Here are a couple of easy immigration questions -- answerable with a simple “yes” or “no” -- we might ask any American of any political stripe: Does everyone in the world have a right to live in the U.S.? Do the American people have a right, through their elected representatives, to decide who has the right to immigrate to their country and under what conditions? I believe that most Americans, even today's open-borders people, would answer “no” to the first question and “yes” to the second.
Only on The View would you hear a host compare the radically leftist mayor of New York City to “a Republican.” That happened on Wednesday’s show, when the hosts gave Bill De Blasio a tougher shake than most news programs do, but still praised his socialist health care plan that guarantees free health care for illegal aliens. That’s when Joy Behar weirdly praised the mayor’s plan as sounding like a “small government” idea by “a Republican.”
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!"
CW’s Roswell, New Mexico is the latest example of television constantly rebooting its past shows. Unfortunately, it’s also another example of television constantly shoving a leftist agenda down our throats. This newest series does its part by propping up more propaganda on behalf of illegal immigrants.
So, when is a crisis a crisis? From what viewers see on Telemundo, NBC’s sister network for the U.S. Hispanic market, it all depends on who says so: if the cry comes from liberal media allies and activists, it’s “I told you so.” But should the word ‘crisis’ come from the mouth of President Trump, it’s “no way, José.”
View co-host Sunny Hostin once again showed just how blindly partisan she is on Tuesday’s show, arguing that anyone who agrees with Trump’s border wall is a racist bigot against “brown people.”
On Monday, CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Van Jones falsely claimed that Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer had not said they would never fund the President’s proposed border wall.
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.
As Tom Petty once sang, even the losers get lucky sometimes. The anti-Trump media has done a horrible job trying to convince Americans we shouldn’t have a wall at the southern border. But lo and behold, they’ve received a little gift from the gods -- a bit of serendipity to grasp at in the absence of an argument. A few days ago, writers for both CBS online and Variety uncovered an old 1950s TV episode in which a manipulative “con man” named Trump convinces a fear-stricken town to buy his wall. When you’re a partisan hack, that’s more than a whacky coincidence. It’s a fateful lesson from the past because the show’s plot twists “closely mirror what is happening today.”
During Thursday’s edition of All In With Chris Hayes, the eponymous host joined a long list of cable TV personalities who have smeared President Trump’s supporters or anyone supportive of building a wall on the southern border with Mexico as racist. As for Hayes, he delivered a monologue, which concluded with the assertion that the Trump base wants “an ethnically pure America.”
As Texas Republican Congressman Chip Roy appeared as a guest on CNN's Right Now show, host Brianna Keilar insisted that it is a "fact" that illegal immigrants commit crime at a lower rate than do U.S. citizens as the two debated whether there needs to be a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
A day after a trollish tweet for the ages that united people across the right side of the aisle against the media for a day-long dunk squad session, President Trump responded to a question Friday afternoon from CNN chief White House correspondent/carnival barker Jim Acosta by telling him “good job” on his Twitter videos on Thursday in McAllen, Texas that inadvertently made the case for a border wall.
