As the media have been fixated all week on the Trump administration strictly enforcing immigration laws and, as required by law, separating illegal immigrant parents from children during prosecutions, MSNBC's Jacob Soboroff delivered a gem that deserves a place in the annals of "Blame America First" as he actually blamed the U.S. for Central America's crime problems with MS-13 and other gangs.
MSNBC, also known as the George Soros News Network, has continued to go off the deep end when discussing the Trump Administration's policy of enforcing existing immigration laws. During Tuesday's edition of MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle, panelist Mark Thompson compared President Trump to the Roman emperor Nero, accusing him of "burning America up." NPR Latino USA host Maria Hinojosa dropped the usual Holocaust analogies.
Following controversial Republican nominee, Corey Stewart’s win for Virginia Senate race and Never Trumper Mark Sanford’s loss in South Carolina’s race, MSNBC devoted a lengthy segment to discussing everything wrong morally with the Republican party, on Stephanie Ruhle’s show, June 13. Using Stewart’s win as the starting point, Ruhle’s liberal guests teared into the GOP and Christians for losing their “conscience” and “selling their souls” for President Trump, whom one guest claimed didn’t even have any notable accomplishments in office to date.
As Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan appeared as a guest on Tuesday's MSNBC Live, fill-in host Kasie Hunt repeatedly pressed her GOP guest on whether his conservative agenda on immigration reform was consistent with "christianity" -- a religion-based angle one would not hear a Democrat being pressed on by journalists on issues like, say, abortion.
It’s certainly no surprise that Sean Hannity disagrees with many of the comments made by Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC. However, the prime-time Fox News Channel host went far further than that during his Thursday program, when he criticized the co-host of Morning Joe for claiming President Trump is “upset” that he can’t access pornography in the White House.
In a segment on The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell Wednesday night, host O’Donnell and guest Ron Klain, former senior Obama aide, wrote the eulogy for the Republican Party in California. Narrowly focusing on Tuesday's Senate primary in which incumbent Democrat Dianne Feinstein was the heavy favorite, the GOP was described as being “wiped out” and Feinstein’s predictable victory as nothing short of “stunning”
Thursday morning on MSNBC, it was just another day at the liberal network, as host Stephanie Ruhle and her anti-Trump guests spent an entire segment repeatedly calling the President a “pig” and gossipping about his alleged preference for pornography.
For weeks, cracks have been emerging in Democratic predictions of a “blue wave.” While discussing the California primary election results early Wednesday morning, host Steve Kornacki, Voto Latino’s Maria Teresa Kumar, The Root’s Jason Johnson, and Commentary’s John Podhoretz discussed concrete evidence from the primary results that undermines predictions of a November Republican rout may be overblown.
During a discussion on Islamophobia in the Republican Party with MSNBC anchor Ayman Mohyeldin Sunday, conversation shifted to Islamophobia on the Left. Summarizing an article by Khaled Beydoun, the author of American Islamophobia, Mohyeldin said, “there's Islamophobia on the rise among the liberals in what is called liberal Islamophobia saying it was more insidious than right wing bigotry."
Religious liberty advocates scored a victory on Monday as the Supreme Court, by a 7-2 decision, ruled that a Christian baker could not be compelled to bake a cake for a gay marriage. MSNBC immediately offered a nothing-to-see-here tone, throwing some cold water on the win. MSNBC Live host Hallie Jackson asked a legal analyst: “Do you believe that religious liberties advocates will try to run a victory lap here?”
Over several days since Thursday, the same MSNBC that ignored reports of some Democratic members of Congress having ties to Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan, have been working in overdrive to highlight a handful of white supremacist political candidates who are running for office as Republicans but most likely will never be elected.
For much of last week, the three broadcast networks and Fox News Channel covered the story of a Baltimore police officer, Amy Caprio, who was killed when a habitual car thief ran her over as he tried to escape when she came to investigate reports of a suspicious car. But CNN and MSNBC again displayed their double standard of showing greater interest in stories that depict police officers behaving badly while ignoring events that illustrate the dangers cops face in doing their jobs to protect Americans.
