For some time now, Morning Joe has been consumed by a visceral hatred of all things Trump. Today's show offered up yet two more examples. First, Donny Deutsch claimed "if you know Donald Trump, you know there isn't anyone he wouldn't throw -- he would throw his family under the bus. And I don't say that glibly." Joe Scarborough heartily agreed: "well of course!" A bit later, when Deutsch accused Scarborough of mocking melanoma, Scarborough replied: "I didn't mock cancer. I thought you were talking about your girlfriend, Melanomia."
Sunday's Washington Post Magazine carried a sugary article by freelancer Christina Binkley headlined "She may not acknowledge it, but Nancy Pelosi is a fashion icon." Just a few pages later, the very same Sunday Post Magazine carried a column by Helena Andrews-Dyer attacking the First Lady. It was titled "Melania Trump's miscalculations continue."
On Real Time Friday, host Bill Maher closed his satirical segment “New Rules” by urging First Lady Melania Trump to dump the President, arguing that her doing so would enable President Trump to “implode on his own.” Maher also encouraged Rupert Murdoch’s wife, Jerry Hall, to do the same before describing Fox News as an “axis of evil” and comparing the Trump base to “an army of brain-dead zombies.”
New York Times television critic James Poniewozik is a big fan of the anti-Trump content of the CBS All Access drama The Good Fight.On Monday morning, he tweeted that the show's snarky Schoolhouse Rock-style cartoons are "the best minute of television in any given week." He linked to a YouTube video of a nasty Melania cartoon that appeared in the April 18 episode.
Liberal women like nothing more than to fantasize about First Lady Melania Trump divorcing President Trump. It is beyond their imagination that she is happy in her marriage to President Trump. This fantasy is put to use in the April 18 episode of CBS All-Access’s The Good Fight.
Former model and cover girl turned First Lady Melania Trump hit back at Vogue after its editor-in-chief made her preference for Democrats clear to CNN.
As part of First Lady Melania Trump’s Be Best anti-bullying campaign, she invited Wilmington, Delaware 6th grader Joshua Trump to be one of the guests at Tuesday’s State of the Union. By now you probably figured out that while he shared no relation with the President, Joshua was bullied because they share the same last name. But that gesture rubbed CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon the wrong way during Monday’s Prime Time.
Accountability from the media? Say it ain’t so, Brian Stelter! It’s been a banner couple of weeks for fake news. First there was Buzzfeed’s reckless insistence on unverifiable Trump collusion, and then there was the sick media feeding frenzy over the “racist” Covington Kids that weren’t racist. But there was a third that maybe you haven’t heard about: The Telegraph’s (U.K.) fabricated expose on Melania Trump, for which they’ve since apologized and agreed to pay damages, as it was composed of “a number of false statements.”
The scribes at Yahoo News discovered something far more pressing and their scoop showed up on cellphones from coast to coast on December 26. A fashion writer named Kerry Justich uncovered a national outrage, apparently. Her headline: “Melania Trump gets mocked for wearing Timberland boots while visiting the troops.”
On Thursday, only NBC’s Today show devoted a full report to First Lady Melania Trump slamming the media during a Fox News interview aired Wednesday night. CBS This Morning completely ignored her comments, while ABC’s Good Morning America only allowed a few seconds of coverage.
The Washington Post on Thursday published a nasty, dismissive attack on Melania Trump, mocking the “gaffe”-prone First Lady and insisting she is just “just plain bad at this.” In the kind of attack not seen on other First Ladies (or at least Democratic First Ladies), columnist Monica Hesse tried to make some sort of conversation about the role of the position: “Every time Melania Trump makes another odd gaffe, I can’t help but see it as a useful thing for gender equality.”
The Washington Post displayed its typical tilt in a snide gossip feature on Thanksgiving Day on which celebrity "turkeys" deserve a pardon, like the president pardons turkeys each year. Post "Reliable Source" gossips Emily Heil and Helena Andrews-Dyer made a very predictable list: liberals and anti-Trumpers, pardoned. Trumpers and Fox Newsers, not pardoned. They even put Melania Trump on the Not Pardoned list.
