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."

The Media Research Center’s Rich Noyes appeared on the Fox Business Network, Friday, to blast a journalistic double standard on Donald Trump’s “wealthy” cabinet. Responding to the Washington Post's whining about net worth, the MRC research director highlighted, “President-elect Trump is picking people with actual success. They're not wealthy by chance. They are wealthy because they're successful. You think he would want to bring that kind of success and track record into government. But the media are rebelling against it.”

Appearing as a panel member on Thursday's Anderson Cooper 360, during a discussion of Muslim-Americans "self-radicalizing' and becoming terrorists, liberal CNN political commentator Van Jones at one point blamed Donald Trump for allegedly causing some to "self-radicalize." As conservative CNN political commentator Jack Kingston argued in favor of studies to help answer the question of why "lone wolf" terrorists "became radical," Jones jumped in to inject: "When people say stuff like Trump. Trump kind of helps make people radical, but go ahead."

Liberals in the press have spent weeks trashing “fake news” purveyors -- which is to say, those in the press who are not liberals -- while continuing to bow deeply to the fake news-makers at “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central.  Jon Stewart and New York magazine writer Chris Smith have written a new book called “An Oral History of The Daily Show," and they're the toast of Leftyville.

CBS host Charlie Rose set the adoring tone for Stewart: "[I]t became, for all of us, a, kind of, cultural event — more than a show." Rose later added, "There was nothing quite like him. A lot of people did it very well....But Jon had a special place." It’s annoying how liberals speak “for all of us.”

In her 2003 book, Useful Idiots: How Liberals Got it Wrong in the Cold War and Still Blame America First, conservative writer Mona Charen offered an excellent juxtaposition of the horrors of the island prison Fidel Castro established with the fawning treatment he received from American journalists. Written after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the opening of the archives of the once totalitarian Eastern Bloc, Charen’s book establishes the foolish and naive thinking that Western liberals — including many journalists — employed in their attempt to sugarcoat the realities of communism, including in Cuba.

On the Friday edition of his Fox News show Tucker Carlson Tonight, the host interviewed New York Times Liz Spayd and challenged her on the anti-Trump bias of the paper. Spayd, the paper’s recently appointed ombudsman took her criticism of the Times’ journalism to what many of her colleagues see as enemy territory. She criticized the irresponsible tweets of some of the paper’s supposedly objective political reporters (“It’s outrageous”) and revealed whose opinion truly concerns the Times brass -- the good opinion of liberals: “....I think there’s a lot of angst and concern at Big Media organizations about whethere we’re going to get blamed by the left by, you know, the half of America that did not vote for Trump, for putting Trump in office."

To start off ABC’s The View show December 2, the ladies actually discussed whether or not Trump’s election win was causing a phenomenon of wives spurning their husbands in the bedroom. Calling it the ‘Trump Bedroom Backlash’ Behar asked, “Is Trump causing ‘electile dysfunction?’” before the panel erupted in giggles but also agreement.
