With All Due Respect
This election is over! You got that? Hillary Clinton has already won.
Only one not so little problem. The one making this declaration is none other than the Eddie Mush of politics aka Bob Shrum. This time, the extremely unlucky political consultant (0 for 8 in presidential candidate wins) who infamous for possessing the "Shrum curse" might have cast a pall of misfortune upon the Hillary Clinton campaign with his gloatingly confident prognostication of certain victory for her. In fact, she has pretty much already won according to Shrum who was jubilantly performing an end zone victory dance while speaking to John Heilemann today on Bloomberg's With All Due Respect.
Donny Deutsch has a big fear about an impending jihadist attack. He is worried that jihadists would instigate terrorism because they supposedly think it would help Donald Trump win. He made this assertion not once but twice on With All Due Respect. Deutsch begins worrying about a Trump victory due to jihadists at the 1:10 mark of the following video.
During a discussion on Bloomberg’s With All Due Respect about concerns that the Republican Party would abandon Donald Trump, guest Donny Deutsch shared his own fantasy that would spell bad news for the GOP. “I actually believe something else is going to start to happen in the next few weeks if things don't turn around,” Deutsch warned, “I can actually see Trump bailing.” According to Deutsch this isn’t the first time the thought has crossed his mind.
During Monday’s edition on Bloomberg’s With All Due Respect, co-host Mark Halperin and guest Donny Deutsch tackled one of the day’s hard hitting questions, “Okay Mark, when it comes to the publishing industry, why is this counterintuitive in certain ways, why are Clinton bashing books out there versus zero Trump?” Deutsch was curious about it because, “At this moment, the top three nonfiction books on the New York Times Best Seller list are all [about Hillary Clinton].” And neither one of them could figure it out.
Have you ever had somebody try to sell you on something but the pitch goes on and on and on with a complicated explanation which is almost impossible to understand? If you are smart, you would walk away with your hand on your wallet.
Such was the case yesterday when Gene Sperling, Hillary Clinton's economic adviser, attempted to explain her economic policies on Bloomberg's With All Due Respect to hosts John Heilemann and Mark Halperin. His seemingly endless complex explanations seemed to frustrate the hosts until Heilemann asked Sperling to very briefly explain her economic policy. The result? Sperling went on another yet filibuster that did nothing to enlighten the hosts. This was actually one of several Sperling filibusters beginning with his overlong explanation about how Hillary no longer supports TPP even though most people think she still does after years of her enthusiastically promoting it.
On Wednesday’s edition on Bloomberg’s With All Due Respect, co-host Mark Halperin admitted what many on the left probably wouldn’t dare to. He admitted that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s comments about Donald Trump have not been as controversial as they should be because she’s a liberal. “If a Republican justice did that to a Democratic candidate, I think, the world explode,” Halperin exclaimed to co-host John Heilemann.
On Wednesday, Congressional Republicans demanded FBI Director James Comey to appear before the House Oversight Committee to answer questions about his recommendation to not prosecute Hillary Clinton. The hearing was set to held the following Thursday, but Bloomberg’s John Heilemann thought Republicans are too incompetent to hold the hearing. “They have, as you know, bundled -- bungled these kinds of inquiries before, over and over and over again. But, most recently, with the Benghazi matter,” he argued on With All Due Respect.
Contributing to the media's rush to discredit Donald Trump's resurrecting of former President Bill Clinton's marital infidelities in his campaign against wife Hillary, Bloomberg's With All Due Respect co-host John Heilemann chided Trump on Thursday for "play[ing] the rape card" and predicted it'd be of no benefit to him going forward towards November.
“Look at anything Trump’s done. It plays into hatred,” actor Jeff Daniels charged on Monday’s With All Due Respect, before sneering: “The hat should say, ‘Make America White Again.’” As for the far-left socialist Sanders, Daniels trumpeted how “I love Bernie. I love the ideas he’s got,” citing his “ideals, let’s just make the world a great place” with “free health care and free college.” Alas, standing in the way is the fact “that thing called ‘Congress’ is a problem.”
Donald Trump has wasted no time in "going there": accusing Hillary Clinton of being an enabler of Bill's sexual misconduct with women. So will the MSM ask Hillary about her role in hushing up the scandals, intimidating the women, etc? No, according to Mark Halperin, not unless the MSM is "forced" to do so.
Said Halperin on today's With All Due Respect, "I don't think a reporter will ask unless they're basically forced to." Halperin and Heilemann did hold out one intriguing possibility: that some "new information, some more recent information" about Bill's peccadilloes could force the MSM's hand. Added Halperin tantalizingly, with Heilemann's agreement: "Trump thinks he knows some new facts, by the way."
With the Indiana primary a day away the liberal media is franticly pushing the narrative that Ted Cruz is going to lose and Donald Trump is destined to be the nominee. “It's hard to think of Ted Cruz as a human being in the same week when Boehner called him Lucifer,” smeared Nicolle Wallace on Bloomberg’s With All Due Respect. Co-host of the show John Heilemann declared Indiana was the end of line for Cruz, “this was the last stand for the Never Trump movement.”
Elite east coast journalists dubbed Tuesday’s primaries in Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Rhode Island “the Acela primary,” but as Bloomberg TV’s With All Due Respect humorously demonstrated, TV anchors across the country have no idea how to pronounce the name of Amtrak’s high-speed rail service between Washington, DC and Boston.
