Somehow I ended up on a Boston Globe e-mail list, and I get their "Fast Forward" e-mail newsletter by Teresa Hanafin, or "Boston Teresa," as she's known on Twitter. Their slogan for this e-mail is "The news you need for the day ahead." That's pretty funny. The July 3 edition popped up with the headline "A militaristic Fourth in D.C." Boston Teresa made a wish: "All I wish on this Fourth of July holiday weekend is that Trump doesn't embarrass us any more than he already has with his co-opting of the DC celebration for partisan political purposes and a grandiose exercise in self-flattery."
The difference between patriots and Trump-deranged Hollywood elites is day and night. This morning, actor Jon Voight appeared on Fox and Friends with Gold Star mom Karen Vaughn -- mother of a slain Navy SEAL -- to speak about the July 4th “Rally for Freedom.” When asked about an Alyssa Milano tweet calling him a “has been” and an “F-lister,” Voight prayed for the good of his fellow actor.
The liberal media gave Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar a pass yet again this week after she was criticized for making more offensive, unpatriotic comments. In a resurfaced 2017 tweet that went viral Monday, Omar attacked American troops who died in the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu (told in the book/movie “Black Hawk Down,”) as killers. One of the few liberal media outlets to actually talk about the backlash Omar received was Newsweek, and they only did so to defend her outrageous comments.
CW’s alien series Roswell, New Mexico has finally come to an end. With its Trump jabs, obvious politicization of illegal immigrants, and general awfulness, the show is a low point even for a channel with woke witches and Supergirl. The finale decided to immortalize the mess with a ham-handed condemnation of gun laws.
Welcome back to Hollywood’s little fantasy roundtable about how “heartless” America is and how progressive countries show us “what leadership looks like.”
Our friend Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner reports that CBS turned down an ad made by a veteran-owned apparel company. "CBS was apparently not satisfied the firm could pay for the 45-second ad, despite having annual revenues of $25 million. A spokesman for Nine Line charged that CBS didn’t like the ad’s content."
The New York Times reacted with typical petulance to Donald and Melania Trump’s first visit to the troops in Iraq, bashing not only Trump himself (typical) but the U.S. troops in Iraq for bringing Trump their personal MAGA hats to sign, while pondering if the troops would be disciplined. The headline to Annie Karni’s Friday edition report led with the negative: “President Crossed Political Line in Visit to Soldiers Abroad, Critics Say.” The online headline was blunt: “Trump Iraq Visit Is Called a Political Rally.”
No matter what President Donald Trump does, Hollywood celebs will always stoop for reasons to ridicule him. Trump’s secret visit to U.S. soldiers in Iraq on Wednesday was met yet again with unrelenting hostility from Hollywood and the news media, because as long as he’s him, and president, they will remain completely deranged.
Last week, NBC’s Saturday Night Live united the left and right in outrage when they targeted former Navy SEAL and now Congressman-elect Dan Crenshaw for ridicule regarding his missing right eye, which he lost in an IED blast. But during this weekend’s show, they invited Crenshaw on to bury the hatchet and to deliver a very important Veterans Day message.
In just a few days we will honor our nation’s bravest heroes during Veterans Day. NBC’s Chicago P.D., however, ran an episode November 7 depicting an Afghanistan war veteran suffering from PTSD and unwilling to seek help. Talk about tone deaf.
Since the Vietnam War, liberals have been known for their great disdain for America’s service members, despite their efforts to hide it. During NBC’s latest edition of Saturday Night Live, that disdain poked its ugly head out in the form of supposed comedian Pete Davidson mocking Republican congressional candidate Dan Crenshaw about the eye he lost to an IED blast while serving in Afghanistan, “or whatever” according to the funny man.
It’s hard to say if it came from a disdain for the U.S. military, an extension of CNN’s ‘President Trump is literally a third world dictator’ narrative, or some other sinister motive. But in the middle of a segment on the “migrant” caravan making its way to the southern border during Monday’s Prime Time, host Chris Cuomo suggested that the military would end up shooting the over 7,000 people when they got to the border in order to turn them away.
