Speaker Nancy Pelosi canceled Trump's State of the Union, and drew rave reviews from the press. None of them saw the n ext move coming: Trump canceled her trip abroad, due to same excuse -- security concerns. The media were furious at a "childish" president offering tit for tat. Never troll the King of Trolls.
CNN Newsroom presented a predictable reaction to President Trump’s Saturday afternoon remarks that offered a compromise to Democrats on immigration and government shutdown, blasting Trump’s speech as “inflammatory” filled with “misinformation and scare-mongering tactics” trying to still make “Trump’s little racist wall” happen.
Moments after MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell read a statement from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accusing President Trump of endangering U.S. troops in Afghanistan by publicly postponing the Democratic leader’s trip to the war-torn country, Capitol Hill correspondent Garrett Haake insisted that Pelosi actually “held back quite a lot” when it came to trashing Trump.
When Speaker Pelosi called for the State of the Union address to be postponed, network morning show anchors celebrated it as a “bold” move and a “power play” — until they needed an excuse to criticize the President for retaliating. President Trump responded Thursday to Pelosi’s move by cancelling her military flight overseas, prompting those same network hosts to redefine the whole ordeal as a “petty feud.”
Though not as hyperbolic or inconsolable as CNN and MSNBC were earlier in the day, Thursday’s Hardball still featured host Chris Matthews revolting over the President’s last-minute decision to cancel Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s overseas trip, dubbing it a “cheap shot” letter that “doesn’t look good for the country.” Beyond that, Matthews speculated without evidence about what would happen “if something goes wrong” with government workers furloughed and stressed.
In similar fashion to their fellow lefties at CNN, MSNBC Live was beside itself on Thursday afternoon after President Trump’s letter canceling Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s overseas visits to Afghanistan, Brussels, and Egypt. Host Katy Tur and assembled panelists blasted the “childish” “man baby” of a President for actions further illustrating the need for his removal via impeachment or the 25th Amendment.
File this one as yet another instance in which the liberal media took President Trump’s bait, hook, line, and sinker, launching into apocalyptic meltdowns and illustrating for the American public how, for those on the right not in The Resistance, they’re the opposition party. On Thursday afternoon, CNN suffered a network-wide meltdown over Trump’s letter canceling Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s overseas trip less than an hour before take-off, calling the President a “childish” and “cranky” schoolboy who’s only concerned about “pure politics.”
The latest pettiness in American politics was Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Wednesday suggestions to President Trump that since the government was shut down he should postpone his State of the Union address or find another venue. Being the Democratic Party cheerleaders that they were, ABC’s World News Tonight praised it as Pelosi’s “bold power play” against a Republican President.
On New Day, Alisyn Camerota asked why President Trump hasn't accepted a deal that would end the partial government shutdown. Co-host John Berman, referring to a statement by Ann Coulter, offered an explanation, saying he had "a sign, a word from up above." CNN commentator John Avlon interjected: "whoa, whoa: directionally off!"
Our friends at Grabien spotted a solid example on Monday morning’s New Day of CNN bias as co-host Alisyn Camerota asserted that it’ll be “shame on” Democrats if they “can’t seize on” the President’s “waffling” during the government shutdown, adding that “this is their moment.” Yikes. It sounds like she was trying to be a coach giving her players a motivational pep talk before playing in a championship game against an arch rival.
Monday on ABC’s Good Morning America, the network continued blasting Republicans and President Trump for the government shutdown while defending Democrats, touting their new poll which showed more Americans blamed the GOP instead of Democrats for the shutdown. However ABC’s credibility is shot on who is to blame for government shutdowns, as they tend to blame Republicans for shutdowns no matter who is in office.
In the latest installment of the broken clock known as CNN being occasionally right, Friday morning’s CNN Newsroom featured co-host Poppy Harlow taking freshman Democratic Congresswoman Katie Hill (CA) to task for her party thus far refusing to compromise with the President and Republicans on securing the southern border.
