Omarosa Manigault Newman
The season premiere of NBC’s hit show This Is Us aired Tuesday, September 26, and it was as fabulous as always, trending on Twitter as the social media platform included a box of tissues emoji for every This Is Us hashtag tweeted.
In the episode airing June 25th, Comedy Central’s Legends of Chamberlain Heights struck a blow against white appropriation with a smack at Rachel Dolezal along the way. “Chocolate Milk” deals with the white character Milk’s obsession with appropriating black culture and he looks for a way to become black – at least on the outside.
On Monday afternoon, CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta became absolutely unglued, expressing deep anger and horror at the Trump White House following the White House daily briefing that was conducted without audio or video to show viewers on orders from the White House.
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's The View on ABC, rapper Tip "T.I." Harris smeared President Donald Trump as "the poster child for white supremacy" as he complained about several black celebrities who have embraced the Republican President. Harris: "What about addressing the disrespect and disregard for our community that was done? And what about him being the poster child for white supremacy and standing for the people who look to devalue our lives?" Liberal co-host Joy Behar then hyperbolically injected: "And destroy the world."
For all of its shortcomings and limitations, one very useful benefit of Twitter is that it has exposed the breathtaking ignorance of so many supposedly well-educated journalists. A recent stunning example involves April Ryan, who, after the first two pages of Donald Trump's 2005 federal tax return were illegally revealed Tuesday on MSNBC, tweeted: "So in 2005 @POTUS was not a Billionaire," because "He made in 2005 over 100 million dollars."
Mid-show Friday, The View brought on Trump’s Director of African-American Outreach, Omarosa Manigault to talk about Trump’s plans to help the black community. The conversation quickly turned nasty, with hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin repeatedly hammering Omarosa to defend Trump. But Omarosa wouldn’t let the democratic talking points slide, even attacking the panel for not focusing on “real issues.”
According to Donald Trump’s campaign director for African-American outreach, the liberal media has distorted the president-elect’s views on race and diversity. In a guest column penned for The Hollywood Reporter, Omarosa Manigault, who is now involved in the Trump administration’s national engagement efforts, aimed to debunk the idea that the President-Elect is misogynistic and racist.
Just when we thought we'd heard the last from Keith Olbermann, the former MSNBC bomb-thrower has created an online video series for GQ magazine entitled The Resistance, in which the former sportscaster and political commentator is lashing out at President-Elect Donald Trump as “the man who was elected by a minority” whose actions are “not normal.”
The fire-breathing pundit also targeted former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a close confidante of Trump. Olbermann argued there were “avenues” for economic blow back against Trump supporters like Giuliani, who he said has ties to ride-sharing app company Uber.
It's quite funny in retrospect to remember how the press ridiculed the preoccupation of many people who questioned Barack Obama's eligibility to become and then to be President over the "birther" issue from late 2008 until early 2011.
Now look at who's obsessed. The press refuses to recognize that it has lost an issue it thought could use to bury the presidential candidacy of Donald Trump. They won't let it go, even though that train left the station on September 16. It would be hard to find a more obvious example of this obsession than was seen yesterday at MSNBC, when Chris Hayes refused to talk about anything else with Omarosa Manigault, the Trump campaign's director of African-American outreach.
On Friday's CNN Newsroom, during a segment with two leaders from a predominantly black church in North Carolina that is endorsing Donald Trump for President, host Carol Costello at one point hit them with an over the top comment from the church's Facebook page which compared them to Judas for supporting the GOP presidential candidate. The comment even included a snide comment about the possibilty that Trump wishes to "date his daughter."
Just three days ago, CBS, NBC and CNN all found it newsworthy to wave around copies of the New York Daily News with its obnoxious “F U” cover insult directed toward Ted Cruz. On Sunday, the networks all decided to cover a sophomoric anti-Donald Trump parody from the Boston Globe, even though the slam is appearing more than five weeks after the Massachusetts GOP primary. Since December, liberal newspapers have published obnoxious, over-the-top covers that the broadcast networks immediately pick up as meaningful contributions to political discourse.
While People magazine has long been a pliant propaganda partner for Democratic presidents – they’ve gushed over the Clintons and the Obamas – Donald Trump is being questioned about his similarities to Hitler in an April 11 cover story.
“Who is the real Donald Trump? He's volatile, savvy and, some say, scary,” proclaimed the cover. People senior editor Charlotte Triggs and political reporter/Democrat-publicist Sandra Sobieraj Westfall made Hitler comparisons and complained they got “non sequitur” answers:
