Breaking in just after noon Eastern on Tuesday for Inside Politics, panelists expressed support for liberal Senators and protesters repeatedly disrupting and trying to delay the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing, declaring they “had no choice” and “definitely” have a point about Kavanaugh not being transparent with Americans concerning his time in the Bush White House.
During Sunday’s edition CNN’s Inside Politics, host John King was frustrated with President Trump’s supporters, both in the media and elsewhere, for what he suggested was their double standard on lying politicians. But in doing so, he exposed CNN’s own shifting standards for what they would and wouldn’t hold Democratic leaders accountable for.
If there’s one thing the media doesn’t seem to specialize in, it’s originality. They all read from the same script. On five different programs broadcast Monday and Tuesday on three different networks, the media went off the rails; repeatedly calling President Trump a dictator and in some cases comparing him to Turkish Dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan. At least they didn’t compare him to Hitler.
David Rutz at the Washington Free Beacon pointed out that CNN is a little shocked and alarmed that supposedly smart people don't know their Russiagate trivia. Don't they have CNN on their TV for six Russia-packed hours at a time? America lacks "focus" on CNN's obsessions. On Friday afternoon's Inside Politics, host John King tried to gently mock the intelligence of Jeopardy contestants who couldn't identify Michael Flynn in a plea-deal question.
After rustling the feathers of foreign elitists at the G7 summit in Canada over the weekend, President Trump hopped on Air Force One and shot over to Singapore for Monday’s historic meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un. Of course, the liberal media was foaming at the mouth over Trump’s ability to push back against allies and the thought of something getting done with North Korea. The host of CNN’s Inside Politics, John King eagerly joined that bandwagon on Sunday and even said Trump was making Putin happy.
The rolling disaster that is talk show host Samantha Bee’s hateful attack on Ivanka Trump continued on Thursday as CNN journalists condemned the TBS talk show host. Speaking of Bee’s disgusting smear of Ivanka Trump as “cunt,” S.E. Cupp declared: “What she said wasn't just unacceptable. Welcome to the misogyny club. I mean, she's joined by Keith Olbermann, one of the world’s most prolific misogynists.”
On Sunday morning, television news personalities begrudgingly showed a small degree of satisfaction with President Trump’s recent military action in Syria. Evidently disturbed by their support for anything Trump, cable and network media hosts collectively lifted the goalposts in unison and hurriedly ran them downfield.
During Wednesday’s edition of Inside Politics, host John King mocked President Trump for a series of spelling errors in two early morning tweets and suggested that “the President of the United States needs supervision.”
During an appearance on CNN’s Inside Politics, Bloomberg’s National Political Reporter Sahil Kapur shared his theory as to why President Trump has not come out with a strong statement against domestic violence. According to Kapur’s theory, President Trump is signaling to a “certain type of Trump voter who grew up in the ‘50s, who grew up in the ‘60s, has a very different conception of gender roles.” Hillary Clinton might consider this particular Trump voter part of the “basket of deplorables.”
CNN set a possible new low for themselves Sunday morning when their Inside Politics panel of liberal journalists obnoxiously complained that Vice President Mike Pence didn’t shake the hand of Kim Yo-jong, Kim Jong-un’s sister and the head of the Propaganda and Agitation Department. “South Korea views this as a major milestone and a chance, a chance to see if an Olympics detente can bring a broader diplomatic opening, but the Vice President sees it as propaganda period,” bemoaned host, John King.
Towards the end of Thursday morning’s edition of CNN’s Inside Politics, the panel criticized President Trump's routine of watching Fox News in the morning and argued that he lives in a "parallel universe." The panel had discussed the fact that President Trump used the phrase “bombshell” to describe the latest batch of text messages between anti-Trump FBI employees Peter Stzrok and Lisa Page, after the morning news program Fox & Friends used the same term.
During a panel discussion on Inside Politics Tuesday, host John King criticized the President for referring to the Democrats as “treasonous” and “un-American” for not applauding during his State of the Union speech. King seemed to forget that less than a year ago, he himself carelessly tossed around the word “treasonous” when discussing a member of the Trump administration.
