To offer a different interpretation, reader WKRP took the view that McQuade was not suggesting that President Trump be stripped of his citizenship, but that he be removed from office if he obtained the presidency via fraud. If indeed that's what McQuade meant, she found a roundabout means of saying so. But this writer acknowledges this as a plausible alternative interpretation of her remark.
Just when it seemed that the reaction to the death of former President George H. W. Bush was dying down, former ESPN anchor and far-left writer Jemele Hill of The Atlantic did her best to use the situation to inflame any racist sentiments held by black Americans. The article from Hill asserted that the Obamas “were gracious to the Trumps” because they “had to be” since “black people have no choice but to act benevolently toward whites for fear of more punishment.”
Thursday, the media continued bringing President Trump into their live coverage of former President George H.W. Bush’s funeral proceedings. Instead of comparing their presidencies, ABC took it a step further late Thursday, with two of its journalists crudely mocking how President Trump’s own funeral would be different.
Sometimes the liberals on the MSNBC cable television channel become so involved in their take on a story that they need a conservative guest to remind them that there’s a big world out there they never cover. That was the case on Thursday, when the frequent Trump critics on the weekday Morning Joe program were reminded by presidential biographer Jon Meacham of an obvious truth: “It is possible ... in America to have a conversation about someone and not be about the incumbent president.”
On Morning Joe, commenting on remarks by Rudy Giuliani that could be seen as critical of President Trump, Mika Brzezinski twice asks at "what time" Giuliani crafted his remarks. She twice suggests that the explanation for Rudy's candor could lie in the fact that they came "late in the day." Back in 2016, at a time when Trump was considering Giuliani as a possible selection for Secretary of State, Mika hinted that Rudy had been "drinking a lot" during a meeting with Trump.
We knew that the son of liberal news anchor Murphy Brown on CBS’s Murphy Brown would probably not last too long in his new job with a conservative news network. He didn’t. In the episode airing December 6 titled “The Wheels On the Dog Go Round and Round,” Avery Brown quit the show's version of Fox News in a righteous huff, railing against them "shilling for this current administration" and feeding the audience "BS."
Late Thursday night, CNN’s New York office was again evacuated after someone from “the south” phoned in a bomb threat to the building. According to hysterical CNN host Don Lemon, the timing was “suspicious” because it came mere minutes after President Trump put out a tweet attacking the media. And according to one unhinged CNN analyst, it was just another indicator that America was unmistakably “becoming a battlefield”.
With the nation still in mourning from the passing of former President George H.W. Bush, NBC spent six minutes, 19 seconds during their Thursday evening broadcast on stories that amounted to bad news for President Trump and/or the Republican Party before they finally got around to mentioning the final day of the funeral services.
A year ago, ESPN's SportsCenter broadcasts were so far to the Left side of the political ledger that critics aptly dubbed it "Woke Center." Since then, the rebranded "SC6" and its co-hosts/social justice warriors Jemele Hill and Michael Smith have moved on, and new ESPN president Jimmy Pitaro says he wants no politics on ESPN air. This was the prompt for Ben Strauss's Washington Post story, "ESPN Wants to Make 'SportsCenter' Great Again."
On Wednesday's Late Night with Seth Meyers, aired early Thursday, NBC host Meyers provided far-left British journalist Mehdi Hasan an unchallenged forum to excoriate former President George H.W. Bush for the deaths of Iraqis and Panamanians, as well as the Willie Horton campaign issue and Bush's reaction to the AIDS epidemic.
New York Times reporter Peter Baker marked the ceremony for former President George H. W. Bush on the front of Thursday’s edition, but his main focus was on attacking one of the attendants: President Trump, through biased interpretation of body language and some light mind-reading. At a moment that promised bipartisan respect, the Times wants to deepen the very divisions it pretends to deplore. Baker condescended: "[Historian John Meacham] also essentially explained Mr. Bush’s thousand-lights phrase to Mr. Trump."
Chris Cuomo is the voice of reason on CNN. No, really. It’s true. Or at least it was true on Wednesday night as Cuomo called out colleague Don Lemon as “petty and small.” This rather shocking exchange came after Lemon declared he wouldn’t shake Trump’s hand, were he in the position the Obamas were during Wednesday’s funeral of George H.W. Bush.
