State of the Union
Even before President Trump gave his first State of the Union, the Left was complaining that he was going to look “presidential.” They still can’t accept that he is president, and gets to give presidential speeches. But Trump took that opportunity and fully exploited it. The Democrats sitting in the chamber weren’t conceding a thing. Leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer scowled throughout.
On Wednesday's Cuomo Prime Time on CNN, host Chris Cuomo ended the show with a commentary in which he complained that "there's a lot of bad info about immigration out there," but then he injected his own misinformation by wrongly claiming that "undocumented folks commit less crime than the rest of us." And the the next morning on New Day, he finally acknowledged the child abuse accusations against a Polish-born doctor that CNN has been preoccupied with who is in danger of deportation.
Following up his statement blasting the liberal media’s reaction to the State of the Union, MRC President Brent Bozell told the Fox Business Network’s Liz MacDonald on Thursday night that President Trump “hit three home runs” talking about America in the mold of Ronald Reagan while Democrats and the media condemned it because “they hate” and “despise him.”
Last night on FNC’s The Ingraham Angle, host Laura Ingraham interviewed parents of a teenage girl who was killed by the gang MS-13 in 2016, and who were honored by President Trump at the State of the Union, January 30. The radio and television host asked the couple about their reaction to Democrats not standing for their daughter during the speech, and MSNBC’s Joy Reid’s dismissive response to Trump honoring the couple and their slain daughter.
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.
After listening to Univision anchors Jorge Ramos and Ilia Calderón parrot DNC and leftist activist talking points distributed to the liberal media to disparage President Trump’s State of the Union speech, one can’t help but wonder what’s behind their incredible determination to continuing playing dumb to their audience. Do they really believe all their viewers live in La-La Land?
ABC News continued their anti-Trump meltdown over the President's State of the Union speech into Wednesday evening as they seemed to praise Democrats who were seen childishly pouting during the address. And after the liberal media freaked out over Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) shouting “you lie” at President Obama during the 2009 joint session of Congress, ABC seemed impressed with Democrats who were protesting the President and loudly booed him.
On Tuesday night, during a discussion after President Donald Trump's State of the Union speech, liberal CNN contributor Van Jones insisted that illegal immigrants are less likely to commit crimes than the general population as right-leaning CNN contributor Rick Santorum cited a recent study by John Lott finding that illegal immigrants in Arizona commit crimes at twice the rate of the general population.
In a breathtaking, unhinged display apparently triggered by President Donald Trump's well-received State of the Union address, Counterpunch Editor Jeffrey St. Clair outrageously mocked invited guest, double amputee, and North Korean defector Ji Seong-ho as "Korea's version of Tiny Tim who brought his own crutches."
Late Tuesday, the President’s State of the Union address and Democratic response ended just shy of 11:00 p.m. Eastern, but MSNBC kept it going live until 2:00 a.m. Eastern on Wednesday. While it’s doubtful you stayed up to watch, you missed some mind-numbingly stupid quotes. Whether it’s suggesting Trump has committed treason or ghoulishly laughing about people fearing MS-13 gang violence, Chris Matthews, Joy Reid, and Ron Reagan succeeded in stooping to the lowest of lows.
For all of the talk about collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, there seemed to be a bit of collusion on Wednesday between the cable news channels as they dissected the President’s State of the Union speech.
As President Trump stepped up to podium to deliver his State of the Union address Tuesday night, the NBC News team wanted viewers to focus on one thing as they watched the speech – that Trump was “under criminal investigation” and Special Counsel Robert Mueller “hovers over the chamber.”
