State of the Union
On Tuesday afternoon, CNN host Brianna Keilar picked up on the heckler who shouted at President Donald Trump during the State of the Union Address, and gave him a forum to complain about how the President has handled the gun control issue. Setting up her interview with Fred Guttenberg -- a gun control activist who lost his daughter in the Parkland school shooting -- Keilar showed a clip of him shouting and being escorted away after President Trump talked about protecting the Second Amendment:
In a late Thursday, early Friday edition of Cuomo Prime Time, liberal CNN contributors Angela Rye and April Ryan both spewed bile toward conservatives as Rye declared that President Donald Trump's judicial nominees "may be pro-life, but they want to kill off everyone else," and Ryan condemned Rush Limbaugh as a "bigot" and "racist" because he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Under President Trump, the State of the Union address has become the Super Bowl for the left-leaning “fact checkers.” It doesn’t matter if Republicans and independents enjoyed it immensely. Like Nancy Pelosi, these journalists want to rip his speech to pieces because it somehow overflows with “untruths.” But these supposedly “independent” guardians are failures at fact-checking the Democratic Party response.
On Thursday morning, in the aftermath of conservative icon Rush Limbaugh being awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, CNN's New Day show ran a piece in which correspondent Sara Sidner accused him of a history of engaging in "hateful rhetoric" and of making "racist comments" directed at former President Barack Obama.
Reporters at ABC and CBS went offensive over the sad news that renowned conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh is fighting lung cancer. An ABC News writer posted an extraordinarily hostile article after Limbaugh was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom: "....President Donald Trump's decision to award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh -- a polarizing figure who has insisted it was unfair to blame white Americans for slavery, blamed gay marriage for the decline of Christianity, and attempted to slut-shame a woman seeking coverage for contraception -- stood out." CBS was no better: "Mr. Trump's decision drew fierce blowback from critics who pointed to Limbaugh's decades of bigoted rhetoric and spreading conspiracy theories and misinformation on his show...."
New York Times reporter Jacey Fortin reported on renowned conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh’s sad revelation that he has advanced lung cancer. But not even that cruel diagnosis stopped Fortin from being classless toward a conservative figure: "Mr. Limbaugh, who has said he started smoking cigarettes as a teenager but quit by the early 1980s, and who has often been photographed smoking a cigar, questioned the link between smoking and cancer in 2015."
Forget the liberal media’s scrambling to throw cold water on President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address. CNBC host of Mad Money Jim Cramer gave high praise for Trump’s economy, a major focus of the president’s speech Tuesday.
When President Trump talked about one of the earliest premature babies ever to survive and then tied it in with late-term abortion at Tuesday's State of the Union, pro-abortion activists were aghast. There was little Ellie Schneider, born at 21 weeks and 6 days, when other unborn babies are brutally butchered in the womb, and our president had the guts to say it.
John Harwood and CNN Newsroom co-host Jim Sciutto took it upon themselves on Wednesday to fact check President Trump's State of the Union Address, but instead of simply fact-checks, the two qualified Trump's true statements with their own opinions and multiple "yeah, but" verdicts.
On the morning after President Donald Trump delivered his 2020 State of the Union address, there was further evidence of how heavily skewed toward the left that CNN has become as New Day did not feature a single pro-Trump guest to react to the speech. But the four-hour special edition of the flagship morning show did make time for three Democratic members of Congress and one liberal Republican CNN contributor to react negatively to the President's words.
Viewers of Telemundo’s morning talk show Un Nuevo Día, woke up to a report that, instead of actually reporting the content of President Trump's State of the Union Address, focused on the very nasty words of first-term congresswoman Veronica Escobar, from Texas, who was assigned to deliver the Democrat rebuttal in Spanish.
After praising Nancy Pelosi’s antics at last night’s State of the Union address, The View hosts reserved their rage for President Trump awarding Rush Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom Award. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg claimed the influential talk radio host had done nothing to deserve it, while Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin attacked Limbaugh as a racist bigot.
