After Iowa Democrats embarrassed themselves in front of the whole country, MSNBC Live's Stephanie Ruhle took to the air on Tuesday to express to Maryland Sen. Chris Van Hollen her concern that the debacle will hurt Democrats' ability to portray Republicans as being indifferent to concerns about election security.
MSNBC political analyst and former Clinton campaign aide Zerlina Maxwell claimed first time caucus-goer turnout in Iowa was low Monday night because white people don’t care about “brown kids in cages.” She also blamed “systemic racism” for Iowa having a white voter majority.
MSNBC’s unhinged liberal panel continued their emotional downward spiral all the way into Friday morning, after Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) revealed he would be voting against bringing in witnesses for the impeachment trial. The New York Times’ editorial board member Mara Gay was so distraught, she fretted it was “too late” for “our democracy” and we would be just like Russia or Venezuela, if Democrats did not get their way.
The New York Times editorial board's decision to endorse two candidates, Senators Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar, was met with both confusion and mockery. After an overly pretentious process, the board settled on the dual endorsement which isn't really an endorsement. Still, editorial board deputy editor Kathleen Kingsbury joined MSNBC Live guest host Chris Jansing on Monday to try to defend and rationalize the decision.
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.
At the end of the 3 pm hour on MSNBC, Ali Velshi brought on Michael Kirk, the executive producer of the long-running (left-spinning) PBS documentary series Frontline. Velshi highlighted a video clip focusing on Sarah Palin as an avatar of division in the Obama years...and never mentioned that in 2013, MSNBC afternoon host Martin Bashir resigned in disgrace after insisting she should literally be force-fed human feces. So who again was divisive in the Obama years?
Given the many embarrassments the Iranian regime has suffered over the last week it is hard to see the strike that took out Qasem Soleimani as anything but a win for the United States, but that didn't stop MSNBC Live from declaring Russia to be the big winner, because of course it is.
Not only is the economy doing well, but people's perceptions about the economy are also positive. On Thursday's MSNBC Live, host Stephanie Ruhle declared that such positive economic indicators "should concern Democrats looking ahead to November" because voters are giving President Trump credit for them.
MSNBC's Tehran bureau chief Ali Arouzi, who on Tuesday evening recklessly repeated Iranian state media claims that 30 American soldiers were killed during Tuesday night's missile attack, was at it again on Wednesday on MSNBC Live with Hallie Jackson where he declared, contrary to all evidence, that Ayatollah Khamenei was getting exactly what he wanted.
Concerned that President Trump may not have fully thought through the possible ramifications of droning Qasem Soleimani, MSNBC Live host Stephanie Ruhle wondered on Monday why Trump suddenly trusts the intelligence agencies. Ironically, the answer she got from the panel showed it was MSNBC that is the one that apparently has problems trusting the IC.
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.
NBC News continues to bury its credibility by promoting MSNBC liberal anchor Stephanie Ruhle to be their new senior business correspondent.
