If you ever want to know what liberal Hollywood really thinks, just watch a Shonda Rhimes show. In about every other episode she has characters going off on thinly veiled self-righteous liberal monologues. Tonight, ABC’s Scandal had two separate characters rant about "white men" and "country people."

On Thursday's Closing Bell on CNBC, Rob Reiner repeated his charge that Donald Trump's supporters are "not all racists, but there is a strain there." Host Bill Griffeth wondered, "Don't you think just people are angry — they're angry at Washington; they're angry at their boss?" Instead of immediately pointing to "racism," Reiner admitted that "there is a big chunk of Trump supporters who are very upset at the income inequality." However, he added that "there is a strain of racism that's there — because when you go to the Sanders rallies, there are no racists at those rallies!"

On Wednesday's Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield on CNN, after host Banfield suggested that it might be a disadvantage for presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump to choose Newt Gingrich as his running mate because "He's not a woman, and he's not black or a minority," far-left CNN political commentator Marc Lamont Hill jumped in to crack that "He's perfect! He's perfect for Republicans," inspiring laughter from a nearly all-liberal panel.

Left-leaning CNN host Banfield was joined by a conservative-free panel consisting of one liberal, one far-left liberal and one socially liberal moderate Republican for a discussion of the aftermath of Tuesday's Indiana primaries.

Appearing as a guest on Tuesday's Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield, far-left CNN political commentator Sally Kohn oddly brought up the Indiana Ku Klux Klan from the 1920s as evidence of the state being "socially conservative" and "racially divisive," and therefore a place where GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is likely to win by a landslide.

Her analysis was so bizarre that even the left-leaning Ashleigh Banfield stepped in to "stick up for" Indiana residents who "would absolutely disavow that."

Appearing as a guest on Saturday's Smerconish show, CNN political commentator Errol Louis -- political anchor for Time Warner Cable News -- began the segment by blaming Donald Trump for violence by left-wing protesters near his appearances, and concluded the segment with an admittedly "snarky" comment as he sarcastically praised Trump because "he hasn't been endorsed by any Ku Klux Klan leaders lately, so that's one nice thing."

CNN's Brian Lowry reported Comedy Central "fake news" anchor Larry Wilmore drew "groans and grimaces" on Saturday night with a typical White House Correspondents Dinner routine that leaned heavily to the left. He suggested Fox News was racist: “Welcome to Negro Night here in Washington. Or as Fox News will report, ‘Two thugs disrupt elegant dinner in DC.'” Wilmore ended his set by thanking Obama for having been the country’s first black President: “I’m going to keep it 100: Yo, Barry. You did it, my n*gga!”

A few months back, some maintained that Ted Cruz was ineligible for the presidency because, in their view, he wasn’t a natural-born citizen of the United States. In a Thursday article, Jeb Lund made an even more extreme argument about Cruz, suggesting that he isn’t even a full-fledged person. Specifically, Lund opined that both Cruz and his would-be running mate, Carly Fiorina, are “spectacular failed approximations of human beings,” and huge liars to boot.

Lund also contended that it’d be futile for Cruz to use Fiorina as attacker-in-chief against Hillary Clinton: “Leave aside institutional opposition to equal pay for equal work, forget opposing the re-signing of the Violence Against Women Act…skip over attacks on reproductive rights and ask who came up with the 25 years of ridicule of Clinton…If a quarter century of that bothered Republican voters, then Carly Fiorina is not the solution, especially when her idea of acknowledging a war on women is claiming that Hillary Clinton invented it…And if a quarter century of sexism and legislative scorn didn't bother Republican voters, then what single thing does she change in the slightest?”

The Black Lives Matters folks and their enablers in the press won't like this one bit.

On Wednesday, Washington Post writer Tom Jackman, at the paper's True Crime blog, reported on a rigorous study of police behavior which found that, in his words, "even with white officers who do have racial biases, officers are three times less likely to shoot unarmed black suspects than unarmed white suspects." Talk about busting a meme.

On CNN Thursday night, Sally Kohn sparred with Tea Party News Network’s Scottie Nell Hughes over Donald Trump calling out Hillary Clinton for using “the woman card.” Hughes defended Trump’s statement while Kohn claimed that it was worse on Trump’s side because “most of his supporters are only voting for him because he’s a white guy.”

Last week, a long Vox essay by Emmett Rensin asserted that “contempt” for supposedly “stupid” blue-collar whites -- in response to the exodus of those voters from the Democratic party -- has become pervasive among liberals. The piece has gotten some pushback from lefty writers, including Slate’s Jamelle Bouie, who thinks that Rensin greatly overestimates the spread and influence of what Rensin called the “smug style in American liberalism.”

“The driving reason working-class whites abandoned the Democratic Party is race,” commented Bouie in a Friday piece. “The New Deal coalition Rensin describes was devoured by its own contradictions, chiefly, the racism needed to secure white allegiance even as the party tried to appeal to blacks…Pressed by those blacks, Democrats tried to make good on their commitments, and when they did, whites bolted.”

Appearing as a guest on Tuesday's New Day on CNN to plug her book, The Sleep Revolution, Arianna Huffington of the Huffington Post defended the Post's over-the-top coverage hitting GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Huffington recalled the editor's note that accompanies every article about Trump -- which calls him a "rampant xenophobe" and "racist" who "incites political violence" -- and also defended the publication's recent caricature of what a Trump "war room" might look like if he were elected President. She concluded that "What we are doing is responsible journalism, pointing out the dangers of a Trump presidency while there is still time to avert it," as she accused much of the media of "dereliction of duty."

Reviewing the premiere of liberal CNN comedian W. Kamau Bell’s new show United Shades of America in Monday’s Washington Post, critic Stephanie Merry gushed over Bell’s consistent behavior as “[a] teddy bear of a guy” who’s “relentlessly easygoing” with the first episode being dedicated to hanging out with the Ku Klux Klan (since, of course, they’re supposedly “the core” of the Republican Party).
