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?”

Vice President Mike Pence appeared on all three morning network news shows Wednesday, to discuss President Trump’s address to Congress last night. ABC was the harshest on Pence, demanding he respond to Democrat talking points the whole interview, whereas NBC and CBS were less combative with the Vice President.

And now back to our regularly scheduled cultural suicide.
According to The Telegraph, Disney’s new live action Beauty and the Beast “will star a manservant exploring his sexuality.” Super.

While the media do everything but spontaneously combust at the sight of President Trump, they ignore the other party in turmoil. Over eight years, Obama plunged the Democrats deep into a crater, but his media buddies paid no attention, because nothing Democrats do or don’t do bother them.
For weeks now, former Labor Secretary Tom Perez and Rep. Keith Ellison have been campaigning to lead the Democratic National Committee, and for weeks, the networks have ignored it. They would rather spend hours analyzing whether Trump is going to keep disrespecting them. (News flash: he will.)

On a very special Black Lives Matter episode of Freeform’s Switched at Birth, the show switches its focus from its main white and Latino characters to feature the stories of 3 black students at University of Missouri – Kansas City. It's about as preachy, melodramatic, and self-important as you'd expect, but it really strains credulity with an unintentionally comedic lecture on media bias.

Bitter, far-left comedian Stephen Colbert hosted a live Late Show on Tuesday following President Trump’s address to a Joint Session of Congress and panned it during his monologue but later conceded that it was “a perfectly good speech” that honored our troops.

As if sex education in schools wasn’t controversial enough, now gay activists want gay sex to be taught to children. Leading the charge is the FreeForm Channel with its drama The Fosters, a show that has always championed the gay agenda, with its biracial lesbian couple and their diverse family of all colors and sexualities.

Cue the sad trombone, folks. Despite the best efforts by Stephen Colbert, Bill Maher, Rachel Maddow, and other lefties, the “big three” of ABC, CBS, and NBC offered positive reviews of President Trump’s “profoundly different” Tuesday night speech to a Joint Session of Congress that “rested on words, including rebirth, hope, opportunity, and common good.”

Far-left comedian Bill Maher on Tuesday derided war widow Carryn Owens for allowing herself to be Donald Trump’s “prop” in his speech to Congress. Regarding the wife of the Navy SEAL, Maher sneered, “First of all, I wish she hadn't allowed herself to be used as his prop like that. And I don't see any great courage here. Where is the courage?”

From the man who infamously declared, on Election Night 2016, that Donald Trump’s win over Hillary Clinton was “whitelash” to a black president, CNN commentator Van Jones had a vastly different tone Tuesday night. The President’s address to a joint session of Congress was applauded by many for the emotional tone struck while speaking to the wife of slain Navy SEAL Ryan Owens; to which Jones declared “He became President of the United States in that moment. Period.”

The third episode of the second season of TBS’s The Detour, which aired February 28, contained bizarre racial tensions and was just downright disgusting. When main character Nate (Jason Jones) notes the abnormality of a friend, Judith, being 12 months pregnant, she spits back at him, “Straight, white, male doctors. What do they know?” Nate responds, “Same thing as gay, black, women doctors.” While this seems like a weird claim to disagree with, the African-American couple in the group has a disgusted look on their face. Considering Nate is shown as the belligerent loudmouth of the gang, I wonder what point the writers are trying to make.

Fox’s The Mick finally got to the much-anticipated scene of a little boy wearing a dress saying it "breezes on his vagina," and the resulting episode is somehow even worse than the trailer implied, with the poor child having sexuality confusion as a result of being made to act transgender.
