All aboard the crazy train! On Tuesday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, liberal media janitor and Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter appeared alongside host Brooke Baldwin to complain about the Trump administration boycotting Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner (WHCD), which is arguably the most pompous, self-worshipping annual celebration known to man (besides Hollywood awards shows). Because after all, there’s no profession that loves itself more than the national press!
During a contentious interview with Republican Utah Senator Mike Lee on Tuesday, the hosts of CBS This Morning grilled the lawmaker on whether President Trump should be impeached following the release of the Mueller report and fretted that the President was unfit for office. They also pressed Lee on whether the results of the Russia investigation would “hurt” Republicans politically.
Objectivity, like Elvis, long ago left the building in Washington and so the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller is being read and interpreted through mostly biased eyes. Democrats, who had counted on Mueller to prove that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia, were initially as crestfallen as they were on election night 2016. Still, they are undeterred in the pursuit of their ultimate goal: evicting the president from the White House in a political coup unprecedented in American history.
The New York Times’ hostile coverage of the annual White House Easter Egg Roll proved the paper wouldn’t dare give the Trump administration an easy boost with the non-offensive ritual, the way it did during the Obama administration. The headline in Tuesday’s edition was the giveaway: “Easter Eggs Come With a Side of Politics.” The online headline: “At a White House Tradition, Politics Color Everything but the Easter Eggs."
On Tuesday, all three network morning shows were united in promoting NBC News reporter Kristen Welker shouting an impeachment question at President Trump during the annual White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday. A soundbite of the brief exchange was featured on each broadcast, amid coverage worrying about Democrats being divided over the issue.
Monday night was truly a marathon for CNN as they aired five back-to-back town halls with Democratic 2020 candidates. Yet, despite it being only one day after the massive coordinated terrorist attack in Sri Lanka by Islamic extremists that mainly targeted Christians with almost 300 dead and 500 injured, CNN offered zero questions about anti-Christian bigotry. Instead, CNN asked those candidates eight combined questions on impeaching President Trump.
During Sunday evening’s edition of Life, Liberty & Levin, Mark Levin blasted the report released by Special Counsel Robert Mueller as demonstrating that “our very republic is at stake” because several vital aspects of our nation have “broken down.” The Fox News Channel host pointed to the separation of powers, the rule of law and the media -- which he also described as an “unfree press” -- as being responsible for the nation having “a mob mentality” because half of the people want to “continue the coup” against President Trump.
Following a one-week hiatus, the liberal hosts of The View had a mini-meltdown over the results of the Mueller report, at Monday’s Hot Topics table. Co-host Joy Behar was adamant that the big mistake here was on Mueller’s part for not forcing President Trump to sit down for a one-on-one interview or testify before Congress. She angrily ranted that had he done so, Trump would have lied for sure and would’ve been impeached “automatically.”
With the focus of the discussion on the Mueller report shifting from collusion to obstruction of justice, some in the media are just as convinced that President Trump obstructed justice in addition to having colluded with the Russians. Their proof that Trump is guilty of obstruction is in his behavior, because innocent people do not act the way Trump has acted. One of these media personalities is MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, who made the charge during Monday's Morning Joe.
New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg went way out on the post-Mueller report ledge for everyone to see, on the front of the paper’s Sunday Review, telling Democrats to get on with it and send Trump to prison: "I’ll admit to having watched this over and over again; it’s one of the most satisfying bits of wish fulfillment I’ve ever seen. Wish fulfillment is all it was, though. It’s a national disgrace that Trump sleeps in the White House instead of a federal prison cell..."
MSNBC and CNN are pushing impeachment harder than the Dem presidential candidates themselves. On Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski suggests Democrats have a "patriotic duty" to impeach and MSNBC contributor Adrienne Elrod twice says that Dems have "no choice" but to impeach. On CNN's New Day, Alisyn Camerota reacts almost angrily to Jeffrey Toobin's flat assertion that Dems won't impeach. Camerota says "I'm not so sure. The feeling is today . . . is that if you don't do something [impeach], if you're Congress and you don't do something, then you're saying that the President is above the law."
MSNBC host and notorious hate-monger, Joy Reid was excited Sunday morning, during AM Joy, as reporter Mike Viqueira came on with “breaking news”. Special Counsel Robert Mueller was spotted leaving church. “This is, you know, what some people would characterize as an ambush interview of a man coming out of Easter services at a church,” he admitted. “Some passersby weren't happy that we were doing that.”
