In the aftermath of a horrific shooting at a local newspaper office in Annapolis, Maryland Thursday afternoon, whom did the media immediately blame? Not the shooter, of course, but President Trump. From cable news to social media, journalists and media outlets irresponsibly sent out provocative tweets directly or indirectly blaming the president for supposedly inspiring the deadly shooting, even as reports revealed the shooter had a personal dispute with the paper, in 2012.
On Monday’s edition of New Day, co-hosts John Berman and Erica Hill conducted a panel discussing the current illegal immigration crisis. The panel quickly moved from an actual discussion on immigration to a ludicrous grandstanding session where contributors took their turn to call President Trump racist and score publicity points.
Double standards were on wide display Saturday after a Lexington, Virginia restaurant owner's Friday evening refusal to serve White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The Sanders incident has garnered a great deal of press attention, apparently because the she reacted to the incident on Twitter.
On Thursday, CNN analyst and Playboy reporter, Brian Karem had an absolute meltdown during the White House press briefing where he screamed at Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about the administration’s immigration policies. The rage-fueled outburst was lauded by some and condemned by many, but during an appearance on CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday, host Brian Stelter pushed back and asked Karem if he wanted to apologize. Of course, the Karem refused and dug in his heels.
During MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports on Friday, Mitchell and her liberal guests all agreed that Playboy’s Brian Karem was completely “justified” in attempting to shout down and scold White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during Thursday’s chaotic press briefing. The panel of media pundits even lamented that there weren’t more reporters as unhinged as Karem in the White House press corps.
These people can be so predictable. Hours after his angry outburst during Thursday’s White House Press Briefing, Playboy writer, Sentinel Newspapers editor, and CNN political analyst Brian Karem was given a hero’s welcome on Erin Burnett OutFront to expand on his squabble with Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders over the detention of illegal immigrant children.
CNN journalists suffered a full-on meltdown during Thursday’s White House press briefing, screaming, waving their hands and offering repeated outbursts of emotion. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee dismissed CNN analyst Brian Karem and zinged journalist Jim Acosta, telling him: “I know it's hard for you to understand even short sentences.”
Former President Bill Clinton’s sex scandal with Monica Lewinsky was back in the news on Monday after he lashed out during an interview with NBC News’ Craig Melvin to promote the thriller novel he co-authored with James Patterson. And surprisingly, some members of the liberal media were critical of his attitude towards both Lewinski and Melvin, as was the case during CNN Tonight where host Don Lemon and his panel took the Democrat to task.
Trump Derangement Syndrome can really take a toll on people. Unfortunately, that was evident on Monday’s CNN Tonight as CNN political analysts and White House Briefing Room rabble-rousers Brian Karem and April Ryan hijacked a segment meant to discuss First Lady Melania Trump’s surgery to whine about the President’s tweeting habits and his refusal to hold press conferences.
When one thinks of liberal reporters who relish showing off at White House press briefings, three individuals who come to mind are CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta and CNN political analysts Brian Karem and April Ryan. All three showed up at Monday’s installment to question White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about possible racist overtones in a Trump tweet that used the word “breeding” in regards to California’s sanctuary cities.
During Monday's edition of New Day, two guests took turns ripping the Trump Administration. Legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin referred to the Trump Administration's idea to privatize the VA as "silliness" while Brian Karem referred to the President as "unhinged" and "unpresidential." Guest co-host John Avlon briefly joined the anti-Trump crusade, describing the idea of the President taking action based on "things he sees on TV" as "objectively troubling."
During Monday's edition of New Day, a discussion ensued about President Trump's most recent "tweet storm" where he addressed the hot button issue of DACA. CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins said that the President's meetings with Fox News hosts over the weekend plus "hard-liner" Ann Coulter's "recent media tour calling Trump a disappointment" as the rationales for the tweet storm.
