In case you’re not clear on it, John Oliver REALLY hates conservatives. And he’d rather be nasty than funny. On Sunday’s Last Week Tonight, the HBO host, again, compared Ted Cruz to a certain part of the male anatomy. Last week, he stated that Ted Cruz, a Republican senator from Texas, “can lick my balls.” This Sunday, he expanded our knowledge to include the word “scrote.”
The media must be exhausted from constantly moving the goal posts. First, it was why won't Republicans condemn President Trump and his tweets, then the condemnation was not sufficient and now, according to CNN Newsroom co-host Jim Sciutto are damaging the state of political discourse by calling the four Democratic congresswomen "whacko birds."
When on Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch praised President Trump's restraint on Iran, Joe Scarborough interjected to clarify that Deutsch was only referring to Trump's restraint in regard to attacking Iran. Scarborough was concerned that Deutsch would get "killed" on Twitter if it were thought he was more broadly praising Trump's restraint. Scarborough also said that although Trump "lies," his lies were not "deadly," unlike those made by JFK and LBJ when they lied about the winnability of the Vietnam War. Those lies, said Scarborough, led to 57,000 American deaths.
On his MSNBC show, Hardball, Chris Matthews suggests that it would be a "witch hunt . . . to impeach a President for his sexual misconduct, even if it is illegal."
Former CNN host Piers Morgan tweeted on Tuesday that he had just watched the Chappaquiddick movie, which he described as “excellent” and “tough” on the late Ted Kennedy, but he also tried to diminish what the former U.S. Senator did during the events of July 18, 1969.
To mark the anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on Wednesday, MSNBC’s radical Joy Reid put out a series of tweets fawning over how “the Kennedys occupy a special place in our national consciousness.” According to her, those “mythical” stories about the Kennedys were part of what held the country together and elevated us.
On Sunday night, the thrill inside of MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was alive and well for Barack Obama as he anchored a two-hour special swooning over the “American eloquence” of the President as he received the Profile in Courage Award from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library.
WASHINGTON — The average American is understandably perplexed as to why Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and, of course, the runner up in last year's Democrat primaries, Sen. Bernie Saunders, are so lathered up over the Republicans' recent overtures to the Russians. They are calling for the impeachment of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
President Donald Trump's inaugural address may not have risen to the rhetorical level of John F. Kennedy ("The torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans" and "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country"), or Ronald Reagan's critique of government ("Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem"), or even Barack Obama's in 2009 ("On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord"), but the speech set out large goals, many details of which are yet to be revealed.
Remember how liberals went over-the-top apoplectic when Donald Trump declined to explicitly state that he would accept the results of the election? And what are we seeing after Trump's victory? The most infantile elements of the left -- pardon the redundancy -- engaging in a collective hissy fit and refusing to accept the results of the election.
MSNBC's Rachel Maddow tried last night to serve up a justifiable rationale for this churlish refusal and instead made a laughable analogy.
NBC’s Timeless began its third episode, “Atomic City,” by excusing the acts of one of John F. Kennedy’s mistresses because she demonstrated girl power during a tough time for women.
Sleazy and misogynistic men have roamed the halls of the Capitol Building and White House for years. However, the media tends to disproportionately target those on the political right.
