Democrats are desperate: Libtard actress knows how her fictional character would take down Donald Trump

Imaginary characters are now the libtard’s solution to their Trump Derangement Syndrome. Oh Hollyweird, you never disappoint.

From HuffPo: Veronica Mars is no stranger to the art of the takedown. The teen-sleuth-turned-badass-private-eye has orchestrated the destruction of everyone from dognappers to secret society members (shoutout to the Tritons!) over three seasons of “Veronica Mars” and, of course, the fan-funded film continuation in 2014.

But in this political climate, fans are not only clamoring for new episodes ― more on that later ―  but also curious about how their quick-witted hero might respond to a man like Donald Trump becoming president. Let the record show that Veronica doesn’t exactly have the best track record with authority.

When we sat down with Kristen Bell earlier this month, she revealed exactly how her alter ego would react to Trump — and her plan of action for unseating him from power.  “Veronica would definitely fly smart and under the radar and infiltrate,” Bell told The Huffington Post. “She would run for office immediately.”

Remember, Veronica always stood up for the underdog and called out injustice where she saw fit. Whether it was exposing corruption in the Neptune Sheriff’s Department or outsmarting her privileged 09er classmates, if there’s anyone who could go toe-to-toe with 45, it’s Veronica.

Joking that a Trump-inspired storyline might be the perfect fit for the series’ long-awaited next chapter, Bell quipped, “That’s a good idea. Oh, my god, that’s very topical.” 

And as for the six-episode miniseries “Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas teased earlier this year, Bell urges fans not to give up hope just yet. Scheduling and the pair’s busy schedules ― Thomas is at the helm of the CW’s “iZombie,” while Bell stars on NBC’s “The Good Place” ― are the biggest impediments.

“Rob and I are constantly talking about it. He actually called me recently,” she explained. “The thing is, we have to work around our current jobs because I have a contract that doesn’t allow me to do another TV show, but possibly a miniseries. It might be labeled something different, but ‘Veronica Mars’ is not dead and gone in our minds at all.”

C’mon Netflix, this is the America we want to see.

Cowards – and bast*rds: Networks censor rape of 14-year-old girl in Maryland by an illegal alien

cover my child

The narrative must not be destroyed…even if an American citizen (child) is raped and sodomized. Shame, shame, SHAME on the State Run Media (SRM).

Attention SRM: Read the police report here. The VICTIM of this rape by an illegal alien had her 14-year-old anus penetrated by the illegal alien’s penis. She replied “stop” several times during her rape. Before penetrating the child/victim in the anus, the illegal alien forced his penis inside the victim’s mouth. She cried out IN PAIN.

SHAME on you for not reporting the truth to protect your narrative. SHAME ON YOU!

From Newsbusters: The “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC continued their shameful blackout into Wednesday night of the horrifying alleged rape of a teenage girl in a Washington D.C. suburb high school bathroom by two men, including one here in the U.S. illegally. 

Instead, the pathetic liberal media that’s shown no interest in the Rockville High School case complied with Rolling Stone in giving over 10 minutes of coverage in two days to the fake 2014 claim that a University of Virginia fraternity gang raped a female student.

Before breaking down how blind the media were in furthering a narrative about college fraternities and sexual assault (which can be a noble cause), the pro-illegal immigrant media were surely displeased with the Fox News Channel’s Special Report as it again offered a story on the events in Montgomery County, Maryland.

Fill-in host James Rosen noted that “the Maryland State House of Delegates has approved a bill to make Maryland a sanctuary state…just days after Maryland authorities charged two immigrants, one of them confirmed to be here illegally, in the alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl in a Rockville High School bathroom.”

Correspondent Doug McKelway provided the latest from the school and told viewers how the cowards with the school district banned TV cameras from Tuesday’s packed PTA meeting as “[t]he red-hot controversy…lit up social media.”

McKelway also noted how the school district has shifted their focus from the rape to blaming average citizens for being outraged about how such a thing could have happened.

At the same time, local and state Democrats went ahead with their desire to make Rockville and Maryland a sanctuary city and state, respectively. This was despite strong opposition from Republican Governor Larry Hogan.

Schwarzenegger quits ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ cites ‘baggage’

schwarzennger-and-trump

Trump is the obvious scapegoat for anything or anyone these days…

I watched a couple episodes of this show. It wasn’t that bad. But the finale was the LAMEST thing ever – NOTHING compared to when Trump did live finales. It just didn’t have the same wow factor, in my opinion.

From Yahoo: Arnold Schwarzenegger is terminating himself. The action star says he’s quitting NBC’s The New Celebrity Apprentice, which suffered low ratings during his tenure this year.

In a statement obtained by EW, the actor said, “I loved every second of working with NBC and Mark Burnett. Everyone — from the celebrities to the crew to the marketing department — was a straight 10, and I would absolutely work with all of them again on a show that doesn’t have this baggage.”

