Democrats in Congress are intent on using outrage against the Trump administration's immigration policies, rather than substantive action, to rally their electorate. On Tuesday, during a three-hour block of immigration coverage on MSNBC, it was clear the media was set on helping them do so.
On Thursday’s The View, the hosts talked with Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon, who is challenging Andrew Cuomo for his seat in New York’s gubernatorial race. The radical activist only got softball questions from the friendly hosts, despite saying some pretty controversial things at the table.
Nothing to see here. All three networks on Wednesday night and Thursday morning skipped actor Peter Fonda’s vile attack on Donald Trump’s 12-year-old son Barron. Despite nine and a half hours of available air time, ABC, CBS and NBC avoided discussing the celebrity’s ugly threat that Barron be placed in a cage with pedophiles.
Ronald Reagan finally gets the movie he deserves. After several Hollywood movies putting the 40th President in a negative light, Dennis Quaid is slated to play Reagan in summer of 2019. Producers call Ronald Reagan: The Movie “a journey of a lifetime, the all-American story of the boy from Dixon, Illinois, who grew up to be president and changed a nation and the world.”
It’s always tragic when fictional characters, loved by millions of different people, are morphed into political mouthpieces. Well get ready for heartbreak, because DC Comics has taken it upon itself to turn America’s superhero, THE Superman, into a liberal advocate for refugee rights.
President Trump signing an executive order on Wednesday to stop the separation of illegal immigrant families at the border was greeted Thursday morning by broadcast networks and cable news channels hailing the latest cover of Time magazine, which savaged Trump by using an altered image to portray him as indifferent to a crying young child.
As the media have been fixated all week on the Trump administration strictly enforcing immigration laws and, as required by law, separating illegal immigrant parents from children during prosecutions, MSNBC's Jacob Soboroff delivered a gem that deserves a place in the annals of "Blame America First" as he actually blamed the U.S. for Central America's crime problems with MS-13 and other gangs.
While appearing as a guest on ABC’s The View program on Tuesday, actor/director Kevin Costner was asked by liberal co-host Joy Behar to share his thoughts on the practice of separating immigrant children from their parents after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally. After stumbling for a moment, Costner replied: “I'm not recognizing America right now. I don't recognize its voice.” That comment drew applause from the studio audience, and he then added: “We can be about more, and right now we're acting really small.”
Oh look, an unfunny comedian expressed her political views with vulgar language against a member of the Trump family. It seems like an everyday occurance. At this point should we even be surprised? Ivanka Trump thanked her father for “taking critical action ending family separation at our border” via a tweet. Wanda Sykes, a comedian/actor took to twitter to insult Ivanka saying:
Defying credibility, The Hollywood Reporter's Marisa Guthrie today tries to make a case that ESPN is more conservative than you think. In her story, "ESPN's Internal Political Divide: Bristol Tradition vs. 'Woke' Reformers," she claims much of the leadership in Bristol, Conn., is conservative, though the "independent" network is often characterized as a pinko lefty operation.
MSNBC, also known as the George Soros News Network, has continued to go off the deep end when discussing the Trump Administration's policy of enforcing existing immigration laws. During Tuesday's edition of MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle, panelist Mark Thompson compared President Trump to the Roman emperor Nero, accusing him of "burning America up." NPR Latino USA host Maria Hinojosa dropped the usual Holocaust analogies.
Part 5 (otherwise known as season 3, part 1) of The Ranch, starring Ashton Kutcher, was released June 15 on Netflix and our heroes just found out that the gas pipeline, which was going to bring them some much-needed financial relief, has been canceled thanks to protesters. When Rooster meets one of the protesters in a bar, he tells her she "fucked up a lot of peoples' lives with that protest" and realizes that is the one thing that could stop him from hitting on an attractive woman.
In the three weeks since vulgar comedian, Samantha Bee disgustingly described Ivanka Trump as a “feckless c**t” who needed to seduce her father for immigration reform, TBS’s Full Frontal has seen a dramatic drop off in corporate advertisers willing to throw their financial support behind the TV-MA rated program. Although, there was a slight bump during June 20’s episode where they picked up three additional non-Turner-owned promos over the previous week.
Ryan Saavedra at the Daily Wire captured an instructional moment on CNN on Wednesday afternoon. Anchor Brooke Baldwin was interviewing Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis., no relation) on the separation of illegal-immigrant families at the border. The Senator from Wisconsin was on a tear, that the Trump zero-tolerance policy was "something that I think violated all American values. It was an un-American activity." Then the CNN host asked her if she felt that way four years ago under Obama. The senator just tap-danced around the question.
With the stroke of a pen, President Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday that would officially end the policy of separating parents and children who come across the southern border illegally. It’s what many on the right and left wanted to see happen, but for the liberal media it wasn’t enough, as CBS anchor Jeff Glor demonstrated by opining about how Trump was trying to “put out a big political fire with a few drops of ink.”
