Listening to MSNBC’s Chris Matthews reverential description of impeachment on Wednesday, evidently Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s “prayerful” demeanor is rubbing off on her fellow Democrats. Swept up in the excitement of the House preparing to vote to impeach President Trump, the Hardball host labeled the partisan process “sacramental.”
While the U.S. House of Representatives’ impeachment hearings were playing out in the background, MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews turned to Jon Meacham, the channel’s liberal presidential historian, and asked him to discuss House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s use of this “opportunity” to attack Donald Trump and try to throw him out of office. Of course, Meacham replied that the impeachment was indeed “a solemn moment” for the Democrats because the Republicans have become a “monarchal party,” and the President has been “acting in a kingly fashion."
Unlike CNN, MSNBC’s Hardball didn’t surrender its entire hour Wednesday to the House Judiciary Committee debate on the Articles of Impeachment, but considering all the nonsense uttered by host Chris Matthews and an assortment of guests, perhaps it would have been better to follow CNN’s lead.
Along with their over-the-top nonsense about the perils of not impeaching and removing President Trump, panelists on Tuesday’s Hardball argued that President Bill Clinton shouldn’t have been impeached because, unlike the Ukraine phone call, the crimes he committed never hurt anyone and didn’t harm the country in any way whatsoever.
With an array of guests, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews brought the histrionics on Tuesday after House Democrats finally unveiled Articles of Impeachment against Donald Trump, boasting that they were “push[ing] President Donald Trump closer to the brink of infamy” led by the “boss” (aka House Speaker Nancy Pelosi).
For the liberal national media, an unofficial part of any job title must include attacking Fox News in an either occasional or permanent capacity for all that ills America. The task fell to MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle and Chris Matthews on Tuesday afternoon as the pair blamed FNC for the lack of overwhelming public support for impeaching and removing President Trump from office.
Instead of memory-holing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s lashing out at Sinclair’s James Rosen on Thursday morning, the liberal media decided to play it up as a testament to Pelosi’s “stunning” leadership and MSNBC’s Hardball did just that, boasting that she was “fierce” in what “may have been her finest hour.”
That’s right, folks. On Tuesday’s Hardball, MSNBC contributor and former Obama administration lackey Ben Rhodes bemoaned President Trump’s foreign policy as “fundamentally corrupting,” “not how our government is supposed to work,” and “a criminal enterprise...that...was not in the U.S. national interest” that’s unrivaled in our history.
Between Tuesday and Thursday of Thanksgiving week, a number of MSNBC hosts seized on the latest United Nations report making questionable predictions about a "dire" future, and pushing for regulations to cut carbon dioxide emissions. The hype included Chris Matthews accusing President Donald Trump of exploiting the push for regulations to advocate "idiot nationalism," and Katy Tur fretted that scientists have not been "alarmist" enough to persuade U.S. leaders to react.
On Thursday’s Hardball, MSNBC political analyst Michael Steele reminded viewers why there’s no reason to consider him a conservative or Republican. Not only did Steele bash the investigations into the deadly Benghazi terror attack and Operation: Fast and Furious, but he seemed to express disappointment with Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX) for not leaning toward impeachment.
Fresh off his time in the spin room following Wednesday’s 2020 Democratic presidential debate, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews partnered with a team of liberal sycophants on Thursday to wax poetic that, in this impeachment inquiry, Democrats haven’t been partisan in presenting evidence in arguing for the impeachment (and removal) of President Trump.
Whether it was Lyin’ Brian still having a job, an array of takes on Joe Biden’s latest gaffe, Joy Reid suggesting unifying the country wasn’t important, or Michael Moore being Michael Moore, MSNBC’s post-debate coverage had it all late Wednesday and early Thursday. And in the closing segment, their final thoughts started off on well with Hardball host Chris Matthews warning Democrats for alienating Americans on cultural issues and often being too demeaning to America as an idea. But things were quickly thrown away by Moore, Reid, and Schmidt.
