Looks like removing any references to American achievement in the Neil Armstrong biopic First Man, the latest movie from La La Land director Damien Chazelle, didn’t pay off at all. According to the recent ticket sales report on Box Office Mojo, the film cost $59 million to make, not counting an extra $50 million for marketing costs. But Deadline reports that it performed way below expectations by earning just $16 million domestically,
The launch of a pro-Trump dating app received positive play on Telemundo (and other major media outlets, including Newsweek) with anchor José Díaz-Balart wrapping up his network’s national evening newscast with a feature on DonaldDaters, created for Trump-loving lovers by Emily Moreno, an entrepreneurial Latina conservative no less.
I saw today that the Buffalo Wild Wings chain has introduced pumpkin spice wings. I only mention it to observe that a) it’s an abomination against nature and nature’s God and b) the Estrogen Industrial Complex’s emasculation-by-pumpkin-spice project is proceeding apace. When somebody figures they can make a buck tarting up the ultimate bar food with nutmeg (nutmeg!), we’re not too far from the day when “Guy-Time” will mean curling up with a flavored coffee and dreaming of Paris.
Following what’s become a persistent narrative from the liberal media, Chuck Todd declared on Friday’s MTP Daily that the midterm message put forth by President Trump (and, by extension, the GOP) has been “a heavy dose of a bit of fear-mongering, conspiracy theories and even some mob-style antics.” Ah yes, so Todd is going to insinuate that Trump’s GOP are the real mob and not the left.
Morning Joe co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski went on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show, Thursday, to praise liberal candidates, bash Donald Trump and make wild predictions. Scarborough insisted that Trump won’t even run in 2020: “I don't think Donald Trump is going to run for reelection. He didn't want to be elected for president. He didn't think he was going to be elected.”
In an otherwise critical piece about Hillary Clinton’s continued high public profile being a problem for Democrats ahead of the midterms and 2020, Politico’s Annie Karni touted the former Democratic nominee having learned at least one lesson from 2016: she should have been nicer to reporters. Appearing on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports Friday afternoon, Karni emphasized how Clinton “understands that now she screwed up her relationship with the press.”
Ever since Brett Kavanaugh took his rightful seat on the Supreme Court, leftists and their abortionist buddies have been frantically reconsidering - not the morality of their actions or policies, but ways to mold American opinion. Catherine Hadro of EWTN’s Pro-Life Weekly exposed the latest development on that front on Oct. 19, where she related on the show that Planned Parenthood is devising a “multi-million dollar strategy to enable it to perform abortion no matter what happens at the Supreme Court.”
Friday afternoon on MSNBC Live, host Stephanie Ruhle talked with political correspondent Steve Kornacki about the media and Trump’s effect on the upcoming Midterm elections. In a rare moment of self-reflection, the MSNBC team noted that maybe the things they were outraged by weren’t the same things voters cared about.
President Trump’s archenemy and 9/11 truther Rosie O’Donnell used her platform as a guest on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House to trash the President, whom she described as “evil” and “dark.” . O’Donnell suggested orchestrating a military coup against the President in addition to claiming that his “wet dream” involves scaring journalists into “not printing bad news about him, which is also equivalent to the truth about him.”
Citing facts is now considered hate speech, according to Twitter. LifeSiteNews, a pro-life conservative news outlet, was locked out of its Twitter account on October 18 after Twitter found an article posted four years ago violated its “rules against hateful conduct.” In the article in question, Dr. Gerard M. Nadal, president of the Coalition on Abortion, stated that HIV, syphilis, and gonorrhea were on the rise among the LGBTQ community because 60 percent of homosexual men “failed to disclose their symptoms or status to sex partners.”
This month streaming kingpin Netflix welcomed into its fold a new season for an animated comedy which tore through desperately needed boundaries like tissue paper. Nick Kroll’s show “gives zero f**ks,” and apparently, neither does Netflix.
Conservative media and social media were set ablaze late Thursday night when CNN’s Jim Acosta reacted to a former Trump staffer tweeting “Dear Diary” to his complaint about Trump rallies featuring loud music with a “fuck you” direct message and a measly apology. Acosta’s tweet and tirade were further put into context upon seeing the CNN Tonight live shot that showed what — shall we say — triggered CNN’s chief White House correspondent.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo lit into ABC News on Friday for running a story with one anonymous"Turkish official" claiming Pompeo heard an audio recording of an attack on missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. In the Trump years, a single anonymous foreign source somehow is more credible than a Secretary of State (and the Turkish foreign minister) on the record.
Following a report on Friday’s Today show designed to draw “parallels” between the current Russian investigation of the Trump administration and the Watergate scandal under President Nixon, NBC Senior Correspondent Tom Brokaw actually seemed to caution his media colleagues against making too many comparisons. The veteran journalist noted the lack of evidence against President Trump and warned reporters not to assume guilt.
Michelle Cottle, the lead New York Times editorial writer for national politics, issued a surprising signed lead editorial in Thursday’s edition, “Hillary Clinton’s Master Class in Distraction” (perhaps a quasi-lead editorial, as it carries the paper’s “Editorial Observer” tag, but it is in the regular editorial slot). Cottle actually mentioned respectfully the case of Juanita Broaddick, who credibly accused then-Arkansas attorney general Bill Clinton of raping her in a hotel room in 1978.
