MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell lunged to promote the latest New York magazine screed by former New York Times drama critic and columnist Frank Rich, who insisted Trump's supporters were "Vichy Republicans," like Hitler's collaborators in France during World War II.
The October 1-14 issue of New York Magazine issued 10 pages of anti-Kavanaugh bile under the heading “Her and Him -- The hearing that broke America.” It’s a collection of brief essays on the September 27 Senate Judiciary committee testimony of Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh: Ten pages of inchoate liberal rage, from liberals including Jonathan Chait, Frank Rich, Rebecca Traister (preserved in amber at the moment after the testimony and before Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote), all shamelessly junking any pretense of due process while loudly assuming Kavanaugh’s guilt.
Former New York Times columnist and drama critic Frank Rich indulged in extreme Watergate fantasies to promote his liberal dream of Trump's removal from office. He strains to extremes to establish parallels between Watergate and the current era to the extent of defying political reality in his August 23 New York magazine article which revealed his severe Trump Derangement Syndrome.
New York magazine's June 26/July 9 cover story dreaming of a Trump impeachment, “How A Presidency Ends,” is by veteran liberal essayist Frank Rich, who worked at the New York Times for decades. The cover shows a “photo illustration” of Donald Trump in Richard Nixon’s outstretched-arms “V for Victory” pose. The inside headline counseled patience on the part of the magazine’s liberal readership: “Just Wait -- Watergate didn’t become Watergate overnight, either.”
Appearing as a guest on Friday's Hardball, MSNBC's Joy Reid claimed that Donald Trump's voters wanted him to "get all the brown people" off Obamacare instead of themselves. And then, following up on her AM Joy show the next morning, she hosted New York magazine columnist Frank Rich to discuss his latest article, "No Sympathy for the Hillbilly," in which he argued that Democrats are misguided in thinking that spending more time being sympathetic to Trump voters will lead them to future electoral success as they should work to boost their base turnout instead.
As New York magazine columnist Frank Rich appeared as a guest on Tuesday's CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon brought up the latest display of hyperbolic comparisons between Donald Trump and former Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, as the CNN host asked Rich about his latest article which likens Trump supporters to those who supported Hitler's rise to power. The piece even threw in a charge that former GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin had whipped up an "anti-Obama lynch mob hysteria."
In his article, titled "Trump's Appeasers," Rich suggested that Republicans -- some of whom he likened to "collaborators" and others to "appeasers" -- would be to blame if someone worse than Trump and more Hitler-like succeeds in coming to power in the future. The liberal columnist warned: "Trump has made himself the supreme leader of an enraged swath of Americans, perhaps some 40 percent of the electorate, as eager to blow up our republic as the Nazis were Weimar."
As most of the internet knows by now, top Hillary Clinton confidante and lifeline Huma Abedin announced her separation from soon-to-be-ex-husband and former New York Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner following new allegations that Weiner (aka Carlos Danger) is still sexting women despite being caught multiple times and led to his resignation from Congress (thanks to the late Andrew Breitbart).
Appearing as a guest on Tuesday's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC, New York magazine's Frank Rich asserted that GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio is "quite far to the right" and has a "very truculent neocon foreign policy" as he and host O'Donnell discussed whether the Florida Senator has the best chance of the "establishment" Republican candidates of being nominated.
On Monday's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC, host O'Donnell and Frank Rich of New York magazine talked up the possibility that GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz is not really a natural-born U.S. citizen and therefore not eligible to serve as President.
Rich, a former New York Times columnist, praised GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump as "brilliant" for pushing the issue, and the two at one point laughed it up together when Rich cracked that a wall should have been built to keep the Cruz family from crossing from Canada into the U.S. Rich: "The problem could have been solved if we had built a wall on the Canadian border and Canada paid for it. Then, the Cruzes never would have entered and we wouldn't have this problem."
Appearing on the Monday edition of MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show, New York magzine writer-at-large Frank Rich denounced the letter written by numerous Republican presidential campaigns to media organizations concerning the format of future debates as “fascistic” and written by “scared little children” but “seem[s] to have been drafted by Stalin.”
The New York magazine writer-at-large and former New York Times columnist and theater critic says Jeb's problems included not only Dubya’s war in Iraq and pre-9/11 “national-security failures” but also the supposedly unsavory, extreme-right types that 41 and 43 attracted to the GOP, thereby contributing to its ruin.
Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's CNN Tonight, former New York Times columnist Frank Rich -- now of New York magazine -- accused GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson of receiving support from a "racist, bigoted part of the Republican base," in the aftermath of Dr. Carson's comments opposing the election of a Muslim President. A bit later, he even accused GOP candidate Mike Huckabee of "bigotry" against homosexuals.
