MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was a living, breathing edition of Notable Quotables on Inauguration Day, offering takes ranging from joking about Mussolini and former President George W. Bush hugging Supreme Court justices to this now-infamous quip that President Trump’s speech was “Hitlerian.”

On MSNBC following President Donald Trump’s Inaugural Address, hosts and pundits expressed grave concern at a speech that was “dark” and “militant” with anti-Semitic overtones with the use of the phrase “America First.” Co-host Rachel Maddow seemed emotional, speaking softly about how “it was militant and it was dark, the crime, the gangs, the drugs, this American carnage, disrepair, decay” and a speech Barack Obama couldn’t have given.

Roughly five minutes into MSNBC’s Inauguration coverage, host Brian Williams switched gears from discussing Donald Trump becoming President to mythologizing President Obama for having “elevated the office...improved by touching the office and shown great respect for the office he's the custodian of.”

Say what you want about MSNBC's Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough, but he offered advice for liberal journalists in the Trump era on Friday seeing as how “[t]he media is still trying to figure out how to handle him” with cases like Martin Luther King III having an anti-Trump “speech shouted to him instead of a question.”

Less than a day after CNN wondered what would happen if President-elect Trump were assassinated, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews tried to instill fear in viewers late Thursday, floating the idea that Trump might need to use the nuclear launch codes on Inauguration Day.

MSNBC journalists on Thursday whined about the treatment they were getting from Americans visiting Washington D.C. for Donald Trump’s inauguration. Cal Perry reported live from the inaugural concert. He complained, “...There is a pervasive, sort of, heckling that goes on towards the media that we've seen today, consistently not just from the crowds but also the volunteers.”

MRC Vice President of Business and Culture Dan Gainor denounced NBC’s attempt to downplay President-elect Donald Trump’s role in bringing new jobs to the U.S. On Twitter, Trump credited himself for new job creation on Jan. 17. The next day, NBC’s Today ran a “fact check” on Trump’s claim with MSNBC’s Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber, who said Trump had a “very small or non-existent” impact.

On Tuesday, the anchors of Morning Joe got into a heated discussion concerning the flaws of the media. Both Scarborough and Brzezinski called out the media for not presenting consumers with the facts alone, constantly asking leading questions, and failing to resist weaving their own opinions into discourse.

As the conversation carried on, Brzezinski became frustrated that most of the media are only able to understand and defend the actions of a Democrat like John Lewis, but not a Republican.

When Donald Trump announced his presidential campaign on June 16, 2015, the savants in the news media weren’t just skeptical — they were openly disdainful of the man who will be sworn in as America’s 45th President at noon tomorrow. Reporters sniffed that Trump’s campaign was a “carnival show” which threatened to turn the GOP primary race into “a joke.” CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin called Trump a “fool,” NBC’s Chuck Todd blasted him as “a political streaker,” and pundit after pundit insisted the real estate mogul had no chance of winning.

Yes, it’s as bad as you think it was. On Wednesday, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews allowed himself to have his knees quake one last time, paying tribute to President Obama, who he deemed “a fine man” offering unparalleled levels of “sentiment,” “temperament,” and “optimism.” “To say that no person can make a difference, I give you the fine case of that fine man, Barack Obama,” Matthews swooned at the end.

On Tuesday, disgraced MSNBC journalist Brian Williams had a very poor outlook for the week of the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump. “There is a kind of a dark mood surrounding this week for a lot of people,” he whined on The 11th Hour, “The approval rating of Donald Trump is at 40 percent, it's the lowest of recording polling.” Williams was venting to Princeton University Professor Eddie Glaude, who had his own scheme for inauguration day.

Reverend Al Sharpton is back to making outlandish statements, this time, praising President Obama for his “accomplishments” while in office, even going so far as thanking God we “lived in the age of Obama.”  

Sharpton used his airtime on MSNBC’s “Politics Nation” to gush about the Messiah of the liberal left, just days away before he leaves the White House for good.
