Cuomo Whacks Trump

July 20, 2015

Chris: The Donald’s “disposition, dyspepsia, and demagoguery.” If one watches New Day, s/he can tell immediately that ND co-host Chris Cuomo is no fan of the Celebrity Apprentice star and real estate magnate. In fact, the Cuomo scion evinces utter disdain for the leading GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Introducing a segment re surging Democratic insurgent Prez aspirant Bernie Sanders this morning, Chris facetiously queries, “Is Bernie Sanders the Democrat’s Donald Trump?” Taking a gratuitous shot at The Donald, he snarked, “No, not in disposition, dyspepsia, and demagoguery: But is he tapping into the passion of his party?”

Will Trump hit back at Mario’s boy? Tune in. It should be fun!

Alluring Aly’s Anniversary

July 15, 2015

Comely Camerota: “Can’t believe it’s already my one year #CNNannniversary[:] it’s been a terrific first year.” And, it has been–with¬†New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota doing what she does best, resurrecting moribund cable news morning programs (a la her second and third stint at Fox & Friends Weekend). Aly to the rescue: Aly’s cool and Aly’s hot!

When New Day replaced American Morning (soon after Kiran Chetry‘s tearful namaskaar), CNN put beefcake Cuomo scion Chris on to co-anchor the show with tyro Kate Bolduan and sweet third wheel news reader Michaela Pereira. It never quite worked with Chris leading the pack as the alpha male with puppy Kate yapping for his affection and second wife Michaela seeming to just want Big Love or peace, joy, and happiness–not that there is anything necessarily wrong with that. When Kate got preggers, the ND viewer could sense that Kate’s tearful goodbye may have been forever (with Zucker itching for a winner in the morn).

Subsequently, Aly began filling in for Kate. Even the casual viewer could sense a whole new dynamic–where the boy was not the boss anymore: The girl was even if she did not necessarily let him know it. Like his Pop or his brother, Chris plays partisan style: And, Aly plays it fair. Poor Michaela seems to opine from the peanut gallery.

With Aly at the helm, it is indeed a New Day at CNN. A good day!

Twilight Zone: Poor Bob Massi

July 10, 2015

“12 p.m.”: Seriously? Yes, seize the day, or Carpe Diem: But, do it right! Yesterday, Fox & Friends promoted their fave Las Vegas lawyer, Bob Massi, and his eponymous show Bob Massi is the Property Man. As the segment ended with the eminently likable lawyer that reminds one of the affable Gerry Spence with his white mane and his silver tongue, the graphics displayed indicated that Massi’s show would be aired on “Saturdays at 12PM ET.”* No, they are not: they are on at 12 noon. If they were at 12PM ET, they would actually be at 12 midnight!

Readers, please forgive the author for expressing this personal peeve. But, it is very irritating to him when such clear terms as p.m. (post meridiem) are simply ignored as if they had no meaning. 12 noon or 12 midnight are proper and should be embraced. “12 a.m.” and 12 p.m.” are almost rendered meaningless because they both are 12 midnight: 12 hours before the middle of the day and 12 hours after the middle of the day.

Sorry, Bob, for FNC’s confusion! I assume you are on at 12 noon ET tomorrow. Break a leg–in a good way! *Fox & Friends – 07/09/15 (@8:28 a.m. ET).

Stacey Dash: “As Long as I’m Satisfied”

July 6, 2015

“I’d love to be able to spend time with myself.” Outnumbered co-hosts Stacey Dash, Jedediah Bila, Julie Roginsky, Sandra Smith, and Tucker Carlson spilled the beans on their proclivity for needing alone time during a segment Friday on just that–“spending more time alone is key to a happy marriage, experts say.” Former Playboy pinup Stacey (NSFW) was adamant: Smiling sexily, Stacey declared, “As long as I’m satisfied, I’d love to spend time with myself.”

In reaction, a blushing Jedidiah fanned herself and exclaimed, “Whoo! Hoo!” Meanwhile, an embarrassed Tucker beamed broadly, Sandra reddened, and Julie smilingly smirked. Yep, the PILF MILF was happy to steam things up yet again.

Interjecting, one of the off-cam ladies remarked, “Tucker’s red!” And, so were a few viewers. Stacey Dash: “As long as I’m satisfied: I’d love to spend time with myself.” [Divinylis plays ever so softly in the background.]

[For the record, Jedidiah Bila said, “I’m not clingy at all–like I have my own space; I have my own life….But, I do like a guy who…wants to spend time with me….a man who put(s) me at the top of the list.” Sandra opined, “Nobody is meant to spend all day with anybody.” When Tucker advocated being with his beloved as oft as he could, Julie responded, “You’re talking to the wrong person: I love being alone so much that I never bothered to get married!”]
