On Joy Reid's MSNBC show, Tiffany Cross, co-founder of The Beat DC, says that Trump supporters suffer from a "willful layer of ignorance." In contrast, claims Cross, Democrats are a "much more intellectually curious crowd, open to ideas."
The "public charge" doctrine has been a foundation of American immigration policy going back hundreds of years to colonial times. The notion is that immigrants who are unable to support themselves, thus becoming public charges, should not be admitted or permitted to remain. In 1996, Congress enacted a federal immigration law codifying the public charge principle, and it has remained on the books in the same form ever since. So what do you call the Trump administration's plan to enforce that law? If you're a Trump-hating leftist like MSNBC contributor Fernand Amandi, it is nothing less than: "a white-supremacist, domestic-terror campaign targeting people of color."
On Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, frequent guest Elie Mystal of AboveTheLaw.com made the kind of statement about a "majority of white people" that would be considered blatantly bigoted or racist if aimed at any other group, as he stated that it is necessary for Democrats to "destroy" whites who support President Donald Trump.
MSNBC’s anchors from Joe Scarborough to Donny Deutsch are constantly comparing President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler.
Accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein's body was barely cold after a reported suicide in a federal prison when MSNBC personnel began chiming in with conspiracy theories pointing fingers at the Trump administration and the Russians.
In the aftermath of the mass shooting at a Wal-Mart in El Paso, a number of news shows on ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, and PBS have allowed guests to misleadingly cite gun-friendly Texas's open carry and concealed carry laws to give the impression that El Paso Wal-Mart customers must have been well-armed when they were attacked, thus undermining arguments in favor of allowing customers to bring guns with them.
The past couple of weeks have brought the latest example of liberal news outfits like CNN and MSNBC suddenly taking notice of a recurring problem in immigration enforcement under President Donald Trump's administration which also happened during past administrations, including that of Barack Obama. A number of shows pounced on the story of natural-born American citizen, Francisco Galicia, who was detained by CBP and handed over to ICE in a process that took over three weeks because of suspicions that he was an illegal immigrant, in spite of him having his birth certificate on him, as a number of news reports suggested that his detention was racially motivated, with much of the coverage omitting aspects of the story which help explain why the detention happened in the first place.
On AM Joy, Malcolm Nance tells Joy Reid that "this could be the last free and fair election in American history" because of manipulation of the results by a foreign "cabal."
Our friends at Twitchy are having fun with the latest episode of Dubious “Hate” News – or #HateHoax – on Twitter. Georgia state Rep. Erica Thomas went viral over the weekend when she claimed a white man told her to “go home” when she had too many items in the Express Late at the Publix supermarket in Cobb County.
Over the weekend, MSNBC's AM Joy show demonstrated its inability to engage in sober criticism of President Donald Trump rather than descending into over the top hyperbole as two frequent guests of the show likened Trump supporters to Nazis and KKK members. Comedian Dean Obeidallah claimed that the word "Trump" is becoming a "modern-day swastika," MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson saw a "modern-day lynching" of Ilhan Omar and her "Squad" colleagues, and The Beat D.C's Tiffany Cross declared that a MAGA hat is equivalent to a "Nazi symbol" or "Klan hood."
On her MSNBC show, Joy Reid puts it to black Republican strategist Lenny McAllister that since President Trump's policies, supposedly, hurt poor people, he has nothing to offer poor whites other than racism. When McAllister tries to raise school choice as an issue Republicans can support, and which helps African-Americans in particular, Reid shuts him down, changes the subject, and moves to another guest.
On Joy Reid's MSNBC show, discussing the dust-up between Nancy Pelosi and "The Squad" [composed of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashid Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley] Julianne Malveaux urged her fellow Democrats to unite around their larger objective: "at the end of the day, the goal has to be to get rid of the orange orangutan."
