Appearing on MSNBC, Richard Painter, who in 2018 ran as a Democrat for a US Senate seat from Minnesota, declared that President Trump's "goose is cooked," and that he should seek a plea deal and resign from the presidency.
In another legal victory for President Trump Tuesday, a California judge ordered porn star Stormy Daniels to pay almost $300,000 to President Trump to cover his legal fees because of her “meritless defamation lawsuit”. And just as they did when her case was originally thrown out, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) downplayed Trump’s victory during their newscasts. NBC ignored it all together.
During Sunday’s edition of Reliable Sources, the panel engaged in quite a bit of hyperbole when reacting to the latest developments in the Mueller investigation. Baltimore Sun Media Critic David Zurawik likened the Trump v. Mueller narrative, which he described as “a man of rectitude who believes in the rule of law versus a man who will say anything, who scorns law,” to a “battle for our national souls.” Never-Trumper David Frum, a staff writer for The Atlantic, pushed back on the idea that journalists cover President Trump too much, claiming that the President “has the potential to organized human life on this planet in seven minutes” and describing him as “one of three human beings on Earth who has the power to end life on this planet,” referring to the United States’ possession of nuclear weapons. Frum continued: “if there’s evidence that this person is mentally unstable or a criminal, that’s really newsworthy.”
On his MSNBC show, Hardball, Chris Matthews suggests that it would be a "witch hunt . . . to impeach a President for his sexual misconduct, even if it is illegal."
CNN media reporter and TV host Brian Stelter’s hatred for President Trump and Fox News was on full display during Sunday’s “Reliable Sources”. He spent most of the show decrying the President and Fox News while relegating the disturbing and horrific revelations in the sexual misconduct allegations against former CBS executive Les Moonves to a segment during the latter half of the program.
The liberal media grew increasingly excited at the prospects of impeaching President Trump over the weekend. So much so, that some were outright encouraging Democrats to pursue it. During an appearance on Sunday’s Meet the Press, Princeton University professor Eddie Glaude Jr. warned Democrats that if they didn’t impeach Trump, then they’ll be punished by their radical liberal base.
According to recent court filings, President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen told federal prosecutors that he was directed by the then-candidate to pay hush money to two women to help sway the outcome of the 2016 election. Even though Cohen admitted he had previously lied under oath to Congress, ABC and NBC spent part of their Sunday morning news programs suggesting it was all over for the Trump administration.
During the Friday edition of CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront, the eponymous host and her panel reacted to the latest developments in the Trump-Russia investigation, with a litany of memos on both Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort being released by the U.S. District of Southern New York and the Mueller team. As a whole, the panel seemed convinced that the memos may represent the smoking gun needed to take down President Trump. Not surprisingly, Nixon administration White House counsel and beloved CNN talking head John Dean found himself firmly in the pro-impeachment camp.
With the nation still in mourning from the passing of former President George H.W. Bush, NBC spent six minutes, 19 seconds during their Thursday evening broadcast on stories that amounted to bad news for President Trump and/or the Republican Party before they finally got around to mentioning the final day of the funeral services.
During Thursday’s edition of The View, the panel celebrated co-host Joy Behar's 20th anniversary as a co-host on the show. Not surprisingly, Behar had a very specific anniversary present in mind: the resignation of President Trump. The first part of the show focused on former Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s guilty plea for lying to Congress about some dates regarding conversations about a proposed Trump Tower in Moscow.
On Thursday, California Democratic Party chairman Eric Bauman resigned the position after allegations of sexual misconduct arose last week. The accusations were serious, with the state party vice chairman leading the charge for Bauman’s outer. But from when the story first broke last Saturday to Bauman’s resignation, the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) couldn’t be bothered to report any of it during their morning or evening news programs.
It has not been a good November for the so-called “creepy porn lawyer” and 2020 Democratic hopeful Michael Avenatti. First he was arrested for a domestic violence charge from a former girlfriend, then he had a restraining order filed against him from the same person. On Wednesday, his claim to fame porn star Stormy Daniels, had apparently cut ties with him and called him out for filing law suits against her wishes. Despite this stunning turn of events, CBS and ABC couldn’t be bothered to mention it.
