While the media has long claimed that Trump was threatening violence against journalists by calling out fake news, actual threats from their own anti-Trump circles often gets ignored. Case in point: Never Trumper and favorite cable news guest Rick Wilson’s sick tweet against the First Lady, Wednesday.
Feminists have spent the last week mourning Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s failed presidential bid. The Massachusetts Senator had a plan for everything, they cried. Only sexism could explain her shocking fall from front runner to also ran status. She wasn’t “likable” enough, sexist reporters alleged. What else could explain her failure?
Yahoo News is spreading around one of the silliest British tabloid stories you can find. It's headlined "Trump and his entourage fail to eat anything from special vegetarian menu prepared for them on India trip." Tim Wyatt's story for the Independent (U.K.) started out waffling: "Donald Trump and his entourage reportedly failed to eat a single item of a special vegetarian feast prepared for him during his trip to India."
A day after conservative talk radio host and icon Rush Limbaugh announced that he had been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer, Limbaugh and wife Kathryn were in Washington as guests of honor in First Lady Melania Trump’s box during President Donald Trump’s Tuesday evening State of the Union Address. In addition to addressing Limbaugh directly, Trump surprised Limbaugh and the audience by revealing that not only would Limbaugh receive the Presidential Media of Freedom, but that it would be done immediately.
Once upon a time, the New Republic was a respected journal of political thought. The latest hilarious example of how absurd that magazine has become was in the December 19 article in which writer David Roth indulged in his extreme Trump Derangement Syndrome by going into uncontrollable fits of outrage over a video of less than a minute in which Melania Trump displayed this year's White House Christmas decorations.
Remember earlier this month when Democratic impeachment witness Pamela Karlan attacked the Trump family? She testified that even though the “President can name his son Barron, he can't make him a baron.” Later that day, Karlan apologized for her caustic remark. However, she’s not the only person who wants to take on Trump’s 13-year-old son. Screenwriter Nicolas Curcio is looking for someone to produce his unused script entitled Barron: A Tale of Love, Loss & Legacy in which the child tries to sabotage his father’s presidential ambitions in 2016.
Washington Post "gender and society" columnist Monica Hesse is a lot like her colleague Robin Givhan, the fashion columnist. It doesn't matter what their supposed beats are. They coo over liberal women and brutalize the conservative women. Hillary is a gift to America. Melania is like "a garage-sale lampshade."
The Washington Post has become the Mean Girls of the nation’s capital, going after First Lady Melania Trump’s Christmas fashion sense, calling it “ridiculous” and indicative of “aloofness.” Gosh, why would anybody want to be aloof from the bitchy high schoolers at The Post?
During the 2016 convention, New York Times fashionista Vanessa Friedman thought Hillary's white was right. “In her white suit, with her white crew neck underneath, Mrs. Clinton looked supremely unflappable: perfectly tailored and in control,” she gushed. “Not a hair out of place (but some hair nicely waved). The kind of person who could carry the nuclear codes with aplomb.” But how that Hillary-bashing Tulsi Gabbard's wearing white, it's now symbolidzing "somewhat combative righteousness (also cult leaders).... It has connotations of the fringe, rather than the center."
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.”
