During her noon ET hour show on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell rushed to the defense of the far-left “squad” members of Congress – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley – by falsely claiming that “none of these members of Congress are socialists.” In reality, two of them are members of Democratic Socialists of America while all of them have advocated policies that fit the very definition of socialism.
The four hosts of The View were unanimous in their displeasure over rally-goers chanting “send her back” at President Trump’s rally last night in Greenville, North Carolina. The hosts claimed it was “frightening” and “dystopian” and “invited violence.” Joy Behar wanted to know why the President couldn’t be charged with hate speech against Ilhan Omar over his tweets that inspired the chant.
CBS This Morning's Gayle King has settled the debate. The member of the so-called “Squad” of far-left Democratic congresswoman “love this country so much” and any statement otherwise is “simply not true.” The co-host/Democratic donor on Thursday declared, "Not one of them has ever said, ‘I hate America.’ Not one of them has ever said, 'I don't want to be here." Citing her own interview with Rashida Talib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley, King insisted of “Squad” members (who have refused to condemn violent Antifa): “In fact, I would say they love this country so much. They spoke with such pride about being in Congress.”
Only a few days after BuzzFeed thought better of endangering his life by revealing his private information, Huffington Post appears ready to do it themselves.The pro-Trump YouTuber, who goes by the online name CarpeDonktum, revealed that Huffington Post is considering releasing his personal information. This has dire implications as many public internet personalities on both sides receive death threats and harassment.
Social media has banned and censored people from using its products. What will happen when social media companies create other everyday products — like money? During two hearings in the House and Senate on July 15 and 16, senators and congressional representatives came down on Facebook’s newest initiative, the cryptocurrency Libra.
It's not just Donald Trump that the liberal media despises. Now, his supporters are due for attacks. Take Joe Scarborough on Thursday's Morning Joe. He slimed Trump’s rally in North Carolina this way: “That’s the President, actually, from his Nuremberg rally from last night.” Get it? They’re like Nazis.
On Wednesday morning, CNN’s New Day aired a panel featuring eight Republican women from the Dallas, Texas area. In the face of biased, manipulative questions, the women pushed back against the liberal media. CNN anchor Randi Kaye asked the panel of women a series of pointed questions, ones designed to pressure them to denounce President Trump so that CNN could show its viewers that the President is losing support amongst female voters. Only, the women pushed back.
On Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show, commenting on President Trump's tweets regarding The Squad, Donny Deutsch says: "we are heading to such a dangerous place. And guess what? You look at history, it can happen here. Maybe it’s the Jews next."
Thursday morning all three networks began their shows expressing disgust at what happened at President Trump’s rally in Greenville, North Carolina last night. At one point, the crowd began to chant “Send her back,” referring to Rep. Ilhan Omar. On ABC’s Good Morning America, anchor George Stephanopoulos dragged out the Richard Nixon comparisons, while correspondent Terry Moran fretted that Trump supporters wanted to control who “gets to be an American.”
After the CBS Evening News with Norah O’Donnell debuted with two nights of rampant liberal bias on a number of fronts, Wednesday’s installment included a rare reprieve with substantive, snark-free coverage of the illegal immigration crisis at the border (compared to what we usually see from them) and another example of how, even in the liberal media, broken clocks can occasionally be right.
In this latest season of Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, the series has been unusually spiteful towards religious people. Of course, the premise of a religious takeover of the United States forcing women into slavery was never going to be flattering, but this year has been much harsher with Christians defacing monuments and priests being called child molesters. This week, we see a retread of the old pro-choice claim that pro-lifers and religious people treat women as “vessels” for growing babies.
Liberals demanded Trump supporters denounce his "racist" tweets with hashtags like #SilenceEqualsConsent. But when a Canadian reporter asked three members of the radical-left "Squad" if they would condemn Antifa terrorism, they all refused to answer the question. Now does silence equal consent? It's incredible that the news media refuse to cover a member of Congress refusing to condemn a group that advocates domestic terrorism!
There comes a time when everyone needs to take a holiday, so it would behoove Chris Matthews to heed this advice soon. Seeing as this past week of Hardball has proven to be a stumbling block for new, creative ways to insult President Trump, Wednesday night’s episode followed the same, banal pattern.
LeBron James' I Promise School in Akron, Ohio debuted to rave reviews from an adoring media a year ago. Renowned for his thunderous basketball dunking and social justice warrior exploits, he plunked out $600,000 to help taxpayers start this unique school for at-risk third- and fourth-graders, along with a $1 million donation for a gym. On Wednesday, a poet and cultural critic named Hanif Abdurraqib wrote about the day he visited the school, and his story on Bleacher Report reveals the school's emphasis on self esteem and unorthodox teaching methods.
It was another bad day on Wednesday for The Resistance as it was revealed that the Southern District of New York had ended their probe concerning the Trump Organization and alleged hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal. And on cue, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News saw no reason to acknowledge this while ABC's World News Tonight only gave it a 16-second news brief.
