Liberals & Democrats
On her 9:00 a.m. ET hour show on Monday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle derisively labeled President Trump’s upcoming peace summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un as nothing more than “a brilliant PR stunt that doesn’t get us anywhere,” but fretted to her panel of liberal pundits that he could get political gain from the meeting, “does this end up being a strong talking point for President Trump?”
A broken clock is right twice a day, right? Well it appears on Monday’s edition of Morning Joe that MSNBC host Joe Scarborough watered his long-neglected and often-forgotten blue collar roots. Firstly, he reminded the largely anti-Trump audience of Sunday night's Tony Awards that the “low light of the evening” was “brought to you by Robert de Niro.”
Thursday’s Hardball featured MSNBC host Chris Matthews spending two separate segments sucking up to former Obama foreign policy and intelligence officials John Brennan and Ben Rhodes, complimenting the former for “know[ing] so much” and the latter for his “beautiful” new book defending his role in the far-left Obama legacy.
It’s certainly no surprise that Sean Hannity disagrees with many of the comments made by Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC. However, the prime-time Fox News Channel host went far further than that during his Thursday program, when he criticized the co-host of Morning Joe for claiming President Trump is “upset” that he can’t access pornography in the White House.
Snopes.com's so-called "fact checks" are so often inane — NewsBusters has caught it "fact-checking" an obviously satirical post — that it's tempting to dismiss it as irrelevant. That would be a mistake. It's therefore important to call sites like Snopes out when they play their deceptive "fact check" games. That's what the site's Bethania Palma definitely did in discussing a claim about California's recently-passed water-use legislation.
On Friday’s Today show, NBC correspondent Anne Thompson seized on a story being promoted by New York Democrats about an illegal immigrant being arrested and on the verge of deportation for having an outstanding federal warrant. Rather than acknowledge that immigration law was being properly enforced, the reporter denounced the “controversy,” “anguish,” and “nightmare” caused by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement action.
On Friday, Morning Joe hosts took turns tearing into former New York City Mayor and Donald Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani. Again, they went off the rails after replaying a clip of his recent criticisms of porn star Stormy Daniels, who recently accused President Trump of having a consensual affair with her in 2006.
It’s not unusual for viewers of Morning Joe to hear people attack President Trump. However, the crew of the MSNBC weekday series took the discussion to a new low on Thursday, when co-host Joe Scarborough and contributor John Heilemann criticized the GOP occupant of the White House on his reaction to rumors about the First Lady’s health. The clash began on Wednesday, when the President tweeted: "The Fake News Media has been so unfair, and vicious, to my wife and our great First Lady, Melania."
Reacting on Thursday morning’s CNN Newsroom to Samantha Bee’s jumbled apology the night prior for calling First Daughter Ivanka Trump the c-word, CNN political commentator and HLN host S.E. Cupp took Bee to task for her apology being “couched in like a dozen different codicils” and, worst of all, “virtue-signaling” without a heartfelt apology to Ivanka herself.
On her 9:00 a.m. ET hour show on Thursday, NBC anchor Megyn Kelly called out left-wing Full Frontal host Samantha Bee for only “sort of” apologizing for the vile attack she launched against First Daughter Ivanka Trump. While giving Bee credit for showing some degree of remorse on her TBS show Wednesday night, Kelly made it clear that simply claiming to be a “comedian” was not “an adequate excuse” for hurling such “deeply offensive” invective.
Appearing on the Wednesday edition of FBN’s Making Money, MRC President Brent Bozell ripped the liberal media and CNN in particular for their advanced case of Trump Derangement Syndrome showing with their “embarrassing” and “insulting” “gossip” about First Lady Melania Trump’s health.
TBS Full Frontal host and comedian Samantha Bee has been feeling the heat since her crass May 30 declaration that Ivanka Trump was a “feckless c**t” who should seduce her father to change immigration policy. But during what started out on Wednesday night sounding like a sincere apology, Bee appeared to shift the blame for the firestorm onto the media. And suggested they preferred to focus on her insult instead of the message she was trying to convey about immigration.
