There have been five Democratic primary debates and nine candidates have already dropped out. But not long after the conclusion of the fifth Democratic debate, CNN analysts saved some of their loudest praise for a candidate that didn’t even make it onto the debate stage. In fact, the candidate didn’t announce his candidacy until last week. The candidate many of them were gushing over was former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick.
There’s nothing like a little hardcore abortion talk at a DNC debate to get Hollywood types riled up. After Senator Elizabeth Warren claimed that abortion was a “human right” at the fifth DNC debate, comedian Sarah Silverman applauded her.
Wednesday night’s episode of FXX’s It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, was all about abortion. In one storyline, the gang tries to get an abortion for a dog and, in another, a woman’s right to chop her hair off is debated like abortion. Both are about as crazy and crass as you’d expect from It’s Always Sunny.
Late Wednesday night, MSNBC’s post-2020 Democratic debate panelists were locked and loaded, offering praise for South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s “exceptional” and “pretty flawless debate performance,” the sitting U.S. Senators for having done “very well,” and Cory Booker set to gain in the polls. At the other end, panelists trashed former Vice President Joe Biden for a “colossal gaffe” about African-American women Senators and Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (HI) for being “just awful,” “dishonest,” and “spectacularly bad.”
The 2020 election is less than a year away, so it’s high time for tv to start badmouthing the Trump campaign. For its part, ABC’s new drama Stumptown finally joins the liberal crowd with its own slam against Kellyanne Conway.
Even before the MSNBC Democratic primary debate was finished on Wednesday, CNN was already live with their post-debate analysis. And during a day marked by hours upon hours of televised impeachment hearings, their analysts and commentators discovered that, in many ways, their obsession with impeaching President Trump was hurting their party’s primary process.
The ABC comedy Single Parents has both mocked feminists and tried to turn male characters into them. This week, in the Thanksgiving episode, “Every Thursday Should Be Like This,” on November 20, they had a "woke" public school teacher who greets the children with "Happy Genocide Day."
MSNBC debate moderator Rachel Maddow on Wednesday unloaded both on the state that hosted the 2020 contenders (Georgia) and also a conservative Democratic Governor for daring to be pro-life. She repeatedly badgered Elizabeth Warren over whether there was “room” in the party for someone like John Bel Edwards. But first she led an attack on debate host Georgia, worrying:
What was the big concern for the liberal hosts of MSNBC’s Democratic debate on Wednesday night? Dealing with the nasty Republicans and figuring out ways to convince them to support impeachment. The first half hour of the event was full of queries on impeachment, as well as fretting over being mean to Joe Biden’s son, and reminders that the GOP opposed Barack Obama. Rachel Maddow offered what could be the most obvious question for the assembled 2020 candidates.
Despite how they were dismissive of his truthfulness prior to Wednesday and the fact that he could not directly implicate President Trump in a quid pro quo scheme with Ukraine, ABC, CBS, and NBC heralded the public testimony of E.U. Ambassador Gordon Sondland as a “bombshell” from “the most pivotal witness yet.”
On Wednesday, former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh (D) was indicted on 11 counts of fraud and tax invasion concerning her Healthy Holly book series that had forced her out of office on May 2. If convicted on all counts, she could face 175 years in jail. And while ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News didn’t believe it was worth informing the public about, the CBS Evening News covered it with a one-minute-and-44-second report, but left out the key fact that she was a Democrat.
Shortly before sister network MSNBC debuted a Democratic debate filled with liberal hosts, Wednesday's NBC Nightly News offered yet another PR push for a liberal 2020 candidate with its “What Matters” segment. These stories, which exclusively feature Democrats, feature little-to-no push back.
The liberal media is not known for its deep and abiding respect for the US military. Yet in the opening segment alone of today's Morning Joe, there were no fewer than nine instances of members of the panel referring to Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman as a "hero" or Purple Heart recipient. For good measure, Mike Barnicle melodramatically described him as "wearing the cloth of our country." What accounts for such a sudden onset of hero worship? The answer's obvious: since the Democrats and MSM see Vindman as a key impeachment witness against President Trump, it suits their political purposes to celebrate his status, lending credence to his testimony.
Before Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland gave testimony before the House Intel Committee 's Wednesday impeachment hearing, those occupying the desk on MSNBC's pre-game show could hardly contain their excitement. They eagerly awaited the downfall of the Trump Administration and the schadenfreude that would inevitably come with seeing "Trumpists" react to Sondland's testimony.
They're two of a kind! Tuesday’s proved to be more reminiscent of an Al Gore fundraising event than an entertaining television program as the two men yukked it up over climate change and President Trump.
