Local TV News Said WHAT?! About Trump’s Supreme Nomination

By Debbie Schlussel

The Most Dramatic Rose Ceremony Ever

Unless you live on another planet or inside a mushroom, you probably know that tonight at 9:00 p.m. Eastern, President Trump will announce his latest Supreme Court nomination (and I hope there are more–Notorious RBG, it’s time to go). Given the importance of this nomination to our country’s future, I was a little surprised at what topped off my local TV station’s newscast tonight.

While I was cooking dinner (actually a late lunch of pan-fried cod), I had Detroit’s ABC affiliate WXYZ-TV running on my kitchen TV. They topped off their newscast with this announcement:

To our viewers, we wanted to let you know that tonight’s episode of “The Bachelorette” will not be seen continuously and will be interrupted for President Donald Trump’s announcement of his Supreme Court nomination.

It was said like an apology. Priorities. What the BLEEP happened to this country?! And how is this “news”?

Also, they pre-empt everything for some dumb soccer tournament and nobody bats an eye (maybe because soccer fans are from all the countries that hate us). But nominate a Supreme Court Justice and dare interrupt a silly male harem show, and it’s like committing mass murder, apparently.

By the way, you could clearly hear the disdain in the voice of anchoratrix Glenda Lewis (she got the job by nepotism–her mama was the previous anchor). I mean, how dare Donald Trump act Presidential and name a Supreme Court pick?! And this is after more than a couple of years of these guys saying he doesn’t “act Presidential.” So intellectually dishonest. They really just don’t like it when he does act Presidential.

Well, there is one minor resemblance between that vapid silly show filled with attention-whoring slutty himbos and bimbos: we get to see the real “most dramatic rose ceremony ever.”

I just hope Trump gets to hand out more Supreme Court final roses in the future. Hey, Breyer, time for you to say bye-bye, too.

It is time for the ancient and unloved to depart. Ruth Bader Ginsburg needs to sign up for AA, rather than sit on the bench.

Brett Kavanaugh is probably the best choice, if you consider how narrow the Republican majority is in the U.S. Senate.

    Any nomination by President Trump is going to bring a battle and that battle will be played out in the mainstream media. Kavanaugh will be called every name in the book and then some.

Contrast TV stations’ reaction to this interruption with the years Obama was in office and prime-time programming was shelved in favor of one of his pronouncements. You didn’t hear the yappers in the media complaining then . . .

The long awaited nomination. Now the expected whining by the media and of course the unhinged morons! I can hardly wait for RBG to drop out one way or the other! Imagine we DT gers more nomination in his second term!

I was hoping to hear which nominee out of the final 4 you were rooting for.

I want to see the end of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, too.

    According to one of my confidential sources, she’s on the verge of announcing her retirement.

    Primetime on July 10, 2018 at 11:06 am

As the Bachelorette continued, we learned that one of the hot guys in her eyes is 26 and a virgin. The look on her face and her apparent disappointment was telling. And she had been accusing this same man of sleeping with one of her friends.

“Himbos” — excellent portmanteau.

Libtards heads explode EVERYWHERE! I LOL’d that the moonbat protesters had anti-Kavanaugh signs ready…must have been pricey to make a bunch of FOUR different name signs…but a great analogy of how Libtards are…it don’t matter WHO it was…they are against IT! Or THEM. Robotic thinking. Lemming thinking and actions. That’s why the sad lot of brainless Libtards need to be kept at bay.

DS was right (as always…). Here are the bimbos is action…

Predictable nomination. McConnell pick means another Roberts lifetime appointment. America won’t be getting the return on the investment.

Mochizuki Koga on July 11, 2018 at 12:36 am

    if not for Mitch, we would have gotten stuck with Garland; he blocked the Dems and we owe him for that

    seaslug on July 11, 2018 at 10:21 am

      Don’t be stupid. It’s Trump’s selection. He could have gone with anybody but because Trump can do no wrong McConnell somehow did us right?

      Mochizuki Koga on July 12, 2018 at 2:07 am

Agree with seaslug McConnell doesn’t get enough credit for Garland and Gorsuch.

JohnfromMarshall on July 11, 2018 at 12:31 pm

    McConnell gets no credit for doing what anybody in his position should have done and would have done.

    Mochizuki Koga on July 12, 2018 at 2:10 am

      Agreed. Addison McConnell is a bigger waffler than Eggo and IHOP(or is it IHOB) combined. .

      Ken B on July 12, 2018 at 7:54 pm

    I have a feeling Chamber of Commerce Mitch is going to get full return on his investment come some important decisions and you won’t even remember what he was supposed to get credit for. Possibly you’ll be moaning about being betrayed but by then it won’t matter.

D—This is sort of off topic and relates solely to your meal. Instead of pan-fried cod, here’s another, more interesting I think, way to prepare such a white fish, though my recipe works slightly better with tilapia. The recipe’s called “poor man’s lobster,” but don’t be put off by the name or the recipe. I think it’s so good, that it’s my go-to recipe for a quick meal’s main course. To prepare, simple boil a pot of water, with the pot large enough to allow a colander to sink into the boiling water just enough to more than cover the contents of the colander. Add 1 cup sugar and a squeezed and sliced lemon or lime to the boiling water. Slice your cleaned piece (or pieces) of cod or tilapia into cubes, put in the colander, and then with pot holders, sink the colander into the boiling water (with sugar and lemon/lime). Just two things left: (1) don’t stir at all; and (2) watch carefully and be ready to pull the colander from the boiling water because the fish cooks very quickly, usually in less than 1 minute. It’s better to pull the colander early to check if done than to risk overcooking. And don’t be fooled into thinking that your fish will taste sugary or that this way of cooking is unhealthy. Surprisingly little of the sugar is actually absorbed into the fish. It simply alters the flavor of fish when combined with lemon or lime to simulate the taste of lobster; hence the name, “poor man’s lobster.” A lobster tail costs much more than cod or tilapia and isn’t Kosher in any event. You can check out different chefs preparing the fish on YouTube by searching for “poor man’s lobster,” but, trust me, my way is better using a colander because you can remove all of the fish at once this way to ensure that you don’t overcook your fish.
