Apparently, CNN can tell the truth about the media’s liberal bias. But seemingly only past one o’clock in the morning Eastern time (and thus when most people weren’t watching), this was when CNN host Chris Cuomo admitted that the media elevated and ‘polished the apple’ of certain Democratic candidates. Continuing CNN’s post-Democratic primary debate analysis in the wee hours of Thursday morning, Cuomo looked at his panel and declared: “[former Congressman Beto O’Rourke] had been having his apple polished by the media for some time.”
While MSNBC analysts were peeved by the lack of Trump talk in Wednesday night’s debate, the network’s post-debate panel more than made up for the discrepancy, with much of their discussion centering around the President. In fact during those two hours of special coverage, the panel referred to Donald Trump far more often than they did to any of the Democratic candidates.
NBC's Seth Meyers offered his usual Democratic hack spin on Tuesday night, praising the 2020 Democratic debaters as “sane” and, weirdly, Elizabeth Warren as like a southern matriarch? Though he had some gentle ribbing about the Dems on the stage, he gushed, “And no matter what you think of the Democrats, this is why it was refreshing to see sane human beings speaking in coherent sentences about actual policies on national television for a change.”
The Democratic Primary race for 2020 officially kicked off Wednesday night with the first presidential debate on MSNBC, NBC, and Telemundo. The coterie of lefty late-night hosts immediately began live broadcasting in the aftermath of the debate. Among them was The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah, who made it obvious who he believed won the night.
While MSNBC was raging about the 2020 Democratic candidates not bashing President Trump enough during Wednesday’s debate, the liberal panel on CNN seemed okay with it. “We saw a range of views on stage tonight in Miami at the Democratic debate, except on the subject of President Trump. On that, the candidates were of one voice and they didn't miss a chance to make to clear who their real opponent is,” host Anderson Cooper stated after coming back from a commercial break.
During MSNBC’s post-debate coverage on Wednesday, Saturday Night Politics host Donny Deutsch found himself in rhetorical cage match to the death against Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell after Deutsch opined that Democrat Elizabeth Warren would lose in a landslide to President Trump and that no candidate on night one could currently beat the President.
And the winner of the first half of the first Democratic Party primary debates was...According to most of CNN’s post-debate analysts and commentators, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. Shortly after sharing a highlight reel from the NBC News debate, the CNN analysts began to coalesce around Warren’s performance.
The NBC and MSNBC hosts for the very first 2020 Democratic presidential debate on Wednesday catered to the party’s far-left base, offering questions about just how to take guns away from Americans, the need for aggressive action on climate change and repeated questions about how the nominee would fight the looming threat of Mitch McConnell.
Awww, hopefully everyone at MSNBC leaves tonight with a comfort animal of their choice. In the first few minutes after the first 2020 Democratic presidential debate on Wednesday, panelists were livid that there wasn’t enough Trump bashing to the point that they wondered whether the candidates consciously decided that the President became a real-life Voldemort who’s name “will not be mentioned.”
Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale has now gone so far left that it’s hard to make any sense of it anymore. This season’s appeals to fake refugee and child-molesting priests narratives were already bad enough, but the latest episode takes things to a new level with more bizarre anti-Christian sentiments, including a Nazi parallel. I guess nothing’s too outrageous so long as it insults a massive religion.
In the moments before Wednesday’s 2020 Democratic presidential candidates on MSNBC, the assembled cast of characters serving as the warm-up didn’t disappoint in bringing their anti- Trump heat to the first Democratic Primary debate. All In host Chris Hayes launched this attack on the 2016 Republican primaries: “We all watched those Republican debates which were insane. They were the ugliest, most depraved, indecorous displays that anyone had ever seen....we watched them go after each other.”
It turns out even the Democrats running against President Donald Trump aren’t radical enough for the Hollywood activists. During the first round of the Democratic Presidential Debate on the night of June 26, actors, comedians, and singers listened eagerly to the words of the candidates. With the exception of Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), the candidates were all dismissed by the wealthy elite on the West Coast.
The circus surrounding the U.S. national women’s soccer team expanded into three rings Wednesday. Headed for a Friday quarterfinal match against France in the World Cup, a prominent member of Team USA accused President Donald Trump of getting angry with women he can't grope. He let loose an early morning flurry of Tweets saying the team should respect the flag, and he inviting the team to the White House win or lose. USA Today’s anti-Trumper sports staff predictably sided with the soccer team and bashed the president.
In theory, a primary debate on cable is a time to analyze the quality and suitability of presidential contenders. But then there’s MSNBC. Unhinged debate analyst Joy Reid on Wednesday demanded to know how 2020 Democrats will respond to the desire of Trump voters for “cruelty” and the need to “hurt” illegals and “brown people” in general.
With the on-screen headline reading “caring for migrant children”, anchor Lester Holt noted that “some of the Democratic candidates spent the hours leading up to tonight's debate visiting a center here in Florida, where over 13,000 migrant children have been placed since March of last year, as outrage grows about conditions inside these facilities.”
