The media spent Tuesday morning rushing to Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar’s aid, after she was criticized from both parties for making an anti-Semitic comment on Twitter, (not her first.) Politico first ran a story praising Omar as a “superstar villain” for the right, while MSNBC took that headline and ran a segment on MSNBC Live with Craig Melvin, trying to spin the Democrat scandal as a problem for Republicans.
Since the midterm elections, the liberal media have been singing the praises of Democratic Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar for being one of the first Muslim women in Congress. That praise came despite Omar’s long history of trafficking in staunch anti-Semitism. On Monday, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) had no choice but to acknowledge her hate, but only after recent tweets from Omar forced the Democratic Party leadership to denounce her.
Not to gratuitously insult Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but she has to be one of the, um, most lightly-informed pols in a long time to wander onto the national stage. But that didn't stop Chuck Todd from lavishing praise on her. Discussing his just-concluded interview with Ocasio-Cortez with fellow MSNBC host Ari Melber, Todd found reason to variously describe her as thoughtful, refreshing, impressive and smart.
President Trump used his State of the Union to condemn Democratic efforts to push abortion laws toward legal infanticide. Democrats have been swift to call him a liar and protest that he’s blowing things out of proportion. But he wasn’t lying and the evidence is out there, making ThinkProgress’ February 6 protestation as silly as it is dishonest. Trump, ThinkProgress asserted, lied when he claimed third-trimester abortions “rip babies from mothers.”
Morning Joe, during today's SOTU discussion, manages to blame President Trump for the late-term abortion/infanticide bills that Dem legislatures have recently adopted. For good measure, the show even blames the prez for the Dems' socialist surge. AOC? Trump's fault!
ABC couldn’t stop gushing over the Democrats and their invited guests to tonight's State of the Union address, on Tuesday’s Good Morning America. Congressional correspondent Mary Bruce even ludicrously called failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, a “rising star,” hoping that she might run again in the Senate. Bruce also touted Democrats inviting illegal aliens and activists to the address, but failed to mention any of the guests invited by the White House.
There’s no question that, at least until Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez boogied out of the Bronx, Speaker of The House and badass sunglasses aficionado has been a patron saint to radical lefties everywhere, but do we really have to double down on her legendary status by officially declaring her as a pop culture icon? Sadly yes. VH1 just announced that they will be honoring the democratic leader as an official Trailblazer on March 8th, because there’s nothing more validating for a proponent of open borders and infanticide than a Hollywood blessing complete with a kitschy, faux-gilded piece of plastic.
During CNN Newsroom Thursday morning, the panel blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for wanting to “restrict voting rights” because he opposed a Democrat House bill which would demand Election Day be made a paid federal holiday.
The New York Times recently saw fit to print an op-ed by Univision’s senior news anchor, Jorge Ramos, titled “Trump Is the Wall”. In doing so, the Times not only enables Ramos’ endless anti-Trump jihad, but provides an ample platform from which to further disseminate a series of assumptions and half-truths that further solidify Ramos’ status as the most biased national news anchor, regardless of network.
Mike Barnicle was conducting a humdrum conversation about the shutdown with Dem Sen. Sherrod Brown on today's Morning Joe when—out of the blue—Barnicle asked this bizarre question: "Let me ask you: do you think that Donald J. Trump presents a clear and present danger to our democracy?"
Saying that he blames the Democrats as much as the Republicans for the current DC disarray, Tom Brokaw, appearing on today's Morning Joe, said, "you've got the young people running through the halls, who are the new members of Congress, who are conducting pep rallies every day." Brokaw described the Dems as being "driven hard by the left."
On CNN's New Day this morning, Van Jones—host of his own CNN show—commenting on controversial statements on race made by Republican congressman Steve King of Iowa, identified King as representing . . . California. Said Jones: "I'm embarrassed. I mean, I'm raising my family in California. I'm embarrassed that Californians have sent him back [to Congress.]"
