Former Republican and current MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace further proved she isn’t any different than the hard-core leftists on her network on Thursday’s Deadline: White House. Wallace joined in with her liberal panel in ripping into Paul Ryan, Donald Trump and the rest of the Republican leadership in their response to Wednesday’s high school shooting in Parkland, FL, even making the ludicrous claim that the only reason why this tragedy was getting any attention was because the victims were “white kids.”
After weeks of breathless coverage of White House scandals, political intrigue, and gun control, the hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe appear to have gotten high on their own supply and inadvertently incited themselves with their own rhetoric. On Friday’s panel, Mika Brzezinski abandoned all pretense of objectivity – what little remained – and deemed Democratic turnout in the 2018 midterms “our hope for the future of this country.”
In the wake of Wednesday's horrific Florida school shooting, MSNBC’s Morning Joe hosted a handful of pro-gun control senators whose states have experienced similar tragedies. But while Florida’s Democratic Senator Bill Nelson was invited to appear, NBC analyst John Heilemann remarked that Marco Rubio – also from Florida – was “not welcome” on the show until he was willing to advocate for firearm restrictions.
On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace launched into a disjointed rant about President Trump and congressional Republicans in which she alternated between scolding Speaker Paul Ryan and insulting the President.
On Friday’s Morning Joe, the show’s liberal pundits could not contain their shock and horror at yesterday’s news that President Trump allegedly called Haiti, El Salvador, and several African nations “shithole countries.” While co-host Joe Scarborough saw the incident as more evidence that Trump is “in the early stages of dementia,” guest panelist Donny Deutsch and MSNBC National Affairs Analyst John Heilemann saw far more sinister undertones in Trump’s comments.
In the wake of the immense political conflagration that Michael Wolff’s upcoming book Fire and Fury has caused, Thursday’s Morning Joe was almost entirely consumed by discussion of all its salacious claims and their implications for the Trump White House. Even though multiple guest panelists on the show admitted to the shaky factual foundation for Wolff’s book and the unproven nature of many of his assertions, they nevertheless largely treated his testament as gospel.
On Monday’s Morning Joe, co-host Joe Scarborough and his band of liberal misfits devoted a full segment of the show’s second hour to accusing Fox News journalists of trying to “inspire hatred that will lead to the killing of Americans.” How is Fox supposedly doing this? Well, in the minds of Scarborough and his fellow MSNBC pundits, Fox News hosts and guests who have compared Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of the Trump administration to an attempted “coup” and the FBI to the KGB are trying to inspire a Timothy-McVeigh-style attack on the Bureau through their heated rhetoric. Joe and company failed to explain how their own repeated comparisons of Trump to Soviet and communist mass-murderers like Joseph Stalin would be substantively different from what Fox’s commentators have said recently.
The mood on Tuesday’s 11th Hour was rather jubilant following Democrat Doug Jones’s victory in the Alabama Senate race, with assembled MSNBC guests touting the “earthquake” that resulted in a “very significant night” for the ages in America. While it’s significant that an accused child molester and predator didn’t win the race, MSNBC was undoubtedly going to be celebratory no matter who the Republican opponent was as long as the liberal candidate won.
On Monday’s Morning Joe, New York Times Chief White House Correspondent Peter Baker was welcomed onto the panel to discuss his and his colleagues’ latest report about President Trump’s TV news-watching habits. In the course of discussing the piece, MSNBC National Affairs Analyst John Heilemann made a point of bringing up how Trump’s favorite nightly news show to hate-watch is, reportedly, CNN Tonight with Don Lemon. Heilemann tried and failed to get Baker to pin Trump’s dislike of Lemon on the President’s supposed hatred of African-American people before turning to Princeton Professor Eddie Glaude Jr., the show’s only black panelist, for backup. Glaude did not explicitly agree with Heilemann, but was clearly amused by Heilmann’s “slightly devilish” suggestion.
Friday’s Morning Joe was still devoting a substantial portion of its news coverage to discussing President Trump’s Wednesday morning retweets of three anti-Muslim videos originally posted by one of the leaders of the far-right UK political party Britain First. Not happy with just criticizing Trump for drawing attention to a group like Britain First or pointing out that one of the videos that Trump retweeted does not appear to depict a Muslim migrant attacking a Dutch boy (as the accompanying tweet claimed), host Joe Scarborough and MSNBC national affairs analyst John Heilemann instead accused Trump of deliberately trying to “incite hatred” so that his followers would kill or otherwise harm Muslims.
After Kellyanne Conway and President Trump blasted the very liberal Democrat candidate running for the Alabama Senate seat against Republican Roy Moore, the liberal media reacted with an uproar at the audacity of Republicans encouraging voters not to vote for Democrats.
The latest example is to be found from MSNBC’s John Heilemann, who, in a discussion with ex-Bush 43 White House alum-turned-MSNBC host Nicole Wallace, said the following in a discussion of Alabama Judge Roy Moore. Wallace asked:
