Rick Santorum Says Media Politicizing McCain’s Death. Here’s How CNN Panel Responded.

Published

The media is always on the prowl for some new way to take a figurative sledgehammer to President Trump and bash him three ways from Sunday, so it should be no surprise that since the passing of Sen. John McCain over the weekend, news outlets have been doing their best to find some way to use this tragedy as a means to attack the president.

Former presidential candidate Rick Santorum made an appearance on Chris Cuomo’s show on CNN where he called the media out for this kind of shenanigans. You can pretty much guess how the panel responded. It wasn’t pretty.

“I just don’t think it does anything to the memory of John McCain to use him as a cudgel to beat up the president,” Santorum told Cuomo. “The media seems to have this fascination to try to use the death of John McCain to further belittle and beat up Donald Trump.”

Cuomo shot back, saying, “You think we need to do that to find reasons to criticize the president? This is a moment that matters.”

Bakari Sellers then accused the GOP of becoming a party of “cowardice” under President Trump, with members trying to “contort themselves into pretzels” as they defend Trump’s behavior.

“The fact is, you have John McCain who is a war hero. Even my Democrats, even the people on the left who want to chastise him for whatever his policy may have been, we’re saying that now is not the time,” he said. “You have a president this week who did not stand up and show the best of what we can be, and that’s a problem. John McCain deserves all the glory today.”

Sellers added: “You don’t have to kowtow like Rick’s doing right now on TV and make excuses for a president who does not deserve excuses.”

With that, Santorum referenced Cuomo’s brother, Andrew, castigating America as being “never that great” in a speech last Wednesday. It was then that the panel erupted into a schoolyard slap-fest.

“You’re so petty,” Sellers said, shaking his head.

Cuomo interjected: “Come on, don’t play cheap. You talk about my brother … you can’t do better than that? I’ll give you a hundred things about my brother that are true that are much worse than that.”​

Santorum is absolutely spot on here. The mainstream media will do anything within their power to find something to justify some sort of attack on President Trump and his administration. Even when he does good things, they still find a way to flip it and make it negative.

Right now, Trump bashing sells. They play it all off as if it is some sort of crusade to rid the world of corruption and evil, but at the end of the day, it’s about two things: money and the progressive agenda.

The left-wing media is nothing more than propaganda producers for the Democratic Party. They are likely rewarded in many ways for their service and are thus willing to sell out the American people to get ahead. Tragic, really.

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

WATCH: NC Man Slings Rabid Bobcat Across His Front Yard

WOW!

For many North Carolinians, neighborhood living brings with it the peace of mind that the most invasive animals you might have to deal with are squirrels who are trying to rest in your attic, or raccoons hoping to fatten up from your trash can.  The Tar Heel state has some bears, sure, but they’re not often the pestering or dangerous type like you might see in the Pacific Northwest or parts of California. But one man this week got up close and personal with a seriously frightening creature this week, after it lunged at his wife from underneath their car. A disturbing video captures the moment a rabid bobcat attacks a North Carolina woman—and the moment her husband grabs it off her and throws it through the air. Kristi and Happy Wade of Burgaw were walking to their SUV to take their cat to the vet the morning of April 9 when the growling animal ran across the street and attacked, WIS-TVreports. After throwing it several feet, Happy Wade eventually shot it after it ran into the couple’s garage and then continued to charge, ABC 11 reports. A neighbor who had been jogging by at the time stopped to help and called 911. Video of the incident is simply unbelievable. https://twitter.com/nojumper/status/1383145940807163904?s=20 The bobcat was injured by Wade and later euthanized by local law enforcement.  An autopsy revealed that the animal was indeed rabid, and the family has been undergoing treatment for their numerous bite wounds.
