If President Trump's reaction to the coronavirus pandemic to proves anything, according to MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell and the Washington Post's Philip Rucker, it is that Trump is incapable of being surrounded by strong, competent female leaders. Mitchell made the accusation on her Tuesday show, by giving Rucker examples that purportedly prove her point.



On her 12:00 p.m. ET hour show on Monday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell rushed to defend PBS NewsHour correspondent Yamiche Alcindor’s hostile questioning of President Trump during Sunday evening’s Coronavirus Task Force briefing.

During her 12:00 p.m. ET hour show on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell revealed her greatest fear amid the coronavirus pandemic – Donald Trump’s approval ratings going up. She fretted over likely Democratic nominee Joe Biden “having difficulty” getting his message out during the crisis and support for the President “skyrocketing.”



Earlier this week, Democrats sabotaged Senate efforts to pass COVID-19 relief measures by demanding that their unrelated legislative pet projects be included in any bill. On Monday, MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell has discovered the true villain of this story: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for daring to point it out.



During a live interview with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell lobbed one softball after another, refusing to press the Democratic leader on playing politics with coronavirus relief legislation. Instead, Mitchell repeatedly encouraged Pelosi to dictate terms of the aid package and attack President Trump.



After NBC actually called out Democrats for holding up the coronavirus relief bill Monday morning, its sister network instead, went to absurd lengths to defend Democrats refusing to give aid to hurting American families. On MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, the host downplayed Senate Democrats playing politics, while even defending their actions as doing what voters would want.



Joe Scarborough joined Andrea Mitchell on Thursday after President Trump and other government officials gave another press conference on the latest COVID-19 developments where he decried the "really strange spectacle" of Trump calling the media out for repeating Chinese propaganda.

 


After Friday's White House coronavirus press conference, Andrea Mitchell and MSNBC national security analyst Jeremy Bash decried alleged instances of race-baiting and xenophobia from President Trump and Secretary of State Pompeo and claimed it was they who were provoking international tensions during a time when the world should be coming together.

 


After the Wednesday coronavirus task force held a press conference on the latest developments surrounding the government's plans to fight the virus, MSNBC chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel joined an extended Andrea Mitchell Reports panel to accuse President Trump and others of having a medieval approach of "scapegoating against an ethnic group" when they refer to COVID-19 by other names.

 


If one were to judge by the reaction of the media to Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren's decision to withdraw for the 2020 Democratic primary, you could be forgiven for assuming she was actually popular. MSNBC campaign reporter Ali Vitali joined Friday's Andrea Mitchell Reports to continue the media mourning session where she lamented the downfall of the last serious female Democratic candidate and her plans.

 


On her Thursday show, MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell lamented the news that Elizabeth Warren has decided to drop out of the presidential election leaving two septuagenarian white males as the only remaining credible choices in the Democratic Primary.

 


The media's urge to say that everything is worse than Richard Nixon and Watergate reached peaked absurdity on Friday as Andrea Mitchell Reports guest host Geoff Bennett and former assistant Watergate special prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks discussed the current administration's "credibility gap" on the coronavirus.
