It was quite the scene on Monday’s New Day as the panel of CNN analysts and hosts continued the liberal media drumbeat to try and (at least culturally) criminalize and ostracize conservative speech as the root of evil, demanding Fox News be punished and the President be condemned for his “racist dog whistles” against the caravan. All told, they deemed “right-wing terrorism” as responsible for the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting.
The liberal media were irate Wednesday night after President Trump called for civility, unity, and for the media to turn down their own heated rhetoric. A lot of CNN’s prime time line up after that point involved them berating the President for his own rhetoric and tone deafly denying they needed to take any such action. And during the first hour of CNN Tonight, current CNN analyst and former NBC host David Gregory laughably declared that the media was “not responsible for creating a tone”, the President was.
Wednesday has been a difficult day for the country with explosive, suspicious devices being sent to CNN, former Attorney General Eric Holder, Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA), plus former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. Put simply, it’s inexcusable and unacceptable for that to happen to anyone in this country. Reacting to President Trump’s comments on the bombs, CNN Newsroom’s panel of analysts, journalists, and pundits promptly lashed out at Trump, insinuating his guilt and deeming his remarks insufficient.
During Wednesday’s edition of CNN’s New Day, co-hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman and their panel complained about President Trump’s description of the federal government’s handling of Hurricane Maria as a “success.” Camerota described that assertion as “hurtful,” while Berman described it as “not true.” CNN Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin, on the other hand, suggested President Trump had a much more sinister motive for his response to the hurricane that ravaged the island territory of Puerto Rico last year.
During the ongoing fallout over Omarosa Manigault Newman’s attention-seeking book tour, Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson slammed the President for calling the author a “dog” in a tweet and went so far as to accuse Trump of using “KKK language” in his attacks. Tuesday afternoon on CNN, Dyson accused Trump of “evoking an entire history of assault against black people with dehumanizing language” while responding to the claims made by the author of Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.
On Friday's New Day show, as Texas Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro appeared as a guest, substitute co-host David Gregory gave him a forum to complain that the Trump administration has lost track of illegal immigrant parents who were deported from the country without noting that many parents chose not to take their children with them when they were deported, while a portion also had criminal records.
On Tuesday’s edition of New Day, co-hosts Alisyn Camerota and David Gregory demonstrated the biased nature of CNN by devoting an entire segment to the promotion of an anti-Trump book that hasn’t even come out yet. The book, titled Fear, is set to come out in early September and is written by The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward, of Watergate fame.
Nearly 48 hours after President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the outbreak of Trump Derangement Syndrome among the media continued. CNN’s New Day began its program on Wednesday focusing on the President’s walk-back of his claim that he didn’t see any reason why Russia would be behind the meddling in the 2016 Presidential Election. During a meeting with lawmakers at the White House, the President said that he had meant to use the word “wouldn’t” instead of “would.”
On Tuesday's New Day, CNN political analyst David Gregory again showed himself to be one of the very few journalists in the liberal media who will actually make an effort to inform viewers of Palestinian intransigence and hostility toward the existence of a Jewish state in the Middle East. As he substitute hosted the show and interviewed former PLO official Diana Buttu about the violent protests in Gaza, Gregory repeatedly brought up Hamas's desire to take over Israel rather than co-exist.
During Friday’s edition of Morning Joe on MSNBC, frequent panelist Donnie Deutsch expressed his displeasure with Stormy Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti appearing so often on cable news shows. “He feels like he’s ‘jumping the shark’ a little bit,” Deutsch stated. “You almost get the feeling he’s already auditioning” for CNN President Jeff Zucker and MSNBC boss Phil Griffin to set up “his next TV spot.”
From the moment President Trump ended his remarks announcing the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran Deal, it was DEFCON-1 at CNN with panelist after panelist losing their minds over the President’s decision. One after another, they almost universally claimed that leaving the deal has left America less safe, jeopardized progress with North Korea, handed Iran a “propaganda victory,” and destroyed “international unity.”
During Monday's edition of CNN's New Day, co-host Chris Cuomo painted a picture of "obvious chaos" in the White House, in addition to accusing "Captain Benghazi" Trey Gowdy of not showing enough urgency when it comes to investigating alleged wrongdoing by Environmental Protection Agency Secretary Scott Pruitt.
