When a liberal can’t even enjoy their vacation without getting into arguments with strangers over President Trump, it’s safe to say they may suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome. Joy Behar, co-host of The View, came back to the show Thursday after taking a trip to London this week, and touted how she blew up at a Trump supporter while overseas on a museum tour.
Television journalists these days sound so similar to Democrats on impeachment that it's nearly impossible to tell them apart. Weeks before the impeachment inquiry was even announced, talking heads were passing off Democratic talking points as objective information about the President's alleged wrongdoing.
In an interview spanning the last 30 minutes of Wednesday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, Megyn Kelly returned to television for the first time since NBC News cut ties with her and, appearing on her old home Fox News, Kelly lambasted the liberal media in the second half of the interview for their rampant, anti-Trump bias with a “hyperfocus on impeachment.” Carlson pivoted to “the state of journalism today” from NBC’s horrid state of affairs over their attempted squashing of Ronan Farrow’s 2017 bombshell on Harvey Weinstein and the Matt Lauer sexual misconduct scandal.
I wrote the book on the Obama administration’s “Culture of Corruption” 10 years ago, including a thick and sordid chapter on the Beltway swamp creatures of the Biden family. See-no-evil liberals scoffed at my catalogue of back-scratching, shady Delaware deals and Wall Street funny money: What nepotism? What ethical lapses? What corruption? Now, Hunter Biden himself, the youngest son of former Vice President and Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden, finally admitted this week what Daddy's pooh-poohing pals have long (publicly) denied: “I don't think that there's a lot of things that would have happened in my life if my last name wasn't Biden,” Hunter confessed on ABC's “Good Morning America” Tuesday.
On Wednesday, all three network morning shows presented an united front while praising 2020 Democratic candidates for “showing a united front against President Trump” during Tuesday night’s presidential debate. Reporters eagerly touted how all 12 contenders on stage supported impeachment and denounced Trump.
When John Bolton first became President Trump’s national security advisor back in March of last year, the liberal broadcast networks were sounding their alarms to warn viewers of his “hardline” and “controversial” positions. But on Tuesday, they clung to reports that Bolton described Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani as a “hand grenade” running something like a “drug deal” in Ukraine.
On Sunday evening and Monday morning, network broadcasts on NBC, ABC, and CBS celebrated Joe Biden “fighting back” against President Trump’s efforts to “weaponize” suspicious foreign business deals by the former Vice President’s son. Reporters also touted Hunter Biden’s pledge to quit the board of a Chinese-backed company as an attempt “to rob the President of a key talking point.”
Fresh off of touting the simplicity of the Democratic impeachment narrative against President Trump earlier that morning, NBC political director Chuck Todd took to Meet the Press and pushed former defense secretary, General James Mattis to attack the President. The retired General refused to acquiesce to Todd’s prodding and declared it was “the worst time, I think, for military people to step out like that.”
At the onset of the Democratic impeachment inquiry into President Trump, the liberal media emphasized that Congress could “read between the lines” to move forward with the process and find the conclusion they want.. On NBC’s Sunday Today, political director and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd praised how simple their narrative against Trump was this time around, but fretted the process to impeach the President could take too long.
Not surprisingly, the panel on Friday’s edition of Real Time weighed in on the impeachment inquiry that has sucked up all of the oxygen on Capitol Hill. Host Bill Maher suggested that Republicans’ behavior throughout the impeachment inquiry indicates that they “don’t believe in democracy anymore.” In addition, the panel took aim at Fox News; slamming the primetime hosts as “a**-lickers” and accusing the network of spinning out “a totally different version of reality.”
Thursday night, Washington Examiner’s Rob Crilly, Steven Nelson, and David Drucker reported that alleged CIA whistleblower at the center of the congressional inquiry seeking to impeach and remove President Donald Trump “had a ‘professional’ tie” to “Joe Biden, according to intelligence officers and former White House officials.” But on the Friday morning and evening flagship broadcast network newscasts, this update was ignored.
60 Minutes journalist John Dickerson on Friday blamed a lack of a “common set of facts” and social media that “allows different information” for “destroying institutions” and leading to a possible constitutional crisis in America. Dickerson appeared on CBS This Morning to contrast the impeachments of Nixon and Clinton with that of Donald Trump. Offering a nostalgic look back at the era of three networks (and the supremacy of his own CBS), the journalist reminisced:
