Family Guy proved it is possible to put so much anti-Trump hysteria into one half hour to the point where it hurts the final product in the 11th episode of the show’s 17th season on Sunday night, titled “Trump Guy.”
Conservatives note that an avowed anti-Semite like Louis Farrakhan maintains a Twitter account while a gaggle of conservatives no longer do. Think Anthony Cumia, Owen Benjamin, Roger Stone, Sabo, “Gay Patriot” Bruce Carroll, Gavin McInnes and Laura Loomer. Former Republican candidate Jesse Kelly became the most recent example.
During Tuesday’s edition of The View, co-host Joy Behar described President Trump as “the only President who has his own TV channel in history,” adding “Nixon didn’t have it, so he has Fox News and Fox will just back him up.” Not surprisingly, two of the other co-hosts on The View, who once worked at Fox News, strongly objected to Behar’s characterization of the network as a pro-Trump echo chamber.
On Sunday's Kasie D.C. show, MSNBC host Kasie Hunt devoted a segment to fretting over the use of convicted murderer Willie Horton by George H.W. Bush during the 1988 presidential campaign as the group complained that "dog whistle" campaigning has gotten worse with Donald Trump as President.
In what was supposedly a “comedy” act to close out the latest episode of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, the female cast members got together to sing their rendition of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You”. But the person they had their eye on was Special Counsel Robert Mueller, or, at least a report that would put Trump in jail. Because, according to the SNL cast, “the only other option is a coup. Straight Africa.”
While not a direct comparison, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews invoked President Trump alongside murderous Iraqi dictator and executed war criminal Saddam Hussein, wondering to former Obama-era U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance if the President “has an escape route” concerning possible legal perils as a result of the Mueller probe.
CNN political commentator Tara Setmayer has been a diehard Never Trump while supposed still claiming to be a conservative, Republican, or something like that. But like almost cable news Republicans, she’s lurched leftward. On her October 30 podcast, she hypocritical lectured listeners that “words matter” and “we have to be better” while bashing Fox News for being a network that “jerks the President off every single day” and is filled with “political masturbation.” She also suggested that anyone who supports the President or any of his policies might as well support murderous drug dealers.
A few segments before his unhinged rant suggesting prayer should be outlawed concerning tragedies like the California bar shooting and that gun rights don’t come from God, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews showed his disdain for the President and acting Attorney Matt Whitaker by screeching out of the blue at friendly panelists. This bizarre tangents came to a boil when he didn’t so much ask a question of The Washington Post’s Robert Costa as he did blurt out that Trump has “got steel [balls] to pulls this off” by firing Sessions and replacing him with Whitaker.
The female co-hosts of ABC’s The View are certainly no strangers to controversy, but on Thursday, the panelists turned their attention from mostly liberal topics to criticizing Twitter for allowing numerous harsh posts to remain on the social network website. The discussion took a deeply personal tone when conservative co-host Meghan McCain described what she went through when a doctored photo invaded her grief after her father -- Arizona Senator John McCain -- passed away in late August.
During Friday’s edition of Andrea Mitchell Reports, the MSNBC host went after the President for praising Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and suggesting he would make a good Prime Minister. Johnson resigned earlier in the week due to his disapproval of May’s “Brexit” strategy. Johnson, unlike May, vocally supported the June 2016 referendum where voters ultimately chose to leave the European Union. Mitchell asked Former US Ambassador Nicholas Burns “when have we last seen an American President interfere in a British election or any overseas election of an ally?” Burns didn't answer, because the answer isn't pleasing to Mitchell.
On his 11th Hour show on MSNBC on Thursday night, disgraced former NBC anchor Brian Williams suggested Donald Trump's pardons had a "mob movie" feel. Imagine Brian saying that about Bill Clinton's pardons, or Barack Obama's.
