Seeing as how he had been the bane of the liberal media’s existence for the last 24 hours plus as he’s supposedly the real president, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh was in an ebullient mood for his Friday show. He said that he was supposedly “the new villain in Washington D.C.” ahead of a possible government shutdown that was portrayed as if the world was “end[ing] even before climate change kills us all.”
With concerns about privacy, misinformation, and bias on the rise, Senators Chris Coons (D-DE) and Bob Corker (R-TN) have warned that Facebook may soon face regulations if it doesn’t fix these problems.
Bob Corker, the outgoing Republican senator from Tennessee, recently compared supporters of President Trump to members of a cult. The Washington Post quoted Corker as saying: “It's becoming a cultish thing, isn't it? It's not a good place for any party to end up with a cult-like situation as it relates to a president that happens to be of -- purportedly -- of the same party.”
Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh blasted NeverTrump Republicans and the media that aids them on his radio program, Wednesday. Fox and Friends picked up the clip of Limbaugh taking down Tennessee Congressman Bob Corker and the media that praised his words, after he smeared Republicans who supported Trump as part of a “cult.” Limbaugh called out several media outlets as elitists who lazily dismiss those they don’t agree with, wondering why they didn’t say the same thing about Democrats when Obama was in office.
A day after MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews called out President Trump for “coming out like a kiss butt” in dealing with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, the liberal pundit reveled on Wednesday in comparing Republicans to North Korean soldiers and comments by Tennessee Republican Senator Bob Corker that GOPers are part of a “cult” for enthusiastically backing President.
On Thursday's New Day, as Alisyn Camerota pressed Senator Bob Corker about whether he will support President Donald Trump if he runs for reelection, the Tennessee Republican got in a jab at the CNN host as he alluded to her liberal bias and asked her if she had decided which Democrat she will be supporting for President.
On Sunday night, MSNBC host and serial liar Brian Williams co-hosted an MSNBC special on 2017's most interesting people and things with former McCain campaign official-turned-MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace. Given both of their records, it didn’t disappoint in churning out head-scratching selections and crazy quotes on everyone from Republican Senator Bob Corker (Tenn.) to Robert Mueller and even a love letter to the liberal media.
On the Thursday edition of MSNBC’s All In, guest and longtime American Enterprise Institute scholar Norm Ornstein showed his elitist disdain for the Founding Fathers and our constitutional government, bemoaning how less than half the U.S. population has a “super majority or close to it” in the U.S. Senate.
On Wednesday, The New York Times editorial board and Twitter account arguably crossed a line into becoming a grassroots advocacy group, encouraging and providing both readers and Twitter followers with phone numbers to call select Republican Senators in order to defeat the Republican tax plan.
This week, demonstrating why they're so despised by so many, the press created headlines out of thin air that Senators Bob Corker of Tennessee and Jeff Flake of Arizona, each of whom has announced that they will not run for re-election in 2018, "won't rule out" presidential runs in 2020. In each instance, the Senators' statements leading to headlines weren't volunteered, but were instead created as a result of deliberate "news-creating" questions from journalists.
In a report for Friday’s NBC Today, special correspondent Tom Brokaw bemoaned the “turmoil” and “chaos” in Washington following Republican Senators Jeff Flake and Bob Corker blasting President Trump. The former Nightly News anchor seized the chance to compare the current contentiousness to the Monica Lewinsky, Iran-Contra, and Watergate scandals that threatened past presidencies.
The longtime critic of President Trump, Arizona Senator Jeff Flake announced his retirement on the Senate Floor Tuesday in a spectacle targeting the President and designed to get the media all hot and bothered. After he called Trump "reckless, outrageous and undignified” all of the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) gleefully led their evening newscasts with the GOP infighting as they fawned over Flake for ‘speaking truth to power.’
