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."
This is "deplorables" on steroids. On her MSNBC show this morning, Joy Reid slurred Trump supporters as a bunch of sadists, saying that President Trump is treating people at the border with "cruelty" because "the base wants to see this."
On Joy Reid's MSNBC show, regular guest Elie Mystal says the 5-12% of African-Americans who don't support Democrats have "had their vote colonized by the Republicans, or by Russia." He adds, "you can't free everybody."
On Saturday's AM Joy, MSNBC host Joy Reid tried to defend the liberal double standard of attacking President Donald Trump's treatment of illegal immigrants even when President Barack Obama did similar things as she claimed Obama was just doing it to appease Republicans and get a deal on the issue. She also tried to blame Trump for an immigrant father and daughter drowning recently in the Rio Grande as if illegals were not already crossing the border that way before Trump was President.
On Joy Reid's MSNBC show, illegal alien Jose Antonio Vargas called on US citizens to take "risks" to "protect" illegals if they see them being arrested. Sounds like Vargas was calling on people to commit the crime of interfering with a lawful arrest.
To say that Joy Reid has impeachment on the noggin is a vast understatement. Once again today, she devoted the great majority of her MSNBC show to pushing impeachment. For our readers' entertainment, we've put together a mashup in which the I-word was used no fewer than 46 times in a variety of forms and contexts—and we might have missed a few!
On Joy Reid's MSNBC show, guest Elie Mystal blames white Democrats, who he depicts as "three white truck drivers in a diner," for the failure of Democrat leadership in Congress to commence impeachment proceedings against President Trump. Mystal says that, in contrast, black and brown Democrats "overwhelmingly" support impeachment, and that at some point, Nancy Pelosi must acknowledge her base.
