Bias Alert: CNN Anchor Compares Trump To Hitler

In the same week that President Trump nailed members of the press for their aggressive bias and rampant fake news, a CNN anchor confirmed that reality when in a speech she likened Trump very explicitly to Hitler.

That occurred simultaneously as her boss was bidding on two pictures of Barack Obama for his wall.

Unbiased? Not so much.

Here’s more from Daily Caller

In the weeks after Donald Trump won the election, CNN chief Jeff Zucker watched as one of his employees compared the new president to Adolf Hitler.

At a White House press conference Thursday, Trump declared that he was changing his moniker for the network from “fake news” to “very fake news.”

There’s been a ton of well-publicized drama between the two camps. The White House has threatened to throw Jim Acosta out of the briefing room. Jake Tapper has bashed Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway for lying on air. And his Sunday show recently declined an offer by the White House to have her come on.

You may think Trump is too harsh on CNN.

But take a look at how the network treated Trump back in November.

Less than a week after Trump won the election, a cadre of CNN employees made their way to the Ronald Reagan Building in downtown Washington to attend the 2016 International Center for Journalists awards dinner.

CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer was the emcee of the November 14, 2016 event. Zucker, CNN’s Worldwide president, was also there — sitting near the front of the ballroom — where he had the pleasure of witnessing two of his employees receive awards.

First up was Clarissa Ward, a war correspondent for the network, who gave a gracious speech about how journalists “have to listen to voices we don’t want to hear.”

Carmen Aristegui, on the other hand — whose popular show airs on CNN Espanol — compared Trump to Adolf Hitler.

The Mirror requested a comment from Zucker as well as a CNN publicist. Neither answered our questions.

In a speech that, at times, stunned the audience into silence, the Mexican journalist began by saying “[t]he triumph of Donald Trump has left us shaken. We are all still in a state of shock.”

Chris Wallace Grills Priebus on Trump: ‘You Don’t Get to Tell Us What to Do’

Donald Trump took the fight to the media last week and called a spade a spade, and now the liberal press is going nuts attempting to stand their ground.

Even Fox News is pushing back.

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus went head to head with Chris Wallace, and it wasn’t pretty.

Here’s more from Breitbart

On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox New Sunday,” host Chris Wallace got into a long and heated exchange with White House chief of staff Reince Priebus over President Donald Trump‘s tweet labeling the press an “enemy” of the American people.

After several minutes of back and forth arguing over the media’s coverage of the Trump administration, Wallace said, “You don’t get to tell us what to do Reince. You don’t get to tell us what to do any more than Barack Obama did. Barack Obama whined about Fox News all the time, but I got to say, he never said we were an enemy of the people.”

Later in the segment, Priebus said, “I don’t know why you are going bananas.”

Pope Francis: ‘Muslim Terrorism Does Not Exist’

The global leftist media seized on another sharp proclamation by Pope Francis this week and twisted his words to play him as the icon of progressivism.

In his address to a gathering of leaders, his statement in proper context meant that all religions of the world have extremists who distort their religion’s tenets to support terror.

But the liberal media once again politicized what was never intended as political.

Here’s more from Breitbart

In an impassioned address Friday, Pope Francis denied the existence of Islamic terrorism, while simultaneously asserting that “the ecological crisis is real.”

“Christian terrorism does not exist, Jewish terrorism does not exist, and Muslim terrorism does not exist. They do not exist,” Francis said in his speech to a world meeting of populist movements.

What he apparently meant is that not all Christians are terrorists and not all Muslims are terrorists—a fact evident to all—yet his words also seemed to suggest that no specifically Islamic form of terrorism exists in the world, an assertion that stands in stark contradiction to established fact.

“No people is criminal or drug-trafficking or violent,” Francis said, while also suggesting—as he has on other occasions—that terrorism is primarily a result of economic inequalities rather than religious beliefs. “The poor and the poorer peoples are accused of violence yet, without equal opportunities, the different forms of aggression and conflict will find a fertile terrain for growth and will eventually explode.”

