Appearing on Wednesday’s NBC Today show to promote the Tribecca Film Festival, actor Robert De Niro also happily discussed his cameo on Saturday Night Live portraying Special Counsel Robert Mueller, even hoping for future skits where he could arrest Donald Trump and throw him jail.
Viewers may have temporarily forgotten they were watching MSNBC Thursday afternoon when 1:00 p.m. ET hour anchor Craig Melvin and his political panel hammered former Vice President Joe Biden for threatening President Trump with physical violence and even dismissed the “frustrated” and “bitter” Democrat for considering a 2020 presidential run.
On Friday, several MSNBC shows reacted negatively to President Donald Trump's call for more death penalties and tougher sentencing for some drug dealers. After host Stephanie Ruhle mocked the plan by wondering what should happen to drug companies, substitute host Chris Jansing the next hour suggested that the President has been too quick to support capital punishment in past cases, as she oddly included murder cases.
On Tuesday, MSNBC host Craig Melvin read aloud to Congressman Ryan Costello (R-Pa.) an anonymous quotation that painted a bleak image of his electoral prospects, before asking him, “Congressman, are you a goner?”
When the startling news broke late Thursday that President Trump had accepted an invitation to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, the media intelligentsia begrudgingly shifted their focus away from the Stormy Daniels controversy. But with the leak of an e-mail sent by Trump’s lawyer from his Trump Organization account, they leapt on the excuse to return to their preferred topic.
Echoing the slanted coverage of ABC and CBS, on Friday, NBC’s Today show closed out its two-week coverage of the winter Olympics by gushing over openly gay Olympians Adam Rippon and Gus Kenworthy using their fame to “stand up as advocates” and “voicing their disapproval when Vice President Mike pence was picked to lead the U.S. Olympic delegation.”
Appearing on the 1:00 p.m. ET hour of MSNBC on Monday, New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters proclaimed that Arizona Senator Jeff Flake’s outrageous comparison of President Trump to mass-murdering Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin was actually an attempt by the retiring Republican lawmaker to “save” the GOP.
On Wednesday, MSNBC was doing its part to spread misinformation that bolsters liberal spin on alleged "voter suppression" by Republicans as anchors Craig Melvin and Hallie Jackson -- hosting MSNBC Live at different times of day -- both wrongly claimed that, according to Ohio law, voters can be removed from the voting rolls if they fail to vote in just two consecutive elections. Washington Post reporter Aaron Blake stepped in to inform them that it actually takes about six years of not voting for a purge to happen -- but even he still fretted that other states might use the Ohio law as precedent to be more restrictive.
Throughout the entire legislative process, the liberal media were deeply invested in spreading as much disinformation about the GOP tax reform bill as possible. And now that the bill that they worked so hard to sink was actually law, NBC Nightly News spent part of Tuesday’s broadcast complaining about how confused people were and how they were in a holiday season panic following tax conversations around the dinner table on Christmas.
On Thursday's MSNBC Live, host Craig Melvin invited Connecticut Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal to complain about Congress not passing new gun laws since the Sandy Hook school shootings five years ago. The Democratic Senator was like a broken record as he complained that Congress had been "complicit" in shootings, and took aim at the NRA.
On Wednesday's MSNBC Live with Craig Melvin, MSNBC contributor and historian Jon Meacham made no pretense of being unbiased as he used a Winston Churchill quote to declare Democrat Doug Jones's victory over Roy Moore in Alabama to be "the right thing," and added that "that's probably good news for the country inarguably."
MSNBC suffered a meltdown for the ages on Wednesday afternoon following President Trump’s speech recognizing of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, unleashing guest after guest condemning the “delusional” and “Orwellian” speech that will cause people to die now that America’s credibility has been “shot.”
