If there’s one thing the anti-Trump resistance members in the liberal media love more than themselves, it’s praising other like-minded people protesting the President. And if it’s people from another country, that’s even better. NBC demonstrated that love during Sunday Today when White House correspondent Kelly O’Donnell praises a dangerous aerial stunt at Trump’s Scotland resort as “spectacular.”
On Friday, the network morning shows devoted much of their coverage of President Trump’s visit to Britain on protesters “denouncing and mocking” him. Hosts and correspondents seemed to delight in the president receiving a “not-so-royal welcome” and being taunted by a giant balloon flying over the British capital “depicting Mr. Trump as an angry baby.”
Following Friday’s joint press conference in Chequers, England between President Donald Trump and U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May, NBC rushed to its safe space amongst their pals in the anti-Trump, far-left protesters marching the streets of London and fretting that the President tussled with reporters.
The establishment media couldn’t stump the Trump, the US politicians couldn’t derail the Donald’s campaign, and the purple-haired feminists couldn’t put a chink in his armor with all that screaming. Still there is one last hope. The petty pranksters and irreverent humorists in the UK have sworn to give the U.S. president the “trolling of a lifetime.”
The British people have been eagerly anticipating Trump’s visit to the UK this summer. Rolling out a rather cheeky welcome, the anti-Trumpers across the pond have prepared protests and even picked an official song to go with their rebellion, perfect for mocking the boisterous US leader: Green Day’s “American Idiot.”
On CNN Newsroom Monday morning, anchor Poppy Harlow barely pressed Democrat Rep. Pramila Jayapal about liberal, anti-ICE protesters threatening Republican leader Mitch McConnell over the weekend. While Jayapal has been a vocal supporter of abolishing ICE, she didn’t condemn the harassment, and actually seemed to justify it. Instead of demanding the Democrat condemn this behavior, Harlow caved easily to Jayapal’s flippant response.
On Saturday afternoon, during live coverage of liberal demonstrators protesting the enforcement of immigration laws, CNN weekend host Fredricka Whitfield gave liberal New York Times contributor Michael Eric Dyson and former NAACP president Cornell Brooks a forum to hyperbolically claim the Trump administration is "dehumanizing" illegal immigrants. At one point, Dyson even suggested that the detention of immigrants who crossed the border illegally was not only similar to slavery and Japanese internment, but even "more atrocious."
“No ban. No wall. No borders at all.” That is the radical rallying cry of the Democratic Socialists of America. Waving desecrated U.S. flags, grubby fists and ratty anarchy banners, DSA's professional protesters are targeting Trump administration officials, threatening immigration enforcement agents, and blockading detention facilities and processing centers nationwide.
It has only been a year since a deranged Democrat tried to pull off a mass assassination attempt against Republican Congressmen at a baseball practice. With the left’s targeting of Trump administration officials and others for harassment, which was being egged on by California Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D), many reasonable people were rightfully fearful that we might be headed for a tragedy. This didn’t escape the observation of the Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson on Tuesday as he asked media heads to take measures to stop the division and hatred.
Iranian civilians rose up in protest against their government on Monday, as the country’s economic situation continued to deteriorate in the wake of the United States pulling out of the nuclear agreement with a promise to reinstitute sanctions. The protests were the second major uprising this year and despite that fact, the Iran-friendly broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) failed to mention it during their evening newscasts. It may also have something to do with the protestors allegedly chanting “death to Palestine.” Just a hunch.
Part 5 (otherwise known as season 3, part 1) of The Ranch, starring Ashton Kutcher, was released June 15 on Netflix and our heroes just found out that the gas pipeline, which was going to bring them some much-needed financial relief, has been canceled thanks to protesters. When Rooster meets one of the protesters in a bar, he tells her she "fucked up a lot of peoples' lives with that protest" and realizes that is the one thing that could stop him from hitting on an attractive woman.
In a story about an oppressive near-future theocratic American society where women are treated like cattle to birth babies, everything is political. This week Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale even managed to weave a contemporary #MeToo narrative into the dystopian story based on the 1985 book by Margaret Atwood.
