Jake Tapper, host of a Cable News Network afternoon program, took part in a raucous debate on Tuesday in which the anchor of The Lead asserted that it would be easier to make a case for the media to be tough on Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump if that same standard was applied to his Democratic counterpart, Hillary Clinton.
“Would the argument of reporters,” he asked, “not be stronger if those ridiculously sycophantic questions that were asked of Hillary Clinton yesterday about “I get so teary when I think about a woman nominee” and “Congratulations.”
Hillary Clinton’s securing of the delegates necessary to obtain the Democratic Party nomination for President was the subject of fawning coverage on the nation’s top two Hispanic television networks, Univision and Telemundo.
Conservative Paul Ryan and liberal Lithwick agree that Donald Trump’s recent digs at Gonzalo Curiel were racist, but disagree about their significance. Ryan considers the attacks peculiar to Trump, while Lithwick sees them as of a piece with the Republican party’s “wider assault on the judiciary in the Obama era.”
Lithwick even wondered rhetorically, “Do Trump’s smears of Judge Curiel differ all that greatly from Senate Republicans’ refusal to even hold a hearing for Merrick Garland…? Sure, nobody on the Senate Judiciary Committee is calling Garland a biased Mexican. But the baseless, one-sided campaign to discredit a respected federal judge they once praised as moderate and well-qualified is just as damaging as Trump’s personal vindictiveness.”
Parece que la candidata presidencial demócrata Hillary Clinton está apostando todo a que los votantes de Estados Unidos la acompañan en su posición contra la construcción de un muro de seguridad a lo largo de la frontera con México.
Singer and hardcore liberal Cher made some rather outrageous comments at a posh Hollywood fundraiser for Hillary Clinton on Monday. "When I watch Trump I just want to blow my brains out.Or maybe not my brains. but I'm just like `What are you talking about? Jesus." I know that Hillary fights for equality for all people and we are no good unless all of us are equal."
Whether it’s a 2008 speech by Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton’s June 2 foreign policy speech, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews can be counted on to have a hot take that’ll evoke some head scratching and Tuesday can be added to the list as he shrieked that Clinton’s primary victory speech lines attacking Donald Trump “jumped out” at him “like a cougar” and made him think “wow.”
En un desvío impresionante de la narrativa habitual de promover manifestantes anti-Trump, Despierta América, el programa matutino de Univisión, emitió un informe contundente denunciando los "subversivos" que participaron en las protestas y la violencia cometidas en las afueras de un mitin de campaña de Trump en San José, California.
In what could be a preview of things to come, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee failed to have any voices in his corner on the latest round of Sunday talk shows broadcast by leading U.S. Spanish-language television networks Univision and Telemundo.
The right’s widely varied response to Donald Trump’s presidential bid may be the political story of the year so far, but many liberals have ignored it in favor of arguing that Trump’s worldview is a pure product of conservatism. For example, in a Sunday article, Chauncey DeVega claimed that Trump is “the logical result of at least five decades of Republican political strategy” and defined Trumpmania as “a mass political temper tantrum on the Right caused by a potent mix of authoritarianism and racism.”
“Much of the rhetoric, policies, and goals of the Republican Party and Donald Trump in 2016 are disturbingly similar to those of…the Ku Klux Klan,” declared DeVega. “This should be no surprise. The Republican Party is the United States’ largest de facto white identity organization. Conservatism and racism is now one and the same thing in the American post civil rights era.”
Predictably, Univision ratcheted up its anti-Trump rhetoric in reporting on the news that the PGA is moving its annual World Golf Championship tournament from Trump’s Doral Golf resort in South Florida to Mexico.
On Monday's New Day, CNN's David Gregory barely acknowledged the criticism of Hillary Clinton for not holding press conferences before trying to offer excuses for the former first lady: "I think she would much rather give the spotlight of negative publicity to Donald Trump, who's doing an excellent job occupying that spotlight....I don't think she wants to face a series of questions and follow-up questions on the I.G. report; on Clinton Foundation donations, and the, kind of, unscripted nature of a press conference."
For a liberal media that bemoans the idea of businesses and corporations being considered “people” post-Citizens United, BuzzFeed decided that they would cancel the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) advertising for their site due to Donald Trump’s candidacy threatening “the freedoms of our employees in the United States and around the world.”
