When Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough runs out of things to use in slamming President Trump, the MSNBC anchor is more than happy to instead roast someone who is a member of the GOP official’s administration. That was the case on Monday, when Scarborough used an interview of Mike Pompeo by Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace to hammer the secretary of state as “a joke” and “a disgrace” who “made a fool of himself” while lying for the President.
How extreme is Bill Maher? The Real Time host gets really angry when anyone says something nice about Ronald Reagan. And it was six years ago yesterday that Maher melted down, trashing the “race-baiting” two term president as “the man most responsible for our decline.” What set Maher off? Other liberals saying that the current GOP is so extreme, it’s too conservative for even Reagan. On June 7, 2013, he sputtered, “: Ronald Reagan was an anti-government, union-busting, race-baiting, anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-intellectual."
Reacting to yesterday's short-lived meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, the Morning Joe panel hurls a string of insults at President Trump: "stinks, complete idiot, pathetic."
Looking for leverage to get the Democrats to fund a flame-shooting border wall, President Trump promises to refuse to resupply the International Space Station until Democrats agree to the funding in the May 19 episode of Showtime’s Our Cartoon President. Pitting suffering astronauts against the president, media reports cause Trump to begin to lose support. He even loses support from loyal Trump supporters like Sean Hannity, along with Ann Coulter who appears on Hannity’s show.
During Sunday evening’s edition of Life, Liberty & Levin, Mark Levin blasted the report released by Special Counsel Robert Mueller as demonstrating that “our very republic is at stake” because several vital aspects of our nation have “broken down.” The Fox News Channel host pointed to the separation of powers, the rule of law and the media -- which he also described as an “unfree press” -- as being responsible for the nation having “a mob mentality” because half of the people want to “continue the coup” against President Trump.
One of the rotten fruits produced by what passes for today's American education system is the ignorance some young people have about socialism. According to a new Harris Poll given exclusively to Axios, the news and information website, Generation Z (comprised of those born in 1995 or later), “has a more positive view of the word ‘socialism’ than previous generations, and — along with millennials — is more likely to embrace socialistic policies and principles than past generations.”
Ahhhh memories. Here at CPAC this week, the stories abound about President Donald Trump walking away from the Hanoi Summit. Here are a few of the headlines. From the Los Angeles Times: “Art of the retreat: Summit failure further scuffs Trump's dealmaker claims.” From USA Today: “Donald Trump's big fail on North Korea: He didn't prepare and he got played.” From Newsweek: “Has Trump Failed in North Korea? Pyongyang Says it Will Not Give up Nukes Without U.S. Demilitarization.”
This week’s NewsBusters Time Machine looks back at a mammoth PBS documentary on Ronald Reagan that aired 21 years ago this week. The 270 minute film, which aired on February 24,1998, included the usual tropes about Reagan not caring about the poor. But it also seemed to blame the conservative president for the rise of... Donald Trump?
After The Handmaid’s Tale's 2017 Super Bowl commercial was compared to "Trump's America," Hulu came back this year with an even more obvious attack on President Ronald Reagan.
I first met the man who would become America's 41st president in 1968. He was a Houston congressman and I was a young reporter for a local TV and radio station. My first impression was how kind he was to this “kid,” who had just moved to Texas from the Washington, D.C., area and was just starting to learn the “language,” like “fixing to go” and “y’all.” Everyone who worked for George H.W. Bush, or knew him, has a story to tell. I have several.
Appearing as a guest on Sunday's Reliable Sources on CNN, former longtime ABC News reporter Sam Donaldson misleadingly tried to tie Ronald Reagan to the Massachusetts prison furlough program supported by Michael Dukakis which allowed convicted murderer Willie Horton to escape prison and attack others.
On Wednesday's Deadline: White House, liberal MSNBC contributor Eddie Glaude managed to include two myths in his commentary as he repeated a discredited claim that President Barack Obama received "exponentially" more death threats than any other President, and also suggested President Ronald Reagan was "hypocritical" on race as he wrongly claimed Reagan "declared his candidacy" in Neshoba County, Mississippi.
