Robert Costa of the Washington Post joined MSNBC Live guest host Kasie Hunt on Monday to talk about the coronavirus. After mentioning that two Republican members of Congress, Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Paul Gosar are self-quarantining out of an abundance of caution after someone at CPAC tested positive for the virus. Costa claimed that only now that this has become personal, that conservatives taking the threat of COVID-19 seriously.
What a difference a day makes! Yesterday, the Morning Joe crew was insisting that Mike Bloomberg immediately drop out of the race to clear the field for Biden and prevent a Sanders nomination. Today, after airing Bloomberg's wide-ranging interview with Kasie Hunt, Morning Joe was overflowing with praise for him!
During Sunday’s Meet the Press on NBC, newly hired MSNBC anchor Joshua Johnson (formerly with NPR) had a candid moment when he admitted the media took part in helping the DNC whip votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016, and implored his colleagues not to lobby for certain candidates in the 2020 Democratic primary.
Following his vote to convict President Trump on the impeachment charge of abuse of power, which ultimately failed, NBC Nightly News made their feelings clear and gave Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) a hero’s welcome. In back-to-back segments, they praised him for “voting his conscience over his party” and dubbed him “the president of the Republican resistance to Donald Trump.”
NBC News reacted Tuesday night with disdain, disgust, and arguably venom toward President Donald Trump’s 2020 State of the Union address, kvetching that it was “campaign-like,” “confrontation,” “extraordinarily political,” “incredibly raucous,” “partisan,” and responsible for having created a “poisonous...atmosphere” in the House chamber. And of course, there was plenty of invective hurled at both the President and conservative talk radio host and icon Rush Limbaugh, who received the Presidential Medal of Freedom a day after his cancer diagnosis.
With fewer and fewer things to talk about on Monday considering the dumpster fire that was the Iowa caucuses, NBC News Now brought on Michael Bloomberg campaign manager Kevin Sheekey to hammer him from the left, including concerns that his presence alongside the far-left Democrats could create “a knock down, drag out war that simply tears the party apart.”
It is always a sad day for the media when they realize that the Republican Party that exists in the real world is nothing like the one that exists on their large impeachment panels. MSNBC congressional correspondent Kasie Hunt had that revelation on Wednesday where she lamented that there was no John McCain-esque figure to defy President Trump and Mitch McConnell on whether to call additional witnesses.
During MSNBC’s 11:00 a.m. ET hour impeachment trial coverage on Friday, correspondent Kasie Hunt engaged in some mind reading as she proclaimed that “we all know” Republican senators “are horrified by what the President is doing.” The comment came as she and anchor Chris Matthews hailed Democratic House manager Adam Schiff for being at his “absolute best.”
In a gushing interview with the three female Democratic impeachment managers, aired on Friday’s Today show, NBC Capitol Hill correspondent Kasie Hunt sounded like an adoring fan as she proclaimed: “Congresswomen Zoe Lofgren, Val Demings, and Sylvia Garcia are making history.” They all chatted about how “women are smarter than men” for backing the removal of President Trump from office.
Despite the fact Iran had killed a U.S. contractor in Iraq, staged an assault on the U.S. Embassy there, and launched a missile attack on U.S. forces, House Democrats were so overcome with their hatred for President Trump that they voted Thursday to restrict his powers to react to hostilities from the regime. Of course, that meant the liberal media had something else to rally behind seeing as their buddies in Iran had just killed nearly 176 innocent people by blowing a passenger jet out the sky.
On Sunday's Kasie D.C. show, MSNBC host Kasie Hunt followed in the footsteps of her new-mom colleague Katy Tur in returning from pregnancy leave and lobbying on air for a federal law in the U.S. to require employees receive paid parental leave.
Hours after President Trump blasted NBC White House correspondent Peter Alexander for being “the most biased reporter” in the press corps, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd predictably rushed to his colleague’s defense during MSNBC’s MTP Daily Wednesday afternoon: “There is nothing better for a journalist than to get attacked by Donald Trump.”
