MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace couldn’t help but make the 18 year anniversary of the deadliest terror attack on American soil about herself and her peers in the press. In a tweet Wednesday evening, Wallace admitted the first thing she thinks about on this solemn day of remembrance, is how the press is under attack by President Trump.



Prolific horror fiction novelist Stephen King appeared on ABC’s The View, Wednesday to plug his newest book The Institute, about a group of teens with supernatural abilities who are kidnapped by a group of zealots, locked up and experimented on. While King claimed he left politics out of his stories, he connected the Trump administration “locking up kids in cages” as making his fictional novel, come to life.



Tuesday on The View, the hosts spun a comment President Trump made about criminals entering the U.S., as another example of how Trump hated black people. While answering a reporter’s question about hurricane refugees, he warned we had to be careful about letting in “very bad people” such as “drug dealers” and “gang members” into the country. View co-host Whoopi Goldberg complained that this was clearly a racist statement about everyone who lived in the Bahamas.



It’s nearly impossible for The View co-host Joy Behar to keep her anti-Trump anxieties to herself, on the rare occasion a Republican guest comes to the show. Even when there is no reason to, Behar finds a way to insert Trump into the conversation. On Monday’s show, this happened again as retiring Republican congressman Rep. Sean Duffy appeared with his wife Rachel Campos-Duffy to discuss his retirement and their growing family. All The View co-host could think about, however, was how Trump was destroying the environment.

 


An argument broke out on Friday’s The View, between co-hosts Meghan McCain and Whoopi Goldberg, over whether Bernie Sanders and other 2020 Democrats were pushing eugenics as a way to combat climate change. Whoopi fiercely defended Sanders’ promoting abortion as a way to slow population growth, even claiming that the eugenics movement had nothing to do with minorities or birth control.



Thursday on The View, the liberal co-hosts gushed over 2020 candidate South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigeg attacking Christians about the climate, during his CNN town hall late Wednesday. The same View hosts who hate God being brought into the topic of abortion, loved that Democrats were bringing God into climate change.



2020 Democrat candidate, Senator Bernie Sanders was guest on ABC’s The View Wednesday, where he was praised for his radical socialist politics being more popular than they were just four years ago. After co-host Abby Huntsman asked him if the media treated Biden fairly next to Trump, co-host Meghan McCain pressed him on what Republicans in Congress he would actually work with, as POTUS.



ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Robin Roberts and Michael Strahan couldn’t stop fawning over Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hobnobbing with her celebrity friends, on Good Morning America Wednesday. Actress Tracee Ellis Ross was on the show and gushed about how Ocasio-Cortez eases her “deep anxiety and concern” for the country under the current administration.



The View co-host Sunny Hostin was angry on Monday’s show, at the news that rapper Jay-Z had partnered with the NFL as an adviser for its “social justice initiatives,” without Colin Kaepernick’s consent. She was also outraged at Jay-Z’s statement that blacks were “past kneeling,” in protest at police brutality, calling it “ridiculous” “inappropriate” and “insensitive” because apparently police force was a “leading” cause of death among young black men in the United States.

 


Co-host Whoopi Goldberg began the first show of The View’s new season displaying a more libertarian stance on hot-button issues such as gun rights and free speech. After suggesting that we didn’t need more gun laws, but needed to close the loopholes in our current laws at the beginning of the show, she went on to make an impassioned plea for her fellow actors in Hollywood to stop blacklisting Trump supporters.



Will and Grace actress Debra Messing tweeted support for an Alabama Baptist church this weekend but not because she had some sudden religious awakening. Instead, Messing agreed with the liberal church’s provocative sign which called black Trump voters “mentally ill.”



Montgomery County, Maryland’s liberal leaders are defending their lax treatment of illegal immigrant crime, after ICE revealed that seven illegal immigrants have been arrested for sexual assault in the past six weeks, alone. Unbelievably, the networks could find no time at all to cover even one of the stories of children being violently assaulted in completely preventable crimes.



CNN Tonight host Don Lemon criticized fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo Thursday night for bringing pro-Trump guest Kayleigh McEnany on his show the night before. Lemon argued CNN shouldn’t be a platform for “liars” like McEnany while he defended the media as truth-tellers who “apologize” and retract reports when they “get it wrong.”



A new poll from Rasmussen Reports reveals most Americans believe that journalists are more liberal than they are, and deserve scrutiny, despite the fervent objections from The New York Times. There’s even more bad news for the liberal media: the majority also agreed President Trump’s attacks on the press were “appropriate.”



On CNN’s New Day Thursday morning, the network ended the 8am EST hour with a gooey segment hyping Kamala Harris as essentially the next [female] Barack Obama. Correspondent Kyung Lah went to a Harris 2020 rally and spoke only to minority families, touting how girls and families were “inspired” by the biracial Harris, running for President.



All three networks couldn’t stop gushing over pop star Taylor Swift’s liberal awakening on full display at last night’s MTV Video Music Awards. While accepting an award, the singer called on the White House to respond to a Change.org petition to pass the “equality act” a federal level law banning “discrimination” against transgender and gay people. ABC, NBC and CBS gave Swift the royalty treatment, praising her “powerful” and “intelligent” speech and “transformation” embracing the left.



After spending a segment complaining the media wasn’t anti-Trump enough, Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter went on to assist April Ryan in blaming the President for her own controversial behavior. The CNN analyst broke her silence Sunday, giving her first interview to Stelter after her bodyguard was charged with assault for violently evicting a journalist who was covering an event Ryan was speaking at, earlier this month. Ryan defended her reputation as a free press advocate, while at the same time excusing the incident as an unfortunate result of fears for her own safety in the “Trump age,” a claim that Stelter eagerly touted.



CNN seems intent on destroying any credibility they have left with the public. With three of its personalities, Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo and April Ryan all facing scandals for their behavior off-camera, and the network firing two of its few remaining conservative commentators, network execs thought it was the perfect time to add a disgraced leftist government official on as contributor.



Well you don’t see this happen very often. The Washington Post hammered CNN Thursday, for shamelessly ignoring an ugly story involving their political analyst, April Ryan. After her bodyguard was charged with assaulting a journalist, whom Ryan ejected from an event she was speaking at, even her liberal peers had enough. Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple bluntly demanded Ryan, address the hypocrisy, “or relinquish your standing as First Amendment champions.”



Some activists on the left, like to claim it’s easier to buy a gun in America than it is to buy cold medicine. One journalist found how wrong that was and actually published her investigation, despite it not fitting into the media's narrative. Business Insider’s Hayley Peterson wanted to know how difficult it would be for her to buy a gun at a Walmart in Virginia, after the superstore chain faced pressure from Democrats to stop selling firearms.
