On MSNBC’s Morning Joe Friday, the liberal hosts and their guests’ engaged in their typical knee jerk reaction to a senseless act of violence, by immediately blaming Republicans. After two students were shot and killed by a fellow student at a California high school Thursday, co-host Joe Scarborough claimed there was an “epidemic” of kids walking into gun stores, buying AR-15s, and shooting up their schools. Not only that, but Republicans couldn't care less, unless the shooter was a Muslim.
While congressional Democrats did their best to make it sound like they were sad about the formalization of the impeachment inquiry, MSNBC’s Jason Johnson had a different take. Appearing on Thursday’s Deadline: White House, Johnson declared “I may be in the minority here. I’m not somber today. I’m thrilled.”
On Tuesday's Deadline: White House, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was dragged into a discussion of President Trump tweeting the word "lynching" to describe the Democratic impeachment drive. MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson tied conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Republicans to the white supremacists who murdered blacks during the Jim Crow era in the South. This in spite of the fact that the perpetrators were typically Democrats while white Republicans were sometimes targeted for trying to register blacks to vote.
Since 9:00 am ET Sunday morning, CNN and MSNBC have spent nearly four hours of airtime peddling dubious new charges of misconduct against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh that allegedly took place when he was in college. The claims were first published by The New York Times late Saturday night.
The sleazy new sexual-assault allegation against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in The New York Times drove out sleazy talk from MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson on Sunday's AM Joy. He called him "the fifth guy in a gang rape." Jason is so partisan that he flip-flopped on Gov. Ralph Northam (D-Va.) needing to resign for a racist yearbook page he made in medical school.
On Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, host Joy Reid bizarrely suggested that the media have been too soft on President Donald Trump and even likened coverage of him to treatment of Adolf Hitler in the 1930s as she lumped both together as "white conservatives." She also pushed a theory that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wants to tear down the country so that it will be in "pieces" when a "nonwhite majority" takes power in the future.
Thursday’s Hardball joined the latest liberal media attempt to defend the anti-Semitism of Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) amidst the decision to bar the two from Israel. In the show’s A-block, MSNBC host Chris Matthews and his crew of minions asserted that the decision by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Donald Trump was not only “autocratic,” but “racial,” “un-American,” and a sign of weakness.
Not surprisingly, the panel on Monday’s edition of Deadline: White House did not react favorably to “a new rule announced by the Trump administration” that “makes it harder for low-income legal immigrants who receive food stamps or other government assistance to stay in this country.” According to one member of the panel, this new policy constitutes “white nationalism.”
It was another par for the course night of nonsense on Hardball Tuesday, featuring MSNBC host Chris Matthews waxing-poetic about past presidents providing leadership in challenging times compared to Donald Trump. His panelists then suggested his rhetoric led to the death of Latinos in El Paso that he truly doesn’t care about.
In the early hours of Thursday morning following the Democrat debate, a race-obsessed MSNBC panel complained racism wasn’t brought up enough during the debate. In a mind-boggling discussion, the analysts urged Democrats to call out white “privilege” while insisting that whites who voted for Trump were racist, and needed to vote against Trump because he’s a white supremacist.
Considering how much bashing MSNBC has done of the CNN Democratic presidential debates and the moderators (Dana Bash, Don Lemon, and Jake Tapper), it was no surprise when the late-night portion of their coverage (12:30 a.m.-2:00 a.m. Eastern Thursday) repeatedly bashed CNN for having and insufficiently covered issues like education and impeachment and created too much conflict.
Appearing on MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle Thursday morning, regular contributor Jason Johnson, politics editor for TheRoot.com, denounced President Trump’s effort to include a citizenship question on the 2020 census form as one of his “crazy ideas that don’t make any sense” and “very possibly have racist motivations behind them.”
