It was like election night 2016 all over again for the liberal media hit squads that tried desperately to sink Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation. The liberal media were so incensed that they were describing it as one of the darker times in American history and started to call the court’s legitimacy into question. During NBC’s Sunday Today, host Willie Geist was so confused by their radical tactics failing that his first question was simple: “what just happened over the last month?”
The economy is booming but did you know that these are the final days of Donald Trump's presidency? That is the absurd premise put forward on MSNBC's The 11th Hour with Brian Williams on Wednesday by that master of hyperbole, Jon Meacham, the man at the helm of Newsweek as it sank like the Titanic.
In response to serial fabulist Brian Williams conjuring up images of Richard Nixon "three scotches deep in the White House in the evening doing strange things walking down the hallway," Meacham eagerly joined in with that "Final Days" imagery.
During two different cable news broadcasts on Friday morning, personalities compared President Trump to two different “strong men” dictators, apparently growing tired of the Hitler comparison. CNN senior political commentator and former Obama aide David Axelrod compared Trump to the Roman Emperor Nero while MSNBC’s Jon Meacham described him as “Stalinist.”
Impeachment seems to be on the mind of liberal historian Jon Meacham lately. In May Meacham predicted that a newly elected Democrat House will impeach President Donald Trump as a "season finale." Meacham's I-word obsession returned to Meacham on Tuesday's Morning Joe when he suggested that Trump somehow committed treason at the Helsinki Summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
During Wednesday’s edition of Morning Joe, historian Jon Meacham felt he had come up with the perfect explanation for President Trump’s tense relationships with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister Theresa May. Meacham asked “What’s the role of misogyny here?” He continued spouting talking points, asking “Does Merkel remind him of Hillary? Does that help explain the Theresa May issue? He does not have a particularly healthy relationship, it seems, with a lot of strong women.”
Liberal presidential historian and former Newsweek editor Jon Meacham was the guest at the end of Tuesday’s The View, where he fulfilled his duty in bashing President Trump in hyperbolic terms, something the anti-Trump hosts could appreciate.
While many in both the Democratic Party and the media have agreed that Congresswoman Maxine Waters hurt her party’s image on Sunday when she encouraged her supporters to aggressively confront members of the Trump administration, MSNBC’s contributors appeared not to have gotten the memo. Numerous guests on the cable network were reluctant on Monday to condemn Waters for her comments, with some, such as MSNBC political analyst Zerlina Maxwell, outright endorsing the Congresswoman’s stance: “Polite discourse is inappropriate when there are babies in cages.”
Appearing on MSNBC Live With Craig Melvin Thursday afternoon, journalist and presidential historian Jon Meacham lamented that Donald Trump’s presidency was “nasty, brutish, and longer than we would like.” He went on to wail that press was giving the president too much attention and becoming a victim of “the longest abusive relationship in American history.”
Liberal historian and former Newsweek editor Jon Meacham compares Donald Trump to former Democrat governor of Alabama George Wallace on Wednesday's Morning Joe show.
Glum is a word that described the reaction on MSNBC to the North Korean summit. With an annoyed tone, the Morning Joe hosts of Tuesday mocked the chances for success in the summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un. MSNBC guest Jon Meacham even denied that the summit was “historic.”
Tuesday’s New York Times led with Julie Hirschfeld Davis and Maggie Haberman rushing to tar President Trump’s criticism of the “deep state” and the mainstream press as corrosive, paranoid, and conspiratorial (while unwittingly strengthening his case) in “Trump’s Embrace Of ‘Spygate” Plot Sows Suspicions -- Eroding Public Trust -- Conspiracy Theories Are Brought From Fringes to the Oval Office.” The text box didn’t offer much benefit of the doubt: “Ex-aides cite political opportunism and the president’s paranoia.”
You could almost hear the strains of "Give Me that Old Time Religion" in the background as the Morning Joe crew used religion to blast Trump on Thursday. In addition to Holy Joe Scarborough leading the charge was guest Eddie Glaude who recently went on an anti-Israel tirade as well as sanctimonious Jon Meacham who declared that anyone who supports Trump is committing idolatry.
