Given the ongoing anti-Trump onslaught in late-night television, it should come as no surprise that Republicans and Democrats have very different perspectives on how political content is used in those “comedy” shows, whether they’re on the mainstream networks or cable TV. According to a recent survey, 54 percent of Democrats said they watch late-night talk shows, compared to 26 percent of Republicans. Also, Democrats were far more likely than those in the GOP to say they like it when late-night hosts discuss politics or personal political views.
ABC and NBC on Monday skipped a brewing scandal over how 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand allegedly mishandled a sexual harassment case in her Senate office. Only CBS This Morning covered the story (for a scant 49 seconds). Co-host Norah O’Donnell briefly explained, “Politico says a female aide to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand resigned last summer in protest over the handling of her sexual harassment claim by Gillibrand’s office."
Going “green” will require a lot of green, apparently. Two U.S. legislators have a proposal designed to require substantial changes to every building in the U.S., create rail “at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary,” replace all “combustion engine-vehicles” within a decade, and guarantee everyone a “job,” higher education, “healthy food,” and much more.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is facing a series of interviewers pressing her to account for being "too conservative" on immigration when she was in the House of Representatives. It happened on ABC yesterday, and it happened on CNN's State of the Union. Jake Tapper pressed her from the Left, but at least put a Trump needle in there:
On ABC's This Week, host Martha Raddatz began the program with Democrat presidential aspirant Kirsten Gillibrand, but never asked her a single question about the Women's March controversies over anti-Semitism, even though she spoke on Saturday at a Women's March event in Des Moines. But Raddatz pressed Sen. Jim Lankford (R-Okla.) to denounce a viral video that alleged to show Catholic teenagers in MAGA hats harassing a Native American man beating a drum...she even blamed this alleged hate crime on Donald Trump's tone against Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
Liberal CBS host Stephen Colbert is quickly becoming the home of choice for 2020 Democrats announcing they are running for president. On Tuesday’s Late Show, Colbert went so far as to hold hands with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand as he excitedly wondered, “So I'm just curious, do you have anything you would like to announce?” There were no tough questions. Quite a contrast to when the host grilled actor Kevin Hart last week about years-old politically incorrect comments, telling the comic star “It’s my show, I’ll do whatever the f**k I want.”
The Washington Post Fact Checker is constantly slinging its Pinocchios at Donald Trump, calling him out for lying here, there, and everywhere. But when a liberal Democrat presidential aspirant like Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand messes up, curiously, somehow the Pinocchios get stuck and won't come out of the box. On November 15, Fact Checker Glenn Kessler wrote a piece titled "Gillibrand's cascade of misfired employment statistics." She admitted error....so no Pinocchios for your political record.
Carmen Yulín Cruz, la radical y separatista alcaldesa de San Juan, Puerto Rico, aprovechó al máximo la invitación extendida por la senadora Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) para viajar a Washington y presenciar el discurso del Estado de la Unión del presidente Donald Trump. Al salir, deja atrás una madeja de hipocresías, y nos vuelve a recordar que la prensa falló en escudriñar a su nueva querendona anti-Trump.
Carmen Yulín Cruz, the radical separatist mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, made the most of her visit to President Trump's State of the Union speech as a guest of Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). In her wake, she leaves behind some rank hypocrisy and yet another reminder that the media failed to vet its newest anti-Trump darling.
Monday on ABC’s The View, Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.) fielded questions that were a mixture of softballs and tough questions from the panel. The only co-host to ask the Democrat politician about Hillary Clinton’s latest scandal was Meghan McCain, who pressed Gillibrand to weigh in on her party’s former presidential candidate decision to keep an accused sex harasser on her 2008 campaign.
The New York Times penned an earnest hymn to the Democrats’ latest feminist presidential hope, the newly “progressive” heroine Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York. Shane Goldmacher, recently of Politico, and Matt Flegenheimer, a familiar byline at NewsBusters, launched Gillibrand’s potential 2020 campaign (joining previous Times feminist presidential hopefuls, Sen. Kamala Harris and Sen. Elizabeth Warren) from the front of the Sunday National section, under the large-type, incredibly sycophantic headline “Senator’s Star Shines as Nation Unites Behind Her Cause -- Gillibrand, Long a Champion of Women, Stays Out Front in a Cultural Reckoning.” Keep in mind that’s a headline in the paper’s News section.
What is the matter with these people? This has been discussed elsewhere, but with more of the same nonsense since the subject of one of the latest presidential tweets will not go away, let’s continue. Here is the now-famous tweet. (Actually, there are now a ton and a half of famous Trump tweets but this is one of the latest:
