Morning Joe began the week reveling in President Trump's problems, with Donny Deutsch saying that the President's predicament is just "the tip of the iceberg" and insisting more than once that Trump will pay "for the rest of his life."
CBS’s Madam Secretary is closing in on its 100th episode, so it’s bound to get crazier and crazier from here on out. Case in point, the latest episode reignites “the war on fake news” with more Russia conspiracies. Are there any other kinds anymore?
On CNN's New Day on Sunday, Michael Moore, a former Obama-appointed U.S. and Democrat state senator in Georgia, boasted: "you're hearing sort of the death rattle of this presidency, of this administration. I don't know that we need to call the undertaker yet, but it's certainly time to pick out the cemetery."
To offer a different interpretation, reader WKRP took the view that McQuade was not suggesting that President Trump be stripped of his citizenship, but that he be removed from office if he obtained the presidency via fraud. If indeed that's what McQuade meant, she found a roundabout means of saying so. But this writer acknowledges this as a plausible alternative interpretation of her remark.
Participating in a panel discussion for the Recode Decode podcast with fellow NBC News colleagues Chuck Todd and Hallie Jackson, on Wednesday, Andrea Mitchell told host Kara Swisher that two of the reasons for Hillary Clinton’s defeat in the 2016 presidential election were “gaslighting” from the Trump campaign and “the unfairness of the media.”
We knew that the son of liberal news anchor Murphy Brown on CBS’s Murphy Brown would probably not last too long in his new job with a conservative news network. He didn’t. In the episode airing December 6 titled “The Wheels On the Dog Go Round and Round,” Avery Brown quit the show's version of Fox News in a righteous huff, railing against them "shilling for this current administration" and feeding the audience "BS."
It did not take long after the death of Former President George H.W. Bush, who died as the longest-lived President in American history, for the media to begin using his death to attack President Trump or even the late former President himself. During Saturday’s edition of Today, NBC’s Peter Alexander made sure to take shots at President Trump as he read aloud a tweet from the President expressing his condolences.
Years have passed but at long last, Univision appears eager to cover an email scandal that reverberates at the highest levels of government. And all it took was for there to be a Trump attached to it. On Univision's weekly public affairs show, Al Punto, Republican analyst Adolfo Franco does a fine job of redirecting any attempt to spin the Clinton e-mail scandal as being only about the use of personal -mails in the conduct of official government business.
On Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch says that he has spoken with Michael Cohen "many times" in recent days. Deutsch says that Cohen now feels that in light of his testimony and admission of having lied about the duration of his contacts with Russians regarding a possible Trump real estate deal, he is "on the right side of things," and can "stick his chest out."
It’s not every day that I hear an actor playing a journalist recite a line that compares covering presidential rallies to covering Libya but this is 2018 and it’s Trump’s America. In the November 29 episode of CBS’s Murphy Brown, reporter Frank Fontana is attacked at a Trump rally and the blame falls on President Trump saying the press delivers fake news and is the enemy of the people.
Apparently “journalism” to The Washington Post now amounts to diagnosing mental illnesses of voting populations they don’t like by looking at their google searches. The paper published an article November 29 that is so mockable it’s surprising it's not satire, with the headline reading, “How Donald Trump appeals to men secretly insecure about their manhood.”
Boxers or briefs? In the case of former Hillary Clinton adviser Philippe Reines the question should be shorts or underpants? One just has to know in the wake of his meltdown Tuesday following his appearance on Trish Regan Primetime when he went berserk sans pants in the hallway of the Fox News studio.
