Morning Joe Excited By Pelosi Continuing To Block SOTU, Trump Getting ‘Schooled’

Posted on 28 January 2019

MSNBC’s Morning Joe has spent the better part of the last few weeks lamenting the government shutdown, framing the the budget impass as a 35-day exercise in futility based around a concocted crises.  On Monday, the morning show cheered the end of the “petty” stalemate while also applauding House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for having “schooled” the President by still refusing to schedule the State of the Union address.

The Media Lose Big in the Confrontation between Catholic Students and Professional Protesters

Posted on 28 January 2019

It’s almost cliché in pro-life circles that on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade for coming close to 50 years, hundreds of thousands of people march for life, and almost no one in the media can see them. Like Pro-Life Ninjas, they move in and…

MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt: Kamala Appealing to ‘Coalition of Ascendant’

Posted on 28 January 2019

Sounding more like a feminist fan than a “correspondent,” Kasie Hunt has enthused over the proliferation of women candidates in the 2020 Dem field. Appearing on today’s Morning Joe, MSNBC correspondent Hunt said it was a “real victory” that the fact that Harris is the third woman [along with Elizabeth Warren and Tulsi Gabbard] to have announced her candidacy is “unremarkable.” Sounds like “correspondent” Hunt is cheering a victory for Team Woman.

‘Supergirl’: Gender Transitioning When Young Affirms Your ‘Authentic Self’

Posted on 27 January 2019

CW’s Supergirl has promised to debut the first transgender superhero on television, and now we’ve reached the cusp of that character’s origin story. To absolutely no one’s surprise, it’s deluded, self-righteous, and more than a little confusing. But that’s what you get when pretending a man has the superpower to transform into a woman.

Harry Potter Actor Advises Patriots’ Brady To Ditch His Make America Great Again Hat

Posted on 27 January 2019

Hey, Tom Brady, while you and your coaches and teammates are preparing to take on the Los Angeles Rams in Sunday’s Super Bowl, you would do well to trash that MAGA hat sitting in your locker. That’s the advice you’re getting from Daniel Radcliffe, star of the Harry Potter movies, who tells Brady he’s terrific and he’s behind him, but the hat must go. President Donald Trump is, after all, as bad or worse than Potter’s disgusting antagonist, Voldemort.

WashPost Ponders Impeachment, But Worries Trump’s ‘Core Supporters’ Might Get Violent

Posted on 27 January 2019

Last August, Washington Post nonfiction book critic Carlos Lozada wrote a very dismissive essay on “sycophantic pro-Trump books, proclaiming none of them were “useful,” since they didn’t seek to convince the middle. Now, Lozada has sort of managed the opposite, reviewing seven books on impeachment, and none of those are judged not “useful” because they only speak to Americans who deeply want impeachment….because Lozada is one of those liberals who want impeachment. 

Bill Maher Compares Trump Voters to ‘Mrs. Goebbels in the Bunker’ Killing Her Children

Posted on 27 January 2019

If you’ve cast even a casual glance at liberal comic Bill Maher over the years, you’re probably aware that the juvenile comparison of American conservatives to Nazis is a predictable element in Maher’s shtick. So it was once again on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher over the weekend, this time while Maher was talking with guest Michael McFaul, US ambassador to Russia during the Obama presidency.

McFaul, pointing out that he’s originally from Montana and hence acquainted with many of the people who comprise President Trump’s base, asserted that Trump has failed to do…

CNN Brings On Sam Donaldson to Mock Trump, Conway as Spotlight-Loving ‘Narcissists’

Posted on 27 January 2019

CNN viewers are used to a narcissist spectacle on almost daily basis in White House reporter Jim Acosta. Former ABC White House reporter Sam Donaldson, whose liberal bluster is surely an Acosta inspiration, has come to Acosta’s defense. So it was a little funny for Donaldson to come on CNN Wednesday night and slam President Trump and his top aide Kellyanne Conway as “narcissists” who love the spotlight and don’t mind “trashing anyone.” Reporters are not good at self-reflection.

Left Freaks Out at WashPost Fact Checker Giving Pinocchios to Ocasio-Cortez

Posted on 26 January 2019

Leftists got extremely angry that Kessler would “obsess” over Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez mangling facts. Eric Alterman, who unintentionally wrote the Funniest Book of 2003 — What Liberal Media? — now complains that Kessler is obsessed in a romantic way with AOC. Er, when Kessler’s written on her precisely once in 2019, and 12 times on Trump. The president is called out for 8,158 whoppers, and AOC is up, to what, three?
