For the but-tell-us-how-you-really-feel file, this headline on a Friday post by Mother Jones blogger Kevin Drum: “Fuck You, James Comey.” The post, of course, centered on the presumed effect on presidential voting of Comey’s October 28 letter which jump-started the Hillary Clinton e-mail story. “When an election is close…there are dozens of people, events, and movements that can make a difference of 1 percent or so,” wrote Drum. “But if we're going to choose one particular person who managed to hand the White House to a buffoonish game show host, it's FBI director James Comey, the guy who…provided the match that Trump used to light the country on fire.”

I believe it was Rush Limbaugh who once said that liberals in power are dangerous but once they are out of power they are funny. And when they unexpectedly lose power in a most stunning way as happened last Tuesday when Donald Trump won the presidency, they are absolutely hilarious as you will see. 

Right now on YouTube there are dozens, perhaps hundreds, of hilarious liberal mental meltdown compilation videos which have gone viral. Once you start watching them you just can't stop watching the over the top real life comedy. So let your humble correspondent be your guide through just a few of these videos as I review the highlights.

Amy Schumer would make a great mainstream media reporter. She sent out a meme regarding Donald Trump that had been debunked weeks ago. She even admitted it was phony but said it “doesn’t matter.” Fake but accurate. Got it. Dan Rather on line two, Ms. Schumer

NewsBusters has chronicled a slew of media reactions both on-air and print in the hours and days since Donald Trump’s stunning presidential election upset of Hillary Clinton, but stories like one posted late Friday for Saturday’s print edition of The New York Times about West Coast liberals proved that such meltdowns will be here to stay for the near future.

Left bereft by the election results, veteran former ABC reporter Lynn Sherr had a long rant on the site of left-wing public television omnipresence Bill Moyers, under an aggressive headline: “Agree: It Was Sexism: It wasn't because she was unqualified or didn't get the popular vote. It was sexism.” Sherr lamented "the tide that turned America into a nasty pit of hatred is a direct descendant of the entrenched male privilege -- and fear of change by both sexes -- that has kept women down for centuries. The same old insistence, barely recast, on keeping a woman in her place."

The Associated Press and reporter Josh Lederman are feeling sorry for outgoing President Barack Obama. Shortly after 9 a.m. on Saturday morning, in advance of Obama's last foreign tour, the AP's headline at Lederman's dispatch read: "On last foreign tour, Obama must find a way to explain Trump."

Lederman wrote that our poor, put-upon president "must pivot and reassure the U.S. and other countries that somehow, it will all be OK." It's almost as if he needs to provide "safe spaces" on Air Force One for grieving foreign snowflakes who are apparently having as hard a time accepting reality as many U.S. college students.

Less than 24 hours after CBS and the other networks declared that Donald Trump had been elected president, one of their prime time crime dramas took a thinly-veiled jab at the new President-elect, as [spoiler alert!] a homicidal teenager justifies his murders of entire families as a way to punish high school bullies by citing “some politicians” who say “the best way to handle terrorists is to take out their whole families.”

ABC, CBS, and NBC's evening newscasts all devoted air time to racially-charged incidents in schools in the wake of the election. However, NBC Nightly News stood out from its competitors for failing to mention the violence against Donald Trump supporters in recent days. ABC's World News Tonight featured cell phone video of a California high school student being punched for supporting Trump. CBS Evening News played footage of "people celebrat[ing] a Trump voter being pummeled" in Chicago. The CBS newscast also zeroed in on a "kill Trump" hashtag on Twitter.

Friday night’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend on the CW presents abortion as an acceptable option if the couple doesn’t tell their priest - because then the priest won’t tell God. What kind of liberal mumbo-jumbo rationalization is this?

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.”
