CNN’s Don Lemon seemed to get flustered on Monday night as he ended up going around in circles during an interview with Isaac Newton Farris about President Trump‘s racist tendencies. It’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day today, and several of the civil rights icon’s relatives have weighed in on Trump’s remarks about how people from Africa come from “sh*thole countries.” On one hand, King’s oldest son, Martin Luther King III, held multiple speaking engagements today where he said that the president’s comments were “extremely racist,” and his father would not have approved. On the other hand, Alveda King gave an interview on Fox & Friends where she insisted that Trump’s not racist because black people are benefiting from his administration. Farris met with Trump at the White House last week, and tonight, the nephew to Dr. King argued that the president’s “sh*thole” remarks have more to do Continue reading "WATCH: Don Lemon’s Interview With MLK’s Nephew Turns Into Complete Trainwreck"
The CNN host uses the president's own words against him.
At the end of his program Monday night, Fox News’ Sean Hannity gleefully showed part of Saturday Night Live’s cold open from this past weekend. While most viewers remembered Bill Murray’s surprise appearance as Steve Bannon, Hannity focused on the skit’s mockery of Morning Joe’s Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough. Of course, considering that Hannity has spent much of his airtime going after the MSNBC couple, it shouldn’t be all that surprising that he’d love the SNL clip. He called it his “best ‘Video of the Day’ ever, and after playing a bit of the skit, implored his viewers to check out the whole thing on his website. A couple of minutes later, as Hannity was handing off to Laura Ingraham, the Ingraham Angle host decided to get in on the fun as she pulled out her impersonation of Brzezinski. “First of all, I have to say about Continue reading "Laura Ingraham Pulls Out Her Mika Impression After Hannity Plays SNL Clip Mocking Morning Joe"
If there is one thing Fox News’ Sean Hannity loves, it is going off on his competitors. You’d be hard-pressed to find a recent broadcast of his where he didn’t spend at least some time railing against the “Destroy Trump Media” and taking shots at CNN and MSNBC. And, apparently, Sean REALLY loves it when one of his guests goes off on members of the mainstream media. At the end of a discussion on conservative’s belief that there is anti-Trump bias at the FBI and DOJ and how it’s negatively impacting the Russia probe, conservative radio host Mark Levin decided to lash out at the media for not covering what he believed are the real stories regarding the investigation. “As for the media in this country, we have a free press. That’s fine. We also have a stupid press. A very liberal press. A partisan press. When I watch this

As Chris Cuomo mediated a passionate discussion about President Trump on Monday night, he took a moment to acknowledge his butchered comments today with regard to Raj Shah. When Cuomo hosted CNN’s New Day panel discussion about Trump’s “sh*thole” remarks this morning, he partially forgot Shah’s name. Cuomo ended up getting scolded by White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders for brushing through the incident by referring to the White House Deputy Press Secretary as “Raj whatever-his-name-is.” Cuomo hosted another conversation about Trump’s comments on Prime Time, and things got heated when Van Jones began sparring with David Urban. As the two discussed the racial elements and patterns of Trump’s behavior, Cuomo invoked his earlier flub while noting the blowback he’s been seeing.
“Why do I say his name slowly like that? Because another part of the distraction here is I forgot Raj’s last name this morning. IContinue reading "Chris Cuomo Acknowledges Raj Shah Flub on Air: ‘I Apologize For That’"
Tucker Carlson led his show tonight by hammering away at the “elites” and moral superiors in the media who have expressed condemnation for President Trump’s remarks about “sh*thole countries.” Carlson vigorously defended Trump last week when the president’s remarks first came to light, and on Monday evening, he snarked about people who have argued that all immigrants are “more impressive” than American citizens, regardless of origin. “The question is, do they really believe that?” Carlson asked. “Do they really think that all standards are arbitrary and racist and everyone from everywhere is exactly the same level of awesome? For an answer, ignore what they say, take instead a close look at how they live.” Carlson proceeded to compare the immigration to college admittance and schools like Harvard who are highly-selective in the students they take in. Carlson also invoked corporate hiring by noting that major companies don’t Continue reading "Tucker Carlson Mocks Outrage Over Trump’s ‘Sh*thole’ Remarks: ‘Sickening and Hypocritical’"
Over the weekend, the website Babe published an account of an anonymous woman’s encounter with Master of None star Aziz Ansari. The piece provided a very detailed and graphic retelling of the 23-year-old’s date with Ansari that was what she called “the worst night of her life.” The way it was described in the article, she provided non-verbal and verbal cues that she didn’t want to have sex with him that evening, but did engage in oral sex with Ansari. Meanwhile, Ansari has released a statement addressing the accusation, stating that he understood the sexual activity that night to be “completely consensual” but has taken “her words to heart” and “responded privately” to the woman. And the article has led to quite a bit of debate over whether Ansari’s actions constituted sexual misconduct or assault. This evening, HLN’s Ashleigh Banfield joined the discussion by delivering an on-air open letter Continue reading "Ashleigh Banfield Blasts Aziz Ansari’s Accuser: ‘You Have Chiseled Away’ at the #MeToo Movement"
