Latest from Kristine Marsh
After wrongly and confidently predicting that Hillary Clinton had a 99% chance to beat Donald Trump in the presidential election, late-night MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell was back at it again with the brazen speculation Tuesday night. To open his show, O’Donnell went on a lengthy takedown of the President, comparing him to Richard Nixon and his Watergate scandal, even claiming that Trump had done “exactly” the same thing Nixon was impeached for.
Wednesday on The View, co-host Sunny Hostin couldn’t contain her excitement at the possibility that President Trump could face impeachment, over a new New York Times report that revealed former FBI Director James Comey made a written record of his meetings with Donald Trump before he was fired. The “Comey memo” could confirm that Trump asked the FBI Director to "let go" of the investigation, which may be an obstruction of justice.
After the evening news broadcasts rushed to hype an unconfirmed Washington Post report based off of anonymous sources Monday night, ABC was eager to tout the story as “the most significant and dangerous mistake of the Trump presidency” on Tuesday morning’s Good Morning America.
Last Friday, former First Lady Michelle Obama blasted Trump and Republicans for trying to roll back her healthy school lunch program, accusing them of not caring about kids. “What is wrong with you?” Obama provocatively asked her left-leaning audience. Well Joy Behar on Monday’s The View had the same question to ask Republicans, adding in a little Ronald Reagan bashing and Michael Moore praising to make her rants extra nauseating and eye roll-worthy.
Hollywood liberal Joss Whedon is so angry at Trump that nothing else matters, even his own family. Sunday, Whedon used Mother’s Day to make an anti-Trump statement, admitting that Donald Trump’s presidency was more upsetting to him than his mother being gone.
An impassioned Michelle Obama slammed President Trump’s efforts to roll back some of the regulations on school lunches she started as First Lady. Obama stated bluntly that critics to her healthy lunch program simply “don’t care about your kid.”
Once again, ABC’s Matthew Dowd has proved that even Twitter can’t keep him from saying something so stupid in so few words. Responding to FNC’s Shannon Bream tweet announcement that she was going to be talking to Franklin Graham about the increasing persecution of Christians across the world, Dowd bitterly brought up anti-Muslim “persecution” in the United States as the real issue we should be talking about.
Daily Show correspondent Hasan Minhaj was the special guest on Friday’s The View, where he shared his experience hosting the White House Correspondents' Dinner a few weeks ago and plugged his new Netflix stand up show. While the Comedy Central comedian didn’t speak very frequently, when he did, it was usually to insult Republicans or Donald Trump (shocking).
All of a sudden what President Obama did over and over again while he was in office is considered “treason” if President Trump does it.On Thursday’s The View, an upset Joy Behar ranted that Trump barring U.S. press from a meeting with Russia’s foreign minister Sergey Lavrov Wednesday was tantamount to “treason” and should upset every American.
The Democrats are in an uproar after President Trump, under advisement from the DOJ, fired FBI Director James Comey Tuesday night, calling the surprise firing an obstruction of the FBI’s investigation into Trump’s ties to Russia. Yet the same party called for Comey to be fired back in October, when he was investigating Hillary Clinton’s emails. But instead of calling out the Democrats for the flip-flop, ABC toed the line for the party, coming to their defense over conservative criticism that the party wanted Comey to be fired just a few months ago.
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice appeared on Tuesday’s The View, where she was pummelled with partisan questions aimed to bait her into admitting that Hillary Clinton should’ve won the 2016 election and attack Donald Trump. Rice didn’t fall for any of the liberal hosts’ traps though and held her own, even earning the panel’s listening ear, something most Republicans don’t get when guests on The View.
Personal anecdotes suddenly matter to the left when talking about health care. After late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel went on an emotional rant last week for his sick child over the GOP’s health care bill provisions, the media rewarded him with gushy praise over the “brave” admission, using it as a launch pad to attack Republicans with for getting rid of ObamaCare. Well Monday night Kimmel was back at it again, this time personally targeting specific Republicans and conservative outlets over their criticism of his sob story’s appeal to emotion over hard facts.
Newsweek writer Kurt Eichenwald has no problem using his platform as a member of the media to hurl death threats against those whom he disagrees with. After House Republicans passed the AHCA last Thursday, the liberal writer took to Twitter to air his grievances against the bill by wishing that their family members would be tortured and die. (Yes, really.)
When the House passed the GOP’s Obamacare replacement, the AHCA last Thursday, there was no shortage of angry celebrities attacking the GOP in profanity-laced tweets, claiming the GOP “will pay” for it come election time. Looks like the anger has not died down in Hollywood yet. Actress and singer Bette Midler followed the rest of her ilk’s partisan and vile lead, tweeting that the GOP was “gassing their own people” by repealing ObamaCare.
After touting President Obama’s endorsement of Emmanuel Macron last week, the networks were back Monday to offer full reports gushing about his election victory. The liberal candidate beat conservative candidate Marine Le Pen by a 2-1 margin, which all three networks characterized as a defeat against “extremism” and the “far right.” NBC’s Richard Engel was so excited about the news, that he actually compared Le Pen’s defeat to the defeat of Nazi Germany.
Paul Ryan and the GOP finally managed to get the votes needed from the House to pass the American Health Care Act Thursday to repeal and replace ObamaCare and the news was a huge upset for the mainstream media. All three networks cheered Democrats taunting Republicans in the House for passing what they saw as a failure of a bill, as some sort of victory dance for the left. ABC, NBC and CBS also acted as Democrat operatives, complaining about everything wrong with the bill from the left’s perspective, while ignoring concerns conservatives had with the health care bill retaining many of the problems from ObamaCare.
ABC, NBC and CBS finally covered President Obama’s endorsement of left-wing French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron on their morning news broadcasts Friday, but unsurprisingly, had only nice things to say about our former president interfering in another country’s election, yet again.
All three networks Thursday morning predictably reacted negatively to President Trump signing an executive order to scale back federal regulations on religious organizations. Calling the order “controversial,” the three networks warned the bill would likely cause discrimination and fretted about forced birth control coverage. Yet not one of the networks interviewed a religious group that would be affected positively by this order.
See if this makes any sense to you. America votes for a black man for President, two election cycles in a row. Along comes a former First Lady, secretary of state and senator, rife with scandals and baggage, who fails to win two presidential election cycles in a row (and just happens to be white). To the radical liberals on ABC’s The View, apparently that means she lost due to “racist” backlash against the black president who won two elections already. What?
Hillary Clinton is using her time in the spotlight again to make headlines, after coming “out of the woods” yesterday to continue stubbornly blaming everyone but herself for her election loss. She continued to make more ridiculous accusations last night at Planned Parenthood’s 100 year anniversary gala, where she was honored with the “Champion of the Century” award. Always trying to be relevant, Clinton brought up the Hulu series The Handmaid’s Tale and warned that the dystopian future was “not far off” for America.
