President Obama constantly told falsehoods to the American people about how his policies worked, how they would be implemented, and what the benefits were. His most famous one, “if you like your health care plan, you can keep it” got him the Lie of the Year. But when President Trump does his own spinning, it all of a sudden becomes a moral conundrum for the liberal media. The stacked anti-Trump panel on NBC’s Meet the Press proved this point on Sunday when they debated when to call him a liar.
The Department of Justice's Inspector General dropped a bombshell report on Washington, D.C. on Thursday which detailed their deep dive into the FBI’s handling of the Clinton e-mail probe. It found that former FBI Director James Comey was insubordinate, validating President Trump’s decision to fire him, but it also found that a small group of FBI agents had it out to get candidate Trump. Despite those facts, both ABC and CBS tried to downplay the role those agents played in the Russia investigation.
Under the law, President Trump might be innocent until proven guilty, but that has not stopped the left from diagnosing him insane without a proper evaluation. On June 13th, the notoriously liberal news site, Salon, posted an interview with Dr. John Gartner discussing the state of President Trump’s mental health.
While broadcast networks ABC and CBS were skeptical about how the U.S.-North Korea agreement would turn out (a legitimate concern considering North Korea’s history of reneging on such deals), NBC Nightly News took a noticeably harsher tone and railed against President Trump. This decrying of Trump’s agreement comes after NBC has gone to bat time and time again for the radical Islamic regime of Iran and against our President.
When the two leaders were just a couple of hours from meeting each other, the liberal media were grasping at straws to find some way to attack and discredit the summit. On Monday’s (U.S. time) edition of CNN’s OutFront, host Erin Burnett was so desperate to find something to complain and fear monger about she actually suggested Trump was too jetlagged to be effective. It was something her panel pounced on to sew concern about the President’s ability to strike a deal.
Just a few hours before President Trump was scheduled to sit down with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un for a historic summit for peace and denuclearization on Monday, CBS correspondent Bianna Golodryga chided the President’s ability to negotiate in the United States’ best interest.
Ali Bashar, a 20 year-old Iraqi who sought and was rejected for asylum in Germany, has been arrested after fleeing to Kurdistan, and has now reportedly admitted to raping and killing 14 year-old Susanna Feldman in Wiesbaden in May. A New York Times report posted before that reported admission, as well as Associated Press items appearing both before and after it, betray a clear reluctance to acknowledge key facts in the case, and an overriding concern that opponents of Germany's permissive migration policy might gain political traction from this horrific crime.
On the front page of Sunday’s New York Times, environmental reporter Coral Davenport devoted over 2,000 words to the Trump administration's alleged "retreat from scince." The headline made the proposition clear: “In the Trump Administration, Science Is Unwelcome. So Is Advice.” To Davenport, "science" includes support for the liberal climate change consensus, and the Iran deal.
After rustling the feathers of foreign elitists at the G7 summit in Canada over the weekend, President Trump hopped on Air Force One and shot over to Singapore for Monday’s historic meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un. Of course, the liberal media was foaming at the mouth over Trump’s ability to push back against allies and the thought of something getting done with North Korea. The host of CNN’s Inside Politics, John King eagerly joined that bandwagon on Sunday and even said Trump was making Putin happy.
A highly-informed friend called me early Saturday afternoon and told me how impressed he was with Donald Trump's knowledge, temperament, and poise at the Saturday morning's press conference held just before the President was to leave for Singapore. Over at MSNBC, the guests on Saturday's AM Joy show certainly didn't view Trump's performance similarly. They relentlessly attacked Trump's mental health, physical health, and intelligence with a level of viciousness justifying questions about their mental health, physical health, and intelligence.
Christian baker Jack Phillips scored a major victory for religious freedom advocates on Monday after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 7-2 that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission discriminated against his religious beliefs. But there were some like CBS’s Stephan Colbert, who declared on The Late Show that night, that it was “a bad day for gay rights in America and also for cake rights.”
The Chicken Littles of cable news are in a full-scale panic over the latest fantasy disaster that hasn’t happened yet. Over the weekend, TV talking heads burst into flame in anticipation of the supposed “constitutional crisis” that might ensue if President Trump were to pardon himself – which he has not done, and which his lawyer has flatly stated he “has no intention” of doing.
