On Wednesday, both NBC’s Today show and ABC’s Good Morning America promoted congressional Democrats complaining about Attorney General William Barr’s testimony on Capitol Hill regarding the upcoming release of the Mueller report. Little or no attention was given to Republicans as anchors and reporters warned of “Democrats still not happy.”
In a hearing that was originally slotted to be about the Justice Department’s budget, Attorney General William Barr was grilled on Tuesday by House Democrats about the Special Counsel Report. He told Congress that he asked Robert Mueller to review his letter (which Mueller declined), but not to help him prepare it. During ABC’s World News Tonight, congressional correspondent Mary Bruce twisted that to suggest Barr blindsided the Special Counsel by not charging President Trump with obstruction of justice.
MSNBC legal analysts Cynthia Alksne and Glenn Kirschner were on MSNBC Live With Craig Melvin with guest host Chris Jansing to discuss Attorney General William Barr's testimony in front of a House subcommittee on Tuesday. Both Alksne and Kirschner accused Barr of protecting President Trump and suppressing information.
During an interview with NBC’s Maria Shriver aired on Tuesday’s Today show, left-wing comedian Chelsea Handler promoted her new book about undergoing a year of therapy following the election of Donald Trump in 2016. Doubling down on her remarks to HBO’s Bill Maher over the weekend, Handler described the “mid-life crisis” she suffered after the President defeated Hillary Clinton.
March provided television viewers and streaming platform binge-watchers another heavy dose of Trump hate. At least another 40 separate entertainment programs, on major networks, cable TV, and popular streaming platforms continued their vicious anti-Trump propaganda. What once might have been shocking is all too commonplace for a media in the later stages of Trump Derangement syndrome.
Friday’s edition of Real Time With Bill Maher contained the usual amount of anti-Trump venom one would expect from the HBO program. Maher suggested that the President has dementia while guest Chelsea Handler talked about how President Trump caused her to have a “midlife identity crisis” and fantasized about a sexual relationship with Special Counsel Robert Mueller; echoing a comment she had previously made on Twitter.
After trying to reassure their liberal viewers earlier in the show that the Mueller report could still damage the President, Friday’s Morning Joe panel eventually moved on to the latest Democratic strategy to take down Trump – his tax returns. After co-host Joe Scarborough expressed his hope that the documents would prove Russian collusion, pundit Donny Deutsch predicted a “silver bullet.”
Early on Friday’s Morning Joe, co-host Joe Scarborough accused Attorney General William Barr of attempting to “whitewash” findings in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation, going so far as to claim that Barr had “trashed his reputation for Donald Trump.” All of the anchor’s assertions were based on anonymous second-hand accounts alleging that Barr’s summary of the Mueller report was misleading.
The Late Show host Stephen Colbert delighted Wednesday night as his guest, actor John Lithgow, read aloud some anti-Trump poetry from his upcoming book Dumpty: The Age of Trump in Verse. The book features a collection of “doggerel, satirical poems” written by Lithgow that serve as a “kind of chronicle of the last crazy two years.”
Senator Kamala Harris appeared on Late Night With Seth Meyers on Thursday night and she was greeting with all the adoration you would expect from a liberal fanboy like Meyers.
The liberal media had their hopes raised of seeing President Trump jailed raised by the recent dubious reports by The New York Times and The Washington Post claiming that members of the Special Counsel felt Attorney General Barr mischaracterized their findings. Few in the liberal media would dare to admit the questionable nature of the sourcing of their reporting, but that’s what MSNBC host Chuck Todd did during Thursday’s MTP Daily.
Talk about a turn of events from a few weeks ago. MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews closed out Thursday’s show on a hopeful note that the Mueller report bodes ill for President Trump and his orbit and a love note for the news media being “ready to carry” the “truth” of “public servants” wanting to take down the Trump administration “into the grace of public light.”
