On Saturday, counter-protesters descended on Boston, Massachusetts to try and stop a gathering billed as a “free-speech rally,” which was attended by some white nationalists. It didn’t take long for the radical leftist element known as Antifa to bring the chaos as they violently assaulted innocent people and the police. But come Sunday, both ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Sunday Today downplayed the violence Antifa brought with them.
The panel of Morning Joe erupted with outrage Monday morning over President Trump’s response to the Charlottesville rally. Willie Geist noted a “pattern” being at work, stating, “There's always this beat, this pause, this wink and he did it again on Saturday where it happened on many sides.” New York Times reporter Yamiche Alcindor agreed as she noted her own experiences in encountering pro-Trump white nationalists at the 2016 RNC convention. The criticism crescendoed, however, with Donny Deutsch, who denounced Trump as a “pathetic, sniveling man” before screaming, “No, he is a racist. He is a racist! Can we just say it once and for all?”
Saturday was marked by bloodshed in Charlottesville, Virginia after an apparent white nationalist plowed into a crowd of counter-protesters in a blatant attack. And on the morning after, NBC’s Sunday Today put President Trump in their sights as they unloaded on him while appearing to pin the blame for the attack on him. At one point even claiming he “enjoys” the support he gets from the bigots who were rallying in Virginia.
As many in the mainstream media continued to panic over President Trump’s “fire and fury” comments over North Korea, others in Congress began actively looking for ways to impede the President’s ability to protect the nation. One of these was Democratic Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts, who appeared on Thursday’s edition of Morning Joe to discuss these plans. Markey stated that he feared Trump’s comments had left “the impression that nuclear weapons are usable, and they're usable even if the United States is not attacked by nuclear weapons.” Markey continued on, with no pushback, explaining his intention, along with left-wing Congressman Ted Lieu, to transfer the power of the nuclear strike from the president to Congress.
The liberal media love Former Vice President Al Gore, the politician turned climate “crusader.” So much so that one of the biggest media companies in the nation — Viacom — is throwing its massive weight behind his new movie. That means Viacom’s “approximately 700 million global subscribers” will be inundated with global warming propaganda to prop up Gore’s Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, which was already being distributed by Viacom’s Paramount brand. Expect the $14-billion company’s other outlets like MTV, VH1, CMT, BET, Comedy Central, Spike and even Nickelodeon to heat up your cable box pushing the flawed documentary and climate alarmism.
On Tuesday, the hosts and correspondents of NBC’s Today could not contain their excitement as they gloated over the failure of the Republican Senate health care bill. “For seven years Republican lawmakers have vowed to overturn ObamaCare, but this morning their latest plan has come to a screeching halt,” proclaimed fill-in co-host Willie Geist.
In a fawning two-part interview with former Vice President Al Gore on Monday’s NBC Today, fill-in co-host Willie Geist sympathized with the Democrat’s alarmist environmental crusade and promoted his new film, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power. However, absent from the conversation was any mention of the numerous errors, inaccuracies, and false predictions made in Gore’s first documentary, An Inconvenient Truth.
To the absolute shock of most in the liberal media, President Trump was the one to bring up Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election during his meeting with Vladimir Putin on Saturday. In the lead up to Trump’s foreign trip to the G20 summit, many in the liberal media were claiming that Trump wouldn’t bring up Russia’ interference at all. But after finding out that he, in fact, did, they then switched to questioning whose account they should believe. “So, what are we to believe without an independent confirmation of either,” questioned NBC Anchor Willie Geist on Sunday Today.
A new trip oversees by President Trump brought renewed criticism from the media as he levied criticism at his predecessor, specifically the Obama administration's poor handling of Russian hacking during the 2016 election. The subsequent reaction by the cast of Morning Joe on Thursday was laughable as they decried the commander-in-chief attacking “a former president on foreign soil.” Apparently, everyone there had seemingly forgotten about Barack Obama’s infamous ‘apology tour’ at the start of his presidency.
Monday’s Morning Joe was, sadly, absent of Joe and Mika along with their normal crazy antics, but media hysteria ensued on the set, regardless. The hyperventilation that occurred in the room over the President’s WrestleMania tweet was so great that an oxygen tank probably should’ve been brought in at some point. With a dead serious tone, Willie Geist began by asking the panelists, “Did you perceive that tweet as a threat of violence against the press?” What followed afterwards was a panic-stricken discussion with references ranging from Greg Gianforte to Trump’s “minions” to America “leaving the reservation” as far as the world was concerned.
What NBC’s Willie Geist spun as a rundown of the political echo chambers in America on Sunday Today, quickly devolved into a condemnation of the rise of conservative media. “Fake news is a favorite term, as you know, of President Trump. What you consider real and fake in many cases has become a question of where you're sitting and who you're listening to,” declared Geist at the start of the segment. He ignored the fact that the term was first used to describe stories about Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election.
During a panel discussion on Monday’s NBC Today the hosts and pundits all agreed that President Trump would almost certainly commit perjury if he ever testified under oath in the Russia investigation. The group of liberal journalists were eager to convict Trump even while acknowledging that former President Bill Clinton actually got away with the crime.
