During the transition between Cuomo Prime Time and CNN Tonight on Wednesday night, host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo brazenly claimed that white people are devoid of empathy and lack the ability to “see humanity” in black people—specifically, in George Floyd. During the handoff, Don Lemon and Cuomo raved about how compelling and emotional the witness testimony was in the trial of former Minneapolis Police…
On Thursday evening, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon suffered yet another anti-conservative meltdown on live television. He implored viewers to provide him with their undivided attention and to get “in front of the television, right now,” so they wouldn’t miss a second of his seventeen-minute rant about the newly passed voting legislation in the state of Georgia. The race-baiting anchor began by…
On Wednesday night, MSNBC anchor and self-professed socialist Lawrence O’Donnell dedicated over ten minutes of his show lamenting that much of America was “stolen” from Mexico. O’Donnell, demonstrably devoid of all journalistic integrity, stooped to a new low: victim blaming. The left-wing shill condescendingly contended that America is all but deserving for the turmoil at the southern border,…
On Saturday, LA Times contributor Kurt Bardella proclaimed on PoliticsNation that former President Ronald Reagan was “a racist” and is to blame for the purported uptick in discrimination toward Asians. MSNBC’s race-baiting host Al Sharpton invited Bardella and Black Lives Matter activist Brittany Packnett Cunningham on to assist him in his routine demonization of conservatives. The tax-evading …
On Wednesday, MSNBC’s race-baiter Joy Reid took to the airwaves to perform her usual denunciation of Republicans and Fox News personnel, grossly denouncing anyone opposed to unmitigated immigration as a fearmongering, insensitive racist who enjoys watching children ripped from their parents’ arms. For daring to ask White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki a basic policy-based question, the Fox News…
On Saturday, MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross unabashedly contended that the Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters in the District of Columbia should be renamed after Democratic politician Stacey Abrams. During her infamous “Make it Make Sense” segment, in which she takes questions from viewers, Cross decried the FBI’s first director, J. Edgar Hoover, as a “racist tyrant,” a “homophobe,” and a “…
CNN’s least talented anchor, Brian Stelter, dedicated more than ten minutes of Sunday’s Reliable Sources arguing that Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson is the “new Donald Trump.” In an awkward fit of rage and demonstrable jealousy over Carlson’s unprecedented ratings, Stelter denigrated both Fox News personnel and viewers. The unhinged host accused Carlson of rewriting history and providing…
During Wednesday’s CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon had an unhinged meltdown over Republican opposition to the Biden administration’s COVID-relief bill. The fearmongering, left-wing host was also apoplectic at the idea that some black Americans don’t view white supremacy as a pervasive and existential threat. At one point during the broadcast, Lemon appeared to become so indignant that producers had…
On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow unabashedly conceded that four years of a Republican president had exacerbated both her arrogance and pettiness. Maddow spent over five minutes of her opening monologue gushing about the Biden administration’s debt-raising, $1.9 trillion Coronavirus-relief bill. Alluding to then-Vice President Biden’s conspicuous excitement at the signing ceremony for the…
On Friday, MSNBC’s Joy Reid and her left-wing guests resorted to their typical attacking of Republican politicians and the individuals who got them elected. Reid invited radio host Dean Obeidallah on to discuss a wide variety of topics ranging from Senator Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) speculated retirement to Representative Paul Gosar’s (R-AZ) address at the America First Political Action Conference…
