  1. So…the Jake Tapper blathering about ‘Allahu Ahkbar’ said under beautiful circumstances was the biggie all over Twitter yesterday. He just repeats what liberals say to make sure he stays on their good side.

    • “I’m gonna run you over with my truck”, can be beautiful in the right circumstance… give me a little time while they collect the body parts, and I’ll come up with something.

    • Using that logic, there were many beautiful and lovely weddings in 1930s Germany that included them saying “Heil Hitler”. So what?

      • The only time the media feels the need to differentiate Christianity from religious extremism is on behalf of someone who harbors religious precepts that have heretofore never been teachings of traditional Christianity.

  2. Geraldo Rivera was on Hannity last night and said the solution to these sort of terrorist acts was for U-Haul and Home Depot to ask anyone who tries to rent a truck, “What are you going to do with the truck we rent you? Are you going to be running any people over?” I kid you not, that was his solution, along with putting concrete dividers wherever there is a bike lane.

    • A bit surprised by Shep’s very strong numbers. I so can’t stand his drama routine during breaking news, I watch CNN. Clearly I’m in the minority.

      • I agree. Shep is absolutely one of the most talented spur-of-the moment news coverage anchors ever, but if the breaking news is more fraught than a stray circus animal, he eventually gets to scowling, snarking, and seemingly taking all things personally.

      • I watched his network broadcast coverage during the 4pmet hour , I still genuinely like him . I couldn’t watch CNN’s coverage because CNN always feels a bit much to watch on a normal day, worse during breaking news.

  3. FBI reporting they are looking for another suspect in the NYC truck massacre. Didn’t Mayor McCheese say scragglybeard was a lone wolf?

  4. Hi Johnny , I thought Shepard Smith beat Hannity in the ratings last night.
    In both the Demo and Total numbers ?

  5. Re: CNN journalist

    Sanitized to keep you from running out and busting the heads of an ethnic group that votes 78% for Democrats.

    Because that’s what you do, you awful, racist, blood-thirsty, Christian white conservatives…
