Joe Concha at The Hill reported House Speaker Nancy Pelosi brought her egotistical swagger to a press conference on Thursday, dissing reporter James Rosen of Sinclair as "Mr. Republican Talking Points" and then bragging about how she has more experience on intelligence matters than anyone else in Congress.
Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley continued her book tour Thursday with an appearance on CNN’s The Situation Room and, during an exchange with host Wolf Blitzer about the Trump impeachment, blasted the liberal media for “want[ing] there to be something wrong” found against President Trump. Hilariously, Blitzer countered that his show doesn’t have a bias despite the fact that, hours earlier, he disgraced himself by, aside from continuing to live for impeachment, pressing White House counselor Kellyanne Conway about her marriage.
At a Thursday press conference, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) essentially authorized the use of the word “bribery” to describe President Trump’s phone call with the president of Ukraine. The broadcast networks gushed about her use of the word and showed their approval by roundly noting that bribery was an impeachable offense explicitly laid out in the Constitution.
On Thursday, Day 3 of the Kaepernick-gets-a-tryout news cycle, the groupthink media parrots had their talking points down pat: the NFL's Saturday workout and interview with the famous anthem foe is a sham and a PR stunt. This point was made loud and clear Wednesday by several Kaepernick apologists on ESPN and again Thursday in the Detroit Free Press where Shawn Windsor echoed talking heads and writers who are putting the NFL on trial for granting Kaepernick an unprecedented opportunity.
Perhaps the only thing more off putting than swooning over politicians is the swooning over bureaucrats, but that is exactly where MSNBC Live went on Thursday in recapping Wednesday's impeachment proceedings and Fox News' reaction to it. In defending the honor of the civil service, former spokeswoman for the Treasury Department and Samantha Power at the UN Hagar Chemali accused Fox of "blasphemous" attacks on George Kent and Bill Taylor.
If skeptics needed any more evidence that Big Tech is liberally biased, Amazon delivered in a big way. Amazon published a policy list to “provide customers, investors, policymakers, employees, and others our views on certain issues,” the manifesto read. Though it tried to claim shortly thereafter that “there is much room for healthy debate and differing opinions.” We’ll see about that. Founder and CEO of Amazon Jeff Bezos also conveniently owns the liberal Washington Post, who unveiled its melodramatic motto “Democracy Dies in Darkness” after Donald J. Trump won the presidency.
It didn’t take long for Stephen King to launch into an attack on President Donald Trump, in the wake of the Santa Clarita shooting. The horror author took to his official Twitter account, on Thursday, to curse out Trump as he tweeted: “Trump is said to be ‘monitoring the situation’ in Santa Clarita. Is he a useless piece of shit or is it just me?”
If ratings are any indicator of Americans’ interest in impeachment, Democrats are in big trouble. Viewership for yesterday’s impeachment hearings are out, and reveal that between the three major broadcast networks, ABC led ratings, with just 2 million total viewers (Fox News was the most viewed network, with 2.9 million watching.)
Accuse liberal billionaire George Soros of impropriety and you could be accused of anti-Semitism and be de-platformed. At least that’s what the Open Society Foundations is allegedly saying should happen to lawyer and Fox News guest Joe diGenova.
Not surprisingly, left-wing comedian Samantha Bee was very excited that the public impeachment hearings have begun. She began Wednesday’s edition of Full Frontal by declaring “I can’t wait to finally eat a piece of the impeachment cake I baked over three years ago!” The TBS host praised the “persuasive” witnesses and hyped the “bomb” that one of them supposedly dropped.
While Wednesday’s impeachment hearing was in a brief recess during the 12:00 p.m. ET hour, Republican Congressman Mark Meadows conducted a press conference with Capitol Hill reporters and called them out for their biased questions in real time. He repeatedly corrected the record as the journalists made misleading assertions about the hearing in an attempt to boost the partisan impeachment proceedings against President Trump.
As the saying goes, birds of a feather … flip the bird to America together. Like U.S. women’s World Cup champion, feminist activist and angry lesbian Megan Rapinoe dedicating her Glamour “Women of the Year Award” to disgraced, race-baiting former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
After The View was preempted by coverage of day one’s impeachment hearings, the hosts returned to the table Thursday to discuss the testimonies from the day before. The hosts railed against Republicans still standing by the President, with Whoopi even claiming they were going against what Republican voters wanted.
Co-host Sunny Hostin also slammed their “hearsay” refrain about the thirdhand witnesses to the Ukraine phone call, saying that Linda Tripp’s taped phone calls were “complete hearsay” and that got President Clinton impeached.
The founder of the liberal crowdsourced information platform Wikipedia, which received $2 million from liberal billionaire George Soros, is launching a social media site to rival Facebook and Twitter. Jimmy Wales said in a tweet that WT:Social is a response to the “fake news and low quality content” that can be found on Facebook and Twitter.
White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway on Thursday got into a contentious battle with Wolf Blitzer when the anchor awkwardly insisted that “there are issues” with her marriage to Trump critic George Conway. Blitzer stumbled, “I just have a final question, a sensitive question, and it’s a political question, it’s a substantive question.” He added, “I don’t want to talk about your marriage. I know that there are issues there.” An incredulous Conway responded, “Did you just say there are issues there?... Why would you say that?”
