It’s no question MSNBC has been begging for President Donald Trump’s impeachment. So, how does MSNBC legal analyst Jill Wine-Banks handle the issue of impeachment? By giving money to a Democratic Party House member who would later vote for impeachment.
On Wednesday's New Day, CNN analyst Michael Smerconish suggested Republicans may be unhappily surprised if they called Hunter Biden as a witness in the Senate impeachment trial, because there's "this caricature that has been created of Hunter Biden being a very troubled and ill-equipped individual," but he graduated from Yale Law and "comported himself well" in a softball interview with ABC News, so "It's possible he comes off as credible."
Hollywood, the land where political variance from liberal doctrine is viewed as nothing short of heresy. When a pseudo-celebrity utilizes their moment in the spotlight to make a leftist decree, you can bet it is on a late-night program. This is precisely what transpired on Tuesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live with actress Ilana Glazer.
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was the latest 2020 Democrat candidate to appear on Wednesday’s The View. The hosts gave him a warm welcome, fawning over his decision to self-fund his campaign and giggling over his strange tweets during last night’s debate. In fact, nearly all the criticism Bloomberg faced from the hosts was about not being liberal enough. Yet co-host Meghan McCain did get one question in about his party’s problem with anti-Semitism.
On Wednesday, the crew of MSNBC’s Morning Joe all agreed that Tuesday night’s Democratic debate was a “dull” and “lifeless” event in which “nobody looked good.” According to co-host Joe Scarborough, the only thing the debate accomplished was to show the 2020 contenders “are still not ready for prime time.”
The most abused adjective in political reporting is the label “centrist.” It should tell you everything about the politician. Unfortunately it tells us far more about those applying the label. Reporters call Democrats "centrist" when they have an American Conservative Union score of five percent. This tells you where journalists are located on the political spectrum. It's not in the "mainstream."
When MSNBC was able to put aside late Tuesday into early Wednesday their disdain for a lack of focus on the Lev Parnas documents in Tuesday’s 2020 Democratic debate, they settled on a narrative that Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA) put on a “sparky” and “very sharp” performance with the anonymously-sourced CNN story serving as an “epiphany.” It wasn’t all fun and games as former Obama official David Plouffe warned that, despite all this, Donald Trump will be “really hard” to beat since he will “run a great campaign” in 2020.
Moments before midnight, following their Democratic presidential debate, CNN chief political correspondent Dana Bash and political director David Chalian boasted that former Vice President Joe Biden had what Democrats called the “chicken soup appeal.” According to them, this special appeal manifested in Biden’s ability to consistently remain the frontrunner and possibly be the cure for the illness, which was supposedly President Trump.
Late Tuesday, MSNBC made sure to express their anger and disappointment with not only CNN, the Des Moines Register, and the moderators, but all six 2020 Democratic presidential candidates for skipping over newly-released impeached documents from Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas and refusing to make it the focus of the debate. Awhile into the airing of grievances, lyin’ Brian Williams interjected to rule that it wasn’t meant to be a slight. But like he did when lying about his reporting on Iraq and Hurricane Katrina, his claim didn’t hold water.
While CNN’s panels of partisan analysts and journalists had their thoughts on which Democratic candidates did well in their debate, co-host Chris Cuomo stated it best when he deduced that “the consensus, though, is that this was not the type of night of ambition we expected.” One analyst was so distraught he declared he was “dispirited.” Not what the Democratic National Committee wanted to hear going into the Iowa caucuses.
Just over an hour prior to Tuesday’s latest 2020 Democratic presidential debate, longtime Democrat and former Clinton official James Carville appeared on MSNBC’s Hardball to unspool his latest takes of lunacy. This time, he insisted that “Trumpism is the greatest threat this country has faced since the fall of communism” and Republicans cannot ever be trusted to “save the United States.”
Despite the fact, there was no evidence that Russian meddling in the 2016 election had any influence on the result, the evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC warned they were at it again with a hack of the Ukrainian energy company that hired Hunter Biden. In the course of their fear-mongering reports, the networks suggested Russia was working on behalf of Trump, was the reason he got elected, and in one case insinuated Trump may have been working with the Russians. All of which were unfounded conspiracy theories.
