When they’re not busy pushing fake news about President Trump’s immigration policies, the liberal media it touting their fellow #Resistance members’ efforts to oppose it. During Sunday’s Good Morning America, ABC hyped protestors blocking buses leaving a detention center and a hunger strike organized by the Democratic Kennedy family. On top of that, they highlighted Press Secretary Sarah Sanders “feeling the heat” and being booted out of a restaurant.
This week's Edge of Sports podcast by radical leftist Dave Zirin could not have insulted more people. He likened NFL players to victims of the Holocaust and his guest accused the U.S., the world's greatest liberator of the oppressed, of "imperialism." The podcast is sponsored by The Nation, a far Left publication for which Zirin serves as the I-don't-stick-to-sports editor.
In Sunday’s paper, Washington Post “conservative” columnist George Will urges everyone vote for Democrats in the wake of the “carnage” of this week’s immigration debate. He dismissed House Speaker Paul Ryan “and many other Republican lawmakers” for serving as the “president’s poodles.” That charge can easily be thrown back: this column surely makes Will look like the pet puppy of the Jeff Bezos-owned “Democracy Dies in Darkness” paper.
Double standards were on wide display Saturday after a Lexington, Virginia restaurant owner's Friday evening refusal to serve White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The Sanders incident has garnered a great deal of press attention, apparently because the she reacted to the incident on Twitter.
As the dominant liberal media have spent much of the past week fixated on the Trump administration stepping up prosecutions of those who illegally cross the border, MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle dismissed reports of a sharp increase in illegals exploiting unrelated children to try to fraudulently enter the country.
An obviously agenda-driven report on extreme poverty from the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights accuses the U.S. under the Trump administration of, in the UN group's words, "becoming a champion of inequality." It also claims that, because of its policies, "the American dream is rapidly becoming the American illusion." As one might expect, many the press have eagerly relayed the UN group's Trump-blaming findings, even though the statistics undergirding the UN group's efforts predate Donald Trump's inauguration.
The New York Times has collaborated with the luxury Japanese brand Sacai “to give you the slogan T-shirt you might not need, but definitely deserve. Or maybe the other way around? Anyways, it's $300.“ That’s one way to fight red-state populism.
The Washington Post headline was blunt: “‘A blowtorch to the tinder’: Stoking racial tensions is a feature of Trump’s presidency.” Among other things it said this: “President Trump this week likened Hispanic immigrants to vermin. He warned that they would ‘pour into and infest our country.'"
During Friday’s edition of The Lead With Jake Tapper, CNN political analyst Paul Begala reacted to President Trump’s meeting with the “angel moms” (and dads) who have lost their children as a result of crimes committed by illegal immigrants. Begala accused President Trump of “politicizing” these tragedies and using their pain to “divide America.”
On Friday's Cuomo Prime Time, CNN host Chris Cuomo again devoted most of his show to pushing hard from the left on the issue of the Trump administration increasing prosecutions of illegal border crossings. Cuomo and liberal CNN commentator Catherine Rampell again misleadingly claimed legal asylum seekers are also separated from their children even though they usually are not unless there are exceptional circumstances. The CNN host -- who has so far ignored congressional Democrats who have connections to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan -- gave a Democratic member of Congress a forum to accuse the White House of having ties to "white supremacists."
On Wednesday's edition of The Five on Fox news, Juan Williams passed off Peter Fonda's overtly threatening tweet wishing that 12-year-old Barron Trump should "be put in a cage with pedophiles" as "poorly worded." He also claimed that his fellow hosts were "taking delight" in the appearance of Fonda's series of threatening tweets, because talking about them "takes away from the conversation focusing on what President Trump did."
Hollywood loves to mock the Commander in Chief, some leaders more than others. The industry takes a different approach to the First Lady. It’s either hands off completely, an occasional joke lobbed in her direction or a more collaborative connection. Remember when Michelle Obama dropped by Sesame Street to talk nutrition?What about when First Lady Barbara Bush chatted up Big Bird to spread the joy of reading?
Comedian Tom Arnold's funniest performance might have happened on the evening of June 22. He didn't even intend to be funny but his epic meltdown during his interview about the supposed Trump tapes with Poppy Harlow who was substituting for Erin Burnett is destined to be viewed by millions as comedy relief. Besides the hilarious notion that he and former Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen are buddies despite only a chance meeting for a quick selfie photo, Arnold experienced two embarrassingly long brain freezes during the interview.
What can’t Barack Obama do? That’s something liberal journalists wondered for eight years. On June 16, 2009, John Harwood and David Shuster were amazed that the then-President killed a fly. Harwood narrated: “He swatted his hand and he said, “‘I got the sucker.’”
Warped Orwellian media are demanding that former NBA great and current TNT basketball commentator Kevin McHale (at left in photo) lose his job because he attended President Donald Trump's rally in Duluth, Minn., this week. That's right: if you're a Trump supporter, you should not be allowed to work in media!
