Deadline: White House
Washington Post’s theater critic Peter Marks loves the U.S. Constitution, particularly when it’s re-interpreted by Democrats as a “patriarchal” document, or used to float lefty principles. A new Putlitzer-nominated Broadway show has scratched that revisionist itch and Marks reacted blissfully, trying to capture that spirit of progressive interpretation by interviewing several prominent media lefties on how they see the Constitution.
Over the past several days, the networks have delivered the latest example of the dominant liberal media suddenly taking notice of a normal government activity done by the Donald Trump administration and treating it as outrageous even though there was no media scrutiny when the same activity was also done by the Barack Obama administration.
Despite admitting that Joe Walsh has no chance in his longshot bid against Donald Trump in the Republican primaries, MSNBC and CNN touted him all day on Monday. In between correctly calling out Walsh’s past offensive and conspiratorial comments, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace lectured the former Congressman, demanding he agree to vote Democrat if his bid fails. She repeatedly peppered, “If it doesn't work out, will you vote for the Democrat?... Will you vote for the Democrat?”
Not surprisingly, the far-left panel on Wednesday’s Deadline: White House did not react favorably to the Trump administration’s proposal to detain migrant families seeking asylum for longer than 20 days. Fill-in host John Heilemann suggested that President Trump wants to hold migrant children and their families “in detention centers indefinitely,” an idea which he argued “fit the textbook definition of what a concentration camp is.”
President Trump has come out in opposition to some gun control measures, mainly additional background checks, that he had previously expressed some interest in and Tuesday's Deadline on MSNBC was not at all happy about it. Expressing his contempt for Trump, guest host John Heilemann led off the segment declaring that the only things certain in life are, "There's death and taxes and capitulation on gun control."
Nicolle Wallace and her MSNBC Deadline: White House panel went through the pretense on Friday that President Trump is suffering from Alzheimer's and discussed his removal from office due to the 25th Amendment. The big problem with this scenario they claim is that his cabinet is not intact. Oh, and also the fact that they would not vote to remove him even if they were intact.
Not surprisingly, the panel on Monday’s edition of Deadline: White House did not react favorably to “a new rule announced by the Trump administration” that “makes it harder for low-income legal immigrants who receive food stamps or other government assistance to stay in this country.” According to one member of the panel, this new policy constitutes “white nationalism.”
On Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show on Monday, the question was whether it would be good political strategy, given President Trump's alleged racism, to accuse the Trump base of being racists for supporting him. Frank Figliuzzi, an Obama-era FBI official and NBC National Security Analyst, said such would be a mistake, because: "if you call Trump followers racist en masse, they simply coalesce around each other and become more defensive and protective of the leader, just as they would in, say, a terrorist organization."
MSNBC’s anchors from Joe Scarborough to Donny Deutsch are constantly comparing President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler.
Somebody forgot to tell MSNBC analyst Karine Jean-Pierre that the liberal media aren't supposed to openly admit — let alone celebrate — the fact that they're united in opposition to President Trump. Thursday on Deadline White House, host Nicolle Wallace noted that all the Dem presidential candidates are "singing from one song sheet" in attacking Trump.
Nicolle Wallace, the strident Never Trumper who hosts MSNBC’s Deadline: White House, recently came under fire for alleging on national television that President Trump was “talking about exterminating Latinos.” For many conservatives, that backlash — which died down somewhat once Wallace issued a terse apology, albeit only on Twitter — was their first exposure to Wallace and her vitriolic coverage of this administration.
On Tuesday night, failed McCain/Palin campaign official, former Republican, and MSNBC’s Deadline: White House host Nicolle Wallace apologized for claiming during Monday’s show that President Donald Trump has been “talking about exterminating Latinos.” Wallace’s comments were first flagged by our very own contributing writer Mark Finkelstein.
