Appearing on NBC’s Today show Tuesday to exclusively reveal Time’s Person of the Year, the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Edward Felsenthal first discussed the runners up, which included President Trump. After lamenting how the President “showed the weaknesses in our system,” the journalist happily declared that 2018 “was a year when the system fought back.”
According to recent court filings, President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen told federal prosecutors that he was directed by the then-candidate to pay hush money to two women to help sway the outcome of the 2016 election. Even though Cohen admitted he had previously lied under oath to Congress, ABC and NBC spent part of their Sunday morning news programs suggesting it was all over for the Trump administration.
On Morning Joe, commenting on remarks by Rudy Giuliani that could be seen as critical of President Trump, Mika Brzezinski twice asks at "what time" Giuliani crafted his remarks. She twice suggests that the explanation for Rudy's candor could lie in the fact that they came "late in the day." Back in 2016, at a time when Trump was considering Giuliani as a possible selection for Secretary of State, Mika hinted that Rudy had been "drinking a lot" during a meeting with Trump.
On Morning Joe, Willie Geist approvingly quotes a tweet by MSNBC legal analyst Daniel Goldman, who wrote that comparing President Trump to mob bosses is unfair to mob bosses, because they "are far smarter and way more savvy and discreet than Trump." Geist adds that, unlike the President, mob bosses "can't pardon the witnesses they tamper with."
Something unusual happened on Morning Joe, Tuesday. A conservative got the opportunity to fight back against the accepted liberal assumptions, encouraging “skepticism" about a new governmental global warming report that makes projections over the next 100 years.
On Morning Joe, Willie Geist says that President Trump would like nothing more than for House Dems to launch an impeachment investigation. Geist says it would be "the Kavanaugh situation multiplied times a thousand."
The day after an anti-Semite killed 11 people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and a week of political violence, NBC’s Sunday Today exploited the opportunity by trying to tie it all to President Trump. On top of that, the network suggested that the only hope to stop the violence was to send Trump a message at the ballot box by voting against him and the GOP.
Less than 24 hours after several packages containing pipe bombs were intercepted on their way to prominent Democrats and the headquarters of CNN, a similar package was found on its way to one of the homes of liberal actor Robert De Niro Thursday morning. On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, anchor Willie Geist broke the news, and contributor John Heilemann made it an opportunity to blame conservative media as responsible for making anti-Trump critics a “target.”
It was like election night 2016 all over again for the liberal media hit squads that tried desperately to sink Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation. The liberal media were so incensed that they were describing it as one of the darker times in American history and started to call the court’s legitimacy into question. During NBC’s Sunday Today, host Willie Geist was so confused by their radical tactics failing that his first question was simple: “what just happened over the last month?”
On Tuesday's Morning Joe show on MSNBC, regular panel members invited a liberal activist to bash the Trump administration over the treatment of illegal immigrants at the border. The group was even true to form as an MSNBC panel by excluding any questions or commentary from a right-leaning perspective in spite of having one contributor who actually had a conservative history prior to joining the liberal news network.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough expresses real skepticism about the claims of Julie Swetnick, the Michael Avenatti client. Among other things, Joe asks: "who would continually go to high school parties where women were being gang-raped--and first of all keep going to those parties?"
After Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and her Democratically connected legal team gave the Senate Judiciary Committee a week-long runaround, the parties finally agreed on a tentative hearing scheduled for Thursday. And despite all of Ford’s named witnesses telling the committee they had no recollection of the party where the alleged sexual assault took place, NBC Political Director Chuck Todd couldn’t see any way for Supreme Court Nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh to look good coming out of it.
