Donald Trump Jr.
The busy and eventful summer for the Trump administration was too much of a calling for NBC’s Saturday Night Live, still between seasons. Which was why, on Thursday night, the network brought back their Weekend Update skit for a half hour long comedy special. The special had some pretty humorous moments. But for good natured people, the show took a dark turn when a bit involving President Trump’s adult sons portrayed Eric Trump as a person with an intellectual disability.
On the Russia-Trump imbroglio, let us be clear. We are now months into it. A dozen or so culprits have been fingered, some being actually quite amusing. You will be seeing more of the fat British music promoter Rob Goldstone, who has been photographed wearing a baseball hat emblazoned with the letters "C*NTY." He is too good to be ignored.
After relentless attacks from Donald Trump and the Republican president’s allies, a series of journalistic catastrophes and in the shadow of a possible merger, CNN's chief executive officer, Jeff Zucker, is feeling the heat, according to Vanity Fair columnist Sarah Ellison.
It’s certainly no surprise that MSNBC's Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough and Sean Hannity, host of his eponymous weeknight show on the Fox News Channel, have been feuding over President Donald Trump and the Republican Party in general.
As always, leave it to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich to pithily assess the flood of media stories about Donald Trump Jr.’s 20-minute minute meeting with a Russian lawyer in June of 2016. Appearing on Fox’s My Story, hosted by Martha McCallum, Gingrich had a two word description for all the frenzied coverage: “fevered insanity.”
On Friday's MSNBC Live, host Craig Melvin denied that the dominant news media have a liberal bias after Republican Congressman Dave Brat started hitting him with reports that over 96 percent of journalists who made political donations chose Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. A bit later, Melvin denied biased reporting as he declared, "Even if that bias did exist -- which, I mean, Dave, it doesn't -- even if it did --" Brat zinged him: "If it exists? Now, you got to come clean with me on that one."
The media’s sudden explosion over a meeting last summer at Trump Tower between Donald Trump Jr. and an alleged “Kremlin-backed lawyer” (she wasn’t Kremlin-backed) has spawned a whole new feeding frenzy. Every mini-scoop gets inflated into the latest contender in the urgent liberal question “What Will Finally Get Trump Impeached?”
The Washington Post published a surprising op-ed on Friday. The online headline was "The media's martyr complex is embarrassing." (The last two words somehow didn't fit in the newspaper headline.) It's the latest article the Post has published from Gary Abernathy, publisher and editor of the Hillsboro (Ohio) Times-Gazette.
On Thursday, CBS’s The Late Show host Stephen Colbert reminded everyone how lewd and pathetic his behavior has been, tearing into White House senior counsel Kellyanne Conway as “Satan's trophy wife” during a shtick mocking her most recent Hannity appearance defending the Trump administration from Russian collusion claims.
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's All In with Chris Hayes, MSNBC's Joy Reid was displaying a severe case of projection as the far-left AM Joy host claimed that the Republican party is "built on" "resentment," "victimhood," and a "persecution complex" -- all of which would be more aptly applied to her own liberal ideology.
I have returned! From Europe, that is, and I hope I met with no Russian agents while there. The soi-disant liberals are in a snit about the Russians. Apparently, Donald Trump Jr. and the mysterious senior White House adviser Jared Kushner met with an agent of the Kremlin in June of last year, and they did not report their meeting to The Powers That Be.
During a Bastille Day press conference on Thursday with President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron, a male French reporter from BFM-TV tried to bait Macron into attacking Trump over his immigration policies and knock Trump down for previous statements about French terror attacks.
