‘Dangerous’ and ‘Deranged’ Trump Vs. Best Version of Biden ‘Ever!’

April 1st, 2024 9:40 AM

The 2024 race is officially on and it’s being billed (by the leftist media) as a rematch between a “dangerous” and “deranged” Donald Trump versus the “best” “version” of Joe Biden “ever!”

That’s right. According to MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, the gaffe-prone President Biden everyone sees today is the “version of Biden intellectually, analytically” that is “the best Biden ever.” 

Meanwhile his MSNBC colleague Joy Reid warned her audience that the “dangerous and clearly deranged” Trump was the conservative movement’s “useful scary clown.” 

This past month also saw journalists deliberately take Trump’s economic “bloodbath” comment out of context. ABC’s George Stephanopoulos and Jon Karl called the “incendiary” speech “dark and menacing.”

Hollyweird also attacked Trump. Robert DeNiro raged: “The guy is a total monster….He’s such a mean, nasty, hateful person. I’d never play him as an actor because I can’t see any good in him.”

The following are just some of the worst outbursts from journalists and celebrities from the last month: 


Best Version of Biden Ever!



“You talk to him [Joe Biden] for hours at a time. Is he slower? Does he move slower? Yeah, he moves slower. Is he stiffer? Yeah, he moves stiffer. Does he have trouble walking sometimes? Yeah, so did FDR. We get out of the Depression, we won a G.D. war….against Nazism…Start your tape right now, because I’m about to tell you the truth. And f-you if you can’t handle the truth. This version of Biden intellectually, analytically, is the best Biden ever. Not a close second. And I’ve known him for years. The Brzezinskis have known him for 50 years. If it weren’t the truth, I wouldn’t say it.”

Reid Rants: “Dangerous,” “Deranged” Trump is Conservatives’ “Useful Scary Clown”



“As dangerous and clearly deranged as [Donald] Trump is, we have to start asking not just what’s wrong with a society that produces so much support for this chaos theater, but also who is it that so badly wants Trump to be President?…Men of great wealth, who have long sought to return to a time where people like them didn’t pay income taxes or face regulation over their businesses and didn’t have to worry about labor unions, workers’ rights, or competitions from women or blacks….They could call themselves good Christians and never think twice about dirty words like diversity, history, accountability, or equity. These are the men behind organizations like Project 2025, the Claremont Institute, the Heritage Foundation, and whatever Leonard Leo is up to at any given time. Trump, in many ways, is just their useful scary clown.”
— Host Joy Reid on MSNBC’s The ReidOut, March 19. 


Taking Trump’s “Bloodbath” Comment Out of Context



“There was at least one person who testified, a police officer, that she was literally slipping in pools of blood on January 6th. So the question of whether he meant actual blood seems a bit besides the point at this point. But what’s much more important is what this maniac is actually vowing to do if elected again….This mad man, whose brain is clearly addled and little more than a ball of smooth clay at this stage of its deterioration, makes these promises to feed chum to a base that has been drilled by right-wing media to now care more about stopping migrants — even if they themselves live thousands of miles from the southern border — than about the economy or inflation or literally anything else.”
— Host Joy Reid on MSNBC’s The ReidOut, March 18.

Co-host George Stephanopoulos: “We’re going to get the latest now on the race for the White House and the incendiary speech from Donald Trump at a rally over the weekend with praise for the January 6 convicts, attacks on immigrants as subhuman, and a warning of a bloodbath for the country if he’s defeated. Chief Washington correspondent Jon Karl has the story.”...
Correspondent Jonathan Karl: “Good morning, George. Even by Trump standards, Donald Trump’s speech over the weekend was dark and menacing.”
— ABC’s Good Morning America, March 18.


