The penultimate fifth season of The Americans debuts at 10 PM EST/PST tonight (Tuesday) on FX. As I’ve written before, while the FX series humanizes undercover KGB operatives working in the U.S. on behalf of the Soviet Union, the show also illustrates the ruthlessness of Soviet communism and how the American Left in the 1980s helped advance Soviet interests.

Appearing as a guest on Monday's CNN Tonight, Georgetown University professor and former MSNBC political analyst Michael Eric Dyson complained that Donald Trump had "tried to retroactively abort" Barack Obama "from the womb of democracy," accused Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of being a "Dr. Frankenstein" who had helped birth "monster" Trump, and ended up ranting over Dr. Ben Carson recently including African slaves in a discussion of immigrants whose descendants have benefited from their ancestors' tough journey to America -- even though former President Barack Obama himself has a history of calling slaves "immigrants."

So the mom from Malcolm in the Middle apparently hates Donald Trump. Or to be more prescise, the actress who played Lois Wilkerson on the Fox hit comedy, Jane Kaczmarek. The actress showed up on last Friday’s edition of PBS’s Tavis Smiley show to charge that the new president has “hurt the feelings of every human being in this country....so I’m not too worried about hurting the feelings of him or the people who support him.” This apparently includes members of Kaczmarek’s own family, or as she called them “My favorite ‘Basket of Deplorables.’”

Given the chance to press Nancy Pelosi on her fellow Democrat’s shocking sex joke at the expense of Kellyanne Conway, the journalists at CBS This Morning on Tuesday punted.

At a dinner last week, Congressman Cedric Richmond remarked on a photo of Conway kneeling on a couch in the White House, saying, “she really looked kind of familiar there in that position.”

These are the questions the networks refuse to fully address: If abortion is just 3% of Planned Parenthood’s “services,” why doesn’t it stop for the sake of federal funding? Or, if federal funding doesn't go towards abortion, why would the administration halt Planned Parenthood funding? Answers: It isn’t only 3% and money is fungible.

Since Saturday, when Donald Trump first took to Twitter to accuse former President Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower, the morning and evening shows of ABC, CBS and NBC have devoted 107 minutes, 33 seconds to refuting the President’s claim.

Sometimes, Cosmo surprises us... and not in the "I Walked in on a Foursome" and 15 Other OMG Confessions" kind of way. While the liberal, feminist magazine usually pushes progressive content, it occasionally runs trenchant pieces by conservative authors. At least one editor there must realize that conservative and liberal women can agree on several important tenets of feminism. For example, women should not be targeted or demeaned simply for their sex.
