On Saturday morning, the New York Publish continued to place the liberal media to disgrace with reporting they purposefully refuse to do (and as a substitute accuse everybody and their uncle of being Russian property) with a narrative pointing out the ties between Joe Biden’s Democratic Occasion and NBC White Home correspondent/debate moderator Kristen Welker.

And if that wasn’t sufficient, reporter Jonathan Levine took be aware of how Welker had tipped off then-Clinton marketing campaign hand Jennifer Palmieri to questions she’d ask within the spin room after a debate. As some would possibly recall, Palmieri was the identical Democratic flack Welker’s colleague Chuck Todd and his Democratic operative spouse hosted a celebration for.

Predictably, the liberal media circled the wagons round Welker after the story dropped despite the fact that, if Welker’s dad and mom had been Trump donors, the identical media hyenas would have been calling for Welker’s ouster (and never simply from the controversy, however her job at NBC as nicely).

Right here was what Levine discovered about her Democratic household and Welker’s personal celebration registration (click on “broaden”):

Welker comes from a longtime Democratic household — who’ve poured money into celebration coffers, and to Trump opponents, for years.

Her mom, Julie Welker, a outstanding actual property dealer in Philadelphia, and father, Harvey Welker, a consulting engineer, have donated tens of 1000’s of {dollars} to Democratic candidates and near $20,000 to Barack Obama alone.

There was additionally $3,300 for Joe Biden’s 2020 marketing campaign and $2,100 for Hillary Clinton’s doomed 2016 presidential effort towards Trump. One other $7,300 was contributed to the Democratic Nationwide Committee between 2004 and 2020.


Although Kristen Welker’s celebration registration is just not listed at the moment, she was a registered Democrat in Washington, DC, in 2012 and in Rhode Island in 2004.

As for the tip off, Welker was caught on a scorching mic (and flagged on the time by our associates on the Free Beacon) informing Palmieri on March 6, 2016 in a post-debate spin room that she would ask her in regards to the Flint, Michigan water disaster following the controversy between Clinton and Bernie Sanders within the aforementioned metropolis.

Now, the blowback. For committing the sin of journalism, the liberal activists that largely make up mentioned career couldn’t stand Levine’s article and savaged him as reprehensibly unfair.

With hyperlinks included, right here was how deranged and toxic CNN host Brian Stelter put it in his Sunday night newsletter (click on “broaden”):

Trump and the NY Publish goal the moderator

Really I suppose it was the opposite method round… First the NY Publish printed successful job about Kristen Welker after which Trump criticized her. The story claimed that Welker has “deep Democrat ties” however cited ridiculous examples like Welker’s attendance on the Obama White Home press celebration. A spokesperson for Welker reportedly identified that she additionally attended the Trump WH press celebration in 2017 — earlier than Trump did away with the custom — however The Publish didn’t embody that reality.

Members of the WH press corps rallied to Welker’s defense when the story hit, however Trumpworld used it to smear her… And on Saturday evening, Trump known as her “terrible” and “terribly unfair.” This requires a flashback to what Trump informed Welker when she turned the co-anchor of “Weekend Immediately” in January: “Congratulations in your present. They made a really clever determination.”

When the 4 debate moderators had been introduced, Welker was all the time the one which conservatives, Trump supporters, and neutral observers had motive to be most involved about. 

Not solely has she left a protracted on-air monitor report of getting been a liberal partisan for MSNBC and NBC, however her household conflicts of curiosity have made her choice one other embarrassment for the Debate Fee.

Welker will not be confused with Jim Acosta, April Ryan, or Stelter, however her report and partisan ties can’t be ignored, no matter whether or not it hurts individuals’s emotions.
