A Senate Armed Services Committee hearing took an unexpected turn Wednesday when Arizona Senator Martha McSally announced that she was raped by a senior officer during her time in the Air Force. Not surprisingly, two liberal CNN guests on Wednesday’s The Lead used McSally’s testimony as an excuse to attack President Trump and even McSally herself.
Further illustrating how either CNN and Trump have broken her in recent years or that she was a fraud at Fox News, political analyst Kirsten Powers became stricken with an embarrassing case of whataboutism during Thursday’s The Lead. In a span of just over seven minutes, Powers defended Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in light of her numerous anti-Semitic comments, blasting President Trump and suggesting that criticism of Omar has been Islamophobic and sexist.
Washington Post nonfiction book critic Carlos Lozada underlined how well he matches his paper's red-hot hatred of the current president in his list of the "most memorable books I read in 2018." Cable-news personalities made the list, both good (CNN's Amanda Carpenter) and bad (Fox host Jeanine Pirro).
During Tuesday’s The Lead, the CNN panel complained that President Trump did not act like a “Consoler-in-Chief” on the seventeenth anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, describing his behavior as “uber inappropriate” and suggested he may be “missing a human screw.”
During Wednesday’s edition of The Lead, the panel found itself in a little bit of shock after learning that President Trump had revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan, who has previously called President Trump treasonous in his new capacity as an NBC News analyst.
A panel of guests on Monday's CNN Tonight With Don Lemon took turns trying to deflect from the public backlash against former President Bill Clinton after he refused to take responsibility for the Monica Lewinsky scandal during a contentious interview with NBC reporter Craig Melvin on the Today show that morning. Anchor Don Lemon and his pundits instead tried to turn the focus against President Trump.
Today’s journalists routinely assert that it is “extreme,” “dangerous,” and possibly even criminal for the White House – or anyone else, for that matter – to criticize an investigation into the President. But twenty years ago, Independent Counsel Ken Starr was savaged by the same liberal media during his investigation of then-President Bill Clinton. At that time, Starr was harangued as a “partisan” and “inept prosecutor,” and a “peeping Tom.”
ABC's The View replaced Meghan McCain on Monday with CNN commentator Amanda Carpenter, who worked on Ted Cruz's presidential campaign in the last cycle. But Carpenter lined right up with Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Whoopi Goldberg in defending Stormy Daniels for doing a comedy skit with Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live. She even proclaimed Daniels is taking on Trump better than the Democrats. "I hand it to her, and I hand it to Michael Avenatti! "
As the results were starting to come in from Tuesday's closely watched Alabama Senate election Tuesday, a CNN discussion during Anderson Cooper 360 got heated when Republican commentator Amanda Carpenter pointed out how Democratic candidate Doug Jones was in jeopardy because of his position on abortion.
Showing off the liberal media’s willful blindness concerning the Clintons, Tuesday’s CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin featured CNN political commentator and former Ted Cruz staffer Amanda Carpenter being shouted down in a Harvey Weinstein segment for invoking the sexual misdeeds by Bill Clinton and enabling by Hillary Clinton.
As the left mobilizes mobs to tear down confederate statues (and peace monuments) from city-to-city, it was only a matter of time before they would be going after our Founding Fathers. On CNN Thursday morning, liberal analyst Angela Rye argued that our nation’s first president was as detestable as Robert E. Lee because he was a slave owner. “To me, I don't care if it's a George Washington statue or Thomas Jefferson, they all need to come down,” she said before ranting about America’s “very violent past.”
Sometimes, Cosmo surprises us... and not in the "I Walked in on a Foursome" and 15 Other OMG Confessions" kind of way. While the liberal, feminist magazine usually pushes progressive content, it occasionally runs trenchant pieces by conservative authors. At least one editor there must realize that conservative and liberal women can agree on several important tenets of feminism. For example, women should not be targeted or demeaned simply for their sex.
