Not exactly the top authority when it comes to sober analysis, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews teamed up with panelists on Wednesday night to deem President Trump as mentally unstable while a guest hailed Hillary Clinton’s book excerpt about debating Trump as “remarkable.”
During Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, during discussions of the white racist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, White House advisors were repeatedly referred to by panel members as "Nazis" or "white supremacists." And in one segment, as the group fretted over Colin Kaepernick's outcast status in the NFL, ESPN columnist William C. Rhoden oddly claimed that "a lot of players" in both the NFL and Major League Baseball "have kind of support from these people -- the Nazis or white supremacists," as host Joy Reid responded in agreement.
After all three broadcast networks fretted Wednesday morning over the Justice Department taking steps to challenge Affirmative Action policies that may discriminate against white students, on her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show, anchor Andrea Mitchell worried the move had the “potential to reopen long decided cases of Affirmative Action, which is alarming civil rights groups and academic institutions across the country.”
There is probably no one in Congress more openly opposed to President Donald Trump than Maxine Waters. We have already seen that she has called for Trump's impeachment. Therefore when even Waters there is not yet any evidence at this time of Trump-Russia collusion, that is certainly significant. That is why it is astonishing that Washington Post opinion writer Jonathan Capehart left that significant admission made during his own podcast off his column about it.
At the top of her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Tuesday, anchor Andrea Mitchell enthusiastically touted liberal protesters showing up to congressional town hall meetings: “Republican Congress members getting an earful back home as they prepare to rollout their plan to repeal ObamaCare.” However, back in 2010, Mitchell was frightened by such “angry” displays by Tea Party demonstrators attending public meetings with Democratic lawmakers.
President Barack Obama finally reached the lowest level of unemployment during his presidency; that is at the end of his presidency. Liberal journalists touted his success, while some knocked President-Elect Donald Trump. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Dec. 2, that the economy added 178,000 jobs in November. The same reported showed the unemployment rate dropped to 4.6 percent, a low not seen since 2007.
It would appear that being a Washington Post columnist means never having to say you're sorry — even if you are a member of the paper's editorial board.
Beginning on July 7, the Post's Jonathan Capehart set out to advance the agenda of a group called Freedom for All Americans (FFAA), an outfit which believes it has proven that there is, in Capehart's words, "a 'vast right-wing conspiracy' out to deny" lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans "their humanity and dignity." In a follow-up column, Capehart commmitted a pathetic error which the paper has failed to appropriately correct.
Hillary Clinton became the Democratic Party’s nominee for president of the United States last Thursday, and soon after her rival Bernie Sanders announced he was returning to the Senate as an Independent. “I was elected as an independent so I'll stay two years more as an independent,” he said to the press. But this decision raised the ire of MSNBC’s Al Sharpton on PoliticsNation, Sunday, “After all Sanders became a Democrat to be in their primary, to be in their debates, but now he’s leaving the party.”
“Clueless for $400.” This past week Jeopardy! aired its “Power Players” shows recorded in Washington, DC back on Saturday, April 9. Viewers were treated to some embarrassing moments for several prominent journalists, including CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Kate Bolduan, who were seemingly ill-informed about relatively recent events in the news. The video below shows five of the biggest flubs, focused just on current events/recent history questions.
On Hardball Monday night, host Chris Matthews brought on the Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart to discuss Donald Trump attacking Hillary Clinton, saying she was “an enabler” to Bill Clinton’s affairs while he was President. Matthews asked if this line of attack was “a mistake” that would turn off new voters. Capehart responded by stating that this rhetoric would only appeal to Trump’s “white, male, and angry” base.
President Obama essentially "phoned it in" Tuesday with his lackluster response to the terrorist attacks in Brussels, MSNBC host Chris Matthews suggested on the Tuesday edition of Hardball. "Let's talk about President Obama's behavior today," the usual enthusiastic Obama-backer Matthews said, contending: "The president was off base today."
On her 11 a.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Wednesday, host Tamron Hall claimed “the GOP is planning actively to challenge” Donald Trump’s candidacy “to get him out of the way of the nomination” and predicted doom for Republicans if Trump were to lose the nomination during a contested convention.
