Now that the liberal media have had a few weeks since Attorney General Bill Barr’s March 24 letter on the Mueller report, liberal journalists and pundits have returned to insisting that Trump-Russian collusion still took place and it affected voters and thus rendered Trump an illegitimate President. Not surprisingly, that nonsense was alive and well on Thursday’s Hardball.
For MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews, asterisks and history books are a small fascination of his. During the later years of the Obama presidency, Matthews fretted that birthers and other Obama critics supposedly wanted an “asterisk” next to his name or wiped completely from history books. But on Thursday, Matthews suggested that be done to President Trump due to the Russia probe and thus calling into question his legitimacy as President. And it came as a slight contradiction from this November 2017 interview with Donna Brazile.
Following Tuesday’s devastating scoop for the liberal media that the Senate Intelligence Committee had not found evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, Wednesday’s Hardball celebrated a federal judge’s ruling that Paul Manafort had lied about his contacts with pro-Putin individuals as a sign that there was indeed “collusion” and, therefore, the President’s in trouble.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews opened Wednesday’s show following the midterm elections and the firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions on a tour de force, deeming Sessions’s axing “a lightning strike” by the President as he “struck out at his enemies,” including Special Counsel Robert Mueller because it “threatens Trump’s family, his presidency, and perhaps even his liberty.”
On Friday's The Last Word on MSNBC, Lawrence O'Donnell was the latest example of the liberal news network peddling propaganda for Democrats as the MSNBC host hyped complaints about alleged voter suppression aimed at minorities while excluding critical pieces of the other side of the story.
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.”
Day after day in the Trump era, one has to wonder if the left and their media allies will run out of panic buttons to push. Such was the case Tuesday night on MSNBC’s Hardball as host Chris Matthews and his A-Block panelists accused the President of being a “delusional” “strong man” than ever and akin to John Wilkes Booth agreeing to criminal questioning without having to talk about Ford’s Theater.
For those keeping score at home, this is the third post on Thursday’s Hardball, so that should tell you plenty about the straight jacket-worthy craziness that unfolded on MSNBC from start to finish. It began at the top with ringleader/host Chris Matthews setting a grim picture of the country’s future down to NBCNews.com’s Heidi Przybyla seeming to question the intelligence of those in flyover country for not understanding the ramifications of the Russia probe.
Following the revelation on Monday that the FBI had raided the office of Donald Trump’s lawyer, the recent developments in Syria took a back seat on MSNBC’s evening shows. However, Hardball host Chris Matthews found a creative way to tie the stories together: by predicting the President would bomb Syria to distract from the raid.
On Wednesday, a Global Opinions Editor at the Washington Post praised the work of Christopher Steele as "extraordinarily prescient," created by a man who "had stumbled onto a breathtaking threat to U.S. national security." Accordingly, Steele, per the headline at Christian Caryl's opinion piece, "is a hero – and Americans owe him their thanks" — a Four-Pinocchio claim by the Post's own standards.
Politico media reporter Michael Calderone reports that Mother Jones employees complained years ago about alleged sexual harassment by David Corn, the magazine’s Washington bureau chief.
While the media covered up the breaking news put out by The Hill that the FBI discovered Russia’s alleged monetary involvement with the Clinton Foundation in an uranium deal with the Obama administration, libs and journalists on Twitter are trying to find a way to spin the story in their direction.
