Appearing on today's AM Joy, former New York Times reporter David Cay Johnston claimed that President Trump's grandfather, Friedrich Trump, built the first Trump fortune by "running whorehouses." That is a claim that is unverified, at best. The Washington Post wrote that the definitive biographer of the Trump family Gwenda Blair, "was careful not to say that Trump ran brothels. I think we don’t quite know that.” And in 2015, even the liberals at Snopes.com addressed the question: "Did Donald Trump’s Grandfather Make His Fortune in Prostitution?" Snopes ruled: Mostly False.
It was bad enough when liberals like Thomas Friedman reacted to Hillary Clinton losing the election by calling it a "moral 9/11," which in no way represented anything like a set of terrorist attacks that killed 3,000 and wounded more than 6,000. But on Friday night, PBS NewsHour analyst Mark Shields returned to the scene of that rhetorical excess in reaction to the Mueller report. The investigations into Russiagate must never end. We need a "new 9/11 Commission."
Tina Fey doesn't think Saturday Night Live can influence people because they're just so darn "fair" and they have their finger on the pulse of how the nation is "already feeling."
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough suggests that Democrats should not "play it safe" and simply try to remove President Trump from office in 2020 by beating him at the polls. Instead, Scarborough argues that the Mueller report suggests that Trump "deserves" to be impeached, and that Congress has a "constitutional responsibility" to begin impeachment proceedings.
Even the release of the Mueller report wasn’t enough to dissuade Hollywood from its collusion delusions.
In the middle of the media’s outrage over Bill Barr’s statements at the pre-Mueller report release press conference, rational analysis was found on CBS, as legal analyst Jonathan Turley calmly and bluntly dismantled the Democrats’ concerns over the Attorney General’s impartiality. The George Washington University Constitutional Law Professor also called out CBS reporter Paula Reid’s badgering of Barr during the presser as “insulting.”
CNN brings back Chris Cuomo to guest host on his former show, New Day. Cuomo proceeds to blast AG Bill Barr over his handling of the Mueller report, as if he's merely shielding the president. Cuomo also indulges in a humble brag about his looks.
For more than two years, people in the “mainstream media” have relentlessly hammered President Trump and his allies with accusations of colluding with Russia during the 2016 election, which Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton was supposed to win in a landslide. Now that the report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence of this, reporters, editors and others at liberal news outlets have been forced to state that they were wrong on this issue. That was the thrust of an op-ed from Gary Abernathy -- a contributing columnist for the Washington Post -- which had as its title: “Admit It: Fox News Has been Right All Along.”
While many liberal Democrats have responded harshly to President Trump’s proposal to move illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities, there is at least one notable exception in the controversy: Cherilyn Sarkisian, the singer and actress better known as “Cher.” In a Twitter post on Sunday, the liberal celebrity focused her attention on the situation in Los Angeles, where she claimed the city does not adequately provide for the 50,000 homeless people already there and is therefore not prepared to handle a large influx of illegal immigrants, a statement that the Republican occupant of the White House readily agreed with.
Members of the liberal media had epic meltdowns following Attorney General William Barr’s Wednesday admission he was looking into how the Trump campaign was spied on in 2016. Despite the fact former FBI Director James Comey admitted the campaign was surveilled, ABC host George Stephanopoulos insisted that it somehow wasn’t really “spying”, during Sunday’s This Week. But the Clinton lackey was swiftly schooled by former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
Well that was predictable. The grassy knoll media is furious at Attorney General William Barr. For those who came in late, the “grassy knoll” was once upon a time an American slang reference to those conspiracy theorists who believed that President John F. Kennedy was not killed by assassin Lee Harvey Oswald firing down on JFK from the 6th floor of the Texas School Book Depository in Dallas. Rather, JFK was shot from the front by a mysterious assassin or assassins firing from the grassy knoll of the small city park adjacent to the Book Depository.
Is there any stereotype that leftists like to push more than that all Republicans are racist? Or neo-Nazis? What better way than to do that than through a bunch of rural white supremacists driving pick-up trucks suppressing black voters?
