He wants to talk about "truth, lies, and leadership," and most of the time he's just forced to say the phrase "pee tape" over and over again.
Tapper was correct — that interview was a waste of our time, Ken Tucker says. Here's why other news folk should take his lead and call interviews to a halt.
Saturday Night Live pulled Alec Baldwin back in this week for a sketch imagining that Donald Trump will still be president in the year 2018. Having host Scarlett Johansson play Ivanka was probably an inevitability — the actor’s glossy beauty is itself a gloss on Ivanka’s: they both end up complimented by association. The ad was nauseating but not because it “attacked” Ivanka.
Watching morning and afternoon cable news in the run-up to Tuesday night’s presidential address to Congress, it was all about theme and possibility. “The theme is going to be the renewal of the American spirit,” MSNBC’s Kristin Welker said to Andrea Mitchell. “Again and again, we’ve been told it’s going to be optimistic,” said Jeff Zeleny on CNN.
Anticipation was high for Saturday Night Live this weekend: Alec Baldwin, who’s been playing Donald Trump as a manipulated suckerfish, was host. It was a likely bet that Melissa McCarthy would reprise her instant-sensation Sean Spicer. Well, OK, that last rumor seems to have been primarily floated by Rosie O’Donnell.
There was no poetry read during the inauguration of Donald Trump early Friday afternoon. “It’s going to be only America first, America first,” said Trump, who gave a raised-fist salute at both the start and the finish of his speech. In a phrase that was immediately taken up and spread like wildfire on social media, Trump invoked “American carnage”: “The crime, and the gangs, and the drugs that have stolen so many lives… This American carnage stops right here, right now.” Of course, to those who oppose Trump, “American carnage” became one more bit of foreshadowing of the gloom-and-doom Trump’s critics believe his presidency ushers in.
As a TV event, the first press conference by President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday was a continuation of the method Trump established during his campaign. It served another purpose: It ate up time, limiting the number of questions Trump would answer.
During the course of the election season, Samantha Bee used Full Frontal to launch attacks on poor behavior and hypocrisy from both the Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton (and, for that matter, Bernie Sanders) sides of the campaign. Postelection, she’s also emphasizing something that was often implicit in her satirical critiques: the role of the media in allowing dreadful things to happen to the American public.
Entering and exiting to the music of Katy Perry, quoting from the hit musical 'Hamilton,' Hillary Clinton accepted her party’s nomination for the Presidency and concluded the Democratic Convention on Thursday night with a fiery speech that reached out beyond her loyalists, to try and appeal to both Bernie Sanders devotees and Republicans disaffected by their own candidate, Donald Trump.
Exasperation was the tone of the third night of the Democratic convention on Wednesday — exasperation with Donald Trump for having gotten as far as he has.
The opening night of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia was characterized by a mixture of defensiveness, self-righteousness, and whininess.
Trump Victory, Cruz Withdrawal Cap A Crazy 24 Hours of TV News “When you think of Indiana,” said Brian Williams on MSNBC Tuesday night, “you think of auto racing, of David Letterman—and now this is one more thing they’ve exported to the world: complete chaos in the Republican Party.” This was one of the more vivid turns of phrase deployed on TV news as its anchors grappled with the decisive Donald Trump primary win in Indiana followed by the exit of Ted Cruz from the race. Over on Fox News, Bill O’Reilly, who as he’ll tell you, “called Indiana for Trump” three weeks ago, said Tuesday night that Trump is going forward toward the Presidency with “this new cabal to vote for him,” of “independents and populists” and not-necessarily-conservatives.
