CNN’s Brian Stelter took his anti-Donald Trump bias to new heights Sunday during his show “Reliable Souses,” where he argued that the media had to start referring to the president-elect as an authoritarian. “I talk to international correspondents who say to you, ‘This is exactly what authoritarians do. This is what strongmen do. This is what happens in authoritarian regimes,’” he claimed, “I think we need to start using those words on TV, at least, to discuss the possibilities before us.”

The remarkable -- make that astounding -- presidential election of 2016 is over.  Of the many “notables” and tradition-breaking moments, one has been the superb use of Twitter by President-elect Donald Trump that drove the media crazy.  He was at it again over the weekend, this time messaging his thoughts on companies that depart the US for abroad, taking American jobs with them. 

The fact that Trump turned Twitter and tweeting into such a deadly 21st century political weapon in his successful campaign -- a campaign that right up until election night most media savants were insisting he would lose -- has stuck in the media’s craw.

Vice President-Elect Mike Pence appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday to discuss Donald Trump’s fast approaching presidency. What he got, at one point, was moderator Chuck Todd grilling him on why Trump couldn’t save some 700 jobs Carrier still sent to Mexico. “You gave a tax break -- some people could say you gave a tax break to Carrier so that they would only send 700 jobs overseas,” he told Pence.

President-Elect Donald Trump’s latest batch of cabinet nominations is drawing fire from liberal media elites with smears like “The wealthiest cabinet in history.” But the frustration over the nominees’ financial success is made humorous when it’s other super wealthy people throwing the fit, such as Al Sharpton during MSNBC’s PoliticsNation on Sunday. “I mean, how concerned… should Democrats be about the fact that all of these multi-corporate connected Wall Street millionaires guys,” he wondered.

CNN apologized for a producer who made a distasteful joke about Donald Trump's plane crashing. No one should expect The Washington Post will apologize for their Sunday magazine "humorist" Gene Weingarten writing poetry about the delight of dropping Trump out of an airplane to his death.

Then Hillary Clinton stood up, and she smiled, too.

“You know, I’ve a far, far better idea for you!

Throw no cash. Throw out just one Donald Trump

And bring joy to a hundred million people, chump.”

Presidential visits to wounded soldiers at Walter Reed should be non-political events worthy of non-partisan coverage, but the New York Times manages to shows its colors even in those solemn moments. In the half-page “Obama’s Sacred Duty: Visiting the Wounded -- Trips to Walter Reed Take Toll and Inspire," reporter Gardiner Harris brought a somber, emotional, personalized tone to the proceedings. But visits by George W. Bush were greeted with terse headlines and criticism.

One of the popular pages on the Washington Post website this weekend is the placement of "gay pride" rainbow flags on the homes of people around Vice President-Elect Mike Pence's rental home in the Maryland suburb of Chevy Chase. The headline was "In Mr. Pence’s new D.C. neighborhood, not exactly the welcome wagon."

Reporter Ian Shapira -- last memorably seen reporting fake news about Miley Cyrus "spontaneously" campaigning for Hillary on campus -- wisecracked the liberal protest meant "It was time to Make Chevy Chase Great Again."

Actor Mark Wahlberg (or “Marky Mark” as some of us remember him during his music days) was at a presser for his new movie Patriots Day when he made the comments to Task & Purpose – a news outlet whose audience is primarily American service veterans.  When asked about the parade of celebrities that have come out to denounce President-elect Donald Trump, Wahlberg said he believed most of Hollywood lives in a bubble and out of touch with most of Americans:

On Friday night’s episode of ABC’s Last Man Standing, Mike Baxter (Tim Allen) has met the enemy of free speech on college campuses, thanks to liberal professors, and that enemy is known as "micro-aggressions." Micro-aggressions are the words no longer allowed on campus because they may offend someone. Today’s special snowflake college students evidently will melt into a puddle if faced with an alternate opinion than what is spoon-fed to them by professors with liberal, politically correct agendas.

TheRoot.com's Jason Johnson unleashed on Donald Trump on Friday's CNN Newsroom, after the President-Elect called for unity at his Thursday rally in Ohio: "I don't believe anything that Donald Trump says about unity. I can see that from the administration that he's picked. I can see that from the policies he's proposed." Johnson targeted the billionaire for an apparent lack of women and "people of color" in his Cabinet. The guest also blasted his senior advisor, Steve Bannon: "He has a website that terrorists – white nationalist terrorists – consider to be their home base; consider to be their personal bible."

Appearing as a guest on Saturday's CNN Newsroom, CNN senior media analyst Brian Stelter fretted that Donald Trump's has a history of tweeting articles from "made-up websites," and then seemed to lump in "far-right-wing" Breitbart News with his idea of "made-up websites." Stelter, who a few weeks ago included images of two NewsBusters articles without explanation in a report about "fake news," began today's segment with a reference to George Orwell as he defined "fake news" as "sites that are trying to trick you." Stelter:

Notoriously atheist and leftist Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane took to Twitter on Friday to explain why so many celebrities loathe Donald Trump. He claimed Trump reminds Tinseltown folk of slimy deal makers, as if Trump is an elitist who rigs the system, and Seth MacFarlane and his Hollywood pals are red-blooded lovers of America.

“Wanna know why Hollywood folks hate Trump? We live and work amongst his kind every day out here. His tactics are those employed by the shiftiest of agents, lawyers and publicists," MacFarlane wrote.

Did you know that some Donald Trump supporters actively advocated for repealing the 19th Amendment which gave women the right to vote almost a century ago? Or that Hillary Clinton, who memorably characterized half of Trump's supporters as "a basket of deplorables ... racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it," really "went high" as "her opponent went even lower" during the presidential campaign?

By now, many people know that Newsweek, which prepared alternative "Madam President" and "President Trump" editions for its post-presidential election issue, accidentally sent 125,000 copies of the "Madam President" edition to newsstands on Election Night. But that's not the real news here. What is far less known, and far more disturbing, is that the pulled "Madam President" edition includes the outrageous contentions just cited, as well as others which will be seen shortly.

A really really angry Sally Field announced on Chelsea Handler's Netflix show on Thursday that she joined Twitter in order to understand why people voted for Donald Trump. As you can see in Chelsea's tweet video below, Field is not only clueless as to why Trump won the election but has no real understanding of how our federal constitution works.

Appearing as a guest on Thursday's The Daily Show on Comedy Central, liberal comedian Chelsea Handler slammed women who refused to vote for Hillary Clinton as she declared that "there's something wrong with you," and cracked that women need to "get rid of" their husbands because they are "listening to their husbands too much." She also complained that women should have supported Clinton "whether you f****** like her or not."
