The anti-Trump opposition to President Donald Trump has gotten so loony that even Never Trumper David Frum is now worried that their crazed rantings will undermine the case against Trump. The senior editor of The Atlantic expressed his concerns in that periodical today with The Anti-Trump Recoil Goes Too Far:
So just how desperate is the ranking Democrat of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, to find any materials proving collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia? Apparently desperate enough to buy into a wild prank pulled off by a pair of Russian comedians to the extent that he spent eight minutes with them on the phone in an attempt to finally realize his dream of proving collusion.
What if they conducted a Special Counsel investigation and all you got was a lousy T-shirt? That pretty much sums up the opinion of legal expert Paul Rosenzweig in The Atlantic magazine on January 30. In an opinion piece sure to depress many liberals as well as much of the mainstream media, Rosenzweig confirms what seems to be common sense to the layman: it is silly to have an obstruction of justice charge when there is no underlying crime.
The media has been hard at work discrediting and downplaying President Trump’s first State of the Union address before it even happens. The annual presidential address will happen tomorrow evening on January 30, but on CNN’s New Day Monday, the liberal network was already whining that whatever Trump said would have no impact, because his presidency was irredeemable, by this time anyway.
Because President Donald Trump has been spotted holding water bottles a few times with both hands, a committee should be formed to examine his brain in order to make recommendations about his removal from office via the 25th Amendment. Such is the fantasy of one James Hamblin, a senior editor at Atlantic magazine who, perhaps, should have his brain examined for proposing such a nutty idea.
Hamblin even analyzed Trump's speech patterns when he was interviewed years ago by Larry King and Oprah to make the determination for brain analysis by committee. This bizarre proposal comes as no real surprise since several months ago Hamblin proposed that we give up beef for beans in order to reduce climate change. Hamblin's latest idea is equally as full of flatulence as we shall see in Is Something Neurologically Wrong With Donald Trump?
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle, The Atlantic editor-at-large and MSNBC contributor Steve Clemons actually made a veiled Adolf Hitler reference to attack Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as well as President Donald Trump over the U.S. relocating its embassy to Jerusalem.
The mainstream media has been busy over the past year engineering the narrative that the removal from office via impeachment of President Donald Trump is almost inevitable. Although they have had a few bumps on the road to this future fable, which caused them to switch to removal from office via the 25th Amendment fantasy, their impeachment dream is back on track. This fantasy reached a fevered pitch last week on Friday when many liberals went into a state of ecstasy, most notably Joy Behar, over the fake news report by Brian Ross of ABC News about "candidate" Trump contacting the Russians which later that day had to be retracted.
Despite the many setbacks in the impeachment fantasy, most liberals seem to continue yearning for it as if Trump remaining in office would destroy their souls. Tom Steyer even blew $20 million in impeachment ads in pursuit of this fantasy. Unfortunately for Steyer and his fellow impeachment demanding liberals, contributing editor (and very very liberal) Peter Beinart of Atlantic magazine has tossed cold water upon their future fable of impeachment on December 3 in 'The Odds of Impeachment Are Dropping.'
David Graham, a writer at The Atlantic, thinks it might not be a good idea to annoy your fellow Thanksgiving guests with discussions about politics. However, this year he is making an exception and is urging his fellow liberals to attempt reeducating the "unenlightened" Thanksgiving guests with a plethora of leftist talking points. Why? Because of President Donald Trump.
There are some situations in the news just begging to be mocked. One such example was the report that snowflake social justice warrior students at Reed College in Oregon objected to one of my favorite Saturday Night Live skits ever performed: Steve Martin singing "King Tut" in 1978.
In an age where sexual harassment is dominating the spotlight, has Bill Clinton’s media Day of Reckoning finally arrived? Michelle Goldberg’s op-ed in Tuesday’ New York Times, “I Believe Juanita,” marks another crack in the ice of the liberal media’s cover-up of Clinton’s shameful, and shamefully dismissed, sex-harassment escapades. “Juanita” is Juanita Broaddrick, who in 1999 raised a credible allegation that she was raped by Bill Clinton in 1978, when he was attorney general of Arkansas. Broaddrick was demonized by Democrats and ignored by the media. It's a fairly big step from a fiercely pro-abortion Democratic defender like Goldberg. But she still can’t stop blaming the “right-wing,” as shown in the text box, “Coming to terms with Bill Clinton and right-wing disinformation.”
On Tuesday's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell, frequent MSNBC Republican guest David Frum lamented over the trend towards loosening gun laws -- even after high-profile mass shootings -- and then predicted that it would be necessary to convince gun owners that "you're a bad parent if you have a gun in the house" to get the public to support more gun restrictions.
The October 2017 issue of The Atlantic was devoted to “The Trump Presidency – A Damage Report,” part of which has already been covered at Newsbusters. Editor Jeffrey Goldberg introduced the issue’s theme in his opening Editor’s Note, “The Autocratic Element,” while one of his contributors also blamed the liberal press for (in Bob Woodward’s phrase) “binge-drinking the anti-Trump Kool-Aid.”
