After having a meltdown election night on CNN, political commentator and former Obama staffer Van Jones tried to walk back the extreme tone of his previous comments on Thursday’s The View.  Prompted by co-host Whoopi Goldberg, Jones explained that by blaming the election of Trump on a “white-lash” he wasn’t actually calling all Trump voters white racists. “It would be unfair to the Trump voters to say that they're all racist,” Jones stated. “I wasn’t saying that,” he added, seemingly backing away from what everyone understands ‘white-lash’ to mean.

In an unusually nasty attack from Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon Wednesday night, the late-night comedian went after President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for education secretary, philanthropist Besty DeVos: “But this has some people upset, I heard that Donald Trump's pick for Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos, never went to public school and has never even worked for public schools. People are saying that as a billionaire without much experience, she might be too similar to Trump.”

Each year Dictionary.com and Oxford Dictionaries pick a Word of the Year that “embodies a major theme resonating deeply in the cultural consciousness over the prior 12 months.”  Of all the words they could have chosen, this year, influenced by the presidential election, the words “xenophobia” and “post-truth” were given the star treatment.

Both dictionary organizations chose their specific words because they felt they both had been major headliners for (liberal) news stories in 2016, and had seen a drastic increase of word lookups after the U.K. left the European Union (Brexit)  in June and after then presidential candidate Donald Trump secured the Republican nomination in July.

CBS’s Late Show host Stephen Colbert took another turn into the gutter on Wednesday night to the glee of his liberal audience as he joked that Mitt Romney consuming frog legs while having dinner the evening prior with President-elect Donald Trump “taste[d] a little bit like Trump's balls” and so began a brief rift joking Romney had performed oral sex on Trump.

BBC World News America’s Washington correspondent Katty Kay doesn’t appreciate the low regard Trump fans have for the press.

The journalists at CBS This Morning on Thursday were very concerned about the detainees at Guantanamo Bay, but not so much about the threat they pose. Instead, reporter Margaret Brennan reported live from Cuba and let the world know that the men saw the election of Donald Trump as “the end of the world.” As a network graphic fretted over the “forever prisoners,” Brennan worried, “Donald Trump's campaign pledge to stop this prison from closing has left the fate of many prisoners in limbo.”

On Thursday’s Good Morning America, ABC promoted yet another viciously anti-Catholic television show, this time on HBO called The Young Pope. The show stars Jude Law as a presently instated amoral and power-hungry American pope. The ABC panel introduced the show as “controversial” and  “sparking outrage” before dismissing it as only unwatchable because it was “boring.” Yet the fact that ABC spent time covering the show without actually passing judgement or warning of it’s content, shows where the network really stands on promoting anti-Catholic “entertainment.”

At Wednesday's White House press briefing, Obama administration Press Secretary Josh Earnest, in a fit of completely unsupported arrogance, claimed that 805,000 jobs have been created "while President Obama was in office," and that "President Obama has set a high standard" in that regard.

The lazy stenographers posing as journalists present at the briefing, along with other reporters covering Carrier Corp.'s decision not to move its Indianapolis manufacturing jobs to Mexico, have failed to recognize what anyone whose job it has been to follow the economy during the Obama administration should know, namely that the economy, through October 2016, has fewer manufacturing jobs now than it did when President Obama took office in January 2009.

Congressional reporter Carl Hulse’s “On Washington” column, demonstrated Hulse’s eternal optimism on behalf of the Democratic Party. Even after a breathtaking setback on all levels just three weeks ago, Hulse has quickly switched back into his typical pro-Dem wishful thinking for Thursday’s “Democrats See Medicare as Winning Wedge Issue.” He’s written this article hundreds of times, focusing on some issue -- or more likely non-issue -- that will guarantee Democrats a permanent victory and drive Republicans down

College campuses nationwide responded to Donald Trump’s election by providing “safe spaces” for distressed students to discuss their feelings on the election, challenge-free. Students were coddled with coloring books, Play-Doh, bubble-blowing toys, snacks, stuffed animals, and real animals to calm them down. Some colleges cancelled classes and exams. Podcast comedian Adam Carolla and radio talk-show host Dennis Prager will set out to challenge these campuses with their documentary, “No Safe Spaces.” According to The Hollywood Reporter the documentary will feature the two touring college campuses to talk and debate with students and faculty about their precious “safe spaces.”

In the new Winter issue of Jocks & Nerds magazine, singer John Legend sounded more like a promotional advertisement for President Barack Obama’s presidency… than say…a celebrity entertainer interviewed for a publication. Obama is "scandal-free"? We are "already missing" the Obamas?
