Latest from Kristine Marsh
As the congressional impeachment testimony hearing took a short recess mid-Wednesday, the liberal networks jumped in with their own reflections, but seemingly one takeaway: William Taylor was impressive, definitely not partisan, and wow, he sounds just like us!
In the minutes before the network’s live coverage started on day one of the impeachment hearings Thursday, ABC was already trying to discredit Republicans and their concerns as embarrassing "theatrics." ABC’s congressional correspondent Mary Bruce couldn’t help but get some digs in against Republicans even before the hearing started.
The hosts of one of the most left-leaning shows on television argued, with complete sincerity, about who qualifies as a conservative, on Tuesday’s The View. Co-host Meghan McCain clashed with her liberal co-host Joy Behar after Behar praised anti-Trump columnist Max Boot as a “conservative” “Republican” that “everyone should read.”
If you thought a party that embraces socialism, has a religious devotion to environmentalism, believes in open borders and celebrates abortions to the point of birth was pretty radical, why, you’re just imagining things, according to CNN. CNN’s John Avlon explained to his audience on Tuesday’s New Day, that it isn’t Democrats who have become too extreme, it’s Republicans.
The pompous “Democracy Dies in Darkness” paper published an opinion piece Nov. 7 that was so opposed to reality, you had to wonder if it was a joke. The article entitled, “Can Republicans relearn how to accept political outcomes they don’t like?” wasn’t a joke, even though it would’ve fit in perfectly as a satire piece for The Babylon Bee.
There’s no question guests Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle completely “triggered” the hosts of The View Thursday, as the president’s son was there, ironically to promote his book of the same title. The food fight continued for nearly thirty minutes, finally culminating with Trump shocking hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg by calling out their own controversies.
Well this was definitely a show for the record books. Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle sat down at the “hot topics” table on The View Thursday for an explosive discussion. Despite the hosts’ hostile and abusive behavior towards their guests, Trump and Guilfoyle were still able to land some good points about the media’s bias towards President Trump. Trump even called out the View’s network, ABC, for its part in covering up Jeffrey Epstein’s connection to Bill Clinton, during the 2016 election.
The View co-host Joy Behar defends Democrats to the bitter end, except it seems, if that Democrat believes Republicans should be treated with respect. Behar attacked Rep. Tulsi Gabbard when she came on the show Wednesday for daring to appear on “state TV” Fox News, as Behar put it, but Gabbard pushed back against Behar’s nasty attacks.
Liberal activist and actress Jane Fonda received the royal welcome on Tuesday’s The View by the equally fanatical hosts. Fonda was there to discuss her climate change activism which excited Joy Behar, as she tried to win the contest over who could be more hysterical about the state of the earth.
After it was revealed last month that the anonymous “whistleblower” worked for 2020 candidate Joe Biden when he was vice president, ABC squashed the important story calling it a “smear campaign” put out by President Trump. This morning, the media continued trying to protect the whistleblower’s partisan identity, by attacking Republican calls for transparency. On CNN Tuesday morning, a panel trashed Sen. Rand Paul’s “deeply deceptive and underhanded” demand that the media do their job and publicly identify the whistleblower who’s complaint launched this whole impeachment inquiry.
While Beto O’Rourke’s radically left policies made him a media favorite and garnered him praise from former President Obama, clearly his policies didn’t sit well with many Americans. As his poll numbers dropped and money stopped pouring into his presidential campaign, he decided to drop out of the 2020 race, this past Friday. Monday, the co-hosts of The View blamed a myriad of reasons for his downfall, but Joy Behar proclaimed his real problem was being too open and honest with middle America about his left-wing agenda.
This afternoon on MSNBC, hosts and climate change propagandists Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle sat back and stayed silent as their Democrat guest made an absurdly comical declaration about climate change. While discussing the flooding in New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo told the hosts the natural disaster was not only due to climate change, but they never had these natural disasters before.
Just when you think things can’t get any more ridiculous on The View, the hosts spend a segment complaining about the President’s son’s Halloween costume as being insensitive to animals, on Friday’s show. The co-hosts also complained about a 2020 television ad put out by the President, which Joy Behar declared was full of paid actors “just like the ones who go to his rallies.”
On CNN’s New Day Friday, co-hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Avlon brought on former Clinton White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart to praise how his former boss behaved during his impeachment process, as compared to President Trump. The liberal journalists also griped that Republicans were too partisan to get on board with impeachment, something that could’ve been said about the liberal media in the ‘90s.
The media, who is so eager to bash President Trump at every turn they can’t even give him credit when he kills a murderous terrorist, also can’t seem to take a joke. Wednesday morning, Trump retweeted an obviously photoshopped image, of himself placing the medal of honor around the canine who chased down ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in the raid in which he was killed. The medal had a dog paw on it and was made by conservative outlet The Daily Wire.
Wednesday on The View, 2020 presidential candidate Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) was the guest, where he was grilled by co-host Meghan McCain over his radical stance on gun rights. As McCain pressed the Democrat to answer “how” the government was going to get Americans to give up their guns, he floundered and instead suggested it was a right-wing narrative that Democrats were trying to take away your guns.
As wildfires ravage California again, after last year’s deadliest wildfire season on record, the media wants you to remember: This is climate change’s fault. MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi explained this to his liberal audience on Tuesday’s MSNBC Live With Velshi and Ruhle, by touting data from a climate alarmist organization, and not offering any other viewpoints into his explainer segment.
Tuesday on The View, the liberal hosts adamantly defended the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry as an act of patriotism, as co-hosts Abby Huntsman and Meghan McCain complained that both parties were putting party before country. The argument came up as the co-hosts were bashing FNC host Laura Ingraham and guest John Yoo for questioning the loyalty of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who is set to testify against President Trump today over that July phone call with Ukraine’s president, which Democrats hope to impeach Trump over.
Monday, the networks finally noticed the resignation of Democrat representative from California, Katie Hill, after nude photos were leaked of her online revealing she had an affair with one of her female staffers. On ABC’s Good Morning America Tuesday, the network shamelessly defended the Democrat, blaming sexism and “double standards” for women caught in sex scandals.
Even though the left and right came together to celebrate the Obama administration’s victory killing Osama Bin Laden in 2011, the leftists in the media couldn’t do the same for President Trump, when the U.S. military led a raid Saturday that killed prominent ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The anti-Trump hosts of The View Monday were so bitter, that they basically admitted there wasn’t anything Trump could do that would be applauded by them, because he was “tainted.”
