Anchoring special MSNBC coverage of Wednesday’s Senate hearing with Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd worried that “Republicans are playing to win” when it comes to the impeachment of President Trump while Democrats were “trying to play by the rules.”
Along with their over-the-top nonsense about the perils of not impeaching and removing President Trump, panelists on Tuesday’s Hardball argued that President Bill Clinton shouldn’t have been impeached because, unlike the Ukraine phone call, the crimes he committed never hurt anyone and didn’t harm the country in any way whatsoever.
A new Quinnipiac poll out Tuesday reveals the Democrats’ push to impeach President Trump appears to be working against them with voters, with a slight majority now opposing impeachment. The hosts of The View were upset at this news and lashed out at their Republican guest co-host, former Governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie on Wednesday's show, blaming Republican “tactics” for persuading voters against impeachment.
The case for impeachment, said the cast of Tuesday's MSNBC Live, is such a slam dunk that the only way that the Senate could acquit President Trump is if they are too stupid to "understand the story." At least they wouldn't be Russian stooges. MSNBC contributor and former U.S. Attorney Chuck Rosenberg, responding to host Stephanie Ruhle's inquiries about why Democrats included certain articles of impeachment, but not others, declared the number of articles to be irrelevant, because all they have to do is" adequately tell the story."
Throughout his closing argument, Monday, CNN host Chris Cuomo made a series of ridiculous statements as he pushed for impeachment. Not surprisingly, the TV personality trashed congressional Republicans who have not voted to impeach the President for “ignoring their oath.” Cuomo also attempted to accuse the GOP of acting like the “Deep State,” a concept that he would otherwise have contempt for.
Who said Joe Scarborough was consumed with hatred of President Trump? Take it back! Because Scarborough showed such admirable restraint on today's Morning Joe, saying Trump should only "maybe" be compared to the perpetrators of genocide and gas chambers.
With “U.S. military aid to Ukraine [being] at the heart of the impeachment battle here,” as CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell noted on Tuesday, they sent a reporter over to Ukraine to see how important that aid was. But while foreign correspondent Holly Williams was busy suggesting President Trump had harmed Ukraine’s ability to fight Russian-back separatists, she completely ignored the fact he was the reason Ukraine had received lethal aid at all.
With an array of guests, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews brought the histrionics on Tuesday after House Democrats finally unveiled Articles of Impeachment against Donald Trump, boasting that they were “push[ing] President Donald Trump closer to the brink of infamy” led by the “boss” (aka House Speaker Nancy Pelosi).
Well, the day the liberal media had been hoping for finally arrived on Tuesday as House Democrats released their Articles of Impeachment against President Trump. They were welcomed with anticipation by the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC). And despite the fact, the Articles didn’t include many of the charges Democrats said there would be, the media did their job and treated them like serious documents.
For the liberal national media, an unofficial part of any job title must include attacking Fox News in an either occasional or permanent capacity for all that ills America. The task fell to MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle and Chris Matthews on Tuesday afternoon as the pair blamed FNC for the lack of overwhelming public support for impeaching and removing President Trump from office.
Apologies to Elton John, but in Washington and throughout so much of the country, can you feel the hate tonight? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked by reporter James Rosen if she hates President Trump. She responded with an “if looks could kill ” fire in her eyes and denounced Rosen for his question while claiming she doesn't hate Trump. Former Vice President Joe Biden verbally attacked and challenged an 83-year-old man in Iowa to a push-up contest at a gathering of Democrats.
You know it’s bad when network journalists are poking holes in the Democratic conclusions. On Tuesday, the reporters on CBS continued to be unimpressed with what congressional Democrats came up with as they prepare to impeach the President. Chief Washington Correspondent Major Garrett saw the announcement of the charges as a letdown with Democrats “walking back away from some of the things they were alleging quite loudly two weeks ago.”
