The writers of Hulu’s Difficult People feel no shame in trumpeting their complete disdain for the President and his supporters. Tuesday’s episode, “Rabbitversary” had main characters Julie (Julie Klausner) and (Billy Eichner) call “f*cking” Trump supporters “racist” “pieces of sh*t” without any prompting. Bitter over their lack of decent jobs, Julie and Billy go from complaining about their lives to complaining about Trump voters. After performing a skit for a New York City tour bus, they act as if all the tourists are “f*cking Trump voters” and swear at them. Showing how liberals like to caricaturize all Trump supporters, the two call them “homeschoolers” and even make a jab at Sarah Palin.


In a jaw-dropping spectacle in the lobby of Trump Tower on Tuesday, the President went off on the media while ranting about his response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend. Trump stepped in it when he appeared to defend the alt-right and doubled down on his original comments from Saturday. The network evening newscasts spent 45 minutes and 31 seconds on Trump’s wild press conference, a stunning 77.6 percent of their total air time.


CNN delighted in reporting the results of a recent poll question which asked: “How much do you trust the things you hear in official communications from the White House? Do you trust almost all, most of it, just some of it, or nothing at all?” Forty-three percent picked “some of it,” as people tend to do in a poll. Twenty-four percent chose “almost all” or “most,” and 30 percent picked “nothing at all.” CNN spun this as a victory for "journalism."


On Tuesday’s Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews irresponsibly dabbled in fake/false news by claiming that Republicans and those in GOP leadership haven’t spoken out against President Trump’s handling of the Charlottesville violence, including his Tuesday afternoon press conference. Matthews was squabbling with frequent Hardball guest and GOP strategist John Brabender when he went down that path (despite Brabender largely agreeing with Matthews).


The mainstream media slams at President Donald Trump came in fast and furious on the heels of his August 15  press conference in which he again talked about violence at Charlottesville, Virginia this past weekend. Among the biggest critics was the New York Times which seemed to be upset with Trump blaming "both sides," the white nationalists and Antifa for the violence. Here is a bit of their criticism which you can see in their title, Trump Defends Initial Remarks on Charlottesville; Again Blames ‘Both Sides’:


New on August 14: In the wake of violent and deadly neo-Nazi protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, veteran ABC News and NPR journalist Cokie Roberts claimed President Trump “has to share responsibility.” She also blamed Attorney General Jeff Sessions for going “backward” on race issues, charging: “He’s saying ‘let’s keep voting rights suppressed.’ He’s doing a lot of things that send signals to these white supremacists.”


"Kim Jong-un blinked and backed off some of his threats. So is it possible that some of the President’s amped up rhetoric worked?" That was John Berman today at CNN's Newsroom blurting out that perhaps President Donald Trump should get credit for North Korea backing down on its threat to hit Guam with a missile. Unfortunately for Berman he broke an important taboo among the left that Trump should never be given credit for any positive achievements.


Writing on The Undefeated blog site today, ESPN's Stephen A. Smith says that in light of current events the question has switched from who will stand up with Colin Kaepernick to "who could possibly stand against" the ex-quarterback. And who plays the villain to his hero? President Trump, of course.


Most people in today’s “mainstream media” almost never admit they have a liberal bias when covering the news, but Jake Tapper -- host of The Lead, a weekday program on the Cable News Network -- did just that during an interview with Andy Greene of the Rolling Stone magazine that was posted on Tuesday, August 15.


New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters’ story on President Trump’s controversial response to the racist violence and killing in Charlottesville was posted online Tuesday: “Theories Abound Over Meaning of Trump’s ‘Many Sides’ Remark.” Peters did talk to some conservative media and was thus able to provide some useful countervailing facts about left-wing protester violence from the likes of the window-smashing, bat-wielding “anti-fascist” movement Antifa.


MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was back and firing on all cylinders Monday night, overseeing a show devoid of reason as it linked conservatives, Republicans, and anyone in the “right-wing” to the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists associated with Saturday’s Charlottesville terrorism. Matthews also showed ineptitude in not knowing that progressive heartthrob and President Woodrow Wilson loved the KKK film Birth of a Nation so much that he had it shown at the White House.


The motto of the Trump-era Washington Post is “Democracy Dies in Darkness.” Its counterpart, suggests David Roberts, might be “Conservatism Lives in Darkness.” “Secrecy,” wrote Roberts on Monday, “is the standard approach of today’s GOP…It is, in fact, the only approach possible to advance an agenda that is unpopular and intellectually indefensible.”


Unborn babies with Down syndrome in Iceland are being aborted in astonishing numbers – but that’s not how CBS reported on the news. On Monday night, CBS News On Assignment investigated Down syndrome “disappearing” in Iceland with correspondent Elaine Quijano.

 

On Monday, the late night comedy show hosts from all three networks came out strongly against President Trump, for what they deemed was an inadequate and “shameful” reaction the violence in Charlottesville. While NBC’s Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon didn’t veer into crass and extreme rhetoric like NBC’s other, more colorful late-night host Seth Meyers did, Fallon still called out Trump for his “shameful” response to Charlottesville. ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel also made several jokes claiming Trump was a member of the KKK.


Just how desperate are the writers at the New Republic? All of a sudden, they’ve moved from saying that Donald Trump is a neo-Nazi president to saying “Donald Trump is Killing Us: Notes From the End of the World As We Know It.”
