Viewers who watch The Late Show weeknights on CBS have heard host Stephen Colbert slam GOP President Donald Trump on a regular basis, but on Thursday, the liberal comedian turned his venom onto a different target: Melania Trump. Colbert used his monologue to criticize the First Lady for wearing a jacket with the phrase “I really don’t care, do U?” on her back during what the late-night host called “the middle of the worst moral scandal in recent memory -- so bad that her husband backed down for the first time in memory.”
First Lady Melania Trump caused a stir with the liberal media on Thursday when she wore a questionable jacket with “I really don’t care. Do you?” written on the back. She headed off to visit the children at the border who were separated from their parents. Of course, the gossip-prone media spend a considerable about of time trying to divine the secret meaning of the wardrobe choice and there were those who suggested she was saying that to the kids. CNN’s The Lead had both.
With the Justice Department's Inspector General rocking Washington, D.C. on Thursday with a damning report exposing the anti-Trump bias of senior FBI investigators, many in the liberal media were desperate to spin the findings to fit their narrative. During CNN's The Lead, host Jake Tapper took one of the greatest leaps and suggested that the consequence of biased FBI members was the election of President Trump.
Journalists have been unsurprisingly slow to notice the latest appalling comments from Bill Clinton in which he appears to insist that times have changed and you can no longer grope people. On Thursday’s PBS NewsHour, he talked to Judy Woodruff about Al Franken and the senator’s exit from the Senate.
CNN anchor Jake Tapper is demonstrating an affinity for Washington Post columnists bashing the Trump-Pence ticket. On May 10, Tapper helped promote George Will ripping Vice President Pence as “horrifying.” The screen said “CONSERVATIVE COLUMNIST: PENCE HAS CHOSEN TO BE ‘HORRIFYING.’”
On Wednesday, he wanted everyone to see Dana Milbank’s column insisting the president of the United States is a “madman.” This allowed CNN to put a graphic on screen for all its airport customers, reading “WASH POST COLUMNIST: TRUMP’S NO LIAR, HE’S A ‘MADMAN’.”
Network and cable channels couldn’t get enough of Michael Avenatti, granting Stormy Daniels’ personal attorney a whopping 162 interviews in the past 12 weeks (March 7 through May 30). But those outlets are now going to have to find a new pundit to embarrass Donald Trump with, as the judge presiding over the porn star’s case against former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen has ordered Avenatti to stop his “publicity tour.”
Obama’s director of national intelligence James Clapper went on a tour of Very Supportive Liberal Networks on Wednesday, starting with the PBS NewsHour. Judy Woodruff threw marshmallows like “The president, as you know, has been just constantly critical of the intelligence community since he’s been in office….What is the effect of these cumulative comments by the president?” And “Is the intelligence community destined to be undermined, misunderstood, not appreciated?”
Following the rest of the press, New York Times reporter Julie Hirschfeld Davis falsely portrayed the president as attacking all “undocumented immigrants” (in the paper’s politically correct terminology) as “animals” when he was clearly only talking about criminal gangs, including the murderous MS-13. The story came out of a White House meeting between President Trump and California mayors and sheriffs who oppose the state’s policy of “sanctuary cities” to protect illegal immigrants: “Trump Rants on Unauthorized Migrants: ‘These Aren’t People, These Are Animals.”
Rarely does a CNN panelist come out swinging in defense of a Trump administration nominee while going after a Democratic Party senator. But on Wednesday, CNN's Philip Mudd, who like most on-air personalities at the network has been harshly critical of the Trump administration and its officials, reacted strongly to harsh questions California Democrat Kamala Harris directed at Trump CIA nominee Gina Haspel.
CNN doesn’t usually air clippings of nationally syndicated columnists during the regular news day, but they just had to make an exception on Thursday for Washington Post columnist George Will’s nasty attack on Vice President Pence. In the 3 pm hour, subsitute anchor Brianna Keilar brought on Jake Tapper to savor the "merciless" and "brutal" Will column.
CNN anchor Jake Tapper appeared to plug his novel The Hellfire Club on ABC's The View on Wednesday. Mostly, the View wanted him to pronounce on the Trump tweet of the day on the "fake news" (and the MRC study showing 91 percent of the evening-news coverage of Trump was negative from January to April).
Jake Tapper appeared on the Ellen show on Tuesday and guess what the main topic of discussion was? Do I really need to spell it out? Unless you have been in a state of hibernation for the past few years then you definitely know they talked about the one who lives rent-free in the minds of liberals -- President Donald Trump. Tapper was obviously irked by Trump bringing up the subject of fake news.
