President Trump drew tremendous criticism from the liberal media when he noted that there was violence in Charlottesville, Virginia “on all side.” But despite its own hammering of the President, MSNBC brought on a staunch supporter of Antifa during MTP Daily to champion their violent approach to stopping opponents, as they displayed in Charlottesville. Host Chuck Todd, a self-proclaimed political referee, offered little to no push back against his violently radical guest.
During MSNBC’s 1 p.m. ET hour on Wednesday, NBC News correspondent Morgan Radford turned to the one regime on earth most like the Nazis in order lecture the United States on race relations. The reporter actually cited a tweet from Iran’s brutal anti-Semitic dictator Ali Khamenei as an example of “global criticism” of President Trump’s reaction to Charlottesville.
Following President Trump’s controversial news conference on Tuesday regarding the deadly Charlottesville violence perpetrated by white supremacists, on MSNBC on Wednesday, anchor Stephanie Ruhle and political contributor Steve Schmidt hurled a nasty smear against Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, who was present at the event for an announcement about the nation’s infrastructure.
On Tuesday’s Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews irresponsibly dabbled in fake/false news by claiming that Republicans and those in GOP leadership haven’t spoken out against President Trump’s handling of the Charlottesville violence, including his Tuesday afternoon press conference. Matthews was squabbling with frequent Hardball guest and GOP strategist John Brabender when he went down that path (despite Brabender largely agreeing with Matthews).
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was back and firing on all cylinders Monday night, overseeing a show devoid of reason as it linked conservatives, Republicans, and anyone in the “right-wing” to the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists associated with Saturday’s Charlottesville terrorism. Matthews also showed ineptitude in not knowing that progressive heartthrob and President Woodrow Wilson loved the KKK film Birth of a Nation so much that he had it shown at the White House.
During Monday’s MTP Daily, MSNBC’s Katy Tur proved once again she wasn’t ready for prime time when she got into a heated argument with Ohio Representative Mike Tuner about whether or not President Trump had ever denounced hate groups during the 2016 campaign. “I don't think he did. I was there every day,” she chided her guest who was accurately saying Trump did.
Journalistic integrity took another Monday afternoon on MSNBC, with another casualty in the liberal plot to paint President Trump as a closet neo-Nazi Klansman. Piling in on the liberal media frenzy following Saturday’s sad events at Charlottesville, MSNBC’s Chris Jansing anchored a segment with Trump critic Mark Potok, formerly of the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Moments after President Trump condemned white supremacists by name during a White House address on Monday about the violence in Charlottesville, a panel of MSNBC reporters and pundits immediately proclaimed that the President “didn’t do enough” and should not get credit for meeting the “lowest possible bar.”
MSNBC’s Katy Tur weighed into the Charlottesville controversy as she interviewed Black Lives Matter creator, Patrisse Cullors, Monday afternoon. Seeking Ms. Cullors opinion on the matter, Tur allowed for her to incessantly rant about how the Trump base was composed of white nationalists that were seeking to overrun the country. “The white supremacists who showed up to Charlottesville, that is Trump's base.” Cullors emphatically declared, “And that base is not isolated. It is directly related to Trump's policies and the policies that have continued to harm and kill black people and our allies.” Tur offered no pushback to this nor any questions citing Black Lives Matter previously violent history in context of the current situation.
The panel of Morning Joe erupted with outrage Monday morning over President Trump’s response to the Charlottesville rally. Willie Geist noted a “pattern” being at work, stating, “There's always this beat, this pause, this wink and he did it again on Saturday where it happened on many sides.” New York Times reporter Yamiche Alcindor agreed as she noted her own experiences in encountering pro-Trump white nationalists at the 2016 RNC convention. The criticism crescendoed, however, with Donny Deutsch, who denounced Trump as a “pathetic, sniveling man” before screaming, “No, he is a racist. He is a racist! Can we just say it once and for all?”
During Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, during discussions of the white racist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, White House advisors were repeatedly referred to by panel members as "Nazis" or "white supremacists." And in one segment, as the group fretted over Colin Kaepernick's outcast status in the NFL, ESPN columnist William C. Rhoden oddly claimed that "a lot of players" in both the NFL and Major League Baseball "have kind of support from these people -- the Nazis or white supremacists," as host Joy Reid responded in agreement.
MRC's Brent Baker caught a nasty attack from Hollywood director Rob Reiner on MSNBC's airwaves Saturday after the news broke that a woman counter-protesting white supremacists was hit and killed by a car backing up at extreme speed. Reiner called Trump an "accessory" to the death for "stoking this stuff" of white resentment. Reiner recently tweeted about the need for "all-out war" on the president.
