What a pathetic stable of late-night comics we have in America which, of course, includes ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel. On Monday’s show, the Trump portion of Kimmel’s monologue contained a ghoulish swipe at conservatives and CPAC attendees as the “largest gathering” of anti-vaxxers and heard from President Donald Trump, who Kimmel suggested has dementia.
MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough decried on Monday the rhetoric from last week's CPAC speakers, particular comparing Democrats to dictators. However, Scarborough seemed to forget his own show's guilt in frequently employing the same incendiary language.
When conservatives hear President Trump talk about conservatives "reclaiming our nation’s priceless heritage," they hear a reference to the Founders and to the founding documents. When CNN hears it, they hear Hitler and Putin. On Saturday afternoon, CNN anchor Ana Cabrera encouraged CNN analyst Samantha Vinograd -- a former Obama aide and current Biden Institute senior adviser -- to slime Trump with a Holocaust brush:
NATIONAL HARBOR, MD — Addressing a full capacity Potomac Ballroom inside the Gaylord National Harbor, President Donald Trump continued his annual tradition started in 2011 of addressing CPAC and, as expected, it was a quintessential Trump speech with riffs attacking everyone from Hillary Clinton to the liberal media to Robert Mueller, Jeff Sessions, and critics writ large for peddling “b***s***.”
Jim Acosta was infuriated when Fox News host Laura Ingraham made fun of him in a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday. Acosta just flat-out lied when he wasn't called on at a Trump press conference in Hanoi, claiming "the President steered clear largely during this news conference of the White House press corps and was instead selecting journalists at random from the other side of the room where there were foreign journalists seated.”
Conservative commentator Michelle Malkin gave a speech at the 2019 CPAC conference on Friday, which included a fiery call to action against big tech censorship. “Nice is not enough,” Malkin said. “Logic and facts and appeals to decency and fairness are not enough. Bemoaning double standards is not enough.” She proclaimed that the future of the party is conservative “disruptors” who will fight on the frontlines, by stating “our future will not be secured in a Fox News anchor chair or a think tank office or on a cruise ship or at a cushy GOP retreat. The future is on the frontlines.”
NATIONAL HARBOR, MD — Speaking Friday morning at CPAC to a full-capacity, raucous crowd of Trump supporters (with plenty of anti-Trump and anti-conservative media types in the back), Vice President Mike Pence took a few shots at the left, their media cohorts, and their friends in Hollywood for their refusal to acknowledge the worsening situation at the U.S.-Mexico border and possessing a disdain for religious liberty.
On Sunday's AM Joy, the show's panel of former Republicans joined far-left host Joy Reid in freaking out over the idea of encouraging some school teachers to carry concealed weapons to combat attacks on schools with Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin calling it President Donald Trump's "dumbest idea," Michelle Bernard fretting that teachers will shoot black students, and Kurt Bardella excoriating NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch as a "paid mercenary" who "has no soul," and is displaying "idiocy."
Deadline: White House host Nicolle Wallace has proven time and again to be one of MSNBC’s most outspoken Trump critics. But she outdid herself on Monday when she spent nearly the full hour mocking the President and trash talking Republicans, taking only the occasional break to report the news.
The liberal hosts of ABC’s The View opened Monday by opining how awful the modern conservative movement was, on their February 26 show. The hosts bashed this year’s CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) guests as “extremists” who were once considered part of the “fringe” but were now the majority of the Republican party.
The fourth episode of Showtime’s Our Cartoon President airing on February 25 titled “Family Leave” opened with a parody of Trump’s appearance at CPAC – the Conservative Political Action Conference – that took place over the weekend. Trump slams Mitt Romney’s run for the U.S. Senate by saying he can’t drink coffee because of his Mormon religious beliefs but he can “spit shine my nipples all the way to the United States Senate.”
MSNBC hosts Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle on Friday suffered a total meltdown after Donald Trump’s CPAC speech, foaming that the “strange,” “lie”-filled address was reminiscent of brutal dictators such as Fidel Castro and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Ruhle labeled the speech “absurd across the board.”