While the former California governor did not specify which “baggage” he’s referring to, one assumes it as something to do with the reality show’s former host, President Donald Trump. The president berated Schwarzenegger repeatedly for delivering low ratings, and some viewers pledged to boycott the show due to Trump’s executive producer credit. There was also a recent unconfirmed report that advertisers ditched the show due to the credit as well.

NBC insiders say that they have not yet made a decision on whether to bring back Celebrity Apprentice — with or without Schwarzenegger. It seems unlikely the broadcaster would have renewed the show without any changes given its ratings woes (the show averaged about 4 million viewers per week and its finale placed last in its time slot). Plus there was the controversy over Trump’s producer credit (as somebody who helped launch the show, NBC is contractually obligated to keep his name on it).

So Schwarzenegger could be making a preemptive move here — you can’t get dumped by somebody if you break up with them first. (Or, perhaps a more appropriate metaphor, you can’t get fired from a job if tell your bosses to shove it).

The Trump vs. Schwarzenegger most famously came to a head during the National Prayer Breakfast last month, when the president said, “When I ran for president I knew I had to leave the show, that’s when I knew for sure I was doing it. And they hired a big, big movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger to take my place, and we know how that turned out. Ratings went right down the tubes, it’s been a total disaster, and Mark will never, ever bet against Trump again. And I want to just pray for Arnold if we can, for those ratings. But we’ve had an amazing life together — the last 14, 15 years. An outstanding man. Thank you for introducing me.”

To which Schwarzenegger shot back on Twitter: “Hey Donald, I have an idea. Why don’t we switch jobs? Since you’re such an expert in ratings, then people can finally sleep comfortably again.”

A libtard’s idea of comedy: “Barron will be this country’s first homeschool shooter”

katie-rich-tweet

The edgy womyn Katie Rich and her comedic tweet.

From Daily Mail: A Saturday Night Live writer has been blasted for declaring 10-year-old Barron Trump will become ‘this country’s first homeschool shooter’ in a now deleted tweet. 

Katie Rich fired off the tweet on Inauguration Day, only to delete it three hours later and set her account to private after she faced a barrage of criticism. The comedy writer was branded ‘scum’ by Twitter users who called for her account to be blocked while others urged NBC to fire her.

Just after noon on Friday, Rich wrote: ‘Barron will be this country’s first homeschool shooter’.

Critics slammed the writer for her ‘tasteless’ joke and called her ‘sick’ and ‘disgusting’ for targeting Trump’s youngest child.

Sam Janney, tweeting under the username @PolitiBunny, wrote: ‘Kids are off limits…and the internet is forever. Shameful @katiemaryrich’

Dennis ONeill wrote: ‘@latiemaryrich what’s your problem. Do you get off picking on little kids? No wonder SNL is garbage these days. You work for them.’

Some Twitter users demanded that she apologize, while several others called for NBC to terminate her contract.

Rich deleted the tweet hours later and set her account to protected, even though that seemed to anger some social medias even more as they continued to berate her online.

The 10-year-old, who accompanied his family to Washington DC this weekend, has been thrust into the limelight as the first son to live in the White House since John F Kennedy Jr. But Barron will be staying put in New York with Melania Trump until he finishes out the year at the Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School, where tuition starts at $44,120 for those enrolling in pre-K.

And let NBC know what you think of Katie’s “comedy.” Contact NBC here.

FYI: As of midnight last night, Katie’s Twitter account no longer existed. Gee, I wonder why?

Donald Trump’s media summit was a ‘f—ing firing squad’

Works for me. Biased liars had it coming.

media's O amnesia

Via NY Post: Donald Trump scolded media big shots during an off-the-record Trump Tower sitdown on Monday, sources told The Post. “It was like a f–ing firing squad,” one source said of the encounter.

“Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,’ ” the source said.

“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added. A second source confirmed the fireworks.

“The meeting took place in a big board room and there were about 30 or 40 people, including the big news anchors from all the networks,” the other source said. “Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong.’ He addressed everyone in the room calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was [a] network of liars,” the source said.

“Trump didn’t say [NBC reporter] Katy Tur by name, but talked about an NBC female correspondent who got it wrong, then he referred to a horrible network correspondent who cried when Hillary lost who hosted a debate – which was Martha Raddatz who was also in the room.”

The stunned reporters tried to get a word in edgewise to discuss access to a Trump Administration.

“[CBS Good Morning co-host Gayle] King did not stand up, but asked some question, ‘How do you propose we the media work with you?’

Chuck Todd asked some pretty pointed questions. David Muir asked ‘How are you going to cope living in DC while your family is in NYC? It was a horrible meeting.”

