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.
In what seemed like the ramblings of a 19th century Luddite, New York Times columnist and Pulitzer Prize winner, Tom Friedman appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press Sunday where he issued a ridiculous warning about the US economy under President Donald Trump. “So what’s going to happen if prices go up? American companies will build those factories here,” he exclaimed, “And you know what they'll do? They'll completely robotize them. There will be no jobs!”
Appearing as a guest on Friday's New Day, liberal New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman fretted over what he viewed as the "shear madness" of Donald Trump choosing attorney David Friedman to be the next ambassador to Israel, and the likelihood that a Trump administration will finally relocate the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
During the campaign, the liberal news media did everything they could to prevent Donald Trump’s election, but he won anyway. Now, journalists are trashing the way Trump is handling his transition, as well as his early Cabinet picks. But eight years ago, viewers heard a very different tone coming from the media, as journalists celebrated the election of Barack Obama, cheered the “brain power” of the “team of geniuses” he was assembling for his Cabinet, and tingled over how “cool” Obama seemed as he assumed the responsibilities of office.
New York Times columnist and author Thomas Friedman has never passed up a chance to trash the Republican Party and so during Sunday’s Meet the Press, he suggested that “maybe this party needs to crash and burn and this version of the Republican Party needs to die” in order for it to be reborn into a more competitive party against Democrats (translation: reshape their ideology).
