On Sunday's Velshi show, MSNBC host Ali Velshi joined left-wing activist Reverend William Barber in complaining that taxes on the wealthy aren't higher, and dismissed the benefits to society contributed by the wealthy. He also invoked Marie Antoinette against the Trump administration over its handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
It looks like one big-name businessman isn’t allowing the coronavirus to dim his hopes on America’s economic strength. The Hillary Clinton supporter, billionaire Shark Tank star and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban stated in an economic-based interview on a Fox News podcast (Fox News Rundown ) that “We've had a taste of socialism right now ... giving money and redistributing wealth ... that's okay.” But Cuban didn’t put his stock in socialism:
This week, President Donald Trump began openly considering at what point the American government ought to take steps to reopen the American economy. He explained: "Our country wasn't built to be shut down. America will again and soon be open for business," suggesting that the timeline will be weeks instead of months.
MSNBC’s on-air talent just cannot seem to help themselves. MSNBC host of All In Chris Hayes sent out a flippant tweet in response to reports that the Trump administration will be asking Congress for “more than $800 billion in economic stimulus: $500 bil in payroll tax cut, $250 bil in Small Business Association loans, $58 billion for the airlines, and a smattering of other items." Hayes tweeted, “BREAKING: We can, of course, afford a Green New Deal. That’s been true all along.”
When the economy gets you down, just throw truckloads of taxpayer cash at it. At least, that’s what MSNBC Anchor Chris Hayes says Congress should do. Hayes sent out his policy prescription on Twitter in the early morning of March 13: “I increasingly convinced we need Congress to pass a trillion dollar stimulus in the next week, focused on people not industry bailouts. Probably best just direct cash.”
Liberal billionaire Warren Buffett, who’s been fairly quiet this election cycle, took to CNBC to weigh in on the Democratic primary races. As it turns out, even The Billion-Dollar King of Abortion found self-proclaimed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) too left-wing.
Remember the CNN motto "Facts First"? On Tuesday's The Lead with Jake Tapper, during a panel discussion of Bernie Sanders vs. Michael Bloomberg, no one corrected far-left guest Mehdi Hasan of al-Jazeera America when he bolstered Sanders by wrongly claiming Bloomberg was a Republican "for many, many years until 2018."
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.
Maryland Sen. Chris Van Hollen joined MSNBC Live host Ali Velshi on Monday to talk about President Trump's proposed budget, but instead of interviewing Van Hollen, Velshi decided to turn the segment into a Democratic messaging meeting. The biggest deficits in the last 25 years have been from "wars and tax cuts."
Consumer confidence is the highest its been in nearly 20 years. And yet, a recent MRC analysis showed that liberal media networks only gave President Donald Trump’s economy less than one percent coverage on their evening newscasts over a period of 100 days.
A new Media Research Center analysis found that the three major network evening newscasts only gave President Donald Trump’s booming economy and U.S. trade nine minutes of coverage since the House Democrats’ impeachment push began on September 24, 2019.
In the midst of chasing down impeachment Tuesday, House Democrats and Republicans agreed to a truly massive $1.4 trillion spending deal that would shove the country’s yearly deficit to over $1 trillion. With the new out of control spending expected to be signed by President Trump and the national debt already over $23 trillion, news of the deal went unreported during the evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC.
