Talk about grasping at straws! The big three morning shows went wild this morning hyping a supposedly new claim President Trump made about the infamous 2016 Trump Tower meeting. On Twitter, Trump admitted that the meeting was aimed at gathering opposition research on Hillary Clinton. Old news right? Well the morning shows didn’t seem to think so, and ludicrously reported that this was a “stunning” reversal of everything the Trump campaign had said up to this point.
Showtime’s Who Is America continues to document Sacha Baron Cohen’s appalling targeting of conservative figures disguised as entertainment. Of course, the result is not entertaining in the slightest which explains why hardly anybody watches it. The latest episode follows the downward spiral by lumping in Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the golden shower tapes.
Psst. Want to hear a joke? How about the one where Hillary Clinton -- you know, the woman who wasn’t going to “Stand By Her Man” until she did and enabled her husband’s sexual abuse and philandering -- claimed to be a women’s rights advocate? Hilarious, isn’t it? While a joke for sensible people, Hillary has been quite insistent that she stands on the shoulders of the giants of the women’s movement.
With the trial of Paul Manafort -- one of the campaign heads for Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign -- set to begin Tuesday, several people in the "mainstream media" are hoping to learn some tiny but significant fact that could lead to the impeachment of the Republican occupant of the White House. Unfortunately for those in the press with dreams of taking down Trump, the facts in the trial will overwhelmingly focus on Manafort’s lavish lifestyle instead of any hints of collusion between the campaign and the Russians.
Last Thursday, Hillary Clinton showed up to a Broadway performance of Hello Dolly! and was given a rather warm welcome. Bette Midler, one the production’s stars, claimed that Clinton’s appearance made everyone in attendance “unbelievably happy.”
For years, Michiko Kakutani was the most feared and revered New York Times book critic. Now the reviewer becomes the reviewed with her new book with a self-explanatory title: The Death of Truth – Notes on Falsehood in the Age of Trump. On the plus side, it’s short. Yet this slim, 173-page undersized hardback still manages to be a slow read, dense and repetitive. The widely read Kakutani uses boringly familiar quotes from predictable wells of anti-totalitarian wisdom like Hannah Arendt and George Orwell to attack Trump and the new GOP for abandoning truth, reason, even common decency.
In a move that shows the desperation of the writers of Stephen Colbert’s Showtime animated series, the episode of Our Cartoon President that aired on July 29 shows Vice President Mike Pence confessing to an affair to take the heat off Trump. Pence confesses in a press conference after a trip to Mar-a-Lago with the president and his cabinet.
Stormy Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenattie, whined about famed attorney Alan Dershowitz getting personal with him even though the criticism was on strictly legal grounds. The sparks flew during a debate on Anderson Cooper 360 when Avenatti, who likes to dish it out, demonstrated that he has a very thin skin when it comes to criticism.
The producer of Tom Arnold's upcoming series, The Hunt for the Trump Tapes on Viceland has admitted there is just one little problem with that effort. They have not actually found any tape that could bring Trump down.
If you were watching one of the Friday morning cable or broadcast networks, chances were you didn’t hear about news late Thursday into Friday that the North Koreans handed over what purported to be remains of U.S. soldiers who went Missing In Action (MIA) during the Korean War. A NewsBusters analysis found that 16 times more coverage was dedicated to former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s unverified allegation that then-candidate Trump knew in advance about the infamous June 9, 2016 Trump Tower meeting.
New York Times reporters Michael S. Schmidt and Maggie Haberman had the unenviable task of trying to rationalize the effort by Special Counsel Robert Mueller to investigate President Donald Trump's tweets for signs of obstruction of justice for a crime that has not been alleged in "Mueller Examining Trump’s Tweets in Wide-Ranging Obstruction Inquiry."
The result is an example of the desperation of liberals to reach even by ridiculous means their beloved impeachment, or, in this case, imtweetment.
Take a certain misleading July 26 Washington Post headline as a sign that liberals have become increasingly frustrated that Donald Trump has still not been removed from the Oval Office and that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has yet to present evidence that Trump committed collusion with Russia. This frustration has caused liberal desperation to such an extent that they are willing to grasp at any straw. The latest manifestation of this was the headline on an article by Helena Andrews-Dyer: "Omarosa will take down President Trump in an ‘explosive, jaw-dropping’ new tell-all book."
