[LANGUAGE WARNING] The savaging of Lindsey Graham intensified on Sunday night as journalists seethed over his dramatic defense of Judge Brett Kavanaugh last week. Writer and MSNBC personality John Heilemann, on his Showtime series The Circus labeled the Republican senator a “fucking lunatic” for defending the Supreme Court nominee.
Appearing as a panel member on MSNBC's Deadline: White House, MSNBC contributor John Heilemann displayed the latest example of the liberal media's tendency to gloss over the Reverend Al Sharpton's history of stoking racism as he actually praised Sharpton's involvement in the Central Park Five rape case from 1989. Not mentioned was that -- as recounted by former New York Post columnist and current MSNBC contributor John Podhoretz -- Sharpton helped incite a mob which harassed the rape victim during the trial and chanted that she was a "whore."
The liberal media continues their pathetic refrain that Trump supporters belong to a cult, a particularly popular claim on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. Contributor and National Affairs analyst John Heilemann took it a step further on the August 16 edition of the political roundtable, claiming that there was just about nothing that Trump could do that would get his supporters to change their minds about him, including murdering their own family.
Not even 24 hours removed since the most potentially impactful foreign policy summit in a generation, the mainstream media has returned to its Trump-bashing obsession. On Wednesday morning, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough declared: “Primary voters in the Republican Party have devolved into a Trumpist cult.”
During Friday’s edition of Real Time With Bill Maher, host Bill Maher told his Trump-hating audience and his fellow panelists that he would like to see the economy fail if it means the end of President Trump: “I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point and by the way, I’m hoping for it because I think one way you get rid of Trump is to crash the economy. So please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that hurts people but it’s either root for a recession or you lose your democracy.”
In yet another blatant display of liberal media bias, we humbly submit for your consideration interview questions for Missouri Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill from Thursday's on Morning Joe. Interviewing a member of the prestigious Senate Armed Services Committee should be a real chance to dig for details about the chance for peace in Korea or perhaps they even ask her about the collapse of ObamaCare in Missouri? Wrong.
It’s not unusual for viewers of Morning Joe to hear people attack President Trump. However, the crew of the MSNBC weekday series took the discussion to a new low on Thursday, when co-host Joe Scarborough and contributor John Heilemann criticized the GOP occupant of the White House on his reaction to rumors about the First Lady’s health. The clash began on Wednesday, when the President tweeted: "The Fake News Media has been so unfair, and vicious, to my wife and our great First Lady, Melania."
During Wednesday's edition of Morning Joe, the panel almost seemed happy that the President’s planned summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un scheduled for June 12 may not pan out. Host Joe Scarborough accused President Trump of being “allergic to history,” in addition to accusing the people around him of being “contemptuous of history.”
While bemoaning during Friday’s Deadline: White House about the lack of decency and civility in light of White House staffer Kelly Sadler’s ugly comment about Republican Senator John McCain (AZ), MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace joked to White House correspondent Kristen Welker about choking White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
People on April 27 awoke to the astounding news and images of the historic summit meeting between the leaders of North and South Korea at the border truce village of Panmunjom. Although it is an extremely upbeat story perhaps signalling permanent peace on the Korean peninsula after 65 years of uneasy armistice, the mood on the Morning Joe set was about as joyful as a funeral parlor. Joe Scarborough gave very grudging credit to President Donald Trump but every such word he uttered seemed quite painful as you are about to see. He was followed by regular panelist John Heilemann who seemed to be about ready to burst out crying as he reported this would give Trump the opportunity to say he was proven right.
Joe Scarborough is deeply concerned about President Trump’s Twitter habits. On Tuesday, the Morning Joe host attempted to take the President to task by reciting a slew of negative words that had appeared in his tweets over the previous 24 hours, after which he suffered a full-scale meltdown over Trump’s most recent tweet storm.
Wednesday marked the historic day that MSNBC Contributor John Heilemann would hold Morning Joe panelists to a standard of honesty rarely seen on the show. When hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski interpreted a transparently inconsequential poll as a portent of a Trump defeat in 2020, Heilemann objected, soundly dismissing both the poll and their analysis of it.
