New York Times reporter Michael Shear lead off Friday’s paper with the usual liberal horror show on President Trump’s proposed budget. You didn’t hard to read far to get the loaded liberal language, where taxpayer- and deficit-funded spending on all but the military is sacrosanct: “Trump Gambles in Cutting Services That Aid His Base – Budget Billed as Necessary, but Opponents Label it ‘Draconian’ and ‘Shameful.’

Just as the liberal “news” media have doubled down on fierce liberal activism since the Trump inauguration, so too is Hollywood pushing that leftist agenda. Variety celebrates the crusade -- that is what this is -- in an article headlined “TV Gets Woke: How Scripted Series Are Confronting Social Issues Like Never Before.”
It is not that Hollywood should be political, it is that the industry must be political. Even the sitcoms need to be political.

Washington Post culture blogger Alyssa Rosenberg offered a strange liberal argument on Thursday: “If Trump really wants to unify American culture, he should fund public broadcasting.” What a bad joke. To liberals, PBS and NPR unify the country. This is only true if you have no concern whatsoever for the long history of PBS and NPR abusing conservatives.

In “Heavy Meddle,” Friday night's episode of ABC’s Last Man Standing, Ryan (Jordan Masterson) and Kristin (Amanda Fuller), the show’s more liberal thinking couple, are worried that Kyle (Christoph Sanders) and Mandy (Molly Ephraim) wouldn’t be smart enough to participate in an escape room challenge.

Esquire’s Charles Pierce is accusing President Trump of adding to something he vowed to subtract from. In a Thursday post, Pierce called the White House’s proposed federal budget a “vast, noxious swamp into which all those tributaries of modern conservative thought have emptied themselves. People die in there, swallowed up in deep sinkholes of empowered bigotry and class anger.”

Seeing a conservative and a liberal agree on the idea of term limits is quite unusual. Though they don’t usually agree on much, CNBC’s Squawk Box co-anchors Joe Kernen and Andrew Ross Sorkin both praised the idea of term limits for members of Congress. Frustrated with Congress’s lack of progress on Trump’s agenda, Kernen argued that getting substantial change passed is “impossible. I think maybe you need term limits.”

On Friday afternoon, a slew of CNN personalities could barely contain their approval with the German journalists who questioned President Trump, swooning how they exclusively stuck to the wiretapping claims and should be given “kudos” for their questions from the left.

Stripped of NCAA Tournament basketball games because of its new public bathroom law, the State of North Carolina bore the brunt of heavy criticism Thursday from well-known sports figures. The law requires people to use the public bathroom of their birth gender. Conservatives say the law is needed to protect women and girls from predators, but LGBT activists want people to be able to choose their restroom based on “gender identity.”

Appearing on the 11 a.m. ET hour of MSNBC on Thursday, California Democratic Congressman Ted Lieu laughably told viewers of the left-wing network: “The best way to oppose fake news is for people to watch outlets like MSNBC, where you report real news all the time.”

Friday on ABC’s The View, the show immediately began by lamenting loudly over the proposed 2018 budget, released Thursday. Host Joy Behar complained that she couldn’t wait to bring up the topic because it was “so horrific and so horrendous:”

On Thursday's CNN Tonight, Don Lemon hosted a discussion in which he suggested that black Americans would "lose" in President Donald Trump's budget in spite of Trump asking black voters during the campaign, "what do you have to lose?" As conservative CNN political commentator and Trump supporter Paris Dennard was outnumbered 4-1 -- facing off with two liberals guests, a liberal host and a right-leaning guest who was critical of Trump's budget -- Dennard jousted with Lemon and at one point was admonished by the host to "let other people speak" even though Dennard was not the one speaking at the time.

Hostile journalists sparred with Donald Trump on Friday at a press conference, wondering why he was “scared” of “diversity” in the media and if German Chancellor Angela Merkel has “reservations” about the President. Kristina Dunz of the DPA German Press Agency labeled Trump an “isolationist” and disrespectful to the European Union. She then lectured, “Why are you scared of diversity in the news, in the media that you speak so often of fake news? And that things, after all, in the end cannot be proven?”

The liberal media just can’t seem to get anything right -- even math. Journalists were eager to follow in the wake of Rachel Maddow's tax fiasco. ABC and CBS evening news shows reported that Trump paid an effective tax rate of about 25 percent in 2005. But, as The Federalist’s Sean Davis noted, this is flat out wrong. Trump’s effective tax rate for 2005 was 79 percent. That’s more than three times higher than reported.

On Friday, in part two of his interview with United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, NBC Today co-host Matt Lauer worried about how President Trump was viewed by the international organization: “As you walk through the halls of the United Nations, does this president have credibility?”
