Liberal cable news outlets evidently had their own fairy tale ending in mind when former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations: impeachment. On Wednesday, CNN and MSNBC reporters, anchors, and paid contributors used the word an absurd 222 times in 18 hours.
During Tuesday’s Hardball, the indictment of California Congressman Duncan Hunter for campaign finance violations came up as host Chris Matthews made sure to point out that Hunter was not only a Republican but the second member of Congress to endorse President Trump. Matthews gleefully pointed out that the first Member in New York Congressman Chris Collins has been indicted for insider trading and lying to the FBI.
On Tuesday evening and following a whirlwind of a news day, Omarosa dropped a massive nothingburger while appearing on MSNBC’s Hardball. Host Chris Matthews peppered her with questions, in an attempt to have her get to the bottom of whether or not Trump is guilty in the eyes of the liberal media. Spoiler alert: he is.
On Monday’s edition of Hardball with Chris Matthew, former federal prosecutor Cynthia Alksne joined a discussion on the legal cases surrounding President Trump. Among the cases discussed were those concerning former Trump Campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen. Alksne had specific advice for Cohen, saying that “he can give the prosecutor something on Trump’s kids.”
Yes, that headline is real. In covering the effort by over 350 newspapers to collude against President Trump, Wednesday’s Hardball featured MSNBC host Chris Matthews alluding to Thomas Paine’s Common Sense and Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin in the segment promoting the anti-Trump collusion campaign started by The Boston Globe.
Well, that’s a new one that’ll have our Founders rolling in their graves. At the top of Wednesday’s Hardball, longtime MSNBC liberal Chris Matthews asserted that the feud of President Trump vs. Omarosa Manigault Newman marks “a new era in American politics, an old-fashioned duel that hearkens back to the days of Hamilton and Burr, but with a made-for-reality-TV update.”
MSNBC host Chris Matthews could barely contain his excitement as he interviewed Omarosa Manigault Newman, former Trump White House staffer, during Monday night’s edition of Hardball. Newman, the author of a new book called Unhinged, received the red carpet treatment as Matthews effectively gave a ten-minute long advertisement for her book; which paints a dystopian picture of the Trump administration and President Trump himself.
Seemingly running out of things to talk about or ways to spin how much trouble President Trump finds himself in, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews compared the President to a ship captain stuck “in a typhoon” making America a “Third World” country who’s struggling with his mental faculties.
In an Obama-like and pathetic display of worshiping at the feet of Robert Mueller’s investigation, MSNBC’s Hardball opened Tuesday with glee on day one for the first Paul Manafort trial as host Chris Matthews and assembled guests hoped that it was “opening night” or “a day of history” that could begin “the dismantling of the Trump administration.”
As soon as the second quarter GDP growth of 4.1 percent became public, the media did their best to downplay the good news and refrain from giving President Trump and his policies credit for the strong economy, instead accusing him of using the news to “distract” from the Russia investigation. Not surprisingly, the dismissal of the President’s role in the good economy began before the report even came out.
It seems as though Chris Matthews never lost the “thrill” up his leg. Seven and a half years after that infamous comment, the Hardball host reflected on Barack Obama’s presidency. On July 22, 2015, Matthews gushed: over the “immaculate,” “perfect” Democrat: “He's been immaculate in the presidency. Nobody has accused him of any corruption. His kids are perfect. His wife is perfect.”
Well, folks, it looks like MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews is going to need another panic button after Thursday’s show. All show, Matthews touted as if it were fact that President Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice in the Mueller probe and that, based on his tweets and the Comey firing, he could be removed from office.
