During Tuesday’s edition of At This Hour With Kate Bolduan, the eponymous host and her panel reacted to the impending departure of United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who announced that she would step down from her post at the end of this year. While Haley stressed that she has decided to step down out of respect for term limits, citing her six-year tenure as Governor of South Carolina and her two years as US Ambassador to the UN, the CNN panel didn’t buy that explanation as the primary reason for her departure.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough says that Republicans got a "huge bump" from the Kavanaugh hearings, whereas the hearings were "a disaster for the Democratic party."
On Good Morning America Wednesday, ABC previewed an upcoming one-on-one interview with First Lady Melania Trump that will air next week. Anchor Tom Llamas didn’t hold back from confronting Mrs. Trump on controversial topics, even at one point, scolding the First Lady for not being sensitive enough to the #MeToo movement.
You know, for all the times CNN host Chris Cuomo has reminded us that he was a lawyer at one time, he sure does like throwing out the rule of law to administer his own form of wicked justice. Just last August, he rationalized the leftist violence of Antifa, arguing that they had “morality” on their side and were fighting an “evil” regime. During Tuesday’s PrimeTime, the raging CNN host argued that we should throw out the presumption of innocence for Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
For the first 11 minutes of Tuesday night’s Hardball on MSNBC, the clownish Chris Matthews and his panel held a glorified get out the vote (GOTV) rally for Democrats. But began with Matthews gloating about his midterm forecast from April ended with the crude suggestion that America has been victimized by Trump like Dr. Christine Blasey Ford alleged she was by Brett Kavanaugh.
In the midst of the Kavanaugh show trial with the Senate Judiciary Committee back on September 27, longtime Democratic staffer Jackson Cosko released personal information (including the home addresses) for Republican members of the committee.This act of “doxxing” went all but ignored by the liberal media for almost two weeks. On Tuesday, a judge denied him bail and the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) continued their total blackout.
After an 11-minute-long Get Out the Vote (GOTV) effort for Democrats on Tuesday’s Hardball, MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews falsely claimed that anti-Kavanaugh protesters weren’t paid to physically corner and verbally harass Senators or try to break into the Supreme Court, comparing claims the mob was paid for to birtherism concerning Barack Obama. If that wasn’t enough, cable news pleaser and faux Republican David Jolly hailed the leftist mob while suggesting that the Tea Party movement itself is violent.
During Sunday’s edition of MSNBC Live With Yasmin Vossoughian, the panel had few kind words about Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court. Guest Danielle Moodie-Mills remarked on guest host Richard Lui’s comment that President Trump had a very good week, saying “it’s just funny to me that a good week for Donald Trump is a horrible week for our democracy and the American public.” Mills added that “if this President is proud of a stolen seat and proud of now two sexual predators being on the Supreme Court, that is not a legacy that I would want” before expressing her desire for a “blue tsunami.”
View co-host Meghan McCain on Tuesday called out the hypocrisy of her liberal co-host Joy Behar. Discussing Brett Kavanaugh and sexual abuse claims against powerful politicians, McCain reminded, “Joy has also said that Al Franken should come back [to the Senate]. She has publicly on the show.”
In a speech announcing her vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) reminded me of some of the great orators of the past. Her speech was measured in tone, substantive in content and delivered with conviction. Collins is no conservative. She has voted in favor of abortion and same-sex marriage while towing a more moderate line on economics. Her speech supporting Kavanaugh and denouncing the smears against him and the distortion of his judicial record was as good as any delivered by her more conservative colleagues.
CNN has made a hero out of Kaitlan Collins, after the young White House correspondent was banned from one press briefing for her petulant behavior a few months ago. But maybe they should make sure their reporters actually know what they’re talking about before giving them important assignments like reporting from the swearing-in ceremony of the next Supreme Court justice.
Where do we go as a nation in the wake of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation? Is it possible to bridge the current partisan divide? Well, according to the writers at Vogue, to hell with that. The time is right for a French Revolution-style uprising. Since when did fashion bloggers turn into full-blown anarchists?
