It’s no question MSNBC has been begging for President Donald Trump’s impeachment. So, how does MSNBC legal analyst Jill Wine-Banks handle the issue of impeachment? By giving money to a Democratic Party House member who would later vote for impeachment.
Just over an hour prior to Tuesday’s latest 2020 Democratic presidential debate, longtime Democrat and former Clinton official James Carville appeared on MSNBC’s Hardball to unspool his latest takes of lunacy. This time, he insisted that “Trumpism is the greatest threat this country has faced since the fall of communism” and Republicans cannot ever be trusted to “save the United States.”
In a Sunday report about how MSNBC failed in their duty to report facts to their viewers in the midst of Iran’s missile attack on U.S. bases in Iraq last week, Fox News Channel media reporter and host of MediaBuzz, Howard Kurtz unloaded on the liberal cable news outlet for pushing Iran’s state-media propaganda and scaring the families of service members.
Following the death of Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani, it’s clear that many liberal analysts, commentators, contributors, journalists, and pundits would have fallback positions at Iran’s English-language, state-run Press TV if any would lose their jobs. For MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews, he would have quite the resume. According to a NewsBusters count between Monday and Thursday evenings, he adopted the Iranian-preferred word of “assassin” and its variations 60 times while discussing the Soleimani strike.
On Tuesday’s Hardball and reacting to Iran having launched missiles at an Iraqi military base housing U.S. soldiers, NBC News Tehran bureau chief Ali Arouzi likely bolstered his perch in the eyes of the Iranian regime, promoting one propaganda point after another to MSNBC host Chris Matthews. This included the utterly false claim that “30 U.S. soldiers have been killed in this attack.”
All this week, NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of the decade. Today, we’re reviewing the most over-the-top adulation of Barack Obama from the last decade. From Newsweek proclaiming his election “the Second Coming” to Chris Matthew’s non-stop thrills, check out the full post for the most ridiculous media Obamagasms from the past 10 years.
Folks, you know the drill. With the end of each year, we look back at some of the nuttiest takes from some of the more infamous liberal media types in 2019. As my colleagues have and will continue to do through December 31, this piece will serve as the recap of the year that Chris Matthews had on MSNBC and his show Hardball.
While the U.S. House of Representatives’ impeachment hearings were playing out in the background, MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews turned to Jon Meacham, the channel’s liberal presidential historian, and asked him to discuss House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s use of this “opportunity” to attack Donald Trump and try to throw him out of office. Of course, Meacham replied that the impeachment was indeed “a solemn moment” for the Democrats because the Republicans have become a “monarchal party,” and the President has been “acting in a kingly fashion."
Unlike CNN, MSNBC’s Hardball didn’t surrender its entire hour Wednesday to the House Judiciary Committee debate on the Articles of Impeachment, but considering all the nonsense uttered by host Chris Matthews and an assortment of guests, perhaps it would have been better to follow CNN’s lead.
Along with their over-the-top nonsense about the perils of not impeaching and removing President Trump, panelists on Tuesday’s Hardball argued that President Bill Clinton shouldn’t have been impeached because, unlike the Ukraine phone call, the crimes he committed never hurt anyone and didn’t harm the country in any way whatsoever.
With an array of guests, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews brought the histrionics on Tuesday after House Democrats finally unveiled Articles of Impeachment against Donald Trump, boasting that they were “push[ing] President Donald Trump closer to the brink of infamy” led by the “boss” (aka House Speaker Nancy Pelosi).
Instead of memory-holing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s lashing out at Sinclair’s James Rosen on Thursday morning, the liberal media decided to play it up as a testament to Pelosi’s “stunning” leadership and MSNBC’s Hardball did just that, boasting that she was “fierce” in what “may have been her finest hour.”
