While MSNBC's morning shows were touting the House Judiciary Committee's hearing on the Mueller report that include former Nixon White House Counsel John Dean and MSNBC anti-Trump analysts as expert witnesses, Andrea Mitchell took a different perspective on her Monday afternoon show.
While the liberal media on-site spent portions of Thursday chastising President Trump for his Ingraham Angle interview in the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial prior to his moving speech marking the 75th anniversary of D-Day, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews told viewers that he was uneasy with his colleagues in the press “talk[ing] nasty boy politics in front of the graves.” How refreshing!
During an exclusive interview with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at D-Day commemorations in France on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell worried that the Trump administration’s push to reduce illegal immigration may “threaten” the “values” that World War II troops “fought and died for.”
Appearing on MSNBC Thursday morning, just hours after President Trump delivered his address in Normandy marking the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion, former NBC Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw and chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell both expressed their “surprise” that Trump was “presidential” in his speech.
Never wasting an opportunity to attack President Trump, on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell and her guests did so as they sat alongside the military cemetery in Normandy, France, the final resting place of those who died in the 1944 allied D-Day invasion. Reporting from the site ahead of Thursday’s memorial service marking the 75th anniversary of the brutal battle, the panel of journalists denounced Trump for supposedly trying to “challenge the post-World War II order.”
Andrea Mitchell on Thursday ignored the fact that Democrat-led Louisiana is passing an abortion ban and pretended that it was only “Republican governors” who were passing such bills. Talking to the President of Planned Parenthood, she wondered, “Are you concerned that Missouri is just the beginning, the leading edge of this effort to, bit by bit chip away at abortion services in state after state where there are Republican governors and legislatures?”
In response to pro-life legislation being passed through various state legislatures, Planned Parenthood and other activists launched what they call their nationwide "Day of Action" on Tuesday in protest to these laws. Not surprisingly, that included Planned Parenthood President Dr. Leana Wen being treated to a friendly interview on MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Reports.
On Tuesday's Andrea Mitchell Reports on MSNBC, host Andrea Mitchell fretted that President Trump could lead the country into a war with Iran and was assisted with that assessment thanks to New York Times White House correspondent Peter Baker and former CIA Deputy Director John McLaughlin.
It seems that in the eyes of NBC News, the evil Iranian regime can do no wrong even as all the evidence points to their involvement in the sabotage (via explosives) of four oil tankers in the Persian Gulf. Despite U.S. warnings over a week ago about such attacks from Iran or its proxies, Monday's NBC Nightly News projected skepticism with anchor Lester Holt calling the explosions “a mysterious so-called sabotage attack”.
On Friday, several MSNBC shows took the time to promote groups of student activists skipping school to promote global warming alarmism as correspondent Savannah Sellers appeared on four different shows and spoke live in New York with students who were taking part.
Ooops! It's a safe bet that it wasn't the intent, but a Tuesday afternoon MSNBC report on the latest unrest in Venezuela made a very good case for why the Second Amendment, giving citizens the right to bear arms, is very important. It happened during a report by Kerry Sanders from Miami updating Andrea Mitchell on the latest news about the troubles in Venezuela.
While promoting planned House Democratic hearings on the Mueller report, on her Monday show, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell complained that President Trump “had three weeks head start” when it came to “branding this as case closed.” She advised Democrats that it would be up to them to keep pushing the case against Trump.
