The Deep State and liberal media had quite the night on Thursday in light of a New York Times report that “Russia was interfering in the 2020 campaign to try to get President Trump re-elected.” In the first 27 minutes of MSNBC’s Hardball, the narrative was that, without citing direct evidence, President Trump was a “wannabe dictator” “collaborating with the Soviets” to carry out “Russian attacks on our democracy” with an assist from “a complicit, compliant, lick-spittle Republican Congress” acting like “hosts of Russia Today.”
On Sunday's State of the Union show on CNN, as fill-in host Dana Bash interviewed Democratic presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar, instead of pressing her on whether she really is a "moderate" as many journalists have described her, the CNN host hit her from the left on whether she was too tough on criminals as a prosecutor, and invited her be critical of a couple of her Democratic opponents and the Trump administration.
CNN showcased for all to see Thursday afternoon its undisputed position as leader of the opposition party and hate for President Trump, lashing out at the post-impeachment speech as an “angry,” “dark,” “disturbing,” “mean-spirited,” “poisonous,” “spiteful,” and “vindictive” “set of remarks” by a man in “a dark place” and “deep psychological distress.”
With rare exceptions, the litany of liberal journalists, lefty analysts, and former Obama officials have free rein on CNN to pontificate without pushback. Unfortunately for legal analysts Preet Bharara and Jeffrey Toobin on Friday after the Senate impeachment trial’s witness vote, senior political commentator and former Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) was on set to push back after they called the vote “an absolute travesty,” “a sham,” “a shame” and a departure from “common sense.”
While wrapping up CBS News special coverage of the Senate impeachment trial Friday afternoon, Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell reported that violent threats were being made against several schools in the state of Maine as a sick attempt to pressure Republican Senator Susan Collins to convict President Trump. Amazingly, the anchor cited “anger on both sides” of the political divide while mentioning the clearly one-sided threats.
Before Friday’s session of the Senate impeachment trial, MSNBC’s hatred was in full display for those who wouldn’t be voting and thinking the way they’ve demanded, lobbing one firebomb after another while simultaneously decrying the lack of bipartisanship and civility.
Acting out of sheer desperation Friday morning, while anchoring MSNBC special coverage of the Senate impeachment trial, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd attempted to argue there was a “risk” for Democrats “folding too early” ahead of President Trump’s expected acquittal. Later in the hour, he seemed resigned to the fact that the “talk radio wing” of the Republican Party had “won” the day.
In the moments after Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) announced late Thursday that he would not support witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial, MSNBC rhetorically curled up in the fetal position over the “Jim Crow” and “submissive” GOP engaging in a “cover up” and “an extraordinary act of self-abasement” that’s left America in “a very scary moment.”
Less than an hour after CNN’s Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer conceded Thursday that “Democrats look like they’re in trouble,” the Erin Burnett OutFront panel lambasted CNN’s beloved 2020 Democrat and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for a question that many deemed over the line about the legitimacy of the Supreme Court and Chief Justice John Roberts.
As the Senate impeachment trial went to a break during the 3:00 p.m. ET hour Wednesday afternoon, anchors of NBC News special coverage immediately went to work blasting the arguments from President Trump’s defense team as “dubious,” “legalizing Watergate,” and asserting “absolute power.”
While discussing the possibility of former National Security Advisor John Bolton testifying in the Senate impeachment trial, during MSNBC’s special coverage Wednesday morning, anchor Chuck Todd eagerly offered the ex Trump aide the “full hour” of Sunday’s Meet the Press to air accusations against the President.
During NBC News live special coverage of the Senate impeachment trial on Tuesday, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd urged Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to call President Trump as a witness and get him “under oath on this.”
