Friday night on Fox's Last Man Standing, the Baxters wrung in the Christmas season reminding us what is most important this holiday season. In the episode, “The Gift of the Mike Guy,” the family gathered together to decorate the tree--even Eve (Kaitlyn Dever) came home; however, the most heartwarming thing about this episode was the message they gave about veterans. In addition to reminding us to appreciate the men and women sacrificing so much, including their Christmas for our country, Mike (Tim Allen) gave back in a big way.
MSNBC host Joy Reid and guest Elie Mystal on Saturday openly connived about the best way to "get to" Trump. They concluded that it would be to "go after" Ivanka. Gloated Mystal: "this is the first time that we have Ivanka . . . in the crosshairs . . . The only way we're really going to get to Trump is if you go after his kids . . . And this [going after Ivanka] could be the way to do it."
On New Day Saturday, as CNN continued to cover the story of an illegal immigrant whose seven-year-old daughter died possibly of dehydration after he illegally transported her across the desert, the show gave an unchallenged forum to liberal activist to complain about the Trump administration's handling of illegal immigration as if such deaths were the government's fault.
Wanna distract public attention from your school district's lousy academic ratings? Shift the topic to Colin Kaepernick by writing a letter to the Washington Redskins imploring them to give him a tryout! And say you're teaching your students valuable lessons in the process. That's the thinking of seven members of the Prince George’s County, Maryland school board who seem more concerned with social justice than academics.
On Friday's The Last Word show, MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell gave California Democratic Rep. Norma Torres an unchallenged forum to claim that the Trump administration has "murdered" illegal immigrant children as the two discussed the recent death of a seven-year-old girl after she was transported across the desert illegally by her father. Additionally, O'Donnell accused the administration of destroying water supplies left in the desert to help illegals even though Border Patrol released a statement condemning agents who were caught on film destroying water in an incident believed to have happened during the Obama administration.
Talk-radio host and friend Chris Plante recently made an excellent point about Hollywood. As horrible new revelations of sexual misbehavior surface about CBS CEO Les Moonves, it’s highly unlikely anyone’s going to make a movie about him, or about Matt Lauer, or about Charlie Rose, and so on. But there are two fictional projects supposedly based on (and a new documentary about) the late Fox News boss Roger Ailes.
On Friday's Andrea Mitchell Reports, host Mitchell asserted that Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was "blaming the victim" when she correctly warned that it is very dangerous to cross the desert illegally in reaction to recent news of a child dying possibly of dehydration after her father crossed the desert illegally from Mexico. Correspondent Jacob Soboroff suggested that the Trump administration is "forcing" illegals to cross under dangerous circumstances through the desert because of long wait times at legal ports of entry.
The panelists on Friday morning’s edition of CNN’s New Day program took advantage of their last chance of the week to slam their favorite target -- Donald Trump -- even going so far as to give former White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart a chance to try to hammer the final nails into the Republican president’s coffin. Lockhart, who served in Democratic President Bill Clinton’s administration for two years, took obvious delight in casting Trump’s troubles in the darkest light possible by questioning if the president was ever legitimately elected.
The New York Times co-hosted a “Cities for Tomorrow” conference in New Orleans that promised a wide-ranging discussion including “cultural and sports figures.” One result was a Thursday story about the National Basketball Association congratulating itself on its “woke” politics and the Times cheering them on, while mocking the NFL’s treatment of Colin Kaepernick, in “N.B.A. Voices -- A league that lets players speak out.” But the paper’s embrace of the NBA is pretty hypocritical, given its part treatment of athletes who make conservative gestures. Reporter Talya Minsberg celebrated the left-wing concept of “wokeness” at length, while lamenting the NFL's treatment of Colin Kaepernick.
During Thursday’s edition of The Ingraham Angle, host Laura Ingraham highlighted the White House’s announcement of a “bold plan to change the lives in America of some of our poorest citizens, those who live in the most distressed and sometimes the most dangerous neighborhoods,” describing the announcement as “a scene you likely did not see on one of your local or national newscasts” because they did not bother to cover it.
On Don Lemon's show CNN Tonight on Wednesday, liberal analyst Joan Walsh slammed First Lady Melania Trump for "whining" in a Sean Hannity interview about how the media mangles history on this presidency. On Thursday's The Five on Fox News, Greg Gutfeld let Walsh have it: "It's very interesting that feminists are all about leaning in -- #MeToo, you go, girl -- until you disagree with them. And then they're -- they're as chauvinistic and sexist as the next guy."
ABC started off Friday’s Good Morning America playing clips from their exclusive interview with President Trump’s ex-lawyer Michael Cohen, who was sentenced to three years in prison this week for lying to Congress about Trump’s business dealings with Russia and for directing hush money payments to Trump’s alleged former mistresses Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, before the 2016 election.
Despite his dishonest reputation, Cohen was treated like a hero by ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos, who praised him for his “honesty” while inviting him to bash the president.
On Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski apologizes for having called Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, on Wednesday's show, a "butt boy." But whereas she apologizes "especially to the LGBT community and to my colleagues," Brzezinski doesn't apologize . . . to Mike Pompeo.
On Monday night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers on NBC, his staff writer Jenny Hagel uncorked a commentary attacking Pope Francis as a fountain of “hate speech.” In a new book-length interview titled The Strength of a Vocation, the Pope said the Catholic Church shouldn’t be scandalized by sexually active (and activist) homosexual priests. It’s not exactly a new stand for Popes, but this one was supposed to be "cool."
How shallow are liberal journalists? Ted Cruz's new beard looks really good and Esquire managing editor Ben Boskovich is upset about that. See, he finds it easier to hate the clean-shaven Cruz and now that the Texas senator is looking better in his opinion, that has thrown Boskovich for a loop.
