On ABC’s Good Morning America, co-host George Stephanopoulos framed today’s congressional testimony from ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen not as a case of an admitted liar potentially seeking to avoid the consequences of his crimes, but as an “epic,” “historic,” “Watergate”-style showdown, with Cohen playing the role of Nixon White House whistleblower John Dean.
All three networks worried about the “fate” of the Mueller investigation with news that Attorney General Jeff Sessions was fired yesterday. On Thursday’s morning news programs, anchors and reporters tore into his replacement as acting AG, Matthew Whitaker, for comments he has made in the past criticizing the Mueller investigation. They also touted Democrats like Chuck Schumer fearmongering, calling it a “constitutional crisis.”
Monday on Good Morning America, ABC’s chief legal analyst Dan Abrams took President Trump to task for daring to question the motives of special counsel Robert Mueller. In a tweetstorm over the weekend, the president claimed there was a possible conflict of interest for Mueller, since his entire team he hired for the Russia investigation was filled with liberal democrats. But ABC’s Abrams dismissed this obvious problem as a moot point because Mueller was a “lifelong Republican.”
With Wednesdsay's retirement news from Justice Anthony Kennedy, the liberal media was in a tailspin thinking of all the horrors President Trump would unleash on America with yet another Supreme Court nomination. On ABC’s World News Tonight, they were fearful for the future of Roe v. Wade and were hopefully speculating Chief Justice John Roberts would become the new swing vote for the sake of the court.
The knives came out on ABC during their Sunday morning programming as they made President Trump and the GOP the target of their hyperbolic smear campaign following the release of the House Intelligence Committee memo detailing alleged misconduct by the FBI and Justice Department. And at one point during This Week, host George Stephanopoulos and Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz suggested that the “discord” and “mistrust” sowed by Republicans was ultimately helping Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The 2016 election still isn’t over for the liberals in the media, who keep trying to find ways to prove that President Trump “obstructed justice” and should be impeached, just past a year into his presidency. Thursday on ABC’s Good Morning America, anchor and former President Clinton staffer George Stephanopoulos eagerly hoped they had finally found the evidence needed to oust Trump.
Despite liberal journalists like Michael Wolff gushing to CBS This Morning Monday that President Trump could be ousted out of office through the 25th Amendment, not everyone in the liberal media is buying it. ABC’s legal analyst and Mediaite founder Dan Abrams dismissed the latest strategy liberals were arguing as a legal way to get Trump out of office.
The Sunday morning shows were dominated by wild fantasies from the liberal media regarding what was to come next in the Russia investigation after Michael Flynn’s plea deal on Friday. But during an appearance on ABC’s This Week, former Attorney General for George W. Bush, Michael Mukasey, wrote off the press’s hopes as just “speculation” and “heavy breathing.”
On Friday, Bill Maher told his HBO Real Time audience he was worried that Donald Trump was "not losing" and was looking like he might get re-elected. He has incumbency, "gerrymandering," and a propaganda department: He has "basically Pravda in Fox News, in Breitbart, in Drudge."
On Monday’s Good Morning America, co-host George Stephanopoulos was all set to convict President Trump of a crime and move on to impeachment proceedings as he cited left-wing Harvard Law professor and Barack Obama mentor Laurence Tribe, who called for just that in a screed for Saturday’s Washington Post.
On Monday, all three network morning shows eagerly promoted the liberal group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) filing a lawsuit against President Trump and accusing him of “violating the Constitution.” At the top of NBC’s Today, co-host Matt Lauer proclaimed: “Defendant-in-chief. The new president being formally sued this morning over his hotel and television interests...”
ABC's George Stephanopoulos raised the prospect of the impeachment of President-Elect Trump on Thursday's Good Morning America, as the morning show spotlighted the multiple civil lawsuits against the billionaire. The former Clinton administration communications director underlined that "if he takes the risk of going to trial and he's convicted, that could be seen as an impeachable offense." ABC legal analyst Dan Abrams corrected Stephanopoulos's faulty take: "You can't impeach someone for stuff that they did before they became president."
