Pittsburgh synagogue shooting
Continuing their theme of bashing President Trump on Tuesday night, NBC News reacted to his State of the Union address with scorn by slamming it as incoherent “additive” when not talking about immigration but showing strong affection for Stacey Abrams’s Democratic response that the network deemed “strong” because it “scolded the President.”
To put it objectively, CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta had quite the 2018. Whether he was throwing temper tantrums in White House briefings over CNN’s issue of the day or not being called on, 2018 saw Acosta become a hate object of sorts and a broader symbol of how much CNN loves CNN. For a year that began with him tussling with Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and ended with the controversy in which he briefly lost his press pass, here are the ten craziest Acosta moments.
CNN political commentator Tara Setmayer has been a diehard Never Trump while supposed still claiming to be a conservative, Republican, or something like that. But like almost cable news Republicans, she’s lurched leftward. On her October 30 podcast, she hypocritical lectured listeners that “words matter” and “we have to be better” while bashing Fox News for being a network that “jerks the President off every single day” and is filled with “political masturbation.” She also suggested that anyone who supports the President or any of his policies might as well support murderous drug dealers.
New York Times Nicholas Kristof has taken on an old nemesis, the National Rifle Association, in two multi-media pieces over the last two weeks – two weeks that have witnesses shooting tragedies. The Sunday Review brought the photo-heavy “Witness the N.R.A’s Evolution -- It’s magazine covers show how it shifted focus, to fanaticism.” A week earlier he said the group had been "hijacked by extremist leaders."
In the closing days before the midterm elections the liberal media went mad in their attacks on the GOP and especially President Donald Trump as they blamed his “racist” and violent rhetoric for the crazed actions of both the mail bomber and synagogue shooter. On CNN, a correspondent for GQ raged: “This President has radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did.” The following are the worst attacks on Trump and the GOP from their midterm election coverage.
"Some of my best friends are Jews." That familiar, yet offensive, phrase has been used by some people as a defense against an accusation of anti-Semitism. It's time, however, to rebrand it as a positive affirmation of love and concern for the Jewish people. In light of the latest mass shooting, this time at a Pittsburgh synagogue by a man who yelled "all Jews must die," there couldn't be a better time to reach out to Jewish friends and acquaintances with statements of support, and to publicly and loudly reject the hate directed at them.
WASHINGTON -- Last week, upon the arrest of this wretched man, Cesar Sayoc, I heard some good news. Within hours of his arrest, commentators on all sides admitted that, "Enough is enough." Let the recriminations subside. There will be no more virulent charges against the left or the right. Even President Donald Trump seemed to agree, and in his public appearances I detected a note of munificence. He was stepping forward as president of all the people.
During Wednesday’s Deadline: White House, host Nicolle Wallace and her panel had anything but words for President Trump. Panelist and Princeton University professor Eddie Glaude effectively blamed President Trump for the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting and a less reported shooting at Kentucky Kroger. Other panelists also expressed their displeasure with the President, labeling him a “white nationalist” and a “threat to American democracy.”
The true threat to this country’s stability is not one ethnicity or people group, CNN host Don Lemon lectured at the end of Chris Cuomo’s show Monday night, before contradicting himself by stating that white conservative men are actually the biggest terror threat America faces.
On CNN, Alisyn Camerota lumps President Trump with the accused Pittsburgh mass murderer. Regarding migrants, Camerota says Trump is, "frankly, I have to say it, using some of the same language that the mass murderer at the synagogue used . . . It's hard for him to celebrate his narrative of vilifying migrants when, again, the alleged mass murderer did the same thing."
