On MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday, left-wing regular Donny Deutsch was convinced that vague allegations of someone overhearing President Trump making controversial comments to another world leader during a private phone call would be the commander in chief’s downfall. Deutsch promised his fellow liberals that “this is the big one” and pleaded for Democrats to “storm the gate” with investigations.
In the world of hacks like Jeremy Peters and Brian Stelter, only journalists should be able to ruin someone’s life over past statements or offensive lines that were either harmless or sarcastic. Unfortunately, that happened Tuesday as Bloomberg’s Ben Penn forced Labor Department official Leif Olson to resign after just 18 days because, according to Penn, had “a history of advancing controversial conservative and faith-based causes in court” and writing “a 2016 Facebook post suggesting the Jewish-controlled media ‘protects their own
When it comes to having a spokesman for Trump-Hater Nation, Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and the rest of the loony left must be thrilled. In Joe Scarborough, they have someone who gets three hours of TV time every weekday morning to beam Trump hatred to the masses. Doing his bit on today's Morning Joe, Scarborough sided with Pelosi in proclaiming the wall "immoral."
Upset with prospective 2020 presidential candidates Howard Schultz and Michael Bloomberg blasting Senator Elizabeth Warren’s far-left proposal for a “wealth tax” on people’s assets, on Wednesday afternoon, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur complained that the billionaires “have more wealth and everybody else combined” with “almost no middle class any longer” in the U.S. At that point, Commentary Magazine Editor John Podhoretz tore apart her “crazy” assertion.
On MTP Daily, Chuck Todd floats a novel theory about who is behind the pipe bombs: "I have this fear that it could be some Russian operation, too, designed to do what's happening now. More of this -- so in some ways we should not rule out -- it is dividing us."
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.
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.
No one who follows MSNBC would be at all surprised that the Republicans who appear regularly as analysts on the blatantly liberal news network would trash Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore after his primary victory yesterday, but MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace had one of the most bizarre responses as she actually claimed that some of his more controversial statements are too "abhorrent" to even be shown on television.
The Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity was in New Hampshire on Tuesday to look into the state’s same-day voting system. And in the wake of their inquiries, the liberals of MSNBC were up in arms with claims of voter suppression and denials of voter fraud existing at all. But Commentary magazine Editor John Podhoretz laid out the facts regarding the reality of voter fraud during MSNBC’s MTP Daily.
Jim Acosta’s increasingly infamous shootout on immigration with Stephen Miller on Wednesday drew criticism from many, even on the set of Morning Joe. John Podhoretz, editor of Commentary Magazine, offered a blistering statement of Acosta’s performance declaring, “I agree with him, but he's destroying his own argument with his comportment.” Scarborough acknowledged as much and tepidly offered the suggestion that, “maybe we shouldn't have TVs in the press room after all.”
When it comes to understanding Jewish neo-cons, Chris Matthews doesn't know a bagel from a hole in the ground . . . Speaking on MSNBC after Marco Rubio announced the suspension of his campaign, Matthews claimed that neo-cons like Charles Krauthammer, Bill Kristol and John Podhoretz will find Ted Cruz unacceptable and will instead support Hillary Clinton.
Let's put it this way: the day any of the above-named neo-cons endorses Clinton over Cruz, I will gladly send Matthews 10 lbs. of the finest lox and throw in a tub of first-class gefilte fish. Feh on your flawed prediction, Chris. Has Matthews been following any of the above lately? True, they detest Trump. But there's no reason they couldn't support Cruz. And Kristol has openly spoken of supporting a third-party conservative candidate if Trump's the GOP candidate. Speaking as something of a Jewish neo-con myself, this NewsBuster's odds of supporting Hillary over Cruz are approximately equal to those of me eating a ham sandwich at the Wailing Wall at high noon on Yom Kippur.
"There’s a reason you don’t know much about the complicated and confusing mess known as 'Fast and Furious,'” wrote conservative columnist John Podhoretz at the New York Post Thursday.
"The mainstream media have largely ignored this Obama administration scandal, which would have dominated mainstream front pages and homepages and programs for months had it all taken place under a Republican administration."