The Pope also reiterated his conviction that all religions promote peace and that the danger of violent radicalization exists equally in all religions.

“There are fundamentalist and violent individuals in all peoples and religions—and with intolerant generalizations they become stronger because they feed on hate and xenophobia,” he said.

Ouch: Trump Slams ‘Dishonest’ Press for ‘Tremendous Disservice’ to the Nation

The double-standards with which the mainstream media has heaped criticism upon the Trump administration in the first 30 days is so over the top we can’t cover it all.

And now Trump has had enough of it.

In a rare press conference today, President Trump opened up with a direct attack on the members of the media in the pool. It got nasty real quick.

Here’s more from Breitbart

Thursday at a press conference to announce his pick of Alexander Acosta for the vacant Secretary of Labor post, President Donald Trump ripped the “dishonest” press and suggested they intentionally being an obstacle to his effort to take the “entrenched power structure.”

Watch the video:

Partial transcript as follows:

I’m here today to update the American people on the incredible progress that has been made in the last four weeks since my inauguration. We have made incredible progress. I don’t think there’s ever been a president elected who in this short period of time has done what we have done. A new Rasmussen poll in fact, the people – much of the media doesn’t get it. They actually get it but they don’t write it. A new Rasmussen poll just came out a very short while ago and it has our approval rating at 55 percent and going up. The stock market has hit record numbers as you know. And there has been a tremendous surge of optimism in the business world, which to me means something much different than it used to. It used to mean oh, that’s good. Now it means that’s good for jobs – very different. Plants and factories starting to move back into the United States and

The stock market has hit record numbers as you know. And there has been a tremendous surge of optimism in the business world, which to me means something much different than it used to. It used to mean oh, that’s good. Now it means that’s good for jobs – very different. Plants and factories are starting to move back into the United States and bigly Ford, General Motors, so many. I make this presentation directly to the American people with the media present, which is an honor to have you. This morning because many of our nation’s reporters and folks will not tell you the truth, and will not treat the wonderful people of our country with the respect that they deserve. And I hope going forward we can be a little bit, a little bit different and get along better if that’s possible. Maybe it’s not, and that’s OK too. Much of the media in Washington, D.C. and New York and Los Angeles, in particular, speaks not for the people but for the special interests and for those profiting off a very, very obviously broken system. The press has become so dishonest that if we don’t talk about it, we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people, a tremendous disservice. We have to talk about it, to find out what’s going on because the press honestly is out of control. The level of dishonesty is out of control. I ran for president to represent the citizens of our country. I am here to change the broken system, so it serves their families and their communities well. I am talking and really am taking

I am taking and really am taking on this very entrenched power structure and we’re talking about the power structure. We’re talking about its entrenchment. As a result, the media is going through what they have to go through to oftentimes distort. Not all the the time and some of the media is fantastic. I think I have to say – they’re honest and fantastic. Much of it is not – the distortion, you’ll be able to ask me questions about. But, we’re not going to let it happen because I’m here again to take my message straight to the people.

De Niro on Trump: ‘Of Course I Want to Punch Him in the Face’

Liberals gonna lib. That’s the reality, no matter how good an actor they might be. And super liberal Robert De Niro is not exception.

He’s so mad at Donald Trump for being such a big meanie that he’s ready to punch him in the face. More empty words.

Here’s more from Newsmax:

Actor Robert De Niro repeated his desire to punch President Donald Trump in the face in an Friday appearance on ABC’s “The View.”

“He’s so blatantly stupid,” De Niro said of Trump in a “Get Out the Vote” video before the election. “He’s a punk. He’s a dog. He’s a pig. He’s a con, a bullsh — artist. A mutt who doesn’t know what he’s talking about. … He’s an idiot. Colin Powell said it best: He’s a national disaster. He’s an embarrassment to this country.

