The Last Word
Whenever the liberal media run out of ways to attack someone, they turn to name calling, no matter whether it’s warranted or even true. Wednesday night’s The Last Word, with host Lawrence O’Donnell, was no exception. In his opening monologue, O’Donnell began: “Donald Trump proved once again today that he is the weakest man and the weakest mind that has ever occupied the presidency…”
In their usual state of fear-mongering panic, members of the liberal media on MSNBC made wild speculations Friday night about the future of Russian interference in U.S. elections. Joy Reid, filling in for host Lawrence O’Donnell, was joined by guests Evan McMullin, co-founder of Stand Up Republic and The Daily Beast columnist Michael Weiss.
Wednesday night after the much anticipated Mueller hearings, MSNBC hosts scrambled to make something new of the testimony. In spite of their bests efforts, nothing they didn’t already know had presented itself. Lawrence O’Donnell and Rachel Maddow decided that in order to really understand the situation, Mueller’s staff also need to testify. Yes, that’s right: More hearings.
In light of President Trump’s recent tweets and rallies, the liberal media has decided it is time to take the rhetoric up a notch. No longer is Trump any old racist, he has now earned himself the title of ‘white nationalist’. Filling in for host Lawrence O’Donnell, Joy Reid made sure to make this distinction on Friday night’s episode of The Last Word.
On Tuesday night, The Last Word was back at it with wild speculations and conspiracy theories. Host Lawrence O’Donnell and guest Zerlina Maxwell, host of Signal Boost, speculated about the sex crimes case against Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, this time in relation to Attorney General William Barr. As the discussion that followed demonstrated, the liberal media have been trying their hardest to find any possible connection between Epstein and the Trump administration.
On Monday night’s episode of The Last Word, MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell and guest Tim O’Brien made over-the-top claims and speculations into the relationship between recently indicted Jeffery Epstein and President Donald Trump. The host began the discussion with a vaguely dramatic and ominous claim: “Now, sometimes the indictment of an old friend of Donald Trump's for sex trafficking has nothing to do with Donald Trump, but this is not one of the times.”
On Friday night’s The Last Word, host Lawrence O’Donnell was joined by MSNBC contributor and former Obama official, Wendy Sherman to, not surprisingly criticize the President. O’Donnell began, “There is a very smiling and happy Vladimir Putin joking about how much he hates the news media along with Donald Trump.” Of course, this was very triggering for the liberal media. Sherman commented: “…that Donald Trump aligns himself with these autocrats, with these dictators really is about his being a bully.”
In an almost five-minute rant Tuesday night, MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell tried to rationalize how Senator Lindsey Graham and Donald Trump Jr. could possibly support the President. O’Donnell’s conclusion was fear: “In the peculiar chemistry of Trump world, hate and fear sometimes combine to create public love and adoration. That seems to have happened to both Lindsey Graham and Donald Trump Jr.”
Friday night on MSNBC’s The Last Word, host Lawrence O’Donnell showed his support for Trump accuser E. Jean Carroll. Carroll accused President Trump of raping her in a department store in 1995, in an article that came out in New York Magazine Friday. O’Donnell and the liberal media quickly ate up the allegations without any skepticism, with O’Donnell spending over half of his hour-long program on the story.
Like other primetime hosts at MSNBC, Lawrence O’Donnell spends most of the time during his Last Word weeknight program slamming President Trump as guilty of committing treason and therefore deserving immediate impeachment. Of course, it came as no surprise that he used an interview with The Hollywood Reporter website and magazine to assail the GOP occupant of the White House as “illiterate” and having no ability to handle complexity.
MSNBC’s The Last Word, was back on Wednesday night to their usual anti-Trump rhetoric, amidst Trump’s recent ABC interview which had sent the entire liberal media in a frenzy. To begin, O’Donnell showed a clip from the interview in which President Trump stated: “I’ve seen a lot of things over my life. I don’t think in my whole life I’ve ever called the FBI, in my whole life. You don’t call the FBI.”
President Trump made more headlines Wednesday night after he told ABC chief anchor George Stephanopoulos that he would be fine with taking “oppo research” on his 2020 opponent from foreign countries. This comment drew criticism. But during their almost two hours and 30 minutes of prime time coverage, or hair-on-fire panic, neither CNN nor MSNBC cared to mention that that’s exactly what the Clinton campaign did in 2016 with the now-infamous dossier.
