As usual, we don’t allowing ignorant comments out of moderation to be linked with an original post, but we will present them in subsequent posts for the purpose of public derision and mockery. As we see fit. We see fit:
Trump should have had a representative there or himself they could put anything they want to in there with nobody looking they insisted everybody leave so to me the warrant is invalid
Ah, right wingnut media propaganda has permeated our cultural substrata. Welcome to 21st Century America.

Over more than 11 years in the U.S. House of Representatives and six before that in the Missouri House, Vicky Hartzler has always attempted to run God’s way.
Will it win her a seat in the U.S. Senate?

With plenty of free advertising like this it could.
Some of the responses:
Not sure God’s way is for everyone to own 12 guns.
Ha. God’s way. I’m sure god wants her to seek personal power by publicly attacking the struggles (her word) of others. So sad.
How could she possibly k ow what “God’s way” is? Does he talk to her? Because you should probably ask if she hears voices.
This coverage is as disgusting as the candidate. #HartzlerIsDangerous #HartzlerIsWrong4MO
Oh sure. Trump is the epitome of “God’s way”
What a ridiculous headline. Since when is it “God’s way” to have the population armed with semi-automatic weapons and have the government work only for the wealthy while refusing healthcare to the millions? #hypocrisy
Can’t believe you gave this bigot a front page feature. Say good bye to my subscription. #Hartzlerisabigot.
Great Easter message Star [….] Maybe give your hate a day off
Ironic, on so many levels.
Anything for a dollar.

@LesterHoltNBC I missed the point in your interview with William Barr (r) where you asked him why he waited to speak out until he was ready to sell his “tell-all” book.

I wouldn’t buy Bill Barr’s book, but I wouldn’t rule out paying to see him shove it up his ass.

Old media never bothers to learn:
Garrett Haake @GarrettHaake
This as the former President also plans to speak from Mar a Lago. A split screen day for a country divided.
Mike Memoli @mikememoli
NEW: @POTUS will deliver remarks at the US Capitol on January 6 to mark anniversary of Capitol siege
One of these things is not like the other.
There will be no rabid nutjob crowd literally smearing feces on the walls in Florida. Though, you can bet the former guy will be throwing shit against the wall just to see what sticks.
The responses are priceless:
Re “A Split Screen:”
No Sir, no split screen for me.
I’m focused on President Biden and not on a past president who was impeached twice, never won the popular vote in two general elections, and is under investigation by New York, And Georgia for possible crimes committed.
Garrett, it’s only split screen if the media allows it. It is not necessary to broadcast the former guy live.
No. There shouldn’t be a split screen and any news outlet that treats it as such is doing a disservice to the country.
Don’t cover him
STOP THE MADNESS
Under no circumstances should MSM cover TFG on January 6th.
This is why half the country stop watching the cable news. This is just infuriating. No words for the constant attack and trauma the media is always putting us through for the sake of ratings. Not getting it from me. I’ll be watching an outlet not carrying DT’s water.
Do you understand the person at Mar-a-Lago has no actual power or bearing on the direction of the country and should not be broadcast as if he is equal to the actual president? What’s not clicking here?
Do NOT give him any oxygen. Are you kidding me??
Split screen? NO. No no no no. Do NOT give him any screen. What the heck are you thinking? If you split screen that, you are fanning the flames.
Why the split screen Garrett? Why any screen at all? Why would this be covered as a comparable news event? At the very least why wouldn’t it be taped and aired (if at all) only with the utmost editorial discretion?
Dude, what side of right are you on?
They’ve all shown their hand in helping our democracy hang on by a thread! It’s sickening
Reminds of the Holocaust and how for years American news refuse to cover it the atrocities- till the war. It’s why till this day, millions say the Holocaust never happened. Thank the media
There is NO REASON for the networks to cover anything that TFG has to say, especially on that day. The network’s blanket coverage of him in 2016 is what got us into this mess.
The country isn’t “divided”. There are those that want to overthrow our government and those that don’t.
You don’t need to cover this in real time, and it’s probably best that you don’t.
It is only a split screen if the media covers it that way. He has the right to free speech; he does not have the right to press coverage.
You, the media, has a choice in who to cover. Make the right one
Maybe don’t cover the dude that lost?
Single screen. “The former guy” is about as played out as disco.
Split screen? Won’t watch any media that does this. Why would they? It only adds to the division giving TFG air time he doesn’t deserve.
It better not be a split screen. TFG shouldn’t get any air time…the media is complicit in giving him too much oxygen as it is.
It’s only a split screen if you give it to him like he wants.
No split screen. He isn’t potus and should have to pay for airtime.
The times will not clash. Nothing really happens at Mar-a-Lago, anyway. When you live in a supper club and wedding venue and get photographed with almost every customer, nothing happens.
No need to cover anyone except for the current president.
“Retiree with pending lawsuits creates word salad with leftovers from 2020.”
Y’all have a choice here, Garrett. Does the media have it in them to do the right thing? Recent history certainly says no. Restore some faith.
News outlets should replay footage of the Jan 6th siege all day.
There is NO reason to cover the former guy. Not on 1/6/22 or any other date. Is he going to unite the country? No. Will he speak of how awful 1/6/21 was? No. Will he say anything new? No. There’s no reason to cover him.
This should no way in hell be any split screen… Please media do better
Only the media can make it a split screen day. Please don’t.
Only if the media chooses to cover it that way.
WHY would the media even consider a split screen?
Too many networks will accommodate his second call to arms. There shouldn’t be any live coverage. News networks can report on his words later with guests ready to provide the factual and legal rebuttals.
Why? Why is there any reason to devote any inches of screen to the circus in Florida?
It had better not be a split screen, Garrett Haake. It would be dereliction of duty for the media to “both sides” this.
Split screen? Seriously?
Who is doing the dividing?

