The liberal media grew increasingly excited at the prospects of impeaching President Trump over the weekend. So much so, that some were outright encouraging Democrats to pursue it. During an appearance on Sunday’s Meet the Press, Princeton University professor Eddie Glaude Jr. warned Democrats that if they didn’t impeach Trump, then they’ll be punished by their radical liberal base.
Michael Isikoff, Chief Investigative Correpondent of Yahoo News, is unable to find any real proof of Trump-Russia collusion based on the latest court filings by Special Counsel Robert Mueller when he appeared on CNN's December 8 Smerconish show. But first, Isikoff agreed with Smerconish on the appearance of Democratic hypocrisy on impeaching over sex. Rep. Jerrold Nadler "eloquently" argued Clinton shouldn't be impeached for lying to conceal an affair with an intern. So how is Nadler going to impeach using sketchy witnesses like Stormy Daniels and Michael Avenatti?
According to recent court filings, President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen told federal prosecutors that he was directed by the then-candidate to pay hush money to two women to help sway the outcome of the 2016 election. Even though Cohen admitted he had previously lied under oath to Congress, ABC and NBC spent part of their Sunday morning news programs suggesting it was all over for the Trump administration.
On CNN's New Day on Sunday, Michael Moore, a former Obama-appointed U.S. and Democrat state senator in Georgia, boasted: "you're hearing sort of the death rattle of this presidency, of this administration. I don't know that we need to call the undertaker yet, but it's certainly time to pick out the cemetery."
The Right Scoop professed surprise that CNN morning anchor Christine Romans reported on the latest unemployment figures without the usual agony over the Trump administration.The jobs number was "weaker than expected," they said. But Romans suggested the expectations were too high at this "very low" unemployment rate:
The December 7 episode of Speechless on ABC, ‘F-O-Follow T-H-R-Through’ involves the DiMeo family seeking to get it together and finish plans for past projects. For middle child, Ray DiMeo (Mason Cook), this means following through on building "an accessible playground for kids with all abilities" known as J.J.’s Dream, named after his brother with cerebral palsy. Showing no good deed goes unpunished, Ray finds he has plenty of lines, red tape and petty government bureaucrats to go through first.
During the Friday edition of CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront, the eponymous host and her panel reacted to the latest developments in the Trump-Russia investigation, with a litany of memos on both Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort being released by the U.S. District of Southern New York and the Mueller team. As a whole, the panel seemed convinced that the memos may represent the smoking gun needed to take down President Trump. Not surprisingly, Nixon administration White House counsel and beloved CNN talking head John Dean found himself firmly in the pro-impeachment camp.
Joy Behar was furious. Furious! Why? It seems that following the death of President George H. W. Bush, View co-host Joy Behar wanted to say something nice about the late president, and settled on a comment about his signing of an amendment to the Clean Air Act in 1990. Said she, as reported here in on NewsBusters:
Appearing as a panel member on Saturday's Up with David Gura on MSNBC, NBC contributor and frequent Meet the Press panelist Heather McGhee gave signs of being far inside the liberal bubble when she lamented that Attorney General nominee Bill Barr has a history of wanting to lock up more criminals as she claimed that currently "the entire country is very excited" about reducing the number of prison inmates.
She also asserted that pro-life opposition to Roe vs Wade is "far outside of the mainstream" even though polling suggests significant restrictions on abortion are supported by most Americans.
He can't save the Arizona Cardinals from a losing season, but progressive rookie quarterback Josh Rosen wants to save the world from so-called global warming. In Frank Schwab's Yahoo Sports story, Rosen is an Al Gore sound-alike who says the debate on climate change is over and the only question is if the earth will survive with humans on it. Schwab ignored Rosen's politics, but the tactless athlete has also been seen playing golf while wearing an "F Trump" hat -- at the Trump National Golf Club.
Conservatives note that an avowed anti-Semite like Louis Farrakhan maintains a Twitter account while a gaggle of conservatives no longer do. Think Anthony Cumia, Owen Benjamin, Roger Stone, Sabo, “Gay Patriot” Bruce Carroll, Gavin McInnes and Laura Loomer. Former Republican candidate Jesse Kelly became the most recent example.
Liberal journalists don’t like conservatives bringing up religion and faith, but it’s apparently okay for them to insist God supports Democratic political opinions. On December 4, 2013, then-MSNBC host Ed Schultz weighed in on what God thinks about ObamaCare: “I’ll tell you what I think God thinks of the Affordable Care Act. It’s a big ‘amen.’”
To offer a different interpretation, reader WKRP took the view that McQuade was not suggesting that President Trump be stripped of his citizenship, but that he be removed from office if he obtained the presidency via fraud. If indeed that's what McQuade meant, she found a roundabout means of saying so. But this writer acknowledges this as a plausible alternative interpretation of her remark.
New York Times’ Susan Chira, a “senior correspondent and editor on gender issues,” interviewed Anita Hill for some reason for Friday’s paper, “Hill Reflects: ‘Clearly the Tide Has Not Turned.’” Hill is seen by the press as a victim of both Clarence Thomas and the all-white, all-male Senate Judiciary Committee who brutally questioned her and has achieved secular sainthood, so there are never any inconvenient questions. Interviewing and citing Hill in the aftermath of sexual allegations against Republicans is a regular thing at the paper now. This one is keyed to the accusations hurled against now-Judge Brett Kavanaugh, whom the paper promises “we’re still investigating.”
On Thursday, The New York Times published an op-ed arguing that mental health professionals should abandon treating gender dysphoria, the condition most typically associated with transgenderism, as a mental disorder.
