During Monday’s edition of MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle, reporter Mariana Atencio interviewed some members of the Santa Fe High School baseball team, including two who got shot during Friday’s mass shooting that killed ten people. Atencio repeatedly tried to get them to become gun control warriors like many of the teens who survived the recent mass shooting in Parkland, Florida.
In the past week, several networks have repeated questionable claims that an eight-month-old Palestinian baby was killed by Israeli tear gas in the Gaza Strip. And MSNBC's Ayman Mohyeldin even went so far as to twice repeat a discredited story that a paraplegic in a wheel chair was killed by Israeli snipers without noting that the IDF already disputed the story in March.
ABC, MSNBC, The New York Times and other media outlets on Wednesday and Thursday distorted Donald Trump’s attack on MS-13, the brutal gang of illegal criminals, into a slur on “undocumented immigrants.” On MSNBC, the network graphic misled: “Trump Calls Some Undocumented Immigrants ‘Animals’ in Rant.”
MSNBC personalities seem to think that protests can feature participants throwing bombs and rocks and still be "peaceful" at the same time. On Monday's Velshi and Ruhle show, MSNBC hosts Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle opened their show noting that several acts of violence had been perpetrated. But, just two minutes later, they complained about Jared Kushner accusing protesters of "provoking violence" as the MSNBC hosts seemed to think the riots had been "peaceful."
During Friday’s edition of Morning Joe on MSNBC, frequent panelist Donnie Deutsch expressed his displeasure with Stormy Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti appearing so often on cable news shows. “He feels like he’s ‘jumping the shark’ a little bit,” Deutsch stated. “You almost get the feeling he’s already auditioning” for CNN President Jeff Zucker and MSNBC boss Phil Griffin to set up “his next TV spot.”
During her 9:00 a.m. ET hour show on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle and her panel of anti-Trump guests cheered Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti as “a beast” who was “brilliant” at garnering media attention, even hailing him as “the savior of the republic” for his latest revelations that the pundits thought could take down the President.
On Wednesday's MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle, liberal contributor Eddie Glaude complained that Americans are "okay with people dying" as the group discussed President Donald Trump decision to withdraw from the nuclear deal with Iran.
Stephanie Ruhle lost her grip on reality Tuesday morning when she attempted to draw a contrast between First Lady Melania Trump’s new “Be Best” initiative for children and President Trump’s policies. The MSNBC host’s diatribe featured the absurd claim that enforcing existing immigration laws and cutting taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood would hurt children.
Appearing on Monday’s MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle, left-wing New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof promoted his latest piece for the paper, warning of a media “addiction” to covering the “car wreck” of Donald Trump’s presidency. He confessed that journalists “blew it in 2016" and feared the President’s agenda was being implemented while his press colleagues were being distracted by “the latest shiny object.”
Appearing on MSNBC Live With Velshi & Ruhle on Friday to promote his new book, Us vs. Them: The Failure of Globalism, foreign policy expert and Eurasia Group President Ian Bremmer, a frequent critic of President Trump, went out of his way to credit the President for the major diplomatic breakthrough with North Korea. He even admonished those refusing to give credit where credit was due.
As former Planned Parenthood president and pro-abortion activist Cecile Richards appeared as a guest on Tuesday's MSNBC Live, host Stephanie Ruhle practically begged her to do more to convince Americans that Planned Parenthood is not really "the abortion store" as she ranted about pro-lifers painting it as such.
On Monday morning, MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle read a brief suggesting "serious hypocrisy" on the part of the NRA for barring guns from a speech by Vice President Mike Pence because the pro-gun group generally supports allowing law-abiding citizens to bring guns into most public places. It seemed to be lost on the MSNBC host that the Secret Service will be providing security for the event, so the normal arguments for allowing the average person to be armed for self-defense are not as relevant.
