The American transgender community is actively recruiting the next LGBT athlete. Except this time, unlike Michael Sam, they would like said athlete to actually be good.

The New York Times lead editorial Wednesday on the Orlando massacre, “The Threat to Gay Americans,” was notable both for the words it did contain – names of Republicans who the Times repugnantly held responsible for fostering the hatred that led to the mass murder – and for the words it didn’t contain: “Radical Islam.” That’s despite Omar Mateen, the actual mass murderer, calling a local TV reporter and stating “I did it for ISIS. I did it for the Islamic State." Meanwhile, Andrew Rosenthal accuses Trump of fomenting Stalinist genocide, and Jim Rutenberg and Frank Bruni indulge in some bias by omission.

As Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King appeared as a guest on Tuesday's New Day to discuss the Orlando night club terror attack, CNN host Chris Cuomo pressed him over the issue of gun laws and also over whether Republicans should be making a point of specifying that it was a gay club that was targeted when speaking of the attack.

The two also got into a debate over whether political correctness has made it more difficult to head off Islamic terrorism by pressuring people into keeping silent about suspicions toward Muslim acquaintances.

Tuesday night marked the premiere of ABC’s new comedy Uncle Buck. Pretty much the only even remotely interesting part of this very non-funny comedy is that Uncle Buck, instead of being a delinquent ne'er-do-well white guy (John Candy) like in the original movie, is instead a ne'er-do-well black guy (Mike Epps). Until the 55 minute mark of the episode, when something truly awful that I did not know existed, and now cannot unsee, appeared on my screen

For one New York Times columnist, democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton hasn’t been revolutionary enough in her economic policies. Times columnist Eduardo Porter complained that Clinton’s economic plan, which included “only $1.1 trillion” in new tax hikes and $275 million in infrastructure spending, was just a “careful collection of tweaks and prods.”

Looking for some good news this Father’s Day? Try this heartening video of kids saying what makes their dads special. To Americans, they’re NFL players. But to their kids, they’re just the best dads ever.

Stephen Colbert stooped to a new low on Tuesday night when he connected Donald Trump to Naziism and used a swastika to represent the businessman’s beliefs. In a so-called comedy bit, the Late Show host used a chalkboard to mock Trump’s attacks on Barack Obama. As he began to draw the Nazi insignia, Colbert yelled, “Trump is saying Obama is not smart because he won't say radical Islam.”

Shortly after a radical Jihadist targeted a gay nightclub and murdered 49 people in Orlando, Dan Savage has announced the LGBT community’s enemy #1: Donald Trump. In an interview with Chris Hayes on MSNBC, gay-activist Dan Savage said that “Trump is the enemy of the LGBT community” and “is beating up on…a vulnerable minority group.”

Nearly two days after Donald Trump revoked press credentials of The Washington Post for his campaign events, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports was still wallowing over it on Wednesday afternoon as the eponymous host and her panel slammed the idea that a candidate would attack the liberal media as both “petulant and childish” plus bashed the Reagan administration’s press record.

It’s a new push by numerous companies: showing families with two dads. Hallmark has done it. Campbell’s soup has done it. Now, Dove is doing it.

On Wednesday’s The View, the panel discussed President Obama’s speech yesterday where he slammed those in the GOP “yapping” about him not using the phrase “radical Islam” when talking about terrorist attacks. Co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Raven-Symone defended the President’s position, while Goldberg claimed, falsely, that Obama “used to say” these words but they were never “good enough” for his critics.

On Wednesday, the Morning Joe crew provided viewers with their daily dose of Hillary Clinton propagandizing.  Over the past few weeks, Clinton crossed the finish line in her Democratic primary battle, promoted her foreign policy positions in the wake of Orlando’s terrorism, and capitalized on the recent gaffes from her Republican opponent. Thanks to MSNBC, we are reminded that through it all, Clinton has found her voice.

Carol Costello was true to her liberal form on Wednesday's CNN Newsroom with regard to her pro-gun control slant. Costello tossed softball questions at Shannon Watts of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America; and, as she's done in the past, gave a platform to call for new firearms regulations in the wake of the terrorist attack in Orlando. She also wondered, "Is this the turning point?"

Providing an assist to Hillary Clinton, CBS This Morning’s Nancy Cordes on Wednesday flatly declared that Donald Trump’s Second Amendment attacks on her are “unfounded.” Discussing the “political firefight” in the wake of the Orlando terror attack, Cordes parroted, “Hillary Clinton waded in Tuesday accusing Donald Trump of ‘bizarre rants’ on the topic and batting back his unfounded claim that she wants to abolish the right to bear arms.”

Appearing on Wednesday’s CBS This Morning, New Yorker writer Malcolm Gladwell warned the hosts that Hillary Clinton would be the victim of sexist attacks if she became president: “...if you look at previous examples of women who become the first head of state in their country, the examples are really a little bit sobering. It's not easy to be the first woman to take that. And so, if Hillary wins, I mean, my prediction is she's going to be in for a tough time...”
