Appearing as a panel member on Monday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of proposed religious freedom laws in states like Mississippi and the bathroom law in North Carolina, CNN political commentator Margaret Hoover slammed the measures as "draconian laws that dismiss LGBT people."

For his part, host Don Lemon labeled the laws as "crazy" after liberal Republican Hoover recalled polling that suggests most Republicans prefer to back down from opposing same-sex marriage in the aftermath of the Supreme Court ruling.

On Monday’s edition of The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, the Comedy Central host couldn’t get through a rant against Bill and Hillary Clinton without taking a cheap shot at GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz. Wilmore noted the former First Lady once used the politically incorrect term “super-predators.” Wilmore reported that even the criminologist who coined the term had disavowed it: “He’s ashamed of his creation, like Dr. Frankenstein or Ted Cruz’s parents.”

Twitter doesn't find anything abusive or threatening about Azealia Banks tweeting a call for former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin to be gang banged.  At least, that's what one assumes as they recently came out in defense of the filthy mouthed rapper.

To quickly recap, Banks tweeted that Palin, "'get headf****d by a big, veiny, ashy black d**k' and for 'the biggest burliest blackest n*****s' to 'run a train on her.' This tweet was in response to a story Banks saw where Palin allegedly said, ".black people willingly accepted slavery." That "story" was from a satirical website where Banks apparently gets her news.

Add this to the seemingly endless list of "Imagine what would happen if Republicans or conservatives did the same thing" items.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary "I don't feel no ways tired" Clinton and New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio rolled out a very tired, old and insulting racist stereotype this weekend. The headline at Stephanie Condon's report on the related event at CBS News only described it as a "race-based joke." Meanwhile, the Associated Press kept the nature of the "joke" out of its headline, and the wire service's Jonathan Lemire would only concede that "some people feel" that the "comedy skit" in which the pair engaged "was racially insensitive." Here's what happened, from the first four paragraphs of Condon's report (bolds are mine throughout this post):

Esquire's Charles Pierce unleashed on Paul Ryan on MSNBC's All In on Monday during a panel discussion on a possible presidential bid by the House speaker: "I think he's as ambitious as Satan. I think he doesn't want to go out in the country where he was already deemed not worthy of the vice presidency, and try to run for president. But if they offer him the crown, he would loathe to lay his hands off it. So, yeah, I think he's running."

In a recent radio interview for BigBoyTV, comedian George Lopez let us all know that he’s endorsing Senator Bernie Sanders, while paradoxically, making it known he doesn’t want to pay any more taxes.

The co-hosts of CBS This Morning on Tuesday devoted an exhaustive seven minutes to Republican presidential candidate John Kasich. What Charlie Rose really wanted to know, however, is just why GOP voters are following “the path to darkness.”

On Tuesday, all three network morning shows surprisingly hit Hillary Clinton and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for making a “racially charged joke” during a failed comedy skit at a press dinner.

Morgan Freeman disappointed some fans during Sunday’s episode of National Geographic’s “The Story of God” when he downplayed Islamic terrorism, saying Islam aims for peace.

News reports of Islamic extremism by “a tiny percentage of Muslims” do not reflect the mindset of the majority of Muslims, Freeman said.

Shades of Chris Matthews' infamous thrill up his leg when listening to Barack Obama in 2008 . . . Fast forward to 2016, and we have ostensible Republican Nicolle Wallace getting the good kind of "chills" up her arm when listening to . . . Hillary Clinton talk about gun control.

Morning Joe today played a clip of Hillary saying that many of the guns used to commit crimes in New York come from Bernie Sanders' home state of Vermont. For once, Clinton eschewed the grating tone that sends so many of us scrambling for the mute button. And that was enough to have Wallace, gesturing to her arm, say: "that -- that attack on the guns is so, you know, I got chills. This is the third time I have heard it."

Fox's Lucifer is a show that takes the Biblical concept of Heaven and Hell and turns it on its head. The main character Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) is literally the devil experiencing life on earth, but outside of Hell he is actually pretty good while his angel brother is very bad outside of Heaven.

Despite the decay of the left-dominated blue-city model during the past several decades, liberals and the press are not fans of many urban neighborhood improvement efforts.

One recent example found at a national media outlet is at Newsweek, where on April 2, Alexander Nazaryan, in an item headlined "WHITE CITY: THE NEW URBAN BLIGHT IS RICH PEOPLE," wrote that "gentrification ... turns cities into playgrounds for moneyed, childless whites while pushing out the poor, the working-class, immigrants, seniors and anyone else not plugged into 'the knowledge economy.'" In Cincinnati, the same tone was unfortunately present in the Cincinnati Enquirer's Sunday coverage of the situation in the city's Over-the-Rhine neighborhood 15 years after that area's race riots made national news.

The CBS show Supergirl gave us a glimpse into a liberal dream world where there are no divisions, "Only one people, working with one purpose, towards one goal." In fact, some of the lines from the episode "Myriad" seem ripped right out of John Lennon's "Imagine." The way to this utopia? Mind control, of course. Oh, how liberals WISH they could turn us all into mindless drones!

In a long rant on Monday’s Full Frontal with Samantha Bee on TBS, the former Daily Show comedian complained that food stamps don’t cover the cost of diapers as she ended by somehow blaming conservatives and pro-lifers. Bee mocked conservatives: "Look, you whiney babies, if you didn't want to wallow in your own fifth like a Dickensian orphan, you shouldn't have chosen poor parents. It's called personal responsibility."

MRC president Brent Bozell appeared on the Fox Business program After The Bell on Monday to discuss the strange Boston Globe fake front-page mocking what “President Trump” was doing in the White House.

Former New York Times reporter Judith Miller praised the stunt as " a very creative response to make people pay attention to what Donald Trump has been saying," but Bozell wasn’t having it, as Fox Business host Melissa Francis pointed out the Globe’s precarious business situation:
