Kathleen Parker is going against the grain of her Washington Post colleagues on Sunday. While the Outlook section carries headlines like "Kavanaugh is lying, his upbringing explains why," and "Why senators 'believe' Ford, but side with Kavanaugh, Parker hailed Senator Lindsey Graham as "Sen. Jiminy Cricket," the conscience of the Senate.
In the Washington Post Tuesday night, Kathleen Parker, the “Republican” op-ed columnist for the paper attacked the millions of Americans who supported Trump at the election booth this past November as “mentally ill.” Comparing his supporters to mindless drones, Parker wonders how Trump still has support among a “third” of the population, despite his “fourth-grade, monosyllabic, syntax-challenged verbiage.” She answers her own question; they must be “officially insane.”
It appears that "conservative" Kathleen Parker of the Washington Post has joined with "conservative" David Brooks of the New York Times in fully embracing the loony political fantasies of the unhinged left. Both are now predicting the imminent removal of President Trump from office. Brooks predicted Trump would resign from office or be impeached within a year. Parker is very slightly more reasonable by extending that time frame to two years when a new Congress chock full of Democrats elected in 2018 would immediately begin impeachment proceedings against Trump.
The Washington Post op-ed page today has dueling columns on the two presumptive nominees being relentless liars. Kathleen Parker focused on Hillary Clinton, while Ruth Marcus targeted Trump. Parker is winning Wednesday on their website's "Most Read" meter.
Parker notes readers have sent her a 13-minute YouTube video titled "Hillary Clinton lying for 13 minutes." Let's hope they don't get put in handcuffs like the YouTube filmmaker blamed for the Benghazi terrorist attack.
On CNN's AC360 on Monday, syndicated columnist Kathleen Parker revealed her own ignorance of Christian teachings, as she targeted Ted Cruz for something "astonishing" he said: "I don't think there's any chance Ted Cruz can win a general — and here's why....He said...'It's time for the Body of Christ to rise up and support me.' I don't know anyone who takes their religion seriously who would think that Jesus should rise from the grave and resurrect himself to serve Ted Cruz. I know so many people who are offended by that comment."
Vice President Joe Biden will wait quite some time until he formally endorses Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, possibly even waiting until the last minute at the Democratic convention itself.
That was the prediction of veteran political journalist and Huffington Post Media Group editorial director Howard Fineman on the October 21 edition of MSNBC's Hardball. For her part, moderately conservative Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker seems to agree.
On Sunday’s Meet the Press, Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker did her best to give Hillary Clinton the “benefit of the doubt” after she has flipped her position on a number of policy issues, most recently her sudden opposition to TPP. Parker acknowledged that Clinton would never admit to changing her positions for “political expedience” in order to satisfy Bernie Sanders' supporters, but she stressed that you “can give her the benefit of the doubt too.”
On Sunday's MediaBuzz on Fox News, former CNN correspondent Lola Ogunnaike slammed the reaction of many conservatives to the sexual abuse scandal surrounding the Duggar family. Host Howard Kurtz wondered if "some conservative commentators going easy on the family, because it's somebody who is seen as on their side." Ogunnaike replied, "Absolutely. I think that if this family was a group of atheists, they would have thrown the book at them. They would have raked them over the coals – drawn and quartered the entire family in the middle of Times Square."
Appearing on Fox News’ MediaBuzz on Sunday, Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker demonstrated a complete 180 degree change of heart surrounding Senator Ted Cruz’ presidential prospects. At first, Parker argued that “he’s obviously not going to win the presidency” before insisting that when it comes to Cruz “the Washington media are really out of touch with real America.”
Yet again Hardball host Chris Matthews insisted that 47 Republican senators the other day violated federal law by penning an open letter to the government of Iran regarding ongoing nuclear talks between that regime and the Obama administration. In a March 11 segment on the matter, Matthews played video of Secretary of State John Kerry criticizing Republicans for sending the open letter.
Informing Hardball viewers of something host Chris Matthews would never tell them, moderately-conservative columnist Kathleen Parker on Monday gave some much-needed context to why Speaker John Boehner did not extensively consult with the White House prior to inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address the Congress.
