Laurel or Yanny? The White House produces an amusing video on this topic which ends up triggering Twitter liberals. If you are scratching your head over that question then you probably haven't been on the Web for the past few days. During that time, a viral audio clip has been featured in which a listener will hear either "Laurel" or "Yanny." Two very different sounding words.
CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta found himself largely on the sidelines during his network’s Friday afternoon coverage of the horrifying high school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas. But when he was given a chance to swoop in, he lamented the lack of support from President Trump for “any kind of substantial gun-control measures.” Of course, Acosta failed to provide any evidence for how passing gun confiscation or control measures would put an end to school shootings like those in Texas and Parkland, FL.
The press has dishonestly smeared President Donald Trump since he described criminal illegal immigrants who are members of MS-13 and other gangs as "animals" at Wednesday's White House California Sanctuary State Roundtable. But on Thursday, the Associated Press deleted and replaced a tweet which falsely claimed that Trump's remark referred to all illegal immigrants. Even though both the deletion and replacement tweets are laden with predictable excuse-making and weasel words, AP's deletion effectively burns everyone else in the press and on the left who has been or still is making this false claim.
While making ABC’s annual “upfront” presentation to advertisers on Tuesday, left-wing late-night host Jimmy Kimmel just couldn’t resist slamming the President, who he described as “a lunatic,” and as a result, “we’re all gonna die.” The liberal comedian made these remarks even after claiming in a preliminary interview that “I think people have had an ass-full of Donald Trump, and I feel like the upfront is a time to look within and make fun of ourselves.”
Univision late night news anchor Enrique Acevedo, the heir apparent to Univision senior news anchor Jorge Ramos, made a guest appearance on the Tucker Carlson Tonight show to denounce President Trump's 'animals' remark regarding the nefarious transnational gang known as MS-13.
Don’t ever threaten the liberals’ imagined right to abort. It might just be unsafe. After the Trump administration proposed that health clinics such as Planned Parenthood could not accept federal funds and provide abortions, feminists and media figures raised an uproar.
Sympathy and charity are the natural reactions to a tragedy. Using the deaths of innocent people as an immediate platform for political gain is inhuman. So, naturally, that’s the route Hollywood elitists chose to take just hours after the school shooting in Santa Fe that left 10 dead and several injured.
After the New York Times reported on Thursday that television agent Jay Sures was pitching CNN and MSNBC executives on the idea of a Crossfire-style debate show starring Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti and former Trump White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, Avenatti took to Twitter to dispel the rumors by claiming: “I have no interest in television right now.”
On Thursday night’s All In, the media’s mangling of President Trump’s description of immigrant gang members as “animals” was buried under a flood of hyperbole about genocide from NPR host Maria Hinojosa. Somehow, Hinojosa cartooned Trump into saying every foreign-born person in America is an “animal” (including his wife), and then wildly compared his statement to the Rwandan genocide of the Tutsis. So much for NPR as your taxpayer-funded oasis of sanity.
These are interesting times for the legacy of Ulysses Simpson Grant. On the one hand, Ron Chernow’s 2017 biography started or furthered a reputational rehabilitation of the 18th president, whose administration was tainted with corruption (though Grant himself was never implicated).
Moments after another school shooting, this time in Santa Fe, TX (between Galveston and Houston) on Friday, CNN.com regurgitated a dubious interactive article claiming that there have been 22 school shootings in 2018. Not only did CNN’s count not follow the congressionally-backed definition of a mass shooting, while their examples did all occur on a school campus, many were beyond the realm of conventional wisdom or any wisdom at all.
During MSNBC’s breaking news coverage of Friday’s Texas school shooting, former ATF agent and NBC News law enforcement analyst Jim Cavanaugh took time to attack President Trump for commenting on the tragedy at a White House event, dismissing those remarks of sympathy for the victims as “empty words” since the President had not pushed for gun control.
During Thursday's edition of New Day, Never Trumper and CNN political commentator Ana Navarro expressed her disdain for President Trump's “dehumanizing” comments referring to MS-13 gang members as “animals.” She apparently expected the American public to have a short memory, as Navarro herself had referred to then-candidate Trump as an “animal” in 2016.
MSNBC freaked out on Friday morning, offering multiple segment on the Trump administration’s new restrictions on funding for clinics that provide abortions or refer women to those who do. An MSNBC graphic provided the typically slanted tone: “Targeting Women’s Rights.” Well, apparently there’s no debate then.
During an interview with President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani on Friday’s New Day, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo feared that the administration may throw him and other journalists in jail for reporting on leaks about the Russia investigation. Giuliani dismissed the melodramatic fretting and even jokingly offered to serve as Cuomo’s legal counsel.
