The Special Counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election dropped federal indictments on 13 Russian nationals on Friday, stunning Washington, DC. And in a press briefing a short time later, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told the media that the indictments had no allegations against Americans because none were “knowing participants” in the plot and the election outcome was not swayed. But that didn’t sit well with a CNN Newsroom panel who couldn’t seem to wrap their heads around it.
So just how desperate is the ranking Democrat of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, to find any materials proving collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia? Apparently desperate enough to buy into a wild prank pulled off by a pair of Russian comedians to the extent that he spent eight minutes with them on the phone in an attempt to finally realize his dream of proving collusion.
On Wednesday morning, NBC’s Today show and ABC’s Good Morning America recited identical liberal talking points as both broadcasts warned viewers that the U.S. was on the verge of looking like world’s worst “authoritarian regimes” if the Pentagon followed through on President Trump’s desire to hold a military parade in the nation’s capital.
A CNN panel was visibly disgusted Tuesday evening when news broke out of the Pentagon that President Trump had requested to have a military parade in Washington, DC similar to the Bastille Day parade he witnessed while in Paris, France. The panel was outraged as they tossed around denouncements and comparisons to the despots like those in North Korea and Russia.
No edition of CNN’s New Day would be complete without at least one instance of Trump-bashing. Pundits on Tuesday morning’s show referred to the President as "pathetic," “unpresidential,” “whiny," and "weak.”
Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos tried desperately to connect President Trump with a former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page as a Russian agent working with the Kremlin during an interview on the ABC morning show. However, no matter how hard the former Clinton staffer pressed Page, he didn’t gain any ground in proving his Democrat-agenda-driven talking point.
On Friday night during a discussion of the Nunes memo's release, CNN presidential historian Douglas Brinkley complained that -- unlike when Richard Nixon was President -- there now exist outlets like Fox News and Breitbart that act as an "echo chamber," theorizing that President Donald Trump could not survive "without the oxygen that's being pumped in to him on Fox."
Sunday afternoon's MSNBC Live displayed the latest example of how the job of a Republican commentator on MSNBC is to avoid disagreeing too much with the liberal news network's more far-left analysts as weekend host Alex Witt praised frequent guest Susan Del Percio after the Republican strategist declined to voice disagreement with fellow guest Howard Dean's attack on President Donald Trump's fitness for office.
The knives came out on ABC during their Sunday morning programming as they made President Trump and the GOP the target of their hyperbolic smear campaign following the release of the House Intelligence Committee memo detailing alleged misconduct by the FBI and Justice Department. And at one point during This Week, host George Stephanopoulos and Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz suggested that the “discord” and “mistrust” sowed by Republicans was ultimately helping Russian President Vladimir Putin.
President Trump isn’t just empowering dictators by criticizing the mainstream press, he’s also doing so by abandoning the promotion of human rights overseas. That’s the thrust of Friday’s front-page New York Times story by Cairo bureau chief Declan Walsh, “In Unquestioning U.S. Embrace, Autocrats Steamroll Opposition.” The text box: “A president’s silence on abuses by allies emboldens despots in Egypt and elsewhere.” But where was this concern for human rights when Republicans criticized ran this year, or Russia or Egypt previously?
With Tuesday’s State of the Union well-received by the public (and not the liberal media), it was time to move on and back to spreading fake news, attacking Christians, and hurling around tired insults. Luckily for the Resistance, Wednesday’s Hardball accomplished just that thanks to four cringe-worthy moments featuring host Chris Matthews and a team of liberal guests and journalists.
The 2016 election still isn’t over for the liberals in the media, who keep trying to find ways to prove that President Trump “obstructed justice” and should be impeached, just past a year into his presidency. Thursday on ABC’s Good Morning America, anchor and former President Clinton staffer George Stephanopoulos eagerly hoped they had finally found the evidence needed to oust Trump.