Trump spokeswoman Kellyanne Conway told reporters the gathering went well. “Excellent meetings with the top executives of the major networks,” she said during a gaggle in the lobby of Trump Tower. “Pretty unprecedented meeting we put together in two days.”

The meeting was off the record, meaning the participants agreed not to talk about the substance of the conversations.

The hour-long session included top execs from network and cable news channels. Among the attendees were NBC’s Deborah Turness, Lester Holt and Chuck Todd, ABC’s James Goldston, George Stephanopoulos, David Muir and Martha Raddatz. Also, CBS’ Norah O’Donnell, John Dickerson, Charlie Rose, Christopher Isham and King, Fox News’ Bill Shine, Jack Abernethy, Jay Wallace, Suzanne Scott, MSNBC’s Phil Griffin and CNN’s Jeff Zucker and Erin Burnett.

Arthur Sulzberger, publisher of The New York Times, plans to meet with Trump Tuesday. There was no immediate comment from the Trump Team.

The NFL is blaming its horrible ratings on the election

As Dr. Eowyn reported in September, the NFL is losing viewers in Kaepernick blowback. The ratings continue to slide and yet, somehow, it is the fault of the elections. The NFL is stuck on stoopid.

kaepernick-taking-a-knee

From Yahoo: The NFL is blaming its horrible TV ratings on the election, according to a leaked memo to team owners obtained by the Wall Street Journal.

Every single one of the NFL’s primetime offerings (Sunday, Monday, and Thursday Night Football) is down double-digits, according to Sports Illustrated. Overall, NFL viewership is down 11% this year.

The NFL wrote that the drop in primetime was likely because of “unprecedented interest in the Presidential election.” The letter went on to reference the 2000 election as another period of time when NFL ratings went down.

The NFL is not the only one to make the connection. In an interview with Sports Business Daily, Mike Mulvihill, a senior VP at Fox Sports, said the current season reminded him of fall of 2000, a year which included the race between Al Gore and George W. Bush. 2000 was the only year during the decade 2000-2010 where the NFL saw a downtick overallSports Illustrated notes.

nfl-players-taking-a-knee

One thing the NFL said was not affecting ratings was fan backlash against players protesting police brutality by not standing during the national anthem. “In fact, our own data shows that the perception of the NFL and its players is actually up in 2016,” the NFL wrote.nfl-players-blm-movement

Alternative theories

There are a few other theories on what might be affecting ratings this year, however, that have nothing to do with Donald Trump. In a meeting with analysts at Pacific Crest, CBS, one of the NFL’s TV partners, cited three reasons:

  • Small sample sizes (there haven’t been enough games yet)
  • Injuries
  • Unfavorable matchups (for instance, NBC’s last “Sunday Night Football” had a Steelers-Chiefs matchup that was down 26% from last year, but last year’s game was Saints-Cowboys, and the Cowboys are the NFL’s biggest TV draw)

Lastly, there is a far more troubling explanation: people are losing gradually losing interest in live sports, and big TV “spectacles” in general.

NBC had a disastrous TV showing at the Olympics, which saw a sharp viewership dip for the first time since 2000. NBC’s Olympics primetime broadcast was down 15% versus 2012. The damage was even greater among younger people. Among 18- to 49-year-olds, there was a 25% drop for the bulk of the games, according to Bloomberg Intelligence.

NBC Developing Dramedy Inspired By Former Texas Senator Wendy Davis

The Adventures of Abortion Barbie?

wendy davis

Deadline: Wendy Davis made national headlines in 2013 for filibustering anti-abortion legislation in the Texas Senate. Now the former Democratic state senator is poised for more national attention as the inspiration for a dramedy series in development at NBC.

Written by Jennifer Cecil, the untitled project centers on a female Democratic senator who, after losing the Texas governor’s race, gets her world turned upside down. In the vein of The Good Wife, while she pieces her pride back together, she goes to work in the law firm of her best friend — a black male Republican — and discovers that with no political future to protect, she can unshackle her inner badass.

Cecil and Davis executive produce alongside Sue Naegle via her Naegle Ink banner and Karen Sherwood. Universal TV is the studio.

A Harvard-educated lawyer, Davis represented District 10 in the Texas Senate from 2009-15. She made national news in June 2013 when she staged an 11-hour filibuster to block a Senate bill imposing major new restrictions on abortions. The filibuster, which drew support from President Obama, was successful, but the bill ultimately passed. The move made Davis a political star, leading to a run for governor last year, which she lost in the general election. Since then, Davis had been working on a new women’s equality initiative targeting millennials.

Former Private Practice executive producer/co-head writer Cecil is an an executive producer on NBC’s upcoming medical drama Heartbreaker. Her résumé also includes stints as a co-executive producer on AMC’s Hell On Wheels and CBS’ Hostages.
