Throughout President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Phoenix, Arizona, MSNBC’s The Last Word would break away from the live video in order to do on-the-fly commentary, which often included attacking the President on what he was saying. Towards the end of the of the 10 o’clock hour, host Lawrence O’Donnell left the Trump rally behind to really give his stacked liberal panel a good go at Trump and his supporters.


On Tuesday's All In, recurring MSNBC guest and Slate columnist Michelle Goldberg asserted that President Donald Trump is going to Phoenix "in the hopes of starting a riot" as she declared that his holding the rally so soon after the Charlottesville violence is "sick." Host Chris Hayes then likened President Trump to a "Molotov cocktail" visiting the city.

 

 


The “anti-fascist” or “Antifa” movement is justifying violent action in the streets to beat back racists and neo-Nazis. Violence – not as an accidental outburst, but as an explicit strategy –  used to be seen as a beyond-the-pale extreme. Now Chuck Todd & Co. are ushering Antifa’s extreme into polite society. The NBC referees believe rioting is worth at least some respect as a way to jolt the debate to the left.


President Trump was renowned for his prolific and infamous use of Twitter to both aid his message and to stir up controversy. But during Tuesday’s The Lead on CNN, host Jake Tapper tried to link someone else’s Instagram controversy to the President. The controversy was sparked by Louise Linton, the wife of Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, who got into a heated exchange over a comment left on an Instagram photo.


From the "Hello, darkness, my old friend ... I've come to talk with you again" files:

ESPN has drop-kicked one of its college football broadcasters from the Virginia vs. William & Mary game, on Sept. 2, for no reason other than his name is "Robert Lee." This is no joke. ESPN really is that sensitive and that PC. That childish, too, for that matter.


MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews left viewers on Tuesday night with a rather disturbing image of Matthews grunting and stretching while giving his best Incredible Hulk impression ahead of a Phoenix Trump rally that he insinuated could turn violent. The Atlantic’s Rosie Gray was noting the difference between Trump with a Teleprompter versus without when Matthews interjected that the latter is “[w]hen his Incredible Hulk thing grows in him.”


Michael Bennett of the Seattle Seahawks recently called on Whites in the NFL to support Blacks in their protests against racism. The initial response of Whites has fallen far short of what a Marxist university professor considers acceptable and gives him cause to make a case for excessive white guilt. Furman University Professor of Education P.L. Thomas pushed the white guilt angle in a Huffington Post diatribe titled "Progressive, White Athletes Must Learn How To Stand In Solidarity."


Most people across the country have little trust in the “mainstream media” due to unchecked errors and false reporting, but on Tuesday, Mike Wise -- a former Washington Post columnist who's now with ESPN's The Undefeated -- joined that group when he was disciplined for posting false quotes in an attempt to prove people will believe anything published online.


Conservative author, and anti-Donald Trump pundit, P.J. O’Rourke appeared on MSNBC, Tuesday, to say something pleasing to MSNBC types. Talking about the President’s upcoming rally in Phoenix, O’Rourke attacked, “Oh, I think the President is going to use humor tonight. He’s going to come out in a bed sheet with a Tiki torch.” 


Throughout the day on Tuesday, MSNBC sounded the alarm that President Trump’s planned rally in Phoenix, Arizona could lead to violence. Hour after hour, hosts, pundits, and correspondents hyped “concerns about people’s safety” and the “combustible situation” that was supposedly being created by the presidential visit.


Apple’s $1 million donation to the anti-conservative Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) was just the beginning. Two more groups, J.P. Morgan Chase bank and the Clooney Foundation for Justice, recently announced they would pledged their own millions to that left-wing organization.


Today in the Washington Post, a curious thing happened; a contributing writer for the national newspaper actually argued against conservatives right to the First Amendment, seemingly not understanding her own right to print that opinion is protected by the same amendment. Professor Jennifer Delton’s arduous piece,“When Free Speech Becomes a Political Weapon,” in a nutshell, attacked the right, and “alt right,” for “using” free speech as a “weapon” to advance their unwelcome ideologies, which she says “subvert our democracy.”


Considering the state of world affairs, what is the most significant threat currently confronting mankind? According to author Fiona Helmsley, it’s the threat of “male fragility, and men just not being able to process their feelings of insecurity, their feelings of anger.”


A spate of liberal magazines unleashed their fury at Donald Trump’s post-Charlottesville remarks with artistic covers mocking Trump with Ku Klux Klan hoods and Nazi salutes. On Tuesday, The Washington Post celebrated the liberal trend – and never, ever called it liberal. They were merely “internationally prominent.” The headline in bold, large type was a quote: “We can’t let the images be too timid,” and the subtitle was “Magazines use provocative imagery after Trump’s comments about participants in the Charlottesville confrontations.”


President Trump said a lot of things in the wake of the Charlottesville violence, many of them unhelpful. But he got one big thing unequivocally correct when he said of the Maoist statue topplers: “So, this week it’s Robert E. Lee, I noticed that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. I wonder,” Trump asked, “is it George Washington next week? And is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You know, you really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?”
