Big loser on Tuesday? TV hosts

I avoided television on Tuesday night and followed the election online. Had a wonderful time. Unfortunately, I missed the breakdowns and the barking mad reaction of the Hillary-supporting millionaire snobs who give the national news. Fortunately, Media-ite filled me in.

First from Media-ite:
CNN’s Fareed Zakaria declared today that a Donald Trump victory is “Putin’s dream come true, in a sense.”
He told Brooke Baldwin that most of the world is beyond shocked by what just happened, but not Russia.
Zakaria said Putin wanted someone like Trump who could weaken sanctions against Russia and tell the world to not be so tough on Russia.
Born in India, has an exotic name, yep, Zakaria knows what is happening everywhere around the world and can speak for 8 billlion non-Americans.

Too bad he couldn't tell the election outcome before Tuesday.

ABC News’ Martha Raddatz began to choke up during the network’s 2016 Election Night coverage when discussing the ramifications a President Donald Trump might have on the military.
Raddatz, one of the 2016 debate moderators, sounded shaky from the get-go. “Donald Trump, I questioned what he would do about Syria and his understanding of military policy and civilian/military divide, I don’t know that he really has a plan for what he’s going to do there,” she said.
Speaking of understanding Syria, who drew that line in the sand? Who didn't enforce it? Who armed the "rebels" who turned out to be the Islamic State.
The report added this:
This post has been edited since it was originally posted. The headline has been changed to better reflect Martha Raddatz’s reaction.  An ABC News spokesperson also responded to the article by saying that it was “ridiculous and untrue.” In fairness to Raddatz, at the time of this report, she had been on air for nearly 7 hours live reporting about the election. 
Disney is a multi-billion-dollar company and it could not afford to have people to relieve her as anchor when she was tired?

That's unfair. The better comparison is a doctor on 24-hour call. They don't get a pass on malpractice just because they are tired.

And on CNN, communist Van Jones said:
“This was a whitelash. This was a whitelash against a changing country. It was a whitelash against a black president, in part. And that’s the part where the pain comes. And Donald Trump has a responsibility tonight to come out and reassure people that he is going to be the president of all the people who he insulted and offended and brushed aside.”
Racist. If this were a century earlier, Jones would be in klansman garb saying the same thing about black people.

And on The View:
Today on The View, Whoopi Goldberg backed up Van Jones‘ assertion that the election of Donald Trump was partially a “whitelash” against a black President.
Well, Goldberg, it wasn't rapey rape.

Finally, from the Daily Express:
As various major US news networks prepared to confirm the Republican's victory over Hillary Clinton, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow gave a bitter response while live on air.
The sombre host told MSNBC viewers, as Mr Trump edged towards victory: “You’re awake by the way.
“You’re not having a terrible, terrible dream. Also you’re not dead and you haven’t gone to hell.
“This is your life now, this is our election now, this is us, this is our country – it’s real.”
Yes, it is our life.

And it is beautiful.

But then again, I am not a millionaire.


"Trump the Press" skewers media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. I use my deadliest weapon: their own words. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.

The sequel is coming.


  1. In honor of Chrissie Tingles:
    "He's lost that tingle feelin'. wohoh
    that tingle feelin'. now it 's gone gone, gone.."

  2. That's goooood, TG!

    As Conan said, "Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. Hear the lamentations of their women." And OH, how their women are lamenting!
    Van Jones, Obama didn't apologize for what he said about us. Whoopie, we don't mind his black half, or his white half, but his arrogant socialist whole.

  3. Don, not only the TV hosts, but the networks they rode in on (oooooooooold military reference, here).

  4. Except on the Fox business channel the nets were heavily Trump negative. The women anchors and guests seemed under the greatest strain. Even their make up was disintegrating, a strange thing to watch as they attempted to remain calm and "objective". Clearly they had invested heavily in Clinton on a very personal level. I assume now they will devote themselves to getting her off the legal hook by way of a pardon. They will have an easy path with the emails but the foundation quicksands will be harder, more dangerous to traverse, more makeup stressing. How close to her will they dare to walk?

  5. "Nov. 8th: "Love Trumps Hate"
    Nov. 9th: "People Have to Die""

    Hillary's reaction to the election returns in private.

  7. "These election results defied all the polls, but I still don't understand how they could contradict this other thing that's also a poll."

  8. the way people reacted to trump winning it's kind of like suddenly nazis were marching down the streets burning books, except the only people marching down the streets burning things are anti-trump

    1. Funny that. I noticed that too. All I can think of asking them is: "Hypocrite much?"

  9. remember when mccain and romney lost, how we had weeks of armed insurrection by white militiamen who had to be put down by the army


  11. Behind The Chicago Shutdown not really any new info here, just a good, brief account of how the government, press, and DNC teamed up to sic violent blacks on Trump supporters

  12. "Newsweek recalls 125,000 copies of its souvenir Madam President issue"
    "17 copies were sold"  Send one to the Trump presidential library

    1. My, my, my. That was some expensive mis-placed confidence, don't 'ya think? I wonder who's performance evaluation that'll be pinned on? Hubris is expensive, one way or another.

    2. I went to the bookstore early Wednesday to see if I could snag one, but there were none on the shelf where Newsweek normally is.


  14. Yesterday a lady who evidently thought she knew me well enough to suggest that I should not be so happy because there were people around who supported Hillary. LOL!! She said she was a peacemaker. I asked her if she was shitting me. She left me to enjoy visiting with my friends.

  15. They're all feeling the early symptoms of RDS (Relevance Deprivation Syndrome).

  16. If it's a "whitelash" against a black president maybe these booger eatin' moh-rons can explain how a black president got elected twice? Liberal logic on display.

  17. Good Lord what a bunch of childish crybaby wusses. Deport Zakaria or whatever his name is, he is a whiny overrated low-wattage social promotee turd of a pretender.
