CNN’s Cuomo Calls Indian-American Trump Aide “Raj Whatever-His-Name-Is”

Can you imagine if, say, a Fox News host dismissively referred to an Indian-American Democrat, the son of immigrants, as “Raj whatever-his-name is”? The cries of liberal outrage would echo through the halls of politics and media.

But that’s precisely how, on CNN this morning, Chris Cuomo snidely referred to Raj Shah, President Trump’s Principal Deputy White House Press Secretary. Ironically, Cuomo did so in the context of a discussion of racism.

Cuomo said that when the controversy over President Trump’s alleged “s—hole” line first arose:

“We went to the White House when it happened. Raj whatever-his-name-is didn’t back off the words.”


Jennifer Rubin Relies on Haiti’s “S-hole” Status to Argue Against Returning People There!

Sounds like Jennifer Rubin has adopted President Trump’s view of Haiti!

Appearing on Joy Reid’s MSNBC show today, Rubin relied on Haiti’s s-hole status to justify not returning to Haiti those Haitians in the US under Temporary Protected Status. Said Rubin:

“Haiti, which he just called a ‘shithole,’ is not a place that these people can return to, particularly after devastation and some very poor policies on behalf of the United States and others.”


Sharpton Admits: Took Time for Me to Understand MLK’s Message—”Tone Matters”

Say “Al Sharpton” in conservative circles, and the likely response is a recitation of his incendiary past, including Tawana Brawley, the Crown Heights Riot and Freddie’s Fashion Mart.

But people can and do change. And when people on the left change in a positive way, it’s good for us on the right to acknowledge it. So I’m going to say something that might not be well received by some fellow conservatives, but that I believe is true: Al Sharpton has become a more mellow, constrained and responsible person.


MSNBC’s Deutsch: Trump an “Evil, Evil Man”

Donny Deutsch was last to speak during the opening segment of today’s Morning Joe. But from the clenched expression on his face, you just knew that he was loaded for bear. And sure enough, finally given his chance to comment on President Trump’s “s—hole” remark, Deutsch unloaded:

“There’s a word we have to start to use with Donald Trump in addition to all the ‘crazy’ talk we have . . . He’s an evil man. We don’t talk about that a lot. We talk about he’s insane, and he’s crazy, and he’s this. That’s evil. This is just an evil, evil man.”


13 Times in Two Minutes: Obsessed Scarborough Taunts Trump Over Losing to Hillary by 3 Million Votes

Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski claim that President Trump is obsessed with Hillary Clinton. But it sounds like Scarborough’s the one obsessed — with taunting Trump.

On today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough mentioned no fewer than 13 times in two minutes that President Trump lost the popular vote to Hillary by three million votes. Scarborough repeatedly described Trump as having been “crushed” by Hillary.


Trashing Trump, Dem Senator Suggests Russian Meddling Like Pearl Harbor, 9/11

It’s official: the desperate Democrats have lost their collective minds. Unable to demonstrate any collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, the Dems have resorted to insane analogies.

This evening’s Hardball played a clip of Dem Sen. Ben Cardin, condemning President Trump’s handling of alleged Russian meddling and comparing it to . . . 9/11 and Pearl Harbor.


Elizabeth Warren on Oprah: “I Don’t Know” if America Wants Another Celebrity Billionaire

Elizabeth Warren’s presidential ambitions could be crushed if Oprah ran for president. Who wants a whiny Warren when you could have an optimistic Oprah? And the addition of Oprah would also significantly dilute the women’s vote that Warren would be counting on.

But in the current atmosphere, Warren couldn’t very well criticize Oprah when Alisyn Camerota asked her on CNN this morning to comment a possible President Winfrey. So Warren put on a happy face, gushing about Oprah’s Golden Globes speech, calling her “inspiring” and lauding Oprah’s “leadership.”

But then Camerota asked whether America is hungry “for another mega-celebrity billionaire?” Warren could have easily dodged the question. But instead, Warren gave a flat “I don’t know,” before moving on to a laundry list of all the important “fights” she’s involved in.


Chris Matthews: Trump Reminds Me of Homicidal Freak from “Twilight Zone”

Looks like calling President Trump unstable and unfit isn’t enough for liberals like Chris Matthews. The Hardball host has now resorted to claiming that Trump reminds him of a homicidal freak from a “Twilight Zone” episode.

On this evening’s Hardball, Matthews, speaking to “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff, said:

I really mean this, when I was reading your book . . . the mood in yours is a different sense, it’s a scary sense. It reminds me of that Twilight [Zone] episode, way back in the 60s, where there’s this kid with auto-kinetic powers. Ferocious kid with no mental or emotional development, who can kill anybody he wanted to, destroy their lives terrifically, and everybody just pandered to him, pacified him. It’s like there’s an eight-year-old in that West Wing, and everybody around him is scared to death he’ll do something really destructive if they don’t please him that moment.”

Chris, if Trump had those powers, why are you still around?

Obsequious! CNN’s Cuomo Fawns Over Christiane Amanpour

Obsequious? We’ve got your obsequious right here . . .

On his Sunday CNN show, Jake Tapper abruptly ended his interview of Stephen Miller, accusing the Trump aide of being “obsequious” to the President.

But if you want to see a true example of the o-word in action, look no further than CNN this morning. You’ll find a CNN host unctuously fawning over a guest.

Introducing CNN international correspondent Christian Amanpour, Chris Cuomo called her the “perfect guest” and “the best of us.” Cuomo continued the tongue bath at the interview’s end. Bidding Amanpour farewell, Cuomo said, emotion in his voice, “thanks for you.” Can you feel the adoration?
