In appearances on both MSNBC's Morning Joe and CNN's New Day today, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer repeatedly accused Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of going along with an alleged "coverup" by President Trump of the impeachment trial, "hook, line, and sinker."
After a peaceful Monday rally by Second Amendment activists in Richmond, Virginia, CNN and MSNBC deserved thoughts and prayers seeing as how their fear-mongering about “violence” a la Charlottesville by “thousands” of “heavily armed” “guns rights activists, white nationalists, militia groups swarming” the Capitol fizzed into puddles of lies.
Question: in addition to her duties as an NBC correspondent, is Heidi Przybyla also serving as a PR flack for the Biden campaign? You have to wonder after watching Przybyla's performance today on Morning Joe. Przybyla didn't merely highlight the memo that the Biden campaign has put out as a pre-emptive response to charges of Ukraine corruption—she passionately embraced the memo's findings.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough says that the families, children, and grandchildren of defenders of President Trump will be punished by history. Vengeance will be visited on the descendants of the pro-Trump sinners.
On Wednesday, the crew of MSNBC’s Morning Joe all agreed that Tuesday night’s Democratic debate was a “dull” and “lifeless” event in which “nobody looked good.” According to co-host Joe Scarborough, the only thing the debate accomplished was to show the 2020 contenders “are still not ready for prime time.”
Appearing on CBS’s Late Show Monday night, aired early Tuesday morning, MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski joined liberal comedian Stephen Colbert in predictably trashing President Trump on everything from impeachment to Iran. The trio were “hopeful” Trump will “pay for all the lies.”
MSNBC host Joe Scarborough on Monday continued down his path to media redemption. The former Republican has already left the GOP and denounced the party. Now, he thinks that maybe liberals were “right” all along in thinking that Republicans were always “racist” and “rotten.” Talking to another ex-GOP, Rick Wilson, the MSNBC host noted that the left would say the “party was always corrupt, it was always rotten. It was always racist. You are now reaping what you sow.”
Reacting to Lindsey Graham's praise of President Trump's speech about Iran, and Marco Rubio's praise of the briefing given to senators about the situation, MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski suggests that Trump is blackmailing them.
Over the weekend, MSNBC host Al Sharpton repeated a study highlighted last March by the Washington Post that made the claim that during the 2016 presidential race, there was an increase in hate crimes in counties that held Donald Trump rallies, even though the findings were discredited as misleading last September by another study published by Reason magazine. MSNBC host Yasmin Vossoughian also cited the flawed study again on last Thursday's First Look show.
Jake Sherman is no fan of Republicans in general or of President Trump in particular. He's the author of an unflattering book about the Trump White House, in which he also described Mitch McConnell's handling of the Kavanaugh confirmation as "merciless" and "Machiavellian."
New York Times political reporter Jeremy Peters has a fun theory that conservative media and President Trump are somehow a fault for the recent machete attack at a Hanukkah party in Monsey, New York. During a Monday panel discussion about the incident on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Peters asserted that “the media that a lot of the President’s supporters consume” was partially to blame for a recent uptick in racially motivated attacks.
