Andrea Mitchell Reports
After Vice President Pence called on Rep. Ilhan Omar to be punished for her anti-Semitic remarks, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell used the blowback against the Democrat to complain about anti-Muslim discrimination. The journalist grilled Pence Wednesday afternoon, while he was in Warsaw, Poland attending a U.S. sponsored summit on the Middle East.
Appearing on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports on Monday, Washington Post Deputy Editorial Page Editor Ruth Marcus applauded her paper’s decision to spend money on an expensive Super Bowl ad. She even claimed that the commercial wasn’t actually meant to promote the Post, despite the logo being shown at the end of Sunday night’s pricey spot.
During a discussion about the ongoing racial scandal swirling around Democratic Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell actually fretted that calls for his resignation ran the “risk of appearing too politically correct” and may even create “blowback” against Democrats.
President Trump has never hidden his disdain for many of the persons in the liberal press, whom he has often called “the enemy of the people.” An example of that dislike took place early Wednesday afternoon, when the GOP official was signing an anti-human trafficking bill into law. During the event, Trump offered to take questions from the reporters present, including Jonathan Karl, ABC’s chief White House correspondent, who demonstrated one of the reasons the president does not hold the mainstream media in high regard.
Who are you and what have you done with Andrea Mitchell? The usually reliably liberal MSNBC host on Wednesday pushed Senator Tim Kaine to compromise with Republicans and the President on the wall. She also indicated that liberals may simply want to deny Donald Trump a win.
Touting an exclusive MSNBC town hall with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, anchor Andrea Mitchell applauded the Democratic leader for dismissing the controversy swirling around newly-elected Michigan Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, after the far-left lawmaker launched into a profane tirade calling for President Trump’s impeachment.
Appearing on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports Thursday afternoon as Nancy Pelosi was reelected Speaker of the House, lefty historian Doris Kearns Goodwin hailed the Democratic leader as “the right person at the right time in the right place.” She went on to describe how “thrilling” it was to see Democrats regain control of the congressional chamber and bring “joy” back to Washington.
On her 12:00 p.m. ET hour show on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell attempted to falsely place partial blame on the Trump administration for migrants at the U.S. border being marked with numbers on their arms. In reality, the practice has been traced back to volunteers with the Mexican Red Cross and was in no way implemented by the U.S.
On Friday's Andrea Mitchell Reports, host Mitchell asserted that Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was "blaming the victim" when she correctly warned that it is very dangerous to cross the desert illegally in reaction to recent news of a child dying possibly of dehydration after her father crossed the desert illegally from Mexico. Correspondent Jacob Soboroff suggested that the Trump administration is "forcing" illegals to cross under dangerous circumstances through the desert because of long wait times at legal ports of entry.
On Thursday afternoon, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell and Capitol Hill correspondent Kasie Hunt were gleeful as they discussed Nancy Pelosi striking a deal with “rebel” Democrats to ensure her position as Speaker of the House. They both agreed that a contentious Oval Office meeting with President Trump had given Pelosi a boost during one of her “best weeks in politics.”
On Tuesday and Wednesday, Andrea Mitchell oddly claimed that President Donald Trump was using a "racial dog whistle" against Mississippi Democratic Senate nominee Mike Espy as the MSNBC host discussed Trump commenting that Espy's far-left politics do not "fit in" with his strongly conservative home state.
On Friday's Andrea Mitchell Reports on MSNBC, fill-in host Katy Tur led a discussion of President Donald Trump's handling of the illegal immigrant caravan as she and other panel members suggested the President deliberately wishes to stoke violence by stationing military troops on the border with Mexico. Tur also went into a self-admitted "rant" in which she fretted that Trump is exaggerating border security problems for political gain.
