On Wednesday night’s Late Show with Stephen Colbert, creepy leftist horror-book writer Stephen King accused Mike Pence of being “creepy.” Not only that, but somehow looking like “the mean doctor on a soap opera” who’s a criminal, like a pimp, or a drug dealer. They know how to make liberals laugh at CBS.
On Wednesday's CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon added his name to the list of liberals sulking over the NFL decision to bar players from kneeling during the National Anthem as he complained that it would "deprive" them of their "First Amendment rights to free speech," and suggested that those who oppose the kneeling will some day realize they were "duped" by President Donald Trump, and that they were "on the wrong side of history" like those who opposed civil rights in 1968. He also concluded the segment by dismissing the practice of playing the National Anthem during games with people standing as "fake pageantry and patriotism" and not "what real patriotism is about."
On Wednesday's MTP Daily, MSNBC host Chuck Todd led his show's panel in fretting over the NFL decision to bar players from refusing to stand during the national anthem, and seemed open to discontinuing the playing of the anthem at games after New York Times Washington correspondent Charlie Savage suggested it.
Laurel or Yanny? The White House produces an amusing video on this topic which ends up triggering Twitter liberals. If you are scratching your head over that question then you probably haven't been on the Web for the past few days. During that time, a viral audio clip has been featured in which a listener will hear either "Laurel" or "Yanny." Two very different sounding words.
During Thursday’s edition of Morning Joe, the panel lost their collective mind over Vice President Mike Pence telling NBC’s Andrea Mitchell that he would “respectfully encourage the Special Counsel and his team to bring their work to completion.” Co-host Joe Scarborough went so far as to compare the Vice President, whom he had previously referred to as a “Hapless Indiana Hoosier,” to Richard Nixon’s first Vice President Spiro Agnew, who had to resign because of corruption charges.
CNN doesn’t usually air clippings of nationally syndicated columnists during the regular news day, but they just had to make an exception on Thursday for Washington Post columnist George Will’s nasty attack on Vice President Pence. In the 3 pm hour, subsitute anchor Brianna Keilar brought on Jake Tapper to savor the "merciless" and "brutal" Will column.
When Vice President Mike Pence sat down for interviews with all three broadcast networks early Thursday morning, just moments after greeting three American detainees who had arrived back in the U.S. after being released from North Korea, he was logically peppered with questions about the Korean peace process. However, unlike her ABC and CBS colleagues, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell only asked a couple questions on the topic before moving on to grill Pence about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
After President Donald Trump spoke to the National Rifle Association convention on Friday, CNN has not surprisingly reacted by bringing on liberal gun control activists and given them a mostly unchallenged forum to promote their agenda and bash gun rights supporters. On Friday night, Anderson Cooper spoke with Parkland student activists David Hogg and Cameron Kasky, and, the next morning, host Christi Paul spoke with Kasky on New Day Saturday.
The reviews are in, and they’re ugly. Comedienne Michelle Wolf’s performance at Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner drew scorn from both sides of the aisle. Conservatives were understandably aghast at Wolf’s vicious brand of humor.
On Monday morning, MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle read a brief suggesting "serious hypocrisy" on the part of the NRA for barring guns from a speech by Vice President Mike Pence because the pro-gun group generally supports allowing law-abiding citizens to bring guns into most public places. It seemed to be lost on the MSNBC host that the Secret Service will be providing security for the event, so the normal arguments for allowing the average person to be armed for self-defense are not as relevant.
On Saturday's AM Joy, MSNBC host Joy Reid addressed reports of a blog she formerly posted on which contained surprisingly anti-gay messages, which led her this past week to claim the website had been hacked and that she had not actually written the comments. But, on her weekend show, Reid backtracked a bit and did not unequivocally deny that she might have written the postings as she oddly stated that "I genuinely do not believe I wrote those hateful things."
For this installment of if the parties were reversed, the Thursday evening and Friday morning broadcast network newscasts refused to cover possible 2020 presidential candidate and Democratic Senator Kamala Harris (Calif.) joking on The Ellen Show about killing President Trump, Vice President Pence, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The Fox News Channel’s Hannity naturally covered it, but the other mention of this sick joke was MSNBC’s First Look, which airs in the 5:00 a.m. Eastern hour prior to Morning Joe.
