When it became clear that Democratic and liberal media darlings Stacey Abrams and Andrew Gillum were likely to lose their respective races in Georgia and Florida, senior White House correspondent Cecilia Vega and Nightline co-host Byron Pitts sought to blame racism for people not electing them.
Despite the eventual projections that Democrats would retake the House of Representatives on Tuesday night, NBC News was still uneasy, admitting that “Donald Trump and his followers are still intact” and “there is not a blue tsunami” that could be because of the unpopularity of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
With vote totals flooding in early in the night, it was painfully obvious to the liberal media that the so-called “blue wave” they’ve been hyping for a year crashed against red breakers. It was early in the nine o’clock hour when CNN anchor Jake Tapper admitted “what's going on here tonight, this is not a blue wave. This is not a wave that is knocking out all sorts of Republican incumbents.”
Within moments of the broadcast networks coming on the air Tuesday night with their midterm coverage, ABC, CBS, and NBC had the long knives out for Republicans, condemning their “nativist,” “white-hot rhetoric” creating “one of the most divisive midterms in our lifetime” that was marred by “hate, violence and tragedy.”
As the first polls began the close, liberal broadcast networks ABC and NBC were touting how confident the Democrats appeared despite lingering worries from 2016. As they were nearing the end of their political coverage for World News Tonight, ABC anchor David Muir noted: “the Democrats are projecting confidence as well, as you might expect.”
Tuesday on ABC’s The View, the co-hosts talked about the midterm elections today and President Trump’s statement in an interview Monday that he “regrets” his tone hasn’t been softer. While the hosts bashed the remark as an inauthentic way to reach women voters, co-host Joy Behar turned her nose up at women who supported Trump, characterizing them as stupid.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough says that not judging friends according to their vote is "a little harder to do in 2018." Scarborough had tweeted that those voting for "Trump," [i.e., Republicans] are voting for "lies" and "racism."
With roughly 24 hours until polls closed for the midterm elections, the liberal broadcast networks were out in force Monday evening as they pleaded with viewers to vote for Democratic candidates. From touting Democratic Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill as a moderate to blasting Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp for accusing Democrats of hacking to fantasizing about all the investigations of President Trump the Democrats would start, the liberal networks were all hands on deck.
MSNBC anchor Katy Tur sat down with a liberal evangelical pastor and a conservative evangelical activist who supports President Trump on MSNBC Live Monday afternoon to talk about how Trump is doing with evangelical voters these midterms. While Tur let her liberal guest talk at length about how un-Christian Trump is, she berated her conservative guest, and even claimed that abortion was a lesser evil than the former border policy.
To put it simply, CNN is lying to its viewers whenever folks like Ana Navarro are presented as a “Republican strategist.” The Jeffrey Zucker-led circus did just that on Monday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom as the panel giggled and marveled at Navarro’s turn to the left offering childish insults about Republicans and vote for Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum.
With the election being less than 48 hours away, the deranged Hollywood lefties on Twitter are becoming more desperate. Their posts have been more dire and it seems that many of them have relinquished reason altogether, brandishing arguments such as Trump “is a mean, mean man,” and that voting Republican is the “opposite” of what Jesus would do.
The View began their show Monday by addressing the Saturday Night Live controversy where comedian Pete Davidson mocked a wounded veteran who also happened to be a Republican running in an upcoming midterm election. While even some of the liberal hosts at The View’s table said Davidson needed to apologize for the rude remark, co-host Joy Behar repeatedly defended the show and comedian, saying it was normal for the comedic show to make offensive jokes, (not noting that most of their “humor” is directed at Republicans.)
