During Monday’s edition of World News Tonight, ABC demonstrated what they really thought of President Trump when they pushed political accusations that he committed an act of treason during his press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. And that’s not hyperbole. The on-screen headline ABC ran with stated it definitively: “Critics: Trump’s Press Conference ‘Treasonous’”.
Monday morning, ABC’s Good Morning America bashed President Trump for daring to keep his meeting with Russia’s Vladimir Putin after 12 Russian intelligence officers were indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Friday, for interfering in the 2016 presidential election. Touting the Democrats’ argument, ABC anchors and reporters slammed Trump for continuing to go ahead with the “dangerous” pre-planned summit that started today in Helsinki, Finland, and complained that the meeting was a failure already.
On Friday, the network morning shows devoted much of their coverage of President Trump’s visit to Britain on protesters “denouncing and mocking” him. Hosts and correspondents seemed to delight in the president receiving a “not-so-royal welcome” and being taunted by a giant balloon flying over the British capital “depicting Mr. Trump as an angry baby.”
An American president lecturing Britain on internal domestic matters is highly objectionable. Except when it isn’t. Good Morning America journalist Terry Moran on Friday derided Donald Trump for “barging into British domestic politics, slamming Prime Minister [Theresa] May for her plan for Brexit.” But the same Moran in 2016 had no objections to Barack Obama injecting himself into Britain’s highly contested decision on whether to leave the European Union, just weeks before the decisive vote.
While on his trip Wednesday to the NATO summit in Brussels, Belgium on Wednesday, President Trump wasted no time in slamming member counties for not paying enough for their self-defense. The president also targeted criticism at Germany for climbing in bed with Russia, the enemy of the alliance, to satiate its energy needs. Of course, the liberal media were shrieking like banshees and on ABC’s World News Tonight, they touted the German Chancellor for taking the “high road” with her response.
In a mid-Tuesday morning tweet, ABC News chief foreign correspondent and longtime Supreme Court correspondent Terry Moran engaged in some mansplaining and anti-Fox News chicanery by voicing displeasure with Fox News @ Night host Shannon Bream for claiming that she left her spot Monday night outside the Supreme Court because she “felt threatened” by the “very volatile” “mood” by the far-left protesters.
On Good Morning America Wednesday morning, ABC’s foreign correspondent Terry Moran hyped President Trump’s rebuke of a European ally at this week’s NATO Summit as an unprecedented act of betrayal against our allies. While acknowledging that past presidents have had “plenty of problems” with our European allies, Moran judged Trump as taking those problems to a “whole new level” wondering, was he “trying to reform NATO or blow it up?”
Since the 1980s, the well-worn liberal playbook is to claim that Republican appointees to the Supreme Court should be voted down as ideologues who are outside the judicial mainstream. The establishment media aids this tactic by often tagging GOP nominees as “conservative,” while ignoring — or even disputing — the liberal bent of Democratic nominees to the Court. True to form, ABC, CBS and NBC’s morning and evening broadcasts branded Judge Brett Kavanaugh a “conservative” a total of eleven times in the first 24 hours since his nomination by President Trump.
Hours after preemptively deriding an unnamed Supreme Court nominee as “controversial,” ABC’s Nightline on Monday night worried about the “reliably conservative” Brett Kavanaugh and the vacancy that is sending “shivers” down the spines of liberals.
Moments after Monday night’s White House event concluded in which President Trump announced D.C. Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his Supreme Court nominee, ABC News ripped into Kavanaugh and sought to cast doubt on his confirmation as “not a slam dunk” that’ll trigger “a battle royale in the Senate.”
While speculating on who President Trump would nominate to Supreme Court, on Monday’s Good Morning America, ABC co-host Robin Roberts and correspondent Terry Moran engaged in a brief political strategy session to advise Democrats on the best way to obstruct any pick for the high court.
With Senate Democrats in the minority and helpless to stop President Trump and Senate Republicans from confirming the next nominee to the Supreme Court, ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News spent a portion of Thursday’s broadcasts looking to the few marquee, moderate GOP Senators to block whatever nominee was put forward. They were also worried of red state Democrats who would cross the aisle.
