Despite all the good news for America this week, like the freeing of American hostages and the low unemployment rate AND the capture ISIS leaders, the ABC panel on Sunday’s This Week was huffing about President Trump ending the Iran nuclear deal. The bitter panelists were up in arms and were making predictions of just more war on the horizon. One even claimed the Trump administration was setting us up for the Iraq War 2.0.
On Sunday, following a week marked by President’s Trump’s multiple flip-flops on gun rights and due process, the panel on ABC’s This Week fortified liberal calls for gun control with one appearing to openly argue for ignoring the Second Amendment and to confiscate firearms.
Never letting a tragedy go to waste, many liberals in the media immediately took to Twitter to blame Republicans for the Parkland High School shooting that took place Thursday afternoon. Several journalists from CNN, MSNBC, ABC and more blasted Republicans who had received donations from the NRA as being responsible for a sick kid’s murderous rampage.
Criticism and speculation swirled over the weekend that Chief of Staff John Kelly was on his way out after it was discovered that the White House had hired, not one, but two alleged domestic abusers. But it all got out of hand during ABC’s This Week on Sunday when former Bloomberg News editor Megan Murphy decried the administration’s hiring practices by berating everyone who wanted to work in the Trump White House as the new chief of staff, regardless of who they were.
“Just because it’s biased, doesn’t mean it’s not true.” That was the assessment from Good Morning America journalists and analysts on Saturday while discussing the intelligence memo released on Friday. Guest Matt Dowd touted the already tired “Al Capone vault” comparison.
Immediately following President Trump’s positive State of the Union address, which ABC complained was “divisive” “gloomy” and “sad,” the same ABC team was still in meltdown mode two hours later on Nightline. But newly instated ABC News contributor Chris Christie was the only one to declare the truth of the matter, that Democrats had become so partisan that there wasn’t “anything” he could’ve said that night to appease them.
Appearing on ABC’s Good Morning America Wednesday morning to review President Trump’s State of the Union address, Chief Political Analyst Matthew Dowd worried that he “didn’t get any sense there was any room for compromise” in the speech and even proclaimed that the nation was as divided today as it was during the Civil War.
Nikki Haley recently criticized a book that started rumors about an affair between her and the president. But she’s the one who needs “integrity,” according to ABC’s chief political analyst.
After beginning the morning by dismissing President Trump’s first official State of the Union address as an event that would be quickly forgotten, the stacked liberal panel on ABC’s This Week was overjoyed that the Democrats had selected Congressman Joe Kennedy III (D-Mass.) to give the party’s response. They were excited about his good looks and his “moral voice,” because if the Kennedys are known for anything it’s a “moral voice.”
As they always do, ABC automatically knew who to blame for the possible federal government shutdown Saturday. ABC's political analyst Matthew Dowd compared the current situation to the Jimmy Carter era, on January 19th's Good Morning America, saying that Democrats had the upper hand with Americans' sympathies, because they didn’t have “control” of Congress or the White House.
The liberal media were experiencing nirvana on Sunday as they continued their nearly non-stop love-fest for the anti-Trump gossip book Fire and Fury by journalist Michael Wolff. It was the same on ABC’s This Week were Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos led a largely liberal panel in fawning over the book even as he speculated that only ‘50 percent’ of the book was actually true.
After ABC began their Sunday morning programming by ignoring the Iranian regime’s brutal murder of two anti-government protesters overnight, the network’s make-believe Republican Matthew Dowd took to This Week and declared that the United States had no moral authority to call them out on their human rights abuses.
