Once again, CW’s Black Lightning is playing politics. First the series claimed the police are straight-up murdering black kids, and now they're going after George W. Bush. And here I thought Trump jokes were getting old!
Tuesday on Good Morning America, Nightline anchor JuJu Chang profiled former Obama White House photographer Pete Souza for his newest book, entitled Shade, and about his snarky photo captions bashing President Trump on Instagram. Chang opened her report by calling the 63-year-old photographer a “very unlikely Instagram superstar” whose made a name for himself on social media by replying to President Trump’s tweets with sarcastic comments. “It's earned him the moniker, ‘the King of Shade,’” Chang gushed.
I sat through all ten episodes of the second season of Netflix’s Big Mouth, an animated adult sitcom, so you don't have to and all I can say is, that is five hours I’ll never get back. You're welcome. I honestly don’t know why this series was brought back for another season unless it was to simply appease the liberal universe with their 30-minute ode to Planned Parenthood.
Just when it seemed that Bill and Hillary Clinton had finally left the national stage, along comes a play by a liberal producer that examines an “American dynasty in crisis” about a “power couple who have been a prominent part of the American political landscape for the past quarter-century.” Hillary and Clinton will debut on Broadway next spring and will star actors Laurie Metcalf and John Lithgow in the title roles while exploring potential behind-the-scenes developments of the 2008 Democratic presidential primary in New Hampshire.
On Monday's MSNBC Live, Jason Johnson ignored the established history that President Barack Obama's adminstration housed illegal immigrant children in cage-like structures while they were being processed, as the MSNBC political contributor asserted that the practice is one of the ways the Trump administration is practicing "white nationalism."
Between Monday and Tuesday, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell devoted two segments on her afternoon show to giving an unchallenged forum to environmental activists promoting the preferred liberal view that global warming is caused by humans and is making hurricane seasons worse, as Democratic Governor Jerry Brown appeared on Monday's show and former Vice President Al Gore on Tuesday.
On Thursday's New Day, CNN misleadingly reported a new version of a similar story from earlier this year which suggested that the Trump administration had incompetently "lost" about 1,500 illegal immigrant children who had been in HHS custody. But the first version of the story had already been debunked earlier this year, and, on Thursday's show, CNN reporter Tal Kopen admitted that the story was not as bad as hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman initially made it sound.
On Friday's Real Time show, HBO host Bill Maher not only complained about what he called "patriotic bulls***" at national sporting events, but he also lauded former Secretary of State John Kerry as someone who "told the truth" about the Vietnam War, and gave him a forum to take credit for the program that fights AIDS in Africa without noting that it was President George W. Bush who pushed for its creation.
New York Times reporter Gardiner Harris latest hit on a conservative foreign policy figure appears to have backfired in spectacular fashion. Harris's report isupposedly caught United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley for wild spending on her official residence, “Envoy’s View of City is Priceless. The Curtains? $52,000.” The text box: “A purchase was made at a time when the State Dept. was slashing its budget.” Or maybe not. The decision to purchase the curtains for the official residence, as well as the move to a new residence, was made in 2016, during the Obama administration.
During a panel discussion on ABC’s This Week about former President Obama wading into the 2018 midterm campaign, Chief White House Correspondent Jon Karl pointed out that the Democrat didn’t have a good track record when it came to campaigning for members of his party in midterm elections. The liberals on the Sunday show immediately lost it, rushing to defend Obama against the accurate observation.
On Friday and Saturday, former President Obama was on the campaign trail in blue districts trying to help Democrats take back the House in November by targeting the sitting president. As would be expected, the liberal media trumpeted their president’s return and on Sunday’s Good Morning America, ABC co-anchor Dan Harris described him as a genuine political threat to President Trump.
The new comedy The Oath couldn’t come at a better time. The Oct. 12 release follows a very liberal couple (Ike Barinholtz, Tiffany Haddish) as they welcome conservative family members to their home for Thanksgiving dinner. Do sparks fly? Try punches (and maybe more, according to the film’s rowdy trailer).
