MSNBC appear to be trying their hand at comedy, and the results are not pretty. On Wednesday, MTP Daily aired a satirical commercial for a fake drug called Oblivia, which purported to give users “relief from the nonstop pressure” of the high-speed news cycle.
When people think of the liberal venom coming from MSNBC, many would single out Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow or Lawrence O’Donnell. But the 9am hour has quietly become another home on the network for angry rants. On Wednesday, guests compared Donald Trump to a dictator and somehow linked Trump’s White House speech on Tuesday to the assassination of Robert Kennedy.
Doing their part to drive another wedge into the polarizing NFL debate over national anthem protests, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews proclaimed on Tuesday night that President Trump’s strategy is to make “white guys” attending NFL games “hate” the predominantly African-American players while a panelist deemed Trump supporters on the kneeling debate to be “morons.”
In an interview on MSNBC's Morning Joe on Tuesday, Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) was unable to name the leader of the Democratic Party. Just two years removed after Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton failed to inspire Barack Obama's coalition of supporters, the lawmaker seemed to admit that the party again had found itself at a standstill.
One of the Democrats’ greatest assets this November may be turning into a liability. Yesterday, during a segment on MSNBC’s The 11th Hour with Brian Williams, host Williams and Associated Press White House News Editor Nancy Benac discussed the ramifications of Bill Clinton’s recent NBC interview on the Democrats’ chances at the polls.
From Roseanne Barr’s firing to the President condemning MS-13, liberal journalists found new ways to tarnish Donald Trump and his supporters as racist this past month. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes used the Roseanne Barr controversy to condemn Trump voters as he deemed her racist reference to former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett “represented the actual worldview of a significant chunk of the Trump base.” The New York Times’ Michael Eric Dyson trashed that “bigot-in-chief” Trump had “unleashed” America’s racism. The following are the worst liberal outbursts over the last month from lefty journalists and celebrities.
The Chicken Littles of cable news are in a full-scale panic over the latest fantasy disaster that hasn’t happened yet. Over the weekend, TV talking heads burst into flame in anticipation of the supposed “constitutional crisis” that might ensue if President Trump were to pardon himself – which he has not done, and which his lawyer has flatly stated he “has no intention” of doing.
On Monday, NBC anchors tore into former President Bill Clinton's response to the #MeToo movement in light of his contentious interview with reporter Craig Melvin on the Today show.
Appearing on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports on Monday, USA Today Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page was baffled by former President Bill Clinton not having a “ready answer” to questions about sexual harassment during a testy exchange with NBC reporter Craig Melvin. The irony of Page’s concern was that she didn’t even bother to press Clinton on the issue during a softball interview she conducted with him over the weekend.
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.
There isn't enough room in a single post for all of the contempt and ridicule NBC's latest hiring move deserves. The PR department at its MSNBC cable outlet waited until early Saturday morning to tweet its announcement that Ben Rhodes, the Obama administration's Deputy National Strategic Advisor for Strategic Communications, would be joining both NBC and MSNBC as a "Political Contributor." Who knew that systematically misleading and ridiculing the press while in office in the name of selling the fatally flawed Iran nuclear "deal" would be a resumé enhancer?
