Need more evidence that there are two Americas? Here: Left-wing hatred of Melania Trump is inversely proportional to flyover admiration for the first lady. In just the last month, late-night clown Jimmy Kimmel mocked Trump's Slovenian accent, CNN contributor April Ryan attacked her as "not culturally American," former Hillary Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines derided her genteel presence at former first lady Barbara Bush's funeral, and horror writer Stephen King snickered at her hospitalization this week for kidney surgery.
Trump Derangement Syndrome can really take a toll on people. Unfortunately, that was evident on Monday’s CNN Tonight as CNN political analysts and White House Briefing Room rabble-rousers Brian Karem and April Ryan hijacked a segment meant to discuss First Lady Melania Trump’s surgery to whine about the President’s tweeting habits and his refusal to hold press conferences.
Arguably it is the single most laughable thing that liberals do -- piously ooze purported concern for babies while otherwise elevating abortion on demand to a sacred right that must be defended at all costs. No leftist in media better evokes this perverted dynamic than MSNBC's clownish master of smarm, Rachel Maddow. Her most recent example might well have set a record for cringes among conservatives who comprise a sliver of her audience.
Stephanie Ruhle lost her grip on reality Tuesday morning when she attempted to draw a contrast between First Lady Melania Trump’s new “Be Best” initiative for children and President Trump’s policies. The MSNBC host’s diatribe featured the absurd claim that enforcing existing immigration laws and cutting taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood would hurt children.
First Lady Melania Trump held a White House gathering in the Rose Garden on Monday to launch her new ‘Be Best’ campaign focused on the well-being of children, the opioid crisis, and the positive usage of social media. Of course, the liberal media can’t let a good opportunity to bash the President go to waste. Instead of focusing on the First Lady’s initiative, ABC spent twice the time in their report questioning her marriage amid the Stormy Daniels saga. And on NBC, they spent more time talking about how hypocritical it was for her to care about cyberbullying considering who her husband was.
Joy Behar took a nasty shot at Melania Trump on Thursday’s The View and token conservative Meghan McCain fired back, deriding her liberal co-host as “so mean.” The women were discussing the latest on Stormy Daniels. Behar mocked: “Today is Melania's birthday. Happy birthday, Melania.”
CBS Evening News ended Tuesday’s program with a report highlighting that night’s state dinner at the White House and the behind-the-scenes efforts of First Lady Melania Trump to pull it off. But in the middle of the segment, reporter Jan Crawford pointed out what many considered a blatant double standard from the media, in that Mrs. Trump has been on the cover far fewer American magazines when compared to Michelle Obama.
Here’s another example of something that would never have happened on CNNN when Barack Obama was living in the White House. On Tuesday afternoon, CNN Politics Reporter and Editor-at-Large Chris Cillizza spent several minutes picking apart a picture of President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania, French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte as they stood on a balcony during a meeting that was held at the White House.
On Wednesday’s The View, the ABC crew assaulted the irony of Melania Trump taking up the cause of cyber-bullying, when President Trump’s tweets are routinely described as bullying. "I don't think she's the right messenger for cyber-bullying because she can't seem to control it in her own home," Sunny Hostin said. "She's the wrong messenger for cyber-bullying but she’s the wrong messenger for everything almost because of his behavior."
The March 11 episode of Showtime’s Stephen Colbert "comedy" Our Cartoon President, titled “Media Strategy,” was all about President Trump’s war with the mainstream media, with a side story about First Lady Melania Trump’s goal of having an expressionless face to avoid rolling her eyes in public when Trump lies and over-exaggerates. No, really. That was the show.
As NewsBusters has often reported, people in President Donald Trump’s administration are not fond of the “Fake News” produced by CNN. Judging from a statement made by CNN Tonight host Don Lemon on Wednesday's show, that feeling is mutual and even extends to the Fox News Channel.
Showtime describes their new "workplace comedy" Our Cartoon President from executive producer Stephen Colbert as a “hilarious look into the Trump presidency.” Spoiler alert: this show is not hilarious, unless maybe you have Trump derangement syndrome or have extremely low standards for comedy.
