Liberal Late Show host Stephen Colbert has no problem trashing conservatives and Republicans in the nastiest manner. But when hard-left Democratic Senator Kamala Harris appeared on his show, Thursday, he turned into an excited fan boy. Discussing the California politician’s new book, Colbert gushed, “What makes you happy? Where does your hope come from?”
In a confirmation hearing late last year and a later questionnaire, District Court nominee Brian C. Buescher was assailed for his Catholic beliefs and membership in the Knights of Columbus by Democratic Senators Mazie Hirono of Hawaii and Kamala Harris of California. The incident, which went unreported by the broadcast network news programs, was back in the news Thursday following a rebuke from Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard. Hint, the networks ignored that too.
Appearing on CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront “for her first national primetime interview,” Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (MI) faced questions Tuesday from the eponymous host about her now-infamous “mother****er” comment about impeaching President Trump, except many of them were sympathetic to Tlaib’s case.
Democrat Senator Kamala Harris made the rounds on ABC Tuesday promoting her new memoir and aiding the media in bashing President Trump for addressing the nation tonight about the need for a southern border wall. Though she did not make a formal announcement if she was going to run for president in 2020, the liberal hosts at The View treated her as if she were already a candidate, comparing her to Hillary Clinton and pleading with her to stop President Trump.
On Tuesday’s Good Morning America, the network’s White House correspondent Jonathan Karl sat down with Vice President Mike Pence to grill him about President Trump not backing down on the border wall, laying blame for the government shutdown exclusively on him. Despite Democrats being unwilling to budge on the need for border security, the ABC reporter seethed to Pence that it was Trump’s fault that we were “in this mess.”
Midterms might be long over, but Betomania is still burning hot. O’Rourke is still a darling among actors, comedians, other Democrats, and anyone (read: journalists) who who thinks skateboarding, playing punk rock and fleeing the scene of a DWI accident makes for a compelling political resume. Cries of “Beto for Senate” have effortlessly transformed into “Beto 2020,” and many odds sites suggest he is near the top for the blue nomination.
Under most circumstances, a sitting United States Senator and potential presidential candidate comparing a federal law enforcement agency to the Ku Klux Klan would be major national news. However, after California Democrat and 2020 hopeful Kamala Harris did exactly that during a Senate hearing on Thursday, the broadcast networks decided it wasn’t worth a single second of coverage.
The media loves to award celebrities and politicians for their “bravery” and “courage,” and more recently, their “truth.” Truth in doing what, exactly? Well, if you guessed “towing the leftist line on every single issue without any hint whatsoever of a deviation” then you’re right.
Glamour magazine just unveiled its annual “Women of the Year” edition and it should come as no surprise to anyone that the majority of women featured belong to the rabid leftwing RESIST movement. When the American pop culture moment swirls around open borders, anti-gun sentiment, and all things anti-Trump, you get Hollywood style magazines with Senator Kamala Harris and the gun law kids from Parkland High School getting huge spreads.
Tax and spend liberals are at it again.
Although there were huge benefits to the 2017 tax cuts including a rise in take-home pay for a majority of American wage earners’ and hiring or investment expansions at hundreds of companies, many liberals are calling for tax hikes. Just don’t expect the networks to spell that out for voters.
With a week to go until the scheduled Senate Judiciary Committee hearing to interview Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford, the liberal media were frantically trying to paint the proceedings as misogynistic Republican men beating up on an innocent victim. Both ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News spent a whole segment during their Tuesday broadcasts stoking those fears.
Reacting to former President Jimmy Carter advising Democrats to appeal to independents and “middle of the road” voters in the midterm elections, pundits on Thursday’s Morning Joe tried to think of moderate Democrats who could run for president in 2020. Co-host Mika Brzezinski didn’t quite grasp the term “moderate” as she suggested left-wing California Senator Kamala Harris as an option, promoting laughter from the MSNBC panel.
