On Friday's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC, as Ari Melber substitute hosted the show, he misleadingly gave the impression that President Donald Trump's administration were the ones who began the practice of requiring illegal immigrant children to appear alone in court, even though his own network has previously noted that the questionable practice has been going on for years under previous Presidents.
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's The Beat on MSNBC, race-obsessed New York Times columnist Michael Eric Dyson ranted against rapper Kanye West giving a pro-Donald Trump speech in the Oval Office, trashing his words as "white supremacy by ventriloquism."
It was Joy Behar’s birthday Friday and the co-host of The View was celebrated by her fellow hosts with guest appearances and birthday wishes from Democrat politicians and liberal news anchors.The panel also talked about the news of the day, the vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, with guest hosts MSNBC anchors Ari Melber and Chris Hayes sounding more like View hosts than actual journalists.
On Ari Melber's MSNBC show, Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin, whom Melber twice described as a "conservative," said of Republican male senators commenting on the Kavanaugh confirmation: "they are so emotional, almost hysterical. I mean, I would make a joke about it, that they're behaving as if it's their time of the month, but this is very, very serious."
Wednesday's The Beat on MSNBC displayed the latest example of the liberal media's tendency to trumpet polls that seem to confirm their liberal views while ignoring other polling which undermines those views. During a discussion about the possibility that the U.S. Supreme Court would overturn Roe v. Wade if Judge Brett Kavanaugh were confirmed, host Ari Melber turned to pro-abortion activist Ricki Stern and cited a recent Axios poll as he posed:
On the Thursday edition of MSNBC's The Beat, host Ari Melber showed a pre-recorded interview with liberal actress Alyssa Milano in which they discussed her recent activism against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and her support for abortion rights. Melber also repeated the flawed polling which suggests most Americans support Roe v. Wade, and brought up Milano's invoking the Handmaid's Tale about a fictional American society that oppresses women.
Over an 18-hour period spanning two days, anchors on MSNBC and CNN all read from the same script as they warned viewers that President Trump’s typical criticism of the liberal media during a Tuesday address was akin to the authoritarian regime described in George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984.
MSNBC's The Beat with Ari Melber closed on Monday with an interview featuring Asad Rehman, one of the organizers of the London protests that are planned to take place during President Trump’s visit to the U.K. Melber repeatedly teed up Rehman to launch into a series of buzzword-laden rants about the President’s “normalization of sexual violence,” “his war on migrants,” and “his planet-wrecking policies,” before shining an adoring spotlight on the Trump “baby blimp” that will be displayed in London during the protests.
Hours before the announcement of Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick, MSNBC on Monday was already plotting to stop him (or her). The Beat's Ari Melber hosted a panel full of liberals and asked former Hillary Clinton 2016 operative Brian Fallon: “On the strategy here, what do you see as the best road to actually stopping the pick?” No subtlety there.
Our friends at Mediaite flagged down quite the exchange on the Thursday edition of MSNBC’s The Beat in which comedian Sinbad declared that the current incarnation of Donald Trump is “post-dementia Donald Trump who just loves picking fights cause...he’s a lonely man” and one of many “keyboard gangsters” on Twitter who are far less tough in person.
During Tuesday’s edition of The Beat With Ari Melber, one of the panelists, far-left immigration activist and open borders advocate Enrique Morones of the group “Border Angels” said that “Donald Trump, without a doubt, is pure evil. No other country in the Americas has walls.” He also said that “people are dying right now because of the wall that already exists. Eleven thousand people have died because of the 700-mile wall that already exists.”
The panel on Thursday’s edition of MSNBC’s The Daily Beat with Ari Melber spent more than ten minutes overreacting to comments made by Fox News's Sean Hannity on his show Hannity Wednesday night. Hannity jokingly advised witnesses in the Mueller probe, who have been asked to turn in their phones to Special Counsel Robert Mueller: “Use bleach bit, remove the SIM cards and then take the pieces and hand it over to Robert Mueller and say Hillary Rodham Clinton, this is equal justice under the law.” Former Federal Prosecutor Joyce Vance took his comments way too seriously; suggesting that Mueller should bring in Hannity for questioning and slamming the Fox News host for his “reprehensible conduct.”
