On Friday's MSNBC Live, an all-liberal panel consisting of host Stephanie Ruhle, CNBC contributor Ron Insana and MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson fretted over the likely deportation of a U.S. Army veteran, Miguel Perez, who was convicted in 2008 of trying to sell cocaine to an undercover agent. Because he is not a citizen, after he finished his prison sentence in 2016, he was targeted for deportation because of the drug conviction, and, just this week seems to have exhausted all his options in trying to avoid being sent back to Mexico.
In the wake of the Hawaii nuclear missile warning that turned out the be a false alarm, the radical fringe of the liberal media have decided that the only person that really deserved the blame was President Trump. Despite the fact that he had no influence on the state employee who pushed the button, and who idiotically still has a job, the liberal panel on MSNBC’s Hardball not only blamed Trump for the false alarm but claimed he didn’t care about the state because they supported Hillary Clinton.
On the Thursday edition of MSNBC's All In, The Root's politics editor and MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson demonstrated how difficult it is for liberal commentators to settle for giving sober criticism and avoid going into over the top hysterics when when reacting to President Donald Trump making incendiary comments that are actually worthy of rebuke. During a discussion of Trump reportedly deriding Haiti and other Third World nations as "shithole" countries, Johnson declared that the President is both an "enemy" to and a "clear and present danger to non-white people in America." He also warned that Trump is a "terrorist sympathizer" that Democrats should not "negotiate" with whose policies would make the U.S. "in danger as a sovereign nation."
On Tuesday's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC, substitute host Ari Melber suggested that conservatives who are concerned about there being a "war on Christmas" are either motivated by "ignorance" or by anti-Semitism as he fretted over President Donald Trump speaking on the subject.
As the saying goes, a broken clock is right twice a day but, in this case, twice in two days. On Wednesday and Thursday, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews encouraged and exhibited the need for caution in the story of the late Sgt. La David Johnson while praising John Kelly’s heart-breaking remarks during Thursday’s White House daily briefing. New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush shared the same sentiment, criticizing the “tremendous rush to judgment” based on each person’s political views.
On Tuesday's The 11th Hour with Brian Williams on MSNBC, anchor Brian Williams hosted a segment with former Republican Rep. David Jolly and liberal MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson to discuss Jolly's recent contention that he believes the country might be better off if his own party loses to Democrats in the 2018 congressional elections.
In recent days, race-obsessed MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson has again been going off the rails with hyperbolic accusations of racism. Not only did he oddly accuse Toys R Us of promoting "white supremacy," but he even made a crack about Republicans and the KKK as he described the Alabama GOP Senate primary contest as "the Ku Klux versus the Klan."
Over the weekend, the always ultra-liberal AM Joy show on MSNBC included a couple of especially noteworthy incidents of guests hyperbolically attacking President Donald Trump as frequent MSNBC guest (and former New York Times reporter) David Cay Johnston called him a "flat-out full racist," and MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson claimed the President was a "danger to this planet" and "everybody in this particular country."
This past week, a Republican state legislator in Georgia made news after he posted arguably threatening messages on Facebook directed at a black Democratic former legislator who had complained about Confederate monuments. It was not surprising that the indefensible messages got the attention of race-obsessed MSNBC contributor and The Root politics editor Jason Johnson, but what was unexpected is that he oddly used the incident as a springboard to attack her for supporting a white candidate over a black candidate in the Democratic primary for governor.
In an article posted on Sunday at The Root, race-obsessed MSNBC contributor and The Root politics editor Jason Johnson devotes his column to rationalizing the verbal harassment aimed at two white high school girls who visited predominantly black Howard University as one wore a pro-Trump hat and the other a pro-Trump T-shirt. And, a couple days earlier, the MSNBC contributor devoted an article to describing the Trump administration as a "terrorism presidency," and tagged the President as a "terrorist sympathizer."
In his column this week at The Root, MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson made his latest launch into hyperbole as he claimed that the Trump administration "wants to return America" to the days of "white grievance, violence and discrimination" against blacks, referring to the Philadelphia transit strike of 1944 in which white workers opposed the promotion of blacks to better jobs. Johnson also coined the term "White Pride Week" to mock recent decisions by the administration on race-based college admissions and immigration policy changes.
Appearing as a panel member on Saturday's AM Joy, MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson -- known for his many race-obsessed comments and his column at The Root -- fretted that, allegedly unlike white men, California Democratic Senator Kamala Harris would face questions about her "competency" if she runs for President in 2020.
