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.
Late Tuesday, the President’s State of the Union address and Democratic response ended just shy of 11:00 p.m. Eastern, but MSNBC kept it going live until 2:00 a.m. Eastern on Wednesday. While it’s doubtful you stayed up to watch, you missed some mind-numbingly stupid quotes. Whether it’s suggesting Trump has committed treason or ghoulishly laughing about people fearing MS-13 gang violence, Chris Matthews, Joy Reid, and Ron Reagan succeeded in stooping to the lowest of lows.
To demonstrate just how far down the drain their standards for news and analysis were, CNN spent a couple minutes before the State of the Union Tuesday wondering if First Lady Melania Trump’s outfit was designed to protest the President, her own husband.
Swell, our beloved Hollywood stars are busy crafting their politicized speeches for the Academy Awards program. I'll bet you can't wait. Oscar-nominated English actor Daniel Kaluuya, in an interview with W magazine, opined that racism is more pronounced in America than in Britain. So happy to learn this and can't wait for his upcoming lecture.
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, host Bill Maher made a number of incendiary attacks on President Donald Trump and other right-leaning figures and entities as he called EPA head Scott Pruitt an "eco-terrorist," likened the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency to the "Gestapo," and cracked that First Lady Melania Trump visited the Holocaust Museum to "cheer up" after news broke that her husband might have had an affair with a porn star.
The 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards aired January 21 on TNT and it was all about the ladies, from First Lady Melania Trump, to the #MeToo women. For the first time, the awards show incorporated a host, actress Kristen Bell and a decision was made in advance to only use female presenters. Men were relegated to second class status, only helping to present the nominations of ensemble awards.
The entertainment industry has become obsessed with its offensive speculations on First Lady Melania Trump.
In a new video for comedy site Funny or Die, actress Nina Dobrev played a character called Karolina Petersburg, a “wife coach” for Melania Trump. Throughout the video, Dobrev resorted to harsh humor, with her character even mentioning a “new wife” for the president.
