The Daily Beast
On his weekly HBO show Last Week Tonight, John Oliver took a shot at Meghan McCain, now the outspoken conservative on ABC's The View. It came as Oliver discussed the Eurovision song contest, which included a kooky anti-capitalist sado-masochist rock band from Iceland called Hatari, and one member (shown in bondage gear) was the son of Iceland's ambassador to England. Oliver joked: "You may be thinking that’s the most embarrassing child of a prominent political figure you’ve ever seen, but let me remind you of the continued existence of Meghan McCain!"
When lefties get upset, accusation of, or allusions to, racism can start flying. The left is very upset about states passing laws restricting abortion. On cue, Daily Beast writer Barrett Holmes Pitner composed a piece claiming that Alabama’s recent pro-life legislation is borrowed from old pro-slavery America and Jim Crow. The point, ladies, is that the South’s gonna do it again, and this time they’re gonna put “‘y’all back” in chains (hat tip Joe Biden).
Hollywood and the media always love a pro-abortion storyline on TV and liberals seemed to particularly enjoy a horrifically profane rant against pro-life sidewalk counselors outside an abortion facility on Sunday night. Veep, an HBO comedy starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus in it’s seventh and final season, had campaign staffer Amy Brookheimer (Anna Chlumsky) abort Dan Egan’s (Reid Scott) baby on the April 14 episode, titled “Pledge.”
Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale comprises every lefty abortion-lover’s fever dream for what current politics under President Trump looks like. And even though it’s not exactly healthy (more like psychotic) to consider America to be a right-wing religious dystopia, we have the show’s star Elizabeth Moss to further the insanity in her latest interview with Daily Beast.
Stacey Abrams has a knack for fiction. These days, her skill manifests mostly in her refusal to admit she lost the Georgia governor’s race fair and square. But once upon a time, her creative outlet was authoring smutty books. We know this only because during Wednesday night’s The Late Show, Stephen Colbert decided to poke some mild fun at Abrams by reading “steamy” excerpts from the politician’s erotic fiction.
In spite of growing wages, extremely low unemployment and nearly 3 percent economic growth in 2018, the liberal media are becoming obsessed with recession. It didn’t matter that CFOs were confident the U.S. economy “will not experience a recession” in 2019. They were fixated by recession prospects in March anyway.
Every. Single. Day.
Season 3 of CBS All-Access’ surreal drama The Good Fight returned last Thursday and critics can’t stop raving about the Trump-bashing show. A spin-off of the Emmy-winning The Good Wife, which ran on CBS from 2009-2016, The Good Fight ostensibly follows Diane Lockhart’s (Christine Baranski) work at a historically black Chicago law firm, but mostly documents her three year freak out over the election of President Trump.
Denial is an addictive coping mechanism, and comedian Kathy Griffin’s latest interview is a masterclass on how it turns people into a contemptible pile of crazy. Griffin used the friendly lefty reporters at The Daily Beast to spin another account of her innocence and mistreatment by President Trump after her unsavory decapitation performance art.
The idea that a subtle rouge on a man be some shocking or subversive thing need not apply anymore as DC superhero actor and crossdresser extraordinaire Ezra Miller would like to prove. The Flash star recently graced St. Laurent’s Paris Fashion Week Runway with his usual genderbending style and The Daily Beast loved it so much, they think other guys should try it out.
Apparently last night’s Oscars weren’t woke enough for some devout lefties. Despite jokes at the expense of Donald Trump, several mentions of the plight of immigrants, and of course some race-baiting from director Spike Lee, Daily Beast writer Kevin Fallon claimed that the show “made the case for its own irrelevancy.”
The NRA may have just discovered the best way to trigger far lefties this Valentines Day, literally. Alt-left media outfit The Daily Beast put on its best righteous indignation face on Thursday by decrying the National Rifle Association’s romantic holiday marketing, which consisted in advertising the AR-15 as a “crowning jewel — just like your special lady.”
Two days after airing a Super Bowl commercial that depicts journalists as people of great importance and integrity, The Washington Post published an error-ridden fact check of President Trump’s State of the Union address. Written by Glenn Kessler, Salvador Rizzo, and Meg Kelly, it contains an array of half-truths, straw men, and outright falsehoods.
