The hype started way back in February when the New York Times’s Michael Tackett fantasized about Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke’s campaign embodying “a sense of the possible.” The “Turning Texas Blue” dream continued with Late Show host Stephen Colbert, in March, proclaiming: “Texas might be feeling the Beto-mentum, because so far this year, O’Rourke out-raised Ted Cruz by $1.5 million.” The following is just a sampling of the out-of-control media love for Beto O’Rourke and his Quixotic attempt to turn Texas blue.
ABC’s This Week wasted little on Sunday painting the violence of the last few days as the product of the President they couldn’t stand. Host and Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos stated as much at the top of the program. After giving a rundown of the violence of the week, he declared it all occurred “against the backdrop of the ugliest political climate in modern times. At the center, an unapologetically incendiary President untrammeled by traditional norms of civility.”
You know how a girl, when she really likes a boy, will nervously brush her hair back? Check out the move of ABC reporter Paula Faris as she gushes to Beto O'Rourke: "you're a rock star!" When Beto demurs, Faris insists: "no, you really are!" Faris did stop short of asking Beto to autograph her arm, but the adoration was unmistakable.
In the wake of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, a raging liberal mob stormed the Supreme Court building. Some climbed on the statues while others clawed and banded on the massive bronze doors. At first, the liberal media tried to deny the mob existed despite airing footage of it. But judging by ABC’s This Week on Sunday, the liberal media had apparently moved on to calling the right hypocrites for pointing out the mob.
Many in the liberal media scoff when President Trump or others on the right point out that leftists pay protesters to show up and organize. During ABC’s This Week on Sunday, the network’s chief White House correspondent Jon Karl sought to discredit the assertion since the President noted it at a rally the previous night. But he didn’t appear to get the answer he was looking when Vice News D.C. Bureau Chief Shawna Thomas appeared to admit that there were people paid to organize.
During the show trial against Judge Brett Kavanaugh last Thursday, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham (NC) stood out as the Supreme Court nominee’s most ardent defender when he took on the liberal smear machine in a fiery speech that rallied many on the right. That fire was still present during an interview on ABC’s This Week where he took the liberal media head on and called them out for failing to scrutinize Kavanaugh’s accusers.
With absolutely no evidence to speak of and no public testimony from the accuser (so far), the liberal media had found Judge Brett Kavanaugh guilty in their kangaroo court of public opinion. They’ve declaring his confirmation dead in water the calling for him to withdraw himself. During ABC’s This Week, none of their liberals could understand how people could believe Kavanaugh, and lamented that people did.
In the midst of interviewing government officials responsible for coordinating the federal response to Hurricane Florence, all three broadcast Sunday shows harangued those relief workers with questions about President Trump’s recent comments about Hurricane Maria.
During a panel discussion on ABC’s This Week about former President Obama wading into the 2018 midterm campaign, Chief White House Correspondent Jon Karl pointed out that the Democrat didn’t have a good track record when it came to campaigning for members of his party in midterm elections. The liberals on the Sunday show immediately lost it, rushing to defend Obama against the accurate observation.
In the midst of a “powerhouse roundtable” discussion during ABC’s This Week about the Bob Woodward book and the anonymous New York Times op-ed on Sunday, Michelle Goldberg, a columnist for the paper, lashed out at Trump administration officials and declared they should be ashamed that they work for President Trump.
While there were some overtly political statements targeting President Trump at the memorial service for Senator John McCain at the National Cathedral on Saturday, much more of the service was focused on McCain’s life. And since the liberal media is the liberal media, they wanted to opine ad nauseam about how President Trump wasn’t invited. But during Sunday’s This Week, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie scolded his colleagues for putting the focus on Trump instead of McCain.
On Sunday, the political panel on ABC’s This Week was eager for Democrats to win control of the House of Representatives in November’s midterm elections so that liberal lawmakers could launch numerous investigations into the Trump administration. Moderator George Stephanopoulos sparked off the discussion by declaring: “If the president’s concerned about self-preservation, he better do well in the midterms. Republicans better do well.”
