On Wednesday's New Day on CNN, the show was fixated on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell commenting last night that he would work to fill a hypothetical U.S. Supreme Court vacancy if one occurred in 2020, as hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota brought up the issue repeatedly across all three hours of the show. Additionally, no conservative commentators were included in the panel discussions even while several liberal contributors including Joe Lockhart, John Avlon, and Catherine Rampell were allowed to give their negative commentary against McConnell.
In a clip that had gone viral on Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell humorously declared that he would indeed fill a Supreme Court vacancy if one were to become available during the 2020 election. Pouncing on the “hypocrisy,” CNN host Chris Cuomo angrily proclaimed the elder statesman to be the “poster child” for deceitfulness and “all things wrong with politics.”
On Morning Joe, after saying that he understands that it doesn't make "political sense" to impeach President Trump, Joe Scarborough calls for the impeachment of Attorney General William Barr, calling him Trump's "lackey" and "stooge."
Former Vice President Joe Biden was on The View Friday where he was pressed by the hosts, from the left, over his treatment of Anita Hill during the Clarence Thomas hearings. The hosts begged him to apologize to Hill, and the women who accused him of inappropriate touching and kissing. Considering these are the two biggest issues facing his presidential campaign so far, you would think he’d have his answers more prepared. Still, Biden struggled to answer each question as he tried to defend his behavior instead of apologizing.
Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are accusing President Trump and Attorney General William Barr of endangering the lives of Trump opponents, including Scarborough himself. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough and Brzezinski expressed outrage that, by failing to charge Coast Guardsman Christopher Hasson with terrorism, they made him eligible for release on bail on lesser charges. Said Scarborough: "Barr will not charge this terrorist with acts of terrorism or a plot to actually kill people who run America's government, I guess because they don't support Donald Trump . . . I guess Barr doesn't think you're a terrorist if you try to kill people that don't support Donald Trump."
The liberal media launched an offensive against both of President Donald Trump’s selections for the Federal Reserve board of governors.
The media have outdone themselves slinging mud at the “controversial” and “unqualified” picks of economics writer and Club for Growth founder Stephen Moore and millionaire businessman, former CEO and former presidential candidate Herman Cain. Cain also served as a director for the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. Directors provide “insight on current and emerging issues” in the business community.
CNN legal analyst says that "for the rest of her life," Kirstjen Nielsen, who is resigning as Homeland Security Secretary, will "get what she deserves" for having implemented family-separation policies and for having "put children in cages."
On CNN's New Day Sunday, co-hosts Christi Paul and Victor Blackwell devoted a segment to interviewing the producers of the liberal propaganda film, Rigged: The Voter Suppression Playbook, which accuses Republicans of engaging in "voter suppression" against minorities to hurt Democrats. The two hosts also adopted the loaded term "voter suppression" and repeatedly employed it during the segment as if it were neutral, proper terminology.
On Morning Joe, Mike Barnicle dismisses the murder fantasy Beto O'Rourke wrote as a teenager in which he described enjoying killing two children with his car. "He was 16!! I mean, come on!!", said Barnicle. But during Brett Kavanaugh's SCOTUS confirmation hearings, Barnicle passionately argued that Kavanaugh's accusers had to be believed.
A Senate Armed Services Committee hearing took an unexpected turn Wednesday when Arizona Senator Martha McSally announced that she was raped by a senior officer during her time in the Air Force. Not surprisingly, two liberal CNN guests on Wednesday’s The Lead used McSally’s testimony as an excuse to attack President Trump and even McSally herself.
Court documents show that Bill Clinton took at least 26 trips on convicted sex-offender Jeffrey Epstein's notorious "Lolita Express" party plane. There's no indication that Donald Trump ever did. But in a segment on Epstein on her MSNBC show today, Joy Reid managed to refer to President Trump six times, accompanied by extended photo displays of Trump in Epstein's company. Number of times Reid mentioned Lolita Express frequent flyer Clinton? A New York bagel, of course.
The Morning Joe panel devotes a segment to looking/hoping for signs of a break from President Trump by congressional Republicans. New York Times Washington bureau chief Elisabeth Bumiller encapsulates the sentiment: "We're always looking for signs of a break with Republicans on the Hill—a public break—from Trump."
