CNN really loves anti-Trump Republicans, so who better to bring on to discuss the Republican rebuke of President Trump, than their most vocal Never Trumper? Host Brooke Baldwin welcomed Ana Navarro’s hot take in the 3pm EST hour Thursday after 12 Republicans sided with Democrats in blocking President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the border. Predictably, Navarro only had nice things to say about the “symbolic” rebellion from the right, gushing that even if they lost their seats in the future that it was the right step to take.
The hosts of The View Friday were unanimously angry about ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s 47-month-long sentencing by a judge Thursday, calling it “immoral” “shameful” and wishing that he’d “rot in jail for the rest of his life.” Host Joy Behar even shared her own conspiracy theories that the judge was a Trump supporter and wondered if Mitch McConnell had something to do with it.
Now that the midterm elections of 2018 are behind us, CNN has made an interesting choice when hiring a new political commentator: Andrew Gillum, the former mayor of Tallahassee who lost a tight race for Florida governor to Republican Ron DeSantis in November. The selection is made all the more curious since the Florida Commission on Ethics has found Gillum as having "probable cause" regarding five counts of ethics violations for allegedly accepting gifts while traveling with lobbyists. That investigation is said to be “moving forward.”
The mood at ABC’s The View alternated between sheer glee over Roger Stone’s arrest Friday morning, and anger over the government shutdown. Friday co-host Ana Navarro gushed that furloughed workers should essentially dine and dash at Trump property hotels to show their disgust for the administration.
The liberal media had been left reeling after a weekend of spreading misinformation and smears against a group of innocent Catholic high school students who were being harassed in front of the Lincoln Memorial. At the start of the Monday’ edition of his show, on Fox News Channel, Tucker Carlson shamed those who jumped to the conclusions that fit into their narrative. Naming names, Carlson also called out those on the right who did the same thing.
Left-wing actor and activist Bradley Whitford, whose most famous for his role on The West Wing, appeared on ABC’s The View Friday to promote his newest project but the hosts mainly wanted him to rant about the "real" national emergency being gun violence, instead of illegal immigration.
Reminder: Trump Derangement Syndrome is very real and a terrible affliction that rots the patient’s brain. A particularly advanced case was on full display during Cuomo Prime Time following President Trump’s address on border security. According to two afflicted patients, the Trump administration approached the media on Monday to request airtime on Tuesday in order to distract from news about Paul Manafort that... hadn’t even happened yet? Okay then.
This is what the liberal media not being able to control the narrative and what you, the public, know and don’t know. On Thursday afternoon, CNN’s The Lead threw a full-blown conniption after President Donald Trump appeared and then took no questions at a last-minute White House Press Briefing alongside National Border Patrol Council members. Fill-in host Brianna Keilar immediately seemed bewildered, noting that the President was “pulling the spotlight back to the White House and to his point of view, but it's — he didn't even take questions.”
In 2018 there was a torrent of ugliness directed at conservatives. Vice President Mike Pence was disgustingly derided as a “dangerous” Christian with a “mental illness” on ABC’s The View. When White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was hounded by leftist activists at a Virginia restaurant, The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin praised them as she condemned: “Sarah Huckabee has no right to live a life of no fuss, no muss, after lying to the press.”
Friday at the Hot Topics table, the hosts of The View argued with Utah Republican, Rep. Mia Love, pressuring her to call President Trump a racist, after he blamed her critical stance towards him as the reason why she lost to her Democrat challenger in the midterm elections. Love didn’t fold under the pressure from the liberal hosts, instead calling out Democrats for targeting her because she is a black, female Republican.
Friday the Hot Topics table got heated on The View, as Republican co-host Meghan McCain found a partner in Abby Huntsman in combating their liberal co-hosts’ arguments on Trump's dealings with Russia.
Friday on The View, the hosts slammed conservatives as racists that were “obsessed” with the media’s favorite Democrat socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. While they brought up the topic because of a stupid tweet from a conservative writer which mocked Cortez for her clothing choices, they used that tweet to accuse the entire conservative movement of having a racist agenda and obsession with the new congresswoman.
