Guest-hosting Joy Reid's MSNBC show, Ali Velshi finds it impossible to understand why President Trump, given his criticism of US journalists, would express concern about the possible murder of a journalist at the hands of the Saudi government.
Hollywood is piling more emotion on the scales.
Ostensibly conservative Senator Jeff Flake earned himself a cavalcade of new fans on liberal cable news outlets Friday afternoon after calling for a delay in the full Senate vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. In the moments following the Judiciary Committee vote where Flake made his remarks, hosts, pundits, and guests on CNN and MSNBC began tripping over themselves to celebrate this rare victory for 'bipartisanship' -- which just so happened to produce the very outcome they'd been demanding for days.
While watching live coverage of President Trump handing out meals to victims of Hurricane Florence in New Bern, North Carolina on Wednesday morning, MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi claimed that the event was “staged.” He was immediately corrected by the reporter on location who doubted that was the case.
During a live report from Wilmington, North Carolina on Friday morning about the impact of Hurricane Florence, MSNBC’s Kate Snow noted that some people refused to evacuate to local storm shelters, including illegal immigrants afraid of deportation. Moments later, anchor Ali Velshi sympathized with the non-fact-based concern, alluding to immigration policies under the Trump administration.
On Friday's MSNBC Live, as host Ali Velshi brought aboard Black Lives Matter leader Deray McKesson to discuss the controversial Nike ad featuring Colin Kaepernick, the MSNBC host actually hit his liberal guest from the left as he wondered if Nike was really doing enough to promote Kaepernick's political agenda.
Over the past couple of days, CNN and MSNBC have been freaking out over another Trump administration activity that was also done by the Obama administration which the liberal media only just noticed because they're so fixated on trying to find examples of President Donald Trump mistreating immigrants. Even though both the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations sometimes denied passports to residents of southern Texas who were suspected of having fraudulent birth certificates that conceal they were actually born in Mexico, a number of liberal anchors have shown shock over questionable reports that such activity might have increased substantially under Trump.
MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle displayed yet again why the media don’t understand the average American voter, in an interview with liberal billionaire Tom Steyer on their August 30 show. Talking about the continued support for President Trump and Steyer’s initiative to get him impeached, the anchors lamented how awful it was that voters weren’t ready to see Trump impeached yet, and cared more about his policy instead of his character.
At the top of the 11:00 a.m. ET hour on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi gave his left-wing guests free rein accuse Florida Republican gubernatorial nominee Ron DeSantis of being “blatantly racist” due to a poor choice of words he used in a Fox News interview. One of the pundits, left-wing SiriusXM host Mark Thompson, a regular on the cable channel, even demanded that the GOP congressman immediately withdraw from the race.
After getting basic facts about the impeachment process wrong – twice – MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi decided to move on from the topic on Tuesday, instead plotting with a liberal law professor on how state Democratic officials could indict President Trump and avoid an uphill impeachment battle in Congress completely.
During his 3:00 p.m. ET hour show on Monday, MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi devoted a segment to criticizing Florida’s gun laws and seemed to blame a lack of strict firearm regulation in the state for Sunday’s shooting at a video gaming competition in Jacksonville. However, just seconds later, the host was informed by a reporter that the shooter bought his guns legally in the state of Maryland.
Don’t go to MSNBC for facts on the Constitution. For the second day in a row, the network attempted to explain the process of “how Impeachment works.” Once again, the cable channel screwed up. MSNBC Live host Ali Velshi on Thursday lectured his viewers: “Think of the House as a prosecutor and the articles of impeachment is a document detailing the alleged crimes.” So far so good.
