With President Trump’s overnight announcement to cancel the government’s consideration of his Doral property in Florida for the location for the G7 summit in 2020, the liberal media were reveling in what was another loss for the President. During NBC’s Sunday Today, host Willie Geist and Meet the Press moderator/NBC political director Chuck Todd were hyped up by what the latter described as the wobbliest he’s seen Republican support for Trump.
On the Morning Joe of September 17th, Adam Schiff told Sam Stein that his committee: "have not spoken directly with the whistleblower." If fact, the whistleblower had contacted the committee and they spoke. On today's Morning Joe, Stein said of Schiff's misrepresentation, "I will say, this puts him in some trouble. He clearly wasn't being forthright in that interview with us a couple weeks ago. And he should have been." Stein went on to downplay the importance of Schiff's untruth, saying the substance of the whistleblower's complaint is more important than the process by which it came to light.
http://info.mrc.org/stop-the-media-impeachment-crusadeDire talk of fascism, threats to democracy, constitutional crises, etc. are Morning Joe's everyday fare in the Age of Trump. But to the fevered proceedings, Willie Geist normally brings a welcome dose of equanimity. It was thus a shock to hear Willie of all people floating a dark scenario on today's show. He claimed that there's no one around the table or watching at home who thinks that President Trump will "go quietly" if he's impeached or defeated at the polls.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough is angry at the Democrat presidential contenders for having, in last night's debate, focused on the details dividing them regarding health care. He suggests that they should instead paint the bigger picture: "the Democratic Party supports universal healthcare as a right for all Americans! Donald Trump wants to destroy your right to having health care as an American! A guarantee of that health care." Later, Scarborough mistakenly suggests that Alex Trebek is the host of "Wheel of Fortune." Willie Geist politely points out that show's host is Pat Sajak.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough cites a poll showing that, in the wake of the first three Democrat debates, Republican voter ID has risen to equal that of Democrats. Scarborough blames it on the radical positions the Dems adopted in the debates, on issues from illegal immigration to healthcare to debt forgiveness. Willie Geist observes that Joe Biden has remained in the lead despite his stumbles because he has not gone into that radical territory.
Jon Meacham got one thing right. On today's Morning Joe, he said that the heads of any conservatives listening to him would blow up over their Wheaties. What was Meacham's remark that was so explosive to any right-thinking listener? His prediction that someday, we'll look back and realize that Al Gore was . . . "a prophetic voice" on the environment.
The domestic terrorist organization known as Antifa carried out attacks at a “right-wing” rally in Portland, Oregon on Saturday by targeting peaceful rally goers, police, and members of the press. As the liberal media have done in the past, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Sunday Today, carried water for the extreme left-wing terrorists by downplaying their actions and by suggesting they’re simply “counter-protesters”.
Looks like Epstein conspiracy theories are catnip for the Morning Joe gang. Two days ago, we noted that Joe Scarborough had tweeted out a bizarre theory based on Russsian involvement, and suggested that it was "bullshit" to label Epstein's death a suicide. The irony/hypocrisy of Scarborough's assertion was that he proceeded to condemn President Trump for having retweeted another theory.
Reacting to night one of CNN’s Democratic debate, on Wednesday’s Today show, NBC News political analysts and former Senator Claire McCaskill was relieved that the radical health care plans advocated by Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders were hammered by their fellow 2020 candidates. McCaskill also completely rejected any possibility of such extreme proposals ever becoming law.
Over the weekend, President Trump blasted Congressman Elijah Cummings (D) for having done “nothing” for his congressional district, which included a large portion of Baltimore, Maryland. Trump described it as “a disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess” that was “dangerous” and “filthy”. Of course, the liberal media led the Democratic Party choir in calling Trump’s attack “racist” while completely ignoring what the facts were on the ground.
There is perhaps no moment in Donald Trump’s presidency in which the media unnecessarily melted down more than in their coverage of President Trump’s Fourth of July “Salute to America” celebration. The event itself was a tribute to America’s military and the country’s history. It featured flyovers from all five branches of the military.
Over the weekend, President Trump attended the G-20 summit in Japan. “Controversy” broke out when a video went viral of the President’s daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump having an awkward-appearing conversation with French President Emmanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, British Prime Minister Theresa May, and International Monetary Fund Chairwoman Christine Lagarde.
