Latest from Kristine Marsh

What a bad week for Joy Behar and her hot takes. Wednesday on The View, the co-host rushed to judgement after two people entered a kosher market in Jersey City and began shooting, Tuesday, killing three civilians and one police officer. Before the suspects were identified, Behar immediately pinned the blame on the right and “anti-Semitic” President Trump.



The View hosts were grateful to get another opportunity to lavish praise on teenage climate crusader Greta Thunberg after Time Magazine named her their “Person of the Year,” Wednesday. On Thursday’s show, climate-obsessed host Joy Behar bashed President Trump as “jealous” of the “very smart” liberal teen, while her co-host Meghan McCain whined that she wanted the whistleblower to be "Person of the Year."



A new Quinnipiac poll out Tuesday reveals the Democrats’ push to impeach President Trump appears to be working against them with voters, with a slight majority now opposing impeachment. The hosts of The View were upset at this news and lashed out at their Republican guest co-host, former Governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie on Wednesday's show, blaming Republican “tactics” for persuading voters against impeachment.



All three networks spent time Wednesday hyping radical Swedish teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg being honored by Time Magazine today with their “Person of the Year” award. Journalists from ABC, NBC, and CBS all praised the “deserving” “good choice” and touted the teen “taking on” world leaders while “inspiring” other teens to become climate evangelists.



The hosts of The View talked briefly Tuesday about Clint Eastwood’s latest biographical film on fake news victim Richard Jewell, who was falsely branded by the media as a terrorist in 1996. Instead of discussing the media’s culpability in ruining this man’s life, however, Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin attacked Eastwood instead for his film’s depiction of a now-deceased Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter.



As Democrats announced two articles of impeachment against President Trump this morning, ABC News broke in with a special report largely focused on defending the party’s partisan push to remove Trump from office. Each ABC journalist then went on to parrot Democrat talking points, arguing they were upholding the Constitution, not acting in their own political interests.



Longtime NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw came on CBS’s The Late Show Monday to talk about his new Watergate book and compare the impeachment inquiry of Richard Nixon to the current impeachment of President Trump. While he was there, he also boasted how journalists in his day could be counted on to report accurately; but today, people got their news from social media which couldn’t be trusted.



The hosts of The View were all over the map on Monday’s show while discussing the latest strong jobs report that was released Friday. Unable to face facts, the hosts tried to argue the economy was actually a negative for Trump. The liberal hosts suddenly pretended to care about the rising deficit, while at the same time, griping that more money wasn't being put into food stamps. Co-host Joy Behar even suggested that half the country supported impeaching Trump because the economy wasn't benefiting them.



Late Show host Stephen Colbert joined the rest of the blatantly partisan media cheering on Nancy Pelosi for scolding Sinclair News reporter James Rosen about her Catholic faith, Thursday. After paying tribute to the Democrat with a weird sing-a-long, which demanded President Trump call Pelosi his “boss,” Colbert wasn’t done fawning over the House Speaker. A self-proclaimed Catholic, he cheered on his idol zinging Rosen, all the while mocking Catholicism.



The hosts of The View revealed the absurd lengths they will go to defend their favored candidate on Friday’s show. After Joe Biden shouted down a Democrat voter on the campaign trail for daring to question why his son was qualified to be on the board of Ukrainian gas company, Burisma, the hosts claimed Biden was just responding like any parent would when their “kid” was attacked.



House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is receiving rave reviews from the media for angrily lecturing a reporter during a press conference Thursday. That’s right, the same media who hysterically cries the United States is turning into North Korea because President Trump sometimes calls hostile reporters “enemy of the people,” is now lauding a Democrat politician for lashing out at a conservative reporter over his pointed question.



If you’re looking for insightful political analysis, The View might be the most obvious show to skip. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg proposed her theory that Republicans and Trump’s base would abandon Republicans in Congress if they continued to oppose impeaching President Trump. Yes, you read that correctly. According to Whoopi, Republican voters really wanted to “keep the country together” by joining the Democrats in ousting President Trump.



Predictably, the liberal View hosts weren’t embarrassed by Democrat witness Pamela Karlan’s smug, rage-filled performance during Wednesday’s impeachment inquiry hearing. Co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and guest host Bari Weiss even defended the Stanford professor attacking the President's teenage son, before ripping into Republicans as hypocrites who don't care about the migrant children at the border.



In what has increasingly become Democrats’ favorite excuse, The View’s Sunny Hostin claimed Kamala Harris’s failed campaign was due to racism and sexism. On Wednesday’s show, the co-host was visibly distraught at the news Harris had dropped out of the 2020 race. Instead of acknowledging the Democrat's campaign problems, Hostin pulled the race and gender cards. Along with Joy Behar, she also suggested the country was more racist after they elected Barack Obama twice, because voters then elected President Trump.



Minutes before Wednesday’s House Judiciary Committee impeachment inquiry hearing began, ABC journalists were already spinning what Republicans would say as nonsense. ABC’s Senior Congressional Correspondent Mary Bruce and Senior White House Correspondent Cecilia Vega dismissed Republicans as stooges for President Trump who would stop at nothing to disrupt the hearing with their “theatrics."



Liberal Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus bashed the right as having trouble "accepting the facts,” on Morning Joe Tuesday. She was on MSNBC plugging her new anti-Kavanaugh book “Supreme Ambition,” which compares last year’s Supreme Court Justice confirmation hearings to the present day impeachment hearings. In it, Marcus argues that Republicans were unwilling to believe “the evidence” against Kavanaugh, just as they’re unwilling to believe the evidence for impeachment.



At the announcement that the media and Hollywood’s favorite candidate Kamala Harris had told her staff she was dropping out of the 2020 presidential race Tuesday, many cable news analysts expressed dismay. Yet MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle found a glimmer of hope in the whole situation: Now the former California attorney general would be free to prosecute President Trump!



Monday on The View, each liberal host blew a gasket over President Trump cracking down on bloated government assistant programs, calling it “cruel.” The hosts were referring to a Trump administration proposal that would place reduce SNAP’s budget by an estimated 4.2 billion dollars and place tighter work requirements upon those who receive food stamps. One host even wondered what was “wrong” with allowing the government to "feed and house" millions of people.



This could only happen on MSNBC. Wednesday night, lefty documentary filmmaker Michael Moore came on The Last Word to share his advice on how liberals can change the hearts and minds of their “bigoted” Republican family members. His winning strategy? Convince them why big government is your friend, not your enemy!



On Wednesday’s The View, the frequently uncivil hosts spent a short segment reminiscing over more civil times in the country. While Whoopi Goldberg wondered why the country couldn’t return to having polite disagreements at the dinner table this Thanksgiving, her co-hosts suggested it wasn’t our fault; it was President Trump’s.
