View co-host Meghan McCain was the only one at the table on Thursday’s show to call out their Democrat guest, Senator Amy Klobuchar, on her party’s failed hit job against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. McCain also pointed out how that Senate hearing has hurt Democrat chances in the upcoming midterms.
It’s midterm season on mainstream television, so if talking politics is a must for your mid-morning routine, switch the channel over to Ellen. Lately, all her lefty friends have been making appearances to plug for the Democrat ticket. Viewers who tuned in on Thursday received a real treat. The always-unhinged progressive femmebot Chelsea Handler hit the famous off-white couches to talk about the impending apocalypse should Dems lose power during the midterm elections.
In an absurd segment Wednesday afternoon on CNN, political commentator Chris Cillizza and CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin slammed President Trump for not immediately condemning the Saudi Arabia government as akin to “believing” Justice Brett Kavanaugh and climate change skeptics.
On Sunday evening's CNN Newsroom, during a segment with liberal CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill, host Ana Cabrera wrongly claimed that President Donald Trump had lamented that it is a scary time for "white men" when in reality his actual quote did not mention race at all but referred to "young men."
Why didn’t the “hilarious” Matt Damon impersonation of Brett Kavanaugh doom the conservative judge’s nomination? That’s an apparently serious question posed on CNN.com, Monday. The online article by Bill Carter set out to answer the query no one asked: “Why Matt Damon's hilarious SNL skit couldn't stop the Kavanaugh confirmation.”
Republican Senator from Nebraska Ben Sasse was on The View Monday to talk about his new book about combatting America’s partisan “tribalism." But the liberal hosts at the table mostly wanted to grill Sasse on his politics, from voting with the president the majority of the time, to voting to confirm Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Actress and liberal activist Alyssa Milano appeared on Good Morning America Monday to talk about the one year anniversary of the #MeToo movement which she helped start. Milano, who has been a vocal critic of President Trump and Republicans, also took time to bash President Trump for raising concerns about false accusations, saying that he was only afraid of “progress” because “white men” were losing their power.
On Friday's night's All Things Considered, the Week in Politics segment began by pushing the theme that the Republican rhetoric about "mobs" is all wrong, and will harm them in the midterms. NPR anchor Ailsa Chang brought no context about protesters mobbing the front door of the Supreme Court, or screaming Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife out of a restaurant. She said the "mob" has a lot of women in it, so the M-word is damaging. At least David Brooks said "I don't think so."
We’re about halfway through this year’s edition of Sarah Silverman’s I Love You America, and the end can’t come soon enough. With Kavanaugh derangement, Trump derangement, and a downright hatred for conservatives, the Hulu show has been leftist spiral after unfunny leftist spiral. Now October 11 brought another episode with all 3 awful features plus a bonus lecture on climate change. Yippie!
The New York Times carefully sandwiched the disturbing Democratic trend of increasing mob behavior by liberals and Democrats -- culminating in the hysterical reaction to Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation -- into a story that made it about a hypocritical Trump. Reporter Peter Baker put the onus on the president, not the mob-instigation of his political opponents in “‘Unhinged’? No, Trump Tells Opponents, You Are.” The online headline underlined that Trump-centric spin: “Trump’s Contradiction: Assailing ‘Left-Wing Mob’ as Crowd Chants ‘Lock Her Up.’
The View co-host and ABC legal analyst Sunny Hostin made an outrageous argument on Thursday’s show that should raise eyebrows. Discussing Melania Trump’s comments stating we needed evidence when accusations of sexual assault are made, Hostin grew irate after co-hosts Abby Huntsman and Meghan McCain defended the need for due process. Objecting to the need for supporting evidence of any kind, Hostin gushed, “A woman’s word is enough!”
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.
