Two days after informing viewers that his “job...actually is to scare people to death” about war with North Korea, MSNBC host Brian Williams and guests served up more kooky thoughts on Thursday’s The 11th Hour by comparing President Trump to Kim Jong-un and swooning over a “renaissance” in American journalism. Oh, and that was all within the show’s opening segment, aka the A-Block.
In a rare moment of truth from MSNBC’s serial liar late Tuesday night, Brian Williams admitted on his show The 11th Hour that “our job tonight actually is to scare people to death on this subject.” The subject Williams was referring to was the confrontation between President Trump and North Korea. That comment came during a roughly 16-minute segment where he and the stacked panel talked about the threat of North Korea and smeared President Trump for his recent comment to the radical regime.
Along with the familiar refrains about Russia and Donald Trump’s rhetoric, the liberal media this month were preoccupied with rescuing ObamaCare. When one of the media’s favorite Republicans, Senator John McCain, cast a vote that kept Barack Obama’s signature legislation alive MSNBC’s Brian Williams hailed it as a “moment of moral courage.” Meanwhile his MSNBC colleague Chris Matthews was so obsessed with pushing the Trump-Russia narrative he actually worried about some newspapers not giving it enough coverage as he fretted how print readers were “going to keep up with Russia?” The following is a collection of worst media and celebrity outbursts from the past few weeks:
President Donald Trump has only been in office six months, and MSNBC host Brian Williams is already asking if he is a "lame-duck President." On Wednesday's The 11th Hour with Brian Williams, during a discussion about the latest news on President Trump with presidential historians Michael Beschloss and Jon Meacham, Williams turned to Meacham and posed: "Jon, if you put it all together, legislative failures, being forced to sign the Russia sanctions veto-proof vote in Congress, and where his polling is, is this a lame-duck President?"
Brian Williams is not a man for irony. The disgraced MSNBC host, who lost his NBC anchoring job because of repeated false statements and exaggerations about his own reporting, does not like the phrase fake news. On Monday’s show, he derided the use of the words as "pernicious” and “insidious.”
Late night MSNBC anchor Brian Williams on Friday cheered the “moral courage” of John McCain and two other Republicans to derail ObamaCare repeal efforts. The journalist also hoped for GOP “heroes” in the mode of Republicans who stood up during Watergate. Narrating McCain’s vote against repeal, Williams touted, “In the well of the Senate, it came down to one very dramatic moment... Much was made of that moment, a moment of moral courage, a man staring down his own mortality yet again.”
Wrapping up his coverage of Friday’s early morning Senate vote that at least temporarily scuttled GOP hopes for a repeal of ObamaCare, MSNBC anchor Brian Williams could not help but admire Senator John McCain’s decision to align himself with Democrats, calling him and two other GOP defectors a “profile in courage,” and he welcomed the vote against the Republican bill as “the people of this country... getting their voices heard.”
You can’t disagree with the left anymore without some sort of ulterior motive ascribed to you. After all, if you were a good person, you would think like them.
Appearing as a panel member on Wednesday's The 11th Hour on MSNBC, presidential historian and former Newsweek editor-in-chief Jon Meacham took a whack at Donald Trump supporters as he asserted that Republicans have "Stockholm Syndrome" and have "sold their souls" in supporting Trump's election as president. A bit earlier, fellow panel member and liberal columnist Connie Schultz suggested that the political debate over replacing Obamacare is causing "anxiety" in people that requires treatment from doctors.
On MSNBC Wednesday morning, two of MSNBC’s most prominent anchors admitted they had no idea what Trump was referring to, when he tweeted out that the Clinton campaign also sought out information from foreign government officials to help boost her campaign, during the 2016 election. After reading the tweet, Brian Williams asked Andrea Mitchell if she knew what he was talking about. “I’m hoping you can help me decipher this,” he asked. “It’s hard to figure out what this is about,” Andrea Mitchell quizzically responded.
On Tuesday's The 11th Hour with Brian Williams on MSNBC, it was another case of an alleged Republican pushing a left-leaning point-of-view instead of a conservative one as The Atlantic senior editor, former George W. Bush speech writer, and recurring MSNBC guest David Frum argued against Republican efforts to make substantial changes to ObamaCare. At one point, he even admitted he only considers himself a Republican because of foreign policy issues.
Following his increasingly infamous spat with Sarah Huckabee Sanders over the credibility of the media’s recent reporting, Brian Karem, writer for The Sentinel and Playboy, took to the airwaves to vent his concerns to other highly regarded news intellectuals. This eventually led him to the entirely credible, and not at all untrustworthy, person of Brian Williams. “They've never admitted a mistake,” Karem whined and huffed incessantly to Brian, “There is never any accountability, yet they want to flip the script and hold us accountable while not accepting any responsibility themselves and that's a very childish maneuver.”
