GOP Debate II: Donald Trump’s Best Liunes and Zingers of the CNN Republican Debate … “He (Obama) Just Doesn’t Have Courage, There is Something Missing From Our President.”
Republican GOP Debate on CNN …
It was the Donald Trump show once again as all of the other GOP candidates tried to knock The Donald off his perch. However, as usual Trump got off some zingers and lines that will be covered by the media in the post-debate analysis. Probably his best ones were pointed at Jeb Bush, especially when he said the following … “Your brother and your brother’s administration gave us Barack Obama.” Followed up with the disappointment with George W. Bush’s presidency made it impossible to elect a Republican to succeed him: “It was such a disaster those last three months that Abraham Lincoln couldn’t have been elected.”
Love him, hate him or if you are indifferent, Trump has a point.
Donald Trump did it again. After an explosive first debate in which Trump clashed with the moderators and stole the show, the bomb-throwing frontrunner came out swinging at the second Republican debate in Simi Valley, California, on Wednesday. He dissed Rand Paul (twice), put down George Pataki and hit Jeb Bush with a backhanded compliment. He also had plenty of praise — for himself and his business record.
Here are his 14 most quotable lines from the second Republican debate. (read here)
- As you know, these commentaries are pre-recorded so I don’t know at the time of recording how the debate went. I do know that CNN is hoping for some “fireworks” between candidates as it would be good for ratings!

Donald Trump Wows the Crowds in Dallas, Texas … Asks the Audiance if They Like the Media … Response a Resounding BOOO!!! … They Will Name that Wall After Trump (VIDEO)
DONALD TRUMP GOES TO BUSH COUNTRY AND DRAWS 20,000 PEOPLE …
The folks in Dallas turned out in huge numbers for Donald Trump as he packed the American Airlines Arena. There is an expected 20,000 that is supposed to attend. Not a serious candidate establishment Republicans, keep dreaming that little dream. Here is a note to the establishment GOP and to all of the media, including FOX News, the people are fed up with your BS and lies.
“If you like the media, give them a big hand and if you don’t give them a big boo.”
Unlike most of the go along to get along establishment Republicans, Trump has tapped into an issue that has been steaming under the surface for quite some time, illegal immigration. Trump said during his sold out event, we are going to build a strong wall. This is a Trump wall, not one of those walls where you go but a ladder at Home Depot and jump over it. Trump went on to say, “Because some day when I am gone, they are going to name that wall after Trump.” And the crowd ate it up!
Daily Commentary – Thursday, August 27, 2015 – Have You Noticed Donald Trump is Spending More time on CNN and MSNBC Lately?
- Likely due to his “flap” with Megyn Kelly. Megyn is one of Fox’s top commentators and I’m not sure if fighting for her will help or hurt Trump

Daily Commentary – Monday, June 15, 2015 – Some in the Media are Just “Out to Lunch” … CNN Anchor Fredricka Whitfield Called the Dallas Gunman “Courageous and Brave”
- Like CNN Anchor, Fredricka Whitfield who called the Dallas gunman “Courageous and Brave”. WTF?
UPDATE I: The CNN anchor was forced to backtrack following the furrow that ensued from the comment … claims she misspoke.
Misspoke? This liberal media fool purposely used the words “Courageous and Brave” to describe the Dallas gunman who fired upon the police. Now, because of the backlash against her she is coming up with the lame apology of, I misspoke. Whitfield told views on Sunday, “I in no way believe the gunman was courageous nor brave.” REALLY … THEN WHY DID YOU SAY IT!!!
CNN host Fredricka Whitfield has addressed the controversy surrounding on-air comments she made during coverage of the shooting at Dallas Police headquarters, saying she “misspoke.”
“Yesterday, during a segment on the Dallas Police Department attack, I used the words ‘courageous’ and ‘brave’ when discussing the gunman. I misspoke,” Whitfield told viewers on Sunday. “I in no way believe the gunman was courageous nor brave.”
LEFTWING MEDIA HAS GONE TOO FAR THIS TIME … CNN’s Brooke Baldwin Blames Military Veterans for Baltimore Riots (Update: Apologizes on Twitter. Finally on TV)
LIBERALISM TRULY IS A MENTAL DISEASE … WELCOME TO THE DEMOCRAT-MEDIA COMPLEX.
