On Sunday, President Trump rightly came under fire for saying in a tweet that four left-wing congresswomen should “go back to where they came from” because of their hatred for America. It was a very misguided tweet from the President. Those four members of Congress should be criticized for their radical views and not on the basis of their ancestry.
There is perhaps no moment in Donald Trump’s presidency in which the media unnecessarily melted down more than in their coverage of President Trump’s Fourth of July “Salute to America” celebration. The event itself was a tribute to America’s military and the country’s history. It featured flyovers from all five branches of the military.
The leftist media seeks to vilify those who support conservative ideals and glorify all who oppose them. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R), has felt the wrath of the press for decades so it’s not surprising that the liberal media are pulling out all the stops for his Democratic opponent Amy McGrath.
On Morning Joe Wednesday, holier-than-thou co-host Joe Scarborough lectured white evangelicals who supported Trump as disobeying Jesus Christ’s commands to feed the hungry and take care of the poor. The segment was spurred by a Pew Research Center poll that showed only 25% of white evangelicals believed the U.S. had a “responsibility” to accept refugees into the country.
If this doesn't constitute an in-kind campaign contribution, what in the heck would? Today's Morning Joe devoted an 11-minute segment to promoting the candidacy of Amy McGrath, a Democrat who has announced her candidacy to run for the US Senate seat from Kentucky against Mitch McConnell. Even before McGrath appeared, Morning Joe ran the entirety of her minute-long announcement ad. And in ending the interminable segment, the panel repeatedly pushed people to McGrath's website, suggesting that they donate.
One reason many Americans don’t trust those “fact checker” websites is because to know them is to see right through their incessant liberal worldview. These impartial arbiters of truth routinely defend Democrats as being “Mostly True” on everything, while savaging Republicans as just the opposite. It's not just Trump, mind you. It's Cruz, and Santorum, and Gingrich, and pretty much anyone who challenges liberal orthodoxy. So it was maddening that NBC News put its “fact checker” Jane Timm on the first Democrat debate, who then proclaimed on their “NBC News Now” live-stream that “we had a pretty clean debate.”
On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough, speaking as someone who unequivocally proclaimed "I want Donald Trump to lose," said that last night's debate was a "disaster" for Democrats. Scarborough made a four-pronged argument: first, Dems went after each other rather than attacking President Trump. Second and third: the unanimous Dem support for health-care-for-life for illegal immigrants, and for making illegal entry into the US no longer illegal, will lose the Dem candidate several states. Scarborough also said Biden's performance might have been the "most disturbing" he's seen since Reagan's first 1984 debate.
For many Democrats and their media allies, the 2020 election is about one thing and one thing only: beating Donald Trump. Instead of focusing on the issues that the American people care about, they’ve made their main goal for 2020 to remove President Trump from office by any means necessary. During Wednesday night's debate, NBC moderators even pressed candidates on whether they would prosecute Trump if elected.
On Monday, Morning Joe finally discovered something that the rest of America has known for over a year: there is a humanitarian crisis at America’s southern border. In doing so, however, they ignored the real issues plaguing America’s Customs and Border Patrol and went straight to throwing particularly disgusting political dirt at the Trump Administration.
When on Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch praised President Trump's restraint on Iran, Joe Scarborough interjected to clarify that Deutsch was only referring to Trump's restraint in regard to attacking Iran. Scarborough was concerned that Deutsch would get "killed" on Twitter if it were thought he was more broadly praising Trump's restraint. Scarborough also said that although Trump "lies," his lies were not "deadly," unlike those made by JFK and LBJ when they lied about the winnability of the Vietnam War. Those lies, said Scarborough, led to 57,000 American deaths.
Defending Joe Biden over his remarks about having worked with segregationist senators, Joe Scarborough says that Franklin Roosevelt did the same, and as a result, "FDR passed Social Security, passed the New Deal and he saved this country and saved poor people like my parents in the Deep South." In fact, the New Deal did nothing to "save the country." The Depression lingered after its adoption and it was only sometime after the beginning of WWII that the emerged from the Depression.
President Donald Trump infuriated the left again on June 19, when he awarded supply-side economist Arthur Laffer the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The left’s reaction was predictably vicious. An MSNBC analyst called Laffer one of the most “destructive forces” in economics since Herbert Hoover. New York Magazine writer Jonathan Chait minced no words about his anger over Laffer’s award ceremony, calling him a “kook” elevated to “metaphysical status” within the Republican Party. He ridiculed Laffer’s theory as “provably untrue” and based on a “fake curve.”
