During his political-centric monologue on Thursday night, “America’s Conscience” and ABC’s late night host Jimmy Kimmel quipped that he’s “never wanted to see and not see anything more than I either do or do not want to see” a Donald Trump-Stormy Daniels sex tape and lobbied for donations to her legal defense fund so any sex tape(s) and/or explicit photo(s) can be made public.
The media’s embarrassing adoration for the porn star who is suing President Trump seemingly has no end in sight, with another shameless display on Friday's The View, where the liberal hosts gushed over Stormy Daniels as some sort of feminist hero.
The Washington Post is not known as a staunch defender of Christianity, but a columnist for the liberal newspaper found a way to both criticize evangelicals in this country and slam President Donald Trump all in one stroke. While a guest during CBS’s Face the Nation program on Sunday morning, Michael Gerson -- a nationally syndicated columnist whose writing appears twice weekly in the Post and who served as a top aide and speech-writer for former Republican President George W. Bush -- hammered evangelicals who support Trump as “slimy political operatives, not moral leaders.”
Put simply, CNN has a porn problem. For the so-called “Facts First” network, the President’s alleged affair with porn star Stormy Daniels has become their new missing Malaysian plane with exhaustive coverage and speculation. CNN took it to another level on Saturday, devoting roughly 41 minutes to her Friday performance at a Florida strip club.
The Washington Post is so anti-Trump that they are praising the Twitter game of porn star Stormy Daniels as "quick, sassy, and most of all, unflappable and relentlessly thick-skinned." Style writer Monica Hesse tweeted out her favorite line from this valentine: "'Online, one of them is lewd, petulant and self-involved. The other is a porn star.' Parsing Daniels’s rhetorical gifts." Porn stars thrive in the paper's lightness!
At the Jeffrey Zucker-led CNN, they can be trusted to go all-out whenever they find a news story that they deem worth obsessing over. Whether it was the missing Malaysian plane or Sam Nunberg, CNN has proven itself incapable of covering more than one topic at a time. On Wednesday, CNN’s primetime programming showed that with over 149 minutes pushing the Trump scandal involving porn star Stormy Daniels and another 86 minutes on other Trump-related scandals.
ABC’s The View started off their show, March 8, by blasting White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders as an incompetent liar, and eagerly hoping the Stormy Daniels lawsuit would produce physical evidence to impeach President Trump.
As they’ve done before, the women at The View used the latest controversy over President Trump as a way to complain that President Obama had it worse. As news broke that porn star Stormy Daniels was back in the news again, suing President Trump, the View hosts whined that this story was just more proof of how Trump got away with everything, yet Obama faced unfair scrutiny.
CNN analyst and HLN host S.E. Cupp guest-hosted The View today, and used the occasion to push back against the table’s liberal spin. While talking about Stormy Daniels, Cupp called out the leftists in the media for choosing to believe the porn star’s account of her affair with President Trump, while they tore down and discredited President Clinton’s many accusers in the 1990s.
Despite repeatedly acknowledging that both parties “vehemently denied” accusations that Donald Trump had an affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels over a decade ago, on Tuesday, NBC News Megyn Kelly still devoted half of her 9:00 a.m. ET hour show to the claims. She even suggested that the disputed rumors somehow proved allegations against Trump featured in the discredited DNC-funded Russian dossier.
To be clear, we don't fit into any template here, Democratic or Republican or otherwise. I play it down the middle.Anyone who's seen Sanchez at work knows how funny that is. Throughout his program posts from the microblogging service Twitter crawl across the screen. Known as tweets, the messages Sanchez selects to air come overwhelmingly from liberals.
Friday's program was instructive. Newshound Rick on Monday had interviewed porn star Stormy Daniels, who claims she's being urged to run against Louisiana Republican U.S. Senator David Vitter, himself involved in an earlier sex scandal. Interviewing Stormy is the sort of hard news on which Rick thrives, so he ran Monday's interview again on Friday. Then he moved on to discuss Rush Limbaugh:
SANCHEZ: So, by the way, among those participating these days, Rush Limbaugh. He was watching us again this week, when we broke the news about a breakthrough on the president's stimulus package.
And now, as you listen to Rush, see if you can decide who he's more mad at, me for reporting the news of an apparent legislative victory for President Obama, or the three Republicans who broke ranks with Rush Limbaugh and sided with the president?
