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.”
Shortly before a white supremacist rally was to be held outside the White House, ABC’s Good Morning America touted the ramblings of disgraced former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman. In her new book, ironically called Unhinged, she described the President as a “racist, bigot, and misogynist,” so, of course, the liberal media were enthralled. So much show that they touted a TMZ video of her suggesting President Trump wanted a “race war”.
We’re more than halfway through the summer and with the midterm elections drawing closer, the liberal media have been desperate to continue the Democratic Party’s “blue wave” narrative despite a booming economy and improving poll numbers. And during Sunday’s This Week on ABC, host Martha Raddatz wondered how the Democrats planned to “counter” the voters who approved of the conservative things President Trump had done for the country.
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.
