CNN host Van Jones, the former Obama White House aide, interviewed NBC late-night host Seth Meyers with the usual reverence that liberals offer to comedians of the Resistance. “You are doing a phenomenal service to the country,” Jones gushed. “You are an icon, a legend.” But the best comedy in this interview came when Jones asked about the jesters lining up against Trump.
On June 20, Jimmy Fallon welcomed teenage school-shooting survivors David and Lauren Hogg to promote their new gun-control manifesto, #NeverAgain: A New Generation Draws the Line. David Hogg told Fallon he survived the shooting by recording other students and planning on how, if he died, his voice could still echo for "positive change" in Congress.
During Thursday’s edition of Anderson Cooper 360, CNN Political Analyst Kirsten Powers weighed in on First Lady Melania Trump’s controversial jacket choice, describing her as the Marie Antoinette of the Trump Administration and later arguing “she’s like a teenager literally, like this is something a teenager would do, although honestly, a teenager that was a child of a President would not do this typically.”
The narratives surrounding the 2-year-old girl photographed crying at the U.S.-Mexico border have imploded so completely that it couldn't possibly get more embarrassing, right? Wrong. A later segment of CBS's This Morning revealed that young Yanela Denise Hernandez's mother, Sandra Sanchez, was deported in 2013.
On Thursday's Cuomo Prime Time, CNN host Chris Cuomo treated it as if it were something to brag about that only 75 percent of illegals who are required to show up in court actually make their court dates as he complained about President Donald Trump's push to charge illegal immigrants when they cross the border and keep them in detention, resulting in some being separated from their children as required by law.
CBS This Morning hosts on Friday unveiled a new series that basically amounts to an op-ed during the supposedly straight news show. Calling it “The Reporter’s Notebook,” co-host John Dickerson celebrated the White House’s reversal on splitting children as a victory for “the human tribe.” Norah O’Donnell touted co-host Gayle King’s lecture from this week that “the Statue of Liberty weeps” at the administration’s actions.
Viewers who watch The Late Show weeknights on CBS have heard host Stephen Colbert slam GOP President Donald Trump on a regular basis, but on Thursday, the liberal comedian turned his venom onto a different target: Melania Trump. Colbert used his monologue to criticize the First Lady for wearing a jacket with the phrase “I really don’t care, do U?” on her back during what the late-night host called “the middle of the worst moral scandal in recent memory -- so bad that her husband backed down for the first time in memory.”
Man, being “woke” is a full-time job. You’ve got to get a handle on the outrage du jour and how it intersects with all the other stuff you’re supposed to be outraged about -- the fight of Zoroastrian little people for the right to work in Tajikistan’s steel smelting industry is of a piece with the struggle of Portland’s gay Asian ice cream vendors for the right to scoop in leather Speedos. And then you’ve got to get ready for it to change.
Late Thursday afternoon, news broke of Charles Krauthammer’s death after a battle with cancer. While Krauthammer was a Harvard-trained psychiatrist, Pulitzer Prize winner, Fox News contributor, and best-selling author, CNN host Don Lemon could not spare a single second of his two-hour show to the passing of the beloved pundit.
Noting the death of conservative author and columnist Charles Krauthammar late Thursday night, MSNBC anchor Brian Williams delivered an obituary that was positive overall, but was unable to resist laying blame for the Iraq War at the feet of the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer.
While the liberal media all went wild over Time magazine’s latest photoshopped cover depicting an aloof President Trump towering over a crying immigrant child, on Friday, only CBS This Morning took the time to correct the record and explain how “misleading” that doctored image was. Unlike NBC or ABC, the broadcast network actually sought out the Border Patrol agent who first encountered the child and her mother, explaining that the two were not separated.
Yahoo! Finance certainly has almost Krugman-like timing. New York Times economist Paul Krugman immediately reacted to the 2016 election of Donald Trump by warning of a possible “global recession.” Perhaps Yahoo! was taking pointers for its latest series.
Facebook cracked down this week on Splinter News for sharing a link to its article revealing Stephen Miller’s personal cell phone number. According to Facebook’s Community Standards, posting links that contain an individual’s personal information, such as a person’s private cell phone number, can violate the site’s policy to prevent identity theft.
The fuming, unhinged liberals at MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday came completely unglued as they compared Donald Trump’s voters to Nazi's and the President himself to madman Kim Jong-un. It began with Mika Brzezinski proclaiming that President Trump “will forever be remembered as the president who traumatized little children.”
CNN news anchor Jake Tapper is getting his Afghani war book turned into a Hollywood action flick with major tinseltown leading men signing on for the action. On Thursday, The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that several actors have been selected for the onscreen adaptation of The Outpost. The cast includes a few big names such as Orlando Bloom and Scott Eastwood, as well as up-and-coming Sharper Objects star, Taylor John Smith.
