The rather stiff response by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer quickly inspired several funny memes on the web. One such meme noted that the stilted response by the pair resembled a hostage tape. However, the one meme that seems to have caught on in a big way was that they appeared like the father and daughter in Grant Wood's famous 1930 painting, "American Gothic."
On Tuesday’s 11th Hour, host Brian Williams tag-teamed with guests James Carville and Michael Steele to trash President Trump’s primetime address, but even this — um — special trio couldn’t escape two segments talking about the night’s events without absolutely lampooning the much-maligned and parodied Democratic response by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
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.”
Recently, U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor of Texas struck down the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a ObamaCare) on the grounds that since the law’s “tax” was currently at zero it was now unconstitutional. Fresh from whining about it on Sunday Today, moderator Chuck Todd grilled Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer during Meet the Press because he and other Democrats confirmed the Judge after President George W. Bush nominated him back in 2007.
Wednesday on The View, the co-hosts discussed President Trump’s meeting with Democrat leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer Tuesday afternoon about funding for the border wall and a potential government shutdown. Neither side would budge as expected, but the liberal hosts of The View laid all the blame on Trump, and even argued that Pelosi was “nice” to him.
CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon had thrills up their legs Tuesday night after watching House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer duke it out with President Trump in the Oval Office. They were so in love with the two Democrats that the CNN duo gave them a relationship nickname: “Nanchuck”. Warning, their gushing might cause you to up-chuck.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was in a gleeful mood on Tuesday as a result of the intense political theater that broke out hours earlier in the Oval Office between the House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the President, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, hailing Democrats for “fighting now” against Trump “after two years of holding back.” Also within Tuesday’s show, he blasted Trump as having the body language of a French mime with a sexism problem and compared him to Igor from Young Frankenstein.
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.
The press isn’t arguing any more: Silicon Valley is allied with Democrats. And The New York Times is worried that alliance is crumbling.
Silicon Valley tech companies donate fortunes to left-wing politicians. Could this be why Democrats are so hesitant to regulate them? Last week, New York Times revealed that Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) pressured Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) to back off of investigating the company: "Back off, he told Mr. Warner, according to a Facebook employee briefed on Mr. Schumer’s intervention. Mr. Warner should be looking for ways to work with Facebook, Mr. Schumer advised, not harm it. Facebook lobbyists were kept abreast of Mr. Schumer’s efforts to protect the company, according to the employee."
All three networks worried about the “fate” of the Mueller investigation with news that Attorney General Jeff Sessions was fired yesterday. On Thursday’s morning news programs, anchors and reporters tore into his replacement as acting AG, Matthew Whitaker, for comments he has made in the past criticizing the Mueller investigation. They also touted Democrats like Chuck Schumer fearmongering, calling it a “constitutional crisis.”
Despite the eventual projections that Democrats would retake the House of Representatives on Tuesday night, NBC News was still uneasy, admitting that “Donald Trump and his followers are still intact” and “there is not a blue tsunami” that could be because of the unpopularity of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
