Conservatives & Republicans
Since Robert Bork’s “borking” 30 years ago, Senate Judiciary Committee hearings for a high court nominee by a Republican president have become predictable. Democrats, who favor a “living Constitution,” meaning whatever they think the founding document ought to say, are pitted against “originalists,” who believe the document speaks for itself and should be taken as something only slightly less compelling than holy writ.
In a showcase of how much they could act like spoiled children, Senate Democrats (and liberal activists) spent most of Tuesday’s confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh obstructing the process and making a scene. Of course, many in the liberal media cheered on the behavior since they’re all on the same side. And on ABC’s World News Tonight, correspondent Terry Moran praised it as Democrats doing their job.
Leaving the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing to spend two segments hyperventilating over Bob Woodward’s upcoming book on the Trump White House, CNN Newsroom afternoon host Brooke Baldwin gave CNN contributor and anti-Trumper John Dean the floor to slam Kavanaugh. In addition, Baldwin misled viewers by not only just footnoting that Dean will testify later this week at Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing, but did not mention how he would be doing it as a witness on behalf of Senate Democrats to thwart Kavanaugh’s chances of reaching the Supreme Court.
During a softball interview with former Secretary of State John Kerry on Tuesday, to promote his new memoir, the hosts of CBS This Morning invited the Democrat to speculate on President Trump being removed from office, denounce Republicans, and talk about the possibility of a 2020 presidential run. Not one tough question was put to him about his tenure in the Obama administration.
Resuming the confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh Tuesday afternoon, Republican Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley blasted his Democratic colleagues and their liberal media allies for blatant hypocrisy when it came to criticism of the judicial branch of government, pointing to routine attacks on conservative Supreme Court justices.
Breaking in just after noon Eastern on Tuesday for Inside Politics, panelists expressed support for liberal Senators and protesters repeatedly disrupting and trying to delay the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing, declaring they “had no choice” and “definitely” have a point about Kavanaugh not being transparent with Americans concerning his time in the Bush White House.
On Monday's Deadline: White House on MSNBC, fill-in host Katy Tur not only repeated the discredited myth that the Barack Obama administration deported more illegal immigrants than previous Presidents, she complained because Donald Trump supporters refused to believe her when she presented them with her flawed data during the 2016 presidential campaign. The segment she was hosting also included the latest example of MSNBC blaming Fox News and conservative talk radio for many voters not believing the liberal media, rather than the media's biased reporting.
During Saturday’s memorial service to the life of Senator John McCain, some of the speakers decided it was a perfect time to get political and take shots at the sitting President. NBC’s Sunday Today picked up right where they left off and disturbingly touted their politicized eulogies and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd hyped suggestions of them being a “call to arms” against President Trump.
Eager to attack a potential new Trump administration policy dealing with sexual assault on college campuses, on Thursday, NBC’s Today show actually ignored its own reporting on the litany of problems with existing Obama-era policy. Instead, the story feared that Trump’s Department of Education was getting ready to silence sexual assault victims.
From the moment the late Republican Senator John McCain’s Arizona memorial service ended Thursday afternoon, CNN’s assembled panelists continued the embarrassing network’s obsession with tying McCain tributes to President Donald Trump, the latter’s attacks on the former, and how McCain was the anti-Trump.
Fact: The Washington Post is anti-Trump. Scenario: a former Trump administration official writes an op-ed in the Post that contains an explosive accusation. When the press confronts Trump with allegation, he says “you have a sufficient journalistic ability to make a conclusion (Except Jim Acosta -- you’re fake news).” Then the White House goes silent on the issue, refusing comment.
On Thursday, ABC’s Good Morning America ran wild with Democratic claims of racism against Florida Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis , hyping a “fierce backlash” and “firestorm” over the GOP congressman using a common expression during an interview on Wednesday while discussing the left-wing policies of his African-American opponent.