“He talks about he likes to punch people in the face. We’ll I’d like to punch him in the face.”

Poll: Americans Favor Suspending Immigration From Terror Regions

The liberal mainstream media has spent the last few days fomenting hysteria over President Trump’s order to stop refugees from terrorist-sponsoring nations. But now the polls are blowing up in their faces.

Here’s more from Newsmax:

American voters support 48-42 percent “suspending immigration from ‘terror prone’ regions” — even if it means turns turning away refugees from those areas, a Quinnipiac University poll revealed.

Here are the poll highlights:

  • 48 percent of voters approve of suspending immigration from terror prone areas, including 72 percent of Republicans and 24 percent of Democrats.
  • 53 percent of voters support requiring immigrants from Muslim countries to register with the federal government, including 75 percent of Republicans and 34 percent of Democrats.
  • 59 percent of voters believe illegal immigrants should be allowed to stay in the U.S. and eventually apply for U.S. citizenship, including 38 percent of Republicans and 80 percent of Democrats.

The poll was conducted Jan. 5-9 — before President Donald Trump signed his executive order on refugees.

Tucker Carlson Nearly Doubles Megyn Kelly’s Ratings

A couple weeks after the furor over Megyn Kelly’s mega-million deal with NBC, Fox News scrambled to replace her with the unlikely figure of Tucker Carlson. But now he’s a hit and has smashed Kelly’s ratings in the prime time spot. And it’s pretty clear how he’s done it.

Here’s more from the Hill:

Fox News’s Tucker Carlson is nearly doubling the ratings of his predecessor, Megyn Kelly, when compared to the same time period last year, according to Nielsen Media Research.

“Tucker Carlson Tonight” is up 95 percent in the 25- to 54-year-old demographic that advertisers covet most compared with the same period in 2016, when “The Kelly File” occupied the 9 p.m. ET time slot.

Carlson has averaged 775,000 viewers per night in the category, while Kelly averaged 398,000 during the same time period, Jan. 11–22.

Carlson took over the 9 p.m. slot on Jan. 9, shortly after Kelly announced she would be leaving for a daytime program on NBC.

Fox had reportedly offered Kelly $100 million over four years to stay with the network last fall. The former corporate attorney-turned-broadcast journalist said spending more time with her three young children in the afternoon and evening was ultimately more important. She reportedly took less money to go to NBC, where she won’t be hosting a show every weekday night as she had at Fox.

Video: Ashley Judd Headlines Obscene Women’s March With Vulgar Speech

The celebrity left continued its anti-Trump insanity this weekend at the U.S. Capitol with a star-studded line-up of looney Hollywood gliterati removing any doubt whether they’d officially lost their minds.

And then uber lefty Ashley Judd took the stage and left jaws dropping with vulgarity that would make Bill Maher blush. Warning: graphic language.

Here’s more from Redstate:

Ashley Judd crashed Michael Moore’s rant attacking new Secretary of Education, Betsy Devos, at the Women’s March to recite a poem, and well it wasn’t a good look. Not that Moore didn’t need to be interrupted, he was after all bashing a woman at the Women’s March. Maybe that’s what inspired Ashley Judd’s electric performance. Judd started her one woman descent into madness, with a quick mention of a student who apparently wrote the words she interpreted. It’s something to see. Judd flips from period blood to “p*ssies are for pleasure” in one manic paragraph, while calling others vulgar. So you’re warned.

In addition to the “p*ssy” comments, Ashley Judd drops into a questionable accent. And by questionable, I mean she sounds like she is imitating a southern black grandma, and dare I say, she sounds a little racist in her delivery? Or it would deemed racist if done at an event that wasn’t a Hillary Clinton rally for grief. Reminder, then private citizen Donald Trump said “p*ssy” once in his infamous taped discussion with Billy Bush, the one that played on a loop prior to the election. This screed by Judd was yanked from both CNN and MSNBC before she finished.

