The appearance of a March 23 portrayal of former California Governor Pete Wilson at the Los Angeles Times, though probably coincidental, is quite serendipitous. Six days after the alleged rape at a Maryland high school of a 14 year-old freshman girl at the hands of two late-teen classmates in the U.S. illegally, Times writer Mark Z. Barabak went after Wilson for his support of that state's Proposition 187, a 1994 initiative passed overwhelmingly by voters, whose purpose "was to make immigrants residing in the country without legal permission ineligible for public benefits."

Appearing on MSNBC’s 3 p.m. ET hour on Tuesday under the guise of being a “presidential historian,” left-wing pundit Douglas Brinkley accused President Trump and his associates – without evidence – of committing an act of “treason.” He went on rant that the President’s new executive order rolling back onerous Obama-era environmental regulations was “an assault on the public lands.”
Following her latest debate with White House press secretary Sean Spicer, liberal journalist and American Urban Radio Network correspondent April Ryan hilariously argued Tuesday afternoon on MSNBC that she doesn’t “have an agenda” despite being “road kill” in the eyes of Spicer.
Irony abounded on Tuesday as all three network morning shows used Democratic Party talking points to accuse Republican House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes of bias. While advancing a liberal partisan agenda, NBC, ABC, and CBS correspondents laughably told viewers that it was Congressman Nunes who had “lost even the appearance of impartiality.”
This past weekend, Erica Werner and Alan Fram at the Associated Press had a good old time beating up on President Donald Trump and the Republican-controlled House over their "humiliating failure" to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. In the process, though, the reporters, who have been covering Washington politics since the ACA's inception, betrayed breathtaking ignorance of one of its basic principles, calling into question whether they have any genuine knowledge of the legislation the GOP tried and failed to repeal and replace.
On Monday, the network morning shows mysteriously discovered a newfound respect for President Trump’s social media postings after he took to Twitter over the weekend to lay blame for the failure of health care legislation on the House Freedom Caucus and conservative activists. The hosts and correspondents on the NBC, ABC, and CBS broadcasts were gleeful as they touted the “blame game” and “recriminations” occurring within the Republican Party.
There are no words to describe how infuriating it is to hear details about the alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl by an 18-year-old illegal immigrant at a high school in Montgomery County, Maryland. The illegal alien (named Henry Sanchez) denied any sexual contact, but there is no denying that the sanctuary city policy where the school is based has become a huge problem.
Appearing as a guest on Friday's Hardball, MSNBC's Joy Reid claimed that Donald Trump's voters wanted him to "get all the brown people" off Obamacare instead of themselves. And then, following up on her AM Joy show the next morning, she hosted New York magazine columnist Frank Rich to discuss his latest article, "No Sympathy for the Hillbilly," in which he argued that Democrats are misguided in thinking that spending more time being sympathetic to Trump voters will lead them to future electoral success as they should work to boost their base turnout instead.
Apparently not content with just having all of its hosts and correspondents relentlessly attack the Trump administration and the Republican Party, NBC News decided to hire Barack Obama’s former White House press secretary Josh Earnest as a “political analyst” to join in the network’s savaging of the GOP.
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, far-left comedian Bill Maher made plenty of room for crass and hyperbolic attacks on President Donald Trump. The show featured everything from incest jokes about Ivanka Trump to offering a serious warning that President Trump might follow Adolf Hitler's lead in bringing "fascism" to America after a terrorist attack reminiscent of the burning of the Germany Reichstag building in the 1930s.
In the wake of the failure of the House GOP’s health care legislation on Friday, blame was being hurled all over Washington. And during Sunday’s Meet the Press on NBC, the panel joined in and savagely began tearing into the different factions of the Republican Party on the Hill. “That loss isn’t on the President it isn't on Paul Ryan and it is on the Area 51 sub-caucus of the Freedom Caucus, which believes in legislative flying saucers,” spat Republican radio host Hugh Hewitt.
On Saturday, supporters of the President gathered in locations all around the country for Make America Great Again rallies and marches. But with radical leftists in attendance at some rallies, violence erupted. But according to ABC’s Good Morning America on Sunday, it would appear that the Trump supporters were to blame. “All this as tensions grow higher than ever been Trump supporters and protesters. The fresh violence at rallies. Protesters tackled and beaten,” claimed Paula Faris during the show’s opening tease.
