Latest from Kristine Marsh

When you are suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome it’s hard to remember some basic facts. Co-host of The View, Joy Behar, forgot that Norway is on another continent on Tuesday’s show, when she asked if kids from “Norway” would be treated the same at border facilities.



All three networks Tuesday morning covered the sexual assault allegations by Elle magazine columnist E. Jean Carroll against President Trump, with NBC being the only network of the three to just do a brief on the story. However, the networks omitted the accuser’s very odd behavior and comments during an interview on CNN last night with Anderson Cooper, despite ABC and CBS showing other clips from that interview.



On Good Morning America Tuesday, the ABC news team behaved as if they were Democrats’ collective lawyer, trying to defend and justify the reasons why Democrats won’t funder border detention facilities. After fretting over the poor conditions at these detention centers, congressional correspondent Mary Bruce and anchor George Stephanopoulos went out of their way to defend Democrats and blame President Trump for the lack of funding.



President Trump is “terrorizing” illegal immigrants, according to the liberal media, by threatening mass deportations across the country. It was the buzz word used by MSNBC and CBS last week and on Monday, Princeton University professor and contributor Eddie Glaude repeated that rhetoric on MSNBC Live. He stopped just shy of calling the President a terrorist, accusing him of committing a “terroristic gesture” by threatening to enforce the law.



Ex-Republican and Washington Post columnist George Will appeared on The View Friday to promote his book and do the only thing right-leaning commentators are invited on television to do: bash President Trump and his supporters. Will got right to that, comparing “Trump Republicans” to cockroaches that had infested the party, to the friendly hosts. However, the tables turned quickly in the second half of the interview, as the liberal hosts attacked him for being against reparations.



When a sitting congresswoman sides with our enemy over our own country, is that not newsworthy? Apparently the networks didn’t think so. They ignored a tweet sent Thursday by Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar, where she blamed America for Iran shooting down one of our military’s drones. The networks, even cable news, were nowhere to be found Thursday evening or Friday morning.



New Day host Alisyn Camerota singled out and badgered a black Trump supporter on her show Thursday, for disagreeing that America was racist and it was all Trump’s fault. The liberal journalist sat down with a panel of six lifelong Democrat voters from rust belt states, four of whom voted for President Trump in 2016. Camerota was so eager to get the panel to bash Trump that she hounded one Trump supporter for daring to disagree with the liberal narrative on race relations.



Joy Behar defended Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on The View Wednesday, after the Democrat called ICE detention centers, “concentration camps.” Behar stood out from the rest of the hosts in agreeing with Ocasio-Cortez’s loaded assessment of President Trump's immigration policies, even suggesting that America was on the way to its own Holocaust.



Was Chris Matthews about to get another “thrill" up his leg? During an interview with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show Tuesday, the MSNBC host got sentimental, dreamily reminiscing about Joe Biden’s time in the White House and his bromance with President Obama.



Parkland school shooting survivor Kyle Kashuv made headlines this week after he revealed Harvard had rescinded his acceptance into the Ivy league school after racial slurs he texted at 16 years old were leaked to the media. A liberal mob called for the gun-rights activist to be punished for repeatedly using “n-word” in a group text with friends. On MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle Tuesday morning, the host brought on race-baiting expert Eddie Glaude and anti-Trumper David Jolly to deny there was any anti-conservative bias in the matter, with Glaude slamming Kashuv’s white privilege, and Jolly arguing that Kashuv was dangerous.



The hosts of The View saved time to bash White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Monday’s show, after she announced last week that she would be leaving her post at the end of the month. Whoopi and Joy Behar reveled in the news, mocking her while Sunny Hostin took a more dramatic tone, blasting Sanders as a liar who had forever tainted the position.

 


At the news that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders would be leaving her post at the end of the month, CNN shamelessly spent their primetime hours that night giving her most bitter foe in the press free reign to bash her character. Both Erin Burnett and Don Lemon brought on April Ryan, who isn’t event CNN’s own White House correspondent, to slam Sanders one last time as “suffering from lie-abetes” and declaring her was the “worst press secretary” in the past three decades.



Former Maryland Congressman John Delaney was on The View Thursday, joining the crowd of Democrat presidential candidates who have come on the show. Despite espousing many typical liberal, big government policies, he framed himself as a centrist Democrat, noting areas where his party was being extreme, fiscally. While Sunny Hostin pressed the Democrat from the left at every turn, even Joy Behar admitted she wasn’t for one of the party’s more radical bills.



The hosts at The View blasted President Trump Wednesday, for calling Democrat candidate Joe Biden “slow” and claiming he didn’t have the fortitude to make it on the campaign trail. That led to an entire segment of the hosts ragging on Trump for spreading "health conspiracy theories," which is too rich, coming from the same people who spread their own health conspiracy theories about Trump all the time.



The hosts were divided on The View Tuesday over Democrats dragging out John Dean to testify over the Mueller report Monday, where he compared President Trump to Richard Nixon. The stunt was praised by View hosts Sunny Hostin and fill-in host Deborah Roberts as historically necessary, but Meghan McCain called out the disgraced, former White House counsel for his partisanship and history of hackery.

 


CNN New Day started their show Tuesday morning with “breaking news” that Joe Biden would be taking on President Trump in a stump speech in Iowa today. The liberal network didn’t even pretend to be neutral about this development, instead leaving a chyron up the entire segment that read, “Biden to eviscerate Trump in Iowa speech today.” The panel, consisting of former CBS This Morning anchor Bianna Golodryga, hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman, as well as CNN regulars Jeffrey Toobin and John Avlon, hyped Biden persuading Iowans that Trump had ridden the coattails of Obama’s allegedly successful economy and a return to Biden was a return to Obama.



The hosts of ABC’s The View struggled on Monday’s show, between praising Joe Biden for flip-flopping on the Hyde Amendment last week, to expressing frustration that he wasn’t with the radical left to begin with. After pressure from the left, the former Vice President and current 2020 candidate came out this past week to say he now was against the amendment, which bans federal funding for abortion, after being in favor of it for the past forty years. Meghan McCain was the only critic of Biden’s flip- flopping.



Friday on The View, the liberal hosts took offense at the Wall Street Journal suggesting Joe Biden’s popularity in the 2020 race meant that Americans didn’t want a “far-left” Democrat. Joy Behar praised the virtues of liberalism while simultaneously denying Democrat policies were anything but “common sense.” Whoopi Goldberg even went out of her way to defend Democrats’ support for late-term abortion.

 


Sometimes you really have to wonder if the hosts of The View actually listen to anything coming out of their mouths. On Thursday’s show alone, the hosts politicized D-Day numerous times, connecting it to gay pride month in one segment, and in another segment, tying it to the southern border crisis. In that latter segment, co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin raged at the “illegal” and “despicable” funding cuts to recreational programs for illegal alien minors, while Whoopi Goldberg claimed our soldiers died fighting in Normandy so we could take care of illegal alien kids.



Wolf Blitzer and his CNN colleagues won’t acknowledge there’s an actual crisis at the southern border, but still insists it’s the United States’ responsibility to take in illegal immigrants. On his show The Situation Room Wednesday evening, Blitzer had on Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger to discuss immigration and even snuck in a snarky question about President Trump dodging the draft to the representative, who also serves in the Air Force.
