On Monday morning’s MSNBC Live, host Stephanie Ruhle made quite the comparison by suggesting that the smears against Judge Brett Kavanaugh were on par with Obama Supreme Court pick Merrick Garland not having a hearing, dismissing the President’s charge that these attacks were unprecedented for an appointee.
On Saturday's AM Joy, during a discussion of President Donald Trump's recent tweet on South African efforts to expropriate more land from white farmers, MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson managed to squeeze in a complaint about Fox News daring to cover the discovery of murder victim Mollie Tibbett's body on the same day as breaking news on Paul Manafort's legal problems. In fact, Fox News Channel spent a great deal more time on the legal problems of Manafort and Michael Cohen than on the Tibbetts story the evening both stories broke.
Over the past several days, during discussions of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville from a year ago, MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson went off the rails again as he not only defended the far-left group Antifa's hostility to cops, but he even suggested that police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, responding to the 2014 riots could be likened to white nationalists attacking blacks.
On Monday's The Last Word show, MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson hyperbolically claimed that President Donald Trump "attacks any and all black people who weren't bojangling for him" and declared that the President views "black people who do nice things" as "enemies" during a discussion of the President's recent attacks on CNN host Don Lemon and the NBA's LeBron James.
The journalists at MSNBC are awaiting a future killing in order to blame Donald Trump for it. Appearing on MSNBC Live, Monday, MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson preemptively accused the President: “And that's the other thing, we're going to have a Charlie Hebdo situation here, without question. Without question. It is going to happen. Because of the behavior of this president.”
On Sunday's PoliticsNation, during a discussion of recent high-profile cases of blacks who have been killed by whites, MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson declared that such behavior has been "empowered" by a "white nationalist, white supremacist presidency," adding that "It is a daily danger to live life as a black person in this country."
On the Sunday edition of MSNBC’s AM Joy, apologists for California Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters and incivility were out in full force. The Root’s Jason Johnson and The Beat DC’s Tiffany Cross both lent support to calls to harass Trump officials.
Appearing as a guest on Sunday's AM Joy, race-obsessed MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson accused former FBI director James Comey of resenting Attorney General Loretta Lynch for being a "black woman boss," and then went on to accuse Trump administration members of being "terrorists" who "terrorize people into leaving the country" to promote "white nationalism."
MSNBC, continuing to seize on Tennessee Senator Bob Corker accusing the Republican Party of acting like a "cult," has doubled down on the accusations of cultishness that started with Chris Matthews. While appearing on The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell on Wednesday, The Root’s editor Jason Johnson suggested that cults of personality have infected the GOP for decades.
For weeks, cracks have been emerging in Democratic predictions of a “blue wave.” While discussing the California primary election results early Wednesday morning, host Steve Kornacki, Voto Latino’s Maria Teresa Kumar, The Root’s Jason Johnson, and Commentary’s John Podhoretz discussed concrete evidence from the primary results that undermines predictions of a November Republican rout may be overblown.
On Tuesday's The 11th Hour show on MSNBC, during a discussion of President Donald Trump's dispute with the NFL and the Philadelphia Eagles, Brian Williams dropped a Hitler comparison as he likened the NFL caving to Trump on the National Anthem protests to Joseph P. Kennedy trying to appease Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. And race-obsessed MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson declared that Trump is angry at the Eagles because he is against blacks and whites working together.
Gosh, these people are coming unglued. During Thursday’s edition of Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews declared that “Fox News nation” (aka Trump supporters) are not interested in the American people “get[ting] along with each other” but instead “hat[ing] each other.” Matthews upped the craziness by arguing that, on the NFL’s new national anthem policy, “[t]elling the football players we watch on Sunday to behave as they are told is something we expect of apartheid regime, not a democratic one.”
