It’s hard serving two masters, especially if both of them are at each other’s throats and the one you’re more partial to is inflicting human rights violations on the one you need to keep your happy, Mickey Mouse PR appearance alive. That’s the predicament Disney is in after the star of its newest live action remake is being blasted for her support of the pro-Beijing authoritarians accused of bludgeoning pro-democratic Hong Kong protestors.
It's been a bad week for CNN. Hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon both embroiled in their own scandals, one even caught on camera. Now CNN political analyst April Ryan is in hot water after a local journalist claims he was assaulted by Ryan’s bodyguard while covering an event she was speaking at, earlier this month.
Finally, a lefty who doesn’t blame guns for shootings. No, Indian American activist and former Democratic congressional candidate for Colorado Saira Rao knows what’s really going on: “whiteness — ALL WHITENESS — is killing us.” Rao shared her conclusion in an August 12 tweet. The mass shootings by white males in Dayton and El Paso -- combined with her tolerant, sunny liberalism -- convinced the former candidate that America needs a campaign for “ending whiteness.”
Appearing on the Monday edition of the Fox Business Network’s Varney & Co., Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell tore into Twitter for being “like two-year-olds” with their attempt to lock Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign account for sharing video of angry, far-left protesters last week outside his home threatening to inflict fatal harm on the Kentucky Republican.
Twitter’s initial decision to suspend the official campaign account of Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) caused a massive boycott of the site’s advertising platform from the GOP.

Apparently there’s no room for President Donald Trump in the safe space that comedian Leslie Jones lives in. The outspoken leftwing SNL star and stand up comic told late night host Jimmy Kimmel that Trump “is banned from my life.” Jones, one of the stars of the failure that was 2016’s all female Gostbusters reboot, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to discuss her new Netflix stand up special.
Twitter’s war against conservatives and Republicans has some collateral damage — the company’s advertising business. Twitter blocked the campaign account for Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) account from posting on August 7. The platform claimed that in posting a video showing the violent threats aimed at McConnell, Team Mitch violated Twitter policy on violence and harassment. Republicans did the only thing left to do: they stopped spending money on Twitter ads until further notice.
Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferers found out in shock and horror that the major investor in their favorite health and fitness companies is a Trump supporter. Oh heavens, WHY? Leftwing celebrities Billy Eichner and Chrissy Teigen began a boycott of companies Equinox and SoulCycle after hearing the news that billionaire investor Stephen Ross is throwing a “mega-fundraiser” for President Donald J. Trump.
Twitter is now acting like a dictatorship that allows itself to meddle in political campaigns and ban conservatives for exposing the violent left. So it should come as no surprise that the official campaign Twitter account for Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was suspended for sharing a video of the violent threats being made against the senator.
On Tuesday night, failed McCain/Palin campaign official, former Republican, and MSNBC’s Deadline: White House host Nicolle Wallace apologized for claiming during Monday’s show that President Donald Trump has been “talking about exterminating Latinos.” Wallace’s comments were first flagged by our very own contributing writer Mark Finkelstein.
Pop music diva Mariah Carey made Twitter waves Monday with a photo of the singer posing with America’s favorite former first couple, the Clintons, complete with a passive aggressive caption aimed at disparaging President Trump.
