The cast of Morning Joe set their freakout level to def-con red in the wake of Donald Trump’s not-so-secretive dinner meeting with Vladimir Putin. “I’m not trying to make this look sinister,” a panicked Mika Brzezinski exclaimed frantically, “I'm not sure who is. We're just wondering what happened there.” An indignant Joe Scarborough deceivingly declared, “I don’t know what to say,” before going on to, disappointingly, say quite a bit on the matter. However, Mark Halperin arrived to steal the show in the end by stating, “If President Obama had done this exact thing and had not disclosed, there would be tons of questions about it.”


On Monday’s Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews and New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters decided to whitewash history and deceive viewers, painting all Republicans as unmistakably belonging to “the Putin party” dead-set on “putting their interests ahead of the country’s” (which means not joining Democrats in seeking to remove Trump from office).


On Sunday's MSNBC special, Trump at 6 Months, a panel stacked with liberals was assembled to discuss the conflict between President Donald Trump and the media. Given the makeup of the panel, it was no surprise that the group concluded that distrust of the media was the fault of right-wingers attacking them for decades, and that the media should continue what they already are doing, rather than make reforms to regain credibility. 


Did you know that praying for someone you might disagree with politically is heresy, or that Christianity is just another special interest group? Well now you do, all thanks to the guests on the Saturday segment of AM Joy.


On Sunday's PoliticsNation on MSNBC, during the show's regular "Gotcha" segment, host Al Sharpton was imagining racist dog whistles as he complained about "unmitigated, racially-tinged cruelty" from Congressman Steve King, and suggested that those who think like the Iowa Republican are "evil."

 


Friday, July 14 was the 228th anniversary of the storming of the Bastille prison in France in 1789. Bastille Day is a national holiday in France. NBC News noted the anniversary in a tweet. Longtime network correspondent Andrea Mitchell provided the comic relief in a tweeted Saturday evening reply, claiming that Friday marked "the 100th anniversary of US entering WWII."


On Friday's MSNBC Live, host Craig Melvin denied that the dominant news media have a liberal bias after Republican Congressman Dave Brat started hitting him with reports that over 96 percent of journalists who made political donations chose Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. A bit later, Melvin denied biased reporting as he declared, "Even if that bias did exist -- which, I mean, Dave, it doesn't -- even if it did --" Brat zinged him: "If it exists? Now, you got to come clean with me on that one."


You can’t disagree with the left anymore without some sort of ulterior motive ascribed to you. After all, if you were a good person, you would think like them.

 


Appearing as a guest on Thursday's All In with Chris Hayes, MSNBC's Joy Reid was displaying a severe case of projection as the far-left AM Joy host claimed that the Republican party is "built on" "resentment," "victimhood," and a "persecution complex" -- all of which would be more aptly applied to her own liberal ideology.


If you’re a regular NewsBusters reader and not chuckling after reading the above headline, kudos to you. Wednesday night on MSNBC’s The Last Word, former CIA official and MSNBC analyst Ned Price expressed hope that more Republicans and “principled conservatives” follow supposed compatriot Joe Scarborough in rejecting Trump by leaving the party.


Appearing as a panel member on Wednesday's The 11th Hour on MSNBC, presidential historian and former Newsweek editor-in-chief Jon Meacham took a whack at Donald Trump supporters as he asserted that Republicans have "Stockholm Syndrome" and have "sold their souls" in supporting Trump's election as president. A bit earlier, fellow panel member and liberal columnist Connie Schultz suggested that the political debate over replacing Obamacare is causing "anxiety" in people that requires treatment from doctors.


On Tuesday on MSNBC, as he was being interviewed by members of the press, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham's audio suddenly and completely went away. After discussing a reported meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian "lawyer" named Natalia Veselnitskaya, Graham said: "I’m sure they (Trump officials) met with a lot of people during the campaign. I’m sure the Clinton campaign met with —" ... well, we don't know what he said after that. That's because the network's Kasie Hunt, clearly without warning the cameraperson involved, decided that she didn't want to hear about Mrs. Clinton, and that she instead needed to run over and speak with Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.
