Watch: Liberal Writer Gets Taken To School For His Treatment Of Trump By Unexpected Source

Huffington Post’s decision to categorize any coverage of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign as entertainment instead of news sparked widespread criticism of the left-leaning site. In a recent appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Thursday, the outlet’s chief White House correspondent received yet another dressing down from co-host Mika Brzezinski.

Sam Stein said of the divisive Trump: “I think we treat him with a bit more seriousness than he deserves, as someone who comments about, you know, rapist Mexicans, and makes fun of John McCain’s service and talks about menstruation.”

Brzezinski interrupted, asking her guest if his site covers Trump as news or entertainment.

“We cover him on our front page,” he acknowledged, “—as entertainment.”

The host shot back that she thinks that policy is “a mistake.”

Urging all involved to “take a breath here,” Stein concluded that a Trump presidency is a novel idea to consider.

Just as with Newt Gingrich’s early lead in the 2012 Republican presidential primary, however, he concluded that “it’s fun to conjure up images of Trump in his pajamas at the Oval Office tweeting late at night, all right, but it’s not going to happen.”

When Brzezinski noted that Stein’s employer does not relegate coverage of other candidates with little chance of winning a general election, he responded: “I’m not saying ignore Trump. I’m saying there are bigger themes we can derive from what he’s doing.”

Exactly what Trump is doing, he opined, is “using this platform to essentially build his own brand.”

Brzezinski called the site’s stance “arrogant and condescending,” charges Stein said he wanted to address in an off-air conversation.

“We’ll talk later about this,” he said.

“Yeah, we will,” Brzezinski confirmed.

Huffington Post Thought It Could Mock Trump. Guess Who Just Got The Last Laugh.

Adding an unmistakable dose of opinion into its coverage of the Republican presidential primary and current front-runner Donald Trump, Huffington Post announced Friday that it would no longer categorize such stories as news. A statement on the site explained:

After watching and listening to Donald trump since he announced his candidacy for president, we have decided we won’t report on Trump’s campaign as part of The Huffington Post’s political coverage. Instead, we will cover his campaign as part of our Entertainment section. Our reason is simple: Trump’s campaign is a sideshow. We won’t take the bait. If you are interested in what The Donald has to say, you’ll find it next to our stories on the Kardashians and The Bachelorette.

Despite the fact that Trump continues to dominate fellow candidates in nationwide polling, HuffPo has decided to unilaterally declare his entire campaign a publicity stunt. Of course, there is little debate regarding the brash billionaire’s ability to attract attention. In fact, he did so in reaction to the recent media snub.

The Trump campaign released a statement Friday pointing out the fact that he came out on top “in the unimportant Huffington Post poll” as well as in several other recent surveys.

“The only clown show in this scenario is the Huffington Post pretending to be a legitimate news source,” his statement continued. “Mr. Trump is not focused on being covered by a glorified blog. He is focused on Making America Great Again.”

Houston Mayor Caught Lying To Huffington Post

Amanda Terkel wrote a story for the Huffington Post claiming that the daughter of the lesbian mayor of Houston, Annise Parker, was denied  a driver’s license because she has two moms. However, this was subsequently shown to be false according to a Huffington Post update.

Parker has recently become more well known nationally for subpoenaing sermons related to homosexuality or the equal rights ordinance passed by the city.

The Huffington Post shared the following tweet from Annise Parker:

Another tweet by Parker followed:

The claims by the mayor were shown to be false according to this Huffington Post update:

UPDATE: 5:15 p.m. — DPS Press Secretary Tom Vinger took issue with Parker’s recollection of events, writing in a statement, “All individuals applying for their first Texas driver license must provide a variety of documents to prove their identity, Social Security Number, U.S. citizenship or lawful presence status, and Texas residency. In this case, the adult applicant did not initially present sufficient documentation to prove residency. Once she provided the required documentation, she was able to complete the transaction. There is no indication that any delay in the process was related to same-sex marriage.

Mayor Parker did not respond to several requests for comment, as reported by the Los Angeles Times.

This Liberal Reporter Just Showed His Ignorance And Got Absolutely Destroyed For It


Needless to say, those aren’t.

The left is so focused on the “militarization” of the Ferguson police that they are now grasping at straws.

But, as we well know, once stupidity reaches the internet, you can be sure it is going to spread like wildfire. Sure enough, it did–and launched a clever hashtag: #CanAnyoneConfirm.

Raunch: Huffington Post Says Friends Should Have Casual, Meaningless Sex

I don’t know whether to laugh, throw up, or both. A reader tipped me to this Huffington Post article by D.A. Wolf headlined: “5 Benefits Of Having a Friend With Benefits.” In case you’re not hip to liberal-speak, “friends with benefits” refers to the “progressive” idea that it’s really cool for friends to use each other for casual, meaningless sex.

What could possibly go wrong?

Writes Wolf:

“Some of us believe that friends with benefits can be mutually enjoyable and perfectly suited to our needs — not just when we’re very young, and not as a matter of explicitly avoiding commitment.

“In fact, it seems to me that friends with benefits gets a bad rap, as if women aren’t supposed to feel desire (in general) or lust (in particular) — especially once they become mothers, or if they’re ‘of a certain age.’”

Yes, nothing says “I respect you” like using your “friend’s” body to sexually gratify yourself.

Wolf then asks the following:

“When we’re putting the pieces back together after a divorce, isn’t discovery of our newly single sexual self part of the process? Don’t we want to enjoy the flirtation, the fantasy, the sensation and the sense of well-being that comes from sexual foreplay and sex itself? Who doesn’t love the jolt of energy, the boost to mood, the sparkle of feeling fully alive that comes from great sex?

“And don’t we feel reassured when we re-engage with our sexual selves after divorce or a tough breakup?”

Yes, again, nothing gives a woman a “sense of well-being” like being exploited for casual sex by some jerk who calls himself her friend, yet uses her like a piece of meat. Giving away the milk for free? Now that’ll earn you some respect. The fellas will be lining up around the corner with marriage proposals. But they’ll have to wait on all your “friends” to get done “benefiting” first.

Ms. Wolf, a veritable fount of “progressive” wisdom, blah-blahs on:

“In my opinion, especially as a mother, if you’re looking for sex but not in a position to pursue something more, whatever exploration you undertake, you owe it to your kids (and of course yourself) to do it safely.”

How thoughtful. Parent of the year material. Hear that, kids? Sure, mommy’s a trollop – and sure, she’s hooking up with all the guys at the office, but she’s “doing it safely.”

Aren’t we proud of mommy?

Wolf drones on:

“One of the advantages of a friend with benefits is freedom from overly romantic attachments. … So why not experiment with your special friend, if the thought appeals to you?”

Exactly! Why not? For that matter, why short-change yourself? Why go gratis? You’re basically there anyway. Fifty bucks a pop would sure help with those Botox injections.

Wolf concludes:

“I admit that I was a fan of the friends with benefits model from an early age. I love being in love, but that sort of attachment doesn’t come around every day. Friends with benefits — in my life — was just right, several times.”

Really? Only several times? Mommy has lots of “special friends,” doesn’t she? Your children must be so proud. “Hey, everybody! Look what my mommy wrote in the Huffington Post!”

And the great news? Once the feds figure out how to make this whole Obamacare thingy work, you’ll get all the herpes meds you can swallow – for free!

Now that is a “benefit” you can share with your friends.
