On Tuesday morning, FNC continued to update viewers on the case of an illegal immigrant from Haiti, Wisner Desmaret, with a past criminal record who murdered a Florida police officer after managing to avoid deportation for years. The other networks continued to ignore the story even as ABC and CBS ran full reports on Tuesday morning on the case of Thurman Blevins, who was killed recently by Minneapolis police.
After Fort Myers police officer Adam Jobbers-Miller passed away over the weekend because of injuries sustained when he was shot on duty a week earlier, FNC's Fox and Friends ran updates on the sad news on both Sunday and Monday morning as the other networks ignored the story. FNC also informed viewers that the killer, Wisner Desmaret, is an illegal immigrant with a previous criminal record who was never deported.
On Tuesday's All In show, MSNBC viewers got to see the latest example of the liberal news network not only conflating legal asylum seekers with those who cross the border illegally and only seek asylum after they are apprehended, but also of putting all the blame on the Donald Trump administration for actions that were also taken by the Barack Obama administration.
WASHINGTON — Last week the headlines should have abounded with the year's good news. It was the economy: gross domestic product was up some 3 percent and, for the last quarter, nearly 4 percent; unemployment was down to a 17-year low, with black unemployment at the lowest level since such statistics were compiled. The stock market was soaring, up some 40 percent since Donald Trump was elected, and inflation was low.
The front of the National section in the New York Times took full advantage of President Trump’s vulgar comment about life in Haiti to accuse him of racism, felicitously timed to appear on Martin Luther King Day. Reporter Sabrina Tavernise’s full-page article was headlined “In Trump’s Remarks, Black Churches See a Nation Backsliding.”
After nearly three hours of hyperventilating about President Trump’s purported comments last Thursday describing Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries as “shitholes,” Monday’s Morning Joe brought on author and NBC Political Analyst Anand Giridharadas to discuss Trump’s “radical,” “reactionary,” and “racist” comments. Predictably, Giridharadas did not have many kind words for the President, declaring that it was, in fact, America that was being turned into the “real s-hole” by Trump.
On Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, as frequent guest Jennifer Rubin was finally being credited as an "MSNBC political analyst," the alleged "conservative" Washington Post columnist demonstrated that she will continue to use her new MSNBC contributor status to deliver liberal analysis as she demonized a Republican guest by asking her if she is an "inhumane beast" who was "raised by wolves."
'When they go low, we go lower' must have been the mantra for Friday’s Hardball as host Chris Matthews and his opening set of guests denounced Republicans as “North Korean infantry men” led by “racist” President Trump, “sniveling and supine” Ben Carson, “decorative” African-Americans, and “pathetic” House Speaker Paul Ryan.
On the Thursday edition of MSNBC's All In, The Root's politics editor and MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson demonstrated how difficult it is for liberal commentators to settle for giving sober criticism and avoid going into over the top hysterics when when reacting to President Donald Trump making incendiary comments that are actually worthy of rebuke. During a discussion of Trump reportedly deriding Haiti and other Third World nations as "shithole" countries, Johnson declared that the President is both an "enemy" to and a "clear and present danger to non-white people in America." He also warned that Trump is a "terrorist sympathizer" that Democrats should not "negotiate" with whose policies would make the U.S. "in danger as a sovereign nation."
On Thursday night, ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel continued his new role as a senior propagandist for the Democratic Party, this time accusing the President of being a racist.
On Thursday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of President Donald Trump reportedly using incendiary language to refer to Haiti and other Third World countries, CNN presidential historian Douglas Brinkley declared that Trump is "the most racist President since Woodrow Wilson," and suggested he might even be worse.
Editor's note: This post contains explicit language. At the top of his Thursday monologue on The Late Show, far-left comedian Stephen Colbert appeared to insinuate that African countries, El Salvador, and Haiti aren’t “shithole countries” as alleged by President Trump but the United States of America is the real “shithole” since Trump’s our President.
