We’ve finally reached the end of the season for Hulu’s I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman, and it couldn’t get here fast enough. As usual, the comedian takes the half-hour to promote liberal politics, slam conservatives, and endlessly insult Trump. Remember back when her stated goal was to "connect with un-like-minded people"? Because I doubt she does. I know I shouldn’t expect anything from the series that has gone on more than twenty episodes, but I keep getting disappointed.
Never letting any opportunity to bash President Trump go to waste, the November 15 episode of CBS’s Murphy Brown even worked a line into a conversation with a patient coming out of a coma. Of course, the woman is horrified to find out that Donald Trump is now president.
In a recent interview with the Spanish media outlet El Intermedio, Univision's senior news anchor, Jorge Ramos, was completely upfront in revealing his disdain for the sizeable segment of U.S. Latinos who vote for Republicans, including for Donald Trump.
Appearing on the Tuesday edition of the Fox Business Network’s Trish Regan Primetime, the MRC’s Tim Graham and the eponymous host ripped the liberal media for pushing a “cuckoo conspiracy theory” about President Trump being a dictator and dismissing questions about the integrity of our electoral system (especially the voting recounts in South Florida).
During Monday morning’s MSNBC Live, host Craig Melvin sat down with MSNBC political analyst and SiriusXM progressive programming director Zerlina Maxwell to discuss Michelle Obama’s new book Becoming and Mrs. Obama's interview with ABC’s Robin Roberts. Roberts pressed Obama on her statement wondering “why so many women” chose to “reject an exceptionally qualified female candidate and instead choose a misogynist as their President.” Melvin asked Maxwell to weigh in and she echoed Mrs. Obama’s talking points, lamenting “the fact that we elected someone who had no qualifications to be President, who was running against a woman with a laundry list of qualifications to be President and instead America...chose to give the Electoral College to the person with no experience, who happened to be a man, just like all the other Presidents.” According to Maxwell, “what Michelle Obama is highlighting is the fact that that in and of itself is misogynistic and sexist.”
All three networks worried about the “fate” of the Mueller investigation with news that Attorney General Jeff Sessions was fired yesterday. On Thursday’s morning news programs, anchors and reporters tore into his replacement as acting AG, Matthew Whitaker, for comments he has made in the past criticizing the Mueller investigation. They also touted Democrats like Chuck Schumer fearmongering, calling it a “constitutional crisis.”
Vanity Fair’s Joe Pompeo wrote on a web-based internet phenomenon that political “junkies” (to coin a phrase) are obsessed with: “Certain Readers May Have a Nervous Reaction’: The New York Times Election Needle Is Back, with a Few New Safety Feature -- After the trauma of November 8, 2016, the Times is taking steps not to trigger its readers -- even as it rolls out not one, but two midterm-election needles.” The needle injected Democratic political addicts with a false sense of well-being. And managing editor Joe Khan revealed a bit too much about the special snowflakes that populate his paper’s newsroom.
Writing in an expansive piece entitled “The Eruption” for the Outlook section of Sunday’s Washington Post, non-fiction book critic Carlos Lozada compared Trump voters to “military units,” “cancer cells,” and even “explosives” because they have all been “activated” with Trump voters being “activated” as bigots running roughshod over American politics.
On Friday night, CNN ran a special unsubtlely titled Democracy in Peril: The War on Voting Rights, hosted by correspondent Kyung Lah, which touted accusations by liberals that Republicans are engaging in "voter suppression" by enacting voter laws, targeting minorities to prevent Democrats from winning.
The reboot of Murphy Brown is getting old quick. It has become a boring, paint by numbers exercise in liberal vanity, with shots (both direct and veiled) at President Trump, Melania, the Trump Hotel, and, of course, Fox News. In the CBS show’s episode titled “The Girl Who Cried Wolf” airing October 25, Murphy Brown went to a frequent gag. Murphy (Candice Bergen) is forever in need of a new assistant and the show’s social media/tech guru comes up with a solution – an artificial intelligence one.
WASHINGTON — The midterm elections are fast approaching. All sorts of forecasts are coming out. Oddly enough, no one has asked me what I think the outcome might be. You might remember I disgraced myself in the last election by prophesying that Donald J. Trump would win. I predicted him to be the winner back in the summer of 2016. I predicted his victory throughout the fall.
In an amazing display of media hubris, CNN's Inside Politics host John King used Tuesday’s show to vent his frustration with President Trump and his supporters by screeching directly into the camera: “The president thinks you’re stupid!” Of course, King hasn’t said anything about charges that CNN has intentionally misled its viewers on a variety of topics, ranging from denying that the network generates "fake news" to asserting the channel doesn’t have "Trump Derangement Syndrome."
