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 in a quote that could be in the running for the next issue of Notable Quotables.

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.

Disgraced journalist Brian Williams on Monday offered up a glowing documentary on Barack Obama that censored the President’s numerous scandals and controversies. Talking to historian Michael Beschloss, Williams flatly declared, “There has been no personal scandal. This has been a president whose behavior has been important to him.” The historian agreed, responding, “There was no personal scandal that attached to him and when you think about the presidency in recent decades, that's an achievement.”

On Monday afternoon, Hallie Jackson attempted to force Congresswoman Barbara Lee into asserting that Donald Trump’s presidency would be illegitimate come inauguration day. Jackson seemed to think if she brought up Congressman John Lewis’s assertions and other opinions of Lee’s colleagues, that her comments would follow suit. To Jackson’s disappointment, the Congresswoman would not say that Trump’s Presidency would be, or should be, considered illegitimate on January 20th.

Millions of Americans will celebrate Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday, but the vast majority of journalists probably won’t be among them — and it’s not their scrupulous “objectivity,” or a unique aversion to Trump’s personal style, that keeps them from joining the party. Reviewing the media’s inauguration coverage since 1989 finds that incoming Republican presidents receive little of the worshipful coverage that’s accompanied the ascension of Democratic presidents. Instead, journalists measure new presidents using their standard liberal yardstick.

President-elect Donald Trump was four days out from taking the oath of office and liberals were already scheming for his impeachment on MSNBC. During Monday’s Hardball, host Chris Matthews peddled in conspiracy theories of Russian “collusion” with the Trump campaign while teeing up Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters to attack the president-elect. “Does that make Trump subject to impeachment? What do you mean by not legitimate,” Matthews demanded to know.

With the ingurgitation of President-elect Donald Trump just a few short days away, Brian Williams put together a program looking back at The Obama Years slated for late Monday night. Williams appeared on Chris Matthews’ Hardball to promote it, and the two of them took the time to gush about President Barack Obama’s time in office. “What do you think he thinks about how he fits the job, how comfortable he is, or not, with being president in this early part of the 21st century,” wondered Matthews.

Appearing as a guest on Sunday's PoliticsNation on MSNBC, liberal talk radio host Joe Madison attacked President-elect Donald Trump as someone who "couldn't shine John Lewis's shoes" during a discussion of Trump's Twitter response to the Democratic congressman's view that his presidency would not be "legitimate." The long-time recurring guest, who has a history of making snide attacks against conservatives, also declared that "we need to put this man in his place."

On Monday afternoon, reporters stationed inside Trump Tower begged Martin Luther King III to attack President-elect Trump over tweets concerning Democratic Congressman John Lewis (Ga.) following a meeting on the day honoring King’s father, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Appearing as a guest on Saturday's AM Joy, allegedly conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin sounded like just one more liberal analyst on top of the other four liberals already on the panel as she could only find negative things to say about Republican efforts to repeal ObamaCare, and even fretted over the move to defund Planned Parenthood.

On Thursday morning, Mika Brzezinski was all too happy to be having Senator Bernie Sanders on Morning Joe. Not once, but twice during the 7 a.m. ET hour segment, she explained to Joe Scarborough that he had better not interrupt her or cut into the blocked off time that was set aside for Senator Sanders because of how excited she was to have him on the show. Not only that, but she also told her co-host that she was inviting herself to join the Senator’s nationwide tour.
