Joy Reid's "body-language expert" Janine Driver says she believes Bernie Sanders was "lying" when he denied telling Elizabeth Warren that a woman couldn't beat President Trump.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made an appearance on the new season of HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday night, and was greeted by a raucous 35-second standing ovation for impeaching Donald Trump. Maher touted the Speaker as a socialist Margaret Thatcher -- "our Iron Lady" of the Left -- and worried Pelosi wasn't appreciated enough by the extreme-left sector of the Democrats.
While Elizabeth Warren routinely collects applause when citing her gender — and at this minute is using it to accuse Bernie Sanders of sexism — The New York Times stepped to the plate to assail The View’s Meghan McCain. Ms. McCain, of course, is these days famous for her co-hosting stint on the ABC show created by Barbara Walters.
Jacob Bogage of The Washington Post rapped President Donald Trump for dragging the NCAA football National Champion Louisiana State University Tigers into the impeachment debate Friday during their visit to the White House. He also accused the president of lying about trade agreements and harped about the Commander-in-Chief feeding fast food to Clemson's 2019 football champs during their White House visit last year.
The liberal Guardian covered VaughnGate, arguably the most important news story of the last 48 hours. Actor Vince Vaughn was caught, on camera, meeting President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump. That wasn’t all. Vaughn appeared friendly with the Trumps, going so far as to exchange pleasantries during the meeting.
This week, CNN absolutely freaked out over Republican Senator Martha McSally calling one of their journalists a “liberal hack.” Hosts on the network raged over it as “indecent,” “disgraceful” and “hatred.” However one year ago this week, when it was revealed that Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar had tweeting that Israel was “evil,” the cable network only mildly chided her.
Amanda Marcotte in Friday's Salon compared the Republican senators at the impeachment trial of being a throwback to the Jim Crow era due to jury nullification. Her latest wacky shtick is that those Republicans will probably act as a throwback to Jim Crow due to jury nullification.
On Friday's PBS NewsHour, pseudoconservative pundit David Brooks noted that public opinion is moving the wrong way for people who want to remove President Trump from office, but he's "99.9 percent guilty" and Adam Schiff will "walk all over" Trump's new defense lawyers, like Ken Starr and Alan Dershowitz, because "he has the evidence on his side."
In what is not really a surprise, Politico is looking at the trade deal with China through the lens of impeachment. According to Anita Kumar on Wednesday, the trade deal, which she labeled as "modest," is merely a distraction from impeachment. In fact, that is exactly what the title of her article says, "Trump hypes modest China deal, distracting from impeachment."
Anyone who was glad to see that failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton finally stepped out of the limelight is in for a surprise because streaming service, Hulu, is set to air a documentary all about her. Clinton used a promotion for the four-hour Hillary film as an opportunity to discuss the upcoming presidential election, which she described as “no ordinary time” before amusingly asserting that voters should support “the person most likely to win -- and not just the popular vote, the electoral college.”
President Donald Trump’s economy continues to fly in the face of the liberal media and their recession hype. A new Jan. 17 report by CNBC showed that “U.S. homebuilding surged to a 13-year high [16.9%] in December as activity increased across the board” [emphasis added]. Housing starts spiked 16.9 percent to a “seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.608 million units last month, the highest level since 2006,” [emphasis added] noted CNBC.
CNN Newsroom's Jim Sciutto continued CNN's feud with Arizona Senator Martha McSally on Friday by inviting former GOP Senator and Clinton Secretary of Defense William Cohen to comment on the incident with CNN's Manu Raju.
Facebook has taken some free speech stances that drew heavy criticism from fellow Big Tech companies, liberal commentators, and now the Democratic primary frontrunner. Former vice-president Joe Biden told The New York Times editorial board “that Section 230 should be revoked, immediately” for Big Tech companies. The Times called that provision “pretty foundational” to the internet. Biden spoke with The Times editorial board as it tried to determine which candidate to endorse as an organization. In the 80-minute discussion, Biden hammered Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and threatened to repeal the legislation that was intended to protect free speech on the internet.
As the national Spanish-language news networks ramp up their efforts to persuade their viewers to vote for those candidates that are aligned with their own business interests -chief among them, ensuring an unfailing audience, and thus, advertising dollars via open borders - they become more brazen at blurring the line between information and propaganda.
MSNBC weekend anchor Alicia Menendez, daughter of Democrat Senator Bob Menendez, appeared on The View Friday to plug her new book about sexism, called The Likeability Trap. She fit right in at the table, as the hosts have been cheering Elizabeth Warren for standing up to “sexist” Bernie Sanders, all week. The hosts used the book’s theme to rehash their complaints about how America doesn’t like female candidates, both in 2016 and 2020.
