While many liberal Democrats have responded harshly to President Trump’s proposal to move illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities, there is at least one notable exception in the controversy: Cherilyn Sarkisian, the singer and actress better known as “Cher.” In a Twitter post on Sunday, the liberal celebrity focused her attention on the situation in Los Angeles, where she claimed the city does not adequately provide for the 50,000 homeless people already there and is therefore not prepared to handle a large influx of illegal immigrants, a statement that the Republican occupant of the White House readily agreed with.
On Sunday's Up with David Gura on MSNBC, during a panel discussion of President Donald Trump criticizing U.S. immigration policy during a speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition, host Gura invited Lynn Sweet -- Washington bureau chief of the Chicago Sun-Times -- to complain about Jews who have responded favorably to Trump's rhetoric that was earlier in the segment likened to Nazi Germany.
When conservatives hear President Trump talk about conservatives "reclaiming our nation’s priceless heritage," they hear a reference to the Founders and to the founding documents. When CNN hears it, they hear Hitler and Putin. On Saturday afternoon, CNN anchor Ana Cabrera encouraged CNN analyst Samantha Vinograd -- a former Obama aide and current Biden Institute senior adviser -- to slime Trump with a Holocaust brush:
New York Times Berlin bureau chief Katrin Bennhold, a native of Germany, doesn’t seem in tune with her home country, calling the idea of putting a speed limit on the autobahn a “no-brainer,” one tragically scuttled by the “far right,” and maybe, somehow, Hitler. “Speed Limit? Germans Voting With Lead Feet,” on the front page of Monday’s New York Times. Adolf Hitler makes a cameo.
A recent Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation survey found that 51 percent of American millennials would rather live in a socialist or communist country than in a capitalist country. Only 42 percent prefer the latter. Twenty-five percent of millennials who know who Vladimir Lenin was view him favorably. Lenin was the first premier of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Half of millennials have never heard of Communist Mao Zedong, who ruled China from 1949 to 1959 and was responsible for the deaths of 45 million Chinese people.
Reacting Wednesday night to the bombs sent to CNN and other Democrats, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews offered a bizarre take that invoked how next Wednesday is Halloween, blamed the President without evidence for being responsible for the bombs, and insinuated that he was akin to Adolf Hitler in the 1930s.
Frequent CNN and MSNBC Republican guest Bruce Bartlett decided to go down quite the rabbit hole Tuesday afternoon, opining that Holocaust architect and Nazi leader Adolf Hitler was a better person than President Donald Trump because he served in the (German) military, was supposedly faithful to his wife (which was debatable), and wrote a book on his own.
Joe Scarborough thought he was being so cute. No fewer than six times during his little spiel this on today's Morning Joe, while reading from the US government's WWII psychological profile of Adolf Hitler, Scarborough stressed that he was not intending to refer to anyone else. Joe never uttered the President's name, but coming from this world-class Trump hater, there was no doubt what parallel he wanted viewers to draw.
On Friday's CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon hyped a Washington Post op ed by liberal author Patti Davis -- the daughter of former President Ronald Reagan -- and gave her a forum to compare the Trump administration to Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany. Not mentioned by the CNN host is that it is hardly surprising that Davis would be critical of a right-leaning President since she has a long history of being a liberal activist who was critical of her parents.
They’ve called him a racist, a cult leader, and a foreign agent, but now they’re going the full “Hitler.” After just recently digging up some “professionals” willing to claim that the Trump movement is aimed at taking down democracy, Salon writer Chauncey Devega found a history professor with even less professional self-respect.
WASHINGTON — It has been a pretty good week for Donald Trump. The economy is growing faster than anyone on the left or in the middle or among the Never-Trumpers believed possible. Inflation is low, and employment is at a record high. Moreover, the president and the European Union reached an understanding on trade last week that signals the likely end of a trade war, at least with Europe.
On Monday's Deadline: White House, MSNBC contributor Steve Schmidt railed against President Donald Trump and his supporters as the former Republican-turned-Democrat complained that the Trump "faction" is "trying to impose systematic cruelty upon all the rest of us," and even threw in a Hitler reference as he invoked "Munich circa 1928." Even though the former John McCain campaign strategist last week announced via Twitter that "I renounce my membership in the Republican Party" and pledged to vote for Democrats in the future, he was still credited on screen as a "Republican strategist."
