We all know the press loves to congratulate itself on “holding Trump accountable,” with such pompous slogans as “Facts First” as “Democracy Dies in Darkness.” However sometimes that braggadocious attitude stoops so low it’s beyond parody. Take for example Wednesday’s Good Morning America, where the anchors eagerly gushed that two of their hosts made People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” annual list.
Monday evening on the final hour of CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon psychoanalyzed President Trump’s flailing answer to a reporter earlier that day about past presidents record of contacting fallen soldiers’ families. Lemon claimed Trump was “obsessed” with Obama because he could never be as “classy” “smart” or “kind” as our former president, while guest analysts Douglas Brinkley and Charles Blow repeatedly claimed Trump was racist and that was why he was “obsessed” with Obama.
The elite have their versions of ambulance chasers. In the wake of a national tragedy, the insensitive calls from wealthy celebrities and journalists to join the bandwagon of liberal political activism showcases their complete lack of empathy.
Late in Tuesday’s AC360, former Republican National Committee (RNC) official and CNN political commentator Mike Shields unloaded on his fellow panelists and the news media at large for failing to connect with Americans outside the Washington D.C. area.
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's CNN Tonight, liberal New York Times columnist and CNN commentator Charles Blow managed to make a case that there is a liberal bias in the dominant media even while concluding that the liberal bias claim is "kind of false" as he asserted that there is actually an "urban media bias" instead. Host Don Lemon and CNN media reporter Brian Stelter voiced agreement with Blow's assessment.
Following President Trump’s unusual comments about President Andrew Jackson being able to stop the Civil War, the media was all abuzz trying to figure out what he meant by it. During CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 Monday night, commenter Jeffrey Lord explained that Trump might have been attracted to Jackson’s economic populism, but Lord condemned Jackson’s racism. He also reminded viewers that it was Democrats who backed slavery and racism. That didn’t sit well with New York Times columnist Charles Blow, who proceeded to rail against Republicans.
New York Times columnist Charles Blow went on another Twitter rant Monday, attacking the GOP again for being “on the wrong side of history.” This time, it was over the Republicans fight to repeal Obamacare. Blow actually claimed that Republicans were so “clouded by partisan hatred” in their hatred of Obama, that “they’d rather die of disease” than “be kept alive” by a plan bearing his name.
The New York Times’s liberal columnist Charles Blow railed against the very idea of “reaching out to Donald Trump voters,” dismissing it as impossible considering how “backward-thinking” and bigoted his voters are. In a February 23 screed entitled “The Death of Compassion,” Blow compared, “Just like Donald Trump’s path to victory, Reagan’s was strewn with racial hostilities and prejudicial lies.”
Remove him from office or just call him a racist? That was the dilemma faced by two New York Times columnists this weekend. First, the prickly Charles Blow ventured into the Midwest to rant against Donald Trump at the Cleveland Public Library, while his colleague Nicholas Kristof put odds on Trump's removal.
As New York Times columnist and CNN political commentator Charles Blow appeared on Thursday's CNN Tonight, the liberal analyst had another of his infamous blow-up episodes, this time targeting CNN commentator Kayleigh McEnany, after the right-leaning analyst dared to touch his arm in a friendly manner before criticizing his negative attacks on President Donald Trump. Blow griped: "The fact that you touched me before you said that is wrong. Don't do that. Don't do that. ... No, no, no, ma'am, no, ma'am, don't do that. Don't touch me and then launch into your 'sinister motivations' diatribe. That's not going to happen tonight, ma'am." Toward the end of the heated exchange, after McEnany lamented, "You said I'm not even allowed to touch you," Blow exclaimed, "No, you're not!" over and over again for a total of eight times.
Poor liberals! The New York Times’ resident drama queen columnist Charles Blow understands your pain. Blow’s melodramatic op-ed in Monday’s paper pathetically tries to soothe the left’s hurt feelings over the election by praising their moral superiority over Trump voters. After stroking egos, Blow calls for the left to move from “being alarmed” to “actively opposing” Trump’s agenda.
Sparks flew during CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront Thursday evening, as New York Times columnist, and radical leftist, Charles Blow announced how he really feels about supporters of the president-elect. “The flaw in that is that you assume that I care what his supporters think,” blow exclaimed to conservative radio host Ben Ferguson. Blow’s dismissal came after he denounced Donald Trump, saying everything he says “reeks of fraudulence.”
