If ever there were a famous Virginian, it is George Washington. Born and raised in Virginia, Mount Vernon was of course his historic home. Yet somehow, a confused Tur has claimed that Washington was a "native son of New York." The unbelievable gaffe occurred today on MSNBC, as Tur handed off her MTP Daily hour to Ari Melber and his The Beat.
Our friend Joe Concha with The Hill was in rare form on Friday’s Fox & Friends, ripping everyone from Chuck Todd for not fact-checking Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) about the Green New Deal to late night comics for their refusal to lampoon her to the double standard regarding the scandals rocking the three state-wide Democrats in Virginia.
Not to gratuitously insult Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but she has to be one of the, um, most lightly-informed pols in a long time to wander onto the national stage. But that didn't stop Chuck Todd from lavishing praise on her. Discussing his just-concluded interview with Ocasio-Cortez with fellow MSNBC host Ari Melber, Todd found reason to variously describe her as thoughtful, refreshing, impressive and smart.
Already a biased journalist on the environment based on his December 30 Meet the Press stunt, MTP Daily host Chuck Todd brought on socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for Thursday’s show to discuss how she views the 2020 field, the Green New Deal, and socialism. Not surprisingly, he operated on her turf and didn’t pressure her on any of the outlandish, Soviet-style proposals outlined hours earlier in the Green New Deal.
In advance of Tuesday’s State of the Union address, the White House told the press that President Trump wanted to use the occasion to hit the reset button on strained relationships in Washington, D.C. and to bring Americans to together. But liberal media folks like MSNBC’s Chuck Todd couldn’t believe it. During that evening’s MTP Daily, Todd denounced Trump’s second SOTU as “shaping up to be a night of absurdist theater”.
There’s an old saying that goes: “If the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.” That was apparently what Democrat Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington was thinking as a guest on Thursday's MTP Daily on MSNBC. Inslee has been in the news since last Friday for declaring an emergency over an outbreak of measles in the Evergreen State, and he attempted to use the same tactic against Howard Schultz, the former Starbucks CEO who has stated that he might join the 2020 presidential contest as an independent.
In a column she wrote over the weekend, Maureen Dowd of The New York Times joined a long list of media personalities who have used the death of President George H.W. Bush to trash President Trump. Dowd contrasted the “narcissistic, amoral, vulgar reality-TV president” with the “modest, principled, classy, old-world president.” She made similar comments Wednesday’s edition of MTP Daily: “in this era of covering white-collar crimes and porn stars and vulgarity...it was nice to look back to someone who was trying to represent decency and civility...that modesty is such contrast to Trump’s endless odyssey of narcissistic self-discovery.” One could just as easily say that Dowd’s descriptions of Bush in 2018 are in such contrast to her comments about him in 1990.
On MTP Daily's "I'm Obsessed With..." segment, MSNBC host Chuck Todd took the time to blame Republicans in Wisconsin and Michigan for bringing an "end to any brief era of good feelings" in the aftermath of former President George H.W. Bush's passing, as he condemned the GOP-controlled state legislatures for curtailing gubernatorial power now that Democrats will assume office as governors in January.
On MTP Daily, Chuck Todd floats a novel theory about who is behind the pipe bombs: "I have this fear that it could be some Russian operation, too, designed to do what's happening now. More of this -- so in some ways we should not rule out -- it is dividing us."
Following what’s become a persistent narrative from the liberal media, Chuck Todd declared on Friday’s MTP Daily that the midterm message put forth by President Trump (and, by extension, the GOP) has been “a heavy dose of a bit of fear-mongering, conspiracy theories and even some mob-style antics.” Ah yes, so Todd is going to insinuate that Trump’s GOP are the real mob and not the left.
There is nothing Judge Brett Kavanaugh can do to clear his name in the eyes of the ravenous liberal media. Even after his interview on Fox News in which he defended himself and his reputation from the dubious allegations, it drew the ire of those who wanted his nomination to fail. During Tuesday’s MTP Daily on MSNBC, host Chuck Todd slapped the Supreme Court nominee with a “partisan warrior” label for the effort.
In the Democratic kangaroo court, the burden of proof is on the accused -- when he's a Republican. On Monday's MTP Daily, Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) said: "it is Judge Kavanaugh who is seeking a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, and who I think now bears the burden of disproving these allegations, rather than Dr. Ford and Ms. Ramirez."
