recurring myth from the left while debating Wisconsin Republican Senator Ron Johnson. As the two discussed President Donald Trump's address to Congress from last night, the CNN host posed: "Immigration was a big theme last night. The fact basis of the President: I want your take on it. 'Lawless chaos.' You know, Senator, that immigrants in this country -- even illegal ones, undocumented ones -- do not commit crimes at the rate that the rest of the citizenry do. 'Lawless chaos.' Fair appraisal?"
