On three separate occasions during Attorney General William Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, MSNBC interrupted its live, supposedly “gavel-to-gavel” coverage of the hearing. The one thing all those moments had in common was that Republican lawmakers were the ones talking when anchor Brian Williams chose to cut them off to “correct the record.”
On Morning Joe, after saying that he understands that it doesn't make "political sense" to impeach President Trump, Joe Scarborough calls for the impeachment of Attorney General William Barr, calling him Trump's "lackey" and "stooge."
The hosts of ABC’s The View predictably went nuts Wednesday following Bill Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. While tearing into Barr for allegedly “lying,” the hosts had sudden concern for ethics at the DOJ, and eagerly hoped the Attorney General would go to prison for “obstructing justice” and trying to conduct a “coup.”
Two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took a reprieve from wandering the woods of upstate New York to make an appearance during Wednesday’s The Rachel Maddow Show. The MSNBC host was ecstatic to have the former Secretary of State on her show once again; this time to talk about the findings of the Mueller Report and bash Attorney General William Barr for executing the duties of his office.
Things got awkward on Wednesday’s Hardball amidst the liberal media-wide meltdown over Attorney General Bill Barr’s Senate testimony when, during an interview with Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), host Chris Matthews compared the use of executive privilege to losing one’s virginity. Needless to say, Harris appeared visibly uncomfortable and so Matthews apologized a few minutes later.
It’s not often that CNN gets to share their more vulgar thoughts against President Trump. So, when Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) read a text message from anti-Trump FBI investigators calling the President a “f***ing idiot” on live TV (uncensored) during the hearing with AG Barr on Wednesday, CNN got to live vicariously through Trump critics that didn’t need to worry about FCC violations and fines.
Cable news talking heads suffered a collective conniption on Wednesday at Attorney General William Barr’s continued use of the word “spying” in reference to an FBI informant in the Trump campaign. Yet many of those melting down over this so-called “loaded language” had previously (repeatedly) used that same term in reference to the FBI’s surveillance of former Trump campaign official Carter Page.
Despite laying out the arguments from both sides following Wednesday’s Senate hearing with Attorney General Bill Barr, CNN Newsroom’s panel of analysts and hosts repeatedly illustrated before, during, and afterward that they would dutifully play the role of not just liberal partisans, but carry water for 2020 Democratic presidential candidates by attacking the “defensive” Barr who’s leaving “his legacy” in “tatters.”
You know, for all the liberal media’s talk political language inciting violence, you would think MSNBC would be keener and watch the words they use. Immediately following Attorney General William Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday afternoon, serial liar Brian Williams took to MSNBC Live and was infatuated with the radical California Senator Kamala Harris (D) and how she had “drew blood” from the AG. Gross.
Just hours before Attorney General William Barr sat down to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, all three network morning shows used Democratic talking points to frame the upcoming hearing. Reporters hyped an “explosive” newly-revealed letter from Special Counsel Robert Mueller as a “bombshell” that would ensure a “grilling” of Barr.
MSNBC or DNC TV? You couldn’t tell the difference on Wednesday as the vitriol thrown against Attorney General William Barr continued. Earlier in the day, MSNBC repeatedly interrupted Republicans during the hearings to fact check them. Nicolle Wallace called Barr a “liar.” Wallace and Brian Williams followed this up by assailing the “scary,” radical” Barr, comparing him to a cheating boyfriend.
Needless to say, CNN is not having a good Hump Day. On Wednesday afternoon, the panel of liberal journalists, lefty partisans, and former Obama officials breathed fire over Attorney General Barr’s Senate testimony, attacking Barr as “deceptive and deceitful” and “weak” while uttering “alternative facts” and chugging water. And as for Republican Senators, they were panned as partisan hacks “from Mars” with no concern for stopping Russian interference while Democrats are doing yeoman’s work for the people on the Trump-Russia probe.
