On Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show, Deadline: White House, John Heilemann attacks Fox News in general, and Sean Hannity in particular, for creating a political and business model built on lies, fantasy, hypocrisy, and "bullshit."
CNN and MSNBC's audiences heard repeated assertions on Wednesday that Special Counsel Mueller’s public briefing was “basically” a call for President Trump’s impeachment or prosecution. Rather than simply relaying what Mueller had actually said, cable hosts meticulously picked apart and psychoanalyzed his words to divine what the Special Counsel “really” meant: that the President was “a criminal” who ought to be impeached immediately.
On Wednesday's The 11th Hour with Brian Williams on MSNBC, during a discussion of Fox News reaction to Attorney General Bill Barr's testimony on the Mueller report, John Heilemann derided FNC host Sean Hannity as a "steaming, hot pile of Hannity" who is as "happy as a pig in ****" as the MSNBC national affairs analyst seemed annoyed at having to react to the conservative Fox News host's commentary.
During a two-minute monologue on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House Wednesday, NBC News National Affairs Analyst John Heilemann trashed Attorney General Bill Barr and suggested that he should be impeached. Heilemann frequently referenced a New York Times op-ed written by former FBI Director James Comey, where he slammed Barr; holding him up as a once-respected public figure corrupted by President Trump, whom Comey alleges “eats your soul in small bites.”
On the eve of Joe Biden's expected announcement of his candidacy, Morning Joe offered a very downbeat take on his prospects. Joe Scarborough said, " I have yet to talk to a Democratic activist or a Democratic fundraiser who is excited about Joe Biden getting in the race . . . almost every Democrat, to a person, that I have spoken with is concerned that this is going to end badly for Joe Biden, and that he should not get into the race."
MSNBC’s Deadline: White House is known as being a hub for those willing to do or say anything to slime President Trump. On Monday’s edition of the show, they proved that to be true yet again when they dedicated the first segment to the suggestion that the President’s weekend tweetstorm was somehow an outward symptom of some sort of “crisis level” “psychological duress” brought on from a mental “spasm” due to fear.
MSNBC's Morning Joe's week of strange Churchillian analogies continued on Thursday when the morning show panel discussed President Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen's testimony to the House Oversight Committee.
The Wednesday edition of MSNBC's Morning Joe kicked off with a conspiritorial and unsophisticated look at President Trump's policies towards Russia. After the intel chiefs condradicted Trump on multiple fronts on Tuesday in front of a Senate committee, Morning Joe was not content to criticize Trump, but said on multiple occassions that such a disconnect between the President and the IC was evidence that Vladimir Putin has something on Trump.
The Morning Joe panel devotes a segment to looking/hoping for signs of a break from President Trump by congressional Republicans. New York Times Washington bureau chief Elisabeth Bumiller encapsulates the sentiment: "We're always looking for signs of a break with Republicans on the Hill—a public break—from Trump."
The liberal media accused President Trump of "dodging" and "evading" Jeannine Pirro's question as to whether he'd ever worked for Russia. Yesterday, Trump made a flat denial, saying, "I never worked for Russia." But that didn't stop MSNBC's John Heilemann on Morning Joe from ripping Trump, saying: "The fact that he said yesterday, I've never worked for Russia, just made you think of [unintelligble] our two previous Presidents embroiled in potential impeachments: Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon saying, Bill Clinton: I never had sexual relations with that woman. And Richard Nixon: I am not a crook. Turned out they were lying. Maybe Donald Trump is, too."
During Monday’s edition of Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough and his panel predicted that the Republican Party will be “reduced to dust” if it continues to stand behind President Trump amid the government shutdown. After calling him a liar, Scarborough asked “why does this party continue marching over the cliff like lemmings behind a guy...whose approval rating is about 40 percent on an issue where 75 percent of Americans oppose the President?”
In 2018 there was a torrent of ugliness directed at conservatives. Vice President Mike Pence was disgustingly derided as a “dangerous” Christian with a “mental illness” on ABC’s The View. When White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was hounded by leftist activists at a Virginia restaurant, The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin praised them as she condemned: “Sarah Huckabee has no right to live a life of no fuss, no muss, after lying to the press.”
