Hollywood director Rob Reiner, who supported both Bill and Hillary Clinton, is now very concerned about political untruths. Donald Trump’s that is. Reiner appeared on Monday's edition of MSNBC’s The Beat and decried Trump as someone who “constantly lies and is lying right to our face.”
NPR and other liberal networks fail to acknowledge how their "robust critical discourse" about Trump wasn't there when Obama was president. On Saturday night's All Things Considered, the taxpayer-funded network promoted a murder mystery starring the heroes....Barack Obama and Joe Biden. They acted like everyone would love this "fun newbook." The cheerful, overly familiar online headline was "Barack and Joe Solve a Murder Mystery."
Jimmie Walker doesn't shy away from President Donald Trump in his stand-up act. Only Walker's Trump gags are meant to make people laugh, not inflame half the crowd. The Good Times alum, 71, says that makes him different than most comics in the Age of Trump.
The “poet” Obama vs. the “zombie” conservatives? From 2008 through 2016, the contrast between how journalists fawned over Barack Obama and trashed conservatives was pretty clear. On July 28, 2016, New York Times columnist Frank Bruni rhapsodized over Obama: “He’s been more than our president. Time and again, he’s been our national poet.”
Name-calling is a favorite weapon of children in grade school and the Left in politics. They both try to beat their opponents by slapping the biggest, baddest label on them that they can think of and making it stick. One of the media’s favorite labelling tactics is branding Trump supporters with that bone-chilling word: “cult.”
It seems as though Chris Matthews never lost the “thrill” up his leg. Seven and a half years after that infamous comment, the Hardball host reflected on Barack Obama’s presidency. On July 22, 2015, Matthews gushed: over the “immaculate,” “perfect” Democrat: “He's been immaculate in the presidency. Nobody has accused him of any corruption. His kids are perfect. His wife is perfect.”
On Thursday morning, CNN's New Day show displayed the latest classic example of why journalists should generally not be considered reliable sources of accurate information as the Cable News Network continued to conflate legal asylum seekers who go through the proper procedure with those who cross the border illegally and seek asylum when they are apprehended. And, as Alisyn Camerota interviewed former Obama administration ICE acting director John Sandweg, the CNN host seemed flummoxed that crossing the border into the U.S. without permission is considered illegal even when asylum seekers do it.
The View continued its pathetic pandering to Democrat politicians and officials today, after having Cynthia Nixon and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the show in the past few weeks for softball interviews. Former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett appeared on Wednesday’s show for another friendly conversation, where host Joy Behar lamented that Trump was going to destroy the world and it was imperative that Obama condemn him publicly.
In the first hour of his eponymous talk show Monday night, conservative author and host Mark Levin tore into the “totalitarian” liberal media for, among other things, being “historically illiterate” or “ideologically driven” in calling President Trump a Nazi, “mainstream[ing]” Stormy Daniels and “crackpot” Michael Avenatti, and painting themselves as chief defenders of the First Amendment.
On Sunday afternoon, MSNBC displayed the latest in a very small number of times when the dominant liberal media have admitted that the treatment of illegal immigrants in detention under the Trump administration has been very similar to what it was under the Obama administration in spite of the media treating the detention centers as if they were something President Donald Trump invented.
Some quotes need no introduction because they are just so shocking. On July 20, 1998, Time contributor Nina Burleigh said this of Bill Clinton: “I would be happy to give him a blow job just to thank him for keeping abortion legal. I think American women should be lining up with their presidential kneepads on to show their gratitude."
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich appeared on Fox and Friends Wednesday morning to combat the media’s hypocritical outrage over President Trump’s rhetoric at the press conference with Putin in Helsinki, Monday. While acknowledging that Trump made the biggest mistake yet of his presidency, he commended the president for correcting his words yesterday Gingrich further pointed out that the media and Democrats didn’t have any problem with President Obama’s soft stance on Russia, and that Trump has actually been much tougher on Putin through his administration’s actions.
