Sorry but running for the U.S. Senate is just not good enough for me. On Thursday, presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke attempted to reboot his failing campaign with a major speech in which he rabidly attacked President Donald Trump but may have ended up shooting himself in the boot. That is the conclusion of liberal Washington Post political reporter Aaron Blake who proclaimed himself disgusted by the massive hubris displayed by O'Rourke's speech in El Paso when he stated that running for the U.S. Senate is not important enough for him.
After two mass shootings took place within hours of each other last week, the Sunday panelists on the Fox News Channel’s MediaBuzz discussed the concept that people in the media accused President Trump of being responsible for the shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. Our friend Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist went so far as to state that people in the media blamed Trump and his supporters for the deaths, which is “completely beyond journalists’ responsibility and a real turning point for the worst in American discourse.”
All of MSNBC’s far-left fantasies came true Wednesday afternoon when reporter Jacob Soboroff got 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke to label President Trump a “white supremacist” – he didn’t exactly have to twist the left-wing politician’s arm. The impromptu live interview occurred in the 4:00 p.m. ET hour, causing Deadline: White House anchor Nicolle Wallace and her liberal panelists to be overwhelmed with joy.
A ghoulish Stephenie Ruhle on Tuesday promoted the idea that 2020 Democrat Beto O’Rourke could use the mass slaughter in El Paso this past weekend as a way to gain “momentum” for his floundering presidential campaign. She wondered, “Beto has said he is running in the name of decency and democracy. As bad as this may sound, could this moment be a chance for Beto to gain some momentum?”
On Wednesday, all three network morning shows wailed about President Trump daring to criticize former Democratic Congressman and 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke. However, none of broadcasts had any problem with the wildly irresponsible rhetoric that O’Rourke and other Democrats have employed since the mass shootings in Texas and Ohio over the weekend.
The New York Times’s lead story Monday morning was of course the mass murder of 29 people in two mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso. The second paragraph cast some blame at “angry words directed at immigrants...by right-wing pundits and President Trump.” The theme of Monday’s paper was to tie President Trump to the El Paso mass murderer. Peter Baker and Michael Shear’s “news analysis,” “In Texas Gunman’s Manifesto, An Echo of Trump’s Language,” handed flailing Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke (and several other Democratic opportunists) a microphone to blame Trump.
Somebody forgot to tell Mika Brzezinski that Democrats aren't supposed to openly discuss their plans to exploit the mass shootings for political purposes. Today's Morning Joe opened with a clip of Beto speaking about the El Paso shooting. Check out the full post to see what they said.
There was more shoddy journalism form CNN talking head Jake Tapper during Sunday’s State of the Union as he repeatedly set up his Democratic guests to cast blame on President Trump for two mass shootings on Saturday. He also insinuated the President was a “racist” and “white nationalist” in the exact same vein as the shooter in El Paso, Texas.
It wasn’t 24-hours since the first of two tragic mass shootings on Saturday and ABC News was entrenched and spewing the liberal hate that demanded that President Trump be considered the cause of the violence. Suggesting it was “fair” to blame Trump for the shootings during Sunday’s Good Morning America, chief White House correspondent Jon Karl argued the shootings were “going to be something that he is going to have to answer for.”
Not long after CNN wrapped part one of the Democratic Party presidential primary debates Tuesday night, the post-debate analysis boiled down to how the so-called “moderate” candidates on the stage did against the extremely far-left ones. In that vein, CNN’s chief national correspondent, John King argued that just because a far-left radical had never won a national election (that’s not true) doesn’t mean it can’t be done in 2020.
CNBC editor-at-large John Harwood didn’t just interview 2020 Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke about the economy July 5. He literally asked questions while eating Mexican food with the candidate. That jovial setting was perfect for the easy and friendly interview Harwood conducted. Harwood often lets his liberal views show on CNBC. CNBC.com described the interview as O’Rourke “filling in the blanks” on his economic plans which included raising taxes.
One reason many Americans don’t trust those “fact checker” websites is because to know them is to see right through their incessant liberal worldview. These impartial arbiters of truth routinely defend Democrats as being “Mostly True” on everything, while savaging Republicans as just the opposite. It's not just Trump, mind you. It's Cruz, and Santorum, and Gingrich, and pretty much anyone who challenges liberal orthodoxy. So it was maddening that NBC News put its “fact checker” Jane Timm on the first Democrat debate, who then proclaimed on their “NBC News Now” live-stream that “we had a pretty clean debate.”
