This Christmas, could you please spare a thought for the truly unfortunate: D.C. political journalists deprived of holiday parties surrounded by members of the Trump Administration (whom they despise)? The front of the New York Times Sunday Styles section was a microcosm of self-absorbed journalists indulging themselves over the holidays: “The Pall Before Christmas.” It was written by Shawn McCreesh, previously an editorial assistant to Maureen Dowd and who here shares Dowd’s contemptuous irreverence toward Trump.
The 2020 election is less than a year away, so it’s high time for tv to start badmouthing the Trump campaign. For its part, ABC’s new drama Stumptown finally joins the liberal crowd with its own slam against Kellyanne Conway.
White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway on Thursday got into a contentious battle with Wolf Blitzer when the anchor awkwardly insisted that “there are issues” with her marriage to Trump critic George Conway. Blitzer stumbled, “I just have a final question, a sensitive question, and it’s a political question, it’s a substantive question.” He added, “I don’t want to talk about your marriage. I know that there are issues there.” An incredulous Conway responded, “Did you just say there are issues there?... Why would you say that?”
It’s another week of new sitcom episodes on CBS, so you know what that means! Time for another peek into the strange, liberal mind of the “King of Sitcoms” Chuck Lorre via his egoistic vanity cards. This time, he’s taking shots at Trump’s main allies, claiming that they’ve “surrendered their dignity and integrity,” and “their souls” in exchange for power and prestige.
CNN’s Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer might be viewed as an iconic journalist and bastion of truth, but the Trump era has shown that he’s a liberal pundit who mirrors, say, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. On Tuesday’s show, Blitzer came back from break to insist that voting in support of a House Democrats resolution “condemning the President's racist comments...shouldn’t necessarily be a partisan issue.”
On Joy Reid's MSNBC show, discussing the dust-up between Nancy Pelosi and "The Squad" [composed of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashid Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley] Julianne Malveaux urged her fellow Democrats to unite around their larger objective: "at the end of the day, the goal has to be to get rid of the orange orangutan."
Appearing on MSNBC Wednesday morning, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway hammered the liberal cable channel for its blatant biased coverage of the Mueller investigation over the past two years and called out journalists who repeatedly declared Trump guilty of Russian collusion despite the Special Counsel’s report concluding the opposite.
There they go again.
The Associated Press, Mediaite and CNN are aghast — aghast! ---- that President Trump’s White House Counsel Kellyanne Conway is supposedly playing politics in the White House.
On Sunday's Up with David Gura show on MSNBC, during a panel discussion lambasting White House officials like Kellyanne Conway for pushing "lies" and "propaganda" in their press appearances, the show made an on-screen misspelling that seems unlikely to have been an innocent typo as the chyron misquoted Conway as saying President Donald Trump "commended" neo-Nazis.
No fewer than eight times on his State of the Union CNN show today, Jake Tapper asked Kellyanne Conway whether President Trump's response to Charlottesville was, as he has said, perfect. When Tapper wouldn't drop his hair-splitting over "perfect," Conway eventually had enough, and took a shot at the liberal media: "it looks like you, and others, looking at 2020, are worried that this guy can't be beaten fairly and squarely." Shot back Tapper: "That's beneath you, Kellyanne. That comment is beneath you."
On ABC’s This Week Sunday, guest host Martha Raddatz interviewed Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway; specifically focusing on the conclusions of the Mueller report. Raddatz summarized the President’s reaction to the Mueller report for Conway: “the President says there’s total vindication. Complete exoneration. No collusion. No obstruction.” Not surprisingly, Raddatz wanted to skip right over the “no collusion” part and focus on obstruction.
Dearest readers, spare a thought for the folks at CNN because, as Thursday wore on, they’re having a difficult time accepting reality of no collusion and no charges on obstruction of justice following the release of the Mueller report. Between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Eastern, CNN Newsroom was filed with media statements divorced from reality.