Warning: Explicit Language and rampant stupidity. Watch the whole wild thing now.

GQ Mag on Obama: One of the Greatest Presidents Ever

The liberal fixation with Barack Obama borders on the delusional despite the failure of virtually everything he did in eight years at the White House.

Now GQ Magazine predicts he’ll go down as one of the greatest presidents ever. Unbelievable.

Here’s more from Redstate:

In what I can only describe as fanfiction that borders on the erotic, Jim Nelson of GQ Magazine, a self-proclaimed Clinton guy, decides that Barack Obama will be “inducted into the league of great presidents” because of how well he did as president.

I cannot even begin to describe just how little substance there is to the piece except to say that it is remarkable similar to Obama’s presidency in that regard.

The column is a mix of historical references, only one of which – comparing Donald Trump to Herbert Hoover – actually fits. The evidence used to describe Obama as a candidate for one of the greatest presidents ever is… not “non-existent” so much as it is “non-relevant.”

What makes Obama great? Well, for one thing, the fact that he was charismatic:

Barack Obama will long be revered because he’s charismatic, presided over an economic revival, and changed and elevated the view of the presidency. He’s simply bigger than Bill.

Elevated the view of the presidency? Sure, for roughly half the country. The other half, he repeatedly spoke down to, dismissed, and ultimately completely overlooked as a direct threat to his own party.

The article has also decided that Obama was the “adult in the room” when the national mood was so sour and divisive…

Obama has a few other edges in the long haul of history, beyond specific hurrah moments like Obamacare, rescuing the economy, and making America way more bi-curious. Being the first black president of course secures a certain legacy. But what now feels distinctly possible is that, just as Martin Luther King Jr. dreamed, over time he may be judged less for the color of his skin than for the content of his character. That character came across every time haters or Trumpers or birthers tried to pull him down into the mud or question his American-ness. He just flew above it all. And, luckily, he took most of us with him. He was the Leader not only of our country but of our mood and disposition, which is harder to rule. At a time when we became more polarized, our discourse pettier and more poisoned, Obama always came across as the Adult in the Room, the one we wanted to be and follow.

…which is incredibly hilarious given that his first response to critique from Republicans was “I won” followed by a victory dance and flipping the bird to Republicans in Washington. He steadfastly referred to Republicans and conservatives as “the enemy,” dismissed them as people who bitterly cling to their guns and bibles, insulted and mocked Fox News and other conservative media, and decided to lecture the American public on numerous occasions when he didn’t get his way.

Victory: Trump Presser Sparks Infighting Among Liberal Media

After Donald Trump’s press conference yesterday in which he assailed the liberal media for publishing unsubstantiated claims and scurrilous charges against him, the liberal media are now arguing over who has the most legitimate story and who’s just ‘fake news’.

It’s descending into a circle firing squad.

Here’s more from Breitbart:

CNN has released a statement trying to distance their reports from BuzzFeed’s decision to publish unverifiable memos about president-elect Donald Trump.

Midday Tuesday, CNN tweeted a full statement from their Twitter account saying,

CNN’s decision to publish carefully sourced reporting about the operations of our government is vastly different than BuzzFeed’s decision to publish unsubstantiated memos. The Trump team knows this. They are using BuzzFeed’s decision to deflect from CNN’s reporting, which has been matched by the other major news organisations.

The statement continues,

We are fully confident in our reporting. It represents the core of what the First Amendment protects, informing the people of the inner workings of their government; in this case, briefing materials prepared for President Obama and President-elect Trump last week. We made it clear that we were not publishing any of the details of the 35-page document because we have not corroborated the report’s allegations.

The statement then poses a direct challenge to the transition team of President-elect Trump,

Given that members of the Trump transition team have so vocally criticized our reporting, we encourage them to identify, specifically, what they believe to be inaccurate.
