We’re less than two months into 2020, and some Democratic presidential hopefuls have already “gone ugly,” especially in the behind-the-scenes conflict between former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and former President Barack Obama. A 30-second advertisement implying that Bloomberg and Obama are “close allies” has drawn the ire of officials in “Obamaworld” who describe the campaign as an “incredible turnoff.”
Remember when the old “Christmas” song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” experienced its own #Metoo reckoning for being what many feminists considered a giant innuendo for sexual assault? Yeah, the world was saved that day. Though for those people who would still like to enjoy that number without upsetting the PC applecart, John Legend has recorded a new feminist version of the song, that yes, emphasizes consent and gives a nod to “reproductive rights.”
Musician John Legend and his model wife, Chrissey Teigen, claim they don’t like Donald Trump. No surprise there. So how come they’re lending their images and words to a Vanity Fair cover story that’s really about Trump? POTUS, as the saying goes, lives rent-free in a lot of liberal heads, but somehow he got this A-list entertainment couple and a big, glossy magazine to do a spread and feature article that is almost entirely a reaction to him. Well done, Mr. President.
With a Hollywood career exclusively marked by directing raunchy comedies, it is a bit strange to consider that director Todd Phillips is about to make his biggest mark with a bloody, rated-R crime drama. It’s quite the genre change, one that Phillips attributes to being tired of “woke culture.”
It has long been known that liberals hold the television show "The West Wing" in a high esteem that feeds into their fantasies, especially in times where cold reality has not exactly gone as they (and creator Aaron Sorkin) would have hoped. And this fantasy will only be intensified since this is the twentieth anniversary of the show's premiere. Another reason for liberals to fantasize ever more deeply in the parallel liberal world of "The West Wing" is obviously due to the the one they consider to be the intruder in the real world West Wing, President Donald Trump.
If nothing else, the sordid story of Jeffrey Epstein has done some good by exposing possible corruption in academia, science, and Big Tech. Business Insider wrote that LinkedIn founder and Microsoft board member Reid Hoffman is the latest in a long list of “powerful figures attracting scrutiny for their connections to now-deceased sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.”
Vanity Fair is a reliable glossy partner with the Democratic establishment. Take the latest from Peter Hamby, who covered politics for CNN from 2005 to 2015 before scoring a gig doing news for the youngsters at Snapchat. His latest article carried a headling full of angst: “'Are We Really Going to Have a Gaffe-Fest Over Joe Biden?': How Clickbait and Outrage Porn Are Hurting Readers—and Elevating Trump."
A study from Cornell University claims YouTube channels that feature prominent conservative figures are “infecting” users with alt-right beliefs. “Auditing Radicalization Pathways on YouTube,” written by five academics, concluded that “channels in the Intellectual Dark Web (IDW) and the Alt-lite would be gateways to fringe far right ideology.” The study, released August 22, linked The Daily Wire founder Ben Shapiro, Dr. Jordan Peterson, comedian and host Joe Rogan, and host Dave Rubin to fringe racist figures like Richard Spencer and Jared Taylor.
It's pretty much a done deal. President Donald Trump's chances of re-election are almost non-existent. In fact for him to win the 2020 election "might take an act of God." So declared T.A. Frank in Wednesday's Vanity Fair. And if Frank's smug certainty in prognosticating the outcome of the next election sounds familiar, he was just as certain of Trump's 2016 election loss in October of that year.
“Republican politics are returning America to a past where only the wealthy have access to safe, legal abortion,” Vanity Fair asserted in an article about abortion concierge services published Wednesday, titled “Is This the Trumpian Future of Abortion in America?”
Were you able to sit through all seven episodes of Showtime's "The Loudest Voice" about Roger Ailes without falling asleep? Well, good news! This December a movie will be released on the exact same subject called "Bombshell." Not only will it cover the same ground again, but we can be pretty sure that it will repeat the slam on Fox News for daring to not fall in line with the strictly liberal agenda that has been tightly embraced by much of the rest of the media.
Women’s fashion magazine Vanity Fair seems hell-bent on attacking the First Daughter any chance they get. Just a few days after slamming her for being complicit in the shootings, they accused her of being a white supremacist in this hysterical article which makes less sense than a Cher tweet. The magazine’s Rachel Dodes, an apparent self-loathing white liberal, entitled her hit piece, “The Unbearable Whiteness of Being Ivanka Trump,” and sneered about how “white” Ivanka was a whopping ten times in the relatively short article.
