To paraphrase the late, great President Ronald Reagan, there they go again! HBO’s sports-centered show Ballers, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, featured yet another anti-Trump T-shirt on Sunday’s episode, “Don’t You Wanna Be Obama?” (The episode title alone gave us a hint that the show might throw in more anti-conservative bias as it’s been known to do in the past.)
The entertainment elites just can’t get enough of painting President Trump and his administration as racists. In the latest episode of Stephen Colbert’s Showtime animated cartoon, Our Cartoon President, President Trump is proudly racist and has to learn to tone down his rhetoric as the campaign for his re-election in 2020 continues.
Sports Illustrated legal writer Michael McCann, an associate dean of law at the University of New Hampshire School of Law, seems to want Colin Kaepernick to win his collusion lawsuit against the NFL just a "little" too badly. And at the expense of Denver Broncos' general manager John Elway. McCann offers eight ways that could happen, but isn't very convincing or objective in his arguments.
On Saturday, both ABC and CNN devoted time to sympathetically hyping the case of an illegal immigrant in Los Angeles who was arrested by ICE agents at a gas station while driving his pregnant wife to the hospital to give birth, and highlighted her claims that her husband had no criminal record. But it turns out that the suspect, Joel Arrona-Lata, is wanted because he is suspected of committing a homicide in Mexico.
When the higher education bubble bursts (and won’t that be a mess -- Gender Studies PHDs and Postcolonial Queer Poetry majors splattered everywhere!), you can still point your offspring down a sound career path. Pull Junior aside, look him purposefully in the eye and say, “Two words: sexbot repair.”
Appearing as a guest on Saturday's AM Joy, former MSNBC host Toure Neblett claimed that the United States "is a white supremacist country" as he discussed whether President Donald Trump is a racist with fill-in host Al Sharpton and Virginia Republican Senate nominee Corey Stewart. Neblett also hyperbolically declared that President Donald Trump "stands on black people's necks."
New York Times reporter Dan Bilefsky took on a right-wing radio host in Quebec, for some reason, on Sunday: “‘Trash Radio’ Host in Quebec City Fires Up Outrage, and Big Ratings.” From the start it was clear this would be no friendly profile like the one’s the Times once filed to to boost liberal radio hosts, like MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow in 2005, back when she hosted a show on the radio network “Air America.”
During Saturday’s edition of The Axe Files With David Axelrod, host David Axelrod sat down with New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet and The Washington Post Executive Editor Marty Baron. The first portion of the interview focused primarily on President Trump and his relationship with the media.
Former Fox News military analyst Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources Sunday morning to recite a litany of vapid leftwing talking points against President Trump. During his interview with Brian Stelter, the nascent Trump derangement sufferer dubbed Fox News “prostitutes” guilty of “assaulting the constitution,” declared that President Trump was “enthralled to Vladimir Putin,” and spitefully smeared Trump supporters as “couch-potato anarchists.”
CNN counterterrorism analyst Philip Mudd has a well-deserved reputation for being unhinged but on Friday's Anderson Cooper 360 (with substitute host Jim Sciutto) he went completely berserk to the extent of trying to kick another comentator off the show that wasn't even his. Before his actual explosion you can see the absolutely fury building up in him as political commentator Paris Dennard was making good points as to why security clearances are profitable for those who hold them.
On Sunday's PoliticsNation, as MSNBC host Al Sharpton devoted his show's "Gotcha" segment to excoriating President Donald Trump for calling former White House advisor Omarosa Manigault Newman a "dog," he also admitted that, in spite of suggestions of being racially motivated, Trump has a history of calling many people, including white men, "dog."
So much for the land of the free! We who oppose protest in sports (see file photo of Philadelphia Eagles' protesters) are really "fascists" and should think about moving to a backwards nation, writes USA Today's Brent Schrotenboer. Furthermore, the man in the White House is engaged in a "fascist frenzy." Standing for the national anthem is indicative of a fascist political philosophy that “exalts nation and often race above the individual," and is symbolic of "a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.”
The New York Times can be relied upon to push government spending everywhere, in all situations, which explains how a story from Northampton, England makes it to its front page on Saturday. The online headline: “As Austerity Helps Bankrupt an English County, Even Conservatives Mutiny.” It’s part of the paper’s series, “Britain’s Big Squeeze,” whose chief villain is spending limits aka “austerity,” which the paper is obsessively trying to discredit.
Does Donald Trump secretly own the Boston Globe? The question comes as the Globe’s call for newspapers to publish anti-Trump editorials was followed by some 350 newspapers around the country. Fox headlined the inevitable and forseeable this way: “Trump accuses The Boston Globe of ‘COLLUSION’ with other papers as hundreds run editorials against him.”
New York Times reporter Astead Herndon seethed over the rapturous reception granted to conservative activist Dinesh D’Souza’s latest documentary, Death of a Nation: “Film Likens Democrats To Nazis, to Big Applause.” Compare that horrified evisceration to the rapturous, unchallenging reception the paper gave far-left documentarian Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9-11, his anti-Bush conspiratorial release in 2004.
