Saturday Night Live
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!"
Tina Fey doesn't think Saturday Night Live can influence people because they're just so darn "fair" and they have their finger on the pulse of how the nation is "already feeling."
March provided television viewers and streaming platform binge-watchers another heavy dose of Trump hate. At least another 40 separate entertainment programs, on major networks, cable TV, and popular streaming platforms continued their vicious anti-Trump propaganda. What once might have been shocking is all too commonplace for a media in the later stages of Trump Derangement syndrome.
Good for literally every sound-minded person on the planet: Alec Baldwin says he’s going to start winding down his terrible impression of Donald Trump. Sitting down with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, Baldwin intimated that he might be starting to grow tired of the role, and that it’s the SNL producers who “keep pulling me back in.” Sad!
Appearing on Monday’s Today show to promote a new movie, Alec Baldwin dismissed President Trump’s criticism of how the actor portrays him on Saturday Night Live. Baldwin claimed that he “can’t care” what Trump thinks and lamented the “dark history” that has supposedly occurred since the President took office.
There’s no two ways about it: Robert Mueller is a heartbreaker. He led the Democrats, the media and Hollywood on for two years, loving them and leaving them with “No Collusion.” To Hollywood lefties, there’s nothing for it but sobbing into a pint of Haagen-Daaz. Hopefully, it’s Chocolate Chip Crow flavored.
Entertainment media continue to wage war on President Donald Trump and conservatives, with major networks, cable TV, and streaming services hurling insults and ignorant opinions at every opportunity. In February alone, at least 40 separate entertainment programs attacked conservative values and/or President Donald Trump while promoting a hardcore progressive agenda.
On Sunday's MediaBuzz show on Fox News Channel, host Howard Kurtz gave a commentary in which he highlighted recent media double standards on the issue of whites wearing blackface, including the firing of Megyn Kelly from NBC's Today show simply for mildly defending the practice, when several prominent liberals affiliated with NBC and in other places have openly done routines in blackface in the not too distant past.
Alec Baldwin sure knows a thing or two about the feeling of being threatened. He’s seen it multiple times, both in the eyes of the man he punched in a parking squabble, and in the fearful faces of the paparazzi he’s been recorded bellowing at. But now Baldwin expects the world to believe he’s the snowflake after Donald Trump criticized his Trump impression on SNL, wondering whether the “retribution” Trump seeks for character assassination means harming Baldwin or “his family.”
Entertainment TV is far worse than news when it comes to progressive bias and hatred for conservative people and views. A cross section of nightly programming on major networks, cable TV or popular streaming services is loaded with anti-conservative, anti-Trump propaganda. January features at least 33 separate entertainment programs that attack conservative values and/or President Donald Trump while promoting a hardcore progressive agenda.
Many conservatives and Republicans have stopped watching Saturday Night Live because the NBC gang have no desire to make fun of Democrats. Instead, they openly gush over their Awesomeness. It happened again this week, with a pseudo-TV promo that sounded a little bit like Charlie's Angels. Christian Toto summed it up on Twitter: "Remember how embarrassing the #SNL Hallelujah sketch was? The To Sir With Love sketch? This ...is worse."
New York Times politics editor Patrick Healy led an informal, unprofessional roundtable of the paper's political reporters Matt Flegenheimer, Astead Herndon, and Katie Rogers, who happily passed around liberal stereotypes of conservatives in their year-end wrap-up discussion. Healy joined the list of media elite who just loved Saturday Night Live's anti-Kavanaugh skit: "[Actor Matt] Damon reminded us how Kavanaugh’s aggressive, grievance-driven performance turned the tide for the Republicans against a credible woman, not unlike what Trump’s aggressive, grievance-driven performance did in 2016." Katie Rogers lamented of Trump's rally music: "Elton John is forever ruined for me."
