CNN's Chris Cillizza is concerned that Beto O'Rourke, by being transparent about his desire for gun confiscation, is helping the Republicans.



In an appearance on Sunday’s This Week, Senator Ted Cruz (R) schooled Clinton lackey and ABC chief anchor George Stephanopoulos on the ineffectiveness of Democratic gun control legislation. In the process, Senator Cruz called out Democrats for working on plans to confiscate the firearms of law-abiding Americans. Meanwhile, Stephanopoulos was trying to get Cruz to sign onto Democratic proposals.



CNN host Chris Cuomo interviewed former congressional candidate Elizabeth Heng, who narrated a controversial ad targeting socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and highlighting the dangers of socialism that aired during Thursday night’s Democratic debate. Throughout the interview, Cuomo tried to convince Heng, that socialism had nothing to do with the Cambodian genocide and argued that her real beef should be with President Trump, not socialists like AOC.



On Joy Reid's MSNBC show Saturday morning, MSNBC contributor Anand Giridharadas says that Joe Biden is a subtle racist who "has to drop out." He focused on Biden's statement from this past week's debate in which he suggested that black parents lack parenting skills. 



On Friday's Velshi and Ruhle show, MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle fretted over Democratic presidential candidates not taking the U.S. Supreme Court seriously enough as an issue, and particularly the Court's influence on abortion rights, as she devoted a segment to the issue. Correspondent Shannon Pettypiece worried that moderates might side with Republicans on late-term abortion if Democrats do not do a better job of talking up their views on the issue.



In addition to grading individual candidate performances, media often reverts to its favorite topic: the media. But many in the media have misread, and subsequently misinterpreted Univision anchor Jorge Ramos’ performance in last night’s ABC-Univision Democratic presidential debates.



Beto O'Rourke is currently trying to resurrect his dying campaign by espousing every far-left gun control policy he can think of and hope that Democratic voters see that and its associated cursing as passionate. If the Democratic Primary consisted of the folks at CNN Newsroom that strategy just might have worked as co-host Jim Sciutto wondered on Friday if Democrats are being too cautious when it comes to campaigning on gun control.



WASHINGTON — Climate change is one of those issues that the bien-pensants around the world all agree upon. We must act! If we do not act, people will lose their beach houses. Plants will wither and die. Birds will fall from the sky. Just last week, whole communities in the Caribbean were swept away. There are, however, problems with eliminating or ameliorating climate change. For one thing, modern technology cannot seem to keep up with people's ability to dream.



During MSNBC’s post-Democratic debate analysis on Thursday night and early Friday, former HUD Secretary Julian Castro was widely condemned for his attack on former Vice President Joe Biden for his false claim about his health care policy and suggesting the elderly Biden was mentally showing his age. But for anyone with a pulse, it’s amazing that the cast of characters were so enraged by Castro but have spent years either directly asserting or allowing guests to speculate that President Donald Trump’s suffering from Alzheimer’s, dementia, or a mental health ailment.



Thursday night and Friday morning saw the emerging of a new spin from the liberal media. The 2020 Democratic presidential field now has “moderates” and “centrists.” This only makes sense if journalists fully explain just how far left the party has lurched. Instead, they simply referred to people like Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg as the center. 



The View co-host Joy Behar went on a rant on Friday’s show, urging the show’s liberal viewers to unite behind whomever the Democrat nominee will be. Behar painted a bleak dystopian picture of what America is like now under President Trump, warning liberals that to save the planet and their children, they must vote Democrat, no matter what, in 2020.

 


On Friday’s CBS This Morning, while analyzing Thursday night’s Democratic debate, correspondent Major Garrett praised left-wing contender Beto O’Rourke as a “candidate of conviction” for declaring that as President he would confiscate guns. The reporter marveled at O’Rourke’s “authenticity” on the topic.
