President Trump drew widespread condemnation from the liberal media on Tuesday after he put out a tweet describing porn star Stormy Daniels as having a “horseface” following news that a judge threw out a defamation suit she filed against him. And during CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, the bitter banter between Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon (not exactly the epitome of civility) devolved into shots at Trump for not being a looker.
On Sunday evening's CNN Newsroom, during a segment with race-obsessed CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill, host Ana Cabrera wrongly claimed that President Donald Trump had lamented that it is a scary time for "white men" when in reality his actual quote did not mention race at all but referred to "young men."
In a big legal victory for President Trump, a federal judge late Monday tossed out a defamation lawsuit filed against him by porn star Stormy Daniels and her lawyer/possible 2020 presidential candidate Michael Avenatti, demanding they pay Trump’s attorneys fees. When it came to Tuesday mornings’s broadcast network newscasts, the news all but fell on deaf ears with only 63 seconds of coverage and none mentioning the judge’s request that Daniels pay for Trump’s attorney fees.
Tuesday morning on CNN's New Day, liberal historian Doris Kearns Goodwin admits that President Trump has "made a connection" with his base, and that "he's made them feel that he's on their side."
Things grew tense Monday night on CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront (with fill-in host Jake Tapper) as one of the rare CNN conservatives in political commentator Scott Jennings threw down with The Nation’s Joan Walsh over Massachusetts Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren’s attention-grabbing attempt to reinforce her minuscule Native American heritage.
On Monday's CNN Newsroom, co-host Jim Sciutto and correspondent Kaylee Hartung seemed befuddled over why Georgia GOP gubernatorial nominee Brian Kemp accused his Democratic opponent, Stacey Abrams, of wanting non-citizens to vote illegally, all while ignoring recent video of her seeming to encourage just that.
On Monday's New Day, CNN co-host John Berman claimed that voting rights in the U.S. are "under siege" in some states controlled by Republicans as he introduced a "Reality Check" segment by left-leaning CNN analyst John Avlon. The left-leaning CNN contributor misinformed the audience by repeating misinformation about voter purge laws in states like Ohio and Georgia as he wrongly suggested that voters could be kicked off the voting rolls simply for going a couple of years without voting.
Why didn’t the “hilarious” Matt Damon impersonation of Brett Kavanaugh doom the conservative judge’s nomination? That’s an apparently serious question posed on CNN.com, Monday. The online article by Bill Carter set out to answer the query no one asked: “Why Matt Damon's hilarious SNL skit couldn't stop the Kavanaugh confirmation.”
Most people assume that minority comedians will take any opportunity they can to bash President Trump. So it came as a surprise when Dave Chappelle shared some optimism for Donald Trump’s fledgling presidency on a 2016 episode of Saturday Night Live. Newsweek reminded its readers of those words on Oct 13th: “I looked around that room and saw all those black faces … and it made me proud to be an American … So, in that spirit, I’m wishing Donald Trump luck. And I’m going to give him a chance. And we, the historically disenfranchised, demand that he give us one too.”
The liberal media have been itching to pin a death of a journalist on President Trump given his tough words and criticism for the American political press. And with the apparent murder, and reported dismemberment, of Washington Post writer Jamal Khashoggi at the hands of Saudi Arabia, there were a few members of the liberal media looking to exploit it. One such person was CNN media reporter Brian Stelter.
During Friday’s edition of Cuomo Prime Time, host Chris Cuomo went on a rant against President Trump and Fox News hosts during his closing argument. He began by saying that President Trump serves as the source of anger in American politics, playing several clips of the President, as a candidate, making statements such as “knock the crap out of him” and “try not to hurt him. If you do, I’ll defend you in court.”
Here’s the thing that baffles. Suddenly this week, as analysis of the Kavanaugh turmoil came to a head, my old CNN colleague Matt Lewis boldly suggested he obvious: that the mobs chasing Senator Ted Cruz and wife Heidi out of a Washington restaurant, not to mention those pounding - literally - on the doors of the Supreme Court and storming the Senate until arrested were, well, mobs.
