Jon Meacham got one thing right. On today's Morning Joe, he said that the heads of any conservatives listening to him would blow up over their Wheaties. What was Meacham's remark that was so explosive to any right-thinking listener? His prediction that someday, we'll look back and realize that Al Gore was . . . "a prophetic voice" on the environment.
Responding to the President’s latest self-inflicted error Tuesday by questioning the loyalty of Jewish voters to their faith, MSNBC’s Hardball all but memory holed the whole reason the kerfuffle arose to begin with, which was the blatant anti-Semitism from Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
In the midst of President Trump visiting with victims of the mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso on Wednesday, on MSNBC, presidential historian and regular liberal pundit Jon Meacham bemoaned Trump’s response to the attacks and even derided his Monday White House address denouncing them as a “hostage video.”
A quick flashback to election night of 2016 would bring to the forefront memories of an earth shattering defeat for the liberal media and an ensuing shock. There is no need to reminisce on this moment if you are an avid viewer of Hardball with Chris Matthews where the meltdown over President Trump’s occupancy in office persists on a nightly basis. Monday night’s episode was no different.
Former Newsweek editor Jon Meacham appeared with his co-author/country musician Tim McGraw on CBS's Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night to discuss their book on how popular songs influenced American history, from the founding to the present day. Meacham thrilled the reliably anti-Trump audience by insisting that "we don't build monuments to people who build walls and shut doors."
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough jokes about Paul Manafort being incarcerated at the infamous hellhole of Rikers Island in NYC. And thus it was that on today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough joked about Paul Manfort being confined at Rikers Island, which has been described as a "hellhole," as here, here, and "the most notorious jail in America."
On MSNBC’s Deadline: White House Wednesday, host Nicolle Wallace weighed in on President Trump’s “cringeworthy” trip to the United Kingdom and, naturally, Wallace and her guests (including two former Obama administration officials), trashed Brexit and President Trump’s “America First” m antra as “xenophobic.” And for good measure, they called into question his mental health.
On Wednesday night, controversy broke over President Trump’s Memorial Day Weekend visit to Japan when Wall Street Journal White House reporter Rebecca Ballhaus tweeted that the White House wanted the U.S.S. John McCain “out of sight” for Trump’s visit. She also reported that “a tarp was hung over the ship’s name” and that sailors “who wear caps bearing the ship’s name were given the day off.” It soon went viral and refueled President Trump’s longstanding feud with late Senator John McCain.
Morning Joe glorifies Jimmy Carter on the occasion of his becoming the oldest living former president ever. And Joe Scarborough dismisses Carter's failures as either "beyond his control," or the result of mistakes by the Democratic party that "fell on his shoulders" in the 1980 election.
After his appearance on Wednesday's show, Morning Joe goes gaga for hard-left presidential candidate 'Mayor Pete' Buttigieg. Mika Brzezinski claims, "I was surprised by the number of Republicans who reached out to me, saying, I'm going to support him. Because I'm looking for someone."
As part of MSNBC’s never-ending quest to find worst-case scenarios in the hope of bringing down Donald Trump, presidential historian Jon Meacham on Thursday yet again repeated the concept that the GOP occupant of the White House might be “in thrall to a foreign power” while referring to Russia. Meacham went on to compare the situation with the 1790s, when Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson accused Secretary of Treasury Alexander Hamilton of being too loyal to Great Britain even though America had declared its independence from that nation years earlier.
During Tuesday's edition of The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell, the eponymous host asked historian Jon Meacham to address a tweet he sent out earlier in the evening, featuring a quote from Georgia Governor Clifford Walker at a 1924 Ku Klux Klan Convention, who argued that America should "build a wall of steel, a wall as high as Heaven." Meacham concluded the tweet with the hashtag #PastIsPrologue, an obvious attempt to compare President Trump to a Ku Klux Klan sympathizer.
