El Paso/Dayton shootings
Following a Sunday Good Morning America segment praising Democratic 2020 hopefuls for calling a stringent gun control measures, ABC chief anchor and Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos took a swipe at President Trump for talking with the NRA. He then seemed to suggest the United States didn’t have background checks on firearm purchases.
Not surprisingly, Real Time host Bill Maher devoted his opening monologue Friday night to trashing President Trump and blaming him in light of last weekend's mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton. Maher implied that President Trump received a “story by” credit for the massacre in the killer’s manifesto. Maher began by talking about how El Paso and Dayton are “still reeling from two disasters: a mass shooting, and a Trump visit.”
AllSides, a media technology company that provides media bias ratings and balanced news across the political spectrum, conducted an audit of Google’s “Top Stories” section following the two mass shootings that occurred in Dayton, OH and El Paso, TX last weekend. The findings reveal a heavy preference for CNN and left-leaning media outlets overall, reinforcing previous audits completed by AllSides and researchers at Northwestern University.
Closing out Friday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, host Brooke Baldwin closed with a lengthy, tear-filled commentary tacitly promoting the need for gun control, expressing disgust with anyone who’s not a liberal (like her), and further underlying the liberal media’s penchant for instilling fear in racial minorities and the wider public that they could be mass shooting victims.
Few things are more upsetting than watching the media, including the nation´s Spanish-language newscasts, turn a tragedy into a political issue. The massacre that took place at a Walmart store in El Paso, Texas, provided all of the liberal media with the perfect scenario to do so non-stop.
It got really ugly this past week as anchors, reporters, hosts and celebrities blamed Donald Trump’s “racist” rhetoric for the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton. The following are just a few of the ugliest attacks on President Trump, Republicans, conservatives and gun owners from journalists and celebrities in the wake of the mass shootings.
The exploitation of mass shootings on the part of leftist late-night hosts in order to further their gun grabbing agenda has unfortunately become common practice in the aftermath of a tragedy. Thursday’s The Daily Show with Trevor Noah used an unusual, gauche tactic to push for their gun control demands.
Somebody forgot to tell MSNBC analyst Karine Jean-Pierre that the liberal media aren't supposed to openly admit — let alone celebrate — the fact that they're united in opposition to President Trump. Thursday on Deadline White House, host Nicolle Wallace noted that all the Dem presidential candidates are "singing from one song sheet" in attacking Trump.
According to the “mainstream media,” whatever President Trump does is wrong. If he wants to visit the two cities where mass shootings took place last weekend, he should not do that while the people there are in mourning. If he still goes and dares to refer to himself and his staff while praising the actions of the medical personnel treating the victims, that’s wrong as well. Not surprisingly, that was the case when Don Lemon, host of the weekday program CNN Tonight, criticized Trump on Wednesday evening by stating: “It’s not about you. It’s not about YOU. For once!”
The liberal media were continuing to stir the pot of hate against President Trump on Thursday with ABC’s World News Tonight, and congressional correspondent Mary Bruce gushing about Democratic presidential candidates on the campaign trail in Iowa calling President Trump a “white supremacist”.
Politicians and pundits are promoting familiar explanations, excuses, and demands following the tragic mass murders in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. From pushing more gun laws to blaming President Trump, conservative talk radio and Fox News, we've heard it all before. One question no one is asking: why is evil rampant in our country? I don't mean obvious evil like the all too frequent mass murders. There are other evils, which seem to have come from the “pit” and are roaming among us uncontrolled.
Just a week after giving a lecture on the importance of student loan forgiveness, supposed comedian Samantha Bee devoted her opening monologue to giving a lecture on gun control during Wednesday’s edition of Full Frontal. Bee expressed her desire to “get rid of the guns” before dismissing the idea that mental illness was a contributing factor in the El Paso mass shooting: “being a racist monster isn’t a mental illness...in fact, you can be one and be a very stable genius.” Bee was obviously implying that President Trump, who once referred to himself as a “stable genius,” was also a “racist monster.”
