Latest from Aiden Jackson
The publication of a vitriolic book against President Trump has become a rite of passage for a card-holding member of the leftist media elite. Washington Post reporters’ Carol Leonnig and Phillip Rucker are the latest to join in the not-so-exclusive club of anti-Trump, press credentialed authors. The two appeared on Wednesday’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, aired early Thursday morning, to discuss their newest book, Very Stable Genius, in the midst of the Impeachment trial.
At the Media Research Center, we know a thing or two about singling out liberal bias in the press. Therefore, it's always refreshing when a sitting member of Congress corroborates the existence of such bias. In this spirit, Senator Martha McSally appeared on Thursday’s Ingraham Angle to discuss her recent encounter with CNN reporter Manu Raju.
What must it be like to live in a constant state of agony due to your own erratic and irrational thoughts? One would need to pose this question to TBS host Samantha Bee, as she is well versed in the field of Trump Derangement Syndrome. Bee’s latest TDS episode occurred on Wednesday’s edition of Full Frontal.
Hollywood, the land where political variance from liberal doctrine is viewed as nothing short of heresy. When a pseudo-celebrity utilizes their moment in the spotlight to make a leftist decree, you can bet it is on a late-night program. This is precisely what transpired on Tuesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live with actress Ilana Glazer.
The media meltdown over Iranian terrorist Soleimani’s death continues to spiral into an abyss of delusion. Not unlike his colleagues in the liberal press, CBS host Stephen Colbert spent a portion of his interview with Senator Bernie Sanders on Thursday’s The Late Show excoriating President Trump for his executive decision to annihilate Soleimani.
Those of us who were not living under rocks during the Obama Administration would quickly recall the $1.7 billion in cash transferred to Iran on American planes in 2016, leaving the terrorist-ridden government awash in currency. NBC host Seth Meyers exposed his naiveté of the Iran nuclear deal on Wednesday’s Late Night when he denied the massive cash flow to the country took place.
The perpetual hurricane of lunacy engulfing the liberal media in the age of President Trump never abates. Following the demise of Iran’s Soleimani, the press took the President to task for the military operation while humanizing the depraved terrorist in the same breath. The Hill’s Joe Concha appeared on Saturday’s Fox and Friends to discuss the swooning coverage of Soleimani, specifically from The New York Times.
The media have a less than stellar track record when it comes to their assessments of heinous, murderous leaders. Such was the case in 2017, when Time magazine referred to the now-deceased Iranian terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani as “James Bond, Erwin Rommel and Lady Gaga rolled into one.”
When it comes to the leftist media, their disdain for and ignorance towards Christians is palpable. Unless of course, they stumble upon a Christian with liberal positions because that way they can be utilized as a tool to suit their political narrative. If you fit the bill, may the love fest commence! ABC was the latest network guilty of this nauseating posturing.
In times of stark national polarization, one can always count on late-night host Stephen Colbert to further cement that divide, as he did on Wednesday’s Late Show in cheering for impeachment. At the very least, however, he was honest in calling out Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for her fraudulent display of somberness during the impeachment vote earlier in the day.
Listening to MSNBC’s Chris Matthews reverential description of impeachment on Wednesday, evidently Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s “prayerful” demeanor is rubbing off on her fellow Democrats. Swept up in the excitement of the House preparing to vote to impeach President Trump, the Hardball host labeled the partisan process “sacramental.”
Everyone should find a person that looks at them the way Stephen Colbert looks at Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. On Thursday’s Late Show, Colbert did everything short of throwing rose petals at Pelosi’s feet as he opened his show with a fawning video tribute to his idol.
Hollywood, a town known for many things, not among them being intellectual diversity. A communications arm of the Democratic Party for decades, it is nearly impossible to turn on the television or go to a cinema without being bombarded by leftist talking points. However, Trevor Noah seemed to suggest otherwise on Thursday’s The Daily Show with guest John Lithgow.
Senator Elizabeth Warren has learned first-hand that albeit unusual, even members of her leftist cohort, aka late-night hosts, are capable of asking tough questions when it pertains to Medicare for All. The latest to do just that was Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday’s Tonight Show.
High crimes and misdemeanors what? If you thought MSNBC hosts were severely lacking in their constitutional knowledge before, you have not heard Ari Melber’s latest commentary. During Wednesday’s MSNBC impeachment special coverage, Melber tried to change the standards for impeachment by claiming that no crime is needed for the President to be removed from office.
As of late, The New York Times has cemented itself as the CNN of the newspaper world with a leftist trajectory and near total loss of journalistic integrity. On Monday’s Fox & Friends to discuss this travesty of modern day investigative reporting was former New York Times contributor and current New York Post reporter, Michael Goodwin.
Careful Colbert, your impeachment excitement is showing again. Many are aware of Senator Kamala Harris’ controversial legal track record from her tenure as California’s Attorney General. However, Colbert acted as though he had yet to receive this memo as he requested Harris’ prosecutorial input into the impeachment inquiry on Thursday’s The Late Show.
Womp. Womp. Chris Cuomo has a law degree, right? What’s that rule about not asking questions you don’t know the answer to? The award for CNN’s most cringe worthy moment (as of all day Wednesday) goes to none other Cuomo after he tried to prove the case against Donald Trump.
They're two of a kind! Tuesday’s Late Night With Seth Meyers proved to be more reminiscent of an Al Gore fundraising event than an entertaining television program as the two men yukked it up over climate change and President Trump.
Due process has become a thing of the past in the minds of the liberal media. Fake news anchor Michael Che underlined this during the Weekend Update segment on the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live.
