Dating back to Abigail Adams in the late 1700s (and early 1800s), America’s First Ladies have a long history of getting involved in their husbands’ administrations and touching on everything from policy to politics. But according to today’s liberal media, everything the Trump administration did was somehow unprecedented. Take Tuesday, for instance: First Lady Melania Trump got involved in the West Wing when she publicly called for the firing of Deputy National Security Advisor Mira Ricardel.
On Tuesday, NBC’s Today show was giddy with excitement over Democratic Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema winning the extremely close Senate race in Arizona against Republican Congresswoman Martha McSally. The word “wow” was tossed out three times during a two-minute report on the straggling midterm election result, along with hopes that the usually red state was turning “purple.”
Only hours after the midterm elections, on Wednesday morning, NBC’s Today show was already looking to the 2020 presidential campaign, eager to discuss which Democrats were “getting serious about taking on President Trump.” In addition to some of the usual names, the report also touted Democrats who went down to defeat on Tuesday as “future stars” of the party.
With roughly 24 hours until polls closed for the midterm elections, the liberal broadcast networks were out in force Monday evening as they pleaded with viewers to vote for Democratic candidates. From touting Democratic Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill as a moderate to blasting Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp for accusing Democrats of hacking to fantasizing about all the investigations of President Trump the Democrats would start, the liberal networks were all hands on deck.
Legendary TV personality Oprah Winfrey stumped for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams in Georgia on Thursday and the liberal media couldn’t get enough of it. During their evening news programs, the major broadcast networks celebrated her efforts as they gushed about her going door-to-door and surprising voters.
The 2018 midterms were less than a week away and the liberal media were already looking forward to the 2020 Presidential election and dreaming about the candidates they would back against President Trump. During Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News, they were fantasizing about Oprah Winfrey going toe-to-toe Trump and touting her efforts to get Democrats elected in 2018.
While the liberal media have been obsessed with blaming Donald Trump’s rhetoric for provoking the man who sent letter bombs to Democrats and CNN last week, they barely mentioned that the man who shot at Republicans on a baseball in 2017 was motivated by anti-GOP hatred.
With the midterm elections just two weeks away, the liberal media have ramped up their efforts to drag their dreamboat, Democratic Congressman Beto O’Rourke over the finish line in the Texas Senate race. With President Trump’s visit to campaign for Senator Ted Cruz (R) on Monday, the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) seized on the opportunity boast about Beto’s qualities while downplaying his poor poll numbers.
In a series of truly mind-boggling reports on Monday, all three network morning shows bizarrely accused the Trump administration of considering “changing the definition of gender” by simply reversing Obama-era regulations that actually did change the definition of gender by abandoning the scientific and biological meaning of the term.
In an otherwise critical piece about Hillary Clinton’s continued high public profile being a problem for Democrats ahead of the midterms and 2020, Politico’s Annie Karni touted the former Democratic nominee having learned at least one lesson from 2016: she should have been nicer to reporters. Appearing on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports Friday afternoon, Karni emphasized how Clinton “understands that now she screwed up her relationship with the press.”
So Sen. Elizabeth Warren has announced she commissioned a DNA test to address her long-standing claims to have Cherokee ancestry. The Boston Globe reported Warren’s DNA analysis “suggests she’s between 1/64th and 1/1,024th Native American.”The fraction 1/1024 works out to 0.09 percent. So since Sen. Warren is .09 percent Indian, she may now be eligible to own .09 percent of a casino.
In a disturbing example of just how far down the gutter they had sunk, Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News featured back-to-back reports hyping opponents of President Trump deriding him and First Lady Melania Trump in a sexual manner. In sharp contrast, their broadcast network competitors CBS Evening News and ABC’s World News Tonight were classy enough to leave the low brow attacks out of their programs.
