Not surprisingly, the far-left panel on Wednesday’s Deadline: White House did not react favorably to the Trump administration’s proposal to detain migrant families seeking asylum for longer than 20 days. Fill-in host John Heilemann suggested that President Trump wants to hold migrant children and their families “in detention centers indefinitely,” an idea which he argued “fit the textbook definition of what a concentration camp is.”
There was plenty to pick through on Wednesday’s Hardball, such as topics covered here about how PBS NewsHour’s Yamiche Alcindor implied she was upset with God Bless the USA airing at Trump rallies and the President for not pushing gun control. But there were also meltdowns from Alcindor and her fellow panelists about Trump’s feud with Denmark that included the words “disloyal,” “grenades,” and more accusations of racism and sexism.
Hours after President Trump blasted NBC White House correspondent Peter Alexander for being “the most biased reporter” in the press corps, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd predictably rushed to his colleague’s defense during MSNBC’s MTP Daily Wednesday afternoon: “There is nothing better for a journalist than to get attacked by Donald Trump.”
There has been lots of talk in the media recently about loyalty and on her Wednesday MSNBC Live show, Hallie Jackson got into an argument with Log Cabin Republicans national spokesperson Charles Moran over the organization's decision to endorse President Trump for re-election and one of the board members, Jennifer Horn's, decision to resign in protest.
Jon Meacham got one thing right. On today's Morning Joe, he said that the heads of any conservatives listening to him would blow up over their Wheaties. What was Meacham's remark that was so explosive to any right-thinking listener? His prediction that someday, we'll look back and realize that Al Gore was . . . "a prophetic voice" on the environment.
Things took a bizarre turn roughly ten minutes into Wednesday’s Hardball and, surprisingly, it wasn’t MSNBC host Chris Matthews. After discussing President Donald Trump’s feud with Denmark, the topic turned to Trump’s proposal to invite Russia back into the G-7 (making it the G-8) again when far-left PBS NewsHour correspondent Yamiche Alcindor appeared to take issue with Lee Greenwood’s God Bless the USA being played at Trump rallies.
After spending Tuesday afternoon whining about Planned Parenthood opting out of Title X funding over an abortion gag order, MSNBC journalists kept up the shameless partisanship into the evening on The Beat With Ari Melber. To no one’s surprise, Melber brought on a far-left feminist panel to melt down over the news, who laughably attacked the right’s “morality” for not allowing government funding of abortion.
In its rush to rightfully criticize President Trump’s controversial comments about American Jews who vote for Democrats, MSNBC’s Morning Joe completely skipped any mention of the virulent anti-Semitism being routinely spouted by far-left Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. In addition, the President was accused of inciting violence against a range of minority groups and trying to “hide behind his Jewish son-in-law and his Jewish daughter.”
President Trump has come out in opposition to some gun control measures, mainly additional background checks, that he had previously expressed some interest in and Tuesday's Deadline on MSNBC was not at all happy about it. Expressing his contempt for Trump, guest host John Heilemann led off the segment declaring that the only things certain in life are, "There's death and taxes and capitulation on gun control."
Responding to the President’s latest self-inflicted error Tuesday by questioning the loyalty of Jewish voters to their faith, MSNBC’s Hardball all but memory holed the whole reason the kerfuffle arose to begin with, which was the blatant anti-Semitism from Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
Tuesday afternoon MSNBC anchors spent their shows fretting that the largest abortion provider in the country that heavily contributes to Democrats was opting out of Title X government funding over an abortion gag order. Hosts Andrea Mitchell, Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle whined that poor “non-political” women who “depended” on the abortion giant would lose access to “critical health care” because of the Trump administration.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough covers for the false and defamatory tweets made by Democrat presidential candidates Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren, who accused a policeman in Ferguson, MO of having "murdered" Michael Brown. Scarborough cryptically says: "there, there, uh, were a few, uh, members, uh, a few members of the US Senate that, uh, tweeted some things, uh, about Ferguson that were not borne out by video evidence or by Eric Holder."
