CNN hosts once again trotted out Jeffrey Toobin, their left-wing political commentator dressed up as a legal analyst, to trash Republicans. Toobin on Thursday expressed his frustration that the media is being distracted by Trump’s tweets when they could be talking about the horrors of the GOP health bill.
In a commercial promoting an upcoming showing of the movie Olympus Has Fallen, centered around the plot of North Korean terrorists violently seizing control of the White House and holding the President of the United States hostage, cable channel TBS edited clips of the film to make it seem like fictitious national security officials were relieved and thrilled by that prospect. A not-so-subtle reference to the current occupant of the Oval Office, Donald Trump.
In an exchange on June 23, MSNBC Morning Joe Hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough went on a rapid fire, rambling analogy rant, comparing President Trump to a developing dictator, the leader of North Korea, and the bumbling, buffoonish Nazis of a 60s TV sitcom.
So much for those calls for civility in the wake of the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise. On Thursday, Democratic Senator and progressive hero Elizabeth Warren disgustingly accused the Republicans of funding their health care bill with “blood money” and “paying for tax cuts with American lives.” Surely the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks would condemn such language in this new era of civility right? Well not exactly.
The journalists at CBS and NBC have found a new Donald Trump “outrage” to hyperventilate over: The President drove his golf cart onto a green at one of the courses he owns. This, according to CBS This Morning guest host David Westin, is a “mortal sin.” Matt Lauer insisted he was “gasping” over video of Trump.
On Friday, while both NBC’s Today and ABC’s Good Morning America provided full reports on left-wing actor Johnny Depp joking about assassinating President Trump, CBS This Morning could only manage 45 seconds of air time out of its two-hour broadcast to mention the latest outrageous celebrity outburst.
In an article posted yesterday, Salon politics writer Chauncey DeVega trashed Republican Rep. Steve Scalise as a "bigot" and accused the Republican party of being a "sociopathic" entity that has "weaponized" the Scalise shooting and is "drunk on conspiracy theories and other hallucinogenic beliefs." He also repeated the discredited claim that Scalise spoke to a "white supremacist" group in 2002, and even went so far as to claim that he was an "honored guest" for the racist group.
Last Week Tonight’s John Oliver is facing a lawsuit after yet another angry diatribe. This time, the HBO host targeted the coal industry and one its top CEOs. Oliver has a long history of assailing conservatives and Christians as “racist,” “evil” “Islamophobes.” The comic has mocked the United States electoral process as a “four-year-old’s birthday” and Donald Trump as “viscerally horrifying.”
Republican Senators released the draft of their replacement for the failing ObamaCare program on Thursday, and with it came the wrath of the liberal media. “The veil finally lifted today on the draft of a health care bill written in secret…,” chided Anchor Lester Holt to begin NBC Nightly News. Despite the bill keeping their favorite parts of ObamaCare, they chastised it while at the same time casting blame on President Trump for ObamaCare’s death-spiral.
The mainstream media doesn’t understand pro-life Americans. They think you’re either stupid, uninformed, or some bizarre religious troglodyte opposing progress to satiate a deep lust for misogyny. Nowhere was this more evident than in Thursday morning’s bizarre tag team effort between the hosts on MSNBC Live with Velshi and Ruhle.
During Thursdays audio-only White House daily briefing, deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders received a question from CBS Radio News that touted far-left Senate protesters that have claimed that the proposed Senate Republican health care bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare would cause people to die.
Throughout her 12 p.m. ET hour show on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell hyped an orchestrated left-wing protest outside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office on Capitol Hill as spelling certain doom for any Republican attempt to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
