Morning Joe introduces Lauren Leader as the founder of a "non-partisan" organization. She proceeds to call on the military to disobey Commander-in-Chief Trump's orders on protecting the border from illegal entry.
NCIS: Los Angeles has been pretty quiet politically lately--that is until tonight’s episode in which we could practically hear them shout from the rooftops.
The Department of Veterans Affairs has been a dysfunctional mess for decades and thus taking place over multiple presidencies. The latest example of the VA’s dysfunction has been an apparent “computer glitch” that resulted in veterans not receiving their G.I. Bill benefits. But facts be damned (like most nights) to CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Thursday night’s Prime Time as he blamed all the VA’s problems directly on President Trump.
After Republican Congressman-Elect and military veteran Dan Crenshaw appeared on Saturday Night Live over the weekend to publicly forgive comedian Pete Davidson for a skit mocking his service, on Monday, the newly-elected Texas lawmaker was interviewed by the hosts of NBC’s Today show. In part, co-host Savannah Guthrie thanked him for his “incredible act of generosity” in agreeing to go on the comedy show.
Last week, NBC’s Saturday Night Live united the left and right in outrage when they targeted former Navy SEAL and now Congressman-elect Dan Crenshaw for ridicule regarding his missing right eye, which he lost in an IED blast. But during this weekend’s show, they invited Crenshaw on to bury the hatchet and to deliver a very important Veterans Day message.
In just a few days we will honor our nation’s bravest heroes during Veterans Day. NBC’s Chicago P.D., however, ran an episode November 7 depicting an Afghanistan war veteran suffering from PTSD and unwilling to seek help. Talk about tone deaf.
Since the Vietnam War, liberals have been known for their great disdain for America’s service members, despite their efforts to hide it. During NBC’s latest edition of Saturday Night Live, that disdain poked its ugly head out in the form of supposed comedian Pete Davidson mocking Republican congressional candidate Dan Crenshaw about the eye he lost to an IED blast while serving in Afghanistan, “or whatever” according to the funny man.
It’s hard to say if it came from a disdain for the U.S. military, an extension of CNN’s ‘President Trump is literally a third world dictator’ narrative, or some other sinister motive. But in the middle of a segment on the “migrant” caravan making its way to the southern border during Monday’s Prime Time, host Chris Cuomo suggested that the military would end up shooting the over 7,000 people when they got to the border in order to turn them away.
There was a bit of good news Thursday after President Trump announced that two of the 55 sets of Korean War remains returned by the North were identified. The remains were those of Army Master Sergeant Charles McDaniel and Army Private First Class Williams Jones. The identification of the remains would surely bring closure to their families, but NBC Nightly News didn’t think it was worth mentioning.
On Monday's MTP Daily on MSNBC, during a discussion of the fact that President Donald Trump's approval rating has stayed the same in spite of recent bad news, fill-in host Katy Tur was exasperated as she was clearly cheering for his approval rating to fall, and wondered if there was any reason to be "optimistic" that it would. Longtime MSNBC contributor Jonathan Alter described people as "deluded" who think Trump is doing a good job as President.
NBC News interrupted their Saturday night programming of America’s Got Talent to bring a somber and respectful look at the life of John McCain. What NBC didn’t account for, however, was what was playing after their special report was over.
As MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi prepared to cover Air Force Technical Sergeant John A. Chapman posthumously receiving the Medal of Honor during a White House ceremony Wednesday afternoon, he implored his anti-Trump viewers to stay tuned despite their opposition to the president.
