After CNN historian David Brinkley compared President Trump on Thursday to “demagogues” like Huey Long and George Wallace, CNN global affairs analyst and Washington Post columnist Max Boot called Trump a demagogue on Friday’s CNN Tonight and accused him of “bringing fascism to America,” an idea that even far-left CNN political commentator Van Jones pushed back on.
Members of the liberal media had epic meltdowns following Attorney General William Barr’s Wednesday admission he was looking into how the Trump campaign was spied on in 2016. Despite the fact former FBI Director James Comey admitted the campaign was surveilled, ABC host George Stephanopoulos insisted that it somehow wasn’t really “spying”, during Sunday’s This Week. But the Clinton lackey was swiftly schooled by former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
CNN’s Poppy Harlow got her talking points confused on Monday morning and accidentally ended up making an argument that supported President Trump's case for closing the southern border.
With nearly the entire Democratic 2020 field sprinting to be the closest to socialism without using the label, folks in the liberal media were busy trying to spin their radical policy positions as something palatable. A great example of this occurred during ABC’s This Week on Sunday, when two panelists tried to suggest that it was Republicans who were the radical ones with Democrats supposedly as the centrists.
During Saturday’s edition of S.E. Cupp Unfiltered, the eponymous host gloated about President Trump’s decision to “cave” to the Democrats as she opened her show. She later had some unusual analysis when it came to the border wall, arguing that a handful of President Trump’s supporters have a “sexual fetish” for a wall on the southern border with Mexico.
CNN Newsroom presented a predictable reaction to President Trump’s Saturday afternoon remarks that offered a compromise to Democrats on immigration and government shutdown, blasting Trump’s speech as “inflammatory” filled with “misinformation and scare-mongering tactics” trying to still make “Trump’s little racist wall” happen.
Monday on CNN’s New Day, CNN political analyst and USA Today columnist Kirsten Powers battled it out with fellow CNN analyst and Republican strategist Alice Stewart over how women reacted to the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Host Erica Hill didn’t even pretend to be giving a fair, unbiased question to her guests, asking, “What message does the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh send to women?”
On Thursday's CNN Tonight, the show not only repeated the debunked myth that the Trump administration treats illegal immigrant children worse than the Obama administration did, but even one of CNN's right-leaning analysts added to the media myth that legal asylum seekers have their children separated from them without making the distinction that those who enter the country legally typically are not separated. The liberal news network notably ignored DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen's trip to Guatemala earlier this week in which she implored asylum seekers to enter the U.S. through legal ports of entry so that they receive better treatment, rather than cross the border illegally.
On Monday's CNN Tonight, liberal CNN political commentator Angela Rye had a meltdown and began ranting after conservative CNN contributor Alice Stewart defended the NRA against attacks at the Oscars. After Stewart persisted in defending the pro-gun group, Rye shouted: "Like, stop! Just stop! Like, Alice, I like you as a person, but this is crazy! Stop! When host Don Lemon jumped in to respond, he claimed that the NRA only represents a small portion of the population and asserted that "they're holding the rest of us hostage."
On Wednesday’s CNN Tonight, the show opened itself up to some well-deserved mockery by again questioning the health of President Trump and used his Jerusalem speech to argue that he’s “not in perfect health” and could be starting to slur his words. “New Tonight; Did President Trump Slur His Speech,” the snarky CNN chyron read to the delight of faux Republicans, liberals, and Resistance followers everywhere.
Friday morning, the networks and cable news were rightly aghast at the allegations that were published yesterday afternoon against Alabama Republican senatorial candidate Roy Moore, that he had molested a 14-year-old girl decades ago. While Moore fervently denied this claim, the media immediately seized upon the story without a hint of reservation, automatically condemning anyone on the right who took the charge seriously but still urged caution until more is known.
On Saturday night, Senator Mary Landrieu (D-La.) lost her bid for reelection to Congressman Bill Cassidy (R-La.) by nearly 12 points and some liberals decided to blame her defeat on white racists who hate President Obama. Appearing on MSNBC’s The Rundown with Jose Diaz-Balart on Monday morning, Aisha Moodie-Mills of the Center for American Progress insisted that “the reality, and every single poll shows this, is that Democrats have completely lost the south because white people are running away from Barack Obama and this African-American man who is occupying the White House.”
