Andrea Mitchell Reports
Throughout her interview with former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell repeatedly urged him to criticize Trump. After Mattis refused to do so, Mitchell lectured: “Do you fear that you might be normalizing the decisions of this president because you are so critical of his predecessors?”
For her Tuesday show, Andrea Mitchell welcomed an unbalanced panel of Daily Beast editor Sam Stein and two Democratic partisans to discuss gun control. The gun control portion of the panel began with Mitchell playing some clips of Democratic presidential hopefuls discussing gun control, the last of which was Kamala Harris, "We've been having great ideas for decades. The problem is congress has not had the courage to act. If they don't within the first 100 days of my administration I'm going to take executive action."

Tuesday afternoon MSNBC anchors spent their shows fretting that the largest abortion provider in the country that heavily contributes to Democrats was opting out of Title X government funding over an abortion gag order.

On her MSNBC show on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell adopted the unhinged talking points of 2020 Democratic candidates as she claimed that comments from Citizenship and Immigration Services Acting Director Ken Cuccinelli proved that Trump administration policies were “anti-Hispanic.”

On her MSNBC show on Monday, anchor Andrea Mitchell complained about the lack of progress on gun control in the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton. After one of her guests called on congressional Democrats to push an assault weapons ban, Mitchell openly voiced support for the legislation: “Nancy Pelosi should pick that up and run with it.”
The media, MSNBC in particular, appear desperate to salvage what little remains of their reputation by trying to insist that Robert Mueller's Wednesday testimony was not a complete dud. On her Friday show, Andrea Mitchell tried to argue that despite the lack of any new revelations, Mueller's testimony was "pretty devastating" for Trump.
During her noon ET hour show on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell rushed to the defense of the far-left “squad” members of Congress – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley – by falsely claiming that “none of these members of Congress are socialists.” In reality, two of them are members of Democratic Socialists of America while all of them have advocated policies that fit the very definition of socialism.
