It's ironic that the loudest of Trump haters routinely breach the very civil standards of decency they claim justify their antipathy. Others are just creepily obsessed. I'm not exaggerating. Trump haters from both sides of the political aisle have fretted themselves into a consuming frenzy against the president. Whatever worldview they had, it is now overlaid with a Trump-animus fixation that obscures rational thought. It has slain their civility and subordinated their passion for certain policies.
Rosie O’Donnell and a motley troupe of Broadway actors past and present bussed down from New York City for a protest “show” in front of the White House on Monday (Broadway’s traditional day off) and the New York Times decided the silliness was worthy of the lead National section story slot Wednesday. Reporter-intern Alexandria Yoon-Hendricks’ “A Free Broadway Show Starring Putin, Trump and Jean Valjean” ignored O’Donnell’s unrepentant Trutherism and took her seriously as an anti-Trump voice, though the two had been personally feuding years before Trump’s presidential campaign.
On Monday night, radical left-wing activist and 9/11 Truther, Rosie O’Donnell, joined host Chris Cuomo for an interview on CNN. The eight-minute Rosie rant covered a broad array of topics such as President Trump, the Trump presidency, and also the Trump Administration.
Progressives in the media have no respect for the traditions and structure of the branches of the government. As soon as one issues a decision based on anything but liberal ideology, the world is over.
Talk about a character witness. There was a time before Dan Rather was known as the “disgraced” ex-CBS Evening News journalist. But even before he used phony documents in an attempt to torpedo George W. Bush, Rather had a questionable link to the truth. On May 15, 2001, he proclaimed Bill Clinton an “honest” man, saying, “I think you can be an honest person and lie about any number of things.”
The liberal Twitterverse has been having another meltdown over the U.S. embassy moving to Jerusalem. Now many of them are continuing their narrative of Trump as head of a mob family, whose political ties to Israel, another totalitarian regime, are putting the poor Palestinian people at risk.
Comedienne Michelle Wolf is a hero, according to media and Hollywood figures who are racing to defend her recent outrageous statements, regardless of how the rest of America reacts.
Holy Week is upon us and Easter, the holiest day of the Christian year, is Sunday. NewsBusters readers won’t be surprised to hear that popular culture isn’t kind to Christians, but you may not have seen some of the worst examples to have polluted our television screens in the last year.
In February, the Media Research Center announced a campaign to hold ABC’s advertisers accountable for the anti-Christian bigotry spewed on The View. There, the show’s co-hosts smeared Christians as “dangerous” and “mentally ill.” But The View’s history of bashing people of faith didn’t start in 2018.
If your business plan is to find a dark corner of the internet marketplace and sell kitschy anti-Trump art etched in sadness, then you’re too late. Rosie O’Donnell has beat you there.
As President Trump delivered his State of the Union address on January 30, Hollywood expressed its outrage that Trump actually followed tradition and spoke to the people. Star Trek: The Next Generation actor Wil Wheaton posted before the address: “Tonight, Shitler is going to read a speech filled with lies and falsehoods. He will say things that sound reasonable, but won't mean any of them. Pundits will declare him to be Super Totally Presidential For Real This Time. Do not be fooled. He is a liar, a racist, and a disgrace.”
