  1. Stelter may have found Olbermann’s freak out compelling, but Tucker could barley contain his laughter as he read the rant framed on the left side of the screen while showing a picture of an Edvard Munch “THE SCREAM” painting on the right.

    • They went from pulling their hair out over the thought that we palleable hicks, agitated by traitor Trump, would burn and pillage when HRC won…to turning on a dime and declaring to their audiences that we are in the midst of tolitarian takeover after Trump won.

      Is it any wonder that no one trusts the absurd media?

      They may mention that the FBI and the CIA have conflicting views on the Russia hacking brouhaha, but then act as though the report that suits their narrative is a foregone conclusion.

      As usual, fake news r them disingenuous morons.

  2. Tucker does have great hair, but he’d look better with a haircut that was a bit more structured. Just a bit.

    Men do as they get older, and conversely as women age, they look younger with freer, less structured hair styles. Best thing the very attractive Dana Perrino did was to lose the highly coiffed helmet hair. I take credit for that since I offered that advice when Perrino tweeted about her hair once…

    If women are going to keep long hair into their forties and beyond, it’s best worn up. I’m a big fan of up-dos.

    Okay, I’ll shut up now.

  3. The Reliable Sources host on defending the press now that a ‘big part of the country has opted out of journalism and opted in to an alternate reality.’

    Great, not only am I deplorable, I’m also a moron. Should I ask a friend if I smell bad too?

    • I remember all the way back to when the “reality-based community” were sitting on their thumbs.

      You know…last November.

  4. He’s precocious, and he knows just
    What it takes to make a Zucker blush
    All the boys get out the hose
    When he nuzzles the boss with a brownose.

  5. “Camerota said that for those feeling down due to the holidays or still disappointed by the election outcome, they would find plenty to be inspired by during the event…”

    Dissapointed? I still won’t let doog take off her party hat.?

    • Seeing the videos of Allepo and reading the stories about the treatment of children, Christians and others at the hands of these murderous Muslims is absolutely horrifying. Isn’t THIS what should be headlining the news everyday? We all know why it’s not-because Obama was hands off for years and to report on it would show his failures in a really big way.

      • Agreed. I think the reason the media isn’t reporting on this isn’t because tv honchos fear bored viewers flipping the channel.

        It’s because it’s an horrifying spectacle of the consequences of Obama’s fecklessness.

    • Really interesting. On the ground here in Wisconsin the Dem state party was told there would be no $ for them from HRC or Dem Senatorial Com. They had to raise the $ themselves & after the failing attempt at a recall of Scott Walker and then the failing fight against Act 10 (a rolling back of union bargaining “rights”) there were fewer in state Dems that wanted to spend their $ on this election. Former Sen Russ Feingold (McCain/Feingold fame) was running against Sen. Ron Johnson (of the famous response from HRC “at this point what difference does it make?” and he asked for help either with $ or a high profile visit & they blew him off. I think Chelsea was here 3 times-a waste of time. All turned out well in Wisconsin-biggest for me-Ron Johnson won re-election and the state went for Trump as a follow-up.

  6. Yahoo says hackers stole data from more than one billion accounts. Only Putin and Santa Class could pull that off.

  7. I noticed Shepard Smith getting a little snippy today when somebody didn’t switch quickly enough to a graphic he wanted to reference. Seems to me I recall another such incident this week. I wonder if there’s a reason he’s on edge, other than Trump that is.
