MSNBC Analyst Celebrates Liberal Media's United Front Against Trump

Somebody forgot to tell MSNBC analyst Karine Jean-Pierre that the liberal media aren't supposed to openly admit — let alone celebrate — the fact that they're united in opposition to President Trump.

Thursday on Deadline White House, host Nicolle Wallace noted that all the Dem presidential candidates are "singing from one song sheet" in attacking Trump. As an example, she cited Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and former Congressman Beto O'Rourke (TX) both calling Trump a "white supremacist."

Jean-Pierre, who in addition to her MSNBC gig is a MoveOn.org spokesperson, then said:

And there's another thing too, I think the media has been on one accord as well, which is calling out this cruelty, which is making sure we have space, people can go on television and talk about what’s happening. And so when you have that, when you have the media doing its job, when you have Democrats on one accord, then you see the realness of this President. The lack, we have a small man in the White House and we see it over and over again and we know this. We know this. It's just this week something about this week has helped us really magnify that. 

 

So not only is Jean-Pierre thrilled that the liberal media speak in one voice in attacking Trump, but she also celebrated the one-two punch of the media and the Dems going after the President. 

What's that line about a gaffe being when a political type tells the truth?

MSNBC’s Deadline: White House
August 8, 2019
4:08 p.m. Eastern

KARINE JEAN-PIERRE: It's almost as if that very important shift that's needed for the characterization of a — of a president, right, the care, the heart, that every — we've seen from every president as you just mentioned, whether it's Republican or Democrat, he's missing it. He doesn't have it and he doesn't even try. The shallowness, the tone deafness, he will never be able to rise to the occasion because he cannot and he only cares about Donald Trump. The thing about this week that I found that was really interesting was you actually saw him flailing. You saw him out there just flailing about and the reason why is because all of the Democratic candidates were on one accord, right? They were all one accord.

NICOLLE WALLACE: Right. That’s the variable. Right I want to ask you about — I want to follow up with you because Maggie Haberman in that interview points to Pittsburgh as being an example. The bar is incredibly low, but I suppose her point was he met the incredibly low bar we have for him. The variable is, as you say, the Democrats running to replace him, they have a stage now and they're all singing from one song sheet. 

JEAN-PIERRE: Exactly.

WALLCE: You have Beto O’Rouke and Elizabeth Warren both saying yesterday they believe Donald Trump is a white supremacist. 

JEAN-PIERRE: And they're showing something that we haven't seen in three years, which is leadership, right? We have not seen that. So you saw that from Cory Booker, you saw that from Joe Biden. You've certainly seen that time and time again this week from Beto O’Rourke. The clip you showed of him holding that man who's crying, right? Because we have to understand there's a community out there, the Latin community, immigrant community, that is not being represented by this President. They're being attacked by this President and so it's very, very real. And there's another thing too, I think the media has been on one accord as well, which is calling out this cruelty, which is making sure we have space, people can go on television and talk about what’s happening. And so when you have that, when you have the media doing its job, when you have Democrats on one accord, then you see the realness of this President. The lack, we have a small man in the White House and we see it over and over again and we know this. We know this. It's just this week something about this week has helped us really magnify that.
