Deadline: White House
While congressional Democrats did their best to make it sound like they were sad about the formalization of the impeachment inquiry, MSNBC’s Jason Johnson had a different take. Appearing on Thursday’s Deadline: White House, Johnson declared “I may be in the minority here. I’m not somber today. I’m thrilled.”
On Tuesday's Deadline: White House, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was dragged into a discussion of President Trump tweeting the word "lynching" to describe the Democratic impeachment drive. MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson tied conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Republicans to the white supremacists who murdered blacks during the Jim Crow era in the South. This in spite of the fact that the perpetrators were typically Democrats while white Republicans were sometimes targeted for trying to register blacks to vote.
On Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show, guest Rick Wilson, a supposed "GOP strategist" says "Trump isn’t magic, he isn’t invulnerable. If you cut him, he’ll still bleed." MSNBC contributor Tim O'Brien fantasizes about President Trump being dumped on a highway and being hit by a car going 80 MPH.
On her MSNBC show, Nicolle Wallace claims that independent/swing voters will be "a whole lot more likely" to believe what Nancy Pelosi says about impeachment when they hear Mitt Romney saying the same thing.
Wow! The MSNBC host of Deadline: White House, Nicolle Wallace, declared President Trump to be a liar on Wednesday (how original) and used that as an excuse to cut away from the televised press conference almost 24 hours after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared the House's formal attempt to impeach the President. Perhaps Trump's truth telling about Joe and Hunter Biden was too much for her to tolerate. In any event, it was a stunning act of anti-journalism.
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.”
