Liberals & Democrats
Minutes after President Trump declared a national emergency at the U.S. southern border on Friday, MSNBC congressional correspondent Garrett Haake touted Democrats scrambling to release “statements and tweets about how ridiculous they found that entire press conference.” Later in afternoon, the reporter even eagerly predicted that liberal lawmakers would be able exploit the deaths of military service members to denounce the executive action.
Hollywood will jump at any opportunity to throw a middle finger at conservative policies, especially at immigration reform. Doubling down on it’s message of “Fuck The Wall,” the music industry threw three Grammy awards at a music album featuring the vocal stylings of 53 undocumented immigrants. Of course Billboard Music reported on it with pride.
After news broke Thursday afternoon that the Democratic National Committee decided that the first primary debate of the 2020 presidential race would be held in June and hosted by NBC News, giddy MSNBC hosts went on air to express their excitement for the event. Given the softball treatment the network has routinely given Democratic candidates, DNC Chair Tom Perez even appeared on the liberal cable channel to express his enthusiasm.
On Thursday the political world went, predictably, into a tailspin at the announcement that President Donald Trump would declare a national emergency over the crisis at the southern border. For progressives this is tantamount to a tyrant finally bending our fragile democracy to his will.
On Morning Joe, discussing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's opposition to Amazon building an HQ in NYC, which ultimately contributed to Amazon's decision not to proceed, Donny Deutsch describes Ocasio-Cortez as "extremely dangerous," saying she will "hand the presidency back to Donald Trump."
In what world are vaccines comparable to abortions? Vaccines save lives, prevent horrible diseases and are recommended for everyone, while abortions take lives, cause horrible pain and are supposed to not be wanted by anyone. Only to an extreme, pro-abortion movement steeped in the racist eugenics history of Planned Parenthood and its founder Margaret Sanger are abortions like vaccines, inoculating society from the scourge of the spread of more poor and minority babies being born.
Valentine’s Day is supposed to be a day about love, but pro-abortion activists have managed twisted it into a celebration of the ugly, hateful act of abortion.
Following Tuesday’s devastating scoop for the liberal media that the Senate Intelligence Committee had not found evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, Wednesday’s Hardball celebrated a federal judge’s ruling that Paul Manafort had lied about his contacts with pro-Putin individuals as a sign that there was indeed “collusion” and, therefore, the President’s in trouble.
The NRA may have just discovered the best way to trigger far lefties this Valentines Day, literally. Alt-left media outfit The Daily Beast put on its best righteous indignation face on Thursday by decrying the National Rifle Association’s romantic holiday marketing, which consisted in advertising the AR-15 as a “crowning jewel — just like your special lady.”
ABC News's political director Rick Klein appeared briefly on The View Thursday to talk about the controversies surrounding freshman Democrats and to tout the Green New Deal proposed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. While co-host Abby Huntsman expressed concern that Democrats were veering too far left, Klein and fellow co-host Joy Behar shut her down, claiming that most Americans supported Democrats’ radical and infeasible policy proposals.
It’s been a week since Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Edward Markey, D-Mass., introduced a “Green New Deal” resolution promising massive government spending and no way to pay for it.
The president and many others mocked it. Liberal presidential candidates endorsed it. An Ocasio-Cortez policy adviser denied to Fox News that the plan promised “economic security for people ‘unwilling to work.’” For the record, it did. Yet, the evening news shows chose not to report on the proposal that some estimated could cost $6.6 trillion a year, likely more.
In a wild Hardball on Wednesday, MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews spent the latter portion of the program defending the Green New Deal, expressing dismay at Republicans for “mak[ing] fun of” the proposal seeking to address the dangers “we're facing as a species” because of climate change, and defending murderous Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro because National Security Adviser John Bolton isn’t a fan.
