U.S. Supreme Court
Liberal meltdown over Trump’s new Supreme Court pick has been cataclysmic to say the least. NBCNews.com added to the hysteria on Sunday by labeling the president’s nominee shortlist as “extreme.”
While speculating on who President Trump would nominate to Supreme Court, on Monday’s Good Morning America, ABC co-host Robin Roberts and correspondent Terry Moran engaged in a brief political strategy session to advise Democrats on the best way to obstruct any pick for the high court.
A Tuesday afternoon CNN Newsroom segment illustrated the left's panic over the Supreme Court opening with guest and Daily Beast contributing editor Erin Gloria Ryan asserting that, if President Trump selects a woman, they “should be known as the Aunt Lydia of the Supreme Court” in reference to a villain from liberal dystopian show The Handmaid’s Tale. In addition, Ryan argued they shouldn’t be supported by women because they are the anthesis of feminism.
In a screed for the latest issue of The New Yorker, CNN Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin warned the United States was doomed by prospect of President Trump naming another conservative justice to the Supreme Court. The cable news pundit feared that a “brazen conservative majority” would impact the country “in chilling new ways.”
Filling in for Craig Melvin during MSNBC’s 1:00 p.m. ET hour on Monday, anchor Chris Jansing recounted a recent exchange she had with a Democratic activist in California, who apparently became “literally physically ill” upon hearing the news that Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy was retiring and President Trump would be nominating a replacement.
Once a hero for Democrats and the left, Anthony Kennedy now is being reviled as a defective pawn of the liberal cause. On July 2, The Daily Beast published an article under the headline, “Anthony Kennedy, You Are a Total Disgrace to America.”
Actor and director Tim Robbins recently made sure to remind audiences of how much of a non-racist, anti-Trump saint he is. On Saturday, Tim Robbins attended the Karlovy Vary Film Festival. Screening two of his own films at the event, Robbins was a guest of honor who used his time behind the mic to wax political. This time, the actor took aim at Trump and the recent Supreme Court approval of the president’s travel ban.
Late Sunday on HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, the liberal comedian despaired, along with the rest of the media, over Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court. Playing advocate for the Democrats, the host spread doom and gloom predictions over the legacy of Roe v. Wade and gay marriage.
Over the weekend, CNN Newsroom host Ana Cabrera seemed to fret over the possibility that the Roe V. Wade Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion is "under threat" as she gave pro-abortion activist Gloria Allred a sympathetic forum to complain about the possibility of an abortion ban. Early on, the CNN host seemed taken aback that many Americans still wish to ban the killing of unborn babies as she asked Allred if she "can believe that this is still a question -- still under threat from a potential new Supreme Court."
During Friday’s edition of HBO's Real Time, panelist and leftist documentary maker Michael Moore reiterated a point frequently made by host Bill Maher that “fascism is at the doorstep” and issued a call-to-action: “The vast majority believe in women’s rights, environmental stuff, don’t put people in jail for using drugs. All of that stuff, the majority are with us. We are the majority. Why don’t we start acting like we’re the majority?” Maher seemed pessimistic about America’s future, pointing out that “now, you can’t get back the Court.
Con frecuencia hemos dicho que la inmigración es el corazón de la agenda pública de Univisión, pero la cadena también se ha dado a la tarea de promulgar otras políticas de corte liberal. Tal y como queda claro en la cobertura de la cadena sobre el fallo del Tribunal Supremo de los Estados Unidos en el caso NIFLA v. Becerra, el aborto ocupa el puntero de esa lista.
Affirmative action, the fix-all-racism tool for the left, ironically has found itself caught up in a discrimination scandal.
