Liberals & Democrats
If you somehow combined history’s most evil, genocidal maniacs into one super-baddie, according to comedian Larry David, that wicked incarnation would still have more redeeming qualities than President Trump. During an interview with The New York Times, the creator of “Seinfeld” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” told the outlet about his time in coronavirus quarantine, expressed his noxious opinion of the current president and made an effusive plug for Hillary Clinton’s new Hulu documentary.
As we near day 20 or so of coronavirus quarantine, the wailing and gnashing of liberal teeth on social media is reaching a fever pitch. Hollywood celebrities have reached new lows in their anger for the president and conservatives, with venom-filled entertainers like comedian Sarah Silverman fully admitting that they “hate” President Donald Trump and what she considers pro-Trump media.
When the Cable News Network debuted in 1980, it soon earned a reputation as the top source for quick and accurate information 24 hours a day, all week long. That was 40 years ago, and the liberal channel has since fallen so far in the ratings that it was unable to generate even one program in the top 20 list during the first three months of 2020, which has been labeled “a dismal first quarter.”
The Washington Post sure misses irony, well unless their latest fawning book review is a big joke, because they touted the new memoir of anti-semitic activist Linda Sarsour as a fearless work aimed a destroying the “normalization of hate.” Really, Linda Sarsour? The Israel-hating, Hamas-fraternizing defender of Sharia law who was removed from far-left orgs like the Women’s March because she was a liability for their image? You’ve got to be joking.
Members of the media should take note: when even a Democrat politician from one of the most liberal states in the country won’t take your bait to bash the president, maybe you should just throw in the towel now. On The View today, California’s Governor Gavin Newsom called in to discuss how his state is responding to COVID-19. Of course the anti-Trump hosts attempted to get the liberal Democrat to attack President Trump, but surprisingly, Newsom praised the president instead.
One day after county officials linked the outbreak of coronavirus in New Orleans to its celebration of Mardi Gras culminating on February 25, the city’s Democrat mayor was invited on The View to do some damage control. But instead of taking responsibility, LaToya Cantrell put the blame on Trump, just as the media has done.
Thankfully, not everyone in showbiz thinks Hollywood virtue-signaling is the most charming thing in the universe. Recently, celebrity podcast host Joe Rogan had a mouthful for the glamorous Hollywood stars who put out a video compilation of them singing a cheesy John Lennon song during Chinese virus quarantine.
"There are no libertarians in a global pandemic." So goes the smug punchline of large-government advocates who point to the necessity of collective action in the face of an unprecedented global crisis. Without government, they say, we'd all be dead. Few libertarians would disagree. The hardcore libertarians at Reason magazine aren't spending their days fulminating over the evils of government-required lockdown orders in the face of a fast-spreading, deadly disease. That's because they, like all other sentient human beings, recognize that collective action is sometimes necessary.
Since Tuesday, liberal journalists on CNN and MSNBC have been teaming up with elected Democrats to shoot down the notion that their collective obsession with impeaching President Trump slowed the federal government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. The biased coverage argued the “talking point” was “dangerous” and predicted that it would not “pick up much traction.”
Don’t be fooled. Though Ellen Degeneres may be the pleasant, smiling face of popular daytime talk show Ellen, some of the people calling the shots behind the scenes aren’t quite as jovial and happy-go-lucky as their brand pays them to appear. Though he tries to toe the well-adjusted, normal guy line for the sake of his career, Ellen executive producer Andy Lassner turns into a quaking, rage-filled troll every time President Trump tweets.
Hollywood’s hatred for President Trump and his supporters is a bottomless pit. Actor, Bernie Sanders lover and rabid Trump-hater John Cusack proposed another depraved solution to the pesky problem that is Trump: We will just impeach him again.
In a softball interview with likely Democratic nominee Joe Biden aired late Tuesday night, MSNBC anchor Brian Williams urged the former Vice President to hold President Trump personally “culpable” and “responsible” for coronavirus deaths in the United States.
