On Friday’s edition of New Day co-host John Berman had Congressman Matt Gaetz (R) of Florida on to ask him about his thoughts on the Inspector General’s Report regarding the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton e-mail probe. In the interview, Berman was quick to paint the failed 2016 Democratic nominee as the victim of the FBI’s actions while making excuses for the bias against the Trump campaign.
Stephen Colbert not surprisingly has attempted to use his Catholic faith to make a political point, and unbeknownst to him, he failed at it. He was referring to the incidents at the border involving illegal immigrants and their children. Colbert called attention to how AG Jeff Sessions defended the government’s actions at the border with a quote from Romans.
On Friday's Velshi and Ruhle show on MSNBC, host Ali Velshi joined in the liberal news network's recent spate of Bible-thumping to justify left-wing policy as he actually took out a large Christian Bible and read from it on camera. He also voiced agreement with his guest, Father James Martin, as the Jesuit priest declared that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is "weaponizing the Gospels and the Bible" against illegal immigrants.
Ireland probably thought cultural suicide would bring it peace. But, having shuffled off this mortal coil, the Emerald Isle’s sleep of death is not going to be terribly restful. Eire has opened the Hellmouth of social liberalism. Even as Irish and international progressives are celebrating the newly minted right to snuff out babies in the womb ...
Thursday on CNN's Cuomo Prime Time, former Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta was invited by host Chris Cuomo to talk about the Inspector General’s Report released earlier that day. Podesta took the opportunity to argue that Hillary Clinton was the real victim.
Appearing on CNN shows Thursday night and Friday morning, law enforcement analyst and former FBI Supervisory Special Agent James Gagliano slammed former FBI Director James Comey in context of the Justice Department’s IG report for having been “the least equipped lifeguard” to lead the FBI who “created a culture around him of young, callow, inexperienced agents.”
On Friday, Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti gave his 82nd CNN inteview, in which he attempted to dispel criticism that he was on television too frequently. He appeared on New Day to respond to a restraining order filed by Trump lawyer Michael Cohen that asked a judge to stop his frequent television appearances, calling them prejudicial to a fair trial. “We're about to find out whether the media and press really believes in the First Amendment, whether they think that people should be gagged,” Avenatti remarked.
Democrats love protecting children and invoking a higher power, but only when it benefits them politically. On All In with Chris Hayes Thursday, former U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer cited religion, sin, and children to blast the Trump administration’s immigration policy.
ABC on Friday breathlessly reported on the “bombshell” Inspector General report, but the network skipped the revelation that an FBI agent vowed to “stop” Donald Trump’s 2016 victory. Over on NBC, Chuck Todd insisted that the real victim of all of this was Hillary Clinton.
Now even innocent children’s play is politicized by the liberal media. Univision, the Spanish-language media giant that aspires to be a leader of the liberal media pack, illustrated the problem when it ginned up the “outrage” over little Prince George playing with a water pistol during a family outing to watch one of his Dad’s polo matches.
Season two of NBC’s comedy Marlon premiered Thursday evening with two back-to-back episodes, both of which took digs at esteemed Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson, portraying him as a “sellout” and the polar opposite of hero Martin Luther King. Two other famous, black conservatives were also painted as sellouts and anti-heroes: former Apprentice star and Trump administration staffer Omarosa Manigault and actress Stacey Dash.
Mike Brest at the Daily Caller reported former FBI director James Comey told the Inspector General he couldn't figure out why Hillary Clinton's emails would end up on Anthony Weiner's computer. “I don’t know that I knew that [Weiner] was married to Huma Abedin at the time.” As dumb as this sounds, this is not a new spin for Comey. He also uncorked this I'm-seriously-uninformed line on NPR's Fresh Air and NBC's Meet the Press.
Should the Trump administration interact with religious leaders? It depends. New York Times' Catie Edmondson went hard against Trump’s supposed anti-Muslim (as opposed to anti-Islamic terrorism) animus in “As Trump Woos Middle Eastern Leaders, Muslim Americans Feel Scorned.” Yet the Times also criticized the Trump administration for meeting with Christians.
During an overwrought panel discussion on Friday’s MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle, former Barack Obama campaign staffer Stephanie Cutter and political analyst Michael Steele took turns comparing illegal immigrant detention centers along the U.S. southern border to Nazi death camps.
You can’t be friends with people who disagree with you about politics. At least that’s what Salon wants you to think. Salon political staff writer Chauncey Devega commands you to cut Trump supporters completely out of your life, saying that, “If you have friends or relatives who support Donald Trump you should confront them. Explain to them that they are complicit with Trump's cruelty and sadism.”
