On Monday, all three network morning shows gushed over the left-wing activism on display during Sunday night’s BET Awards. In particular, the hosts and correspondents on NBC, ABC, and CBS were enthralled by Grey’s Anatomy actor Jesse Williams launching into a racially-charged screed against “this invention called whiteness [that] uses and abuses” African Americans.
This just in: Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren performed live in a rock concert in Cincinnati, Ohio on Monday. According to their devoted groupies at MSNBC, the concert served as an “audition” for Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is being vetted for vice president. The two women entered the stage “hand in hand, locked in arms” as they readied the crowd for their performance.
It came as no surprise that when reporting on this year's playoffs to determine which team will be crowned the National Basketball Association champions, MSNBC host Tamron Hall instead focused on two players who are “prominent Democrats” and engage in community events when not on the court.
“Tonight, politics will hit the basketball court with the beginning of the NBA finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers,” Hall noted at the start of the segment. “Stephen Curry is going up against LeBron James, both of whom are prominent Democrats who’ve supported the Obamas in major social media campaigns.”
In an utterance that could only be described as outrageous and irresponsible, MSNBC hosts Tamron Hall and Thomas Roberts went unchallenged by their combined four guests Monday morning and afternoon as they claimed that Bill Clinton’s voluminous instances of marital infidelity were just “alleged affairs” or “alleged misconduct” in context of Donald Trump invoking them over the weekend.
After Ted Cruz criticized Donald Trump for a National Enquirer-inspired accusation that Cruz’s father Rafael was linked to the JFK assassination, MSNBC host Tamron Hall actually had the audacity to ask “Is this a man unraveling?” During the 11 am hour of MSNBC’s The Place for Politics, on Tuesday, Hall brought on Republican strategist Susan Del Percio to dissect Cruz’s press conference where the Texas Senator defended not only his father but his wife
MSNBC’s Tamron Hall on Wednesday fumed over Carly Fiorina endorsing Ted Cruz, deriding the businesswoman as a “failure” and “infamous.” Hall talked to Cruz spokesman Ron Nehring and spewed liberal talking points: “When she was a candidate, Carly Fiorina's jobs record was questioned, laying off American workers, outsourcing, being a failed businesswoman and a failed candidate.”
MSNBC’s Tamron Hall on Monday blamed the “obstructionist” Ted Cruz for “birthing” Donald Trump by supporting an inflexible Congress. The cable anchor grilled a Cruz supporter, former Congressman Jack Kingston, on the Tea Party’s responsibility. After Kingston referred to the Texas senator as a “disruption” to the status quo, Hall demanded, “But the disruption you refer to and how we process what the American people see as an ineffective Congress, when you think about Senator Cruz on the Senate floor, holding up business.”
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.
The hosts of MSNBC Live on Friday thought it was “crazy” that some young women aren’t supporting Hillary Clinton to be the first woman president. Chris Jansing and Tamron Hall marveled at a New Hampshire focus group that included young, college-age females. Hall proclaimed, “The big headline for me in the randomly selected group of people, the young women there did not care that Hillary Clinton could be the first woman president.” A shocked Jansing retorted, “That's crazy to me. It really is.”
While both NBC’s Today and ABC’s Good Morning America found the time on Thursday to devote minute-long segments to First Lady Michelle Obama rapping about kids going to college, neither morning show bothered to mention President Obama’s strategy or lack thereof to combat radical Islamic terrorism in the wake of the San Bernardino attacks.
MSNBC Live with Tamron Hall had Chuck Todd on for two segments related to the terrorist attack in San Bernardino on Wednesday. When confronted with the idea that this could be terrorism, as many labeled the Colorado Springs shooting, Todd hesitantly said, “I don't know if we want to go down that road, Tamron, just yet. I think, I think let's let all this play out. But I have, I have very, I have some fears of where this conversation goes, if this turns into being an American Muslim, an American citizen, and the investigation comes out that this is a radicalized situation and all this stuff, I think the consequences on our politics could be very ugly and very negative.”
While promoting his new movie, Chi-raq, about gun violence in Chicago, during the 9 a.m. ET hour on Tuesday’s NBC Today, director Spike Lee claimed: “...it's easier for an African-American, a black person, to be President of the United States than to be president of a Hollywood studio or TV network cable.”
