If the late Tuesday and early Wednesday Don Lemon-led CNN Tonight wouldn’t go down in infamy for its deranged reaction to President Trump’s Arizona rally, the 1:00 a.m. hour drove the nail in the coffin. Most significantly, Lemon falsely claimed that Ronald Reagan already had Alzheimer’s Disease while President and Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter’s fear-mongering got smashed to piece by conservative Ben Ferguson.
Just because liberals devote a massive amount of attention to the current POTUS doesn’t mean that they neglect his VPOTUS. In a Tuesday Nation piece, Walsh disclosed, “You probably have these debates with your friends, too: Do we want Donald Trump to resign, or be impeached, which would leave us with Vice President Mike Pence in charge?...Would the low-charisma Pence, who looks like a B-movie producer’s idea of a president, be easier to defeat [in 2020], especially given the GOP fratricide that would commence with Trump’s departure, however it came about?”
ESPN isn’t really a sports channel anymore, according to MRC’s Vice President of Business and Culture Dan Gainor.
ESPN has “shifted from sports to become the Extra Stupid Progressive Network,” Gainor said. He told Intelligence Report anchor Trish Regan that the sports network “does not live in the real world.”
On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton decided to pass along exclusive excerpts of her new memoir to her pals at MSNBC. Predictably, after playing long clips of the audio version of What Happened, the cast of Morning Joe gushed over Clinton’s “very powerful” narrative and were amazed by her supposed “self-reflection.” In reality, the partisan screed was more about self-pity and sniping at Donald Trump.
Wednesday morning at 12:05 a.m. Eastern Time (9:05 p.m. Tuesday Phoenix time), Reuters tweeted a photo with the following description: "Pro-Trump supporters face off with peace activists during protests outside a Trump rally in Phoenix." The photo by the wire service's Sandy Huffaker also appears in a photo montage at the UK Guardian with the caption "Pro-Trump supporters face off with peace activists."
Seeming to place the responsibility on Donald Trump, CBS This Morning on Wednesday pointedly noted that protesters in Phoenix didn’t become violent until after the President spoke. Reporting from the scene, journalist Carter Evans observed, “This is where thousands of protesters and Trump supporters were gathered before the rally. They were very vocal, but largely peaceful.”
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.
