Seth Meyers, Ilhan Omar’s Publicist

By L. Brent Bozell III

In the Trump era, the media not only made the late John McCain a sainted figure. They made his entire family saints. Attacking them was like an attack on the best that humanity has to offer. When reports emerged that then-White House aide Kelly Sadler said in the senator’s last weeks that his opposition to CIA director nominee Gina Haspel was no longer relevant since he was “dying anyway,” there was about a week of teeth gnashing and garment rending for political blasphemy. Sadler was tarred, feathered and eventually dismissed.

But this secular sainthood can quickly be rescinded. Meghan McCain says conservative things on television — especially calling out the left for anti-Semitism, saying the Democrats may be echoing Britain’s Labour Party soon — and now she’s getting thrown under the bus.

On NBC’s “Late Night” on May 7, Seth Meyers interviewed this star of ABC’s “The View” and tried to shame her televised remarks on radical Rep. Ilhan Omar. Criticizing Omar was “unfair” and even endangered her safety.

"I do think it's fairly dangerous, and you brought it up after Congresswoman Omar also had some death threats against her," Meyers lectured. "She's obviously now stated that she needs to be more careful with her language. Don't you think other people who talk about her need to be a little more thoughtful as well? Or do you stand by those comments of tying her to this — her rhetoric — to this synagogue shooting?"

Meyers is referring to an April 28 panel discussion on ABC's "This Week" where several panelists insisted President Trump's rhetoric on immigration could be associated with the synagogue shooting near San Diego. McCain countered that we should pay attention to extremism on "both sides" of the aisle and recalled Omar's ugliest tweets about Jewish money and how Jews "hypnotized" the world. It's apparently not "dangerous" to the president when you try to tie him to a synagogue shooting.

When McCain refused to retract anything she said, Meyers said he was trying to find "common ground." That's laughable. He was shaming. And he repeated himself. "I'm just someone who cares about the fact that there's someone out there who is in a minority, who has had death threats against her, and I think that we should all use the same language," he said. "You're asking her to be careful about her language, and I would ask everyone to be careful about theirs."

Does Meyers really think he and his fellow late-night lecturers are careful about their language? Stephen Colbert calling Trump Russian President Vladimir Putin's "c—k holster"? Samantha Bee calling the president's daughter a "feckless c—t"? Is that "careful"?

When the president gave a prime-time address talking about people like Kate Steinle who were killed by illegal aliens, Meyers tweeted a joke: "Is this Oval Office: SVU?" Don't forget Meyers let a lesbian staff writer describe Catholics on national television as guilty of "hosting a 2,000-year-long pedophile convention." How can he preach what he will not practice?

McCain insisted Omar's getting a lot of free passes, and Meyers brazenly supported that notion. "It's an interesting thing when we have two Muslim women for the first time" in Congress, he said. "They do have a different perspective on things. ... we have to listen to other people's perspective." Does that sound like something Seth Meyers practices nightly on television? He's beloved by the left for his vicious monologues ... not for dialogue.

McCain asked the perfect (rhetorical) question: "Are you her publicist?" He is. But Omar has many others.

  1. This is America. She should not have been seated in congress until she agreed to be seated by U.S.A. standards for ALL congressmen and by placing her hand on the Bible. American culture and values should be follows by anybody who wants to serve in the American congress.

    1. I totally agree 1,000%, Amos. I have no idea why they didn’t insist she place her hand on the bible. It was so not the American way.

    2. This is exactly what I’ve said 100 times. How did they get elected not knowing our history and the US Constitution?

    3. On the bible! Kieth Ellison wasn’t sworn in with hand on the bible, it was a quran, so was Tliab. America is getting so lax in respect pretty soon you can be sworn into congress with your hand on Vanity air.

  2. Hey Seth!! I’d like to invite you to come to my Island in the South Pacific and join in on a “Shark Feeding Tour”!! The sharks will love to see you!!

  3. Boo Hoo Hoo !! It appears that these whiney little liberals can dish it out but can’t seem to take it when it given back.

DEAL WITH IT.

  6. Another irrelevant celebrity trying to stay on the top of ratings and being noticed. He can defend any and all if he wants to. It doesn’t t mean it is important to the rest of us. Just ignore him and his rantings. In the scheme of life where out of control illegal immigration is rtising, opioid addiction is rising corrupt politicians in Washington a rising China and Russia threatening us its seems too small to mind him and his ilk.

    Remember SEMPRE AVANTI

  8. Ilhan Omar is a threat to national security. She’s getting death threats? I am sorry about that but that seems to be the norm for anyone in the public sector now. Also, I am sure that nothing Ms. McCain or anyone else said inspired violence against Ms. Omar more effectively than Ms. Omar herself. Everything that comes out of her mouth is arrogant, ignorant, anti-freedom, anti-Christian, anti-Semitic and anti-American. She does a fine job of painting a target on herself, no help necessary. She should be deported to Somalia, her citizenship rescinded and let her get a job in Somalia’s government. She’d most likely find herself confined to her house unless a male relative is available to escort her anywhere.
