CBS This Morning ran a strange segment Monday morning about office party etiquette this holiday season with New York Times contributing writer Jennifer Weiner -- who awkwardly dragged Justice Kavanaugh’s accuser Christine Blasey Ford into it. As the left tends to do, Weiner made the concept of a Christmas party political, worrying that it just another way women would be sexually harassed for what they wear.
On Morning Joe, commenting on remarks by Rudy Giuliani that could be seen as critical of President Trump, Mika Brzezinski twice asks at "what time" Giuliani crafted his remarks. She twice suggests that the explanation for Rudy's candor could lie in the fact that they came "late in the day." Back in 2016, at a time when Trump was considering Giuliani as a possible selection for Secretary of State, Mika hinted that Rudy had been "drinking a lot" during a meeting with Trump.
During her 10:00 a.m. ET hour show on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson, seized on a coordinated left-wing campaign to tar one of President Trump’s judicial nominees as a racist who spent his career defending “voter suppression” of minorities. To bolster that argument, she turned to former NAACP president Cornell Brooks and PBS NewsHour White House Correspondent Yamiche Alcindor.
Chief Justice John Roberts has been drawn into President Trump's web. Last week the president criticized the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, based in San Francisco, calling it "a lawless disgrace." The New York Times writes, "Mr. Trump's remarks came after a federal trial judge ordered the administration to resume accepting asylum claims from migrants no matter where or how they entered the United States."
Does John Berman see himself as a news host, or is he auditioning for a late-night, Trump-trolling, "comedy" gig? The question arises after CNN's Berman, on this morning's New Day, suggested that President Trump is "full of schiff."
CNN's New Day panel twice refers to the Trump White House as a "banana republic." And former Clinton press secretary Joe Lockhart claims that a Washington Post article quoted a "White House official saying on background that 'this is like the Maury show. The only thing we're missing is a paternity test.'" Alisyn Camerota responds: "oh my God." Problems: the article was in Politico, not the Washington Post. And the source wasn't a "White House official on background." It was a former WH official, and thus someone with no current first-hand knowledge.
CNN played a clip of Seth Meyers, from his Late Night show on NBC, saying: "Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is recovering in the hospital after she fell in her office and fractured three ribs. Wow: if you had told me a Supreme Court Justice fell over and broke some ribs, I would have bet on the new guy." Late Night then cut to a clip of Kavanaugh saying "I like beer."
No amount of money or hyperbole is too high for Democrats attempting to wrest control of the House and Senate from Republicans. It is shaping up to be a tough fight. What seems to be giving lefties confidence though, is the fact that they have the cash and pretty smiles of Hollywood’s finest to back them up.
View co-host Meghan McCain was the only one at the table on Thursday’s show to call out their Democrat guest, Senator Amy Klobuchar, on her party’s failed hit job against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. McCain also pointed out how that Senate hearing has hurt Democrat chances in the upcoming midterms.
It’s midterm season on mainstream television, so if talking politics is a must for your mid-morning routine, switch the channel over to Ellen. Lately, all her lefty friends have been making appearances to plug for the Democrat ticket. Viewers who tuned in on Thursday received a real treat. The always-unhinged progressive femmebot Chelsea Handler hit the famous off-white couches to talk about the impending apocalypse should Dems lose power during the midterm elections.
The View co-host and ABC legal analyst Sunny Hostin made an outrageous argument on Thursday’s show that should raise eyebrows. Discussing Melania Trump’s comments stating we needed evidence when accusations of sexual assault are made, Hostin grew irate after co-hosts Abby Huntsman and Meghan McCain defended the need for due process. Objecting to the need for supporting evidence of any kind, Hostin gushed, “A woman’s word is enough!”
During Tuesday’s edition of At This Hour With Kate Bolduan, the eponymous host and her panel reacted to the impending departure of United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who announced that she would step down from her post at the end of this year. While Haley stressed that she has decided to step down out of respect for term limits, citing her six-year tenure as Governor of South Carolina and her two years as US Ambassador to the UN, the CNN panel didn’t buy that explanation as the primary reason for her departure.
