On Sunday's Velshi show, MSNBC host Ali Velshi joined left-wing activist Reverend William Barber in complaining that taxes on the wealthy aren't higher, and dismissed the benefits to society contributed by the wealthy. He also invoked Marie Antoinette against the Trump administration over its handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
On Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC, host Joy Reid and fellow MSNBC host Ali Velshi pushed for a British-style national health care system during the coronavirus pandemic even though there are reports that the country's National Health Service (NHS) has fared poorly during the current crisis. In fact, if one crunches the numbers, the overall per capita death rate from COVID-19 has been substantially higher so far in the United Kingdom than in the U.S.
MSNBC host Ali Velshi once again used the current pandemic to urge the U.S. to adopt single payer health care on Saturday. Unfortunately, for Velshi and his guests, their critiques of the current system and their praises of single payer turned out to be less than accurate. His co-worker in socialism education was Mehdi Hasan of the far-left Intercept website.
Since Tuesday, liberal journalists on CNN and MSNBC have been teaming up with elected Democrats to shoot down the notion that their collective obsession with impeaching President Trump slowed the federal government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. The biased coverage argued the “talking point” was “dangerous” and predicted that it would not “pick up much traction.”
Leftists with blue checkmarks on Twitter lost their minds when MyPillow CEO and Trump supporter Mike Lindell spoke about faith and his company’s plans to deal with the coronavirus in the White House Rose Garden. Liberal MSNBC Anchor Ali Velshi also took issue with it, and conservative actor James Woods wasn’t letting him get away with it.
Whether motivated by ratings or by some political agenda, liberal TV news networks on Sunday acted as though the coronavirus numbers released by the Communist Party of China were trustworthy enough to report on American national television. Throughout Sunday morning and into the afternoon, journalists on both cable and broadcast networks proclaimed that the number of confirmed cases in the United States had surpassed those in both China and Italy, even though that claim relies on dubious figures reported by the Chinese government.
On Saturday's Velshi show, as MSNBC host Ali Velshi again used the coronavirus pandemic to promote an increase in welfare and socialism in the U.S., MSNBC contributor Eddie Glaude made time to go all the way back to the Ronald Reagan administration as he complained about an "ideology" "that has demonized poor people" for decades.
Dr. Deborah Birx is a retired U.S. Army colonel who was appointed to her current job at the State Department by former President Obama, but that didn't stop Ali Velshi from attempting to do some petty fact checking of Birx's positive assessment of President Trump on Friday's The Last Word.
On Sunday's Velshi show, one day after MSNBC host Ali Velshi recommended using the coronavirus pandemic to push for more welfare programs in the U.S. to fix capitalism, he devoted a segment to talking up the possibility of also using the deadly pandemic to pressure the airline and fossil fuel industries to adhere to more regulations to effect climate change.
Anchoring his eponymous Saturday morning show on MSNBC, NBC business correspondent Ali Velshi gave a commentary in which he called for the U.S. to exploit the coronavirus pandemic to enact permanent welfare policies to fix the country's capitalism which he alleged is "broken."
During MSNBC’s live post-Super Tuesday II coverage early Wednesday morning, podcast host and stand up comic Pete Dominick went on a nasty rant against President Trump over the coronavirus. While many in the media have feigned outrage at the notion they are politicizing this pandemic, Dominick admitted proudly that they are, because Trump "doesn't care about us" or "science."
On Friday, MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi bemoaned far-left Senator Elizabeth Warren quitting the 2020 presidential race, lionizing her as a “dream candidate” who “laid out policies the way a scientist publishes findings in a peer-reviewed journal.” In frustration, he wailed: “What’s enough? What does a woman to have to do?”
