On the second episode of BBC’s Years and Years, which aired in the United States on HBO July 1, the woes of the Lyons family have become more catastrophic. A year has passed since the nuking of the Chinese island of Hong Sha Do in the final days of the Trump presidency, which has brought about sanctions and trade wars.
While filling in for Stephanie Ruhle during MSNBC’s 9:00 a.m. ET hour on Monday, anchor Chris Jansing promoted a book club created by Iowa Democrats in which members pledged to read campaign memoirs written by 16 of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates before the Iowa caucuses in February. Jansing touted how the “relaxed, cerebral idea” was “catching on big.”
Fox Business anchor Dagen McDowell happily announced that the U.S. entered a record-setting 10 years of economic expansion July 1. “You have more than 70 percent of people think the economy is good if not great,” she declared. She also mentioned how 70 percent of Americans “like their private health insurance from their employer,” and wondered what “advice” Democrats would use to campaign against the strong economy. “How do you push back on that, given the fact that the economy, as of today, this is the longest economic expansion in history?” she asked.
Every once in a blue moon, there is a member of the leftist media mob who is willing to stand up and state an irrefutable truth. For all of the left-wing propaganda talking points Bill Maher has up his sleeve, he exemplified a rare moment of self-reflection on his party during Friday night’s Real Time. Maher began his show by having the guts to be intellectually honest about the behavior of the Democratic primary candidates, specifically Julian Castro’s ludicrous claim about transgender women.
Reporter Matthew Rosenberg got his feelings hurt over a parody Joe Biden website, on the front of Sunday’s New York Times: “The Deception Of a Biden Site That’s Not His.” He devoted 2,400 words of investigative reporting to finding the name behind a website with the audacity to mock a Democrat. Rosenberg didn’t see the funny side: "For much of the last three months, the most popular Joseph R. Biden Jr. website has been a slick little piece of disinformation that is designed to look like the former vice president’s official campaign page, yet is most definitely not pro-Biden...He brushed off a question about whether GIFs of Mr. Biden touching women, devoid of any context, represented facts."
What better way for a silly liberal animated cartoon show to mock President Trump’s views on global warming than for him to embrace its reality because he is profusely sweating? Trump is convinced by the Generals – Mattis, McMaster, and Kelly – to support finding solutions to global warming to save the planet, and the military, too.
In a promo for Telemundo’s post-debate coverage, the network suggests that the Democratic nominee, whomever that might be, will “best represent Latinos” against President Donald Trump in the 2020 general election.
On Joy Reid's MSNBC show, regular guest Elie Mystal says the 5-12% of African-Americans who don't support Democrats have "had their vote colonized by the Republicans, or by Russia." He adds, "you can't free everybody."
During Friday’s Real Time, HBO host Bill Maher and his panel weighed in on the first Democratic debates, so not surprisingly, it did not take long for the guests to start trashing President Trump, calling him an “overt enemy of liberal democracy” and claiming there’s “concentration camps” at the border. Believe it or not, Maher had the most rational analysis; repeatedly calling out his liberal guests for their double standards.
Paul Krugman smeared the entire Republican Party as far-right and un-American in his Friday New York Times column, “The S Word, the F Word and the Election -- Guess which party is really un-American.” He ranted on: "Basically, if we saw something like America’s Republicans in another country, we’d classify them as white nationalist extremists."
On Thursday and Friday, several pundits took to MSNBC to warn that Democrats moving farther and farther to the left in the debates were “playing into this socialism theme that Donald Trump has come up with” and giving the President a “huge gift” for his reelection campaign. Some even declared Trump the winner of the debates.
MSNBC host Hallie Jackson revealed the gleeful response by Trump campaign sources to the Christmas gift the Democrats gave them at the second debate in Miami in the form of all agreeing to give free healthcare to illegal immigrants.
