On Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, it was the place for conspiracy theories. Appearing as a guest to discuss President Donald Trump, far-left film director Rob Reiner fretted that Trump has "already invaded our country" because of hacking from Russia, and ended up seeming to seriously suggest that the President might either fake or stage a bombing of the U.S.S. Cole to justify a war with Iran.
The far-left celebrity circus came out in full force on a special post-speech edition of Hardball, Tuesday. As if Bill Maher mocking a war widow as a “prop” wasn’t enough, liberal comic Kathy Griffin and director Rob Reiner both hyped impeachment conspiracy theories. Griffin speculated, “I feel like this whole crowd, they are truly going to go down.”
Donald Trump’s term in office is only four-weeks old but he’s got the liberal media and Hollywood losing their collective minds. It’s hard to keep track of all the nasty accusations they’ve made. The following is a collection of the 26 worst outbursts by liberal journalists and celebrities made against Trump’s presidency from his first four weeks in office.
Appearing as a guest on Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, left-wing activist and film maker Rob Reiner condemned President Donald Trump as a "pathological liar" who is "mentally unstable," and declared that "we're looking at a cancerous presidency that we cannot allow to spread," during a discussion of reports that National Security Advisor Michael Flynn had discussed the issue of sanctions on Russia with the Russian ambassador in December.
NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of 2016. Today, we finish the series with some of the most outlandish celebrity quotes of 2016, mostly of the Hollywood elite shaking their pom-poms for Hillary, hyperventilating over the idea that Trump might actually be elected, and crying “racism” or “sexism” when things don’t go their way.
Ultra-liberal Hollywood actor, director, and writer Rob Reiner was at it again on MSNBC’s Hardball Thursday night blasting President-elect Donald Trump as anti-Semitic and when challenged by host Chris Matthews, he went further into the gutter by comparing Trump to “the Jewish police at the Warsaw Ghetto” that said “okay, you know, march through Germany” to the Nazis.
Like Hillary Clinton, Rob Reiner would toss an awful lot of Americans into a “basket of deplorables." Or in Meathead’s case a bunker of Archies. In an interview published on September 8, when asked by The Hollywood Reporter if Archie Bunker, a racist/sexist/xenophobic character from the 1970s sitcom “All in the Family,” would be a Donald Trump supporter. As if you couldn’t guess, Reiner responded, “Absolutely, 100 percent. Trump is from Queens. Archie is born and raised in Queens. They have the same kind of mentality. Archie was a bigot, and the things that come out of Trump’s mouth are totally bigoted.”
Amidst all the overwhelming media coverage gushing over President Barack Obama’s Wednesday night speech at the Democratic National Convention (DNC), there were a few points during MSNBC’s coverage in the early hours of Thursday that couldn’t go by without being chronicled for NewsBusters readers.
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough faced off with Rob Reiner on Thursday's Morning Joe, after the liberal Hollywood producer/writer explained Donald Trump's base of support by underlining that "there are a lot of people who are racist in this country." Scarborough shot back, "Could this not be about working-class Americans being left behind by [the] Republican Party?" Reiner acknowledged that "they're not all racist," but contended that "there's racism in this country that has been submerged for a long, long time....He's unearthed a lot of it."
Actor-director Rob Reiner won “The Celebrity Dumb Ass Award” at the Media Research Center’s 2014 Gala. Last November 1, he told Bill Maher on his HBO show that “Obama right now, where Obama is, is right around where Reagan was, right around where Nixon was. He’s no more left than those Republicans.”
Since the left-wing nonsense coming out of Hollywood can be just as obnoxious as anything you’d find on MSNBC, the MRC’s “Best Notable Quotables of 2013” once again includes our annual Barbra Streisand Political IQ Award for Celebrity Vapidity.
Past winners of this prestigious prize include: actress Jessica Lange in 2002 (“I despise him [George W. Bush]. I despise his administration and everything they stand for.”); The View’s Rosie O'Donnell in 2007 (“I just want to say something: 655,000 Iraqi civilians are dead. Who are the terrorists?”); and actor/director Rob Reiner in 2010 (“My fear is that the Tea Party gets a charismatic leader, because all they’re selling is fear and anger and that’s all Hitler sold.”)
This year’s winners and corresponding videos after the jump.
The Washington Pom-Pom Post is at it again on Sunday with the article “Support for Clinton overflowing in Calif.” The only thing missing was an exclamation point and hearts to dot the I’s. It was “another stage, another overflowing ballroom.”
Post reporter Matea Gold – a recent transplant from the Los Angeles Times – features Hillary mugging in photos with rock star Lenny Kravitz and panel discussions with Rob “Meathead” Reiner. Everywhere she goes, liberals pile on to create a “Hillary Effect” for the next campaign:
