Less than 24 hours after an extremely heated exchange with Republican Congressman Mark Meadows during former Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s testimony to the House Oversight Committee, Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib appeared on CNN’s New Day Thursday, where co-host Alisyn Camerota asked her if she regretted apologizing to Congressman Meadows for effectively smearing him as racist.
Appearing on MSNBC late Thursday morning, left-wing Princeton University professor and network contributor Eddie Glaude hailed Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib as “courageous” for smearing her Republican colleague Mark Meadows as a “racist” during Wednesday’s Michael Cohen hearing. The liberal pundit even accused Meadows of shedding “crocodile tears” in response to the nasty accusation.
On Sunday's Fareed Zakaria GPS, host Zakaria devoted his "Fareed's Take" opening commentary to the recent controversy over Michigan Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar complaining about Jews donating money to political candidates to gain support for Israel. The CNN host admitted there is much anti-Semitism in the Middle East, but blamed Europe for fomenting the sentiment as he also worried that Omar's comments will make it more difficult to criticize Israel in the future.
The headline in the Washington Post read this way: “Film about American Nazis aims to send message to Trump voters with local ad during Sean Hannity’s Fox News show.” Beneath the headline was a photo of a smiling Sean Hannity. The story, in part, read this way, bold print for emphasis mine:
The New York Times’ reaction to the anti-Semitic controversies engulfing two freshmen Democrats shows that “whataboutism” -- trying to discredit an opponent's position by charging them with hypocrisy -- is no longer “the last refuge of scoundrels” but is back in favor. Mark Landler used Democratic-friendly rhetoric to change the subject and tar Trump as the one with the anti-Semitism problem, in “Trump, No Stranger to Jewish Stereotypes, Rejects Ilhan Omar’s Apology.” Sheryl Gay Stolberg’s story, “In Surprise Vote, House Republicans Lift Anti-Semitism to Political Issue,” also had a distinct “Republicans pounce” vibe, casting Omar and Rashida Tlaib as poor, passive victims of cynical Republicans:
There is angst in the Democratic Party over the party’s emerging hostile stance on Israel, and it finally broke onto the New York Times front page on Saturday. “Discord Over Israel Reveals Democrats’ Divide,” on two controversial new Democratic Muslim congresswomen, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota. Both have gotten themselves into controversy with controversial, inflammatory statements about Israel, though the Times and other outlets have often sidestepped the matter. Sheryl Gay Stolberg’s new story makes up for the omission somewhat, though still pulls some punches and focus on Republican pouncing.
Between the Women’s March’s deep ties embracing those with anti-Semitic views and open anti-Semitismof Democratic Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (MN) and Rashida Tlaib (MI), the Democratic Party had a lot to answer for on their side. So, doing what the liberal media seemed reluctant to do, Fox News anchor Bret Baier pressed Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez on the “threads” of hate running through his party.
On Tuesday night, the broadcast network evening newscasts on ABC, CBS, and NBC failed to cover two intriguing headlines that the public deserved to hear about. One pertained to the revelation that a former top FBI lawyer is under criminal investigation for leaking to the news media while the other story was the Democratic National Committee cutting ties with the anti-Semitic friendly Women’s March.
When new Democratic Representative Rashida Tlaib ranted that Congress needs to “impeach the motherf***er” Trump, all three networks covered it. But when the Michigan representative was seen posing and meeting with a pro-Hezbollah activist who thinks Israel has no right to exist, ABC, CBS and NBC were silent. As reported by the Washington Examiner’s Philip Klein, Tlaib appeared with Abbas Hamideh who tweeted, “I was honored to be at Congresswoman @RashidaTlaib swearing in ceremony in #Detroit and private dinner afterward with the entire family, friends and activists across the country. #Palestine.”
Appearing on CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront “for her first national primetime interview,” Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (MI) faced questions Tuesday from the eponymous host about her now-infamous “mother****er” comment about impeaching President Trump, except many of them were sympathetic to Tlaib’s case.
Everyone’s favorite “Bad Motherf*cker” and recurring Quentin Tarantino flick actor, Samuel L. Jackson has just endorsed new Michigan Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib’s use of his favorite expletive. Can this Hollywood crap get any more stupid?
Radical progressive Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) made headlines late last week when video surfaced showing her enthusiastically proclaiming “we’re going to impeach the motherf***er!” And after pushing out a tweet seemingly to question the validity of what was caught on camera, NBC News anchors and reporters laughed about it during Sunday Today.
