Tuesday morning on CNN Newsroom, CNN contributor Sally Kohn slammed Donald Trump and his supporters. Kohn argued that the billionaire real estate mogul’s rise “is troubling to anyone who cares about this country and its values.” Kohn asserted there was something more “insidious” about Trump’s surge: “You know, there is disaffected, highly racialized, highly us versus them part of the American electorate that he is firing up, and that’s – Trump’s a clown. We should be worried about who he's speaking to.”
Caitlyn Jenner wins out over Kim Kardashian in femininity, according to one media pundit.
The CNN political commentator and Daily Beast writer stated “I Want My Daughter to Copy the Caitlyn Jenner Model of Femininity” – “not the Kardashian one” – in the headline of a June 3 piece for Elle. Kohn “imagine[d] a day” where parents would “counsel” their little boys and girls to “be more like Caitlyn Jenner.”
On Friday's CNN Newsroom, liberal anchor Carol Costello actually didn't buy the spin of a Hillary Clinton supporter on her skirting of questions from the press. When Democratic strategist Robert Zimmerman did his best to shield Mrs. Clinton, Costello interjected, "I want our political candidates to take tough questions." She later underlined that "she's not answering questions! About her foundation – there are really important issues out there that she needs to address!" Costello later complimented Jeb Bush: "At least he's out there answering hard questions!"
Early Monday evening during the violent riots in Baltimore, liberal CNN commentator Sally Kohn tweeted her thoughts on the events by lamenting that “looting” was “a real shame,” but “police violence against [the] black community” was [emphasis hers] “FAR MORE shameful.”
Left-wing CNN commentator Sally Kohn couldn't contain her glee in a Tuesday post on Twitter, where she announced her $2,000 "bowl-a-thon" for the New York Abortion Access Fund. Kohn wrote, "YOU GUYS!!! I’m bowling for abortion access. Donate now. "
Today’s “Mainstream Media Scream” for the WashingtonExaminer.com spotlighted a low moment Saturday afternoon on CNN when the panel of analysts put up their hands to mimic the long-ago discredited “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” narrative out of the Ferguson, Missouri shooting. CNN political analyst Sally Kohn noted the anti-police protests occurring in New York City and Washington, DC and proclaimed: “We want you to know that our hearts are out there marching with them.”
Leave it to a liberal CNN commentator to find the connection between chicken and gay sex. Sally Kohn congratulated Chick-fil-A on its recent success of taking over Kentucky Fried Chicken as Americas preferred fast food chicken provider. She applauded the chain for providing more healthy options, but warned that the move somehow equals being...er, gay? “But psst! Don’t you know ‘skinny’=gay?” What?
In an article appearing in The Daily Beast, Kohn bizarrely compared the “newness” of Chick-fil-A and Americas predisposition to try new things as similar to gay sex. “Chick-fil-A is like gay sex. Don’t knock it till you try it!”
Discussing the growing immigration crisis on the July 9 edition of At This Hour with Berman and Michaela, CNN commentator Sally Kohn and host Michaela Pereira both jumped to defend President Obama from attacks from both Republicans and Democrats on his response to the flood of children arriving at the southern border.
Pereira wondered how people would dare to label the crisis as Obama’s Katrina moment, asking, “is it even fair to compare this to Katrina? You think about the fact that hundreds of people lost their lives, their homes, their livelihoods, is this a fair assessment?” Meanwhile, liberal pundit Sally Kohn went further, rejecting the entire premise that there is even a crisis to begin with: [MP3 audio here; video below]
On Monday's This Hour, CNN's John Berman underlined that the Supreme Court's ruling against the Obama administration's contraceptive mandate was "another setback to the administration, in what has been a difficult year for this White House." Berman later asserted that "this has to be very frustrating for them. They feel blocked politically, legally, foreign policy-wise. Pretty much, everywhere they look now, they're getting blocked."
Co-anchor Michaela Pereira also played up how all three female justices dissented in the Hobby Lobby case and forwarded the left's spin about the Court's ruling: [MP3 audio available here; video below the jump]
On Monday's This Hour, CNN's Michaela Pereira acted as an apologist for the student and/or faculty-led protests in recent weeks that forced out several high-profile speakers from participating in commencement ceremonies: "Isn't it a rite of passage to question authority and to question things and protest things in college? Isn't that what those college years are about – to take a stand?"
Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter also specifically lauded the Haverford College students whose protest led to the withdrawal of their commencement speaker: [MP3 audio available here; video below the jump]
Liberal pundit Sally Kohn is on Yahoo! this morning with an article titled "What I learned as a liberal talking head on Fox News." She learned conservatives were personable and human.
What? Yes, she says that would amaze "fellow liberals who had not watched much Fox News but had seen the most outlandish clips of Bill O'Reilly or Sean Hannity that had made it to 'The Daily Show' or YouTube. They perhaps imagined that walking down the hallway outside makeup, Mr. O'Reilly might yell then, too, instead of just saying hello. That's a funny notion, but it couldn't be further from the truth."
"Wendy Davis Will Turn Texas Purple" insists the teaser headline on the Daily Beast front page today. No, this is NOT satire, but the honest-to-goodness belief of community organizer turned Daily Beast contributor Sally Kohn.
The headline for the story itself -- "Wendy Davis Is One Step Closer To Turning Texas Purple" -- dials down the hype a tiny bit, but the argument of her piece is pretty clear, even as Kohn desperately latches on to one poll for her ray of hope for the Lone Star State (emphasis mine):
