It’s the creme de la creme of the famous activist dream. To run for public office (and theoretically, to win) would give any budding wannabe a certain amount of public validation. So it should come as no surprise that actress Shailene Woodley told the New York Times that she wouldn’t “rule out” the thought of “maybe I’ll run for Congress in a couple of years.”
New York Times reporter Simon Romero covered the violent aftermath of Tuesday night's Trump rally, as left-wing protesters, many violent, faced off with Trump fans: “Trump Rally in Phoenix Touches Nerves in City As Opposing Sides Meet.” Besides seeming to blame Trump’s “divisive” speech for hot tempers (including assaults on police officers), Romero suggested the police were at fault.
After accusing Trump-supporters of wanting to hurt reporters, ABC went on to claim that Trump hated the media because he hates the truth, on Wednesday’s Good Morning America. Not only that, ABC political analyst Matthew Dowd stated, but Trump hates that that the Constitution protects freedom of the press.
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell on Wednesday mocked ESPN for its latest outburst of politically correct craziness. Appearing on the Fox Business Network, he derided the removal of an Asian broadcaster because he has the name Robert Lee, the same as the Confederate general. Bozell sarcastically suggested, “If ESPN is going to take that position they don't go far enough. They need to ban the University of Virginia from their football teams altogether.”
Reacting with horror to President Trump’s Tuesday night rally in Phoenix, on Wednesday’s NBC Today, correspondent Kristen Welker proclaimed: “President Trump is waking up here in Arizona after unleashing a 77-minute fiery and divisive speech here overnight. It was taking aim at his detractors and it was a major reversal after calling on the country to come together just one day earlier.”
Whenever President Trump says anything, you can bet that somewhere, some #resisting celebrity is screaming. So it should come as no surprise that some of the bigger names in Hollywood threw an extensive collective temper tantrum to their millions of followers on Twitter and Instagram, directed at Trump and Trump voters.
ABC’s Good Morning America co-host Lara Spencer gave George and Amal Clooney a pat on the back for giving $1 million to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which has a long history of smearing conservative groups.
The liberal media’s favorite Christians are the liberal Christians, the ones who think there’s too much emphasis on abortion and homosexuality....and are fine with both. Time’s “Ten Questions” interview in the August 28 issue features "Texas pastor" Jen Hatmaker, a liberal author and blogger who’s horrified by Donald Trump and thinks evangelicals need to loosen up.
The pull quote in the magazine is this: “If we are following Christ literally, then nobody’s humanity is up for grabs. Nobody. That is a non-negotiable.” This is NOT a quote about abortion. It’s a quote about “LGBTQ issues.”
ABC’s Good Morning America started off Wednesday’s broadcast in a frantic mood, complaining over and over again about President Trump’s verbal attacks on the media at last night’s rally in Phoenix, Arizona. Instead of taking these typical knocks from Trump in stride, ABC went in full on Chicken Little mode, worrying that his words would “incite” one of his supporters to physically attack one of their own. “It really feels like a matter of time frankly before someone gets hurt,” Senior White House Correspondent Cecilia Vega fretted.
Fighting a brave battle against CNN’s emotionally hysterical, overwhelmed, and triggered liberals after Tuesday’s Trump rally, CNN political commentator and former RNC official Mike Shields thoroughly lambasted his colleagues losing their minds for spending time “chiming in that we just think the President is insane” and deeming him mentally ill.
Immediately following President Donald Trump’s fiery campaign rally in Phoenix, Arizona on Tuesday, CNN completely dropped their thin façade of an objective news organization. In the wake of the address, there were many cries on CNN Tonight accusing the President of being truly out of his mind and unfit to hold the office of the president. Host Don Lemon declared that Trump was “clearly trying to ignite a civil war in this country.” But he wasn’t the only one who was off the wall.
CNN Tonight led the way in providing the left’s response to Tuesday’s Trump rally in Arizona, openly rooting for the President’s removal from office. It was all kickstarted by host Don Lemon’s rant immediately afterward denouncing Trump as a unstable, unintelligent child attacking “an imaginary friend.”
Perhaps the writers at The Bold Type have been reading the many stories posted here on Newsbusters about their extreme leftist slant and inappropriate material for teens and are feeling guilty for their typical, liberal Hollywood ways. Because Tuesday, August 22’s episode, “The End of the Beginning” took a shocking turn for the better by introducing a likeable, black, male conservative character. Well, the likeable part lasted for about five seconds.
Throughout President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Phoenix, Arizona on Tuesday, MSNBC’s The Last Word would break away from the live video in order to do on-the-fly commentary, which often included attacking the President on what he was saying. Towards the end of the of the 10 o’clock hour, host Lawrence O’Donnell left the Trump rally behind to really give his stacked liberal panel a good go at Trump and his supporters.
On Tuesday's All In, recurring MSNBC guest and Slate columnist Michelle Goldberg asserted that President Donald Trump is going to Phoenix "in the hopes of starting a riot" as she declared that his motivations for holding rhe rally were "sick."
