There seems to be no place left where Americans can turn to escape the left’s never-ending meltdown over Donald Trump being President. Late night comedy shows, fashion magazines, the Miss America pageant, telethons for hurricane victims, and of course, one of the first places to allow inappropriate infusions of leftwing politics, ESPN. The latest political outburst from the former sports network comes courtesy of anchor Jemele Hill, who felt compelled to take to Twitter to blast Trump, among other things accusing him of being a “white supremacist.”
It inspired Tucker Carlson on Fox News to dub ESPN the “Endless Stupid Political Nagging” network. Because of that, a lot of viewers got tired of yelling, “Everyone Stop Pontificating Nightly!” at their screens and canceled their subscriptions. ESPN higher-ups issued a statement saying they had “addressed this” with Hill, who now “recognizes her actions were inappropriate.”
A reminder: when longtime “SportsCenter” anchor Linda Cohn criticized ESPN’s drift into leftwing politics that’s alienated its core viewers, she was suspended. When conservative baseball legend Kurt Schilling tweeted his opposition to same-sex bathrooms, he was fired. But when Hill slanders the President as a white supremacist, they “addressed it” with her and on sails her career.
One of these reactions is not like the others. Hmm. I wonder what the difference could be?…
32 Excuses, By Mike Huckabee
Hillary Clinton’s book has been out for only one day, and the number of excuses she’s given for her loss to Donald Trump has now been tabulated at around 32 (somehow, despite her “taking complete responsibility,” it’s still everyone else’s fault.) But here’s one I’ll bet you didn’t see coming: she blasts the New York Times for its “shoddy reporting” of the 2016 election. I thought for a moment we’d finally found something Hillary and I could agree wholeheartedly on, but it turns out she actually believes the Times was too rough on her. I guess they didn’t get the memo that it was their job to elect her. I mean that literally: thanks to WikiLeaks, we know there were actually DNC memos to that effect.
