In the aftermath of the Clinton/Warren rally in Cincinnati, MSNBC correspondents hailed the “magic” of what was apparently more like a “rock concert” than a campaign event. On Tuesday, Morning Joe exhibited more of the same as they obsessed over Clinton and Warren’s “really good chemistry.” Yes, another MSNBC groupie took the compulsive idolization to another level, as host Joe Scarborough likened Warren to rock n’ roll legend Led Zeppelin:

CBS This Morning took a strange turn during its interview with Chaos Monkeys author Antonio Martinez. Martinez, who publically compared Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to "Fidel Castro", led co-host Gayle King to ask Martinez "is that a compliment?"

CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter brought on disgraced CBS anchor Dan Rather to assess “media complicity in the rise of Trump.” He never even hinted at the notion that the liberal media liked the idea of Trump as the easiest nominee for the Clintons to vanquish.

Rather’s new title is “CEO of the production company News & Guts.” The company website features Rather standing alone in a sun-dappled field with a pair of binoculars.

Dehumanizing people only works one way for leftists. Michael Ian Black’s new children’s book, A Child’s First Book of Trump, explains the “wild” “beasties,” called the Trumps, to our “youngest citizens,” according to its satirical description. USA Today notes that while the book is supposedly for the youngest citizens, “Older citizens might need a primer too.”

MSNBC’s Ari Melber filled in for Lawrence O’Donnell as host on The Last Word Monday night, where he and his guests, The Nation’s Joan Walsh and CBS News Sunday Morning Contributor Nancy Giles talked about Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s speech with Hillary Clinton earlier that day. Giles held nothing back in her praise for the pair, calling Warren a “white rap star” who “pumped up Hillary” in a moment that was “almost like testifying” in church.

At Monday afternoon's White House press briefing, Fox News reporter Kevin Corke asked Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz about the reasons for the White House's reluctance to account for President Obama's whereabouts and activities on the night of the September 2012 Benghazi attacks.

Schultz never genuinely answered Corke's question, so then Corke zinged him with the fact that it took President Barack Obama far longer than the length of time Congress has spent on Benghazi to hem, haw, and finally reject the Keystone Pipeline project.

The New York Times Sunday Book Review featured former book editor Sam Tanenhaus talking about several news political tomes under the rubric “Why Populism Now?” And when we say “talking about,” we mean using the books as a pretext to slime Republicans as demographically doomed, out-of-touch racists. Also: Libertarians give you cancer.

On Monday's New Day, after a discussion of the possibility that some Britons may have buyers' remorse after the Brexit vote to end EU membership and how the issue plays into the U.S. presidential election, CNN political commentator Errol Louis claimed that Republicans have been on a trend of candidates making "more extreme" promises that they cannot keep to their base. Moments later, former CNN anchor Ali Velshi -- also a former Al Jazeera America host -- asserted that he hoped journalists would "press" Donald Trump on specifics, as he predicted that Hillary Clinton would "shine" in the debates.

Hillary Clinton trotted around Ohio Monday with Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, adding fuel to the speculation that Warren is going to be her VP pick. And like a celebrity couple, the “big three” networks took time to fantasize about the greatness of a Clinton/Warren ticket. “A major new force on the campaign trail, Elizabeth Warren joining Hillary Clinton side by side for the first time today,” remarked NBC’s Lester Holt on Nightly News

If you were under the impression that the #1 topic among African-American sports fans in America was sports, well, you have been sorely mistaken. At least, according to Fox Sports 1’s Jason Whitlock. Because, Whitlock is convinced the #1 topic among black sports fans is…wait for it…white women.

The US Supreme Court dealt a major blow to pro-life supporters Monday, by striking down a Texas law that required abortion clinics to have admitting privileges to a local hospital. But the liberal “big three” networks seemed to tout the ruling on their evening shows, some almost mocking. “Jubilation from the pro-choice side,” ABC’s George Stephanopoulos cheerfully noted on World News Tonight, before switching to a sad voice,But despair from anti-abortion forces.”

When citing instances of “the worst in human behavior,” reasonable choices include the Holocaust, the Rwandan genocide, and whatever ISIS did today. In a Sunday post, Washington Monthly blogger D. R. Tucker offered an absurdly unreasonable choice: the last ten Republican national conventions. Tucker did comment hopefully that “perhaps this year’s GOP convention will be so sick, so sordid, so sour that the general election will effectively be over by the end of July.”

Apparently nothing is beneath the snark and clownery of Deadspin. On Monday, Deadspin writer Tom Ley posted an article that referenced an incident involving an airplane, a near-death situation, prayer, and Tim Tebow. What could go wrong?

Just often enough to catch your attention, loose-cannon lefty comic Bill Maher demonstrates why conservatives still remain in his audience.

One of the guests on his HBO show Friday night, veteran Clinton apologist/Democrat consultant Paul Begala made a claim about Republicans so insipid that Maher -- who enjoys nothing more than bashing the GOP -- immediately challenged.

Monday on Andrea Mitchell Reports, the host salivated over the “magic on stage” at the Clinton/Warren rally Cincinnati earlier in the day. Mitchell and Anita Dunn, former White House communications director, went back and forth as they praised the pair for their “very real” chemistry on stage. They went on and on, suggesting the women looked like a “pretty good winning ticket for the fall” who resembled the “boomer magic” of Bill Clinton and Al Gore.
