Appearing as a guest on a special Saturday edition of The Lead with Jake Tapper on CNN, Women's March attendee Padma Lakshmi, host of the Bravo program Top Chef, complained about Republican plans to defund Planned Parenthood, dubiously claiming that "little of what Planned Parenthood does is abortion," and fretting that President Donald Trump "has given voice to a lot of racism and misogyny and just given a boldness to a certain kind of hatred and violence."


A bit later, after being pressed by host Tapper about pro-life groups being excluded from the march, she conceded that doing so was a mistake for outreach purposes, but then in the next breath hyperbolically asserted that one has to be "insane" or "crazy" to not be a "feminist."

CNN’s resident anti-Donald Trump alarmist Brian Stelter took to his show, “Reliable Sources,” Sunday and issued his arguably most dire/bonkers warning about the president yet. “Do citizens in dictatorships recognize what's happening right here right now,” he sneered, “Are they looking at the first two days of the Trump administration and saying, ‘Oh, that's what my leader does?’” Stelter’s cries of despot were triggered by Trump doing what all politicians do, exaggerate their own performance.

Things got heated on Sunday’s Meet the Press after the president’s council, Kellyanne Conway, confronted NBC’s Chuck Todd on his, and media’s, bias against Donald Trump. Todd was up in arms because Press Secretary Sean Spicer claimed that Trump’s inauguration crowd was the largest ever. “That now calls into question everything the press secretary will say from here on out,” Todd insisted. But Conway countered with the media’s own history of reporting false information on the Trump administration.

The Sunday following the anti-President Donald Trump Women’s March on Washington, network news rushed to spin the event as an inclusive event about putting the president on notice. “[Trump will] be confronting images, however, like this,” hyped Paula Farris on Good Morning America, “Hundreds of thousands of women, and men, hitting the streets.” There was no talk of the obscene parts of Ashley Judd’s hate filled tirade nor Madonna’s fantasy of “blowing up the White House,” only a fleeting mention on NBC.

On Saturday's New Day on CNN, during a segment with two organizers from the left-wing Women's March on Washington, D.C., CNN host Alisyn Camerota brought up the issue of pro-life women's groups being unwelcome even though the liberal activist group tries to market itself as if it represents all women.

But her guests misleadingly tried to deny that pro-life groups are not welcome as they claimed that everyone is generally invited to show up and march, ignoring the fact that the group recently kicked a pro-life women's group off the "Partners" list on its website.

If Ashley Judd’s R-rated rant comparing President Donald Trump’s team to the Nazis wasn’t insane enough, loony Madonna admitted to wanting to kill the newly inaugurated president of United States. “Yes, I am angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” she proclaimed to the hundreds of thousands of march attendees in Washington, DC on Saturday. But yet, she started her address declaring, “Welcome to the revolution of love!”

Amidst MSNBC’s day-long propaganda effort on Saturday for the Women’s March on Washington, correspondent Stephanie Gosk fawned over how the far-left participants “aren’t protesters” because “[t]hey’ve never protested before” and came “from all over the country, a lot of them with their children, with their daughters.”

Of all the far-left, wacky statements made at Saturday’s Women’s March, actress Ashley Judd may take the top honor (or DisHonor) for an R-rated tangent against “Electoral College-sanctioned hate speech” by President Trump and his team of “Nazis” capturing “little girls like Pokemon” and Ivanka Trump as his “favorite sex symbol.”

Yes, that headline does not contain a typo. All Saturday morning on MSNBC, the liberal cable network foolishly tried to convince viewers that the far-left, pro-abortion Women’s March would offer only “a message of unity” and not be “hateful or anti-Trump.” This is just not true. As my colleague and MRC Culture writer Katie Yoder has repeatedly chronicled, women’s groups with pro-life beliefs were not only purged, but also informed that the official event platform “is pro-choice.”

The day after Donald Trump became the 45th president of the United States, NBC News stoked fears for the next four years by hyping protests from around the world and portrayed Russia as the only country celebrating. “Protests not only taking place here in the United States but around the world as well, from Tokyo to Berlin to Manila, and London as well,” announced co-anchor Craig Melvin Saturday on Today, leading into a ridiculous report by chief global correspondent Bill Neely.

Friday's NBC Nightly News hyped how President Donald Trump supposedly lobbed "verbal grenades" in his inauguration address, as Hallie Jackson put it. Chuck Todd contended that the speech was "shockingly divisive for an inaugural," and quickly added that it was "unnecessarily divisive." Todd later underlined that Trump "insulted almost every living president that was there...which, to me, was so stunning." On CBS Evening News, Scott Pelley emphasized that "inauguration speeches are always about binding the wounds of the election and bringing the country together — and that's not what happened today."

During MSNBC's Friday coverage of the inauguration, Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow played up a report from the Huffington Post claiming that President Trump's transition team requested military hardware for the inaugural parade. Matthews wondered, "Wouldn't that look like a little shades of Pyongyang?" Maddow added, "It would be a little Red Square to do that." Minutes later, Maddow revisited the supposed request for a "Red Square-style show of military force," and lamented, "It's embarrassing — to be the only president with no public service or military experience being the one who wants to most show off the military."
