Of all the absurd takes on the U.S.–North Korean situation in the wake of President Trump's tentative, conditional agreement to meet with Kim Jong Un, Barbara Demick's Friday "analysis" piece at the Los Angeles Times has to be near the top of any "worst" list. The headline: "Whatever comes next, North Korea's Kim Jong Un can claim a win against Trump." Oh really?

During a speech at a campaign rally for a congressional race in Pennsylvania on Saturday, President Trump unleashed on the liberal media and NBC Political Director Chuck Todd whom he called a “sleeping son of a b*tch.” And as would be expected, CNN media reporter Brian Stelter and his Reliable Sources panel responded with their own righteously indignant hot takes. Chief among them was Baltimore Sun media critic David Zurawik who argued that if you laughed at Trump’s jokes you were damaging society.

On New Day Sunday, CNN viewers finally saw the recent controversy over Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan's ties to Democrats at least mentioned by someone other than Jake Tapper during a discussion of former Donald Trump advisor Steve Bannon's speech to a right-wing political group in France. But -- in spite of the incendiary and blatantly racist nature of some of Farrakhan's comments, some of which have been very recent -- co-host Victor Blackwell suggested that it was more important to give attention to Bannon's speech than that of Farrakhan.

When it was first announced last Thursday that President Trump was to personally meet with North Korea Dictator Kim Jong-un for negotiations, the media’s response varied from optimistic to seething anger. But with some time, it appears as though their consensus is now to denounce the idea, as was blatantly obvious on Sunday’s Meet the Press. The entire panel up in arms and fretting that Trump was either going to hand North Korea a victory or blow a gasket at the meeting and start a war.

Many liberals woke up on the morning of November 9 in a state of extreme shock when they found out that the impossible happened...Donald J. Trump had been elected the 45th president of the United States. As we have seen in the many entertaining post-election videos, many reacted with shock, fury, or extreme sadness. However, one of the Trump haters acted in a very unique fashion; he blockaded not only all news about Donald Trump but, in fact, all news of the outside world from his mind. 

The special election for Pennsylvania’s 18th congressional district between Rick Saccone (R) and Connor Lamb (D) was two days away and the liberal media was set for it to be a victory in their favor. A top story on each of ABC’s and NBC’s Sunday morning news programs was dedicated to playing up the possibility that the Democrats could beat out Republicans in their own district, which would help take back control of the House of Representatives in what they were calling a “blue wave.”

At the New York Times it is mandatory that President Donald Trump receive little or no credit for his accomplishments. This seems to be especially true about the Thursday announcement that Trump will be meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un by May. The Times columnist, Max Fisher, went out of his way to emphasize not only in his Thursday column (which must have been hastily written since the announcement came at 7 PM that day) but also in a series of tweets that Trump just wasn't following proper diplomatic protocol. 

When the startling news broke late Thursday that President Trump had accepted an invitation to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, the media intelligentsia begrudgingly shifted their focus away from the Stormy Daniels controversy. But with the leak of an e-mail sent by Trump’s lawyer from his Trump Organization account, they leapt on the excuse to return to their preferred topic.

MRC President Brent Bozell on Thursday attended a White House meeting with Donald Trump to discuss violence in video games. Talking to Fox Business’s Charles Payne, Bozell said of the meeting: “I promise you, if you saw some of the violence we saw today on some of these games, you wouldn't allow it on your network. But why then are millions of children watching it?”  

After some liberal journalists initially praised President Trump’s willingness to meet with murderous North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, a number of them remembered later Thursday night that they’re members of The Resistance. New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof was one such lefty, telling host Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC’s The Last Word that Trump has made “a dangerous gamble,” despite Kristof’s past encouragement for direct talks and engagement.

New York Times reporter Katie Rogers covered the impromptu discussion at the White House on video games and violence, and casually worked in several strong “censorship” smears against those concerned about the issue: "Melissa Henson, the director of programs for the Parents Television Council, a censorship advocacy group...."

David Letterman’s Netflix series, My Next Guest Needs no Introduction, hosted Pakistani education activist Malala Yousafzai on Friday’s episode, “You Know, She has a Nobel Peace Prize.” But while Malala discussed the importance of education for women, with less than 12 minutes left in the interview, Letterman uses his opportunity to interview the youngest Nobel Prize laureate to pick fun at President Trump.
