MSNBC Live with Thomas Roberts
First they came for the statues, now they are coming for the national anthem. The left wants to rip the virtue of patriotism from the public eye. For some progressives, it isn’t enough that NFL players use the anthem for their protest. The anthem itself is a problem. On Sunday, on MSNBC Live with Thomas Roberts, actor Jesse Williams (Grey’s Anatomy) expressed his opinion on Trump, the national anthem, and the NFL. He believed that the NFL was owned by Trump supporters who were “close friends with a very horrible guy who thinks he’s a dictator.”
On Saturday, climate change again became a source of blame for Hurricane Harvey and its path of destruction along the Texas coastline as it moved inland where it has since dropped biblical-like amounts of flooding in the Houston area. Two hosts on CBS and MSNBC invoked climate change, without taking into account things like steering currents.
In the wake of the London Bridge terrorist attack, President Trump sent off some questionable political tweets where he called for a travel ban and criticized the mayor of London. The tweets were very much a part of the media coverage on Sunday, and it came with heavy condemnation. But during the 12 p.m. hour on MSNBC, anchor Thomas Roberts actually suggested Trump’s tweets were designed to trigger a terrorist to attack civilians in the United States. And he did it, not once but twice.
Amidst MSNBC’s day-long propaganda effort on Saturday for the Women’s March on Washington, correspondent Stephanie Gosk fawned over how the far-left participants “aren’t protesters” because “[t]hey’ve never protested before” and came “from all over the country, a lot of them with their children, with their daughters.”
In light of the bombshell Fox News Channel report on Wednesday night about the Clinton Foundation, the liberal media’s shameful cover-up and smearing of the story continued well into Thursday afternoon as MSNBC acknowledged the story but repeatedly chided Fox News perpetuating a story using “anonymous sources” that’s not “corroborated or substantiated.”
Right on cue with the conclusion of Thursday’s rally between Hillary Clinton and First Lady Michelle Obama, CNN and MSNBC went numb in praising Obama’s “master class in political speech-making” and marveling at “even just the embrace, the way the two walked out the embrace between the two, the clearly — the gratitude, the heaping of praise from, you know, Hillary Clinton to the First Lady.”
Along with the FBI doing its part for the Clinton campaign by dumping on the Friday afternoon of Labor Day weekend its notes from their interview of Hillary Clinton concerning her e-mail scandal, MSNBC swept some of the most disturbing elements under the rug in its first two segments on it and concluded that they’ve helped them see “a little bit better why Director Comey” didn’t recommend charges.
The liberal (disguised as non-partisan) voter registration group Rock the Vote received some free airtime on Friday afternoon’s MSNBC Live as host Thomas Roberts welcomed on celebrity backer and vulgar Netflix host Chelsea Handler to promote the group plus her plea for young women to vote so that more abortion-loving judges could end up on the Supreme Court.
Appearing on MSNBC in the 10 a.m. ET hour on Tuesday to perform a supposed “fact check” of Donald Trump’s Monday foreign policy speech, PolitiFact editor Angie Holan denounced the Republican nominee’s statement that “The rise of ISIS is the direct result of policy decisions made by President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton.”
During MSNBC’s 10 a.m. ET hour on Wednesday, anchor Thomas Roberts gloated that the latest Donald Trump controversy pushed another Hillary Clinton scandal out of the headlines: “Trump’s comments continue to hurt his overall message, this time distracting from a potentially damaging release of e-mails that could have cost the Clinton camp precious support among independents.”
MSNBC went into spin mode for Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, after the father of Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen was seated behind the Democrat at a rally in Florida. Stephanie Ruhle replied to the development by stating, "I don't know what I think, but it's definitely noteworthy." Thomas Robert remarked that it was "very interesting," and hyped that it was "certainly a reflection of the Clinton camp to respond so quickly about what that means."
Moments after the Supreme Court handed down a ruling on Monday morning that struck down a pro-life Texas law, MSNBC Live host Thomas Roberts brought on none other than former Democratic Texas State Senator and liberal hero Wendy Davis to discuss how she “was fighting back tears” seconds before her live shot and inquired about “where those pink sneakers are” from her 2013 filibuster for abortion.
