Late Tuesday night, MSNBC’s post-debate panel reacted to the 2020 Democratic primary hubbub and, while later spinning that no one had a bad debate, they initially knocked Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as both “annoyed” and “petulant” for being unable to handle incoming attacks as the frontrunner, but swooned over Pete Buttigieg being the second coming of Barack Obama.
All’s well does not end well for Joe Biden, especially in Tuesday’s Democratic Debate in which his once cemented front runner status seemed to be superseded by Senator Elizabeth Warren. No one was quicker to point out this predicted chain of events than Trevor Noah and his guest CBS correspondent Alex Wagner on The Daily Show following the debate.
CNN on Tuesday night hammered the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates from the left, demanding to know exactly how they plan on “stopping” pro-life states who dare to pass laws restricting abortion. Co-debate moderator Erin Burnett also promoted the packing of the Supreme Court.
Roughly halfway through the second hour of CNN’s Tuesday night Democratic presidential debate, moderator Anderson Cooper dove into the obligatory questions about enacting strict and intrusive gun control measures. This time, nearly all the questions pertained to probing the candidates on their support for mandatory gun confiscation. And if not, why not?
Did CNN offer an assist to far-left Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer on Tuesday? During the presidential debate, a CNN graphic described Steyer with the somewhat toxic description of “former hedge fund manager.” It’s not a popular term. For example, the website Efinancialcareers offered this headline: “Why only the worst people tend to work for new hedge funds.” So, it’s interesting that for the rest of the debate the graphic for Steyer was changed to “businessman.” Here’s the before and after graphics:
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) took a giant whack at the liberal media during Tuesday night’s 2020 Democratic debate, taking issue with debate partners CNN and The New York Times as being overly hostile due to her foreign policy views. And to make things even more interesting, she specifically slammed CNN political commentator Bakari Sellers (without naming him).
CNN devoted the first 20 minutes of the 2020 Democratic primary debate to impeachment and actually asked the candidates some tough questions on whether the process makes any sense. Yet, moderator Anderson Cooper made sure to exonerate the Bidens, telling Joe Biden that your son has been “falsely accused” and there’s “no evidence” of any wrongdoing. Cooper began by repeating Democratic talking points.
On Monday’s edition of the noontime Inside Politics program on CNN, AP Washington Bureau Chief Julie Pace used an odd word to describe Hunter Biden's exploitation of his father's last name to make money in foreign countries like Ukraine and China. She called it “confusing.”
On The View Tuesday, in the absence of co-host Joy Behar, it was Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny Hostin’s turns to make ridiculous statements. While discussing Hunter Biden’s disastrous interview on ABC this morning, Hostin tried to make the case that Biden was actually qualified for the lucrative Ukraine gas company position, and it wasn’t a result of his father’s influence.On the other hand, Whoopi argued that Democrats needed to focus on the economy, instead in tonight’s debate, and convince Americans how they’re going to help lower their taxes. Sounds like Whoopi needs to switch parties.
ABC News foreign correspondent Ian Pannell wasted little time dispensing with straight-forward reportage before resorting to a damning conclusion while appearing on This Week with George Stephanopoulos yesterday to discuss rapidly changing conditions in Syria. Pannell blamed President Trump for Turkey's invasion of northern Syria to take on the Kurds, claiming that Trump essentially gave Turkish President Recep Erdogan a green light for the attack. With the ink hardly dry on Trump's decision, Pannel is already denigrating it as sheer folly.
During a panel discussion about the 2020 campaign on Tuesday’s CBS This Morning, hosts and political analysts agreed that Hunter Biden’s interview with ABC News wasn’t doing his father’s presidential candidacy any favors and might even give President Trump more ammunition against Joe Biden.
Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, gave an exclusive interview to ABC’s Amy Robach Tuesday, excerpts of which were shown on Good Morning America. Robach surprisingly held Biden’s feet to the fire over his cushy job with a Ukranian gas company while his father was Vice President, for a large part of the interview. However, that dissolved into a gooey sympathy piece about how mean President Trump was hurting Biden’s sobriety, finally culminating with Biden crying on camera about how much he loved America.
