Even though the next presidential election won’t be held for more than three years, Donald Trump’s campaign staff is already hard at work, including the production of a 30-second television advertisement entitled “Let President Trump Do His Job.” It doesn’t take long for the ad to attack the Republican official’s “enemies” in both the mainstream media and Congress.
Hypocritical MSNBC host Joe Scarborough is now demanding that Republican Senators stand up and fight Donald Trump, insisting that they call the President “dishonest.” Yet, the very same Scarborough previously compared Trump to Ronald Reagan and called attacks on his honesty “vicious.”
After the all-night battle over the GOP’s attempt to repeal parts of ObamaCare, that ended in failure early Friday morning, MSNBC couldn’t stop gushing over the “maverick” Republican whose casting vote against the bill was the lynchpin that sealed the deal. Senator John McCain was one of the three Republicans who voted against their own party’s bill, and the liberal news network couldn’t stop praising him for defecting from the Republicans plan to repeal ObamaCare.
The set of Morning Joe became chaotic Tuesday morning as the President’s tweets finally drove co-host Joe Scarborough off the deep end. The incident occurred after the President seemingly tweeted out a response to the panel criticizing acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. What followed was a confused and disturbed rant by Scarborough which seemed to trouble even those around him. At its end, Scarborough frantically begged the President to cease watching the show yelling out, “I am 100 percent serious! He needs to stop watching this show!”
The cast of Morning Joe set their freakout level to def-con red in the wake of Donald Trump’s not-so-secretive dinner meeting with Vladimir Putin. “I’m not trying to make this look sinister,” a panicked Mika Brzezinski exclaimed frantically, “I'm not sure who is. We're just wondering what happened there.” An indignant Joe Scarborough deceivingly declared, “I don’t know what to say,” before going on to, disappointingly, say quite a bit on the matter. However, Mark Halperin arrived to steal the show in the end by stating, “If President Obama had done this exact thing and had not disclosed, there would be tons of questions about it.”
President Donald Trump has a knack for getting under the liberal media’s skin and driving them into hyperbolic criticisms of just about everything he does. Whether it was tweeting out a goofy .gif of him wrestling CNN to the ground, or delivering a patriotic speech overseas the press couldn’t contain their overreactions. The following is a collection of worst media and celebrity outbursts from the past few weeks:
Glenn Thrush, a reporter for the New York Times, stated during an appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe program on Thursday, July 13, that people in the media “can’t do that” when it comes to boycotting White House press briefings because “we are all members of the White House Correspondents’ Association.” “Right,” co-host Joe Scarborough stated. “You’ve got to be there in case news does break.”
President Trump once referred to the health care bill passed by the House as "mean." So how should we characterize his remarks about MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski? The president of the United States, reacting to her criticism of him, claimed Brzezinski was "bleeding" from a facelift when he saw her last New Year's Eve at his Florida resort. He further described her as being "dumb as a rock." That's worse than mean. It's cruel.
The reporter for The Sentinel, a Maryland newspaper out of Montgomery County had suddenly claimed center stage after White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had taken on the White House press corps for what she called a “barrage of fake news.” At that point Karem, clearly no Trump fan, delivered this tirade:
During an exclusive interview on Friday, June 30, with Peter Hasson, associate editor of the Daily Caller website, White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway slammed the Cable News Network for having an "anti-Trump office culture." Conway's remarks came after the release of a video that shows CNN producer Jimmy Carr calling her an “awful woman, you know, the blonde" who “looks like she got hit with a shovel.”
Appearing as a guest on Friday's New Day, CNN political commentator Carl Bernstein repeatedly attacked the Trump administration as a "malignant presidency" and asserted that it is "not functioning."
After Thursday’s network evening newscasts devoted 28 times more coverage to Donald Trump’s offensive tweets than to important immigration reform legislation, on Friday, the morning shows on ABC, NBC, and CBS offered even more lopsided reporting. Combined, ABC’s Good Morning America, NBC’s Today, and CBS This Morning devoted a staggering 52 times the amount of coverage to the President’s social media attack than to Kate’s Law passing the House.
