At the top of CNN’s anti-gun town hall, Wednesday, host and Antifa terrorist backer Chris Cuomo lashed out at the National Rifle Association for not subjecting themselves to the hate and rhetorical torture session they were treated to at the Parkland shooting town hall last year.
President Trump flew to Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas on Wednesday to visit with wounded and pay his respects to the people who were killed in a pair of mass shootings over the weekend. Instead of that kicking off their political overage for the night, CBS Evening News chose to champion former Vice President and Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden for tearing into the President while campaigning in Iowa.
When it comes to guns, the United States really needs to take lessons from the rest of the world. From enlightened, low-crime countries. You know: like Mexico. And Venezuela. That was the thrust of a hand-wringing CNN segment this morning. Narrated by Brit CNN correspondent Nick Paton Walsh, the chyron set the tone: "World Puzzled as U.S. Grapples with Latest Mass Shootings."
President Trump will be visiting with victims of both the Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas mass shootings on Wednesday and paying respects to those killed. But the liberal media seem annoyed that he was doing something thoughtful.
As NewsBusters research analyst Bill D’Agostino exposed Tuesday afternoon, the liberal broadcast networks were doing their best to avoid telling their viewers that the gunman behind the Dayton mass shooting was an admitted ‘leftist’. But ABC’s World News Tonight was the first flagship network news program to break that trend Tuesday evening when they footnoted that fact.
Just weeks after calling President Trump scarier than the characters in his novels, horror writer and outspoken left-winger Stephen King has turned his fire at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Responding to one of McConnell’s tweets addressing the tragic mass shooting in El Paso, King declared: “This is on you. You should be charged as an accomplice in these deaths.”
In the wake of the weekend's mass shootings, the liberal media have unleashed a deluge of false accusations and attempted political exploitation. But for sheer, vile, slander, it will be hard to top the calumny uttered by Nicolle Wallace on her MSNBC show Monday afternoon. Wallace actually claimed that President Trump is "talking about exterminating Latinos."
Mika Brzezinski has taken to an ugly new level the liberal media's accusations against President Trump in the wake of the weekend's mass shootings. On today's Morning Joe, Brzezinski actually accused the President of wanting such mass murders to happen: "Isn’t it okay to deduce that at this point this is what he wants? . . . I mean, this is a President who seems to want these things to happen. How else can this be explained?"
Despite President Trump’s full-throated denunciation of racism and white supremacy on Monday, NBC Nightly News was determined to place the weekend’s mass shootings at his feet. The network went to such extreme lengths for their narrative that they flew chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel all the way out to somewhere in Germany to give neo-Nazis a platform.
CBS Evening News used its B-block on Monday to speak with members of March for Our Lives, the radically anti-gun group that was founded by high school students after the shooting in Parkland, Florida. Together, the students and CBS reporter Adriana Diaz whined about the lack of progress on their efforts to push gun control.
The victims of the El Paso and Dayton mass shootings were set to become the next soapbox for CNN to stand on and shout at Second Amendment supporting Americans. On Monday, CNN announced they will host yet another anti-gun town hall on Wednesday to emotionally exploit grieving families. If that wasn’t slimy enough, the town hall was going to be moderated by Prime Time host and Antifa supporter Chris Cuomo.
Immediately following President Trump’s address on what his administration will do in response to the mass shootings over the weekend, ABC’s journalists were ready to pounce. Good Morning America co-anchors George Stephanopoulos and Cecilia Vega slammed Trump’s words as “empty” and “lacking self-reflection” on how his “rhetoric contributed” to these shootings. Stephanopoulos also complained to correspondent Mary Bruce about how Trump and Republicans weren’t doing anything to address gun control.
