On today's Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski claimed Elizabeth Warren has had her [liberal] message "from the get-go, her entire life, her whole life." There's only one tiny problem: it seems that Warren was a registered Republican until . . . 1996, when Warren was 47 years old.
“Pete Buttigieg is having his Vogue moment,” began a Style section article by Washington Post fashion writer Robin Givhan. It’s the latest attempt by progressive media to force the transformation of the boyish and soft-spoken left-wing candidate into a pop culture phenomenon. On the paper’s May 1 Style front page, Buttigieg’s smoldering black-and-white Vogue photoshoot image stood out, accompanied by Givhan’s lusty sales pitch for this sexed-up version of the gay South Bend mayor.
As if we don’t see 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders often enough, a comic book company has decided to produce a one-shot singing the praises of the Independent Vermont senator with the curious title Talk Bernie to Me! The issue will feature three covers, with one of Sanders’ smiling face, another with him as He-Man from the Masters of the Universe animated series holding up a sword in front of the White House and a third depicting his arrest during a protest many years ago.
In a long-winded puff piece for The Hollywood Reporter, writer Jeremy Barr gushed about blowhard Prime Time host Chris Cuomo and how he was “fighting for his life on CNN.” The piece was filled with a load of gag-inducing puffery, but here’s just a few doses.
Samuel L. Jackson just loves using his Hollywood-manufactured tough guy image to throw his weight around the political scene. This time the “bad motherf***ker” handed down his judgement of all the people who haven’t got on the #resistance train, insisting that if people aren’t bashing Donald Trump then they’re “complicit” and that’s “not fucking okay.”
On Monday, The New York Post’s Page Six reported that ABC’s Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts complained to The Cut magazine that her homosexuality created a “no win situation” [sic] for her ridiculous softball interview with Empire actor and accused hoaxer Jussie Smollett.
Interview magazine published a pro-abortion puff piece on Feb. 20 in which Chelsea Clinton gave a softball interview to Planned Parenthood President Dr. Leana Wen in what was essentially a love letter to abortion giant.
Mika Brzezinski framed it as a "worry," but her statement can also be seen as giving advice [unintentionally, one would hope] to America's enemies, encouraging them to seize the current moment to act against us. On today's Morning Joe, Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic imagined America's adversaries saying "we don't know what the hell they're going to do, because this President is completely unpredictable." Responded Mika: "I would take it a step further, and worry that we look weak. And that this is the moment that anybody with ill will has to act."
At what point does Trump Derangement Syndrome stop being handy shorthand for the liberal media's hatred of the President, and start being taken seriously as an actual mental disorder? The question arises after witnessing Joe Scarborough—seriously it would appear—raising on today's Morning Joe the possibility that Donald Trump "doesn't know how to read."
On Morning Joe, commenting on remarks by Rudy Giuliani that could be seen as critical of President Trump, Mika Brzezinski twice asks at "what time" Giuliani crafted his remarks. She twice suggests that the explanation for Rudy's candor could lie in the fact that they came "late in the day." Back in 2016, at a time when Trump was considering Giuliani as a possible selection for Secretary of State, Mika hinted that Rudy had been "drinking a lot" during a meeting with Trump.
Morning Joe regular and professor Eddie Glaude Jr. calls Mississippi Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, who yesterday won re-election, the "last breath of the inheritors of the plantation class." Glaude also claims that Mississippi could change if poor people "acted in their interests."
The Hollywood Reporter should really just focus on reporting the petty facts of celebrity living, because beyond that their credibility takes a wicked nosedive. Recently THR critics praised the latest season of The Man in The High Castle as “must see TV” for its “Trump-era relevancy.”
