On Wednesday, ABC’s Good Morning America hyped an odd highlight from Tuesday night’s Democratic debate, hailing New Jersey Senator Cory Booker for denouncing a question to rival Joe Biden about Hunter Biden’s suspicious foreign business dealings.
On Wednesday, all three network morning shows presented an united front while praising 2020 Democratic candidates for “showing a united front against President Trump” during Tuesday night’s presidential debate. Reporters eagerly touted how all 12 contenders on stage supported impeachment and denounced Trump.
Former GOP operative turned MSNBC Republican Nicolle Wallace fawned over far-left Senator Elizabeth Warren after the latest Democratic debate. She wondered if the very smart and “deep” Warren would be harmed by Donald Trump’s “poo-poo head” attacks in a general election. Fawning over Warren, Wallace gushed as liberal MSNBC host Chris Hayes wrapped up his chat with the Democrat: “Senator, the smart part of this interview is over.”
While not in any way a conservative Republican, it’s amazing to consider how insufferably liberal former Bush administration official and failed McCain campaign hand Nicolle Wallace has become and such a reliable lefty for MSNBC. Tuesday’s post-debate coverage provided numerous examples of her progressivism, including her gripe that the debate insufficiently covered impeachment and voicing support for Senator Kamala Harris’s pleas for Twitter to ban President Trump.
As part of the post-debate routine, Democratic presidential candidates make the rounds with their friends in the liberal media (especially the host network) and take part in softball interviews. But there was a common theme throughout the questions CNN lobbed at their guests Tuesday night: Why were you targeting Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA) so aggressively?
Late Tuesday night, MSNBC’s post-debate panel reacted to the 2020 Democratic primary hubbub and, while later spinning that no one had a bad debate, they initially knocked Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as both “annoyed” and “petulant” for being unable to handle incoming attacks as the frontrunner, but swooned over Pete Buttigieg being the second coming of Barack Obama.
All’s well does not end well for Joe Biden, especially in Tuesday’s Democratic Debate in which his once cemented front runner status seemed to be superseded by Senator Elizabeth Warren. No one was quicker to point out this predicted chain of events than Trevor Noah and his guest CBS correspondent Alex Wagner on The Daily Show following the debate.
CNN on Tuesday night hammered the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates from the left, demanding to know exactly how they plan on “stopping” pro-life states who dare to pass laws restricting abortion. Co-debate moderator Erin Burnett also promoted the packing of the Supreme Court.
Roughly halfway through the second hour of CNN’s Tuesday night Democratic presidential debate, moderator Anderson Cooper dove into the obligatory questions about enacting strict and intrusive gun control measures. This time, nearly all the questions pertained to probing the candidates on their support for mandatory gun confiscation. And if not, why not?
Did CNN offer an assist to far-left Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer on Tuesday? During the presidential debate, a CNN graphic described Steyer with the somewhat toxic description of “former hedge fund manager.” It’s not a popular term. For example, the website Efinancialcareers offered this headline: “Why only the worst people tend to work for new hedge funds.” So, it’s interesting that for the rest of the debate the graphic for Steyer was changed to “businessman.” Here’s the before and after graphics:
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) took a giant whack at the liberal media during Tuesday night’s 2020 Democratic debate, taking issue with debate partners CNN and The New York Times as being overly hostile due to her foreign policy views. And to make things even more interesting, she specifically slammed CNN political commentator Bakari Sellers (without naming him).
CNN devoted the first 20 minutes of the 2020 Democratic primary debate to impeachment and actually asked the candidates some tough questions on whether the process makes any sense. Yet, moderator Anderson Cooper made sure to exonerate the Bidens, telling Joe Biden that your son has been “falsely accused” and there’s “no evidence” of any wrongdoing. Cooper began by repeating Democratic talking points.
