On Monday's CNN Tonight, CNN political commentator Angela Rye was the latest liberal analyst to claim that President Donald Trump disproportionately targets black women for ridicule. And on Friday, CNN commentator John Avlon similarly suggested Trump was targeting black women. Even though, as previously noted by NewsBusters, there are many white men and white women who have also been attacked by the President according to a list compiled by the New York Times.
As the left mobilizes mobs to tear down confederate statues (and peace monuments) from city-to-city, it was only a matter of time before they would be going after our Founding Fathers. On CNN Thursday morning, liberal analyst Angela Rye argued that our nation’s first president was as detestable as Robert E. Lee because he was a slave owner. “To me, I don't care if it's a George Washington statue or Thomas Jefferson, they all need to come down,” she said before ranting about America’s “very violent past.”
CNN liberal commentator Angela Rye refused to acknowledge that Donald Trump was her president on Monday morning’s New Day. During a heated back-and-forth discussion on the Russia investigation (what else?) with Trump’s former adviser, Congressman Jack Kingston, Rye repeatedly called Trump “your [Kingston’s] president.”
No, that headline is not a joke. Just before midnight between Tuesday and Wednesday, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon swooned that Georgia Democratic congressional candidate Jon Ossoff sounded just like former President Barack Obama when addressing supporters after Tuesday’s special election.
Barack Obama isn’t even in office anymore but Democrats are still pining for their long lost savior. Liberal commentator and former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus, Angela Rye bemoaned this fact on Anderson Cooper 360 Monday night. After discussing Congressman Devin Nunes’ comments about the investigation into Trump’s wiretapping claims, Rye expressed outrage that the media wasn’t talking about other issues, instead of talking about “something that didn’t happen.”
On Thursday's CNN Tonight, Don Lemon hosted a discussion in which he suggested that black Americans would "lose" in President Donald Trump's budget in spite of Trump asking black voters during the campaign, "what do you have to lose?" As conservative CNN political commentator and Trump supporter Paris Dennard was outnumbered 4-1 -- facing off with two liberals guests, a liberal host and a right-leaning guest who was critical of Trump's budget -- Dennard jousted with Lemon and at one point was admonished by the host to "let other people speak" even though Dennard was not the one speaking at the time.
On Thursday's New Day, CNN personalities Chris Cuomo and Angela Rye demonstrated that there's just no convincing liberals that giving men a right to demand entry into women's restrooms, changing rooms or shower rooms is a bad idea, even if you cite examples of sexual predators taking advantage of liberal access policies to victimize women and girls. During a debate over efforts by the Texas legislature to require people to use public restrooms in schools and public buildings that correspond to their birth gender, both host Cuomo and CNN commentator Rye dismissed conservative CNN commentator Ben Ferguson specifying four examples of men filming women and girls in department stores, with Rye even chuckling about the four examples supposedly being an insignificant number.
Appearing as a panel member on Thursday's Anderson Cooper 360, CNN political commentator Angela Rye tried to be the latest liberal to argue against President Donald Trump's travel ban targeting several Muslim countries on the basis that supposedly no one from those countries has committed a terrorist attack in the U.S. After being called out by fellow panel member Kayleigh McEnany, who cited recent attacks by Somali refugees, Rye then switched to asserting that there have not been any deaths from such attacks in the U.S. as if being wounded does not matter so much.
Throughout the day on Friday, CNN touted video of angry protesters at congressional Republican town halls in Tennessee and Utah to prove that it might be the emergence of a possible “tea party of the left.” In the process, it showed a stunning dose of sudden respect after how they and their media cohorts treated the tea party when it arrived on scene in 2009 and 2010.
As Thursday's CNN New Day covered the horrendous story of a white special needs man being tortured by four black teens in Chicago while they made anti-white and anti-Donald Trump taunts and live streamed the assault on Facebook, CNN co-host Alisyn Camerota fretted that "right-wing websites" like Breitbart, The Blaze, and Townhall are going too far in making the story "political."
CNN's Anderson Cooper was aghast on the Tuesday edition of his program over Donald Trump still regularly posting to Twitter even after being elected president: "When I first heard that he was Tweeting about something that was on this broadcast — a number of Tweets; again, factually-incorrect Tweets...I kept thinking, doesn't he have, like, a briefing book on ISIS to be reading last night?" Kristen Powers replied, "He should have probably been boning up on what's going on...I think it is concerning that he continues to do this."
On Tuesday afternoon, CNN Newsroom expressed discomfort and promptly went into spin mode for Planned Parenthood as host Brooke Baldwin and two panelists shouted down Trump supporter Steve Cortes for alluding to the Planned Parenthood baby parts scandal and expressing support for the Republican push to defund the abortion provider under President-elect Donald Trump’s administration.
