MSNBC host and notorious hate-monger, Joy Reid was excited Sunday morning, during AM Joy, as reporter Mike Viqueira came on with “breaking news”. Special Counsel Robert Mueller was spotted leaving church. “This is, you know, what some people would characterize as an ambush interview of a man coming out of Easter services at a church,” he admitted. “Some passersby weren't happy that we were doing that.”
It might be safe to say that NBC political director Chuck Todd was invested in or, at least, very eager to have Democrats start actively chasing down President Trump via impeachment. After seemly trying to goad Congressional Democrats into starting an impeachment case earlier on Sunday, Todd grilled Congressman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) during Meet the Press on why he and party leadership had not done more to get rid of Trump.
NBC political director Chuck Todd lamented the “real dilemma” Congressional Democrats had on their hands following the Special Counsel finding no collusion by the Trump campaign with Russia. During NBC’s Sunday Today, Todd opined about how the Democrats had to decide whether or not they wanted to chase their dreams of impeachment, and come to terms with the “unintended consequences” for each scenario.
As part of a six-person, unanimously anti-Trump panel on CNN’s The Situation Room Thursday, CNN National Security Analyst and Obama administration alum Samantha Vinograd proclaimed that the Mueller report “is a gift to the government of Russia.” Later in the evening, during a back-and-forth with former Bush administration official Scott Jennings, Vinograd refused to acknowledge that the Obama administration effectively dropped the ball on Russian interference in the 2016 election.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews took on an apocalyptic tone in the first half of Thursday’s show hours after the release of the redacted Mueller report and at least one panelist embraced it. In the second half, Matthews and his guests lobbied for Democrats to impeach President Trump with Matthews comparing America to being in a commercial break of a Law & Order episode awaiting a possible trial.
Just as they did during their Special Reports on Thursday after the Mueller report’s release, NBC’s Today turned Friday morning to former Obama official Neal Katyal for legal analysis and touting the possibility President Trump could be criminally charged once he leaves office and that current Attorney General Bill Barr wasn’t acting like the AG for the country but instead just for Trump.
As we saw the media meltdown Thursday upon the release of the Mueller report which found no collusion between Trump and Russia, journalists quickly began renewing their push to impeach the president over obstruction, instead. On ABC's Good Morning America, anchor George Stephanopoulos interviewed both WH press secretary Sarah Sanders and Democrat chair of the House Judiciary Committee Jerry Nadler in back to back interviews that showed just how committed to pushing the Democrat agenda ABC is.
Thursday’s Hardball didn’t disappoint as host Chris Matthews and his motley crew provided screaming Notable Quotables that will take multiple posts, but the first half provided plenty to start with, including an apocalyptic opening from Matthews, a first of many pleas for impeachment, and similarly doomsday-level talk from two guests.
In the wake of Thursday's release of the Mueller Report, the liberal media were desperate to latch onto anything. Despite the fact, there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia and no open and shut case on obstruction of justice, NBC News political director Chuck Todd appeared on Nightly News and declared that both actually happened.
A CNN political analyst and American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent, April Ryan has never liked White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. The reporter had once started a feud with Sanders because she thought the Secretary didn’t really bake a pie, and even suggested the Secretary wanted to fight her. But in the wake of the Mueller report, and Sander’s testimony in it, Ryan demanded that President Trump fire her for lying.
As those on Twitter have probably seen by now, CNN eventually started allowing conservatives on their airwaves by the late Thursday afternoon hours after the release of the Mueller report and Mary Katharine Ham didn’t waste the chance to own more than a few libs and their “operation in gaslighting” maintaining Trump’s guilt. And in contrast to Ham’s masterful takedown, liberal CNN political commentator Symone Sanders lashed out by suggesting that, if America had a real “justice system,” the President would be arrested.
With the Thursday release of the Special Counsel report reiterating that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, and at least partially explaining why there was no charge on obstruction, the next concern for ABC and CBS was the status of Democratic efforts to impeach the President.
