On Monday's New Day, several CNN regulars hurled attacks at GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee for his characterization of President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran as "marching" the Israelis "to the door of the oven." Words like "ugly," "dangerous," and "despicable and terrible," were thrown at Huckabee's comments across two segments.

A Monday New York Times editorial compared transgender access to restrooms to the civil rights-era struggles against Jim Crow laws as well as women’s rights and Americans with disabilities. The Times argued that banning transgender students from bathrooms that do not align with their sex at birth “reinforce[s] cruel policies that deny dignity to some of the most vulnerable students and subject them to more bullying and stigmatization.” The editorial made a civil rights comparison: “African-Americans challenged Jim Crow laws that barred them from so-called white restrooms.”

ABC's Nightline hyped a polyamorous, "trailblazing triad" on Thursday evening/early Friday morning, highlighting the threesome's "unusual modern family." ABC's Abbie Boudreau eagerly explained that 'this triad wants to make it clear that they are not polygamists," and that they are all sexual partners with each other.

After the movie theater shooting in Lafayette Thursday, liberals of all stripes came out in droves to push for stronger anti-gun measures, as they typically do. Despite the location being a “gun-free zone,” Democrat politicians, media personalities and actors insisted that more gun laws would prevent these type of tragic incidents.
Bernie Sanders advocated for banning “certain types of guns exclusively used to kill people, while President Obama audaciously said that guns kill more people than terrorism.
Here are some more equally stupid statements made by famous liberals on why banning guns would eliminate violence.

According to ABC analyst Matthew Dowd, Republicans shouldn't "go overboard" on news that Hillary Clinton sent classified information via e-mails from her private server. Dowd appeared on Good Morning America, Monday, to lecture: "If I were the Republicans, I would let that go. Part of the problem they have is if they go overboard on it."

The Media Research Center's Brent Bozell appeared on Fox Business, Monday, to dismiss the idea that journalists might somehow be turning away from Hillary Clinton. "No, no they're not," declared Bozell. Regarding a criminal investigation into whether the Democrat sent classified e-mails from a private server, the MRC president noted that after initial coverage, "Day two they were already leaving it. Only CBS that night did a story on it, which to me is amazing. Sunday, it was back in the news. Neither ABC nor CBS covered it."

Appearing on Friday’s PBS NewsHour, New York Times columnist David Brooks reacted to the tragic shooting at a Louisiana movie theater last week by immediately calling for “doing all the gun control you can think of.”

During an appearance on CBS This Morning: Saturday, reporter Paula Reid desperately urged viewers to not blame Hillary Clinton if a possible Department of Justice investigation reveals she sent classified State Department documents from her private e-mail server: "This particular issue really shouldn’t have any impact on Clinton. The issue of the e-mails has been out there for a long time. This is not a criminal matter. In fact, it’s far from it. If there are any questions about trust -- trustworthiness it comes from the New York Times or the Department of Justice."

Once again, loon-left publication The Nation reminds us that in this time of exquisite PC sensitivity, we can all still hate on Israel.

It's a point of pride at Morning Joe that the show is unscripted. But in a notable deviation that might reflect the gravity of the moment, Joe Scarborough clearly seemed to be reading off a teleprompter today as he promulgated a damning indictment of Hillary Clinton's mishandling of classified information on her private email system. Scarborough's statement was interspersed with clips of Hillary making statements about her email use that in light of the Inspectors General statements seem clearly to be untrue.
Even more ominous for Hillary and her presidential ambitions was that none of Andrea Mitchell, Mark Halperin nor Ron Fournier--who claimed that as a former Arkansas resident he had probably voted more often for Clintons than any other journalist in DC--deigned to offer a defense of Hillary's actions.

The liberal media is on high alert for “transphobia,” especially when it comes to Bruce Jenner. No one is allowed to joke he’s still a male with male body parts. That’s doubly true for anyone in the entertainment industry, so you can imagine the reaction when rapper Eminem did a rap about tucking the bulge.
“Eminem’s freestyle rap slurs Caitlyn Jenner” was the USA Today headline. McPaper has become a blue-ribbon champion in political correctness. Kelly Lawler began on Friday:

2016 GOP presidential candidate and former Texas Governor Rick Perry is fighting a legal battle against an out-of-control Lone Star State county. That county's prosecutor has sued Perry, claiming that a) he committed an illegal act of "coercion" by threatening to veto legislation funding a "public integrity" office headed by Travis County's Rosemary Lehmberg, who was convicted of drunk driving in 2013 but refused to resign; and b) that he committed another illegal act by carrying out his veto promise. In effect, the County wants to criminalize Perry's exercise of his then-gubernatorial duties.
A Texas Court threw out the "coercion" contention on Friday. The Associated Press's Will Weissert was clearly quite displeased.

On Saturday's CNN Newsroom, host Fredricka Whitfield brought aboard liberal American University Professor Allan Lichtman to get his views on why recent presidents have had so much difficulty in passing new gun control laws. Lichtman, whose history of running as a Democrat for the U.S. Senate in Maryland was not mentioned, was given an unchallenged forum to push for more gun control in which he predictably derided the National Rifle Association.

The Brooklyn birth-control clinic to which Planned Parenthood traces its roots opened in the fall of 1916, but according to Molly Redden, there’s concern on the left that the two recent so-called sting videos have damaged PP’s reputation to the point that the organization might not even be around for its hundredth anniversary.
“That Planned Parenthood is the target of a withering attack by anti-abortion activists is no surprise,” wrote Redden in a Thursday piece. “But this time seems different, with some of Planned Parenthood's strongest allies drawing nervous comparisons to the 2009 sting operation that destroyed” ACORN. Redden contended that the videos have taken the focus from PP the “critical women's health care provider” and instead made it “seem like a sinister outfit that profits wildly from abortion.”
