On Sunday, two MSNBC hosts fretted over U.N. ambassador nominee Kelly Knight Craft's views on global warming as host Alex Witt invited Virginia Democratic Congressman Don Beyer to bash her on the subject, and, later in the day, Kasie D.C. host Kasie Hunt also gave attention to and seemed befuddled by her views.
On Sunday’s Kasie DC, the MSNBC panelists did their best to have it both ways when it came to the liberal media-fueled controversy involving the Covington High School students. Over the course of their discussion, they insisted that the story symbolized the need to be careful when jumping to conclusions while plowing ahead by placing the students alongside neo-Nazis, the KKK, and segregationist cops.
Between Saturday morning and Sunday night, CNN and MSNBC spent 53 minutes and 20 seconds on the fallout from Friday's confrontation between Covington High School students in Washington for the March for Life, a Native American veteran named Nathan Phillips, and the Black Israelites. 29 of those minutes came before anyone realized that perhaps things weren’t as they wanted it to appear. Of course, the liberal media have refused to take responsibility and issue retractions.
On Sunday's Kasie D.C. show, MSNBC host Kasie Hunt devoted a segment to fretting over the use of convicted murderer Willie Horton by George H.W. Bush during the 1988 presidential campaign as the group complained that "dog whistle" campaigning has gotten worse with Donald Trump as President.
MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt on reporting in the age of Trump: “I think we have to be careful about the breathlessness.... I think it's important to try to keep your perspective.” This remark was heard over the weekend at the annual Los Angeles Politicon, which describes itself as the “Unconventional Political Convention” that draws the “biggest names in politics and entertainment.”
In the past couple of days since the passing of former Republican Senator John McCain, several personalities on both CNN and MSNBC have lamented his selection of Sarah Palin as his vice presidential nominee in 2008 as a "mistake," with some suggestions that he helped set up the Republican party to go down the wrong track by doing so.
In the wake of the Helsinki summit when liberals and their mainstream media allies were hurling everything including the kitchen sink in the form of the charge of treason at President Trump, it turns out that all their attacks only resulted in a bump in Trump's poll ratings. This caused MSNBC's Kasie Hunt to express shock at that result on her Kasie DC show on Sunday to the extent that she claimed that we are now "living in a different space-time continuum" where "even gravity works differently."
While interviewing Republican Congressional Candidate Lea Marquez Peterson on Sunday’s edition of KasieDC, MSNBC host Kasie Hunt tried to bait her into calling the President a racist by bringing up his comments referring to MS-13 gang members as “animals”: “The President earlier this week referred to some immigrants and drug dealers as well as animals, not as people. Do you think that rhetoric is racist?”
During the A-block of Friday’s MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle, White House Correspondent Kasie Hunt inadvertently put lie to the media narrative that the government shutdown in late January was not the fault of congressional Democrats.
It’s astonishing that the same people who think Donald Trump exaggerates things out of proportion can happily promote a forthcoming Senate floor speech making the assertion that Trump is comparable to Josef Stalin, a mass-murdering totalitarian. But that’s just what happened Sunday night on Kasie Hunt’s MSNBC show. She blithely introduced an interview: “He gave me a preview comparing the president’s words to dictators past.”
On the debut episode of her Kasie DC show on Sunday, MSNBC host Kasie Hunt hinted at the kind of anti-conservative comments that conservatives imagine liberal journalists make about them when they think they're not being observed. While introducing a discussion about former White House advisor Steve Bannon's speech at the Values Voters Summit, Hunt let it slip that one of her guests -- Jake Sherman of Politico -- had stated something about Bannon "off the air" that she would not repeat "because it's a family program."
