FX’s Mayans M.C. has been a wild card of issues as far as TV goes. We’ve jumped from wall jabs to racist border enforcers to abortion all within seven episodes. This latest week, however, gets us back to what’s really important: taking down Trump.
Once again, CW’s Black Lightning is playing politics. First the series claimed the police are straight-up murdering black kids, and now they're going after George W. Bush. And here I thought Trump jokes were getting old!
President Trump drew widespread condemnation from the liberal media on Tuesday after he put out a tweet describing porn star Stormy Daniels as having a “horseface” following news that a judge threw out a defamation suit she filed against him. And during CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, the bitter banter between Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon (not exactly the epitome of civility) devolved into shots at Trump for not being a looker.
Fox’s The Gifted has clearly opted for a left-leaning perspective this season, and it unfortunately seems like this trend won’t end anytime soon. That’s why this one scene in the latest episode of the X-Men series took me by surprise. In a brief moment, the show reminded us about the innate value of human life, even in the womb.
So Sen. Elizabeth Warren has announced she commissioned a DNA test to address her long-standing claims to have Cherokee ancestry. The Boston Globe reported Warren’s DNA analysis “suggests she’s between 1/64th and 1/1,024th Native American.”The fraction 1/1024 works out to 0.09 percent. So since Sen. Warren is .09 percent Indian, she may now be eligible to own .09 percent of a casino.
In a disturbing example of just how far down the gutter they had sunk, Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News featured back-to-back reports hyping opponents of President Trump deriding him and First Lady Melania Trump in a sexual manner. In sharp contrast, their broadcast network competitors CBS Evening News and ABC’s World News Tonight were classy enough to leave the low brow attacks out of their programs.
Ever since HLN debuted as CNN2 on January 1, 1982, the cable television channel has been on a roller coaster ride that led to the announcement on Tuesday that the network is immediately cutting back on its live programming in favor of virtually all taped shows. The transition was already apparent on the same day, when Morning Express with Robin Meade was followed by a rerun of How It Really Happened with Hill Harper instead of a live edition of Across America with Carol Costello.
Although Hollywood’s political donors’ demographics and strategies are shifting, their direction — left — certainly isn’t. The Hollywood Reporter published an in-depth look at how liberal Hollywood’s “GOP loathing” has them more involved than ever this year, even as the makeup of Tinseltown’s political givers shifts from a cadre of liberal, old, white men, to a younger and more racial diverse crowd of liberals. One source told THR this year’s Hollywood spending will “blow away” previous midterms.
While many even in the liberal media have derided Elizabeth Warren’s botched attempt to justify and explain her claim of having Native American history, Time magazine is digging in and defending the liberal Senator. In a Tweet on Tuesday, the news weekly insisted, “Elizabeth Warren's DNA test shows how she's weaponizing transparency.”
Clifford Harris, who bears the moniker T.I. in the rap world, saw his last chart success almost five years ago. But he’s been getting notoriety lately for his political musings, such as the belief that white politicians who plan to legalize marijuana are “Righteous Decent White People” who use “their privilege to make a difference.”
Appearing on Tuesday’s Megyn Kelly Today, NBC News reporter Morgan Radford attempted to defend Massachusetts Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren’s dubious claim of Native American heritage by arguing that the liberal lawmaker “understood” it to be true. Meanwhile, anchor Megyn Kelly blasted Warren for using the claims of minority status to advance her academic career.
So much for Twitter being the “free speech wing of the free speech party.” Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey couldn’t have distanced himself further from that famous 2012 quote. He told a “Wired 25” audience Tuesday that the original quote “was a joke.”
In 2012, then-Twitter UK General Manager Tony Wang told a media summit that the company tried to be “neutral” because of its principles. "Generally, we remain neutral as to the content because our general counsel and CEO like to say that we are the free speech wing of the free speech party," he explained.
Co-host Meghan McCain called out her liberal co-hosts and Democrats for defending Senator Elizabeth Warren, on Tuesday’s The View, after Warren released DNA test results showing she greatly exaggerated her Native American heritage. After Whoopi Goldberg went out of her way to defend Warren’s claims, and Joy Behar claimed Warren’s tall tale didn’t matter, McCain argued that they and their fellow Democrats would’ve been singing a different tune had a Republican made these same claims about heritage.
The ‘anti-immigrant’ label – typically used by liberal media outlets to tar those who either speak uncomfortable truths about illegal immigration or who simply support the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws – reared its ugly head again on Univision and Telemundo, this time as a result of Republican Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner speaking about the downside of illegal immigration in the city of Chicago.
After a bizarre, early-presidential ploy by presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren involving a DNA test, the online headline over the New York Times story spun mightily on her behalf: “Elizabeth Warren’s DNA Results Put Trump on Defensive, but Also Raise Questions,” by Jonathan Martin. Martin tried to link Trump’s anti-Warren “Pocahontas” jibe to the tawdry “birther” issue, though in this case Trump’s mockery is based in fact.
