Friday on The View, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) was on the show to discuss her 2020 presidential run. Meghan McCain was the only host to ask Harris about her stance on decriminalizing illegal immigration, while the other hosts focused heavily on race-related questions.
Actor John Lithgow has been a busy bee lately, not only focusing on his decorated Hollywood career but also writing a book of political poetry about Donald Trump’s “corrupt” administration. In a video posted by The New Yorker’s Twitter account, Lithgow read an excerpt from his poetry on Trump’s relationship now-resigned Department of Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, a man Lithgow believes covered for sex trafficker, billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.
Joyce Vance is a former U.S. Attorney and MSNBC uses that to give her analysis added weight, but on Wednesday's edition of Deadline, the former Obama appointee compared President Trump to alleged serial child sex abuser and trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.
On Tuesday night, The Last Word was back at it with wild speculations and conspiracy theories. Host Lawrence O’Donnell and guest Zerlina Maxwell, host of Signal Boost, speculated about the sex crimes case against Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, this time in relation to Attorney General William Barr. As the discussion that followed demonstrated, the liberal media have been trying their hardest to find any possible connection between Epstein and the Trump administration.
There no group of people who receive more scorn by liberals in the media than female Republicans. A woman that dares think outside of the media’s progressive pigeonhole is immediately put in their crosshairs. Over the last few days, the media have created a new line of attack off the recent arrest of Jeffrey Epstein for the sex trafficking of minors and the renewed attention to the billionaire financier’s connections to President Trump and Labor Secretary Alex Acosta.
You would think that having a national television platform would cause one to think twice before making baseless accusations. But when you’re a host of The View, you’re allowed to make fact-free claims all the time. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg did that today on Wednesday’s show, claiming evangelical leaders don’t care enough about sex trafficking and pedophilia, while discussing the Jeffrey Epstein case.
Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity devoted part of his opening monologue Monday night to scorching the media’s attempt to make President Trump such an outsized force in coverage of the Jeffrey Epstein case. On a separate topic, Hannity trashed the media’s coverage of the President’s “salute to America” before commenting: “The press in the country is so corrupt, they will use any and everything to smear this President.”
On Monday night’s episode of The Last Word, MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell and guest Tim O’Brien made over-the-top claims and speculations into the relationship between recently indicted Jeffery Epstein and President Donald Trump. The host began the discussion with a vaguely dramatic and ominous claim: “Now, sometimes the indictment of an old friend of Donald Trump's for sex trafficking has nothing to do with Donald Trump, but this is not one of the times.”
During a segment on the arrest of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein Tuesday, View co-host Joy Behar tried desperately to connect the longtime Democrat donor to President Trump. Despite the fact that Epstein was a major donor to the Clinton Foundation and President Bill Clinton reportedly took over two dozen trips with the sexual predator on his private jet nicknamed the “Lolita Express,” with underage girls in tow, Behar still tried to make it about Trump.
ABC finally broke its silence, finally mentioning Bill Clinton’s connection to registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, a man now accused of new charges of sex trafficking. But the combined mentions on Monday night and Tuesday morning only amounted to 38 seconds. In comparison, the total amount of Epstein coverage since Sunday has been 21 minutes and 3 seconds.
CNN’s Reliable Sources host and liberal media apologist Brian Stelter was at it again on Sunday night after another show largely filled with malarkey (aside from spotlighting the Miami Herald’s investigative journalism on the Jeffrey Epstein case). As true to form, he followed up a similarly mindless newsletter that, among other things, complained that it was “gross” the President would criticize MSNBC and NBC.
Monday morning all three networks covered the arrest of billionaire, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who also happened to be a major Democrat donor, for new charges of sex trafficking. However, ABC was the only network to omit Epstein’s highly controversial connection to former President Bill Clinton.
