Tuesday’s The Lead ended with a discussion about a new book called Kushner, Inc. by Vicky Ward, which alleges that President Trump wanted his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner fired from their positions as senior advisors in his administration. Not surprisingly, CNN host Jake Tapper and his panel were interested in this work of palace intrigue. The segment took an unexpected turn when CNN political commentator Paul Begala called Mr. and Mrs. Kushner “cockroaches” and backhandedly referred to President Trump as a “criminal.”
Appearing as a panel member on Monday's Anderson Cooper 360, longtime liberal CNN commentator Paul Begala acted like a misinformed man who gets all his news by watching too much CNN as he not only made incorrect claims about illegal immigration across the Southern border, but he also contradicted himself on whether there is a "crisis" situation on the border.
Upon hearing that Judge Brett Kavanaugh had the votes be confirmed, a CNN panel at the 4:00pm EST hour responded as you would expect, with hysterical tirades against the “sexism” and “racism” of America, adding that the Founding Fathers would be upset today, and this confirmation would energize women to vote against Republicans at the midterm elections this November.
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, host Bill Maher was, in his words, doing his "greatest hits" in making incendiary comments about President Donald Trump and his family. The liberal comedian suggested that President Trump likes to "talk dirty" about his daughter Ivanka, derided Donald Trump Jr. as "Douchebag Von F**kface," claimed Trump supporters "hate" blacks, and belittled white Trump voters as "f**king crackers."
Prior to his emotional interview with KABC radio anchor Leeann Tweeden, CNN’s The Lead host Jake Tapper briefly grilled former Bill Clinton confidant Paul Begala on the late and sudden examinations on the part of the media concerning Clinton’s sexual misdeeds.
Early Wednesday morning on CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon stood by as his liberal panelists Paul Begala and Symone Sanders defended and even praised the disturbing Latino Victory Fund ad that ran before Tuesday’s gubenatorial election, painting Republicans and Ed Gillespie voters as Confederate flag-loving murderers running over minority children.
On Wednesday night’s Anderson Cooper 360, CNN’s Tom Foreman offered a report on the Clinton-Russia-uranium scandal, and then Cooper turned to the pundits for analysis – or, as you might expect, for two Clinton defenders to dismiss it all as irrelevant old news. Foreman cited the new investigative reporting in The Hill newspaper, and Joshua Green just pretended it was never published.
President Trump was renowned for his prolific and infamous use of Twitter to both aid his message and to stir up controversy. But during Tuesday’s The Lead on CNN, host Jake Tapper tried to link someone else’s Instagram controversy to the President. The controversy was sparked by Louise Linton, the wife of Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, who got into a heated exchange over a comment left on an Instagram photo.
If the Trump-Russia news frenzy has shown us anything, it is the hypocrisy of the left. Wednesday evening, CNN political commentator and former Clinton official Paul Begala took things to DEFCON 1 on Anderson Cooper 360.
This past weekend a fan of President Trump took an old video of Trump participating in fake television wrestling, put CNN’s logo in place of the person Trump was pretending to punch and made a gif out of it. Trump then retweeted the gif, to the media’s dismay. Predictably, journalists took to Twitter to spin this silly photoshopped tweet as a violent threat against all journalists. CNN journalists took it the worst of course, but went overboard with the hyperbolic predictions of whatever significance a silly gif could have.
I oppose the push to remove "The Late Show" comedian Stephen Colbert from the air because of his obscene tirade against President Donald Trump. In fact, I wish the video of his boorish diatribe would go viral. The best remedy against the political left's ongoing crusade to remake America in its own vulgar image is maximum exposure of its irrationality.
On Tuesday's New Day on CNN, during a discussion of President Donald Trump ending his interview with John Dickerson when the CBS host started pressing him about his claims that President Barack Obama had ordered wiretapping against him, liberal CNN political commentator Paul Begala lambasted Trump as someone who makes a worse President than a dog would make.
