Nicolle Wallace and her MSNBC Deadline: White House panel went through the pretense on Friday that President Trump is suffering from Alzheimer's and discussed his removal from office due to the 25th Amendment. The big problem with this scenario they claim is that his cabinet is not intact. Oh, and also the fact that they would not vote to remove him even if they were intact.
There is clearly a method in Donald Trump’s Twitter madness. He attacked Rev. Al Sharpton as a "con man" who "hates whites and cops." This caused leading Democrats to rush to Twitter to defend Sharpton as a lifelong leader in "civil rights" and whitewashed his hateful, hoaxster past. That's just the way his NBC bosses describe him. Who, precisely, is enabling racial hatred?
On Tuesday, all three network morning shows seized on left-wing MSNBC host and controversial activist Al Sharpton attacking President Trump as a “racist” and “bigot.” What was completely missing from the coverage was any mention of Sharpton’s own history of offensive language and racial divisiveness.
Over the last few days, President Donald Trump has used his Twitter account to go after Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings and “civil rights leader” Al Sharpton. The New York Times could not resist, featuring not one but two front-page stories Tuesday, while egregiously calling the racially inflammatory Sharpton a “civil rights leader” and blotting out his past offenses against decency. The Times lead story led with the race card: "President Trump widened his war on critics of color on Monday with new attacks on the Rev. Al Sharpton and other political opponents."
There is perhaps no bigger race-baiting charlatan of the last three decades than Reverend Al Sharpton. The President of the National Action Network has spent his entire career pushing race-hoaxes, inciting race riots, peddling anti-Semitic slurs, and grifting towards powerful figures that boosted his profile. Through all of it, he was rewarded with a lucrative TV career at MSNBC and being called “arguably the country’s most influential civil rights leader” by Vanity Fair.
Following a full report on Monday’s Today show denouncing President Trump’s criticism of Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings, fill-in co-host and NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt fretted that Trump had a new target: “Hallie, the President’s also going after longtime civil rights advocate Al Sharpton this morning. Do we know why?”
How about that, perpetually aggrieved House Democrat Illhan Omar and President Trump have something in common -- both want to make America great, at least as Al Sharpton sees it. The difference being, Trump remembers an America that was great before it fell into decline while Omar sees no greatness whatsoever in its past, again according to "the Reverend" Sharpton.
On Saturday, the South Carolina Democratic Party will be holding its 2019 convention, an prominent political event at which nearly every 2020 Democratic presidential candidate will speak. However, many media outlets will be shut out of providing live coverage of the significant campaign stop because state Democrats have given MSNBC a sweetheart deal to report exclusively on the convention.
On Saturday's PoliticsNation show, MSNBC host Al Sharpton presided over a discussion of the Donald Trump administration delaying the release of the new $20 bill replacing President Andrew Jackson's image with iconic anti-slavery activist Harriet Tubman. As the group saw the delay as being racially motivated, Sharpton made clear that he does not know the difference between Andrew Jackson and Andrew Johnson as he TWICE claimed Jackson succeeded President Abraham LIncoln.
Is there a more consistently inane presence on cable television than the Reverend Al Sharpton? If there's any doubt, his commentary about a new abortion law in Georgia during Sunday's PoliticsNation on MSNBC should end what paltry debate remains. Sharpton was describing pushback against the law from a predictable trio of Hollywood malcontents, the ACLU, and Planned Parenthood when his commentary took a turn for the surreal.
As MSNBC host Al Sharpton appeared as a guest on MSNBC Live with Alex Witt on Saturday afternoon to discuss President Donald Trump's recent defense of his Charlottesville comments from 2017, Sharpton and fill-in host Phillip Mena both hinted that President Trump only recently made up the issue of demonstrators having legitimate concerns about statues of General Robert E. Lee even though video proves that the President previously discussed the issue of General Lee and other historical statues being targeted for removal.
Former senator and vice president Joe Biden is officially running for president, and once again went to Anita Hill in its front-page story Friday, “Biden’s ‘Regret’ For Hill’s Pain Fails to Soothe.” Hill is seen by the press as a victim of both Clarence Thomas and the all-white, all-male Senate Judiciary Committee. She made regular appearances in the paper during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, and been given a fresh life with Biden’s presidential announcement: "....Ms. Hill says the call from Mr. Biden left her feeling deeply unsatisfied."