While doing an interview with Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) in the midst of the turmoil on the streets of Baltimore, CNN’s Brooke Baldwin had the audacity to blame military veterans for the Baltimore riots. WHAT? This liberal media-insanoid literally blamed vets coming home saying, “I love our nation’s veterans, but some of them are coming back from war, they don’t know the communities, and they are ready to do battle.” Really, you love them, I would hate to see if you didn’t love them what you would say. Welcome to the LEFT-wing media of today that does not report the news, but instead tries to pain a narrative that does not exist. Sorry, ESPN suspended foul-mouthed ESPN reporter Britt McHenry went off on a tirade on a impound lot employee, CNN should fire Brooke Baldwin for these false and ugly comments. But they won’t because this is the hate and bias that consumes liberal media outlets today.
Hmm, so what is Brooke Baldwin’s message, or should i say smear … Don’t hire vets because they are too unstable to be trusted? But don’t worry, she loves them.
After more than a year of CNN pouring gasoline all over America with hysterical, and oftentimes phony, stories of American racism, the left-wing network’s afternoon anchor Brooke Baldwin finally took it to the next level by blaming American veterans for the Baltimore riots.
In a pathetic suck-up interview with Democrat Congressman Elijah Cummins, Baldwin never once had the moral courage to ask the failed Baltimore City congressman if the left-wing policies ushered in by a half-century of a Democrat monopoly in Baltimore might have something to do with the city’s ills. Instead, she said of young military veterans who become police officers, “I love our nation’s veterans, but some of them are coming back from war, they don’t know the communities, and they are ready to do battle.”
The context was a discussion about increased training and retraining for the Baltimore police.
There’s no question Baldwin is hoping to launch a narrative with that smear.
UPDATE I: Brooke Baldwin apologized like a coward hiding behind her Twitter account. Sorry Brooke, you don’t get to make such inflammatory, hateful and defamatory comments like you did stereotyping our brave American vets on TV and then apologize on Twitter. What a brave soul you are. Get your butt on TV and apologize. Then I want you to go to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD, she’s not that far away and apologize in person to wounded vets.

CNN’s Brooke Baldwin this morning may have done the impossible: Deliver a mea culpa that the nation’s apology police cannot possibly puncture, dismantle, nitpick or otherwise trash.
Sweeping, tendentious nonsense. Baldwin offered no evidence to support her case that somehow battle-scarred veterans from recent wars were responsible for any of the policing problems in the country’s big cities, let alone in Baltimore. People on the Internet let her know of their disapproval. Baldwin’s first response was a bit weak:
That defense doesn’t work at CNN, which sells itself as a purveyor of straight-up journalism around the clock. So what if some hack “vocalized” a concern to Baldwin? Isn’t it her job to filter that concern, fact-check it and pat it down before “re-vocalizing” it?
Given some more time to think about it all, Baldwin this morning came around. Early this morning, she tweeted.
On CNN’s “New Day” program Baldwin said the following:
I made a mistake yesterday. We were in the middle of live TV, I was talking to a member of Congress, and I was recounting a story, a conversation I had had recently just referring to police. And I absolutely misspoke, I inartfully chose my words 100 percent and I just wish speaking to all of you this morning: I wholeheartedly retract what I said. And I’ve thought tremendously about this, and to our nation’s veterans, to you — this is just who I want to speak with this morning — I have the utmost respect for our men and women in uniform. And I wanted you to know that this morning, so to all of you, I owe a tremendous apology. I am truly sorry.
Sorry Brooke if I don’t believe a word of your apology. You meant every word you said, and that’s okay, just own it. You are a bed-wetting liberal who doesn’t know any better and repeats hateful BS. That’s okay, just say it.
EXIT QUESTION: Replace “VET” with “BLACKS” and does Brooke Baldwin have a job this morning?
- Contrary to O’Reilly’s claims, CNN has published a recording of O’Reilly from the 1970s that indicates he was not present outside the Florida house where an associate of Lee Harvey Oswald committed suicide.

Sen. John McCain Defends ‘Low-Life Scum’ Remark to Code Pink Protesters … If the Low-Life Scum Fits, Wear It
HEY TOOTS, IF THE SCUM FITS, WEAR IT!
