Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday, Commentary Magazine editor Noah Rothman called out the hypocritical panel of Trump-hating pundits for excusing unconstitutional policy proposals, outright lies, and “rank racial agitation” coming from 2020 Democratic presidential candidates like Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris.
Joe Scarborough has come up with what could be the worst campaign slogan in American political history. On today's Morning Joe, making the case for Elizabeth Warren, Scarborough said: "At least she won't inspire mass shootings!" We say, run with it, Liz! Order a million bumper stickers today!
Look at the bright side! Sure, a recession could throw millions of Americans out of work, and shrink retirement portfolios. But an economic downturn would also hurt President Trump in 2020! That was CNN's theme this morning. The 6 am New Day hour led with co-host John Berman trumpeting yesterday's stock market drop. CNN economic analyst Rana Foroohar then said of a recession: "it's here."John Avlon weighed in to crow: "if the economy goes south, [Trump] is in a world of hurt."
With the so-called “inverted yield curve” for bonds creeping up on Wednesday, ABC and NBC sprinted to stoke fears that “a recession could be on the horizon”, as NBC White House correspondent Kristen Welker declared. But over on CBS Evening News, chief financial analyst Jill Schlesinger was telling viewers to “run your life as if this were just any old day.”
On Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show on Monday, the question was whether it would be good political strategy, given President Trump's alleged racism, to accuse the Trump base of being racists for supporting him. Frank Figliuzzi, an Obama-era FBI official and NBC National Security Analyst, said such would be a mistake, because: "if you call Trump followers racist en masse, they simply coalesce around each other and become more defensive and protective of the leader, just as they would in, say, a terrorist organization."
We wouldn't normally evaluate a "fact check" when it lines up with all the available facts. But it can be noteworthy when Democrats are tagged as "Four Pinocchios" False. Both the Washington Post Fact Checker and FactCheck.org flagged Senators and presidential candidates Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren for incorrectly claiming Michael Brown was "murdered" in Ferguson, Missouri by police officer Darren Wilson.
Building what The Atlantic once described as the “biggest political machine you’ve never heard of” paid off big for liberal billionaire and Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer. He announced early on Aug. 13, that he met the 130,000 donor threshold for the September debates. “Just one more qualifying poll stands between us and that stage!” he added. Each candidate must have 2 percent support in four separate national or early state polls. Steyer currently has three, according to CNBC.
Listen to the two-beat sound at the very end of the clip. Reminiscent of the famous "doink-doink" from NBC's" Law & Order," no? Viewers would be forgiven for thinking that the clip [which aired on CNN this morning] was indeed a promo for a TV crime show. Or might it have been an anti-Trump attack ad from the DNC? It's not until the New York Times logo appears at the very end that it's seen to be a commercial for the newspaper, making the explicit commercial pitch ["the truth is worth it"] for an investigative attack on President Trump's finances.
On Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, frequent guest Elie Mystal of AboveTheLaw.com made the kind of statement about a "majority of white people" that would be considered blatantly bigoted or racist if aimed at any other group, as he stated that it is necessary for Democrats to "destroy" whites who support President Donald Trump.
Even though some high-profile experts claim the U.S. is not headed for a recession right now, the liberal news media continued to promote economic pessimism during the summer of 2019.
Despite 3.7 percent (near record-low) unemployment, wage gains, confident consumers and growing economy, liberal journalists obsessed over recession every single day of June and July.
Liberal billionaire and 2020 Democratic candidate Tom Steyer stepped down from a prominent left-wing think tank last month due to his presidential bid, according to CNBC. Steyer was deeply involved with Center for American Progress for at least 9 years. CNBC reported Steyer was director of CAP’s board since 2010 before resigning July 9. Steyer had been distancing himself from “outside entities that could be seen as giving his campaign an advantage,” said CNBC.
On Saturday's CNN Newsroom, during an interview with former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, CNN host Ana Cabrera failed to inform viewers of some very important facts as she discussed the Colorado Democrat's successes in passing gun control in his home state in 2013. As the CNN host asked the Democratic presidential candidate about the issue of how to get at least some Republicans to go along with such measures, she failed to note that violent crime has increased substantially in Colorado every year since the passage of more gun control in 2013.
