While discussing Wednesday night’s contentious Democratic debate, on Thursday morning, NBC’s Today show co-host Savannah Guthrie worried that the “non-Sanders” candidates were in a “circular firing squad” and wondered if the “moderate lane” would start to consolidate in the coming weeks.
On Wednesday afternoon, as CNN host Brooke Baldwin devoted part of a segment to Pete Buttigieg responding to Rush Limbaugh's comments about him being a gay presidential candidate, CNN Republican contributor and never Trumper Tara Setmayer took the lead in bashing Limbaugh and President Donald Trump as she lauded Buttigieg's reaction as "brilliant."
The morning after the Democratic primary debate in Las Vegas Wednesday night, CNN host Alisyn Camerota was very worried Democrats were being too harsh on each other. In particular, she was bothered by the candidates comparing Michael Bloomberg to President Trump.
Pity the poor liberal media. The Democrats staged a nasty debate last night, and the man who emerged the "big winner" was none other than... President Trump! So said Joe Scarborough and Donny Deutsch on today's Morning Joe. Making matters much worse, Donny divined that Bernie Sanders is "rolling" toward the nomination, yet has "no shot" at beating Trump. That left poor Donny "panicked. Absolutely panicked."
Thursday on Good Morning America, ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos worked with disgraced former Democrat congresswoman Katie Hill, to revamp her reputation. Hill resigned last November after a bizarre sex scandal with a campaign staffer came to light, but Stephanopoulos praised Hill as a “resilient woman” who should have “stayed and fought” against her critics.
After a 11:00 p.m. Eastern hour Wednesday in which MSNBC couldn’t decide whether to feel pleased or upset with the feisty Democratic presidential debate, Thursday’s midnight Eastern hour took a turn toward concern that millionaire socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) emerged unscathed on what “was a great night for Donald Trump.”
MSNBC wasn’t sure whether to react with approval or horror Wednesday night after the 2020 Democratic presidential debate. In the first 15 minutes, MSNBC analysts, hosts, and pundits offered debate descriptions ranging from “a presidential version of Survivor” to “the most expensive night in Vegas” to an event at “the Roman Coliseum” to “boxing in the 1950s.”
The first three words of CNN’s analysis after Wednesday’s Nevada Democratic presidential debate, provided by chief political analyst Gloria Borger, summed up the panel’s consensus: “Bloomberg was awful.” Whether it was comparisons to the Titanic or getting punched in the face, the criticism only got worse as the liberal panel began to mock former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg for being grossly unprepared to field the obvious questions about his record.
Socialism came up in Wednesday’s Democratic debate, but co-moderator Chuck Todd wondered if Pete Buttigieg is out of touch by NOT being a socialist. He even grilled billionaire Michael Bloomberg on whether his wealth is “obscene” and “should you have earned that money?” Talking to the millennial Buttigieg, the NBC journalist demanded, “In 2000, you wrote an award-winning essay. You praised Senator Sanders. You specifically praised him for embracing socialism.
I love that dystopian stories are “in” for young adults right now because, hopefully, they’re taking some of these messages to heart. In Hulu’s new offering Utopia Falls, the message is clear: the big government that says they’re keeping you safe is actually keeping you in prison or enslaved - you just haven’t figured it out yet.
During the Democratic debate on Wednesday, co-moderator Vanessa Hauc of Telemundo went hard left as she lobbied Joe Biden on putting gas executives who are “harming our planet” in jail. When she didn’t get the right answer, she pressed Biden again. Hauc used alarmist language, demanding, “You said you want to hold oil and gas executives account an for their role in harming our planet. You have even suggested that you might put them in jail. Which companies are you talking about and how far are you willing to go?”
After arguably muted coverage of President Trump’s pardons Tuesday evening, ABC and NBC took to whining about former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich (D) for showing “no remorse for his crimes” during a press conference outside his Chicago home on Wednesday. But while they were huffing about Blago’s attitude, none of them cared to mention how President Obama had commuted the sentence of unrepentant, Puerto Rican terrorist Oscar Lopez-Rivera shortly before Trump’s inauguration.
Many of Hollywood’s effete actors might be all for socialist, billionaire-busting 2020 candidates like Bernie Sanders or Liz Warren, but the guys who call the shots and foot the bill in the entertainment industry might be into a racist billionaire for president this year.
Chuck Todd seems worried. The MSNBC host — who will be co-moderating Wednesday night’s Democratic primary debate — spent most of an hour talking to surrogates from several of the campaigns. He vacillated on whether the proper strategy is for Democrats to “unload everything they have” now or, using a term he repeated often, “pull some punches” while debating?
On his radio show, Mark Levin routinely mocks the Mediaite website and its owner, ABC legal analyst Dan Abrams. On Wednesday, Mediaite returned fire with a nasty article headlined “Mark Levin Goes on Nuts Tear Against Bernie Sanders, Calls Him an Anti-Semite With an ‘Islamo-Nazi Mentality’.”