Former Clinton Defender Tries to Rape-Shame Rep. Nancy Mace For Endorsing Trump



Moderator George Stephanopoulos: “You’ve endorsed Donald Trump for president. Judges and two separate juries have found him liable for rape and for defaming the victim of that rape. How do you square your endorsement of Donald Trump with the testimony we just saw?”
Rep. Nancy Mace: “Well, I will tell you. I was raped at the age of 16, and any rape victim will tell you — I’ve lived for 30 years with an incredible amount of shame over being raped. I didn’t come forward because of that judgment and shame that I felt, and it’s a shame that you will never feel, George. And I’m not going to sit here on your show and be asked a question meant to shame me about another potential rape victim. I’m not going to do that.”...
Stephanopoulos: “Doesn’t it make it harder for women to come forward when they’re defamed by presidential candidates?”
Mace: “It makes it harder when other women joke about it, and she's joked about it. I find it offensive. And I also find it offensive that you are trying to shame me with this question.”

Biden Should Denounce Trump as “Rapist, Racist, Fascist” 

“If he’s [Donald Trump] going to be shameless, which is his greatest asset, the shamelessness of him, then Biden has to get in there very hard and go ‘rapist, racist, fascist,’ over and over and over again. And then the trials are happening at the same time. He’s just had to pay — he’s just $93 million poorer right now, and just hammer it in with those three things — ‘rapist, racist, fascist.’”
— Former Wall Street Journal reporter/current podcaster Kara Swisher on CNN’s The Chris Wallace Show, March 9.


Not the Answers She Was Fishing For



Correspondent Weijia Jiang: “President Biden has called Trump a threat to democracy and made it a central part of his campaign. Is democracy on the ballot in 2024?”
Arizona voter Steve Macias: “I don’t buy that argument.”
Arizona voter Raquel Glowden: “I don’t, either.”
Macias: “To me, now, that's just another talking point. Every time I hear it, I just kind of tune it out….It’s something that, you know…some focus group came up with, and now they’re just using it to death.”
Glowden: “I really don’t think they understand what democracy is when they say that. You know — the fact that there is a ballot is democracy.”
CBS Evening News, March 20.


“We Could Be a Dictatorship Next Year” If Trump Wins 



“This [State of the Union Address] is a real historical moment. We could be a dictatorship next year if Donald Trump is elected and carries through on his threats and carries through on his threats to suspend the Constitution. That’s what’s at stake. So Joe Biden could finesse it and talk about other things or he could confront the elephant in the room and say, you know, ‘This is a year when we Americans have to choose whether we’re going to live as a democracy, as a republic, or as an authoritarian system.’”
— Presidential historian Michael Beschloss previewing State of the Union address on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, March 7.


“Bully” Trump Has “Affection For Strongmen” 

Host Chris Wallace: “What’s with [Donald] Trump’s affection for strongmen?”
Former Wall Street Journal reporter/current podcaster Kara Swisher: “He’s watched Godfather too many times. I don’t know. He’s just a bully and so he likes bullies and he’s not as good as it as they are. So he’s cos-playing bullying. He likes that. Dictator-y.”
— CNN’s The Chris Wallace Show, March 16.


Things They Never Said When MSNBC Hired Jen Psaki 



New York Times columnist David Brooks: “Here [Former RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel] was someone clearly over the line. Like, to be on our air and our newspapers, you got to have some intellectual credibility. You have to have some primary commitment to the truth and the truth above partisanship and she was someone who clearly fails that test….To get somebody right off the RNC on the air as an analyst strikes me as just a gigantic mistake.”...
Washington Post Associate Editor/MSNBC host Jonathan Capehart: “When the announcement was made….I wrote in response, ‘I want to be clear, she will never be on our show,’ for the exact reasons David talked about….This is not a partisan issue. This was a democracy issue.”
PBS NewsHour, March 29.


Racism Motivates Conservative Evangelicals

“I’ve just been, like, very interested in the roots of how evangelicals became such a potent political force. It was 1980 and it was really school desegregation efforts and it was the Bob Jones fight against the IRS that brought evangelicals into the movement.....Not abortion, not busing, but really desegregation was the thing that brought evangelicals into political movement of the right-wing….Really, at its core, it was race….We think about evangelicals and Trump as being so different….these godly, you know, faithful people, and this unfaithful person who’s been found guilty in civil trials of sexual assault — the issue of race animates Donald Trump. The issue of race has long animated the evangelical movement. And, in some ways, it makes perfect sense that you are seeing the unity that you are today.”

