Even though most Democratic candidates in the 2020 presidential race have already withdrawn from the contest, current frontrunner Joe Biden tarnished his image as a “moderate” when he hired the extreme liberal woman who was in charge of Beto O’Rourke’s failed campaign and is a vocal advocate of confiscating AR-15 guns. A longtime Democratic strategist, Jen O’Malley Dillon is the woman in charge of Biden’s campaign as the former vice president is counting on her to help him cross the finish line on November 3.
When former Vice President Joe Biden visited Detroit on Tuesday, he got more than he expected when a construction worker asked whether he would let gun owners keep their firearms or use the government to remove them instead. The employee who posed that question was a guest on Wednesday morning's edition of Fox & Friends, when he said he was surprised that the Democratic frontrunner responded with a great deal of hostility and vulgarity to his question.
Joe Scarborough proved once again this morning that there is virtually nothing that the liberal media can't spin into a positive for one of its own. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough claimed that Joe Biden telling a construction worker that he was "full of s---" on gun control was proof of Biden's humanity, and that he was a "fighter."
Will debate moderator Chuck Todd mess up another debate with his obnoxious attitude and lefty question? The following are just a few examples of debate moderator Chuck Todd’s most liberal moments since Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, as culled from the MRC’s archives.
Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan routinely decries complaints of anti-Trump media bias by calling liberal journalists the "reality-based press." Now she's suddenly feeling the pain of media bias....against a socialist from Vermont. In an article posted on Wednesday, Margaret Sullivan declared: "The media keep falling in love — with anybody but Bernie Sanders."
Former presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke said that racism in America is “foundational” and that people of color were under “mortal threat” from the “white supremacist in the White House.” Pete Buttigieg chimed in to explain that “systemic racism” will “be with us” no matter who is in the White House. Senator Cory Booker called for “attacking systemic racism” in the “racially biased” criminal justice system.
According to a page on Andrew Yang’s website, his liberal policies include providing Medicare for all, fighting climate change, providing a pathway to citizenship for “undocumented immigrants” and supporting LGBTQ+ rights. Despite that, Time magazine on Tuesday failed to label him a “liberal.”
While Beto O’Rourke’s radically left policies made him a media favorite and garnered him praise from former President Obama, clearly his policies didn’t sit well with many Americans. As his poll numbers dropped and money stopped pouring into his presidential campaign, he decided to drop out of the 2020 race, this past Friday. Monday, the co-hosts of The View blamed a myriad of reasons for his downfall, but Joy Behar proclaimed his real problem was being too open and honest with middle America about his left-wing agenda.
If it seems like journalists have been excited about Beto O’Rourke for years, they have. The 2020 presidential candidate announced on Friday that he is dropping out after cratering, hovering at 2.1 percent nationally. This is despite fawning media coverage. A look back at his last campaign, a run for the U.S. Senate against Ted Cruz in 2018, finds puzzlement at lack of success.
Gun control did not become politically acceptable until the Gun Control Act of 1968 signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson. The law's primary focus was to regulate commerce in firearms by prohibiting interstate firearms transfers except among licensed manufacturers, dealers and importers. Today's gun control advocates have gone much further, calling for an outright ban of what they call assault rifles such as the AR-15. By the way, AR stands for ArmaLite Rifle, which is manufactured by Colt Manufacturing Co.
While a large majority of Americans celebrated the death of ISIS leader, Abu al-Baghdadi, certain members of the press were doing everything in their power to diminish the win for the country and the President. Included among those was Trevor Noah on Monday’s Daily Show with guest and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’ Rourke.
On Friday's Real Time show, liberal HBO host and comedian Bill Maher closed the show with a commentary hitting Democratic presidential candidates for pandering to pet issues of the far left, thus making themselves look too "crazy" and "weird" to beat Trump. He went through a list of bizarre campaign promises, including Bernie Sanders pushing voting rights for convicted murderers, Elizabeth Warren supporting taxpayer-funded sex changes for prison inmates, and Julian Castro supporting abortion for "transgender women."
