Poor Paul Krugman. He’s been reduced to using zombie metaphors to illustrate his disdain for certain “centrist” Democratic presidential candidates.
While ABC and CBS were largely putting aside the many controversies of former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to tout his rapid rise in the polls Tuesday, Leta Hong Fincher, the wife of a former award-winning Bloomberg News reporter was busy reminding the public of how Bloomberg censors his reporters who cover China and threatens those that don’t submit.
Seemingly finished with reporting Tuesday on the alleged racism and sexism controversies of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, ABC’s World News Tonight and the CBS Evening News took to touting his rise in the polls and subsequent qualification for the Democratic debate in Nevada. It had CBS anchor Norah O’Donnell marveling at how Bloomberg's “surge” in the polls puts him in “second place” nationally and “puts him over the top” to get on the stage.
On Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show, Chris Matthews urges Bernie Sanders's primary opponents to "punch" at him, and tell him, "you're full of it." He warns that with Sanders as their candidate, Democrats could lose 49 states, as they did in 1972 with far-left George McGovern.
On Tuesday afternoon, MSNBC anchor Chris Jansing decided to check in with one of her favorite Democratic activist groups as she looked ahead to the 2020 general election. Having promoted the group Swing Left leading up to the 2018 midterms, Jansing touted how the organization was already working to “build a war chest and a volunteer infrastructure” to defeat President Trump in November.
Two of the hosts of The View have now admitted that they don’t care what comes out against 2020 Democrats as long as they can beat Donald Trump. On Tuesday’s show, co-host Whoopi Goldberg became irritated as Meghan McCain shared Michael Bloomberg’s past sexist comments, announcing that none of that mattered to her because Trump hasn’t apologized for his own past crass comments about women. This comes on the heels of her co-host Joy Behar, dismissing Bloomberg’s problems with racism on Friday’s show, declaring Republicans were the “most racist.”
Despite the fact that Joe Scarborough has left the Republican Party and is cheerleading for any Democrat to win in 2020, he still occasionally pretends that his advice is to help his former party, not just ensure an endless Democratic majority. Scarborough on Tuesday talked to former Barack Obama senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer and promoted his new book.
MSNBC liberals scolded their Never-Trump peer Tuesday, for labeling Bernie Sanders’ message as, “free stuff.” On MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle this morning, ex-Republican Steve Schmidt argued with Princeton professor Eddie Glaude over Sanders’ radical record and appeal with Democrat and independent voters. Finally, host Stephanie Ruhle jumped in to shush Schmidt for calling out Sanders’ empty promises.
Will debate moderator Chuck Todd mess up another debate with his obnoxious attitude and lefty question? The following are just a few examples of debate moderator Chuck Todd’s most liberal moments since Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, as culled from the MRC’s archives.
No wonder liberal billionaire 2020 candidate Michael Bloomberg does not want his own news outlet investigating him. They might have to do journalism and risk exposing where his money has been going all these years. The liberal New York Times chose to do some actual journalism by digging up records on Bloomberg’s enormous spending between 1977 and 2019 in a report Feb. 15. Bloomberg spent "at least" a whopping $10 billion split between charitable and political causes. Some of those causes included: abortion, climate change and gun control.
Presidents Day offered a couple Trump-deranged lefties the perfect opportunity to show off their talent for pettiness. Instead of focusing on the past presidents celebrated by the federal holiday -- like George Washington -- Trump haters like Kathy Griffin and Rob Reiner made the day about making fun of President Donald Trump on Twitter. The irony is, much of lefty Twitter tried to accuse the President of making the day about himself.
