Ever since James Comey was fired from his position as FBI Director by Donald Trump, the progressive left and their allies have been in an uproar. Several have voiced the opinion that Trump did this in order to end the FBI investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. One Yale history professor, however, put forth the claim that the President’s actions foreshadow a much more sinister pattern of events during Wednesday's edition of Morning Joe.

On Tuesday’s Anderson Cooper 360, CNN senior political commentator and former presidential adviser David Gergen warned that “we are in impeachment territory for the first time” in light of The New York Times report about the Jim Comey memo in which President Trump allegedly asked him to end the Mike Flynn investigation.

On Tuesday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of President Donald Trump firing FBI director James Comey, three CNN regular CNN panel members were befuddled and reacted with confusion after right-leaning historian Doug Wead pointed out that Comey's temporary replacement -- assistant director Andrew McCabe -- is himself a Democrat and therefore not someone who is likely to impede any investigation into the Trump administration.

When a seemingly inclusive Yale educator revealed her true colors online, the Washington Post ran the story. But most left-leaning media outlets were notably silent. After all, liberals who condemn “white trash” are pretty embarrassing to the progressive movement.

After wrongly and confidently predicting that Hillary Clinton had a 99% chance to beat Donald Trump in the presidential election, late-night MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell was back at it again with the brazen speculation Tuesday night. To open his show, O’Donnell went on a lengthy takedown of the President, comparing him to Richard Nixon and his Watergate scandal, even claiming that Trump had done “exactly” the same thing Nixon was impeached for.

For much of the last year, the liberal “legacy media” has been looking for “ominous” signs of Fox News falling from its dominant position in the cable-news landscape. Now AP media reporter David Bauder has written a story with that message: “With President Donald Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey the week's big story, MSNBC had one of its best ratings weeks in memory — perhaps an ominous sign for troubled Fox News Channel.” Fox won the week when all viewers were counted.

Wishfully anticipating the impeachment of Donald Trump, MSNBC has begun airing a promo ad for left-wing primetime host Chris Hayes set at Washington’s infamous Watergate hotel. The not-so-subtle reference implying President Trump is the new Richard Nixon in the wake of firing FBI Director James Comey.

Wednesday on The View, co-host Sunny Hostin couldn’t contain her excitement at the possibility that President Trump could face impeachment, over a new New York Times report that revealed former FBI Director James Comey made a written record of his meetings with Donald Trump before he was fired. The “Comey memo” could confirm that Trump asked the FBI Director to "let go" of the investigation, which may be an obstruction of justice.

Hollywood director and outspoken progressive Joss Whedon is using his film talents to keep the nation’s largest abortion provider in business, ironically calling anyone who would shut it down “inhuman.”

During a panel discussion on Wednesday’s NBC Today about the reported James Comey memo accusing President Trump of asking to the former FBI Director to “let go” of the investigation into Michael Flynn, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd made clear what the media agenda would be for the next several months: “I think we know what the summer is gonna be, it’s gonna be the summer of Comey.”

“Joe, is it fair to say with your legal background and the guests we have that we are looking at potential of obstruction of justice here?” Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski breathlessly asked her fellow co-host/fiancé, Joe Scarborough during their Wednesday show. “Well, you know Mika,” Scarborough replied, “As I always said on the campaign trail when people asked me if I was a lawyer I said, 'yes, I am, but not a good one.' So, let's go to Jonathan Turley who was a good one!" Apparently, even on MSNBC the truth does emerge occasionally!

CNN political analyst David Gregory took after Fox News on Wednesday’s New Day, lecturing them to stop saying what CNN and others are doing is “activism over journalism.” This is the same David Gregory who brought his high-capacity magazine clip to the Meet the Press set. And it’s the same David Gregory that wouldn’t let any Republican bring up rape charges against Bill Clinton when he was an MSNBC host. Gregory didn’t want to talk about that for ten seconds.

But now, Gregory is insisting “It is a time of reckoning for Republicans, to try and get back on track here and get to the bottom of what the president did.”

The frenzied liberal journalists at ABC, CBS and NBC on Wednesday smelled blood in the water. They threw around the “I-word,” “impeachment” and “impeachable offenses” for Donald Trump. Rather than waiting for actual memos to appear or for evidence unrelated to anonymous sourcing, former Bill Clinton operative and Good Morning America co-host George Stephanopoulos excitedly wondered, “The big question, did President Trump try to block the FBI's Russia investigation [and] commit an impeachable offense?”

Appearing as a guest on Monday's CNN Tonight to discuss revelations that President Donald Trump shared classified intelligence with Russian officials in a recent meeting, CNN host Fareed Zakaria argued that "incompetence" by Trump would be a preferable explanation for the development rather than the more "dark" alternative of it being intentional. Sighing, host Don Lemon worried: "I'm a glass half full guy, but, I mean, it's, for you to say that the most benign or the best explanation is incompetency is -- we're at a very sad place right now."

Jennifer Harper of The Washington Times reported on a new Pew Research Center poll on Monday that showed a widening gap in perceptions of the media between Republicans and Democrats. Pew asked whether the media's criticism of political leaders primarily keeps them from doing things they shouldn’t – or keeps them from doing their job.

Eighty-nine percent of Democrats picked “keeps them from doing things they shouldn’t.” Only 42 percent of Republicans agreed. This 47-point gap is a record for the Pew poll.