Those Silly Voters Worrying About Illegal Immigration



MSNBC host and former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki: “If you look at some of these exit polls — I mean, I live in Virginia. Immigration was the number one issue.”...
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow: “Well, Virginia does have a border with West Virginia. Very contested area.”
MSNBC host Joy Reid: “Build the wall!”
Psaki: “But you’re thinking like — what? When I was in New Hampshire, people were talking about the northern border as a threat because Trump has indoctrinated people with this fear of people who do not….look like them — being a threat to them.”
— During MSNBC’s live Super Tuesday coverage, March 5. 


Want Another Election After ‘24? Better Vote Biden



“Americans will have to face the fact that this is, in the words of a dear friend of this show, do-you-want-to-have-any-more-elections, election. Where voters are not just choosing between two candidates, but making critical decisions about the basic fundamentals of our democracy.”
— Host Nicolle Wallace on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House, March 5.


SCOTUS Libs Not Left Enough for Kooky Keith

“The Supreme Court has betrayed democracy. Its members including Jackson, Kagan and Sotomayor have proved themselves inept at reading comprehension. And collectively the ‘court’ has shown itself to be corrupt and illegitimate. It must be dissolved.”
— March 4 X post (formerly twitter) by former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann. 


Clarence Thomas “Traded” His Votes for a “Fabulous Lifestyle”



“I don’t know if he [Justice Clarence Thomas] believes this stuff or not, but essentially his votes are traded for a fabulous lifestyle that he couldn’t get from a job and the irony is he couldn’t get the job you wanted to be a rich lawyer because of racism.”
— Host Joy Reid on MSNBC’s The ReidOut, March 30.


2024 = A Choice “Between Freedom and Democracy or World Wide Slavery and Dictatorship”



“We’re not only facing….a domestic authoritarian threat from Donald Trump and people who want to see this a dictatorship next year, but at the same time, he is connecting with dictators abroad: Viktor Orban, [Vladimir] Putin, perhaps the leader of Turkey, possibly elements in China and elsewhere. These people are going to lock arms….Americans have to make a choice. We have to, essentially, choose between freedom and democracy, or worldwide slavery and dictatorship. Any other year, that would be an overstatement.”
— MSNBC presidential historian Michael Beschloss on MSNBC’s The Weekend, March 4.


Americans Who Live on “Stolen Land” Should Stop Griping About Crime Epidemic

Trump’s “Bloodbath” Comment = Genocidal “Rhetoric” From WWII



“It [bloodbath comment] scared me, honestly, you know? I didn’t think ever in my lifetime I would see that….He [Donald Trump] is using that kind of World War II rhetoric that led to the deaths of six — the murders of 6 million people.” 
— Co-host Sunny Hostin on ABC’s The View, March 18.


“Biden Has Accomplished More In Three Years Than Every Other President In The Last 50”

“When we talk about — you know when the pundits and the press talk about ageism, it’s not ageism, it’s weak-ism. Right? It’s the perception of weakness and it taps into the sick, primitive, scared monkey, caveman DNA that’s in us. Right? So when we look at him [Joe Biden] we go ‘Ooh. Chief weak. He no hunt mammoth. We no eat. Bad chief.’ And that’s really what they’re talking about. And the people who know better need to cut that out. Because if he was so weak how could he accomplish more in three years than every other president in the last 50?”
— Author Max Brooks on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, March 8.


Constitution To Blame for Possible “Mess” of Trump Being Re-Elected

DeNiro Worried “Mean, Nasty, Hateful” Trump Will Start a “Dictatorship”



“The guy [Donald Trump] is a total monster….He’s such a mean, nasty, hateful person. I’d never play him as an actor because I can’t see any good in him…If he wins the election, you [Bill Maher] won’t be on this show anymore, he’ll come looking for me. They’ll be things that happened that none of us can imagine. That’s what happens in that kind of a dictatorship which is what he says, let’s believe him, take him at his word.”
— Actor Robert DeNiro on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, March 8.
