On Morning Joe, Mike Barnicle dismisses the murder fantasy Beto O'Rourke wrote as a teenager in which he described enjoying killing two children with his car. "He was 16!! I mean, come on!!", said Barnicle. But during Brett Kavanaugh's SCOTUS confirmation hearings, Barnicle passionately argued that Kavanaugh's accusers had to be believed.
If Hollywood’s #MeToo maxim “believe all victims” is to be held as some universal moral standard, then Johnny Depp’s side of the story must be given some serious credence as well. The actor has endured two years of media attacks over allegations of domestic abuse from ex-wife Amber Heard, however new evidence has surfaced that might indicate that Depp has been the abuse victim all along.
Ever since ESPN awarded Bruce for being confused enough to become Caitlyn, radical LGBTQ members and their media friends have moved to squash criticism that praising gender reassignment is insane. Of course, just like the gay agenda before it, trans activists started with demands that they not have to endure “hate,” but it’s quickly become a demand that society celebrates their delusion.
There’s nothing funnier than comparing a Supreme Court Justice to an alleged serial rapist, right? Well that’s what Late Show host Stephen Colbert thought, comparing the explosive interview rapper R. Kelly gave to CBS’s Gayle King Wednesday morning to conservative Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate hearing last Fall.
On this morning's New Day, co-host John Berman fretted that President Trump's signing of a check on days he was also fulfilling his presidential duties constituted a "jarring juxtaposition." Alisyn Camerota echoed Berman's concern over the "juxtaposition." That this was a ginned-up nothingburger is reflected in Berman's supposed concern that Trump signed a check on February 14th, 2017, "just after Michael Flynn was pushed out of the White House." But Flynn resigned on February 13th, so that awful juxtaposition that has Berman so verklempt didn't even happen on the same day. The faux outrage reached its absurd apotheosis when Camerota cited Trump for signing a check on the same day . . . that he pardoned a Thanksgiving turkey.
Morning Joe had an F-word for President Trump today. No, not that F-word. Another one: "felony." Nine times in the show's opening segment, Joe Scarborough, Nick Confessore and Michael Steele accused President Trump of committing a "felony" in connection with alleged hush money payments.
In what seemed like an echo of how they handled the shady sexual misconduct claims against Justice Brett Kavanaugh by Julie Swetnick, Monday’s NBC Nightly News pushed a claim that then-candidate Donald Trump kissed a campaign staffer without consent. They were the only broadcast network to give the claim airtime that evening. They ran with the claim despite admitting to major contradictions and odd behavior from the accuser.
Court documents show that Bill Clinton took at least 26 trips on convicted sex-offender Jeffrey Epstein's notorious "Lolita Express" party plane. There's no indication that Donald Trump ever did. But in a segment on Epstein on her MSNBC show today, Joy Reid managed to refer to President Trump six times, accompanied by extended photo displays of Trump in Epstein's company. Number of times Reid mentioned Lolita Express frequent flyer Clinton? A New York bagel, of course.
The once august New Yorker used to be the home of such skilled writers as Dorothy Parker, S.J. Perelman, James Thurber, and E.B. White who were renowned for their sophisticated humor. Nowadays? Well, check out how they congratulate the HuffPost for "creating" a headline that was already obvious to many in this February 8 article by Erich Lach, 'The Story Behind the Instant Classic “Bezos Exposes Pecker” Headline.'
If you think you noticed a difference in the liberal media’s ferocity, or lack thereof, in pursuing the two sexual assault allegations against Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justice Fairfax (D) and Justice Brett Kavanaugh, you’re not wrong. As The Federalist senior editor Mollie Hemingway called out during an appearance on Fox News Channel’s MediaBuzz on Sunday, The Washington Post sat on the allegations against Fairfax for months while they pounced on those against Kavanaugh.
Over the weekend, the chaos gripping Virginia politics evolved yet again with a second sexual assault allegation against Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax. With Virginia’s top three officeholders (all of whom were Democrats) facing calls for their resignations, NBC moderator Chuck Todd took to Sunday Today to caution against running Fairfax out of office before an investigation could be conducted. Yet, with Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Todd was telling him to pack it up before the hearing.
What a difference a week makes! Last Sunday on AM Joy, MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson accused Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam of "arrogance" for refusing to resign. Railed Johnson: "he caused this problem on his own, and the best way to save his party would be for him to leave." But now that scandals have engulfed Virginia's Dem lieutenant governor and attorney general, Johnson has changed his tune. He is counseling the Dems not to resign, and to "back off" any resignation talk, because the result could be to elevate a Republican to the governorship.
