Everybody’s seen that now infamous Saturday CNN segment featuring Don Lemon, Rick Wilson and Wajahat Ali cackling away at the “credulous boomer rubes” who voted for Trump. Not a good look, is it? In fact, it’s so horrible that on Wednesday super-strident progressive actress Alyssa Milano tweeted, “I don’t agree with making fun of anyone. The CNN clip displays a level of mockery, toward those who support Trump, that I’m uncomfortable with.”
President Trump impeachment defense lawyer Alan Dershowitz appeared on The View Wednesday and was put through the wringer by the extremely hostile hosts who sighed, rolled their eyes and mocked their guest for daring to bring up U.S. history, in his defense of the President.
First there was the rise to NBA stardom, followed by the fall, and a strong finish for Kobe Bryant before his tragic death last Sunday. Included in his legacy are career highlights that few NBA players ever will approach, a devotion to faith and family and more tributes than one can count.
Criticizing the so-called "independent fact-checkers" isn't just about whether their fact checking is accurate. It's about which "facts" they choose to evaluate, and which politicians they choose to evaluate and how often. For example, in 2017 and 2018, PolitiFact performed 297 "fact checks" on President Trump, and just nine on Sen. Charles Schumer. They picked an easy "True" this week for Schumer, and avoided his wild claims of Trump's "absolute obstruction" of the Senate trial.
“Smoking gun” has become a buzz phrase in the liberal lexicon throughout the Trump presidency. The term is utilized by the lefty media on a continuous loop whenever there is a “revelation” brought forth that has the potential to damage President Trump. Seth Meyers on Tuesday's Late Night, aired early Wednesday morning, invoked the oft-repeated phrase during an interview with NBC Nightly News Lester Holt.
While discussing the possibility of former National Security Advisor John Bolton testifying in the Senate impeachment trial, during MSNBC’s special coverage Wednesday morning, anchor Chuck Todd eagerly offered the ex Trump aide the “full hour” of Sunday’s Meet the Press to air accusations against the President.
The supposedly reasonable PBS on Tuesday abounded with dark conspiracy theories about the impeached Donald Trump fomenting violence in November after losing, as well as whether America is turning into Nazi Germany. Veteran journalist Ted Koppel shot down that theory, but engaged in the idea of mass violence by dejected Trump voters.
On New Day, CNN "senior political analyst" John Avlon offers the preposterous proposition that John Bolton's prospective testimony at the impeachment trial would be "the equivalent of Nixon's smoking gun tape."
While anchors and analysts on MSNBC had nothing but praise for anyone involved in the prosecution accusations that President Trump is unfit for office and should immediately be removed, these same liberals have had nothing but contempt and ridicule for the people who sought to defend the Republican occupant of the White House. That was particularly evident on Tuesday’s edition of Morning Joe, when co-host Joe Scarborough sought to demean Trump defender Ken Starr -- who claimed that we’re in an “age of impeachment" -- by stating that the former Bill Clinton prosecutor had included several sexual terms in his own report two decades ago.
Just when you think today’s politics couldn’t get any more nuts, liberal billionaire 2020 Democratic candidate Michael Bloomberg decided to promote “Big Gay Ice Cream.”
Apparently even the shallowest level of research is too difficult for Washington Post fake “conservative” blogger, Jennifer Rubin. The liberal journalist and MSNBC contributor tried to dunk on President Trump’s lawyers in the Senate impeachment trial with an immature tweet mocking them as inexperienced buffoons. Unfortunately for Rubin, she was the one who ended up looking like a fool.
A series of “miraculous” events turned Dr. Max Goodwin from an annoyed skeptic to reluctant seeker in Tuesday night’s New Amsterdam episode, 14 Years, 2 Months, 8 Days. Throughout the episode, the crusading medical director is challenged by unexplainable miracles in the hospital, all happening while an interfaith prayer group called “Prayers for Healing” holds a prayer session in the hospital lobby.
Days after he took part in viciously attacking Trump supporters for supposedly not being able to read, CNN anchor Don Lemon finally addressed the controversy on-air, but only after it blew up across social media. During his opening monologue for Tuesday’s CNN Tonight, Lemon refuses to apologize, instead claiming he doesn't belittle people and was only laughing at the joke and didn't hear everything.
One favorite tactic of our “objective” media during the Trump impeachment is to find a clip of the president’s legal experts expressing an opinion during the Bill Clinton impeachment in 1998 and 1999 and then showing a contrast with the present day. But this is just as easily demonstrated with the press. In both impeachments, the press flipped to whichever talking points were in use by the Democrats.
Blackish is known for being a politically and racially charged show, and this week's episode was no different. In Tuesday's episode, "Adventure to Ventura," the show compares Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old climate change activist/fanatic, to Alexander the Great, one of the world's, well, greatest and most successful military commanders in history and the teenage inventor of Braille.
