Jon Meacham apparently isn't paying attention to the liberal message (for now) to NOT mention that if the Democrats win back the House this November, they will impeach President Trump. Perhaps historian and failed Newsweek editor Meacham is so eager for that impeachment that he just couldn't hold back on Monday's Morning Joe.
Monday’s Morning Joe was firing on all cylinders, full of liberal hot takes and hypocrisy from their faux conservatives and Republicans. Chief among them was co-host Joe Scarborough, who demanded that Republicans defending and enabling President Trump “not only owe an apology to this nation, they owe an apology to their children,” which is amusing considering Scarborough’s personal history with the President.
Since Sunday night, the liberal media have been haranguing network affiliate owner Sinclair Broadcast Group (SBG) for a new “must-run” promo that warned against “biased and false news.” The two have slammed it as Trump-backed “state-run TV” on par with the former Soviet outlet Pravda that's “chilling,” frightening” and “a really embarrassing moment for journalism.” A NewsBusters study examined the two cable networks on April 2 found that CNN spent 76 minutes and 42 seconds while MSNBC hyperventilated for nearly twice as long at 134 minutes and 42 seconds.
At the top of Monday’s Morning Joe, the MSNBC show ripped a new promo on network affiliates owned by Sinclair Broadcast Group denouncing “false news” as a “chilling,” “frightening,” and “Pravda”-like “propaganda clip” doing President Trump’s bidding. Of course, it was without any sense of irony in how they licked the Obama administration’s boots and serve as home for the Resistance.
As historian and MSNBC contributor Jon Meacham appeared as a guest on Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, he repeatedly made references to racist public figures or groups from history like George Wallace and the KKK as he discussed modern-day political battles and President Donald Trump. At one point, he lectured about American history: "But the forces the President embodies -- and the forces that he marshaled and managed to become President -- are perennial ones. The American spirit isn't just about Martin Luther King Jr.-- it's also about the Klan. And the battle is between those two."
“A hero comes from need.” So said MSNBC's Joe Scarborough on Tuesday, during a bizarre Morning Joe segment in which panelists exchanged heartfelt soliloquies and longed for a savior to deliver them from the “disaster” of President Donald Trump.
After nearly three hours of hyperventilating about President Trump’s purported comments last Thursday describing Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries as “shitholes,” Monday’s Morning Joe brought on author and NBC Political Analyst Anand Giridharadas to discuss Trump’s “radical,” “reactionary,” and “racist” comments. Predictably, Giridharadas did not have many kind words for the President, declaring that it was, in fact, America that was being turned into the “real s-hole” by Trump.
On Wednesday's MSNBC Live with Craig Melvin, MSNBC contributor and historian Jon Meacham made no pretense of being unbiased as he used a Winston Churchill quote to declare Democrat Doug Jones's victory over Roy Moore in Alabama to be "the right thing," and added that "that's probably good news for the country inarguably."
On Wednesday’s Morning Joe, the panel spent a great deal of time covering the recent allegations made by a Democratic Congresswoman from Florida that President Trump was disrespectful to the wife of an American soldier who was recently killed in Niger. Host Joe Scarborough and frequent guest Jon Meacham used the story as an opportunity to attack Christians and church leaders from the South who support Trump as soulless hypocrites.
On Wednesday’s Morning Joe, while discussing Roy Moore’s victory in the Republican Alabama Senate primary, Joe Scarborough and Jon Meacham mused about the possibility of a ‘chaotic,’ ‘left-wing,’ ‘populist’ political movement coming about in the future in response to politicians like Moore. In the process, everyone on the panel apparently forgot about the existence of Antifa, Black Lives Matter, or even the insurgent candidacy of Bernie Sanders last year in the Democratic presidential primaries.
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, host Bill Maher; MSNBC contributor and historian Jon Meacham; and CNN host Fareed Zakaria all admitted that it is not necessarily "racist" for one to have concerns about whether immigrants are assimilating properly into American culture after Maher brought up Zakaria's recent article criticizing Democrats on the subject. After Zakaria made an argument similar to his recent commentary, Meacham -- a former Newsweek editor -- noted that assimilation by immigrants has always been a legitimate topic of concern before blaming Republicans for making it look "racist" to have such a debate.
President Donald Trump has only been in office six months, and MSNBC host Brian Williams is already asking if he is a "lame-duck President." On Wednesday's The 11th Hour with Brian Williams, during a discussion about the latest news on President Trump with presidential historians Michael Beschloss and Jon Meacham, Williams turned to Meacham and posed: "Jon, if you put it all together, legislative failures, being forced to sign the Russia sanctions veto-proof vote in Congress, and where his polling is, is this a lame-duck President?"
