Washington Post Reporters Openly Defend Their Anti-Trump Bias

Washington Post reporters made clear their anti-Donald Trump bias in a little-noticed Twitter exchange Monday.

Post staff writer Joe Heim and reporter Dave Weigel openly admitted that they overlook the outrageous calls for anti-Trump violence coming from the Left, while continuing to flog progressive narratives and glorify protesters of the president.

“In today’s print edition of @washingtonpost, 10 full pages of impact on immigration ban. Please subscribe,” Heim tweeted, promoting his beleaguered newspaper, which is badly in need of subscribers. Heim provided a screenshot of the Post headline, “Trump stands by order as confusion, dissent swirl.”

National tea party leader Debbie Dooley of Georgia jumped in to declare, “You guys are no longer objective. You are nothing more than political propaganda for the left…”

Here is the exchange, in which Dooley calls for the Post to express outrage over Madonna’s recent claim, at the anti-Trump Women’s March in D.C., that she thinks about blowing up the White House. Heim defended his newspaper’s willful blindness toward violent left-wing imagery, saying that tea party activist Ted Nugent once said that Hillary Clinton should be hanged. Weigel chimed in with another partisan remark, saying that the most offensive signs at the Women’s March were ones that quoted President Trump.

It doesn’t matter if you agree with Dooley or with Heim and Weigel. But the following exchange shows that the Washington Post, once and for all, is not even pretending to be anything more than an anti-Trump political operation. How can a supposed reporter possibly defend the practice of overlooking calls for violence on one side of the aisle while hammering conservatives?

Congratulations to Dooley for drawing these egotistical Democratic operatives out into the open. Weigel, of course, is already well-known for helping to mastermind JournoList, a secretive plot by mainstream journalists to fight conservatives in their coverage. Weigel was even fired by the Post for his political activism, several years before getting hired back to cover the 2016 campaign.

Here is the disgusting exchange. Behold your mainstream press in action!

Mitch McConnell Censured by Nelson County, Kentucky Republican Party for Betrayal of President Trump

Kentucky Republicans aren’t happy.

Published

Kentucky Senator and Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has been formally censured by the Nelson County, Kentucky Republican Party, with party officials accusing the establishment Republican of betraying President Donald Trump.

A censure resolution was unanimously approved on Tuesday evening, in response to McConnell’s claim that President Trump was responsible for a raucous protest at the US Capitol earlier this month.

The censure “demands (McConnell) retract his statements impugning the honor of President Donald J. Trump,” referring to claims made that President Trump incited the Capitol riot. President Trump had urged rallygoers to proceed to the Capitol peacefully, before a small minority of those present took matters too far and trespassed onto Capitol grounds, disrupting election certification proceedings.

I think it’s despicable. I think it’s a shame what he did today, because he used us over the past year to get his sorry butt reelected,” said a Kentucky Republican who phoned into the Nelson County GOP meeting in which McConnell was censured. “He used us.

The censure resolution accuses McConnell of  having “abandoned his Republican base that put him in office.

McConnell has even gone so far as to suggest that he’d consider convicting President Trump in an impeachment trial, even after he’s left office. Such a development would represent no less than a final, ultimate betrayal of President Trump, with legal experts suggesting such a move isn’t even legal, with the Senate lacking jurisdiction to convict a private citizen.

Kentucky Republicans are also pushing for a rebuke of McConnell within  the Kentucky Republican Party at the state level, and activists aim to pass a resolution requesting that McConnell shut down a second, hoax impeachment trial of President Trump, who has since left office.
