During Wednesday’s The Ingraham Angle, host Laura Ingraham pointed out how the media strenuously objects to the use of the word “mob” to describe left-wing protesters but did not seem to mind using the word “mob” at all when describing tea party protesters back in 2009.
It is no surprise that unhinge liberals who have formed screaming mobs targeting Trump administration officials or tackling Republican senators peacefully mowing their own lawns would also give the "finger" directed at the same people or President Donald Trump himself. However what is unusual is that a supposely professional reporter for Politico would be equally as unhinged and full of TDS hatred as to not only glorify such activity but to even angrily justify it.
Such a reporter would be Ben Schreckinger who invokes the "finger" over and over so many times that a reader could be excused for misreading his name as "Schreck-finger." Picture after picture, including a multi-finger Politico illustration at the top, of the "one finger salute" accompany Schreckinger's glorification of vulgarity directed at anyone associated with Trump in an October 10 article titled, "Saluting the Trump administration, not so nicely."
On the Tuesday edition of CNN’s The Lead, political commentator and former Obama administration official Jen Psaki suggested that the President was “almost gleeful and excited about” Hurricane Florence, its size, and possible destruction as if it’s an accomplishment he helped engineer.
El fiscal general Jeff Sessions se sumó a la lista de oficiales republicanos de alto rango cuyo gusto culinario es tema noticioso en Univisión, con el presentador Jorge Ramos reportando como noticia principal del día, el llamado a boicotear un restaurante en Houston tras el chef subir a los medios sociales una selfie con Sessions junto a las palabras “fue un honor atenderle”.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions joined the list of high-ranking Republicans whose choice of food makes the news of the day at Univision, with anchor Jorge Ramos reporting that a Mexican restaurant in Houston faced calls for a boycott after its chef posted a selfie with Sessions on social media stating that it was an honor to serve him.
On New Day Saturday, CNN substitute anchor Martin Savidge let on that he was not as informed as his conservative guest on the issue of children being separated from parents who illegally cross the border when CNN contributor Ben Ferguson recalled that some deported illegals chose not to take their children with them. A befuddled Savidge asked, "How do you know that, Ben? I mean, where does that even -- where does it come from?"
On Thursday, at the direction of President Trump, America’s national security and intelligence chiefs lined up and spoke from the White House briefing room to reassure the country that they were doing everything in their power to combat Russian meddling in our elections. It was something the liberal media had been crying about for a long time, but the liberal media can never be pleased as CNN and MSNBC hosts decried the timing, moving the goal post.
On his show August 1, Fox News host Sean Hannity proclaimed to CNN's Jim Acosta that he would defend him against violence and threats: "I will be the first person to come to your defense if I'm there, any one dares to lay a hand on you." He added that the CNN types don't seem as upset about threats and slurs against Sarah Huckabee Sanders or Pam Bondi or other Trump supporters.
On Wednesday's New Day show, CNN host Alisyn Camerota not surprisingly showed a double standard in pressing conservative CNN contributor Rick Santorum from the left on the issue of separating families who cross the border illegally, while going softer on Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal in a later segment. Camerota not only misinformed Santorum and CNN viewers by claiming that legal asylum seekers are separated from their children, but she also tried to shame the conservative former Senator for blaming the parents for the plight of their children by demanding: "Rick, does that make you able to sleep better at night, to blame the parents?"
On Thursday morning, CNN's New Day show displayed the latest classic example of why journalists should generally not be considered reliable sources of accurate information as the Cable News Network continued to conflate legal asylum seekers who go through the proper procedure with those who cross the border illegally and seek asylum when they are apprehended. And, as Alisyn Camerota interviewed former Obama administration ICE acting director John Sandweg, the CNN host seemed flummoxed that crossing the border into the U.S. without permission is considered illegal even when asylum seekers do it.
As long as they have the media on their side, comedians can actually build a career out of displays of ill-humored ridicule and provocative statements. None have embraced this so well as The Break host Michelle Wolf, who recently took aim at ICE law enforcement officials.
“Summer of Rage,” feminist author Rebecca Traister’s entry for New York magazine, actually attacked the Democratic Party and journalists from the left while defending harassment of Trump officials in public. The online subhead set the tone: “White men are the minority in the United States -- no wonder they get uncomfortable when their power is challenged.”
