New York Times congressional reporter Carl Hulse once again rationalized and trumpeted childish and undignified Democratic tactics during Senate Judiciary hearings, in the party’s cynical yet (so far) failed attempt to derail Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. Hulse on Saturday celebrated the Democrats showing their voters "that they would not be bulldozed by Republicans."
The most embarrassing moment throughout the entire confirmation process for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh didn’t even involve him directly. In an obvious case of grandstanding Thursday, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker issued hollow threats about released allegedly confidential e-mails from the nominee, which he said could get him expelled from the Senate. Despite being called out for his presidential ambitions, Booker pompously declared it was his “I am Spartacus moment.”
On Monday night, MSNBC prime-time shows spent the vast majority of their time discussing President Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court. Of the 27 guests which appeared over the four-hour block from 8:00 p.m. to midnight ET, not a single conservative was given time to speak about the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh.
In Friday’s New York Times, Gardiner Harris and Eileen Sullivan went on the attack against Mike Pompeo, the current CIA Director and President Trump’s nominee to become Secretary of State with the title “Trading Snarl for Smile, Pompeo Makes Case to Lead State Department.”
Following hours of CIA Director Mike Pompeo testifying during his Senate confirmation hearing to become the next Secretary of State, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur decided to single out a particularly absurd exchange where Democratic Senator Cory Booker grilled the nominee on his views about gay marriage. Predictably, Tur tried to argue that the bizarre and irrelevant line of questioning was actually essential in determining Pompeo’s foreign policy credentials.
On Thursday afternoon, it was no accident that CNN almost universally focused on New Jersey Democratic Senator Cory Booker’s questions for CIA Director Mike Pompeo at his confirmation hearing to oversee the State Department. It was even less of a surprise that the CNN panel gushed over Booker “masterfully” attacking Pompeo in a “tough exchange” about his views on gay sex.
ABC’s The View started off the week with a largely cozy interview with Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), a potential 2020 challenger to President Trump. Meghan McCain pressed Booker on the fact that Robert Mueller’s team of investigators is stuffed with registered Democrats and Hillary Clinton donors. Booker kept changing the subject to Trump’s manners.
The journalists at CBS This Morning allowed Senator Cory Booker to smear Trump administration officials with what sounded like a Nazi comparison. The Democrat appeared, Wednesday, to gloat about his theatrical attack on Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and her recounting of whether Donald Trump used a profanity in the Oval Office.
Award shows have now become recruiting grounds for liberals. At the Glamour Women of the Year Awards, on November 13, people like Rep. Maxine Waters (D-California) and Samantha Bee got to tell the “hundreds of high school girls” in the audience just how they felt about Trump and his administration. Waters tried to tell the audience to “join progressive organizations” and ended her awards acceptance speech with an attempt to start an “Impeach him” chant.
¿En verdad Univison va a volver a exagerar su relevancia en las elecciones presidenciales? ¿En serio, después de la verguenza sufrida por la cadena tras las elecciones del 2016? Basada en la entrevista reciente de Jorge Ramos con el senador Cory Booker, demócrata por New Jersey, la respuesta parece ser un sí contundente.
Is Univision really doing this thing again, where it oversells its relevance to a presidential election? Really, after crashing and burning while doing just that in 2016? Based on Jorge Ramos' latest interview with U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), the answer is a resounding yes.
New York Times’ reporter Nick Corasiniti celebrated scandal-plagued Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez on the top of the paper’s New York section Saturday: “After a Month in Court, Menendez Relishes a Trip to Washington – Senator Capitalizes On Break in His Trial.” Corasaniti's latest report is notably longer (1300 words) and more prominently placed than the dutiful pieces he's previously filed on Menendez’s corruption trial for his relationship with Florida doctor Salomon Melgen. At least he's now on his toes to actually identify the Democratic senator as a Democrat in his stories, since the controversy when he bizarrely failed to do so in a Times story in early September.
