The liberal media took Senator John McCain’s warning of a dictator Donald Trump during Sunday’s Meet the Press on NBC and ran with it as the biggest story of the day, seeming to use it as a vindication of their smears since day one. “Is that over the top? Or is there a concern,” ABC’s Jon Karl inquired to Senator Rand Paul on This Week. While on CBS’s Face the Nation, moderator John Dickerson worried that Trump supporters would take it upon themselves and violently “act” against the “enemy” press.
During Sunday’s Good Morning America, ABC finally became worried about “skyrocketing” illegal immigration and the strain on resources. But it was not illegal immigration into the United States they were fretting about, but that into Canada. “Illegally crossing the border, fueled by fears after recent immigration raids and uncertainty over President Trump's executive order,” announced co-anchor Dan Harris during the opening tease, “Can Canada handle this new influx?”
On Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC, after NewsMax's J.D. Hayworth appeared on a panel where he was outnumbered by liberals 3:1, host Joy Reid repeatedly attempted to race-bait the former Republican congressman with stories that ranged from false to misleading, and ended up kicking him off the show when she was dissatisfied with how he answered her questions. Reid: "I think we're done with this segment because you literally answered a non sequitur that's incredibly offensive. I'm going to let Rosie Perez talk about the -- thank you for being here. No, you know what, what an odd exchange."
Don't expect the media to fact check any sketches painting President Trump in a bad light. Reporters are too busy cheering them on. Remember when Saturday Night Live mocked President Barack Obama? Yes, it did happen. Only the sketches aimed at the first black president were so rare they became a special event, like a holiday of sorts.
It’s not every day that we can get some good ole bashing against the lefties: Enter ABC’s Last Man Standing. On Friday’s episode, “The Friendly Library,” Mike Baxter takes a couple swings at the left, leading off with Obama.
On Friday’s CBS Evening News, anchor Scott Pelley strayed into punditry as he observed that “the common denominator of Mr. Trump’s woes is the Constitution” and not the media because they didn’t cause the departure of Mike Flynn, halt his immigration executive order, or have Andy Pudzer withdraw as the Labor Secretary nominee.
Appearing on Fox News’s Outnumbered on Friday, former United Nations ambassador John Bolton blasted NBC’s Chuck Todd for taking to Twitter on Thursday to attack President Trump’s “un-American” criticism of the media during a press conference: “I thought that tweet was one of the most foolish things I've seen from the media in a long time, and you know, that's a pretty low bar there. The media is not entitled to worship.”
As New York Times columnist and CNN political commentator Charles Blow appeared on Thursday's CNN Tonight, the liberal analyst had another of his infamous blow-up episodes, this time targeting CNN commentator Kayleigh McEnany, after the right-leaning analyst dared to touch his arm in a friendly manner before criticizing his negative attacks on President Donald Trump. Blow griped: "The fact that you touched me before you said that is wrong. Don't do that. Don't do that. ... No, no, no, ma'am, no, ma'am, don't do that. Don't touch me and then launch into your 'sinister motivations' diatribe. That's not going to happen tonight, ma'am." Toward the end of the heated exchange, after McEnany lamented, "You said I'm not even allowed to touch you," Blow exclaimed, "No, you're not!" over and over again for a total of eight times.
As monogamy goes out of style, throuples are TV’s hot new trend. On Valentine’s Day, a few shows addressed the topic, pushing to normalize sexual relationships among groups of three. Predictably, several media outlets embraced the edginess.
Rather than rejoice over the stock market rally, many people are pushing economic pessimism and that upset CNBC’s Rick Santelli. The CNBC editor and contributor complained about the pessimism on Squawk Box Feb. 16. “Much of the world always finds something to cheer about, always finds hope in every stock market. This particular rally, because of the president, everybody wants to put cold water on it and maybe some day they’ll all get their wish,” Santelli said.
On Friday, the broadcast networks continued their hyperventilating over President Trump taking on the media during his Thursday press conference. All three morning shows were beside themselves as hosts and correspondents breathlessly hurled one sensational adjective after another to describe the event, including: “raucous,” “combative,” “shocking,” “jaw-dropping,” “unhinged,” and “astonishing.”
At a time when Hollywood and the liberal feminist media champion the idea that children hold women back, one big name actress is stressing that motherhood was a “journey” that taught her to “own” her womanhood.
