Soon after the Santa Fe, Texas school shooting, journalists and celebrities attacked those who they believe were the true culprits in the tragedy: Law-abiding gun owners and Second Amendment supporters. MSNBC host Chris Matthews was frustrated that “reasonable people have so little power at the ballot box” compared to gun-rights voters and was frustrated that the NRA seemed to be “immune to justice.” Celebrities also engaged in the demonization of gun-rights supporters. The following is a collection (so far) of the ugliest attacks on gun rights supporters in the wake of the Santa Fe, Texas, school shooting.
During a fawning interview with CNN’s Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta on Wednesday night, aired early Thursday morning, ABC’s left-wing late night host Jimmy Kimmel repeatedly heaped praise on the reporter for his notorious hostility toward the Trump administration.
Need more evidence that there are two Americas? Here: Left-wing hatred of Melania Trump is inversely proportional to flyover admiration for the first lady. In just the last month, late-night clown Jimmy Kimmel mocked Trump's Slovenian accent, CNN contributor April Ryan attacked her as "not culturally American," former Hillary Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines derided her genteel presence at former first lady Barbara Bush's funeral, and horror writer Stephen King snickered at her hospitalization this week for kidney surgery.
Michelle Wolf is not the first so-called comic to maliciously insult conservatives and Republicans at a White House Correspondents' Association dinner, but she was intentionally mean-spirited, and even after the blowback, she's unrepentant. Members of the liberal mainstream media have expressed disapproval over some of Wolf's comments, saying she went too far. But I'm not buying it. This is what passes as liberal humor these days. Just watch Jimmy Kimmel, Bill Maher and Stephen Colbert and tell me their humor is less malevolent.
Jimmy Kimmel doesn’t even try anymore. If you are a conservative, he hates you. If you’re a liberal, he’ll turn into a lame PR machine that sounds more like an Access Hollywood hack. On Tuesday, the comedy host featured far-left Senator Elizabeth Warren for two segments. Kimmel offered no tough questions and, instead, traded compliments with the “fun grandma.”
On Thursday, TIME magazine released its annual list of the world’s 100 most influential people, spanning across politics, entertainment, music, and sports. Predictably, the reliably liberal publication featured 14 glowing profiles of liberal activists, politicians, entertainers, and athletes, but only managed to find four conservative figures to highlight, one of which was a nasty hit piece.
The most hostile gathering of liberal journalists and comedians is scheduled to be on April 28. And President Trump isn’t going. Gee, who knows why? On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Michelle Wolf, the White House Correspondents’ Dinner’s host for 2018, spoke to Kimmel about how she felt about Trump avoiding the event for the second year in a row.
In this year’s list of bizarre things to happen, a stoned rapper finding his version of religion takes the cake. In the wake of rapper Snoop Dogg’s recent release of a gospel album, it’s easy to forget that only 12 months ago he was so virulently anti-Trump.
We have a fresh reminder of the Kennedys’ irresponsibility, arrogance, entitlement and dishonesty. So why would the man touted by the media as “America’s Conscience” encourage one of that brood to run for president? Good question.
One thing that defines liberals is their incessant desire to push political messages into every time and space. In a national poll of 1,000 likely voters by McLaughlin & Associates, 75 percent of the respondents said they agreed with this statement: “When I watch live sports or entertainment shows on television, I am trying to get away from politics and do not want to be bombarded with partisan political messages.” Only 17 percent disagreed. All the intensity was on the Just Say No side: 52 percent “strongly agreed” with the frustration with politics, and only six percent “strongly disagreed.”
There’s been quite an uproar since Roseanne Barr announced that her character in the upcoming Roseanne reboot is a Trump supporter. The Washington Post even compared her to fictional bigot Archie Bunker. On Thursday night, Barr battled liberal comedian Jimmy Kimmel, telling him that he was “f-[bleeped] far out” when it came to the country.
During his political-centric monologue on Thursday night, “America’s Conscience” and ABC’s late night host Jimmy Kimmel quipped that he’s “never wanted to see and not see anything more than I either do or do not want to see” a Donald Trump-Stormy Daniels sex tape and lobbied for donations to her legal defense fund so any sex tape(s) and/or explicit photo(s) can be made public.
