So, just like macabre clockwork. With Thursday’s mass shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, California, there were routine calls for more gun control from the liberal media machine. During their evening broadcasts, CBS and NBC tried to scare the wits out of their viewers by dubiously claiming that there had been 307 mass shooting this year alone, or almost one a day. But that was a lie.
During Wednesday’s Deadline: White House, host Nicolle Wallace and her panel had anything but words for President Trump. Panelist and Princeton University professor Eddie Glaude effectively blamed President Trump for the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting and a less reported shooting at Kentucky Kroger. Other panelists also expressed their displeasure with the President, labeling him a “white nationalist” and a “threat to American democracy.”
President Trump and his family visited the Tree of Life synagogue on Tuesday to pay their respects to the victims of Saturday’s attack. While there, protesters took to the streets to denounce his visit much to the delight of the liberal media. So much so, that ABC spent more time during World News Tonight focused on the protesters than the actual funerals going on that day.
According to the rage-fueled tirade of MSNBC faux Republican strategist Steve Schmidt during Monday’s edition of All In, presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway, the President, “Mark Levin, and Rush Limbaugh, and Breitbart, and NewsBusters, and Judicial Watch, and all the rest of them, have blood on their hands for the incitements that they have made that have triggered and radicalized these crazy people.”
All Monday morning, CNN spent their time blaming President Trump for the horrific synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh by an avowed anti-Semite over the weekend. CNN’s John Berman tried to get just about every guest on CNN’s three hour morning show New Day, to denounce Trump as inspiring a murderer, but former Democrat vice presidential nominee Joe Lieberman wasn’t buying Berman’s spin.
The day after an anti-Semite killed 11 people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and a week of political violence, NBC’s Sunday Today exploited the opportunity by trying to tie it all to President Trump. On top of that, the network suggested that the only hope to stop the violence was to send Trump a message at the ballot box by voting against him and the GOP.
In the midst of interviewing government officials responsible for coordinating the federal response to Hurricane Florence, all three broadcast Sunday shows harangued those relief workers with questions about President Trump’s recent comments about Hurricane Maria.
Just when you thought they couldn’t go any lower or get any dirtier. In the midst of their September 11th broadcast, NBC Nightly News took below the belt shots at President Trump. They juxtaposed the number of deaths in Puerto Rico from Hurricane Maria with those killed 17 years ago. Then they made it seem as though he was “commemorating” the anniversary of the attack by “pumping his fist”. All while ignoring the son of a 9/11 victim begging Democrats to stop playing games with the event.
What greater way to honor the thousands of lives lost in the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil than to use its anniversary to slam our current president? Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough apparently thought this was a great idea, when he wrote in the Washington Post that President Trump is a graver threat to the American dream than the September 11 terrorists.
On his primetime show Monday evening, host Chris Cuomo praised the counter-protesters who showed up in the thousands to the paltry “Unite the Right” rally in Washington D.C., Sunday. In that crowd were “anti-fascist” and Black Lives Matter activists, who heckled and cursed at the police, Secret Service and journalists for showing up. The liberal activists even threw eggs, fireworks and water bottles at officers while concealing their identities with face masks.
CNN host Chris Cuomo wrapped up the first hour of Prime Time by emphatically ranting about President Trump not ordering American flags be flown at half-staff to honor the five journalists killed during the Capital Gazette shooting. According to his speculation, it was because of Trump’s “insensitivity to the dead” and his hatred for the press.
Two recent Associated Press dispatches have exposed how out of touch two of its reporters are with the dominant Second Amendment-defending views of voters and politicians in Texas. They also are flummoxed that most of the students who survived Friday's school shooting in Santa Fe haven't turned into rabid gun-control advocates.