Kasie Hunt @kasie
CA GOV BIG PICTURE: One of the top Democrats in the country got caught living like an elite while everyone else suffered. Elites vs. the rest is the driving force in our politics right now and Democrats have a tough needle to thread both in California & nationwide … (1/)
10:08 PM · Sep 14, 2021
Kasie Hunt @kasie
Democrats need to prove they can govern for EVERYBODY, and if you look at California — it’s not necessarily the best test case for national Democrats (see: concern about homelessness, crime, etc) (2/)
10:10 PM · Sep 14, 2021
Kasie Hunt @kasie
Obviously California is a Special Place — but the fact that a Democratic national star in waiting *faced* a recall and then had to fight hard for it midway through the campaign does say a lot about the potential challenges Democrats face across the map (4/)
10:12 PM · Sep 14, 2021
All that’s missing is an all-caps “DEMOCRATS IN DISARRAY”.
Some of the responses:
The person copying and pasting Republican Party press releases into tweets here is literally @CNN’s “Chief National Affairs Analyst.”
Ah yes, because when Republicans win, Democrats lose, and when Democrats win, Democrats still lose.
Shorter version of this thread: I left MSNBC because CNN is the transition road to fox.
Gov Newsom is “living like an elite” because he went to the French Laundry for dinner?
He is Gov of the largest state in the country and will be earning $218,000 come December
You reportedly earn between $1 million and $1.5 million.
Who’s the “elite”?
Democrats are literally the ONLY ones governing; Republicans stopped governing years ago, and that fact has just been accepted as OK by the beltway media for some strange reason.
And Republicans prove they can govern for EVERYBODY? Please describe how they are doing this today?
Such a national media take.
Dems must govern for everybody.
GOP can govern for its base
You sound like NYT Pitchbot, but you mean it
Meta! Well played, well played.
It was a landslide victory Kasie.
Did you hit your head or something?
Ummm…OC even said “no” to the recall…ORANGE COUNTY. Lady, this diatribe is just outlandishly wrong.
This. Is. Absurd.
Is EVERYBODY only the Republicans and Trump?
Now do Florida and Texas.
We see what you did there.
So I guess the problem is that Newsome didn’t get 100%, yes?
The ratio, it BURNS!
And on and on…
This is why we can’t have nice things.

Someone should look for any correlation between the ABC News results and geographic vaccinations rates. You know, just for laughs.
