In what is shocking news, the leftist dynamic duo of MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and CBS’s Stephen Colbert had a field day being in the company of one another on Tuesday’s The Late Show. So much so, that Colbert dedicated half of his hour time slot to hosting Maddow for essentially what was a Trump-bashing gossip session.
Two minds who think alike are not necessarily great. This sentiment was never as true as when MSNBC’s Chris Hayes joined fellow leftist pal Seth Meyers on Monday’s Late Night for a jovial conversation on their shared disdain for President Trump.
Following last week’s somewhat pressing interview (compared to softball questions Democrats usually get from the media) between Stephen Colbert and Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator Bernie Sanders followed in his colleague’s footsteps as he appeared on Thursday’s The Late Show, where he was met with the same lineup of probing questions regarding Medicare for All.
Fresh off the heels of Nancy Pelosi announcing an impeachment Inquiry into President Trump, liberals in the media have been giddier than school girls, hoping their dreams of President Trump being ousted from office are one step closer to becoming a reality. So much so that Trevor Noah on Wednesday’s Daily Show could hardly wait to unveil his new segment devoted to celebrating impeachment.
Liberals in the media the past two years seem to be a living rendition of the movie Groundhog Day. The same routine is repeated every day, always ending with an “explosive new scandal” that will supposedly lead to President Trump being ousted from the White House. Tuesday’s Impeachment Inquiry announcement from Nancy Pelosi led to mass celebrations in the media, especially on the part of the liberal late-night host crowd.
The first step on the path to healing is admitting you have a problem. It would behoove Bill Maher to heed this advice. Instead, on Friday’s Real Time, he proceeded to slam others for supposedly exhibiting the behavior that he himself embodies. Feeling a great sense of acrimony has become commonplace in Maher’s studio. This was especially true the other night as Maher unleashed a harangue against Republicans who he asserted are the true victims of Trump derangement syndrome:
Monday’s Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon could have easily been mistaken for a Kamala Harris campaign rally. Being granted a generous portion of the show, Senator Harris pleaded the case for her presidential aspirations to viewers at home and the in-studio audience filled exclusively with college students.
As The New York Times goes into damage control mode following their erroneous Justice Kavanagh hit piece, former Times executive editor Jill Abramson appeared on Fox’s Outnumbered Overtime on Wednesday in an attempt to excuse the paper for leaving key exculpatory evidence out of the initial article. Abramson tried to claim "no one has challenged the basic accuracy of the story that they published." Yes, they have!
Ever wonder why hubris late-night hosts fail to put their money where their mouth is and run for public office? After all, they believe they possess more intelligence than the large swath of the country who voted for President Trump. Alas, Stephen Colbert will likely never grace the world running for any official position. However, he did offer up some advice to 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren on Tuesday’s The Late Show.
While Americans’ observed the 18th anniversary of 9/11 last Wednesday with honor and reflection, Trevor Noah on The Daily Show thought it wise to pontificate on the issue of climate change with 16-year-old “climate activist” Greta Thunberg. As to be expected, Noah’s slobbering interview commenced with heaping praise upon Thunberg for her “courageous” sail boat journey from Britain to New York:
Just how low will the Democrats go? Nobody knows. In the unlikely event you missed Thursday night’s 2020 Democratic Presidential Primary debate, do not fret as liberal late-night sage, Trevor Noah, provided his eagerly anticipated analysis on The Daily Show immediately after the event.
The exploitation of mass shootings on the part of leftist late-night hosts in order to further their gun grabbing agenda has unfortunately become common practice in the aftermath of a tragedy. Thursday’s The Daily Show with Trevor Noah used an unusual, gauche tactic to push for their gun control demands.
MSNBC is dangerously close to treading into the waters of becoming a full-blown conspiracy network, although many will argue they have already drowned. On Wednesday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, The Hill's Joe Concha seemed to think there was little hope of resuscitation for the network after he says they hit rock bottom this past week.
In the wake of the shootings in Dayton and El Paso, the ferocity of vitriol aimed at President Trump has passed the threshold into insanity. On Tuesday’s The Story, Fox News MediaBuzz host Howard Kurtz pointed out the blatantly obvious irony that the media is replicating the same erratic behavior they accuse the President of displaying.
The press hit the lowest of lows (if that wasn’t already surpassed) when they asserted President Trump was responsible for the mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso. They capitalized on the anti-immigrant beliefs held by the El Paso shooter to do so, while evading the leftist ideology of the Dayton killer. On Fox News Tuesday, The Five exposed the stories the liberal media concealed over the weekend in order to further their leftist agenda.
The quintessential example of the leftist double standard is when sanctimonious media elites who are surrounded by armed guards, demand law-abiding gun owners be stripped of their constitutional right to defend themselves. The latest example came when Daily Show host Trevor Noah condemned Fox News for not demanding gun control.
To many in the leftist press, facts don’t matter as much as perception. So long as they perceive President Trump to be the cause of all the world’s problems, any lie can be spouted as truth. Sean Hannity alongside The Hill’s Joe Concha and America First Action Senior Advisor Sean Spicer slammed the utter absurdity of the media’s attempt to connect President Trump to the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton.
Stephen Colbert’s The Late Show has established itself as the prime place for actors in Tinsel Town to rail against President Trump in any way they see fit. The latest to partake in the mockery was British actor Brian Cox on Monday’s program. The topic of discussion centered around Cox’s HBO show Succession, which depicts the family of a media mogul loosely modeled after News Corporation CEO Rupert Murdoch.
It is par for the course to hear demands of gun control from the media in the aftermath coverage of a mass shooting. The leftist brigade of late night hosts’ stood in solidarity Monday night in their opposition to the Second Amendment and calls for stricter gun laws.
When a CNN anchor is pleading with the Democratic Party to dial back on their extreme platform, it's clear how far left the field of 2020 candidates have gone. The once-in-a-lifetime moment of humility and brutal honesty coming from a member of the liberal press was delivered by CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Thursday’s Late Night With Seth Meyers.
