President Barack Obama
At least Hollywood acknowledges the Armenian Genocide, even if President Obama won’t. The Promise — which recently premiered at the 2016 Toronto Film Festival — is the latest historical drama directed by Terry George (Hotel Rwanda). Starring Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac, the film utilizes elegant cinematography, intense action sequences and love triangles to address the horrific events of the 1915 – 1917 massacre of Armenians by Ottoman Turks.
WASHINGTON — Did you see the interview over the weekend of a listless and, apparently, exhausted Hillary Clinton? Supposedly she has recovered from last week's bout with pneumonia, but she could have fooled me. Call me a hypochondriac, but in my opinion her recovery is not going very well.
With the first 2016 presidential debate approaching on Monday, a portion of Tuesday’s Hardball on MSNBC was dedicated to looking back at some iconic moments from past debates and host Chris Matthews used the time to express his sheer anger that still permeates four years later at Mitt Romney for his “terrible performance” in the first 2012 debate where he “walked in like he’s a better man” than President Obama.
Needless to say, the media were besides themselves on Friday in turning up the outrage machine at Donald Trump for dragging out his birtherism statement and aside from his lack of an apology for perpetuating the asinine belief about President Obama, few were willing to own up to their role in going along with Trump’s media circus.
In the hours following President Barack Obama’s campaign stop for Hillary Clinton on Tuesday afternoon in Philadelphia, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was beyond giddy at the “magical” stump speech but he was later joined by Brian Williams, who declared on The 11th Hour that Obama will go down as “a communicator who can deliver” enthusiasm “unlike anything we have ever seen.”
Right from the start of Tuesday’s Hardball on MSNBC, it was clear that host Chris Matthews was in a giddy mood thanks to President Barack Obama having stumped hours earlier for Hillary Clinton. Of course, he was enamored from the get-go exclaiming that Obama was “back” and rhetorically asked viewers if they saw Obama’s Philadelphia rally so he could assert it included some “magical” lines.
Bill who? At a time when Mrs. Bill Clinton is running a race for president and suggesting husband Bill will play a role in her administration “in charge of revitalizing the economy, because, you know, he knows how to do it,” the media has been happy to cover he story as seen here in The New York Times.
The Federalist senior editor and 2015 Noel Sheppard Media Blogger of the Year Award recipient Mollie Heminway was at it again on Friday with a masterful takedown of the media for their double standard in mocking Mitt Romney’s warning about Russia in 2012 but expressing alarm in 2016 at Donald Trump’s infatuation with the oppressive country and their president in Vladimir Putin.
With two months left before the presidential election on November 8, a major poll released Tuesday morning by the Cable News Network and Opinion Research Corporation “revealed that the 'prohibitive favorite' -- Hillary Clinton -- is down by two points nationally to one of the worst presidential candidates since the advent of the indoor flush toilet: Donald J. Trump,” according to an article posted on the Politico website.
“Which just goes to show: No one -- not the bullpen of the New York Mets, not the French army, not Wile E. Coyote, not even Al Gore -- is better at squandering a commanding lead than the Queen of Coasting,” Chief Political Correspondent Glenn Thrush noted.
During Monday night's edition of the Tomi program on The Blaze website, conservative host Tomi Lahren harshly criticized Colin Kaepernick -- quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers professional football team -- for refusing to stand during the performance of the National Anthem at the start of the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers the day before.
Lahren began her “Final Thoughts” segment by promising to “eviscerate” Kaepernick's “mouth diarrhea” before calling him a “whiny, indulgent, attention-seeking crybaby” and asserting that “if this country disgusts you so much, leave!”
While speaking on Monday afternoon to the editor of the Louisiana newspaper that’s been critical of President Barack Obama’s vacationing in Martha’s Vineyard while the Bayou State floods, MSNBC Live host Stephanie Ruhle wanted to know why it was “so important that the President” tour the devastation because “it costs a lot of money” for him to go anywhere.
While Donald Trump was hate-tweeting on Monday morning about Morning Joe and the gossip site rumors surrounding co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, the latter co-host prided himself as being a Trump critic (he wasn’t) but more importantly called out the Obama administration and government for collectively having “blood on our hands” for the inaction in Syria’s civil war to, in part, preserve the Iran nuclear deal.
