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."
Has Brazil ever been considered a “safe” place to visit (at least in recent history)? According to ABC, Ryan Lochte’s exaggerated and possibly fabricated tale of robbery has been the sole incident that has ruined Brazil’s stellar reputation for safety. On Friday’s Good Morning America, ABC’s legal correspondent Dan Abrams lamented this idea, arguing that Brazil didn’t want to jail the American athletes but just wanted to get “their reputation back."
Appearing as a guest on Sunday's Relable Sources on CNN, former MSNBC general manager Dan Abrams advised against Donald Trump complaining about media bias against him, and claimed that the media are not "swooning" for Hillary Clinton the way they did for Barack Obama in 2008, as he asserted that the media "really don't like her" partly because "many in the media" are "to the left of Hillary Clinton" and "don't like her from the left."
Even the journalists at ABC News, who have their own problems with journalistic ethics, were disgusted by Rolling Stone having Sean Penn interview the drug lord known as El Chapo. Legal analyst Dan Abrams appeared on Good Morning America, Monday, to decry, “I think he [Penn] did something wrong here. In particular, I think Rolling Stone did something wrong here, journalistically.”
