MSNBC’s The Last Word, was back on Wednesday night to their usual anti-Trump rhetoric, amidst Trump’s recent ABC interview which had sent the entire liberal media in a frenzy. To begin, O’Donnell showed a clip from the interview in which President Trump stated: “I’ve seen a lot of things over my life. I don’t think in my whole life I’ve ever called the FBI, in my whole life. You don’t call the FBI.”
Tuesday night on MSNBC’s The Last Word, host, Lawrence O’Donnell made absurd claims about President Trump, going as far as to accuse him of treason. To begin, O’Donnell quoted the President’s comments earlier that day about the death of Kim Jong-un’s brother: “I saw the information about the CIA with respect to his brother or half-brother and I would tell him that would not happen under my auspices. That’s for sure.”
Ever fervent in their Trump impeachment agenda, the liberal media decided to attack Fox News on MSNBC’s The Last Word, Monday night. Host, Lawrence O’Donnell, set the stage for Jill Wine-banks, a former Watergate prosecutor, asking: “Jill Wine-Banks, this must have been odd for you to watch having worked on the Watergate case where in fact, Republicans did cooperate in the House Judiciary Committee a total of seven Republicans ultimately voted for at least one article of impeachment against President Nixon.”
Friday night, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes made some unusually ridiculous statements surrounding the ongoing push by the liberal media to indict President Trump. Hayes began by showing a clip of Fox News host Sean Hannity criticizing recent comments from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claiming she wanted to see Trump “in prison.”
Thursday night’s episode of The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell did little to venerate the 75th anniversary of D-Day, instead focusing on the liberal media’s Public enemy number one Donald Trump. O’Donnell began his almost six-minute rant by stating: “Donald Trump’s vocabulary is and always has been the size of his mind. Which is to say very, very small.” Good one O’Donnell, no one saw that coming.
Wednesday night on The Rachel Maddow show, host Rachel Maddow continued her negative onslaught of criticism towards President Trump on his overseas visits. She began by negatively highlighting the events that took place in the meeting of President Trump and the Irish Prime Minister stating:
Despite the fact that President Trump’s state visit to the U.K. has gone generally well, the liberal media would have you think otherwise. On The Rachel Maddow Show Tuesday night, the liberal host made sure to highlight every negative she could think of in regards to the visit, stating in summation: “As I say, the President’s overseas trip has been clunky.”
According to MSNBC, in 2019 America, democracy has failed. The President of the United States no longer represents the people that voted for him…or maybe he just doesn’t represent MSNBC? At one point on Monday night, the disgraced ex-Nightly News host wondered, “Will he ever show a sense of stewardship? Will he ever represent us on an overseas trip?”
Pro-life legislation being passed in states across the country has caused much media panicking. In Missouri, where currently one Planned Parenthood abortion clinic remains, all out hysteria of a “dystopian and radical” future was fed by MSNBC host, Rachel Maddow Friday night. The far-left host seemed to compare preserving abortion access to freeing slaves via the Underground Railroad.
Thursday night, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow fueled the partisan fire by accusing the conservative media of delivering “exculpatory lies.” She began by quoting an NBC interview with a constituent of Michigan Congressman and frequent Trump critic Justin Amash: “One Republican who supported Amash and the President, said she was upset about Amash’s position but wanted to hear his reasoning.” The liberal host continued to quote the voter: “I have mainly listened to conservative news. I hadn’t heard anything negative about that report and President Trump has been exonerated.”
Wednesday night on MSNBC’s The Last Word, host Lawrence O’Donnell was joined by former GOP Rep. Tom Coleman (MO) to discuss the media’s favorite pet project: impeachment. O’Donnell eagerly introduced Coleman’s unique approach to impeachment: “You believe that the Mueller Report shows that the Trump presidency is an illegitimate presidency, which also means that the vice presidency of Mike Pence is illegitimate in your reading of it…”
In an ironic display of self-righteousness, MSNBC’s All In host Chris Hayes and Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell discussed Tuesday night just how they avoid partiality in their reporting. Opening with an insult to President Trump, Hayes stated; “The central issue is the depth-less nihilism of the President whose sheer shamelessness means he will say anything at any time, about any opponent no matter how cartoonishly disingenuous it is.”
MSNBC’s The Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell ganged up with Vox editor Ezra Klein Thursday night to discuss recent developments in the on-going showdown between President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. O’Donnell opened the topic by sardonically stating; “One of the developments today was the President taking time to publicly proclaim he’s not the crazy one.” Taking the ever favored side of Crazy Nancy, O’Donnell and Klein laughed over Trump’s defending himself with Klein quipping, “so things are going great in American democracy I guess.”
Wednesday night on MSNBC’s All In, host Chris Hayes blasted the President, claiming Trump's promotion of “bigoted stereotypes” have caused the “conditions for cruelty” leading to deaths among illegal immigrants in U.S. custody at the southern border.
