Donald Trump Jr.
While many liberal Democrats have responded harshly to President Trump’s proposal to move illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities, there is at least one notable exception in the controversy: Cherilyn Sarkisian, the singer and actress better known as “Cher.” In a Twitter post on Sunday, the liberal celebrity focused her attention on the situation in Los Angeles, where she claimed the city does not adequately provide for the 50,000 homeless people already there and is therefore not prepared to handle a large influx of illegal immigrants, a statement that the Republican occupant of the White House readily agreed with.
Like most other late-night hosts on TV, the star of Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC has been relentless in his hostile “jokes” about President Trump. However, the weeknight comedian may have finally begun running out of comments against the GOP official since on Tuesday night, he went even further than usual by attacking two of his sons. Regarding the crisis at the border, Kimmel sneered, “If Trump really wants to put kids in cages, he should start with Eric and Donald Jr.”
During Sunday’s so-called Reliable Sources on CNN (before we learned there was no collusion), the liberal media’s janitor, Brian Stelter was rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic as he played defense for the media’s two years of speculation in the face of no new indictments expected from the Special Counsel. Now, given the Special Counsel’s findings of no collusion, Stelter looked even more buffoonish.
Big Tech has tried to shut down conspiracy theories online, but after the release of the Mueller Report on Sunday, bias watchdogs and conservative leaders are asking when RussiaGate will be treated the same way. Conservative commentator Michelle Malkin tweeted: “Since Silicon Valley companies are cracking down on harmful conspiracy theory disseminators, when will they start shadow-banning, suspending & throttling 99.99% of MSM's thoroughly discredited Russia collusion crackpots. #TickTock.” Malkin addressed Big Tech bias in her fiery speech at CPAC.
In the March 21 episode of CBS All Access’s The Good Fight, titled “The One Inspired by Roy Cohn,” Trump-deranged liberal feminist lawyer Diane Lockhart seethes with anger whilst scrolling through Eric Trump’s Instagram account full of bloody safari trophies. Much to Diane’s distress, she's learned that her hunting tour guide husband Kurt McVeigh was not treated for 48 hours after being shot at the hands of one of President Trump's sons.
The case against social media platforms and their consistent censorship of conservative content is growing rapidly. In a new op-ed by Donald Trump Jr., the president’s son slammed Facebook, Instagram, and Google for their latest mistakes in removing and downranking posts made by the right.
Season three of CBS All-Access's The Good Fight is off and running with the issue of sexual harassment and the #MeToo movement. In the episode that aired March 14 titled “The One About the Recent Troubles," President Trump’s alleged scandals involving women other than his wife are brought into the mix.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough twice referred to Donald Trump Jr., the eldest of President Trump's children, as "Fredo." That is, of course, a reference to the fictional character Fredo Corleone, the weak, least-intelligent of the children of the Godfather, Vito Corleone. After Scarborough's second use of "Fredo," Mika Brzezinski quietly corrected her husband: "you mean Don Jr." An unrepentant Scarborough responded: "okay, Don Jr., same thing." Panelist Steve Rattner, President Obama's former car czar, can be heard laughing in the background.
Soon after former Trump attorney Michael Cohen testified in front of the House Oversight Committee hearing on Wednesday, a panel of commentators on CNN surprised viewers by contradicting the disbarred lawyer’s claim that he never wanted a post in the White House. Cohen’s troubles began when Dana Bash, the chief political correspondent for the liberal channel, pointed out that he was “not the perfect messenger” to attack Trump because of “one potential problem” contradicting CNN’s reports on the matter.
Tuesday night on the Fox News Channel, Donald Trump Jr. and Fox News host Tucker Carlson went off on how ‘woke capitalism’ may doom the American people — especially thanks to tech companies. Carlson and Don Jr. are both wary of big tech, and warn it is no ally to conservatives despite benefitting from the free market. In an appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight, Don Jr. stressed that Republicans need to learn from his father’s playbook, “I think we have to start pushing back and I think we have to start pushing back hard,” he said. “If we don’t, we’ll never get the chance again.”
If anyone should be able to detect a gigantic hoax, it’s Al Sharpton, who was catapulted into the national spotlight in the 1980s while defending black teenager Tawana Brawley in what turned out to be false claims she was raped by four white men. When the news broke in the past several days about Jussie Smollett supposedly being attacked by two masked men in Chicago yelling racial and anti-gay slurs, Sharpton was immediate in his support for the gay black actor: “We’re with you, Jussie.” However, after it was revealed that Smollett and the two other black men had perpetrated a hoax, the MSNBC host responded that the persons involved “ought to face accountability to the maximum.”
Caleb Howe at Mediaite smacked MSNBC host Rachel Maddow on Monday for obscuring the breaking bad news for liberals: Donald Trump Jr. did not call his father, but business associates, about his meeting with Russians at Trump Tower. When the facts broke on Thursday, Chris Hayes reported it...and then Maddow would only say "I don't want to try to be any more specific" than ABC or CNN. They were far more specific than she was.
