Tuesday afternoon MSNBC anchors spent their shows fretting that the largest abortion provider in the country that heavily contributes to Democrats was opting out of Title X government funding over an abortion gag order. Hosts Andrea Mitchell, Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle whined that poor “non-political” women who “depended” on the abortion giant would lose access to “critical health care” because of the Trump administration.
In a segment dubbed “could it happen here”, Deutsch again played around with the idea that Trump was constructing Nazi Germany in our own backyards. “During last week's show two days after Trump's harrowing North Carolina rally, lowlighted by racial chants of ‘send her back’, we posed the question: Could it happen here? It’s nine days later and we're still asking the question,” he announced.
On Wednesday, MSNBC's Jacob Soboroff was again adding to confusion over illegal immigration as he heavily gave the impression that the U.S. Supreme Court had blocked an effort by the Trump administration to keep asylum seekers jailed until their asylum cases are finalized. In fact, as clarified by PBS Newshour's Yamiche Alcindor, the administration was aiming on indefinite detention for asylum seekers who crossed the border illegally since legal asylum seekers are typically not incarcerated.
Along with the rest of his MSNBC colleagues late Thursday night and early Friday after night two of the first 2020 Democratic presidential debate, Hardball host Chris Matthews similarly professed his newfound love for candidate Kamala Harris not just having a good night but “an amazing night in history” which made Matthews wonder whether former Vice President Joe Biden and his candidacy will “survive.”
Following her tussle in Thursday night’s 2020 Democratic presidential debate with former Vice President Joe Biden, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) was promptly touted as a hero on MSNBC’s set by the assembled motley crew of characters, boasting that the “brave” and “powerful” candidate was someone who spoke created “some extraordinary exchanges” and provided “vision” for African-Americans that she could win.
As per usual for MSNBC, facts were not necessary on Thursday before the night two of the first 2020 Democratic presidential debate. Host and Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferer Nicolle Wallace falsely claimed that there’s never been a presidential “candidate to be credibly accused of sexual assault as violent as the rape described by E. Jean” before Donald Trump. Moments earlier, Wallace offered another whopping, insisting that the “[t]he Republican Party is dead” despite currently holding the White House, the Senate, and a Supreme Court majority.
During MSNBC’s post-debate coverage on Wednesday, Saturday Night Politics host Donny Deutsch found himself in rhetorical cage match to the death against Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell after Deutsch opined that Democrat Elizabeth Warren would lose in a landslide to President Trump and that no candidate on night one could currently beat the President.
Awww, hopefully everyone at MSNBC leaves tonight with a comfort animal of their choice. In the first few minutes after the first 2020 Democratic presidential debate on Wednesday, panelists were livid that there wasn’t enough Trump bashing to the point that they wondered whether the candidates consciously decided that the President became a real-life Voldemort who’s name “will not be mentioned.”
In recent appearances on MSNBC, far-left commentator and former CNN contributor Sally Kohn has again been spreading misinformation on the government's handling of illegal immigrants as she has repeated incorrect claims that legal asylum seekers were separated from their children. She also accused Republicans of having "systemically intimidated, threatened, and cracked down on" both "documented and undocumented immigrants."
On Sunday's Kasie DC show, during a segment on the new abortion laws passed by a number of conservative states, MSNBC host Kasie Hunt only made room for reactions from liberals as Planned Parenthood president Leana Weng and National Urban League president Marc Morial were allowed to participate in the segment.
On Sunday's Up with David Gura on MSNBC, during a discussion of the possibility of impeaching President Donald Trump, NPR's Maria Hinojosa suggested that he be impeached for separating illegal immigrant families and putting children in "cages," characterizing it as an "abuse of power," even though she has herself admitted that the Obama administration did similar things. In fact, she did so more than once.
On Sunday's Up with David Gura show on MSNBC, during a panel discussion lambasting White House officials like Kellyanne Conway for pushing "lies" and "propaganda" in their press appearances, the show made an on-screen misspelling that seems unlikely to have been an innocent typo as the chyron misquoted Conway as saying President Donald Trump "commended" neo-Nazis.
