On Wednesday morning, MSNBC hosts Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi not only gloated over the defeat of Virginia Republican Delegate Bob Marshall by transgender Democratic candidate Danica Roem, but Ruhle even declared that, when Democratic candidate Chris Hurst unseated another Republican incumbent who had been supported by the NRA, it was a "win for America."
Republican Senator Ted Cruz (Tex.) spoke to reporters on Monday, a day after the Texas church shooting, and, upon hearing a number of shouted questions about gun control, he laid into the liberal media’s rush to promote the issue as one of the reasons why people don’t trust them. An unidentified female reporter muttered a question about gun control to Cruz seconds after he opened up to questions and, needless to say, he didn’t take too kindly too that issue.
On Friday's The Last Word, a panel of MSNBC regulars fretted over President Donald Trump's speech to the Values Voters Summit, and made their latest accusations of racist "code," with contributor Jonathan Capehart ridiculously suggesting that the words "take their country back" used by Tea Partiers in 2010 was motivated by racism. Substitute host Ali Velshi also fretted over a flyer from the event warning about the dangers of homosexuality, and, while previewing the segment, even briefly mentioned the MRC's "I Don't Believe the Liberal Media" bumper stickers that were also displayed on Saturday's AM Joy.
Appearing as a guest on Tuesday's MSNBC Live, MSNBC law enforcement analyst Jim Cavanaugh derided Congress as a "wholly-owned subsidiary of the gun lobby" as he complained about the difficulty of getting new gun laws passed. Calling himself a supporter of the Second Amendment, he went on to declare that it should not be a "suicide pact that takes away our life and liberty."
On Friday morning's MSNBC Live, host Stephanie Ruhle was freaking out over Republican Roy Moore getting nominated for Senate in Alabama as she hosted liberal guest David Litt and right-leaning guest Elise Jordan to discuss the subject. As is typical, Jordan contributed no right-leaning commentary into the discussion as Litt -- a new recurring guest on MSNBC -- was more partisan as he accused Republicans of engaging in "white flight" after Barack Obama became President. He also tried to insert another racial angle into the conversation as he theorized that a black man could not have gotten away with holding a gun on stage like Moore did, even though Sheriff David Clarke has held a rifle at right-leaning events -- more than once -- and is a big hit within the conservative movement.
During a wild segment of MSNBC Live on Wednesday morning, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson railed against climate change skeptics. He questioned their education, intelligence, and claimed they were participating in “the unraveling of an informed democracy.” And it was all said to the glee of MSNBC co-hosts Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle.
On Wednesday's MSNBC Live with Velshi and Ruhle, the two MSNBC hosts ended their show by lavishing over the top praise on a gay rights activist -- Edith Windsor -- who passed away and is credited with helping to legalize same-sex marriage in the U.S. The two recommended that a "statue" or a "monument" be built in her honor, and Stephanie Ruhle lauded her as a "true, true champion" and declared that she "loved" this example their show was highlighting.
On Sunday night, MSNBC’s Ali Velshi showcased his desire to not let a deadly crisis like Hurricane Irma go to waste, reaffirming his belief that it’s appropriate to discuss climate change as the cause of hurricanes like Irma while lives were at stake. Velshi made this pathetic proclamation during a Twitter debate with The Hill’s Joe Concha, who had tweeted that the media had largely been doing their job when it came to the hurricane.
Between Friday and Saturday, as Ali Velshi hosted some of MSNBC's live coverage of Hurricane Irma hitting Florida, the MSNBC host repeatedly pushed for there to be more discussion of "climate change" and how the U.S. government might try to effect it in the future. Ironically, on Saturday night, as Craig Melvin hosted MSNBC for a couple of hours, he fretted that there had not been enough discussion of "climate change" even though Velshi repeatedly brought it up.
In the aftermath of Attorney General Jeff Sessions announcing Tuesday morning that the DACA program that benefits many young illegal immigrants will be ended in six months, the left-wing news network immediately hosted several guests who trashed the decision, with guests using such words as "dark day," "shameless," "lie," "black eye for the country." One guest even invoked the "white supremacists that were marching in Charlottesville" as having a similar agenda.
On Friday's MSNBC Live, hosts Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi had a contentious debate with Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach over the issue of the Obama administration's DACA program that protects from deportation illegal immigrants who entered the country as children.
Throughout the day on Tuesday, MSNBC sounded the alarm that President Trump’s planned rally in Phoenix, Arizona could lead to violence. Hour after hour, hosts, pundits, and correspondents hyped “concerns about people’s safety” and the “combustible situation” that was supposedly being created by the presidential visit.
