During his decades-long career, Jim Carrey has gone from being a popular comedian and movie star to a rabid liberal who thinks "half the country" is "cheering the locomotive that will kill them. He has diverted his creative energy into the political arena to bash his favorite target: President Donald Trump, as well as other people in the Republican Party.
Apparently sharing your wacky conspiracy theories is what counts for as news these days on MSNBC. Host Rachel Maddow sat down with Joy Reid on her AM Joy show July 21 to freak out about President Trump’s press conference with Vladimir Putin last week, gushing that his behavior clearly meant that he was secretly colluding with the Russians.
Some quotes need no introduction because they are just so shocking. On July 20, 1998, Time contributor Nina Burleigh said this of Bill Clinton: “I would be happy to give him a blow job just to thank him for keeping abortion legal. I think American women should be lining up with their presidential kneepads on to show their gratitude."
The liberal news media suffered a cataclysmic meltdown on June 27 over Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement, with the resulting damage likely visible from space. Two weeks later, following President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, viewers were treated to a second round of hysterics.
On Monday night, MSNBC prime-time shows spent the vast majority of their time discussing President Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court. Of the 27 guests which appeared over the four-hour block from 8:00 p.m. to midnight ET, not a single conservative was given time to speak about the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh.
On Tuesday night's Rachel Maddow Show, the MSNBC host's usual elongated lecture contained a few seconds of easily identifiable falsehood. In attempting to underline just how badly Trump negotiated with the North Koreans, she claimed the communists "gave up nothing. They promised nothing." This at the very least left out three American hostages released.
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?”
Sean Hannity congratulated his fellow Fox News Channel host Laura Ingraham in the 10 p.m. Eastern handoff on Monday night for “killing it” in the ratings. It looks like the angry leftist boycott completely backfired. TV Newser has the breakdwn that showed, for the first time ever, The Ingraham Angle beat MSNBC’s flagship 9 pm program The Rachel Maddow Show, in the key 25-54 demographic for the week.
Arguably it is the single most laughable thing that liberals do -- piously ooze purported concern for babies while otherwise elevating abortion on demand to a sacred right that must be defended at all costs. No leftist in media better evokes this perverted dynamic than MSNBC's clownish master of smarm, Rachel Maddow. Her most recent example might well have set a record for cringes among conservatives who comprise a sliver of her audience.
Even before President Trump’s announcement on Tuesday that the U.S. would be backing out of the Iran nuclear deal, the press had begun mounting an anxious defense of the agreeent. It’s no secret that the Obama-era treaty has been a foreign policy favorite among many in the media, and the same was true back when it was first negotiated in 2015.
During Monday morning’s edition of NBC’s Megyn Kelly Today program, the host led an extensive discussion regarding the charges of sexual harassment against Tom Brokaw and had some words of advice for the many women who have signed a letter supporting the former NBC Nightly News anchor. Referring to her experience with the late Roger Ailes, who was the chief executive officer for Fox News until he stepped down amid allegations of sexual misconduct in July of 2016, Kelly cautioned the NBC News colleagues who signed the letter: “You don’t know what you don’t know.”
It turns out that Rachel Maddow's speculation, articulated twice on Friday, that President Donald Trump ordered air strikes in Syria "because of scandal" is not limited at MSBNC to one far-left host. It's a perceived, widely-shared likelihood which has frequently been tied to Wag the Dog, a movie which appeared just before the late-1990s Clinton-Lewinsky scandal broke.
