The View co-host Joy Behar defends Democrats to the bitter end, except it seems, if that Democrat believes Republicans should be treated with respect. Behar attacked Rep. Tulsi Gabbard when she came on the show Wednesday for daring to appear on “state TV” Fox News, as Behar put it, but Gabbard pushed back against Behar’s nasty attacks.
Tuesday on The View, the liberal hosts adamantly defended the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry as an act of patriotism, as co-hosts Abby Huntsman and Meghan McCain complained that both parties were putting party before country. The argument came up as the co-hosts were bashing FNC host Laura Ingraham and guest John Yoo for questioning the loyalty of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who is set to testify against President Trump today over that July phone call with Ukraine’s president, which Democrats hope to impeach Trump over.
A new wrestling league is being promoted during TV coverage of Major League Baseball's post-season. The ad promises more action, more spectacle and includes women as well as men grappling with each other. I have two candidates for their consideration: Hillary Clinton and presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii). Last week Clinton accused Gabbard of being a “Russian asset” as she offered new excuses beyond the real ones for why she lost the 2016 election.
Appearing twice in as many days on CNN, The Hill’s Rising co-host and former MSNBC host Krystal Ball attempted to breakthrough the CNN machine and their establishment crowd by calling out Hillary Clinton for referring to 2020 Democrat, Congresswoman, and Hawaii Army National Guard Major Tulsi Gabbard as a Russian asset. Further, Ball attempted to make the argument that if droves are repeatedly accused of being Russian assets or ideas or campaigns are deemed Russian-backed, then nothing is. Unfortunately, CNN’s Zuckerbots weren’t interested in this point of view.
Looks like Hillary Clinton has an asset deep within the bowels of MSNBC. On Morning Joe, former Hillary campaign aide Adrienne Elrod, now an MSNBC contributor, vigorously defended Hillary's attack on Tulsi Gabbard, in which the failed 2016 presidential candidate alleged that the Russians were "grooming" Gabbard to be a third-party candidate. Elrod claimed that Hillary is "giving a very valid, very important warning," and went on to assert:
Any rational person who listened to Hillary Clinton’s recent suggestion that Congresswoman and combat veteran Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) was a Russian plant in the 2020 election understood it to be the ramblings of a person unglued. But on Friday, CBS Evening News touted Clinton’s baseless smears by calling them “extraordinary” and “stunning”. But come Sunday, CBS had avoided the topic while ABC and NBC were pumping the brakes and, surprisingly, calling Clinton out.
Van Jones slams HIllary Clinton for suggesting that Democrat presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard is a Russian Asset. "She's playing a very dangerous game. Hillary Clinton, if you're concerned about this information and to spread disinformation, that is what just happened."
With all the lamentations of Trump’s divisiveness, one would think that last night’s closing debate question about “civility” and candidates’ friends from across the aisle would be a nice change of pace, or at worst a hokey diversion. Well not for the Hollywood left. Any show of bipartisan civility stands in the way of the leftist agenda and should be cast aside.
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) took a giant whack at the liberal media during Tuesday night’s 2020 Democratic debate, taking issue with debate partners CNN and The New York Times as being overly hostile due to her foreign policy views. And to make things even more interesting, she specifically slammed CNN political commentator Bakari Sellers (without naming him).
Strange political times make for unexpected allies as Democratic primary candidates defend Trump’s right to have a platform on Twitter. Democratic presidential nominee rivals Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii and Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts rejected comments by Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris (D-CA) calling for Trump to be suspended from Twitter.
It hasn’t been a good week for NBC. First, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell had to retract a bombshell claim that Donald Trump’s taxes showed loans co-signed by Russian oligarchs. Now, MSNBC has backed down on an assertion that “children born to U.S. service members outside of the U.S. will no longer be automatically considered citizens. Parents will have to apply for citizenship for their children in those situations.”
After waves of criticism — from accusations of bias to firing employees for their political beliefs — Google has rolled out new internal rules for people of all political stripes. Don’t be political. Recode wrote about Google’s new rules, announced Thursday August 22, which include “restrictions on political expression and guidelines on internal debates about company activity.” The guidelines themselves forbid “disrupting the workday to have a raging debate over politics” and encouraged employees to report violations via a “central flagging tool.”
