On Thursday night's All In on MSNBC, host Chris Hayes went to our southern border and interviewed former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, who lost a Senate race to Ted Cruz, but is still being painted as a "rising star" in the Democratic sky. In a surprise, Hayes asked a question from the right to O'Rourke -- literally. He borrowed from a tweet from freshman GOP congressman Dan Crenshaw, about the wall. Would Beto take it down? He said "Yes, absolutely."
These last few weeks have seen liberal journalists blame Donald Trump for the shutdown, attack his presidency as racist and even compare him to cancer. Check here to see the worst of the worst media and celebrity meltdowns.
During Thursday’s edition of All In With Chris Hayes, the eponymous host joined a long list of cable TV personalities who have smeared President Trump’s supporters or anyone supportive of building a wall on the southern border with Mexico as racist. As for Hayes, he delivered a monologue, which concluded with the assertion that the Trump base wants “an ethnically pure America.”
Appearing as a guest on Friday's All In show on MSNBC, former New York Times executive editor Howell Raines suggested that there is the "functional equivalent of treason" in the White House, and asserted that, unlike President Abraham Lincoln's Republican party, the modern GOP is "intent on tearing apart" the Union.
In case you couldn't get enough of Chris Hayes and Rachel Maddow on MSNBC TV, Maddow chatted with Hayes last month for his online podcast. Maddow was discussing her podcast about former vice president Spiro Agnew, and how he was a corrupt racist demagogue like George Wallace. Then came her declaration 'I am a religious person...who has a belief in God," and then shortly after mocked Liberty University as "founded by a televangelist so that your Christian child wouldn't be corrupted by actual higher education."
On Monday night's All In show, MSNBC viewers saw an unusually heated debate between the left and the far left as Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin battled with Esquire contributor and frequent MSNBC guest Charles Pierce over whether former President George H.W. Bush was too accommodating to the "far right."
It’s certainly not a rare thing to have analysts on the liberal MSNBC and CNN cable channels declare that their least favorite person -- President Donald Trump -- has finally crossed the line with actions that will lead him into being kicked out of the White House. But on Tuesday, everyone from longtime liberal journalist Carl Bernstein to former Watergate prosecutor Jill Winn-Banks spent the day hyperventilating over an article from the New York Times that stated Trump had tried to have his political opponents investigated and prosecuted by officials in the Justice Department.
Ted Cruz has been reelected. The moment was greeted on MSNBC with a somber tone, extended moments of silence and a bizarre analogy from liberal host Chris Hayes. Reporting live from the Beto O’Rouke “victory” party, Hayes repeated this ugly comparison: “Someone earlier tonight, a Texas Democrat who is elected, described the math in Texas like being in a prison and trying to get over a wall.”
Between Wednesday and Thursday, several MSNBC anchors have continued to push discredited claims of "voter suppression" by Georgia Republicans, with host Ali Velshi giving credence to the claims on both days. On Wednesday afternoon shortly before 4:00 p.m. Eastern, during a segment with Adrianne Shropshire of BlackPAC as his guest, Velshi posed:
Frequent CNN and MSNBC Republican guest Bruce Bartlett decided to go down quite the rabbit hole Tuesday afternoon, opining that Holocaust architect and Nazi leader Adolf Hitler was a better person than President Donald Trump because he served in the (German) military, was supposedly faithful to his wife (which was debatable), and wrote a book on his own.
Between Thursday night and Friday evening, a number of shows on both CNN and MSNBC have pushed claims by Democrats that Georgia Republicans are engaging in "voter suppression" targeted at black voters because of reports that more than 50,000 new voter registrations of mostly black voters are being held in limbo because of errors in the paperwork. But only CNN's Jake Tapper has bothered to note that Secretary of State and gubernatorial nominee Brian Kemp gave an explanation for why a disproportionately large number of black voters were affected.
On Friday afternoon, moderate Senators Susan Collins and Joe Manchin announced they both would vote yes on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. As you might expect, MSNBC hosts didn’t take the news well. Liberal host Chris Hayes actually dropped his head in sorrow at the news.
