To follow-up on the adulterous priest (which still continues by the way), Friday night’s episode of Fox's The Exorcist delivers yet another awful depiction of religious figures. This time, it is a nun who must be demeaned as she actually suggests “mercy killing” as an option.

Now that they're slightly less shell shocked after their world was flipped upside down and shaken on that extended downer of an election night, liberals appear to be taking stock of the sobering new reality confronting them.

An example of this was evident on MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Show last night when Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, odds-on favorite to lead Democrats post-Hillary, decided it no longer serves any purpose in publicly insulting Trump's supporters regardless of her actual opinions about them.

In their respective articles alleging that the mainstream media facilitated the election of Donald Trump, Brian Beutler of The New Republic and Eric Alterman of The Nation overlapped somewhat. For example, each claimed that the Hillary e-mail story was wildly overcovered, with Beutler citing it as the shining example of how the media “failed abysmally” regarding the “framing and contextualizing of events.” Elsewhere, the two pundits diverged. Beutler singled out the media’s fascination, in the last ten days of the campaign, with Trump’s staying on message when they should have been pointing out that “on every single one of those days, he was saying outrageous and false things at a dizzying clip.” What Liberal Media? author Alterman took a long-term view, contending that relentless lobbying from the right has paid off in the form of lax treatment from the media: “There’s no truth to [the] contention that network coverage has been unfair to Trump; quite obviously, the reverse is true. But conservatives learned long ago that there’s no limit to the effectiveness of their “work the refs” strategy, with the networks bending over further and further to placate their demands.”

On her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Friday, anchor Andrea Mitchell interviewed Margot Gerster – a Hillary Clinton supporter who met the defeated Democratic nominee on a hiking trail in New York – and eagerly wondered: “What insights did you glean about her demeanor, her mood? And you know, we all want to know how she's holding up.”

Friday’s New York Times proved the paper still hasn’t processed Donald Trump’s win, unleashing three bitter articles accusing Trump and his supporters of sexism, racism, and hate crimes. First up, Katharine Seelye and Claire Cain Miller wrote weepily about women whose dreams were crushed by sexist Trump supporters who couldn’t stand the idea of a woman president. Liam Stack spread gay panic, while Caitlin Dickerson and Stephanie Saul rounded up alleged Trump related hate-crime anecdotes to make a pattern.

Liberal MSNBC host Joy Reid has been in meltdown mode since the news of Donald Trump's victory over Hillary Clinton, as evidenced by some of her over the top tweets from the past couple of days as she has tried to link Trump and even his supporters to neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan. On Thursday, reacting to news that the Trump campaign's Steve Bannon would work in the White House, Reid snarked that the move amounted to "bringing neonazism in from the cold and giving it West Wing power."

In the wake of Donald Trump’s election, another overpaid, self-righteous entertainer lectured us about how we ought to live our lives, asking, “america, what the fuck is wrong with you?” Musician Moby, an ardent Hillary Clinton supporter, shared an open letter to America with Billboard the day after the election. In it, he bemoaned the election of a, you guessed it, “dim-witted, racist, misogynist.” “Hopefully,” Moby also mused, “somehow, america will finally wake up the fact that republicans are simply, terrible.”

On Friday afternoon, Media Research Center Research Director Rich Noyes took to the airwaves of the Fox Business Network (FBN) and Cavuto: Coast to Coast to blast anti-Donald Trump demonstrators as not “passionate” but “rioters” and “criminals” baited by the liberal media that, if they continue acting up, will only paint them as spreading “partisan fear-mongering.”

Network journalists are still mourning the American public’s rejection of  Hillary Clinton. Nightline co-anchor Juju Chang on Wednesday talked about the scene of “devastation” at Clinton’s campaign headquarters and described the loss as a “devastating chapter in what has been a decades-long story of public service.”

Columnist David Brooks is the house "conservative" of the New York Times which means he is currently busy consoling his fellow liberals over Donald Trump's election victory. Brooks, in his column today titled "The View From Trump Tower" but which could more accurately be labeled "The View From Ivory Tower," describes texting people "off the ledge." Ironically it is Brooks himself who leaps off that ledge at the end of his column due to his extreme Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Just when you thought MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell was finished on Wednesday night in fawning over President Barack Obama as “the most noble man” to ever be President (above supposedly genocidal racists George Washington), the Last Word host was just getting started as he charted Election Day as the moment marking a decline in American civilization thanks to Donald Trump’s election.

Many people are taking the hashtag #NotMyPresident seriously, believing that any endorsement or recognition of Donald Trump’s new role is an acceptance of the man himself.
