Has anybody else noticed that the ancillary players of the Democratic Party are disappearing at an alarming rate? For nearly two years, the American public was part and parcel to an intense hysteria generated by the comings and goings of random leftist dupes tilting at windmills while occupying an inordinate amount of media airtime.
Nasty women, hats resembling intimate body parts, porn stars and their viscerally creepy attornies, and completely obscure witnesses once paraded in front of cameras seem to have vanished. Aren’t their plaintive – albeit questionable – testimonies important anymore?
The silence is deafening: There are no wails from actresses dressed in Handmaiden Tales garb, Gloria Allred must be off Botox-ing, and the kids from Marjory Stoneman Douglass High School have stopped marching.
Has the legacy media lost interest in the anguish and drama-fatiguing pawns in their game of chess? Or have the Democrats silenced them after losing too many games?
Think about it.
There are almost more shills evaporating than we can count – it’s as if they were somehow a part of Hillary Clinton’s past.
But here are a few to reminisce about with fondness and concern, lest they be eternally forgotten.
Once the Senate confirmation hearings concluded and Judge Brett Kavanaugh ascended to the United States Supreme Court, Blasey-Ford, the star witness against the beleaguered justice, lasted only a scant few days as the star of CNN, MSNBC, The Washington Post, and The New York Times.
She presented a tragic figure to America — a woman who shuddered and cried on our electronic screens as she attempted to recall half-forgotten crimes she’s sure were committed 30 plus years prior by Kavanaugh.
Her testimony was riddled with inaccuracies, poor recall of dates, people, and events, yet embraced by the left as proof positive that Kavanaugh was a sexual predator.
But the judge survived the hearing, even if he was deeply wounded by a rabid press and his accuser’s willingness to look fraudulent and foolish on national television.
After receiving over $600,000 in donations from a GoFundMe account, Blasey-Ford and family faded into oblivion.
Stormy Daniels and her Creepy Porn Lawyer
The over-priced, excessively endowed adult star Stormy Daniels and her slick attorney Michael Avenatti was once the most favored guests on Anderson Cooper 360. And why wouldn’t they be? A slick lawyer railing for the civil liberties of his porn star client as they battled the president of the United States for their ability to break a confidentiality agreement.
Avenatti, the once rising star, appeared to be at ground zero of merging Trump scandals – the Stormy Daniels lawsuit, Michael Cohen’s Russian relationship, and Robert Mueller’s witch hunt. It smelled a bit funny, but the Democrats greedily ate up the man’s claims and used them to great irritation against conservatives.
Oh, the amount of time the alt left press spent on frivolous sound bites. Cooper’s CNN program hosted Avenatti – although it was only a rehash of the same old song – a whopping 20 times in half as many weeks, while other cable news tallied up 147 visits in 10 weeks. His stylish suits and loafers, lotion slathering grooming habits, and that effervescent confidence were covered by Vanity Fair and devoured by middle-aged white, straight, liberal females and a few of Anderson Cooper’s close friends.
It was then that Avenatti began to believe his press – and his relevance in politics – and boldly declared he was considering a run for the presidency against his arch nemesis, Donald J. Trump.
The flashy and spectacular flame-out began in earnest when Daniels, who lost her second lawsuit against the leader of the free world and was ordered to pay court costs to the orange man, fired the slimy barrister for a laundry list of mismanagement.
“He knew that I was unhappy and looking for new counsel.”
Avenatti bit back with an “uh-uh, I quit,” style retort.
Daniels then called Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen “dumber than herpes,” and now we haven’t seen much springtime Stormy weather on cable news, thank the good Lord.
Unfortunately for the fashionable Avenatti, he has found himself boiling like an unsuspecting frog in a pot as he faces charges for a myriad of crimes, prompting the barrister to noodle on how to look good in penal institution orange.
So Many Expendables … So Little Time
America has been fed a steady, alt-fact laden, emotional spiking diet by legacy media. Remember Trump’s former Apprentice employee, Omarosa, joining the “racist” chanters soon after her surprise departure from the Trump administration? Or the not great face of the March For Lives movement, anti-gun activist and Marjory Stoneman Douglass High School student, David Hogg, who irritated nearly every adult in the hemisphere?
Americans were instructed to believe them. Embrace their courage. Eschew the facts, the letter of American law and justice, and join in the alternate universe of their rapidly deteriorating dystopic society.
Let’s face it – the Democrats and their complicit, seemingly corrupt, media coverage used the desires of those obsessed with elongating that age-old requisite 15-minutes of fame as their own personal lackeys. With abject failure on all accounts, the Dreamers, kids in cages on the border, alleged assaulted women were soon forgotten. In their place, there was the highly anticipated Mueller Report that Americans were again told they must believe.
Americans did believe it. Leftist cable news outlets lost millions of viewers – and Mueller hasn’t been seen since. Like so many of the other patsies for the left, the man is no longer of use.
