It was quite a sight on the Thursday editions of CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront and MSNBC’s Hardball as liberal journalists heaped effusive praise on President Trump for his “remarkable,” “significant,” and “stunning” willingness to meet soon with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. All the while, each network’s former Obama administration officials experienced weapons-grade meltdowns.
You might find it weird that a network where socialism is embraced would have its own store, but MSNBC has products to sell you! The cable network is now running ads for its own branded products, touting the motto: “Wear your heart on your everything!” Where else would you get a Chris Matthews “unisex tri-blend” tank top? (Sure to give you a thrill up your leg!)
Without a hint of irony, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews seemed exasperated on Tuesday night while reacting to former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg’s strange cable news tour from Monday, dubbing Nunberg a “loopy” “Kato Kaelin-type character” who’s emerged in the Trump-Russia probe.
A day after suggesting that defying the NRA could leave politicians assassinated like Anwar Sadat or Yitzhak Rabin, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews argued on Wednesday night that Parkland gun control student activists are just like American troops turning the tide in World War I.
Whenever someone from the liberal media footnotes in a Trump-Russia story that there’s no evidence that votes were changed, remember segments like this one from Tuesday’s Hardball that showed why, deep down, they’re still convinced that Russians were why Hillary Clinton lost the election.
On Tuesday’s Hardball, lefty MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews refused to correct Democratic Governor Jay Inslee (Wash.) on his absurd claim that the National Rifle Association (NRA) wants first graders to be armed with guns. Not only that, but the host debased the gun rights group's millions of members and civil discourse by comparing anyone who defies the NRA to assassinated leaders Anwar Sadat of Egypt or Yitzhak Rabin from Israel.
Since the Parkland, Florida school shooting late last week, the liberal media has been leaping at every opportunity to put one of the young anti-gun student activists on the screen so they can parrot back liberal talking points on guns. A great demonstration of this occurred on Monday’s edition of MSNBC’s Hardball where host Chris Matthews took anti-gun activist Chris Grady through his NRA/GOP bashing paces.
One can almost count on MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews to make an eyebrow-raising statement on a given night. Thursday night saw Matthews up his game with a stream of fake news, fearmongering, and liberal talk points on gun control a day after the Parkland, Florida high school massacre.
After President Donald Trump last week called for "due process" for former White House aide Rob Porter after accusations that he abused both his ex-wives, the dominant liberal media responded by again resurrecting discredited claims that Trump lobbied for the execution of the Central Park Five who were accused of raping a jogger in 1989. In fact, according to a transcript recently posted in Nexis, Trump argued against executing juveniles and pushed instead for longer prison sentences as he appeared on CNN's Larry King Live in May 1989 and responded to questions about his ad calling for New York to pass a new death penalty law for murder cases.
On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews spent over two and a half times more on trumpeting the need for gun control and chastising gun owners, the National Rifle Association, and ordinary Americans over the issue than covering the deadly Florida school shooting, and its victims. All told, Matthews spent 38 minutes and 46 seconds on segments or parts of ones discussing the issue with guests but only 14 minutes and 48 seconds on the actual shooting.
On Tuesday, it didn’t take long for the liberal media to move from learning about what happened at the deadly school shooting in Florida and the victims to lobbying for gun control. Ghoulishly, CNN law enforcement analyst Phil Mudd, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews, and MSNBC’s The 11th Hour host Brian Williams chose to condemn America as an exceptional country due to its gun policies.
As tough as journalists are on Donald Trump, it’s hard to believe they ever loved a president as much as Barack Obama. But it’s now been a full decade since Chris Matthews announced his famous “thrill” up the leg. Provoked by Obama’s speeches during the 2008 Democratic primaries, the MSNBC host prompted ten years of mockery for the fawning comment.
