On Monday’s edition of Hardball with Chris Matthew, former federal prosecutor Cynthia Alksne joined a discussion on the legal cases surrounding President Trump. Among the cases discussed were those concerning former Trump Campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen. Alksne had specific advice for Cohen, saying that “he can give the prosecutor something on Trump’s kids.”
On Tuesday, CNN aired a segment taking a look into administration officials and even Republican members of Congress who have relatives that appear to disagree with their work. CNN’s White House Correspondent Chris Cillizza joined host Brooke Baldwin to give a rundown of the spats.
On Thursday's Andrea Mitchell Reports on MSNBC, host Mitchell not only fretted that First Daughter Ivanka Trump was not doing enough to "lobby" against aggressive enforcement of immigration laws, but she also seemed taken aback that Attorney General Jeff Sessions pushed for such enforcement as a "deterrent" as if such a motivation were a scandal, even though the Barack Obama administration also pursued what it called an "aggressive deterrence policy" to ward off asylum seekers from Central America.
The New York Daily News announced on Tuesday that the tabloid-style newspaper -- best known for its bizarre front pages slamming Republican President Donald Trump -- to “fundamentally restructure” its focus on “its digital audience.” A memo released by the newspaper’s executives stated: “We are reducing today the size of the editorial team by approximately 50 percent and re-focusing much of our talent on breaking news -- especially in areas of crime, civil justice and public responsibility.”
The left can’t help but own up to its insanity, apparently. On Netflix, comedienne Michelle Wolf, best known for her White House Correspondents Dinner debacle, was so proud of being labelled “unhinged” by the Republican National Committee that she built an entire episode of her show The Break around it.
According to the inverted moral order of the left, it’s horrific to take a child from its mother’s arms, but it’s okay to kill it in her womb.
Tensions were high on Thursday’s Deadline: White House as host Nicolle Wallace and her outraged panel fumed over Rudy Giuliani’s recent remarks about porn star Stormy Daniels. As the MSNBC host's frustration boiled over, she speculated whether the women in the Trump family were, “numb,” “dead inside,” or “paid off.”
Reacting on Thursday morning’s CNN Newsroom to Samantha Bee’s jumbled apology the night prior for calling First Daughter Ivanka Trump the c-word, CNN political commentator and HLN host S.E. Cupp took Bee to task for her apology being “couched in like a dozen different codicils” and, worst of all, “virtue-signaling” without a heartfelt apology to Ivanka herself.
Samantha Bee, and the geniuses at TBS, had a week to script an astute statement for her—getting the issue of her signature vulgarity off her back—and they blew it. Bee said last night that she has dropped the “c-word” many times before, stating that her goal is to “reclaim” it. Why? Why would she want to normalize a word that if used to describe her own mother she would recoil?
One week after TBS host Samantha Bee unleashed an obscene attack on Ivanka Trump, most of the advertisers seem to have disappeared from her Full Frontal show. Bee on Wednesday night returned to blame the media for playing up her vulgar comments, but companies like Taco Bell, Jim Beam, Geico and others did not.
TBS Full Frontal host and comedian Samantha Bee has been feeling the heat since her crass May 30 declaration that Ivanka Trump was a “feckless c**t” who should seduce her father to change immigration policy. But during what started out on Wednesday night sounding like a sincere apology, Bee appeared to shift the blame for the firestorm onto the media. And suggested they preferred to focus on her insult instead of the message she was trying to convey about immigration.
On Thursday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of the controversy over TBS host Samantha Bee calling Ivanka Trump a "feckless c***," and Roseanne Barr comparing former Barack Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett to an ape, CNN.com contributor Dean Obeidallah came to the liberal Bee's defense, lauding her as "an important voice." And, in response to conservative talk radio host Stacy Washington complaining about the double standard of liberal comedians Bill Maher and Joy Behar being tolerated when they attack conservatives, host Don Lemon defended Behar for recently painting Christians as mentally ill.
