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."
Often inaccurate MSNBC host Katy Tur had the knives out from the get-go during Monday’s MTP Daily. From the opening intro, she was looking to get a piece of White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, even going so far as to question why the former Marine Corp general continued to be employed by the White House. Tur and her panel essentially were calling for the Gold Star father to be fired.
Over the past couple of days, CNN and MSNBC have been freaking out over another Trump administration activity that was also done by the Obama administration which the liberal media only just noticed because they're so fixated on trying to find examples of President Donald Trump mistreating immigrants. Even though both the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations sometimes denied passports to residents of southern Texas who were suspected of having fraudulent birth certificates that conceal they were actually born in Mexico, a number of liberal anchors have shown shock over questionable reports that such activity might have increased substantially under Trump.
Chuck Todd just lives in his own little world, doesn’t he? The MTP Daily host on Thursday again lashed out at claims of liberal media bias, lamenting that “false accusations” against the press caused journalists to question themselves. Talking about accusations of censorship against Facebook and Twitter, Todd whined: “One of the mistakes we in the mainstream media made during when these false allegations against us for being biased for 40 years happened is we started believing, ‘oh, maybe we are biased.’ ‘Oh, wait, we can’t look biased.’ So, then, we created a lot of false equivalency issues.”
Just when you thought MSNBC host Chuck Todd could get any more ridiculous, he sets a new gold standard for himself. If you were to believe Todd’s ramblings during Tuesday’s MTP Daily, you would think President Trump “just wants to rationalize violence” after he warned a group of evangelical leaders about Antifa’s terrorist-like actions. But in reality, it was Todd who was the one rationalizing violence.
On Monday's MTP Daily on MSNBC, during a discussion of the fact that President Donald Trump's approval rating has stayed the same in spite of recent bad news, fill-in host Katy Tur was exasperated as she was clearly cheering for his approval rating to fall, and wondered if there was any reason to be "optimistic" that it would. Longtime MSNBC contributor Jonathan Alter described people as "deluded" who think Trump is doing a good job as President.
The New York Times sure knows how to pick them, don't they? Trump-Derangement Syndrome sufferer and writer for the national newspaper Michelle Goldberg was on MSNBC’s MTP Daily August 17 to apparently promote the completely original idea that Trump is a dictator. Not only that, but he clearly wants to see people round up and murdered. Obviously!
