Even to the untrained eye, it is still very obvious that CNN is a mouthpiece for the Democratic Party. A former employee of the network and current radio host Chris Plante joined Thursday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight to discuss the corruption that has seeped into the foundation of the liberal media outlet.
Straight off the heels of night two, round two of the Democratic presidential primary debates, Daily Show host Trevor Noah offered his insights live with MSNBC political analyst and former Obama pollster, Cornell Belcher. Towards the end of the discussion, Belcher took the opportunity to scrutinize CNN for their somewhat incendiary debate format: "I don't want to beat up on CNN, but I'm going to beat up on CNN a little bit. The way they set it up, they almost set it up so there would be contention....I don't think that was particularly helpful and I certainly hope we won't see that again."
Not even a Democratic debate could distract the leftist late-night loon Stephen Colbert from trashing on President Trump late Tuesday night. Colbert welcomed Jeff Daniels on The Late Show where he became the latest in a series of actors on the program to make a vile comment towards the President, including the hope that Trump’s opponent can “punch him in the face.”
Let the clown games recommence! Tuesday marked night one of the second round of Democratic presidential primary debates and late-night leftist zealot Trevor Noah did not waste any time on The Daily Show following the debates to crown two candidates victorious for their performances.
As the Mueller testimony unfolded last Wednesday, the Russian collusion narrative was exposed and shattered to the dismay of the very media who perpetuated it. The deflation on the faces of cable news hosts’ was evident as the day went on. Greg Gutfeld pinpointed this disappointment during his monologue on Friday’s The Five.
For two years, the liberal media have convinced themselves and their Democrat buddies that Russian collusion took place in the 2016 election. On Friday night’s Hannity, fill-in host Jason Chaffetz spoke with The Hill’s Joe Concha and Fox News contributor Charlie Hurt on the mass Russia hysteria fueled by the press.
Elitist, left-wing celebrities have been at the forefront of the resistance movement in opposition to President Trump throughout his presidency. From Kathy Griffin’s severed Trump head to Madonna fantasizing about blowing up the White House, beyond-the-pale behavior from Hollywood has become the norm. However, on the Friday edition of CBS's The Late Show, actor John Leguizamo took the cake for perhaps the strangest critique of the President yet.
The network newscasts reacted to the elevation of Boris Johnson as Britain’s prime minister in the same way they did to Donald Trump: Shock and horror. Media elites are still scratching their heads as to how this series of events has come about, concluding the reason must be steeped in racism. Among them is none other than Late Show host Stephen Colbert.
Although many Americans have cooled down and are no longer feeling the “bern” this election cycle, Bernie Sanders continues to tour the liberal late-night circuit to make the case for his Presidential bid. The latest stop on the campaign trail was Thursday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! where Kimmel fawned over Sanders with agreement and softballs.
It’s hard to see the Mueller hearings on Wednesday as anything other than a disaster for liberals in politics and in the media. Yet, Stephen Colbert further cemented his status as a “resistance” backer as he defended Mueller on Wednesday night’s The Late Show. Colbert berated Chris Wallace to the point that the Fox News host shot back: “You’re part of the anti-Trump tribe.”
Civility has not proven to be a strong suit for members of the Democratic Party or their friends in the left wing media. From CNN’s Don Lemon comparing President Trump to Hitler to the relentless racial smears on the President and his supporters, the press are the last people who should be lecturing the rest of the country on being cordial.
There comes a time when everyone needs to take a holiday, so it would behoove Chris Matthews to heed this advice soon. Seeing as this past week of Hardball has proven to be a stumbling block for new, creative ways to insult President Trump, Wednesday night’s episode followed the same, banal pattern.
If there ever was a shining diamond in the leftist media that person would be Greg Gutfeld. True to form, Gutfeld untangled, on Tuesday night’s episode of The Five, the interchangeable web of the media and the liberal allies by mocking their collective mass hysteria over President Trump’s latest tweets.
You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. It seems this adage encompasses the entirety of Chris Matthews’ programming on Hardball. There is no nuance in labeling President Trump as a racist, however that does not deter Matthews from partaking in this practice as a routine. In fact, Tuesday night’s Hardball episode could be seen as a rerun to those who are not loyal viewers.
A quick flashback to election night of 2016 would bring to the forefront memories of an earth shattering defeat for the liberal media and an ensuing shock. There is no need to reminisce on this moment if you are an avid viewer of Hardball with Chris Matthews where the meltdown over President Trump’s occupancy in office persists on a nightly basis. Monday night’s episode was no different.
A war of words took to new heights on Monday between President Trump and four freshmen House Democrats when the President responded to attacks directed at him from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Ilhan Omar (MN), Ayanna Pressley (MA), and Rashida Tlaib (MI). On CNN’s The Situation Room, Wolf Blitzer could hardly wait to pounce on the race card and made CNN part of the story after the women held a press conference.
The big tech censorship of conservative content and influencers across all social media platforms has raised questions about the impact the internet has on restricting free speech. To discuss the silencing of ideas that dissent from social media companies’ liberal worldviews, President Trump held a social media summit with prominent names in the conservative movement at the White House on Thursday afternoon. And surprise, surprise, talk show host Jimmy Kimmel let it be known he was unimpressed.
The leftist media seeks to vilify those who support conservative ideals and glorify all who oppose them. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R), has felt the wrath of the press for decades so it’s not surprising that the liberal media are pulling out all the stops for his Democratic opponent Amy McGrath.
It is typical for a late-night host to take a hiatus from filming during June and July. While Trevor Noah is taking a breather from his relentless attacks on conservatives, his show continues to perpetrate spitefulness with its filler episodes. Monday night's show just re-ran a bunch of their "In the FoxHole" segments mocking Fox News.
If President Trump walked on water, the headline would be Trump can’t swim. Most are familiar with this joke because the underlying sentiment behind it is essentially the truth. Once the liberal media gets wind of President Trump’s position on an issue, they actively go against it. On his Tuesday night show, Fox News host Tucker Carlson highlighted the most recent example of this in the pages of The Washington Post.
