New York Times columnist Tom Friedman who at least until very recently suffered from extreme Trump Derangement Syndrome wrote on on May 21 that Trump is correct in attempting to reset our trade relationship with China. In case you thought this was Friedman merely experiencing a brief moment of mental clarity, he also appeared with Steve Bannon on CNBC and mostly agreed with him about the need to push China into a new trade agreement.
It took a few days, but The New York Times finally got around to apologizing for publishing in its international edition a grossly anti-Semitic cartoon depicting a blind President Trump wearing a yarmulke and being led by a dog resembling Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The dog wore a Star of David around its neck. At first The Times blamed a single editor and poor oversight, but Sunday the newspaper issued a formal apology.
Did New York Times columnist Tom Friedman have a true epiphany resulting in a "flying pigs" moment when, after going on a tour of the border, he declared that a high wall as President Donald Trump has wanted is needed? Well, not exactly. His call for a high border wall problably comes more from desperate political expediency since Friedman has a history of extreme Trump Derangement Syndrome.
On two consecutive editions of Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews offered concerns Tuesday and Wednesday night about the Trump administration’s decision to recognize Venezuela opposition leader Juan Guaido as the interim president and level sanctions against the murderous Nicolas Maduro regime, applying further pressure to the failed socialist utopia.
We have enjoyed writing satirical "Notable Quotables" on April Fools Day, the kind that are realistic enough to be plausible. New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman somehow thinks in his latest column that this is a pretty realistic satire on how supine national Republican leaders are to Trump, playing off Trump's claim his backers would stick with him if shot someone on Fifth Avenue. The subheadline was "Your vote in the midterms matters, because Republicans in Congress won’t restrain the president’s excesses."
The New York Times carried a column last weekend by Maureen Dowd where Jimmy Carter shocked the liberals by saying the media "feel free to claim that Trump is mentally deranged and everything else without hesitation." Times columnist Thomas Friedman took it to a new level on Wednesday's Charlie Rose on PBS. Trump isn't mentally ill...he's a brain-eating disease.
Every Single Person We Don’t Like in the Liberal Media eventually won “Quote of the Year” at the Media Research Center’s 30th Anniversary Gala featuring the 2017 DisHonors Awards on Thursday, but it also came away with the Trumpocalypse Award moments earlier in the evening. Once The Federalist's Mollie Heminway declared the winner, conservative writer and former CNN political commentator Jeffrey Lord accepted the award, in jest, on behalf of liberal journalists featured in the Trumpocalypse compilation.
A boisterous crowd of nearly 900 conservatives and guests packed the National Building Museum on Thursday night for the Media Research Center’s 30th Anniversary Gala featuring the 2017 DisHonors Awards. After the audience selected the most outrageous quote in three categories, the crowd singled out Every Single Person We Don’t Like in the Liberal Media for the ultimate “DisHonor” of being the MRC's “Quote of the Year.”
New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman appeared on the Tuesday edition of CNN’s The Situation Room and, in addition to flaunting his love for communist China, suggested that President Trump is mentally unstable even though “I'm not a doctor.”
NBC’s Chuck Todd took a firm stand during Sunday’s Meet the Press as he pushed accusations that Trump’s campaign was colluding with the Russian government. “Connecting the dots between the Trump campaign and Russia,” he declared during his opening tease, “The growing evidence of the Trump-Russia connection threatens to consume the opening months of Donald Trump's presidency.” Through all of his hyperbole, Todd failed to mention that there is no evidence of such collusion.
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's New Day on CNN, New York Times columnist Tom Friedman lambasted Republicans for not pushing the Trump administration on Russia more aggressively, calling it "one of the most shameful things that I have seen in almost 30 years of being in Washington, D.C." The liberal columnist went on to make his latest over the top invocation of the 9/11 attacks and the attack on Pearl Harbor as he worried that Russia disrupted American democracy, making the worn-out misleading claim that Russia "hacked our elections," even though it was actually the Democratic National Committee that was targeted.
On Monday's New Day on CNN, as liberal New York Times columnist Tom Friedman appeared as a guest, after CNN co-host Chris Cuomo brought up the White House statement for International Holocaust Remembrance Day that broke precedent and did not specifically mention "Jews" or "anti-Semitism," co-host Alisyn Camerota wondered if anti-Semitism at Breitbart News might be tied to the wording.
