During Poppy Harlow’s Wednesday show, CNN Newsroom, the anchor took the time to fact check some of President Trump’s tweets from that morning. However, Harlow stopped the buck halfway on one of the tweets, choosing to ignore a valid comparison to Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign.
On her 2:00 p.m. ET hour show on Friday, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur seized on a nasty ad put out by the Democrat’s House Majority PAC that – among other things – compared Republican Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan to disgraced Penn State football coach Joe Paterno, who helped cover up child sexual abuse for years. Rather than criticize the outrageous attack, Tur and Politico’s Jake Sherman touted the Democratic strategy to paint the GOP as “crooked” and “corrupt.”
As part of the liberal media’s obsession with Omarosa’s salacious allegations against the President from her book tour, Tuesday’s White House Press Briefing featured nearly four times as many questions about Omarosa-related topics as all other matters. Specifically, the breakdown was 39 Omarosa questions by 11 reporters to 10 questions for everything else from seven journalists (Afghanistan, Chinese influence in South America, ISIS, the Mueller probe, and Turkey).
During her 2:00 p.m. ET hour show on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur touted a July poll from the left-wing Center for American Progress that unsurprisingly found that a majority of respondents thought Republicans were “more corrupt” than Democrats. Tur quoted the biased survey results from a Politico article entitled: “Corruption message gaining traction against GOP.”
Showing the contempt that some journalists have for Americans who disagree with them, Politico writer Marc Caputo slimed Trump supporters at a rally for not having a “full set of teeth.” The since-deleted tweet can be seen below. Caputo has since deleted the tweet and apologized.
The midterm elections are slightly more than three months away, and already the Impeach Trump crusader Tom Steyer plans to spend at least $110 million on this election cycle.
Politico reported on July 31, that it will make the California billionaire “the largest single source of campaign cash on the left.” Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg has committed $80 million to try to “flip the House.”
Politico's editor in chief Blake Hounshell has proclaimed on July 20 that he is no longer a skeptic of Trump-Russia collusion. See, back in February, on the heels of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's indictment of a number of Russian companies but with no finding of collusion with any American, Hounshell declared himself a skeptic. However, now that a second set of indictments of Russians have been issued also with no evidence presented of collusion with any Americans, Hounshell suddenly has declared himself as no longer being a skeptic.
So what caused Hounshell to stop being a skeptic despite no evidence of collusion by Mueller and his merry band of intrepid Democrats intensely investigating this matter for over a year? In large part it was because of Trump's body language at Helsinki. I kid you not.
Is anything Michelle Obama does about the midterm elections "nonpartisan"? Politico is trying to pretend it can happen. Edward Isaac-Dovere began: "Michelle Obama is jumping into the 2018 campaigns with a voter registration initiative that will be strictly nonpartisan — exciting and frustrating top Democrats who’d like the popular former first lady to actively campaign for candidates." With a team of Obama staffers and A-list celebrities...."nonpartisan." Oh please.
The left has been in a frenzy since Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court on Monday. They’ve found their ammunition against the nominee in a in a 2009 article for the Minnesota Law Review written by Kavanaugh, in which he argued that a president should be exempt from investigation and civil suits until they are out of office or impeached and removed from office. The D.C. Circuit Court judge noted in the article that it would take an act of Congress to change the law, which would take pressure off the shoulders of those who have the world’s most stressful job.
In late June, Politico's Josh Gerstein reported that the Associated Press, in a 2017 meeting with FBI and Justice Department officials a month before the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, had voluntarily "disclosed the existence of a storage locker used by Paul Manafort." A Sunday report by Gerstein further revealed that AP gave FBI-DOJ "a bevy of facts" about Manafort's business dealings. Two internal FBI memos released in Friday court filings documenting that meeting's discussions indicate that the wire service essentially gave the FBI and DOJ a roadmap for investigating and prosecuting Manafort, effectively acting as unpaid informants.
Political theorist and former congressional speechwriter Rob Goodman advocates in Politico that if the Democrats ever regain power they 'should play dirty.' Among the dirty tactics would be to pack the Supreme Court, split California seven ways to get more Democrats in the Senate, and allow felons to vote for starters.
Politico explains why the college commencement speeches this year by 2020 Democrat presidential hopefuls were incredibly lame. It was the sad assessment of David Siders and Daniel Strauss writing in the normally Democrat-friendly publication on July 1 that 2020 hopefuls get failing grade for commencement speeches. Their subtitle got into a bit more detail as to why the failing grade: "In place of soaring rhetoric and enduring oratory, college graduates got a dose of banality."
