New on April 22: President Trump is a “wannabe gangster,” actor Robert De Niro charged on Friday’s Late Show with Stephen Colbert. He’s a “D.D.,” the star of the Godfather movies mused, “a disappointed dunsky. That’s what he is. He’s a dumbbell, in other words.”
CBS used Earth Day 2019 to hype higher taxes as a way of fighting global warming. The entire second hour of This Morning was devoted to climate change and the environment. On the same show, current co-host Gayle King proudly played archival footage of Walter Cronkite in 1970 promoting Earth Day alarmism: “A day set aside for a nationwide outpouring of mankind seeking its own survival.”
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Monday’s Fox & Friends and responded to the latest insults from ever-bitter CNN political analyst and American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryan, who had stated on Thursday that Sanders “can’t” be “trust[ed]” and quipped that she should have her head “lopp[ed]....off.”
The journalists on Monday's Morning Joe offered very little push back to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio as he appeared to push his city's own version of the Green New Deal (GND). Co-host Joe Scarborough began asking "What are you doing" and how would New York's effort "provides a road map for Democrats and independents and some progressive or forward thinking Republicans nationwide?"
Another day and another 2020 Democrat with a high profile media spot to announce a presidential bid. This time, Good Morning America co-host George Stephanopoulos on Monday pushed Congressman Seth Moulton to be more aggressive in supporting impeachment. Stephanopoulos also appeared to minimize Moulton’s military service. The Congressman cited his experience in the Marines (Moulton was awarded two Bronze Stars over four tours of duty in Iraq). Stephanopoulos touted his patriotism and the GMA host waved this away: “You're a patriot, but there are 18 other patriotic Democrats in the race as well. You're the 19th official candidate. What sets you apart?”
With the focus of the discussion on the Mueller report shifting from collusion to obstruction of justice, some in the media are just as convinced that President Trump obstructed justice in addition to having colluded with the Russians. Their proof that Trump is guilty of obstruction is in his behavior, because innocent people do not act the way Trump has acted. One of these media personalities is MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, who made the charge during Monday's Morning Joe.
When Hollywood desperately tries to normalize non-binary gender fluidity to television audiences, usually the character is an adult. In the April 21 episode of NBC’s Good Girls, the non-binary character is a tween.
There’s just never a decent break when it comes to Madam Secretary. Not content to ruin the day before Christmas Eve by pandering on illegal immigration, CBS’s political series aired its season 5 finale with white nationalist terrorism, Russia conspiracies, and climate change on Easter Sunday. Looks like liberals will never learn from November 2016.
MSNBC host and notorious hate-monger, Joy Reid was excited Sunday morning, during AM Joy, as reporter Mike Viqueira came on with “breaking news”. Special Counsel Robert Mueller was spotted leaving church. “This is, you know, what some people would characterize as an ambush interview of a man coming out of Easter services at a church,” he admitted. “Some passersby weren't happy that we were doing that.”
It might be safe to say that NBC political director Chuck Todd was invested in or, at least, very eager to have Democrats start actively chasing down President Trump via impeachment. After seemly trying to goad Congressional Democrats into starting an impeachment case earlier on Sunday, Todd grilled Congressman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) during Meet the Press on why he and party leadership had not done more to get rid of Trump.
NBC political director Chuck Todd lamented the “real dilemma” Congressional Democrats had on their hands following the Special Counsel finding no collusion by the Trump campaign with Russia. During NBC’s Sunday Today, Todd opined about how the Democrats had to decide whether or not they wanted to chase their dreams of impeachment, and come to terms with the “unintended consequences” for each scenario.
You can’t make this stuff up. So here we are, days before Easter, and Notre Dame, one of the most iconic cathedrals on the planet, almost burns to the ground. As this is written there is still an investigation into the exact cause. But suffice to say the horrific sight of the toppling spire as the cathedral was engulfed in flames stirred sentient people everywhere.
