Fox & Friends
While most of Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ two-year tenure as President Trump’s press secretary led to many clashes with the media, her replacement -- Stephanie Grisham -- is continuing some of those traditions, including no daily briefings on a regular basis. Grisham made the announcement while a guest on the Fox & Friends morning program on Monday, when she accused reporters of turning the event into political “theater” during their attempts to “get famous.”
Over the past several days, in contrast with the other networks, Fox News Channel has been giving attention to one of the Parkland parents who is pro-gun and blames President Barack Obama and other Democrats for school policies making it easier for Nikolas Cruz to murder his daughter, Meadow, and 16 other students at Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018. Andrew Pollack has appeared on a number of Fox News shows to promote his new book, Why Meadow Died, which gives the results of his own investigative efforts into the school's history of covering up Cruz's severe behavioral problems that should have already landed him with a criminal record, making it harder for him to purchase his murder weapon.
On Fox and Friends Monday, the hosts brought on Fox Business host Charles Payne to comment on how the media is now openly hoping for an economic recession under President Trump. Payne called the media’s newest obsession a “deliberate” attempt to derail the good economy under Trump, and argued there was “no economic data” to suggest a recession was near.
Liberals in the media go ballistic whenever a celebrity publicly supports President Trump. The latest target of this kind of assault is Major League Baseball star Mariano Rivera, who was unanimously inducted into the Hall of Fame on Sunday despite a hit piece slamming the former New York Yankees pitcher for having “far-right politics.” (Ever notice that conservatives are often described as being on the "far right" while liberals are rarely called the "far left?")
Rush Limbaugh appeared on Friday's Fox & Friends and addressed the feuding between Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the radical House freshmen like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Limbaugh said the fracas was funny, but insisted the Democrats will eventually unify for 2020. They're coming apart now just because they're so frustrated at failing to remove President Trump from office.
The difference between patriots and Trump-deranged Hollywood elites is day and night. This morning, actor Jon Voight appeared on Fox and Friends with Gold Star mom Karen Vaughn -- mother of a slain Navy SEAL -- to speak about the July 4th “Rally for Freedom.” When asked about an Alyssa Milano tweet calling him a “has been” and an “F-lister,” Voight prayed for the good of his fellow actor.
Liberal journalists are determined not to give Donald Trump a win on anything. And that includes his win in achieving a deal with Mexico to curb illegal immigration. This proved too stressful for the media to handle, thus they resorted to their favorite hobby of criticizing the President in any form possible.
The Media Research Center’s Tim Graham on Friday declared that “hatred and the loathing and the disgust” is a lot easier to spot from journalists these days. Appearing on Fox and Friends to promote Unmasked: Big Media's War Against Trump, Graham called for journalists to simply do their jobs: “We want reporters to tell us what happened today. What did politicians say today? And I would even like them to say what politicians said in public instead of always what they said behind the scenes.”
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Monday’s Fox & Friends and responded to the latest insults from ever-bitter CNN political analyst and American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryan, who had stated on Thursday that Sanders “can’t” be “trust[ed]” and quipped that she should have her head “lopp[ed]....off.”
Over the weekend, as several MSNBC shows covered the backlash to Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar dismissively referring to the 9/11 terrorist attacks as "some people did something," it was repeatedly claimed that President Donald Trump and other conservatives took her words "out of context." Host David Gura even went so far as to make the ridiculous claim that her comments were similar to President George W. Bush's iconic speech delivered at Ground Zero a few days after the attacks.
On Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, during a discussion of conservative reaction to Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar dismissively referring to the 9/11 attacks as "some people did something," Washington Post columnist and MSNBC contributor Jennifer Rubin slammed Fox News as an entity that is "endangering people of color" and "destroying political thought."
Leave it to weekday afternoon CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin to carry water for Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN), complaining on Thursday that Omar was “forced to defend her patriotism again” after Omar downplayed the Islamic terror attacks on September 11, 2001 as merely “some people did something.”
