For the second show in a row, the hosts of The View promoted the idea Monday, that newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh lied and perjured himself before the Senate during his testimony two weeks ago.
Is Brett Kavanaugh like the knife-wielding psychopath Michael Myers in the Halloween franchise? Jamie Lee Curtis, the star of five films in the horror series, is appearing on multiple media outlets to link the fictional stalking of her character, Laurie Strode, to the real-world accusations in the Kavanaugh case. Appearing on The View, Curtis compared, “And the heroine of Halloween is a woman who suffered a trauma when she was 17 like Dr. Ford when she was 17.” Trying to make the connection, the actress touted the topicality of the new Halloween: “But it’s actually about something. The movie is about trauma.”
On Sunday’s 60 Minutes, correspondent Scott Pelley conducted a hostile interrogation of Republican Senator Susan Collins, aghast at her decision to support the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. At the same time, he treated Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp as a “rare” hero for voting against Kavanaugh.
The cast of Morning Joe (Mika, Joe, Meacham, and Barnicle) put on their bitter-beer faces. They castigate Republicans for celebrating the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh with brewskis, and rip Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell for their roles. "A shabby Senate, with a short-sighted, selfish, cynical, Majority Leader who cared more about his political party and his own political ambitions than the country itself," said Joe.
On Sunday afternoon, as Doris Kearns Goodwin appeared on both CNN and MSNBC to promote her new book, the longtime NBC presidential historian fretted that after Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation, the U.S. Supreme Court will go to the right on abortion, voting rights, and other issues, and on CNN called the possibilities "worrisome."
Appearing on Saturday's CNN Newsroom to discuss Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court, CNN presidential historian Douglas Brinkley predicted that he will have a "stain" that he will "carry for the rest of his life," and suggested that conservative Chief Justice John Roberts may move further to the left because he has "great intellect," as if intelligence implies being more liberal.
After defending the liberal media’s anti-Brett Kavanaugh crusade Saturday night, CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter got rebuked by former CNN bureau chief Frank Sesno on Sunday. According to Sesno, the media’s coverage of President Trump was “unrelentingly negative”. He then ripped into the utter lack of standards the media employed before running with uncorroborated allegations against the Supreme Court nominee.
Many in the liberal media scoff when President Trump or others on the right point out that leftists pay protesters to show up and organize. During ABC’s This Week on Sunday, the network’s chief White House correspondent Jon Karl sought to discredit the assertion since the President noted it at a rally the previous night. But he didn’t appear to get the answer he was looking when Vice News D.C. Bureau Chief Shawna Thomas appeared to admit that there were people paid to organize.
It was like election night 2016 all over again for the liberal media hit squads that tried desperately to sink Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation. The liberal media were so incensed that they were describing it as one of the darker times in American history and started to call the court’s legitimacy into question. During NBC’s Sunday Today, host Willie Geist was so confused by their radical tactics failing that his first question was simple: “what just happened over the last month?”
With Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh newly sworn into the Supreme Court, CNN host S.E. Cupp wanted to discuss how “the media has played a starring role” in tearing down the Judge during her Unfiltered program. CNN media reporter Brain Stelter joined her Saturday evening where they defended the media’s antics and downplayed their anti-Kavanaugh fervor as simple “sloppiness.”
Just seconds after Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the United States Supreme Court, MSNBC hosts suffered a meltdown, raging against a country founded on “the idea that being a free white” man gives you all the power. Host Joy Reid suggested that returned on Saturday as Mitch McConnell imposed a form of tyranny. Reid slimed, “Mitch McConnell has decided that order means that people like Mitch McConnell, men like him rule. He believes in rule. Democrats tend to believe in governing. Republicans believe in rule.”
The USA Today ran an abhorrent story this week, the kind no news outlet should have let pass the pitch phase. The newspaper published a story saying Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh cannot be trusted around children. The following excerpt is from the original story, courtesy of The Federalist. Here’s betting fellow “journalist” Tom Arnold of Vice fame won’t even bother to make amends for his statements. Arnold picked up that horrific theme on his Twitter account this week.
