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).
Of course, Donald Trump visiting the African American History Museum in Washington D.C. is a problem for journalists. April Ryan on Tuesday wondered what was the point of the President’s visit, considering he thinks that “white America” built the country. ABC reporter Cecilia Vega also demanded to know if Trump will show forgiveness to illegals.
While President Trump visited the National African American Museum of History Tuesday morning, MSNBC took the opportunity to bash the president for his word choices as evidence that he was mentally ill. On top of that, MSNBC analysts stated that Trump had ran out of chances with the black community and admitted this visit wouldn’t change any opinions about him.
On Monday, our friend SooperMexican at The Right Scoop caught this embarrassing exchange on MSNBC as Katy Tur admitted to her guest that she was couldn’t recall President Barack Obama being caught on a hot mike in 2012 saying he’d have “more flexibility” to work with Russia after his reelection.
Monday, on MSNBC's Morning Joe, political analysts Mark Halperin and John Heilemann began a segment by hammering President Trump’s tweet on Friday criticizing the media again as "fake news" and an "enemy of the American people." Heilemann linked Trump’s comments to the possibility of inciting a terror attack similar to the 1995 Oklahoma City Bombing.
