There was plenty to pick through on Wednesday’s Hardball, such as topics covered here about how PBS NewsHour’s Yamiche Alcindor implied she was upset with God Bless the USA airing at Trump rallies and the President for not pushing gun control. But there were also meltdowns from Alcindor and her fellow panelists about Trump’s feud with Denmark that included the words “disloyal,” “grenades,” and more accusations of racism and sexism.
Things took a bizarre turn roughly ten minutes into Wednesday’s Hardball and, surprisingly, it wasn’t MSNBC host Chris Matthews. After discussing President Donald Trump’s feud with Denmark, the topic turned to Trump’s proposal to invite Russia back into the G-7 (making it the G-8) again when far-left PBS NewsHour correspondent Yamiche Alcindor appeared to take issue with Lee Greenwood’s God Bless the USA being played at Trump rallies.
In a scathing takedown of anti-Semitic Congresswomen, Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) during an appearance on Monday’s Special Report, The Federalist publisher Ben Domenech unloaded on the duo for their “disgusting display” at a press conference filled with lies.
An explosive debate broke out on Monday’s edition of Cuomo Prime Time focusing on Israel’s decision to bar two Democratic members Congress in “the Squad” from entry because of their support for BDS. While the debate included the usual talking points about President Trump targeting “the Squad” because of their skin color and religion, the conversation went off the rails when CNN political commentator Angela Rye, addressing Republican Strategist Patrick Griffin, identified “the greatest terrorist threat in our country” as “white men who think like you.”
During the controversy surrounding Israel's decision to bar Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar into their country, most of the media focus was on President Trump and his tweets on the subject. The media condemned him for violating the tradition that stated that politics stops at the water's edge. The notion that politics stop's at the water's edge has never been as sacred as the media hyped it up to be and Monday's edition of CNN Newsroom proved just that when they sent Clarissa Ward to Iran for no other purpose than to find some "every day Iranians" who would tell them what they wanted to hear.
Both CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today show on Friday boasted of exclusive interviews with top Iranian officials eager to attack the United States and condemn international sanctions against the terrorism-sponsoring regime. Rather than show their journalists pressing Iran’s leaders on the authoritarian nation’s criminal behavior, the network reports instead offered pure propaganda.
MSNBC anchor and correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin joined MSNBC Live host Ali Velshi on Friday to chat about Israel's decision to Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar into the country and Tlaib turning down a humanitarian exception to visit her grandmother. Throughout the segment, Mohyeldin made multiple eyebrow-raising statements including calling Bernie Sanders a centrist on the issue and insisting that those who support the BDS movement simply have different tactics for achieving peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians.
CNN's John King began his Inside Politics program on Thursday by lamenting Israel's refusal to admit leftist Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar as "unprecedented" and contrary to democratic ideals.
Citing an itinerary that proved they were out to “deny Israel’s legitimacy”, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Thursday that anti-Semitic U.S. Representatives Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashia Tlaib (D-MI) were barred from entering the country. Of course, the liberal media had an absolute meltdown with the flagship evening programs of ABC, CBS, and NBC rushing to the Congresswomen’s defense, while covering up their deep-seated anti-Semitic worldviews.
When it comes to guns, the United States really needs to take lessons from the rest of the world. From enlightened, low-crime countries. You know: like Mexico. And Venezuela. That was the thrust of a hand-wringing CNN segment this morning. Narrated by Brit CNN correspondent Nick Paton Walsh, the chyron set the tone: "World Puzzled as U.S. Grapples with Latest Mass Shootings."
The folks over at MSNBC have created a "heads I win, tails you lose" approach to President Trump and Republican policy towards Russia. The same network that has come up with "Moscow Mitch" for Republicans being allegedly too soft on Russia now claims Trump is giving Vladimir Putin "a gift" by withdrawing from the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, because Russia refuses to come back into compliance.
The Trump administration made positive headlines on Wednesday after Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar announced the United States was looking at allowing FDA-approved drugs to be imported from foreign counties, such as Canada, where they were cheaper. Despite previously decrying the skyrocketing price of prescription drug costs, that evening, CBS Evening News chose to ignore that major proposal to aid struggling American families and instead hyped a new statue in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
