Donald Trump Jr.
Imagine CNN running with a story based on anonymous sources that Barack Obama thought his children were stupid. Or the Clintons thought Chelsea was a moron. Unthinkable? Naturally. But with the Trump family, anything goes. On CNN Tonight on Tuesday, Don Lemon brought on McKay Coppins of The Atlantic to tout his tabloidish story about how Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump are furiously fighting each other to be president.
Twitter’s war against conservatives and Republicans has some collateral damage — the company’s advertising business. Twitter blocked the campaign account for Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) account from posting on August 7. The platform claimed that in posting a video showing the violent threats aimed at McConnell, Team Mitch violated Twitter policy on violence and harassment. Republicans did the only thing left to do: they stopped spending money on Twitter ads until further notice.
On Sunday's Reliable Sources, CNN host Brian Stelter aired a four-minute fraction of his 22-minute podcast interview with author and advice columnist E. Jean Carroll, who alleges Donald Trump sexually assaulted her in a department store dressing room at some point in 1995 or 1996. He left out this preachy moment from the very end: "It is always a great time to reevaluate and talk about the relationships between men and women, and power of men in this society. And it does seem like the Trump presidency is one long class about the patriarchy."
The liberal media loathe President Trump and his supporters to a degree that is impossible to deny. The constant chastising of the President as well as the voters across the country who elected him to office grows more draining by the day. Donald Trump Jr. appeared on Fox News Saturday night to discuss the hostile coverage of President Trump’s Florida rally launching his reelection bid earlier in the week.
Along with many comrades in the liberal media, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was incensed that all of President Trump’s adult children joined him on his State Visit this week to the United Kingdom, belly-aching on Tuesday’s show about the “ridiculous” modern-day “Romanovs” going overseas projecting a sense of royalty.
During the 3:00 p.m. hour of Monday's CNN Newsroom, the panel repeatedly compared President Trump to a king as they covered his state visit with Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II. In addition to indulging her guests’ suggestions that the President would like to be a king, host Brooke Baldwin teed up British journalist Harry Mount to trash the President.
Some in the liberal media regularly blame President Trump when anything bad happens anywhere across the country, and one of the most ardent supporters of that philosophy is MSNBC's Morning Joe co-host and Trump flip-flopper Joe Scarborough. Nevertheless, he accused the Republican official in the White House on Wednesday of “aggressively trying to cover up any evidence” that the Russians have tried to “subvert American democracy.”
On this morning's New Day, Berman offered up a steaming serving of anti-Trump liberalism. The subject was Lindsey Graham's suggestion on Fox News yesterday that Don Jr. needn't comply with a Senate intel subpoena to provide additional testimony. Berman suggested to John Avlon, a CNN analyst and former editor-in-chief of the lefty Daily Beast, that Graham has gone "from wingman [to John McCain] to wingnut." Most telling was that Berman prefaced his quip by assuring Avlon, "you'll like this one." Berman was thus boastfully sucking up to a committed Trump critic.
Friday on The View, the hosts spent their politics segment attacking President Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., as a “stupid” criminal who was unquestionably “guilty as all get out,” of conspiring with the Russians to help Trump win the 2016 election. The topic arose from the news that the Republican chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee had subpoenaed the president’s son to talk about his answers to Mueller about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting. Rumors that he would ignore the subpoena outraged the hosts, who bitterly clung to their belief that the Mueller report didn’t clear President Trump of collusion.
Thursday’s Hardball came out guns blazing with not only a crazy panel that included collusion delusion sufferers David Corn of Mother Jones, host Chris Matthews, and fanatical MSNBC contributor Malcolm Nance. Oh, no, but it also included kooky lines insisting on Trump-Russian collusion, decrying Trump supporters pushing back on a Senate subpoena for Donald Trump Jr. as “gangster talk” by “thugs,” and suggesting Americans must still be spoon fed about “the Russian attack.”
There are parody accounts and satire accounts on Twitter for almost every politician, red or blue. But not for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). Twitter removed a parody account (that clearly stated multiple times on the account page that it was a parody) for “creating fake and misleading accounts.” The account owner, Michael Morrison, was also “permanently suspended.”
The liberal media gave Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar a pass yet again this week after she was criticized for making more offensive, unpatriotic comments. In a resurfaced 2017 tweet that went viral Monday, Omar attacked American troops who died in the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu (told in the book/movie “Black Hawk Down,”) as killers. One of the few liberal media outlets to actually talk about the backlash Omar received was Newsweek, and they only did so to defend her outrageous comments.
