On Friday, MSNBC anchor Ayman Mohyeldin expressed relief that Democratic Massachusetts Congressman and failed 2020 presidential candidate Seth Moulton had withdrawn his support for a supposedly “xenophobic” House resolution condemning China’s authoritarian regime for its mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic.
The media coverage of COVID-19 has now entered the "that's racist" phase as media personalities condemn Republicans for calling virus by names that refer to the fact that the virus originated in China. Ayman Mohyeldin was the latest to condemn this supposed racism as he guest hosted MSNBC Live on Tuesday during an interview with Illinois Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi.
American journalists, so desperate to blame President Trump for the coronavirus, are now trying to cover for communist China’s government by insisting any mention of COVID-19’s origin be left out of the discussion. Left-wing journalists took to Twitter to bash Republicans as “racist” for calling the coronavirus the “Wuhan” or “Chinese” virus, even though there’s a laundry list of other viral outbreaks being named after where they originated from.
On Joy Reid's MSNBC show, commenting on the Trump administration's proposed Israeli/Palestinian peace plan, MSNBC's Ayman Mohyeldin told Reid that the plan fails to deliver on the Palestinian desire "not to live under a brutal Israeli military occupation that has now been for more than 50 years."
According to MSNBC, it’s the “rational” Iranians who must deal with the “unpredictable” Donald Trump as the world waits to see if the U.S. will escalate tensions. Appearing just prior to the President’s address on Wednesday about the latest actions in the Middle East, Mohyeldin mentioned an unidentified “colleague”: “He was saying that it’s unimaginable to think in this day and age it would be the Iranians who are signaling that they want to de-escalate. They're being rational.”
In the aftermath of the strike that took out Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps top general Qasem Soleimani on Friday, MSNBC's Ayman Mohyeldin managed to question the legality of the strike, portray Soleimani has a "complicated" man, and to question the government's assessment of the threat he posed.
The media has long running tradition of advising the Republican Party that their best way to attract female voters and candidates for federal office is to do what is to stop being Republicans. The context for the latest edition of this "advice" was a New York Times op-ed by historian Nancy Cohen where she described Republican women as "on the brink of extinction." Naturally, there was strong pushback to Cohen's thesis, leading to an appearance on MSNBC Live on Thursday to talk about it.
On Friday's The Beat with Ari Melber, fill-in host Ayman Mohyeldin led a panel discussion in which he and other MSNBC regulars complained about President Donald Trump's success in getting Mexico to shoulder some of the cost and responsibility for keeping illegal immigrants out of the U.S.
The panel on Sunday’s edition of Kasie DC acted as Democratic strategists, giving House Democrats advice ahead of the public testimony of career diplomats as part of the impeachment inquiry. In addition, the panel predicted that former National Security Adviser John Bolton would emerge as a “star witness” for the Democrats if he decided to testify.
Not surprisingly, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough found plenty to complain about in President Trump’s speech announcing the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. During Monday’s edition of Morning Joe, Scarborough complained about how "the President of the United States went on talking about how Baghdadi died like a ‘dog, a coward...whimpering and sniveling.’” According to Scarborough, President Trump’s word choice made him sound more like two late Middle Eastern dictators than the President of the United States.
Over the past couple of days, morning shows on both CNN and MSNBC have hyped alarmist predictions made by a United Nations panel about how global warming will impact the world over the next 100 years. On CNN's New Day, co-host Alisyn Camerota asked climate correspondent Bill Weir, "How do you get out of bed in the morning?" after he finished detailing the "dire" predictions.
Over the past several days, the networks have delivered the latest example of the dominant liberal media suddenly taking notice of a normal government activity done by the Donald Trump administration and treating it as outrageous even though there was no media scrutiny when the same activity was also done by the Barack Obama administration.
