Latest from Kristine Marsh

Monday The View began their hot topics segment defending Democrats and attacking Trump for his tweets against Rep. Elijah Cummings and his district in Baltimore, Maryland over the weekend. Co-host Sunny Hostin tried to make the case that Baltimore was a thriving city but Republican controlled-states were in worse shape, while Joy Behar pushed back against Trump calling Cummings ‘racist,’ suggesting it was impossible for a black person to be racist.



Friday on The View, the liberal co-hosts predicted that Republicans would cheat in 2020 and declared they couldn’t win “legitimately” no matter what. Following the media’s messaging that Republicans were happy to receive “help” from the Russians in 2016, and would do so again, the hosts warned that if Trump won reelection in 2020, everyone should call into question its legitimacy.



The Late Show host Stephen Colbert began his monologue Thursday night slamming the media’s coverage of Robert Mueller’s dud of a hearing, Wednesday. While complaining that CNN and MSNBC only cared about ratings, he fretted they were missing the bigger picture: Republicans want to ‘Kremlin-alize’ elections and ‘Doctor’ Mueller was just trying to save the country.



On Thursday’s The View, the co-hosts held a Skype interview with Democrat Adam Schiff about the Mueller hearing and what Democrats would do going forward. Co-hosts Ana Navarro and Whoopi Goldberg badgered Schiff that his party needed to impeach Trump now, while Joy Behar ranted Republicans were treasonous and being “helped” by Russia.



Thursday the hosts of The View reacted to Robert Mueller’s testimony Wednesday and as to be expected, attacked Republicans, while touting how untainted Mueller was from controversy. ABC legal analyst Dan Abrams argued Mueller had done Trump a “huge favor” and was clearly not anti-Trump, while Joy Behar attacked Republicans as being “disrespectful” to veterans.



On MTP Daily Wednesday evening, Trump-deranged host Chuck Todd commiserated with fellow liberal MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell over Robert Mueller’s testimony before Congress. Mitchell sadly conceded that this whole Russia investigation was probably finally over, but she couldn’t help but take swings at “shameful” Republicans while expressing her disappointment.



ABC’s live coverage team was quick to come to Robert Mueller’s defense after his first fumbling testimony before the House Judiciary Committee this morning was roundly criticized by media on both sides of the aisle. ABC characterized Mueller’s confused and evasive performance as simply the former Special Counsel being apolitical and “sticking to the facts.”



Journalists at ABC couldn’t hide their excitement over the upcoming Robert Mueller congressional hearing Wednesday morning, spinning it as the ideal time to impeach the President. Despite a failed attempt by one Democrat last week to secure the votes in the House for that cause, and the fact that the Justice Department says this hearing will not go beyond the bounds of the Mueller report, the Good Morning America team kept pushing the “i-word” repeatedly.



The hypocritical hosts of ABC’s The View displayed no shame on Tuesday’s show, passionately insisting that former Democrat Senator Al Franken should not have resigned after sexual assault allegations and damning photos came out against him in 2017. Yet the hosts had no problems slamming conservative Justice Brett Kavanaugh as a “guilty” “coward” and “frat boy” when baseless accusations with much less evidence came out against him in 2018.



The View co-hosts kept defending the Democrat “squad” Monday, after the media firestorm surrounding President Trump’s tweets against them refuses to die down. Co-host Sunny Hostin even attributed a fake quote to Thomas Jefferson to hail how patriotic these congresswomen were.

Whoopi Goldberg began the segment with a lengthy diatribe against Trump adviser Stephen Miller for defending Trump this weekend. Reading from a cue card, she began, “You know you’re a racist when":



After the New York Times spent the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 trashing America and touting Soviet Russia’s liberal values, it should come as no surprise that CNN would follow suit. Sunday, Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter brought on a socialist to explain to his audience why President Trump and Fox News were wrong; the left's embrace of socialism was all about “freedom” and saving America from “dangerous far-right populism.”



‘View’ co-hosts Joy Behar and Ana Navarro laid blame for protests over Puerto Rico's Democrat leadership squarely on President Trump on Friday’s show. Behar even claimed Trump was responsible for fascism spreading across the globe, comparing him to a deadly virus. Navarro also made excuses for the media's habit of ignoring Democrat scandals, saying that was a result of the “Trump effect.”



The four hosts of The View were unanimous in their displeasure over rally-goers chanting “send her back” at President Trump’s rally last night in Greenville, North Carolina. The hosts claimed it was “frightening” and “dystopian” and “invited violence.” Joy Behar wanted to know why the President couldn’t be charged with hate speech against Ilhan Omar over his tweets that inspired the chant.



Thursday morning all three networks began their shows expressing disgust at what happened at President Trump’s rally in Greenville, North Carolina last night. At one point, the crowd began to chant “Send her back,” referring to Rep. Ilhan Omar. On ABC’s Good Morning America, anchor George Stephanopoulos dragged out the Richard Nixon comparisons, while correspondent Terry Moran fretted that Trump supporters wanted to control who “gets to be an American.”



Wednesday the co-hosts of ABC’s The View were thrilled at the Democrats’ petulant display on the House floor yesterday voting to rebuke Trump’s “racist” tweets he sent last weekend against four Democrat congresswomen. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg compared the Democrats to patriots standing up against Trump’s “tyranny”, while Sunny Hostin gushed over the “masterful” and “impressive” move by Democrats.



Perhaps trying to rival Stephen Colbert for most Trump-deranged evening host on television, MSNBC pundit and host Donny Deutsch went off the deep end while guest on Colbert’s The Late Show Tuesday over President Trump’s tweets against four Democrat congresswomen. Deutsch accused any American who voted for President Trump again in 2020 of accepting white racism, and claimed that we were living in “the most frightening time this country has ever faced.”

 


Unfocused rage filled the hosts of The View Wednesday, as they accused President Trump of everything from “squelching” patriotic “dissent” from Ilhan Omar, to being a part of Jeffrey Epstein’s child rape scheme, to killing the planet with insecticides. After playing the press conference yesterday where freshman Democrat representatives Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley sounded off on Trump, even calling for his impeachment over tweets, co-host Sunny Hostin gushed her approval.



20 years after his death in a plane crash, John F. Kennedy Jr. is still being eulogized by the media as the president they wish they had. ABC’s Amy Robach interviewed his former colleague and friend RoseMarie Terenzio, on her new book out about the late Kennedy, on Good Morning America Tuesday. As usual, ABC’s report was heavy on the “royalty” comparisons, but with President Trump now in office, Robach and her guest made sure to also compare Kennedy favorably to Trump.

 


Monday the hosts of The View breathed a sigh of relief after the proposed ICE raids from President Trump over the weekend, were not as widespread as the media had hyped. Still, the hosts agreed that the raids were racist and cruel. Co-host Sunny Hostin even claimed that the President was “terrorizing citizens.”



After President Trump got backlash over the weekend for tweeting that four Democrat Congresswoman should “go back” and “fix” their broken countries, CNN’s two hour morning show, New Day picked up the media outrage, Monday. Co-hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota repeatedly dared Republicans in Congress to call in to the show and call Trump a racist. Even after some Republicans did come out to condemn the President’s comments, CNN still kept attacking them for not repeating their “racism” charges against Trump.
