Ever since Donald Trump won the White House in November of 2016, the networks’ late-night “comedy” hosts have been constantly criticizing the Republican official for doing everything they could possibly think of -- and making up other charges along the way. That was certainly the case on Wednesday evening, when the host of ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! joked that other leaders across the world made fun of him at the NATO summit in London before claiming other people in attendance were “laughing at our ridiculous president” even though “that is our job.”
During a monologue on the blackface controversy surrounding Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Fox News host Tucker Carlson pointed out CNN host Don Lemon’s double standards when it comes to accepting apologies. While Lemon seemed unwilling to accept former NBC anchor Megyn Kelly’s apology for merely suggesting that there was nothing wrong with wearing blackface in Halloween costumes, Lemon all too happily accepted Trudeau’s apology for actually wearing blackface.
The American press fell head over heels for the lefty Canadian PM when he first hit the scene in 2016. He got the pop star treatment with network anchors catching “Justin Fever” as they swooned over the “super hunky” “dreamy” and “adorable” politician they dubbed “Canada’s Obama.” The following is just a few of examples of the liberal media’s infatuation with Trudeau, as culled from the MRC’s archives.
The revelation that Canadian Prime Minister wore brownface on multiple occasions as an adult has thrown a wrench in a northernly neighbor's election cycle as the world's most woke leader is now the subject of international scrutiny for his past behavior. Back home the media has pursued the usual "pouncing" angels, but CNN contributor Wajahat Ali took the opportunity on Thursday's CNN Newsroom to espouse some hot takes of his own, including that, "conservatives don't seem to like black and brown people."
Another prominent liberal leader has been engulfed in a racism and blackface scandal, this time Canada’s very progressive Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Although all the networks covered it, they made sure to frame the story as conservatives “pouncing” on the politician. CBS This Morning actually managed to ignore an ideological label for Trudeau. On NBC’s Today, Craig Melvin introduced the story this way: “While he has apologized overnight, his rivals have been quick to pounce.”
For two days, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been embroiled in scandal after former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould testified before the House of Commons Justice Committee that he pressured her to back off a bribery investigation into an engineering company. The liberal networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) have kept the scandal off their morning and evening news shows. But on Thursday, CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News pounced on Benjamin Netanyahu’s impending indictment.
During Monday’s edition of Morning Joe, the panel tried to make sense of why President Trump has decided to pick a fight with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau; apparently not believing the stated reason of trying to negotiate better trade agreements. When host Joe Scarborough brought up the President’s characterization of Trudeau as meek and weak, panelist Eugene Robinson suggested “He does that when he’s feeling insecure, when Trump is feeling insecure. And so it is youth? Is it the fact that he's a pretty good looking guy?”
I have to give some credit to Showtime’s Our Cartoon President. It’s the one show that would probably be more obnoxious to watch than the Oscars. That being said, we still have to deal with yet another insufferable take on our current administration from the people who still think “bigly” is funny. This latest escapade involves worshipping at the altar of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau…and the Oscars.
Canada, continuing to add to its reputation as the land of sensitivity training, is about to make its National anthem abide by the dogma of inclusivity.
Barack Obama is gone and the liberals at Rolling Stone need another dreamy leftist to fawn over. Apparently, the magazine has found one in Justin Trudeau, Canada’s Prime Minister. The August 10 issue is beyond effusive, describing the politician as “seductive” and “goddamned beautiful.” The various headlines give a small indication to the Trudeau love in the article. The print edition enthuses, “Justin Trudeau: Why Can’t He Be Our President?”
The National Governor’s Association (NGA) conference is set to take place this weekend in Providence, Rhode Island featuring a speech from Canadien Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The leftist state is clearly excited, seeing as how The Providence Journal spent the first 80 words of its lead story for Friday’s print edition touting Trudeau’s rear end.
When MSNBC contributor and Daily Beast foreign editor Christopher Dickey appears to fill in MSNBC viewers on European politics, it's generally not long before his contempt for conservatives is made obvious. On Saturday's MSNBC Live, Dickey tagged right-wing French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen as a "crypto-fascist" and recalled that the French public believe President Donald Trump is "nuts." By contrast, Dickey fawned over "progressive" candidate Emmanuel Macron as an "Obama-like" "moderate" who was "thoughtful" enough not to "try to capitalize" on the most recent terrorist attack in Paris.
