Following President Trump’s meeting with Russia President Vladimir Putin last Monday, ABC was the first broadcast network to boost hysterical cries of “treason” from loony leftists. During Sunday’s This Week, the network appeared to be getting their employees fitted for their tinfoil hats as they kicked up the lunacy with incessant suggestions that the President was under the direct control of Russia.
In a truly ridiculous line of questions during ABC’s This Week on Sunday, fill-in host and White House correspondent Jon Karl badgered National Security Adviser John Bolton about President Trump’s combative relationship with the press and whether it helped Russian President Vladimir Putin crackdown on reporters there.
On Sunday, Washington Post “conservative” George Will won the admiration of his liberal peers when he penned a column calling for the Republican Party to lose control Congress. His anti-Republican screed was featured on CNN’s Inside Politics and ABC’s This Week. But on NBC’s Meet the Press, moderator Chuck Todd put it up for a panel discussion during the show’s “End Game” segment.
Former CIA Director Michael Hayden appeared on ABC's This Week on Sunday. Hayden criticized President Donald Trump's behavior during the on-off-on North Korean negotiations, and claimed Trump is "trying to delegitimize the Mueller investigation, the FBI, (and) the Department of Justice." Host Martha Raddatz then asked about statements made in a new book and on TV this past week by former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who wants the public to believe that Russian influence swung the 2016 presidential election to Trump. If Raddatz expected Hayden to confirm Clapper's assessment — Why else would someone who couldn't hold back her tears on Election Night 2016 ask about it? — he forcefully disappointed her.
NBC wasn’t the only network news outlet to spout liberal hyperbole about national anthem supporters and President Trump’s motives. During Sunday’s This Week, Washington Post national correspondent Wesley Lowery joined ABC’s “powerhouse” roundtable where he claimed as fact that Trump’s goal in harping on the NFL protestors was “silence” minorities who were protesting police brutality. Of course, the rest of the panel agreed and asserted people didn’t understand what was going on.
For the liberal media, the only real problem for America when came to gun violence was that pesky Second Amendment and your access to firearms. And while they talked a good game about an “all of the above” solution, their only goal was to restrict your rights. A grade-A example of this kind of attitude was on display Sunday during ABC’s This Week, where host George Stephanopoulos grilled Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick about gun control for his state while ignoring Patrick’s point regarding the devaluation of life by our culture.
Despite all the good news for America this week, like the freeing of American hostages and the low unemployment rate AND the capture ISIS leaders, the ABC panel on Sunday’s This Week was huffing about President Trump ending the Iran nuclear deal. The bitter panelists were up in arms and were making predictions of just more war on the horizon. One even claimed the Trump administration was setting us up for the Iraq War 2.0.
In a stunning moment of candor from ABC host George Stephanopoulos during Sunday’s This Week, the longtime Clinton flack lamented the media coverage Hillary Clinton received during the 2016 election. During the “powerhouse roundtable” discussion analyzing the media’s role in 2016 (yes, they’re still hung up on it), he was put off how media equalized Clinton and Donald Trump when it came to their wrongdoings.
White House Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert appeared on ABC’s This Week on Sunday to discuss President Trump’s plans for illegal immigration following his order to move National Guard troops to the border. Fill-in host Martha Raddatz deployed the classic liberal media tactics such as selectively picking data points and placing false blame in an effort to trip up her guest. But Bossert held her off and schooled her on the issues.
On Sunday, ABC’s This Week With George Stephanopoulos served up a heavy dose of “blue wave” rhetoric, featuring a segment dedicated to the purported Democratic surge, an interview with a Democratic Senator from a red state, and a Republican strategist who had already decided that the GOP would be losing the House in 2018 “by 40 or 50 seats.”
It’s been nine days since Hillary Clinton, on a visit to India, disparaged the voters who elected Donald Trump as President in 2016. This weekend, some Democrats openly broke with Clinton over the comments, while the ex-candidate herself felt the need to engage in a bit of backpedaling in a Facebook message posted Saturday afternoon. Given the blowback, you’d imagine that the broadcast networks would have found at least a few moments for this controversy. You’d be wrong.
In what really could only be described as a completely bonkers conspiracy theory, The Nation magazine editor Katrina vanden Heuvel suggested Sunday that Rex Tillerson was fired from the secretary of state position because his replacement was funded by the Koch brothers and because the administration wanted a war with Iran. If you’re confused, don’t worry, the rest of the liberal panel on ABC’s This Week didn’t seem to be able to follow her convoluted mess either.
