On the May 26th episode of Netflix’s Chelsea titled “Beauty Pageants, Black-ish and Going Broke”, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) declared, “Democracy is on the ropes.” The rest of the interview was just as dramatically nonsensical.

Good news! President Donald Trump is making yoga great again!!!

This news comes to us by way of the May 29 USA Today in which Paul Singer reports that the election of Donald Trump has driven many liberals to take up yoga as a means of escape or to energize themselves for the "resistance" ahead. So perhaps those opposed to Trump will discard their basic black Antifa wannabee ninja outfits for yoga pants instead as we learn that Since election, yoga rises off the mat to take on Donald Trump.

The Root politics editor Jason Johnson has been making regular appearances as a guest on both CNN and MSNBC for the past few years to give liberal political commentary, but now he appears to have tied the knot of sorts with MSNBC as he has just recently attained the status of "contributor." Just in the last couple of years, the race-obsessed Johnson has been known for repeatedly tying Republicans to the KKK and linking Steve Bannon to "terrorist groups"; and he even provocatively quoted a source recently who called the mayor of St. Louis a "f***ing white woman" to bolster an article in which he whined about a white Democrat being elected in the black-majority city. He similarly griped about the "white-splaining, cop-coddling" white Democratic mayor of black-majority Ferguson, Missouri, recently winning reelection.

On Saturday morning's Weekend Edition, in the wake of the despicable bombing of the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, NPR host Scott Simon welcomed staunch atheist Richard Dawkins, author of (most notably) The God Delusion, to discuss the role of "religion" in terrorism. Simon tiptoed around singling out one particular religion as the most prone to terrorism in this century.

If you can’t say something nice....by tradition, newspaper obituaries hold back criticism in the name of respect for the deceased and their grieving admirers, with even political figures granted reverence. But often conservatives are the exception, with outlets like the New York Times granting themselves free reign to criticize. Sunday obit of Hall of Fame pitcher and conservative Kentucky Sen. Jim Bunning, written by Richard Goldstein, shows the differing standards by which liberal and conservative politicians are held, even in death. It started with the headline: “Jim Bunning, Hall of Fame Pitcher Turned Cantankerous Senator, Dies at 85.”

It’s not just the press that are freaked out by Donald Trump. Talk show hosts and celebrities from Stephen Colbert to Robert DeNiro, Katy Perry and Rosie O’Donnell are losing their minds over the new president: DeNiro claimed Trump was worse than con-man Bernie Madoff: “He’s a pig”; Perry claimed Trump’s election brought “a lot of trauma for me; Colbert infamously characterized Trump’s relationship with Vladimir Putin in the most obscene terms; and O’Donnell sounded like she was fomenting a revolution: “We have never had this kind of treasonous madness in power before. Desperate times - desperate measures.” The following are just some of the worst celebrity freak-outs from the past few months.

As previously demonstrated in this space, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC are relentless in attacking conservatives, Christians, and President Trump. Here’s the thing: It’s not just in their morning and evening newscasts, but also their primetime scripted programs.

In an attempt to build up its already "We'll never really know why they did it" file relating to Islamist radicals who have taken innocent lives, three reporters at The New York Times composed a 1,900-word report Saturday evening (for Sunday's print edition) about Manchester bomber Salman Abedi's family background. The reporters provided very little hard information about Abedi's motivations, despite the fact that readers who saw the paper's tweet which promoted the article were led to expect it: "What led Salman Abedi to bomb the Manchester arena?" But they did push hard the news that Abedi called his mom before he carried the attack.

On Saturday's New Day on CNN, after reporting on the murders of two men in Portland who defended two women from being verbally harassed with anti-Muslim rantings, Ibrahim Hooper of the Council on American-Islamic Relations was given an unchallenged forum to blame President Donald Trump for the violence. No room was made for any conservative voices who might have pointed out that anti-Muslim bigotry is inspired primarily by extremists like ISIS and al-Qaeda who have committed terrorism and claimed to do so in the name of Islam.

On CBS This Morning Saturday, as the show covered proposed new laws to protect police officers from hate crimes, correspondent Tony Dokoupil and anchors Alex Wagner and Anthony Mason all oddly seemed to worry about whether it was appropriate to call it a "hate crime" to attack a police officer. During the report, Dokoupil even asked if the term "hate crime" would be "cheapened" if police offers came under hate crime protection. And in a short discussion after the pre-recorded piece concluded, after Wagner mused, "It really calls into question the definition of 'hate crime' and bigotry," Dokoupil injected: "It can be a hateful act, and yet not a hate crime."

Muslim “feminist” Linda Sarsour has gotten criticism from conservatives for her vulgar, sexist, intolerant remarks about Muslim apostate Ayaan Hirsi Ali (still the target of death threats), as well as her blandished descriptions of Sharia law and public appearances with convicted terrorists. Eli Rosenberg profiled her before her controversial commencement address at the City University of New York, slated for June 1. The Times went all out to make her a martyr: “A Graduation Speaker Raises Ire Before Taking the Podium -- Threats and Messages of Hatred Flow As Sarsour Plans to Speak at CUNY." The caption under a flattering photo of Sarsour: “Linda Sarsour said she became a target of far-right conservatives after the Women’s March. ‘I’m everything they stand against,’ she said.”

“Between Donald Trump and anything resembling Christianity,” there is only a great void -- a “vast, empty, and dark space,” declared gay Catholic pundit Sullivan in a Friday column for New York magazine. Sullivan described Trump as “neither religious nor irreligious. He is pre-religious. He is a pagan. He makes much more sense as a character in Game of Thrones, a medieval world bereft of the legacy of Jesus of Nazareth, than as a president of a modern, Western country...I will never understand how more than half of white Catholics could vote for such a man, or how the leadership of the church could be so terribly silent when such a monster stalks the earth.”

The liberal network shows were all busy Sunday morning pushing accusations and speculation about President Trump and his adviser Jared Kushner. Their discussion was drive by more anonymous sources telling The Washington Post that Kushner tried to set up a backchannel discussion between Trump and the Russians to talk about Syria. CNN even accused the action of being “treasonous.” The hysteria was also present on NBC’s Meet the Press, but theirs was shattered by The Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel after she introduced facts to the discussion.
