Well, TBS’s The Detour is at it again. The April 18th episode, “The Trip,” continued the show’s utter contempt for anything to do with Christianity or Christian values. With other issues, the show has done a hit and run, keeping the mockery to one episode and then moving on to other targets.

In an absolutely shocking tweet late Tuesday afternoon, MSNBC’s Counter Terrorism Analyst Malcolm Nance stepped up and suggested that ISIS bomb a Trump property. “This is my nominee for first ISIS suicide bombing of a Trump property,” he tweeted in response to another one asserting that President Trump congratulated Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s election win for corrupt reasons tied to his tower.

If there is another explanation for what was a stunning exchange between the anchors at the close of Noticiero Univision earlier this week, I'd like to hear it. On April 17, viewers saw an exchange between Jorge Ramos and María Elena Salinas so fundamentally devoid of situational self-awareness that there is no other rational takeaway than an institutional assumption of staggering viewer stupidity.

Leftist protesters around the country used the annual tax deadline on April 15 as an occasion to hold rallies demanding the release of President Trump’s tax returns. They could use large inflatable chickens and signs with hammers and sickles saying “Show us your rubles,” and no journalist would be offended.
Knowing the president, this will have all the effectiveness of national rallies that demand we get transcripts of Hillary Clinton’s six-figure speeches. It’s unlikely.

With the polls getting ready to close in Georgia’s 6th congressional district, ABC and NBC flaunted their admiration for the young Democrat Jon Ossoff Tuesday evening. “Tonight, the eyes of the political world are on a congressional district in Georgia where an upstart Democrat is trying to win a special election in what has been a Republican-held district for years,” announced Anchor Lester Holt during NBC Nightly News, “Democrats hoping to ride anti-Trump sentiment to victory.”

Once again, CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King has demonstrated her networking skills. As the media reported how the Obamas rode Hollywood producer David Geffen’s super-yacht in Tahiti with bold-faced names including Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hanks, and Bruce Springsteen, there was another TV name in the mix from CBS.

MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews is notorious for saying stupid things, but salty language is not usually associated with him. While trashing President Trump and his criticism of President Obama, Matthews whined to his panelists that all Trump does is “bitch, bitch.”

On last week’s episode of FX’s The Americans, mom “Elizabeth,” a KGB operative in the U.S. in the mid ‘80s, catches teen daughter “Paige” reading Karl Marx’s Capital: Critique of Political Economy. “Elizabeth” espouses how Marx wrote about “the capitalist class structure being a kind of slavery, how revolution is necessary to create and achieve a worker state so that no one is exploited.” To which, “Paige” asks of the Soviet Union: “Is everybody equal?” Mom responds: “We have our problems.”

During Monday's edition of CBS's The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert asked guest Chris Hayes who he trusts “over there” in the Trump administration. Hayes, the host of MSNBC's All In weeknight program, responded quickly: “No one.”

As part of its coverage on the deadly Tuesday shooting at a number of Fresno, California locations (including a Catholic charities building), the Associated Press (AP) Twitter account went into full spin mode on behalf of the alleged Muslim shooter, claiming in a tweet that he “shouted ‘God is great’ before killings” instead of, you know, Allahu Akbar.

Two years ago, skipping the Super Bowl champions’ visit to the White House was an unforgivable sin. This year, with Donald Trump the host and president, the left-stream media has discovered a new morality and boycotting is now the principled thing to do.

During Monday’s The 11th Hour on MSNBC, serial liar Brian Williams trotted of an expert panel of Trump critics and let them loose to smear the President’s actions against North Korea. “On the one hand, Brian, when you have a dangerous stand-off with a nuclear-armed adversary, of course, you would like to think that within our government we have stability, methodical planning, every step is very calculated,” declared Politico’s Michael Crowley, “And I'm not sure we can be certain that that’s happening in this administration right now.”

CBS This Morning on Tuesday did the bidding of the ACLU and expressed concern over an Alabama mega church lobbying to have its own police force. Showing a clueless attitude in the wake of the 2015 Charleston church shooting, reporter David Begnaud asked Greg Garrison of AL.com: “Why can't they just rely on 911 and call for help if they need it?”

On Tuesday, a new book looking back at the 2016 presidential campaign revealed that despite Hillary Clinton starting off her candidacy with a relatively easy national TV interview conducted by CNN’s Brianna Keilar in July of 2015, the Democratic candidate actually wanted an even friendlier sit down with Yahoo’s Bianna Golodryga.
