For much of Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday morning, various CNN and MSNBC hosts and contributors were seen freaking out over Attorney General Jeff Sessions playfully laughing along with audience members as they broke into a "Lock her up" chant at a Tuesday morning speaking event.
For those who follow this author on Twitter, you’ll find that I’m not a fan of Turning Point USA. That said, the liberal media’s fake news machine reared its head on Tuesday when numerous outlets falsely claimed Attorney General Jeff Sessions chanted the infamous “lock her up” chant about Hillary Clinton when prompted by students at their high school conference.
On Wednesday's New Day show, co-hosts John Berman, Erica Hill, and John Avlon took time to fret over a clip of Attorney General Jeff Sessions insightfully pointing out the hypocrisy of liberal elites who have gone wildly over the top in attacking the Trump administration for separating illegal immigrants from their children, as required by law.
After cable news channels CNN and MSNBC made 22 references to Nazi concentration camps and other human rights atrocities during coverage of illegal immigrant detention centers along the U.S. southern border over the past few days, on Tuesday, NBC decided to join in touting the extreme rhetoric. Specifically, the Nazi death camp comparison was repeated four times in three hours, across two of its morning shows.
After making a strong push last week to promote the views of religious liberals to advocate against the Trump administration strictly enforcing immigration laws, Monday saw the liberal Bible-thumping go into overdrive as MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell brought aboard Father James Martin, and cued him up to complain that Trump's immigration policies are "sinful" and to repeatedly attach the word "evil" to the government keeping children in a separate facility while their parents are prosecuted for illegally crossing the border.
Appearing as a guest on Sunday's AM Joy, race-obsessed MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson accused former FBI director James Comey of resenting Attorney General Loretta Lynch for being a "black woman boss," and then went on to accuse Trump administration members of being "terrorists" who "terrorize people into leaving the country" to promote "white nationalism."
Stephen Colbert not surprisingly has attempted to use his Catholic faith to make a political point, and unbeknownst to him, he failed at it. He was referring to the incidents at the border involving illegal immigrants and their children. Colbert called attention to how AG Jeff Sessions defended the government’s actions at the border with a quote from Romans.
On Friday's Velshi and Ruhle show on MSNBC, host Ali Velshi joined in the liberal news network's recent spate of Bible-thumping to justify left-wing policy as he actually took out a large Christian Bible and read from it on camera. He also voiced agreement with his guest, Father James Martin, as the Jesuit priest declared that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is "weaponizing the Gospels and the Bible" against illegal immigrants.
On her 2:00 p.m. ET hour show on Monday, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur highlighted a controversial article in Sunday’s Boston Globe that compared enforcement of immigration law along the U.S. southern border to the Trail of Tears, a forced migration of Native Americans in the 1830s that caused many deaths.
The season finale of Showtime’s Billions culminated in U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) attempting to remove Trump appointed Attorney General Waylon “Jock” Jeffcoat (Clancy Brown) from office. Last episode, after Chuck discovered that AG Jeffcoat, a parody of AG Jeff Sessions, earned all of his money illegally, he plans to lure Jeffcoat into obstructing justice.
Showtime’s Billions continues its vendetta against Attorney General Jeff Sessions by characterizing its Jeff-Sessions parody character, Attorney General Waylon “Jock” Jeffcoat (Clancy Brown), as a man who “recognizes no legal or moral authority, no justice but his own” and deserves “assassination."
Wednesday’s Full Frontal on TBS was off the rails straight from the get-go as host Samantha Bee railed against the Trump administration for enforced tough immigration policies. After smearing the President, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and First Lady Melania Trump, Bee turned her twisted sights on Ivanka Trump and begged her to seduce her father to get him to change his policies. On top of that, she described the President’s daughter as a “feckless c**t.” How pathetic.
