In light of President Trump’s recent tweets and rallies, the liberal media has decided it is time to take the rhetoric up a notch. No longer is Trump any old racist, he has now earned himself the title of ‘white nationalist’. Filling in for host Lawrence O’Donnell, Joy Reid made sure to make this distinction on Friday night’s episode of The Last Word.
As the media moves into week two of President Trump versus "The Squad," the focus has shifted from Trump's original tweets to "How dare you call The Squad unpatriotic." CNN Newsroom co-host Jim Sciutto has been at the forefront of this goal post shifting and on Monday's show he battled Trump campaign adviser Mercedes Schlapp on Trump's attacks on The Squad.
The View co-hosts kept defending the Democrat “squad” Monday, after the media firestorm surrounding President Trump’s tweets against them refuses to die down. Co-host Sunny Hostin even attributed a fake quote to Thomas Jefferson to hail how patriotic these congresswomen were.
Whoopi Goldberg began the segment with a lengthy diatribe against Trump adviser Stephen Miller for defending Trump this weekend. Reading from a cue card, she began, “You know you’re a racist when":
While NewsBusters has spent a copious amount of words this week on the liberal bias on television this week against the President for his criticism of the squad, a review of The Washington Post showed that it spilled more than its share of ink to defend the so-called “Squad” over the course of 16 print stories from Monday to Friday, ranging from supposedly straight news items to some that actually featured a slightly different font to delineate that change to analysis.
During her noon ET hour show on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell rushed to the defense of the far-left “squad” members of Congress – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley – by falsely claiming that “none of these members of Congress are socialists.” In reality, two of them are members of Democratic Socialists of America while all of them have advocated policies that fit the very definition of socialism.
Liberal CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King gushed over the “impressive,” “passionate,” “committed” “squad” of far-left Democratic Congresswomen: Rashida Talib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley. In an exclusive interview, she encouraged them to explain what it was like to be attacked by Donald Trump. But then something unusual happened. King repeatedly pressed Omar about her anti-Semitic attacks against Jews and Israel.
After Monday’s debut of the CBS Evening News with Norah O’Donnell established that it would be an unquestionable home for liberal bias, night two cemented that as O’Donnell and her team provided more liberal bias, whether it be the President’s “racist tweets,” letting a Democratic donor interview “The Squad,” or blaming an upcoming heat wave to climate change.
Bowing to pressure from the likes of CNN’s Brian Stelter, NBC Nightly News pivoted on Tuesday to condemn the President’s behavior toward Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) as “racist” and, along with ABC’s World News Tonight, shame Republicans for not being as anti-Trump as Democrats.
CNN’s Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer might be viewed as an iconic journalist and bastion of truth, but the Trump era has shown that he’s a liberal pundit who mirrors, say, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. On Tuesday’s show, Blitzer came back from break to insist that voting in support of a House Democrats resolution “condemning the President's racist comments...shouldn’t necessarily be a partisan issue.”
Dissent is, once again, the highest form of patriotism or at least it is according to CNN Inside Politics host John King. During his Tuesday show in discussing the war of words between President Trump and "The Squad," King compared their grievances against Trump and the country to the Boston Revolutionaries of 1773.
Left-wing group Bend the Arc: Jewish Action went on a Twitter rampage over Sen. Lindsey Graham’s, (R-SC), criticism of a group of freshman legislators as anti-Semitic. Bend the Arc is the result of a merger of The Progressive Jewish Alliance and Jewish Funds for Justice which joined forces in 2011. It was founded and funded by George Soros’ son Alexander Soros.
While the big story regarding the broadcast networks on Monday was the launch of the anti-Trump, Norah O’Donnell-anchored CBS Evening News, their competitors weren’t going to be left behind as ABC’s World News Tonight also attacked the President’s behavior toward far-left, radical Democrats as “racist.” NBC Nightly News didn’t quite go as far as ABC or CBS that CNN’s Brian Stelter would have wanted, but they still had some fun moments such as when the head of an illegal immigrant detention center dropped a few truth bombs.
