If it wasn’t already clear that Stephen Colbert has contempt for Trump voters, the Late Show host made it obvious on Thursday night. A cartoon that opened the show mocked Trump-voting farmers as dumb, drunk hicks who deserve to suffer. The host turned the Mother Goose nursery rhyme “Farmer in the Dell” into an R-rated cartoon accusing the President of hurting farmers with his new tariffs during his trade war with China.
On Thursday's Amanpour and Company on PBS, host Christiane Amanpour spent more than 20 minutes covering newly passed laws restricting abortion in a number of states, but only heard from the pro-abortion side as she spoke with liberal activist Gloria Steinem for almost 10 minutes, and then Planned Parenthood member, Dr. David Eisenberg, who performs abortions in Missouri.
Just when it seemed The Guardian couldn’t become even more biased on climate issues than it already was, it announced updates to its “style guide” to even more extreme language on the subject.
The British paper announced on May 17, it now prefers “climate emergency, crisis or breakdown” to the phrase “climate change.” It also said “‘global heating’ is favoured over ‘global warming,’” but did not ban the other phrases.
Not only is white supremacy banned on Facebook, but any sort of discussion about it from the right is also banned. Especially if you criticize the liberal narrative. Conservative commentator Candace Owens was recently handed a seven-day suspension from Facebook for a post that “violated Community Standards.” After a few hours, the account was restored.
2020 Democratic candidate Amy Klobuchar appeared on The View Friday and was largely handled with kid gloves. Only co-host Meghan McCain grilled the Democrat on her party’s radical support for abortion. But she was immediately saved from answering any hard questions on the matter from McCain’s liberal co-hosts.
The man who created some of most famous Trump memes is back on Twitter after a bogus suspension. The account that goes by @CarpeDonktum tweeted that while he was restored as of May 10, his account’s restoration is “is not the fairy tale ending as we had hoped.” He continued by explaining, “For 8 days I worked within the @Twitter appeal system. IT FAILED CATASTROPHICALLY.” He then added how Twitter “admits I broke no rules, but that decision was OVERRULED by SOMEONE at the top.”
Former late night host David Letterman appeared on Today, Friday, to preview the new season of his Netflix series and to bash Donald Trump. Asked by NBC’s Willie Geist if he missed his old CBS Late Show, Letterman said no and admitted he would be really “ugly” to Trump if still on the air. The host explained how he would handle Trump: “My approach would have been head on. And probably inelegant. Probably really inelegant.”
Trans people are angry, and this time it’s not with biology. Popular millenial social media app Snapchat has found itself in a bit of hot water over its recent photo filter updates that allow users to change their gender appearance in a frame for giggles. However some earnest trans individuals don’t find it funny at all.
UPDATE, 8:25 p.m. Eastern: In the hours since this article was first published, NBC Nightly News answered the call and stepped to the plate in covering the brutal violence against at least 12 people and the allegations of murder against illegal immigrant Bill Chemirmir. The one-minute-and-31-second story opened the newscast's B-block with correspondent Gabe Gutierrez mentioning the suspect's immigration status roughly 38 seconds into the story.
These are the times that try feminists’ souls. Pro-life laws in places like Alabama and Georgia threaten to produce an epidemic of live, healthy births in red states in the not-too-distant future. All good progressives must rally to the abortion uber alles flag. Now is not time to be seen as a summer sister or sunshine patriarchy smasher, not while famous comrades deprive themselves of cheap, non-union production labor or forswear carnal gratification.
Washington Post blogger Greg Sargent is promoting the latest video by serial impeachment ad-maker Tom Steyer under the headline "Democrats are badly blowing it against Trump. A brutal new TV ad shows how." The ad avoids the central finding of the Mueller Report of no Trump-Russia collusion and pretends that there was obstruction of justice, which the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General did not find, for a crime that did not happen.
On Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch says that Elizabeth Warren doesn't have the "stuff" to beat President Trump. He suggests that Warren is too strident to be "digestible." Poor Donny was very clearly afraid of running afoul of Mika Brzezinski in particular and feminists and identity-politics fans in general. He knew the feminists think women are somehow punished by the liberal media, and lamented that this is where we still are in 2019.
The recent pro-life bills passed in Alabama and Georgia appear to have inspired a new iteration of liberal women proudly sharing their abortion stories. Similar to #ShoutYourAbortion, actress Busy Philipps, who revealed her own abortion as a way to rail against Georgia's Heartbeat Bill, asked women to use the hashtag #YouKnowMe to announce their abortions and "end the shame."
While the number of candidates in the Democrats’ 2020 presidential primary continues to grow, one of the most controversial issues liberals face is whether or not to participate in a town hall conducted by the Fox News Channel. However, California Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell claimed on Wednesday that the network -- which dominates the ratings among cable news channels -- had rejected his request to take part in another town hall on FNC.
The passage of abortion laws in Georgia and Alabama have caused a flurry of media reactions, including many misleading ones. At least 16 articles claimed or suggested women would be jailed for having abortions, even though the laws’ text is available for all to read, and specifies women will not face prosecution.
