After President Donald Trump last week called for "due process" for former White House aide Rob Porter after accusations that he abused both his ex-wives, the dominant liberal media responded by again resurrecting discredited claims that Trump lobbied for the execution of the Central Park Five who were accused of raping a jogger in 1989. In fact, according to a transcript recently posted in Nexis, Trump argued against executing juveniles and pushed instead for longer prison sentences as he appeared on CNN's Larry King Live in May 1989 and responded to questions about his ad calling for New York to pass a new death penalty law for murder cases.
On the Thursday edition of MSNBC's All In, The Root's politics editor and MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson demonstrated how difficult it is for liberal commentators to settle for giving sober criticism and avoid going into over the top hysterics when when reacting to President Donald Trump making incendiary comments that are actually worthy of rebuke. During a discussion of Trump reportedly deriding Haiti and other Third World nations as "shithole" countries, Johnson declared that the President is both an "enemy" to and a "clear and present danger to non-white people in America." He also warned that Trump is a "terrorist sympathizer" that Democrats should not "negotiate" with whose policies would make the U.S. "in danger as a sovereign nation."
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's All In with Chris Hayes, Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin declared that Republicans who have defended President Donald Trump "have really betrayed their country." She went on to similarly assert that Republicans in Congress "seriously are doing a grave injustice to the country."
Amateur psychoanalysis of Donald Trump is a constant theme of “objective” reporting these days, but MSNBC went Full Freud on Tuesday night’s All In, with MSNBC analyst Anand Giridharadas insisting we might all die at any minute because Trump’s “profound sexual and masculine insecurities are literally threatening to annihilate the planet.” MSNBC surely considers this paranoid analysis a “statement of fact.”
On Tuesday's All In show on MSNBC, during a discussion of Congress passing the Republican tax cuts, New York Times columnist and frequent MSNBC guest Michelle Goldberg likened the plan to "post-Soviet kleptocracy" and asserted that it amounts to "stealing from the the rest of us, stealing from the majority." She went on to call it an "insult" to both the poor and elderly, and predicted that "this is going to destroy a lot of people's public schools."
On Tuesday's All In show on MSNBC, host Chris Hayes and Republican-leaning MSNBC contributor Steve Schmidt were beside themselves over President Donald Trump's expected announcement that he would finally break with past Presidents and abide by the 1995 law calling for the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv to be moved to Jerusalem.
On the Thursday edition of MSNBC’s All In, guest and longtime American Enterprise Institute scholar Norm Ornstein showed his elitist disdain for the Founding Fathers and our constitutional government, bemoaning how less than half the U.S. population has a “super majority or close to it” in the U.S. Senate.
Hollywood is one of the greatest cesspools of hypocrisy in America. So of course, hypocrites gonna …, well, you know.
On October 25, Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem were guests on All In With Chris Hayes on MSNBC to discuss sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, as well as their own foundation, the Women’s Media Center. But the two geriatric feminists couldn’t resist enforcing the race narrative and slamming conservatives and President Donald Trump in the same breath.
On Monday's CNN Tonight, CNN political commentator Angela Rye was the latest liberal analyst to claim that President Donald Trump disproportionately targets black women for ridicule. And on Friday, CNN commentator John Avlon similarly suggested Trump was targeting black women. Even though, as previously noted by NewsBusters, there are many white men and white women who have also been attacked by the President according to a list compiled by the New York Times.
Appearing as a guest on Friday's All In with Chris Hayes, far-left MSNBC host Joy Reid was spreading misinformation to viewers as she claimed that President Barack Obama "had more threats against him than any President" even though the claim was discredited years ago. And, on her own show on Saturday's AM Joy, liberal guest Frank Schaeffer laughably lauded her as a "great public intellectual."
Since Donald Trump began his run for President in June 2015, parts of the dominant liberal media have repeatedly parroted the incorrect claim that, in 1989, Trump ran a newspaper ad in which he urged the execution of a group of young black and Hispanic teens who ended up eventually being proven "innocent" in spite of confessing to the infamous rape and beating of a Central Park jogger that year.
On Tuesday's All In, MSNBC host Chris Hayes surprisingly informed viewers of a flip-flop by guest Jennifer Rubin as he recalled that the frequent MSNBC guest who has a right-leaning history did, in fact, oppose President Barack Obama's creation of the DACA program before deciding she is now in favor of it with President Donald Trump rescinding it.
