On Friday, NBC’s Today invited on Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to attack the Trump administration over investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and even teed her up to push baseless conspiracy theories suggesting the President was being blackmailed by Russia.
WASHINGTON — The average American is understandably perplexed as to why Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and, of course, the runner up in last year's Democrat primaries, Sen. Bernie Saunders, are so lathered up over the Republicans' recent overtures to the Russians. They are calling for the impeachment of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
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. Instead, they stuck to other topics as they talked to the House Minority leader. 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.”
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.
During an interview on Sunday’s State of the Union, CNN host Jake Tapper asked if House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi condemn Democratic Rep. Cedric Richmond’s sexist comments about White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.
During her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Tuesday, host Andrea Mitchell interrupted her panel of guests to go to live coverage of House Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi ranting about the resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn at a press conference. In her comments, the left-wing lawmaker cited a fake Twitter account purporting to be Flynn.
El presentador del Noticiero Univisión: Edición Nocturna, Enrique Acevedo, se encuentra en la ciudad de Washington para encabezar la cobertura de los primeros cien días de la presidencia de Donald Trump por la cadena. Hasta ahora esa cobertura ha consistido más que nada en una contraprogramación de la "resistencia" al presidente por la oposición política, incluida una exigencia de Acevedo a Twitter de que suspenda la cuenta de Trump en esa red social.
During a press conference Monday morning, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi referred to President Trump as “President Bush.” In a frustrated spiel, Pelosi stumbled over her words as she called out “President Bush” for being unreasonable since his “inauguration.”
Univision's late night news anchor, Enrique Acevedo, has temporarily relocated to Washington, D.C. to help the network cover the first 100 days of the Trump Administration. But coverage so far appears to be little more than Resistance counterprogramming, including Acevedo's demand that Twitter cancel Trump's account.
CNN has rained fire on Donald Trump's tweets for being extremely unfair. But on Tuesday night, CNN host Jake Tapper asked Nancy Pelosi her take on the brand-new Neil Gorsuch nomination to the Supreme Court, and she made a wild overstatement: “If you breathe air, drink water, eat food, take medicine, or in any other way interact with the courts, this is a very bad decision.” Wouldn’t it seem natural to ask Pelosi how precisely it is that Gorsuch opposes air, water, food, and medicine? But Tapper must moved along to the process question of how the Democratic Party should handle the pick.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid apparently believes that the memory of the American public is so horrendous, that she actually attempted to rewrite the history of the passing of ObamaCare on Wednesday’s All In in an attempt to smear the GOP. “Republicans have been saying for SO LONG that they're going to repeal and replace, repeal and replace,” she exclaimed to Democratic strategist Jess McIntosh, “It's just like a catch phrase but they never had a risk of having to do it because they always had Barack Obama to save them from themselves.”
It’s fair to say that from 2007 through 2010, the mere words “Speaker Pelosi” gave many NewsBusters readers the willies. If some lefty activists and enough voters get their way, you’ll have the chance to hear a lot of “Speaker Obama.” On Wednesday, Ben Mathis-Lilley of Slate discussed and endorsed a Change.org petition calling on Barack Obama to run for the House of Representatives in 2018 from Illinois’s 1st congressional district, the idea being that if Obama won the seat and Democrats took control of the lower chamber of Congress, Obama would become Speaker of the House.
