Latest from Kristine Marsh

Friday at ABC’s The View, the hosts spent an entire segment slamming Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson for his interview with porn star Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti Thursday night. The hosts took objection with Carlson calling the outspoken Avenatti a “creepy porn lawyer” in the lower-third at the bottom of the screen and calling him that moniker to sign off the interview.



Friday on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough took their liberal panel on the road to do their live show from Oxford, Mississippi, interviewing both Republican and Democrat candidates running for Senate races in the state. Frequent MSNBC panelist Eddie Glaude exemplified the liberal media’s bias against conservatives by asking the same question to both Democrats and Republicans, but changing his question to include a nasty smear attack on the panel’s one Republican guest.



For a second day in a row, The View host Sunny Hostin went on a tirade against President Trump for his comments touting the government aid given to Hurricane Maria hitting Puerto Rico last September. After media backlash, Trump doubled down and claimed the media had exaggerated the death toll. On Thursday's show, Hostin was irate at the President’s comments, saying this made him an “illegitimate president” and blamed a century old U.S. maritime law for the island being in financial ruin.



The View began Wednesday’s show by parroting the same overwrought analysis all over cable news this morning after President Trump came out touting the federal government’s response to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria hit last year. Co-host Sunny Hostin was the most vocal, admitting she had family there so she took the issue personally, blasting the administration for “allowing its own citizens to die.”



Wednesday morning the networks continued raging against President Trump for praising the federal response to Hurricane Maria last year from the Oval Office and on Twitter. Cecilia Vega issued her own scathing report on ABC’s Good Morning America, bashing Trump before anchor Robin Roberts brought on FEMA Chief Brock Long to get him to do the same. Unfortunately for ABC, the FEMA official didn’t exactly give them the politically motivated answers they were looking for.



Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway shot down media reports that the White House was in chaos, while speaking to PBS host and veteran correspondent Christiane Amanpour on her new PBS show Monday evening.



What greater way to honor the thousands of lives lost in the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil than to use its anniversary to slam our current president? Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough apparently thought this was a great idea, when he wrote in the Washington Post  that President Trump is a graver threat to the American dream than the September 11 terrorists.



Omarosa Manigault Newman was invited on ABC’s The View Monday, to release what was supposedly a damaging tape she recorded of President Trump in the Oval Office in 2017 (and promote her new book, of course.) Even after dismissing the former Apprentice star and White House aide as an unreliable opportunist in the past, the View, and the rest of the media suddenly had a new respect for her after she turned on President Trump with all sorts of sensational claims about life in the administration.



The View host Joy Behar appeared on CNN’s Van Jones Show Saturday evening to hawk her anti-Trump book released nearly a year ago, The Great Gasbag, and give her advice to the Democrat party on how to deal with Trump and win elections.



Friday at the Hot Topics table, the hosts of the View discussed President Trump’s rally Thursday where he called out the writer of the anonymous New York Times op-ed, as “treasonous.” The liberal hosts were aghast at Trump’s response, saying he was the real villain of this story. The panel compared Trump to former President Nixon and Whoopi even claimed that it was now “dangerous” for anyone to criticize Trump.



Thursday the hosts of ABC’s The View opened the show by gushing about the anonymous op-ed printed in The New York Times September 5, which was supposedly written by a senior member of the administration that’s part of the “resistance” against Trump. Most of the panel only had positive things to say about the article, with co-host Sunny Hostin even characterizing the anonymous writer as a hero who was “saving” America from Trump.



CNN political analyst and White House Correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks April Ryan appeared on The Daily Show Wednesday night to promote her new book about her time as a correspondent called “Under Fire.” The anti-Trump tone was evident from the beginning of the interview, with Noah and Ryan joking that her birthday wish was for Trump to be out of the White House



ABC political analyst Matthew Dowd is never lacking movie analogies and had them ready for Thursday’s Good Morning America, gushing to anchor George Stephanopoulos that President Trump had gone “full hunt for Red October” trying to find the source of the anonymous New York Times op-ed written by someone in the White House who identified himself as part of the “Resistance.”



Wednesday on The View, the hosts gave a warm welcome to former Secretary of State under President Obama, John Kerry, giving him the chance to promote his new memoir, while lobbing softballs about the Mueller probe, the Iran Deal and his relationship with John McCain.



CNN host Chris Cuomo appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers September 5, where he discussed all the things in the news cycle, from the Bob Woodward book to Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings. Discussing Tuesday's hearing, Cuomo accurately explained that the ability to appoint justices was why many conservatives embraced Trump. However, he made an eye-roll worthy claim in the middle of his otherwise sound argument.

 


The View returned Tuesday for its 22nd season on ABC, with new host Abby Huntsman, former host of Fox and Friends Weekend and daughter of Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman. The panel spent a good portion of the show discussing Senator John McCain’s funeral as co-host Meghan McCain was absent from the table. After praising their co-host for making a veiled swipe at Trump during her eulogy for her father, the panel moved on to slam First Daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, fellow White House adviser Jared Kushner for daring to attend the funeral.



September 4, the networks set the stage for the confirmation hearing “battle” brewing later Tuesday for President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. All three networks hyped baseless complaints and scare tactics from Democrats on Roe v. Wade and the Mueller probe, while not offering much from Republicans to counteract their claims.

 


MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle displayed yet again why the media don’t understand the average American voter, in an interview with liberal billionaire Tom Steyer on their August 30 show. Talking about the continued support for President Trump and Steyer’s initiative to get him impeached, the anchors lamented how awful it was that voters weren’t ready to see Trump impeached yet, and cared more about his policy instead of his character.

 


CNN analyst and White House correspondent for American Urban Radio April Ryan added to the media pile on of Republican nominee for governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, after he made an insensitive remark discussing his Democrat opponent’s liberal policies. The media seized on the gaffe Thursday morning, claiming it was a clear racist “dog whistle” that can be attributed to President Trump. Ryan herself slammed the Republican’s “mansplaining” on CNN’s New Day and bemoaned the lack of “political correctness” in today’s culture.

 


Don Lemon was so aghast about President Trump’s comments on Antifa being bolstered if Democrats sweep the Midterms this Fall, that he devoted three separate segments on his two hour show Tuesday night to it.
