Appearing as a guest on Thursday's The Last Word on MSNBC, Daily Beast foreign editor and MSNBC political commentator Christopher Dickey aimed snide name-calling at White House advisor Steve Bannon. After calling him a "snob," the liberal commentator also remarked that he looks like a "slob" and a "dirty old man," as he went along with host Lawrence O'Donnell's suggestion that the Donald Trump advisor looks homeless. O'Donnell described Bannon as looking like he "slept in the subway last night" as he wondered how people in France view the Donald Trump advisor: "So what do they think when they see the guy who looks like he slept in the subway last night and he's the one who's talking to the President?"

On Tuesday morning's MSNBC Live, Louise Mensch, though she claims to be a conservative, put forth what I suspect will be the left's core economic argument if the economy improves under Donald Trump. That argument: The economy is "fantastic" already, and Trump will have had nothing to do with whatever economic improvements over what is already "fantastic" we might see.

MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews compared White House chief strategist Steve Bannon on Thursday to Star Wars villain Darth Vader, even though “he’s a good speaker” albeit “a little strong but, you know, that’s part of the deal he’s got.”

In a promo she does for the MSNBC channel on SiriusXM, Rachel Maddow claims she delivers the news "without fear or favor" -- but she sure provides useful cover to guests if they share her liberal politics. Such was the case Tuesday night when one of Maddow's guests was former CIA analyst Edward Price, who just quit the agency in a highly public way, accompanied by an op-ed in the Washington Post that laid out the alleged rationale for his departure.

Thursday on Morning Joe, the discussion became heated very early. During a conversation about a clip of Stephen Miller speaking on Fox News, the topic of conservatives on college campuses arose because host Joe Scarborough tried making a connection between how Miller was likely treated versus who Miller is today.

Chief legal correspondent Ari Melber spoke in a clip played in the beginning of the segment concerning Miller’s Fox News appearance: “Steven Miller coming out last night and saying on a news program that the new ban will be just like the old ban . . . I can tell you he just served up the ACLU's opening line in any argument against the new travel ban in court. They will say, well, judge, you blocked the old ban for these reasons and the government has already conceded through Mr. Miller who is in charge of this process the new ban is basically the same so it should be blocked too”

Throughout Wednesday’s Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews expressed no concerns or reservations about the “grassroots resistance” and “anger from progressives” on display at congressional and Senate Republican town halls. All the while, he sang a different tune seven and eight years ago when the Tea Party was born, denouncing them as racists and sexists who shouldn’t be given the light of day.

Wednesday on Morning Joe, the discussion centered around immigration policies and deportation. Host Joe Scarborough began the segment righteously stating why illegal immigration is wrong and that the media has a “blind spot” in seeing where most Americans stand on the issue. Scarborough made this point first to political analyst Mark Halperin:“So Mark, you have said this is the biggest disconnect between red state America and blue state America. I agree. My only caveat to that is I think there are a lot of people in blue state America that also think, wait, they are here illegally? What is wrong with the government deporting them? I know that is not popular in this area code.”

Tuesday, on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, co-host Willie Geist interviewed the very liberal MTV News senior political correspondent, Anna Marie Cox. Geist asked, “ You know we saw the Women's March, we’ve seen a lot of activity in the streets over the last month. What is the practical impact of that on the Trump presidency?”

Cox answered by first taking aim at recent statements made about paid protestors:
“This is where we get into the problem about not agreeing on reality, right? If you have a group of people that really truly seem to believe that these are paid protesters that are out there... I haven’t gotten my check yet . . . If you believe . . .  that this is paid protest and somehow outside agitation, which is another phrase reminiscent of the Nixon era, then it doesn’t have an effect at all. Right? Except, just to indicate how cut off from reality the Trump White House is.”

During the 6 am hour on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Wednesday, co-host Mika Brzezinski made an alarming admission about what she thinks the media’s role is. During a panel discussion on President Trump’s revised immigration order, Brzezinski complained that Trump was undermining the media and taking their “job” of “controlling exactly what people think.”

Appearing as a guest on Tuesday’s Hardball, MSNBC political analyst and USA Today senior political reporter Heidi Przybyla brazenly argued that anti-Semitism is becoming “mainstream” on the right after having been only a “fringe, alt-right, white nationalist movement.”

At the top of her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Tuesday, anchor Andrea Mitchell enthusiastically touted liberal protesters showing up to congressional town hall meetings: “Republican Congress members getting an earful back home as they prepare to rollout their plan to repeal ObamaCare.” However, back in 2010, Mitchell was frightened by such “angry” displays by Tea Party demonstrators attending public meetings with Democratic lawmakers.

After President Donald Trump spent a long weekend at Mar-a-lago, Sean Spicer held his first White House press briefing of the week on Tuesday. There, he faced a slew of questioning about a string of nationwide anti-Semitic crimes, including the touting of the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
