Left-wing actor and activist Bradley Whitford, whose most famous for his role on The West Wing, appeared on ABC’s The View Friday to promote his newest project but the hosts mainly wanted him to rant about the "real" national emergency being gun violence, instead of illegal immigration.
After the media spent weeks hammering Republicans and the White House over the ongoing government shutdown – while claiming Democrats have “no incentive” to compromise – Politico reported on Wednesday that many freshman House Democrats were increasingly “concerned with the party’s strategy” and even “freaking out” over the possibility of a political backlash.
During Wednesday’s Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough and his panel reacted with scorn to President Trump’s Oval Office address. All told, the panel engaged in hyperbole; describing the Trump administration as a “Seinfeld presidency” and declaring the President himself a national emergency.
Congressional Democrats, like Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (NY), used to be in total support for barriers along the border before President Trump came along. It’s an inconvenient truth the liberal media refused to adequately acknowledge as they blamed Trump for the prolonged government shutdown. On Thursday, NBC Nightly News was in such denial of that truth that they sent correspondent Jacob Soboroff to the border to attack the effectiveness of Trump’s prototypes and the existing fencing.
Leading off his eponymous Fox News Channel show on Thursday, Tucker Carlson began with what seemed like a relatively innocuous open about how the government shutdown is “enter[ing] its fourth contentious week” with talks at “a stalemate.” But it was then that Carlson launched into a sarcastic monologue that demolished CNN's Jim Acosta for his pathetically stupid self-own in a series of videos at the U.S.-Mexico border that inadvertently bolstered the case for a wall.
Leading off Wednesday’s Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews gloated about the supposed failure of President Trump’s Tuesday night address on illegal immigration and the shutdown, dubbing him a “primetime loser” who’s “a spoiled child” and lost out in the ratings to the much-maligned and parodied Democratic response by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
President Trump has never hidden his disdain for many of the persons in the liberal press, whom he has often called “the enemy of the people.” An example of that dislike took place early Wednesday afternoon, when the GOP official was signing an anti-human trafficking bill into law. During the event, Trump offered to take questions from the reporters present, including Jonathan Karl, ABC’s chief White House correspondent, who demonstrated one of the reasons the president does not hold the mainstream media in high regard.
Committed liberal Donny Deutsch took to the Morning Joe airwaves on Thursday to warn his colleagues that Donald Trump is “winning” the government shutdown. Though no fan of the strategy, Deutsch grew frustrated at his fellow co-hosts, yelling, “He's winning here! You have to understand he's going to open the government. He's going to declare an emergency. He’s going to say, ‘The Democrats closed it.’ He's going to put the Democrats into court.”
Since the government shutdown began in late December, the media have made sure to repeatedly lay the blame solely on President Trump and Republicans in Congress. Not only did the press refuse to place any responsibility for the budget impasse on congressional Democrats, but reporters actually touted the notion that liberal lawmakers had “no incentive” to compromise.
On CNN's New Day, co-host Alisyn Camerota asks, regarding the partial government shutdown, "aren't Democrats to blame here as well?" She calls out Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer for refusing to make a counter-offer when VP Pence asked them for one at the conclusion of a White House meeting yesterday.
In the moments following President Trump’s address to the nation about border security on Tuesday, the liberal media sprinted to “fact-check” the President’s statements and claimed they were full of lies and misinformation. But in an appearance on Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, former Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan argued that it was the media that didn’t know what they were talking about.
The liberal media obsession with Rush Limbaugh dragged on into Wednesday’s Hardball in which the panelists questioned whether Vice President Mike Pence even has a “soul” for “kissing up” to Limbaugh earlier in the day and whether Trump and Limbaugh are the monkey and organ grinder or vice versa. Host Chris Matthews brought up Limbaugh in light of the government shutdown and the President standing firm on his promise of securing the southern border, leading to a government shutdown as Democrats have refused to support this proposal.
