If you have spent any time at all listening to “Impeachment Comadre” Sylvia Garcia, (D-Texas), either during her depositions before Congress last week, or at her media rounds on the nation´s Hispanic networks, you will have witnessed the extent to which she forcibly rehashes the Democrats’ talking points regarding the whole impeachment charade.
Four years ago, polls declared that Hillary Clinton would win the White House in a landslide. As you might expect, the folks who conducted those surveys have been trying to regain their standing ever since. The Washington Post and ABC News began 2020 by releasing their first poll on how people view things, and the survey indicates that President Trump “is in better shape than he was last fall” due to rising approval for his handling of the economy.
Perhaps in a sign of anticipatory anguish over the Dems' impending defeat, Joe Scarborough went on an epic rant this morning, trashing and sliming the members of the Trump defense team. Scarborough, repeatedly calling the team a "confederacy of dunces," saved his most repellent comments for Ken Starr.
New York Times Peter Baker’s lead-story “news analysis” on Tuesday suggested revelations from an unpublished memoir by Donald Trump’s former national security advisor, John Bolton, could be a Watergate-like “smoking gun” -- or at least would in normal political times. Baker eagerly and perhaps prematurely made his “smoking gun” case: “John Bolton’s Account Upends Trump’s Denials, but Will It Upend Trump?”
If you are encouraging your children to watch football, you may be a "crappy" parent. Football exposes players to the risk of brain damage, and the pro game discriminates against Colin Kaepernick and African American coaches. As a parent who subjects children to football's flaws, you may be a co-conspirator to their hedonism, cognitive dissonance and hypocrisy, alleges Time magazine senior writer Sean Gregory. His story, "Is it Unethical to Watch Football With Your Kids?" will appear in Time's February issue.
In stark contrast to her interview with Democratic impeachment managers last week, where she teed them up and gave them free rein to make their case and throw out new accusation without evidence, CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell got combative with a group of House Republicans (North Carolina's Mark Meadows, New York's Elise Stefanik, Georgia's Doug Collins, and Arizona's Debbie Lesko). And in return, they schooled her on the lack of evidence for impeachment and the new, dubious book by former National Security Advisor John Bolton.
HBO’s The New Pope is still attempting to prove itself just as bad if not worse than its predecessor series The Young Pope. To do that, the show proceeds to show us how the cardinals and priests ruin lives and are generally terrible people. This time around, they push a woman into prostitution and cause a nun protest. There’s apparently nothing terrible that isn’t caused by someone religious.
Shows that start out as a safe haven for people tired of liberal junk on television frequently can’t resist ending up spewing left-wing talking points. So it is with Netflix’s The Ranch which, in its eighth and final release, gave us a speech on gun control and a character who inexplicably turns gay in middle age.
Since Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop brand is obsessed with vaginas, naturally her new series on Netflix, The Goop Lab, is, too. The six-part series released on January 24 featured 20 seconds of a woman exploring her vagina with a mirror (yes, we see close-ups of the vagina), a slideshow of 8 more vaginas, and almost three full minutes of a woman bringing herself to orgasm.
Monday was day two for President Trump’s defense in the Senate impeachment trial and it was the first full day for his legal team to layout their fact-based arguments for acquittal. Yet, the evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC chose not to air their arguments, as they did with House Democrats. Instead, they chose to disregard the defense in favor of pouncing on reported allegations made in the conveniently timed leak of former national security advisor, John Bolton’s yet to be released book.
New on January 27: CNN anchor Don Lemon on Saturday night guffawed and brought himself to tears of laughter, dabbing a tissue to dry his eyes, as he and two guests ridiculed the stupidity of President Donald Trump and his supporters, with the two guests invoking a dumb person impersonation meant to sound like a Trump voter.
In the 9:00 a.m. ET hour on Monday, hours before the Senate impeachment trial resumed, MSNBC anchor Chuck Todd led a panel discussion about the possibility of President Trump’s State of the Union address being cancelled to prevent the President from having a platform to promote his agenda.
Not everyone in Hollywood has fallen in love with the House Dems’ impeachment trial grandstanding. Trump supporter and Hollywood legend Jon Voight gave a stunning rebuke of Democrats’ impeachment case. The 81-year-old actor described the case, which is now being heard in the Republican-held Senate, “a disgrace to mankind.”
Liberal reporters and hosts lionized lead Democratic House Manager Adam Schiff for his “dazzling” “impassioned” “brilliant” performance as he was compared to rock stars like Prince and Bruce Springsteen. However, Donald Trump’s Republican defenders were slimed as “shameless,” lazy cowards who live in “terror” of the President.
In contrast to spending last week as state-run TV for the House impeachment managers, CNN flipped the script Monday afternoon to express predictable anger at President Trump’s “insulting” legal team living “on a different planet than the rest of us” that included a supposedly ineffective and “mind-boggling” case from Ken Starr.
