ABC’s Stephanopoulos wants Trump revenge

This week’s Liberal Media Scream finds that the elites are looking for a little Trump revenge.

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Sunday advanced the liberal quest to further politicize political differences by holding Trump administration officials “accountable” for “wrongdoing.”

On his show, he pressed Joe Biden’s chief of staff Ron Klain about “criminality” during President Trump’s years. Stephanopoulos noted that Biden “has expressed a preference that he doesn’t want his presidency consumed by Trump investigations” but pointed out “that has raised some concerns” with Democrats.

He quoted a congressman’s claim that not holding Trump officials accountable “emboldens criminality by our national leaders” and enables “lawlessness and authoritarianism.” Stephanopoulos then asked: “How do you balance moving forward with getting accountability?”

From ABC’s This Week With George Stephanopoulos:

“There’s going to be some tension between getting unity, getting things done, working with the Republicans, and investigating any wrongdoing that occurred during the

The Secret Service’s Miami field office also has begun looking at physical reinforcements to Mar-a-Largo, the president’s club to which he refers as “the winter White House,” the sources added. These moves are considered unofficial as Trump has yet to concede to Biden.

Miley Cyrus’ ‘Golden G String’ Is ‘Reflective of Donald Trump as President’

Miley Cyrus is just days away from unveiling her highly anticipated Plastic Hearts album, and while chatting with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe on Monday (Nov. 23), the singer opened up about the variety of inspirations behind the album.

“Golden G String,” she shared, was written in “2017 or 2018″ and “is reflective of Donald Trump as president and the men hold all the cards — and they ain’t playing gin, and they determine your fate.”

“This song, which is also about kind of the cross I’ve had to bear, in a way, of saying, ‘I feel like everything that I’ve done has just been up for all the opinions and I guess people being offended and all this sh-t,’ she continued. “But it’s like our president grabs women by the, and you’re mad at me. I’m a pop star. I’m supposed to do these things. I’m supposed to

Cable news has thrived during the administration of President Trump, with viewing levels reaching an all-time high in October. (Los Angeles Times)

Cable news networks are about to learn what it feels like when President Trump leaves the White House on Jan. 20 to make way for former Vice President Joe Biden.

Trump has fueled a five-year run of record ratings and profit for Fox News, MSNBC and CNN that began when Trump first descended the gold-plated escalators of his eponymous midtown Manhattan tower in August 2015 to announce his candidacy for president.

While the rest of the traditional TV business has spiraled downward as consumers have shifted away from pay TV subscriptions and consumed a bounty of streaming video services, cable news has thrived during the Trump administration. Viewing levels

A Pennsylvania federal court on Saturday denied President Donald Trump’s request to block certification of the state’s election results to give his lawyers time to find evidence to support their claims of a fraudulent election system and improper ballot counting.

In a scathing ruling, U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Brann criticized the Trump campaign’s lack of evidence to support its argument to potentially disenfranchise every voter in the commonwealth who cast a ballot  – nearly 7 million.
