Time to cut the cord on media’s Trump bashing
I’m not going to get rid of my cable — I am on Newsmax for an hour a day, after all — but I am watching less and less.
I’ve been making a list and checking it twice, ‘cause so many of these chattering skulls have been naughty not nice.
Sooner or later I am going to cut the cord, probably sooner, and the moment gets closer every time something like this past week happens.
Do I really need to watch a Fox News anchor, who spent election night at the White House, who likes to hang out at Mar-a-Lago, suddenly urging POTUS to concede “with grace and composure?” (Laura Ingraham, this means you.)
Why am I seeing a smug Fox News anchor cupcake rolling her eyes as a Trump lawyer suggests there’s some fraud here. (Sandra Smith, this means you. She’s an LSU grad, and what Randy Newman once said about LSU grads certainly applies to her — “went in dumb, come out dumb too.”)
And why the hell is another Fox host cutting off the White House spokesperson for Trump when she talks about the election fraud, saying, incoherently, “I can’t in good countenance continue showing this to you.” (This means you Neil Cavuto. I can’t in good “countenance,” whatever the hell that means, watch your Biden agit-prop.)
Here’s a few other things that are bugging me:
A pablum-puking MSNBC “historian” who swoons over how great Joe Biden’s speeches are, and then it turns out he’s been writing them. (This means you Jon Meacham — who do you think you are, Bowtie George Will?)
Any Democrat who doesn’t put air quotes around “glitches” anytime he or she mentions one fraud or another.
Any alleged pundit who says President-Select (as opposed to Elect) Joe Biden faces the greatest challenges of any president since the Civil War. (Too many to list.)
Anyone who compares Dementia Joe to FDR. (That would be you, Doris Kearns Goodwin, who has apparently forgotten that Joe once said that FDR was president during the stock market crash of 1929 and that he then went on TV to deliver a fireside chat.)
Anyone on TV who spent the last four years screaming “Russia! Russia! Russia!” who is now saying that anyone who has doubts about the election is not “patriotic.”
Anyone who says that all reports of ballot fraud have been “debunked.”
Anyone who says that the “adults” are now going to be in charge.
Anyone who mentions the potential of a “coup,” without acknowledging what the four-year-long Russia-Russia-Russia hoax was.
Anyone who says that Trump voters need to behave like Democrats did in 2016, as adults, and “suck it up.” (This would be you, Whoopi Goldberg.)
I also can’t stand hearing anymore about new jobs for the ever-dreadful Emmanuel brothers, Rahm and Dr. Death.
No pollsters, nowhere, no how, no way — that’s all I ask.
Ditto so-called fact-checkers who only check up on one party, actually only one guy.
Don’t need any tweets for any show biz snowflakes talking about now America will now be “free of harsh words and name calling.” (Mick Jagger, this means you.)
Don’t want to see anybody who ever voted for the Communist Party candidate for president. (John Brennan, this means you.)
Don’t want to see anybody who lied to Congress under oath sitting on the set saying he’s now telling the truth. (Brennan, again, and James Clapper, and a few others.)
And while we’re on the subject, I don’t need any lectures from Democrat operatives who were fired from the FBI for corruption. (Among others, this means James Comey, Andrew McCabe and Peter Strzok.)
And why doesn’t any talking head ever mention how convenient it is that we apparently get a vaccine after the election, and that the aforementioned McCabe finally testifies to the Senate about the phony FISA warrant he obtained … after it was too late to sway any votes?
Speaking of the Panic, whatever happened to the ever-rising COVID-19 death count on the side or the bottom of every left-wing cable-news screen?
All those scary, black-bordered charts just vanished on Nov. 4.
How come none of the anchors have ever noted the fact that suddenly, once again, like during the post-George Floyd looting and arson sprees in the spring, it was safe for Democrats to be outside, partying, not social distancing, not wearing masks?
Why must I be lectured by an MSNBC anchor who doesn’t even know how many votes there are in the Electoral College? (I’m talking to you, Joy Reid.)
I don’t ever need to again see any of Fox News’ Democrat cheerleaders: Chris Wallace, Donna Brazile, Marie Harf, Juan Williams, Chris Stirewalt, etc. etc.
See ya later, RINO backstabbers like Willard M. Romney and J. Danforth Quayle.
Basically, what I’m saying is, when it comes to cable news, except for my own show, include me out.