Sen. John McCain appeared on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ Sunday morning and defended his comments calling the Code Pink protesters low-life scum. The CNN host asked McCain if that was the way he would handle it again. McCain responded with the following:
“These people were physically threatening. I am used to people popping up at these hearings and yelling and escorted out. That’s at least some version of free speech. These people rushed up. They were right next to Henry Kissinger, waving handcuffs at him. He’s a 91-year-old man with a broken shoulder who was willing to come down and testify before Congress, to give us the benefit of his many years of wisdom. Of course I was outraged and I am still outraged. Its one thing to stand up and protest, its something else to physically threaten an individual, particularly an individual who has served so much for his country, whether you agree with him or not.”
But the CNN host just could not let it go, she said, but you called them scum. As if that was the end of the world. Forget the fact that this out of control mob tried to physically threaten a 91 year old man, he concern was someone’s word. McCain responded by saying, “I think they are terrible people. Okay, I think they are terrible people that would do that to a 91 year old man with a broken shoulder, to physically threaten him. That is beyond any norm of behavior that I have ever observed. They literally surrounded him and were physically so in such close proximity to him that he was in danger of being harmed.”
He said the protesters — one of whom held handcuffs above Kissinger’s head — put him “in danger of being harmed.”
“These people were physically threatening Henry Kissinger,” McCain told CNN’s Dana Bash Sunday on “State of the Union” as he defended his comments.
“I’m used to people popping up at these hearings and yelling, and then they’re escorted out — that’s at least some version of free speech,” he said. “These people rushed up. They were right next to Henry Kissinger, waving handcuffs at him. He’s a 91-year-old man with a broken shoulder who was willing to come down and testify before Congress, to give us the benefit of his many years of wisdom. Of course I was outraged, and I’m still outraged.”
- For the 13th year in a row, Fox tops cable news with CNN and MSNBC in the cellar. CNN ratings are at an all time low in 2014.
THE WINNER AND STILL CHAMPION …
For the 13th year in a row, the FOX News channel is the most watched cable news network for 2014 outdistancing the competition by a long shot. It is pretty bad when all three competitors CNN, MSNBC and HLN do not combined add up to FOX’s numbers.
As 2014 draws to a close, FNC celebrates its 13th consecutive year as the most-watched cable news network, though it too had its disappointments. In total day, FNC is down 4% in total viewers (1.05 million) and same percent in news demo viewers, though it finished laps ahead of its competition in both metrics.
FNC rings out the year ranked No. 4 among ad-supported basic cable networks in overall primetime audience, behind only ESPN, USA Network and TNT; it also ranks No. 4 in total. CNN and MSNBC are way back in the 20s and 30s.
“We’re going to keep opening up our aperture, while investing in original reporting on the broad range of stories that move and inspire Americans,” Griffin said in that memo to staff and LAT.
Fox News remained on top in 2014, capping off its 13th consecutive year as the most-watched cable news network among both total viewers and the A25-54 demo. FNC averaged 1.05 million total viewers and 213,000 in the demo. FNC beat CNN and MSNBC combined in both total day and in primetime in viewers
The ratings for 2014 (Nielsen Live + Same Day data):
- Primetime (Mon-Sun): 1,748,000 total viewers / 300,000 A25-54
- Total Day Mon-Sun): 1,050,000 total viewers / 213,000 A25-54
MSLSD MSNBS MSNBC had a terrible 2014.
2014 not only saw MSNBC’s ratings drop more than any other cable news network, but it was also the year it finally started to trail CNN in most major metrics.
In the primetime demo, MSNBC was down 17% to 169K, putting it solidly in third place. In primetime total viewers, MSNBC held on to second place but still fell 8% to 589K. The network’s total day numbers are even worse, dropping 18% in the demo to just 108K and 12% in total viewers 347K.
Despite being MSNBC’s highest-rated hour, The Rachel Maddow Show at 9 p.m. still hit all-time lows since its 2008 debut with 843K total viewers (down 2% compared to 2013) and 196K viewers in the demo (down 18%). Those drops were nothing compared to Morning Joe, which had its lowest-rated full year on record with 347K total viewers (down 15%) and just 100K viewers in the demo (down 26%).
