On Tuesday night, NBC threw what could be described as a hissy fit following President Trump’s first State of the Union address by attacking it as a “subdued,” “tired” President and speech that will keep “the fact checkers...busy” but didn’t address Russia or gun control.
Both ABC and NBC on Thursday night and Friday morning skipped rabid leftist George Soros’s ranting in Davos that Donald Trump is a “threat to the world” and close to a “mafia state.” Only CBS — and only for a combined 29 seconds — bothered to report on the influential billionaire’s latest comments.
For almost an hour on Tuesday, the White House press corps stooped to a new low of clownishly liberal behavior, lobbing over a dozen questions at Navy Real Admiral and Dr. Ronny Jackson to insinuate that President Trump must be mentally ill to the point of Alzheimer’s Disease. This was all despite Jackson’s insistence that he’s in great health.
Without CNN’s Jim Acosta in the room, Thursday’s White House press briefing featured a more civil tone and traditional sparring sessions such as CBS’s Margaret Brennan grilling Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about gun control on the fifth anniversary of the horrific Sandy Hook massacre. Sanders’s answers didn’t sit well with some liberal journalists, so it briefly devolved into a shouting fest that might have included an off-screen cameo from usual suspect in Brian Karem.
On Wednesday, all three network morning shows were in full panic mode over President Trump’s upcoming decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. In the midst of the collective freak-out, hosts and correspondents warned that the “dangerous” move could lead to a “new wave of violence” across the Middle East and even inspire “terrorist attacks in the west.”
Christmas came early for the liberal Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) on Thursday when former President George W. Bush spoke out against the Donald Trump administration. In a disgusting display of sudden respect for a long time political foe, the network’s championed Bush’s hammering of the current president. And the icing on their anti-Trump cake was former President Obama doing the exact same thing too.
Thursday’s White House press briefing was conducted by White House Chief of Staff and Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly (Ret.), who thoroughly enjoyed having the liberal media shouting questions his direction and answering them all. Most importantly, Kelly responded to a question from the Fox Business Network’s Blake Burman about frustrations President Trump has by providing a brief, calm, sober takedown of the liberal media and their misreporting.
Monday’s White House Press Briefing was, once again, insufferable thanks to the questions from the throngs of liberal reports on scene, with this event dominated by defending NFL protesters and blaming Trump for preventing the news media from covering anything else.
Following President Trump’s forceful speech to the United Nations on Tuesday, Wednesday’s network morning shows all rushed to find Democrats like Hillary Clinton and Leon Panetta to blast the address as “dangerous,” “out of place” and a push to “threaten war.”
On Tuesday, hours before the Trump administration announced a gradual end to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration executive order implemented by President Obama, the network morning shows feared the “immigration battle” to come while promoting the “blue-state backlash” as left-wing activists took to the streets in protest.
With the recovery process just beginning in some parts of Texas on Thursday, following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, President Donald Trump pledged $1 million of his own money to aid relief efforts. Only two of the Big Three Networks (ABC and CBS) found it fitting to report Trump’s act of charity. NBC Nightly News was the only network news show to ignore it, instead, they simply mentioned that Trump planned to visit Houston on Saturday.
CBS This Morning on Tuesday devoted two segments to hammering Donald Trump on Hurricane Harvey, wondering if the storm will derail his fall plans on taxes, building a wall and for any plans he had on ending the so-called Dreamer program. Additionally, the journalists again hit the President for visiting Texas too soon.
