For someone who's supposedly anti-bullying, Dan Savage sure likes to bully conservatives and Christians a lot. In his latest “Savage Love” podcast, the liberal gay activist went on a tirade against First Lady Melania Trump, calling her “ugly on the inside,” and a host of other names, according to TheWrap.
It appears “feminists” are choosy when it comes to the type of woman they decide to rally behind and defend. Then again, it’s when it comes to the view of Heather Schwedel and her Slate post “When Melania Trump Is Thanking You for “Support[ing] Women,” Something Is Very Wrong.” A little backstory. Last week, The New York Times scolded one of their reporters for calling First Lady Melania Trump a “hooker.”
Do rape “jokes” ever count as comedy? Apparently they do when Trump is involved. Liberal Hollywood writer and producer of films like Bridesmaids and Anchorman Judd Apatow actually compared living with Trump as President to getting raped, during a stand up comedy show in Los Angeles Saturday. Apatow, like many in Hollywood, seems to be unusually upset with the election calling him a “madman” and a “sociopath” in an previous unhinged rant.
When it comes to Melania Trump, the liberal media are playing a game of words.
The New York Times scolded one of their own for having the audacity to refer to First Lady Melania Trump as a “hooker.” The disparaging remark came from a reporter who happened to be sitting beside supermodel and actress Emily Ratajkowski at a New York Fashion Week event. Ratajkowski did not appear amused and made the reporter’s remarks known by posting a series of tweets. In one tweet, she called the "gender-specific" comment “disgusting sexist bull---t.” The Times agreed it was "completely inappropriate."
Robin Givhan, the liberal political columnist who plays fashion writer at The Washington Post, dominated the front of the Style section on Friday with a question: Can a fashion designer in good conscience agree to dress Melania Trump? Givhan argued that blacklisting the new First Lady is a good way to show a social conscience. The Trumps can buy off the rack, so it’s not really a blacklist. Givhan said dressing the First Lady – especially for Inauguration Night, has always been an honor, until Donald Trump inspired “new waves of racism and violence.”
Along with the unpredictable ladies from The View, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews can almost be guaranteed to make daily appearances on the pages of NewsBusters. Whether it’s making inappropriate statements or coming up with asinine names for conservatives, Matthews has provided decades of entertainment for those on the right.
All this week, NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of 2016. Today, brace yourself for some the dopiest news media quotes of 2016 — everything from claims that Melania Trump’s white outfit at the Republican Convention was proof of her husband’s racist agenda, to a journalist committed to raising her cats as “gender neutral,” to Brian Williams’s expert commentary telling viewers “exactly” which vehicles Cubans would rather have for transportation.
Celebrities are getting desperate after the Trump victory. Leftist actress Olivia Wilde –a huge Clinton supporter –believed her hair resembled Melania Trump’s and decided to debut a new haircut on Instagram with the hashtag, “#nomoremelaniahair.”
People magazine reported that because they had the same length of chestnut brown hair with highlights at the end, and often styled it the exact same way — with long, loose face-framing waves, Wilde believed she had “Melania Trump” hair. As if anyone without a huge ego would notice “hair twins.”
Media Research Center director of media analysis Tim Graham joined the Monday edition of Fox Business Network’s Cavuto: Coast to Coast to discuss Sunday’s American Music Awards (AMAs) and Graham blasted the liberal celebrities mocking President-elect Donald Trump and wife Melania Trump for “doubling down” on the fact that they’re not in touch with the American people.
After fashion designer Sophie Theallet declined to dress Melania Trump for ideological reasons, most media outlets failed to draw the perfectly obvious parallel. Why was this action acceptable if those of countless Christian bakers, florists and photographers were not?
On Monday morning, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC dedicated varying amounts of time to Sunday’s American Music Awards (AMAs) but only footnoted supermodel Gigi Hadid pretending to mock First Lady-to-be Melania Trump’s plagiarism of a Michelle Obama speech using Mrs. Trump’s Eastern European accent.
