The president and CEO of the NAACP says the NFL's protesting players are taking a knee out of "reverence of the flag," and President Donald Trump is criticizing protesters in an attempt to deflect attention away from Robert Mueller's investigation. Derrick Johnson made his remarks in an interview with Yahoo Finance's Seana Smith that was reported on by Yahoo's Michael Kelley and Katie Krzaczek.
Groping for grounds to believe Brett Kavanaugh's accusers, Mike Barnicle has come up with a novel argument. On Monday's Morning Joe, the former Boston Globe columnist said: "you would have to be mentally ill to inject yourself into this argument, and to fabricate or lie about these things. You would have to be totally mentally ill. Because you've ruined a large part of your life immediately. You've ruined it."
HBOhhh no they didn’t! Unfortunately, yes, they did. Again. HBO’s hit dramedy Ballers can’t seem to stop with the race wars and heavily leftist storylines, it seems. Only this time, they really upped the ante, saying "Fuck Trump," calling President Trump a “racist-ass bitch,” and praising controversial Colin Kaepernick for “leading a movement” which should be respected.
HBO’s The Deuce has made its views on sex perfectly clear. Namely, that sexual exploitation pays, porn can be empowering, and that our screens need to have at least one - usually many more - naked body an hour. Yet the series always manages to somehow come to a new low even after almost two years on air. The latest is the idea that most "sex workers" don't want to get out of the life.
While most of the liberal media have been silent on the latest developments in the domestic abuse allegations against DNC deputy chair Keith Ellison, CNN host Jake Tapper on Sunday brought up the issue of the liberal double standard between Ellison and U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on his show. And on her Saturday show, right-leaning CNN host S.E. Cupp also raised the double standard issue.
Since the allegations of an attempted sexual assault by Judge Brett Kavanaugh first surfaced, very few on the right had been able to get onto the liberal media’s airwaves and give them the proper reality check they needed. During a Sunday appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press, National Review senior editor Jonah Goldberg burst their bubble by explaining how “the preponderance of the evidence that we have … is in Judge Kavanaugh's favor.”
The New York Times’ co-lead story naturally dealt with the Kavanaugh controversy: “Nominee’s Fate Is Pivotal Point In U.S. Politics – An Apex in the Struggle Over Women’s Status.” Reporters portrayed Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, and last-minute sexual-assault accusations, through the prism of Kavanaugh taking away women’s rights through gutting Roe v. Wade as a future member of the Supreme Court, and sexist male Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee failing to believe a wronged woman.
With absolutely no evidence to speak of and no public testimony from the accuser (so far), the liberal media had found Judge Brett Kavanaugh guilty in their kangaroo court of public opinion. They’ve declaring his confirmation dead in water the calling for him to withdraw himself. During ABC’s This Week, none of their liberals could understand how people could believe Kavanaugh, and lamented that people did.
On State of the Union with Jake Tapper, former Michigan governor and Christine Ford defender Jennifer Granholm says that the fact that none of the "witnesses" that Ford named have any recollection of the alleged incident, "actually corroborates Ford's story." What?
After Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and her Democratically connected legal team gave the Senate Judiciary Committee a week-long runaround, the parties finally agreed on a tentative hearing scheduled for Thursday. And despite all of Ford’s named witnesses telling the committee they had no recollection of the party where the alleged sexual assault took place, NBC Political Director Chuck Todd couldn’t see any way for Supreme Court Nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh to look good coming out of it.
CNN political analyst Chris Cillizza took a typical liberal stand for Sen. Cory Booker on Friday. He criticized the Daily Caller for running a story headlined "Booker facing criticism for Kavanaugh reaction after admitting to groping friend in high school." You can't compare Kavanaugh's controversy with Cory Booker's feminist story-telling in a Stanford Daily column about how grabbing a girl's breast without her consent, he insisted:
You just knew that thought had to have shot across CNN reporter Randi Kaye's mind when she asked for a show of hands from a group of five Republican women in Florida about if they believe Brett Kavanaugh in regards to the accusations against him by Christine Blasey Ford. The reason was that all five women immediately raised their hands. As a result, for most of the rest of the interview on Thursday, poor Kaye took on the role of advocate for the accuser.
So here’s the story, this version reported by Joseph Wulfsohn over at Mediaite. The headline: “Hollywood Shows Support For Christine Ford in New Video: ‘We Believe You’” The story says that “Several Hollywood actresses” have gotten together to read a letter of support for Judge Brett Kavanaugh accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. The letter reads:
New York Times reporter Kate Zernike made Saturday’s front page with her take on how Christine Blasey's allegation against Brett Kavanaugh is playing with the public: “Swing District Supports Her, But Gingerly,” from Doylestown, Pa. Zernike was struck that no one she talked to brought up Anita Hill -- but what about Bill Clinton, Hillary’s husband? Bizarrely, Zernike skipped Clinton and reached all the way back to President Ronald Reagan for blame.
During Friday’s edition of Real Time With Bill Maher, most of the panel had few kind things to say about Republicans and conservatives. Panelist Thom Hartmann referred to them as “rubes” while host Bill Maher described them as “stupid and racist.”
