As this author noted earlier on Sunday, the liberal media is adamant they smell President Trump’s blood in the water and they’re eager to declare his presidency dead. But during the network Sunday talk shows on ABC and NBC, their conservative panelists pushed back hard on that narrative and even mocked how they make the same claim “every other week”.
Beauty is only skin deep. And to the Democratic Party and the liberal media, that appears to be as deep as they go for selecting their candidates. That much was demonstrated during Sunday’s This Week on ABC when fill-in host Martha Raddatz, who is supposed to be an objective journalist, flashed her partisan side by bragging to former New Jersey governor Chris Christie about how diverse the income class of newly elected Democrats was.
In the wake of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, a raging liberal mob stormed the Supreme Court building. Some climbed on the statues while others clawed and banded on the massive bronze doors. At first, the liberal media tried to deny the mob existed despite airing footage of it. But judging by ABC’s This Week on Sunday, the liberal media had apparently moved on to calling the right hypocrites for pointing out the mob.
Friday morning on Good Morning America, the ABC panel assembled exploded while discussing yesterday’s Senate hearing over Judge Brett Kavanaugh and what should happen going forward. Contributor and former Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie butted heads with ABC legal analyst and The View co-host Sunny Hostin as she parroted the Democrats’ line that an FBI investigation was needed before Kavanaugh could be voted on by the Senate.
With absolutely no evidence to speak of and no public testimony from the accuser (so far), the liberal media had found Judge Brett Kavanaugh guilty in their kangaroo court of public opinion. They’ve declaring his confirmation dead in water the calling for him to withdraw himself. During ABC’s This Week, none of their liberals could understand how people could believe Kavanaugh, and lamented that people did.
In the midst of a “powerhouse roundtable” discussion during ABC’s This Week about the Bob Woodward book and the anonymous New York Times op-ed on Sunday, Michelle Goldberg, a columnist for the paper, lashed out at Trump administration officials and declared they should be ashamed that they work for President Trump.
ABC political analyst Matthew Dowd is never lacking movie analogies and had them ready for Thursday’s Good Morning America, gushing to anchor George Stephanopoulos that President Trump had gone “full hunt for Red October” trying to find the source of the anonymous New York Times op-ed written by someone in the White House who identified himself as part of the “Resistance.”
While there were some overtly political statements targeting President Trump at the memorial service for Senator John McCain at the National Cathedral on Saturday, much more of the service was focused on McCain’s life. And since the liberal media is the liberal media, they wanted to opine ad nauseam about how President Trump wasn’t invited. But during Sunday’s This Week, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie scolded his colleagues for putting the focus on Trump instead of McCain.
On Tuesday’s Good Morning America, ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos couldn’t hide his desire that President Trump would be implicated in the new Paul Manafort trial. Even though the charges against Manafort are completely unrelated to the Russia collusion investigation, Stephanopoulos kept suggesting that Trump could be impacted negatively by the trial.
Immediately following President Trump’s positive State of the Union address, which ABC complained was “divisive” “gloomy” and “sad,” the same ABC team was still in meltdown mode two hours later on Nightline. But newly instated ABC News contributor Chris Christie was the only one to declare the truth of the matter, that Democrats had become so partisan that there wasn’t “anything” he could’ve said that night to appease them.
As journalists rejoice over Republican defeats in New Jersey and Virginia, hyping them as a referendum on President Trump, we at the MRC dove into our archives to remind them that just 8 years ago they said the exact opposite when the exact same situation happened to President Obama. The comparison couldn’t get more apples-to-apples: in both 2009 and 2017, the governorships of Virginia and New Jersey were lost by the party that had just won the presidential election the year before.
On the Wednesday edition of her HLN show, conservative/libertarian host S.E. Cupp ripped into the current political debate over disaster relief funding in light of Hurricane Harvey that’s centered around how lawmakers felt about the so-called Sandy relief package in January 2013.
