One might expect Jerry Seinfeld's latest edition of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, "2018: Freshly Brewed," on Netflix to get political, since comedians just can't seem to help themselves right now in jumping on the Trump bashing train, so I was pleasantly surprised to find the focus on funny instead of on politics. In fact, when guests tried to get political, Seinfeld quickly shut them down, or - shock - they talked about liberal intolerance!
For this installment of if the parties were reversed, the Thursday evening and Friday morning broadcast network newscasts refused to cover possible 2020 presidential candidate and Democratic Senator Kamala Harris (Calif.) joking on The Ellen Show about killing President Trump, Vice President Pence, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The Fox News Channel’s Hannity naturally covered it, but the other mention of this sick joke was MSNBC’s First Look, which airs in the 5:00 a.m. Eastern hour prior to Morning Joe.
During an appearance on Ellen Thursday, host Ellen DeGeneres asked Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) “if you had to be stuck in an elevator with either President Trump, Mike Pence, or Jeff Sessions, who would it be?” Harris did not pick any of the three, instead asking “does one of us have to come out alive?”
Ellen DeGeneres welcomed Oprah Winfrey on her show to discuss how President Trump mocked her on Twitter for asking voters about his mental fitness and potential sexual abuse on 60 Minutes. But first, Ellen had to play her usual game about how she's all about unity and Trump's "job" as president is to bring the unity to America. She said you can't mess with Oprah, because "when you mess with Oprah, you mess with me." And Oprah is "the mother of our country."
Michelle Obama doesn’t want you to think that she has an agenda, in any way, shape, or form. But for all her talk about unity and being “an open-hearted nation,” she can’t resist the typical liberal complaints about the Trump administration. In the same vein, Ellen Degeneres, who denies being political, also cannot avoid slamming conservative politics on her show. When Ellen told Michelle Obama that “I feel like the world is a very scary place right now,” the former First Lady responded, “People are afraid … about the direction of the country.”
In an interview with Hoda Kotb for Monday’s NBC Today, liberal talk show host and prominent Hillary Clinton booster Ellen DeGeneres laughably claimed “I’m not like a political person in any way.” Rather than challenge that absurd declaration, Kotb simply fawned: “Despite her stand against having President Trump on her show, Ellen doesn’t shy away from using her platform to comment on his policies.”
Talking to actors Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks about the Golden Globes on her show Tuesday afternoon, host Ellen DeGeneres could not wait for Oprah Winfrey to run for president in 2020. Dubbing the liberal media mogul “our future president,” DeGeneres urged her guests to join in the sycophantic praise.
Hillary Clinton’s seemingly endless book tour stopped by the Ellen DeGeneres show on Friday. And even for the liberal entertainer, the questions were over the top. DeGeneres turned to the woman who lost the 2016 election to wonder if Donald Trump can “last” four years. She also wistfully highlighted the plan to do the show from the Clinton White House.
Eminem’s rap lyrics used to be called “sexist” and “promoting rape.” Now it’s applauded as “beautiful” and “strong.”
On Wednesday, syndicated daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres told NBC’s Megyn Kelly that she would refuse to have President Trump on her show because “There’s nothing I’m going to say to him that’s gonna change him and I don’t want to give him a platform because it just...validates him.”
Ellen DeGeneres on Friday proved yet again that tolerance is a one way street for liberals. Appearing on the Today show, she told Matt Lauer that Donald Trump would not be invited on her show. Within seconds, the talk show host urged tolerance of ideas that may disagree with our own. Lauer failed to point out the galling hypocrisy in these two statements.
Twenty years ago today, Ellen DeGeneres revealed her sexual identity on network TV. In 1997, the media climate was not nearly as welcoming to LGBT people as it is now; however, as proven by the countless articles published commemorating her bravery, times have clearly changed. Today, LGBT content is not only accepted, but celebrated.
